Meet Rebecca N. She lost 47 lbs with 21 Day Fix. She entered her results into The Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for June 17th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting my weight loss journey, I was stressed, burnt out, and not taking good care of my body. I was eating for convenience and to deal with the emotional stress of being a single mom to a special needs daughter. My self esteem was at rock bottom and I hated looking in the mirror. I was constantly overwhelmed with depression and anxiety.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I wanted to set a good example for my daughter. I wanted her to see me taking care of my body by fueling it with nutritious fuel and exercising. I wanted to teach her how to love her body, and I just couldn’t do that for myself with the way I looked. After struggling with depression and anxiety for many years, I wanted to try a natural lifestyle change to improve that.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Exercise intimidated me. Classes were expensive and my time was very limited due to being a single parent. I tried many eating plans but found them too restrictive with they cut out entire food groups.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
21 Day Fix allowed me to eat many of the foods I normally would, I just had to choose healthier options for those foods and control my portions. I could still have grains or cheese, just in limited amounts and healthier forms. The exercise plan didn’t seem so intimidating because it was only 30 minutes a day and I could do it from home.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My first round gave me amazing results. I was no longer bloated, I had more energy, and my mood improved. I started to actually feel confident about my body. I learned to enjoy and look forward to my daily exercise and healthy meal planning.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
For one of the first times in my life I feel strong, confident, and healthy! I don’t dread going clothes shopping. I am proud to set a healthy example for my daughter.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
My Group set up by my Coach was extremely supportive. Checking in often and sharing results was a huge motivation for me to push through.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach was such a huge part of my journey. She is always enthusiastic and motivating. She answers all my questions and checks in often. She is genuinely happy for me and my progress.
