Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I always ate whatever I wanted growing up, and eventually around the age of 35, it hit me. My weight had ballooned. I had tried many weight-loss programs prior to Beachbody, but none of them made me feel healthy. Even with the weight loss I achieved on those programs, I was lethargic with no strength. I eventually gave up, and my weight went back up. I’m now on my third round of 21 Day Fix, and I’ve dropped the weight and built the strength. I’ve never felt so strong and full of energy. I used to believe weight loss without exercise was okay, but now I know that is not the case. This journey has challenged me in so many ways, from self-control to time management.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I grew up in a family that did not value healthy habits and eating clean. My father is obese, and I remember as a child feeling sad that he had so many health issues. I promised myself I would become a role model for my daughters, unlike how my father was for me. My journey is for myself and for my children.
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 had faced was meal prep and the lack of believing that Shakeology/exercise/meal prep would work for me. I’m a foodie and I hate restrictions. But I was surprised that this plan worked and the amount of food I had was sufficient. It was the lack of wholesome foods that was hurting my diet. I’ve learned so much, and having a Coach helped me through it. I now am a Coach and hope to help others on their journey!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I like the meal prep method, the color containers, and the exercise program. It is all very easy to use and the iPhone app makes it much easier!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
20.4 pounds of weight loss, more energy, increased confidence, and better eating habits. I’m most proud of the weight loss.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have a new wardrobe, and I no longer hide in baggy clothing! I speak with confidence and share my story! I genuinely want to help as many people as I can. I have energy surplus! My kids have changed their eating habits as well watching their dad. They now want to exercise with me!
