21 Day Fix Results: This 55 Year-Old Lost 22 Pounds

Theresa M, age 55 from Westminster, CA, lost 22.5 pounds in 2.5 months with 21 Day Fix. She entered her 21 Day Fix results into The Beachbody Challenge and won $1,000! (Theresa is an Independent Beachbody Coach.)

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I noticed my sister losing weight. She mentioned a Challenge Group was coming up. She came to my house to set me up here on Beachbody and to choose my challenge pack. When I saw the price, I said I couldn’t afford it. My husband was listening in and threw a $100 bill at me and said “you can’t afford not to do it”. I didn’t know whether to kiss him or to be insulted by saying “You think I am too fat?” Ha-Ha I was fat! Anyhow, I feel great, I feel pretty again and all my foot pain and other body aches and pains a woman at my age usually gets went away!

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My sister was my inspiration. She shared the private FB page she was attached to “Faithfully Fit”, and I was impressed with the support and all the results I was seeing with other people with 21 Day Fix and Shakeology. I was tired a lot and had too many aches and pains, couldn’t sleep at night, was uncomfortable in my clothing. I just wasn’t happy with myself!

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I was fit all my life. I was a professional dancer and I am still teaching dance. I felt self conscious about my weight being a dance teacher, but I covered myself well, and would crack jokes and make excuses to justify my weight. After having a baby at age 46, and then menopause in my early 50’s, the weight piled on. After just a few days on the Beachbody program I was hooked, seeing results right away and I was sleeping all night again! I had more energy, color in my face and started to feel pretty again. My mental health and clarity improved. I feel so happy. I feel so great! Thank you so much Beachbody!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Easy to follow and did not take too much time. Being age 55 I appreciate the modifications that I needed for certain exercises due to old dance injuries. This program is doable for anyone who doesn’t have too many physical limitations.


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The answer to this question is short and simple: losing 22 pounds! I am also proud of my healthier choices in food, and how much more educated I am with food that is on the market. It has been an eye opening experience.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My husband is loving on me more. He calls me “pretty bird” again. My son loves that I can keep up with him longer now. I ride bikes and run and play with him more. I used to last a few minutes and then be “too tired” The good night’s sleep I get now has changed me mentally and I do much better with all my daily tasks. I feel like Wonder Woman now!

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The support is amazing. I love the mini challenges that they have each week. I won 2 of the 3 in my first Challenge Group, won 1 in the second round of a Challenge Group, and won another one in the last Challenge Group I just finished. I am so pumped and inspired by the people in the Challenge Groups. Jennifer has been an amazing support each and every day!

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She contacted me either through private message or through FB challenge group comments. She was such a wonderful encouragement!

How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology rocks! I don’t know how I lived with it before going on my health and fitness journey. I have never missed a day having it, and each morning I can’t wait to have it for breakfast. It is so amazing! Like I have mentioned in my previous answers to previous questions in this questionnaire, I sleep better, have better energy. My hair looks great, my skin is better, I am no longer depressed, my granuloma anulare disappeared on my arm, my plantar fascitis in my foot went away, my hip aches and pains are now gone…. I could go on forever! I feel great!
