Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I joined this Challenge Group, I felt like I was an insecure shell of who I was supposed to me. I was tired all the time and though I kept telling myself I wanted to eat better and work out, I told myself I simply didn’t have enough time for that. I hated taking pictures of myself. I rarely, if ever, would exercise. I would always try to diet on my own, but constantly struggled to lose weight and keep it off. Nothing seemed to be going well. I had given up. I told myself I just wasn’t meant to be happy, and I certainly would never be skinny.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
There are many reasons why I did this. I wanted to get control of my eating and my cravings. I had just graduated from college, and I wanted to feel better in my clothes and hopefully go down a size. I was not happy with how I looked, and realized that I hated getting my picture taken. I wanted to feel attractive and confident in my own beautiful, unique body!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced, after so many failures in the past, was giving up control and trusting the program and the process. Believing that if I followed the guidelines, that this time would be different. That this time, I would do it the healthy way. The lasting way. I have never been able to maintain a stable, healthy weight and actually feel good about myself and my body! I am still a work in progress, but I have never felt so happy and great in my own skin in just 21 days!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Using the Beachbody programs helped me get fit and healthy. I have learned proper nutrition that will be part of my lifestyle for a very long time. To date, I have lost 18 pounds and 11 inches off my body. I feel amazing! I have energy that I have not felt since high school.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
