Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started my fineness journey, my self-esteem was on the floor. I did not like how my shorts would look on me. I would have to unbuckle all my jeans in order to sit down comfortably. I would eat fast food every other day. I would have chips and soda very late at night. I would drink three sodas per day. It was nothing but eating bad since I woke up until I went to sleep.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I got inspired after my 5-year-old told me that I was getting fat. Not only that, but I would be out of breath way easier than before. I didn’t feel good in my own skin so I knew I had to do something about it. After my second pregnancy, the weight came rapidly and I did not know what to do. I was scared that I might get diagnosed with diabetes at such a young age. I knew then that I had to make a change, not only for me, but for my family.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge has to be eating healthy. I love anything with sugar in it. I love eating out. Every time I would go to the store, I wanted to buy some chips, chocolate, soda; everything unhealthy I wanted to eat. I struggled the first week so much. But thanks to the shake, it minimized my craving for all that junk food. The support I had from my team and Coach was unbelievable. They got me through this journey.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that the workouts were only 30 minutes long and weren’t that complex. I have never liked working out, but the 21 Day Fix was a great beginning.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My best result has to be losing six inches off my waist. That was my main area of focus. I did not want to lose any weight and this program totally helped.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Yes. I no longer feel the need to eat unhealthy. I can’t wait to drink my shake and do my workouts. I’m more active, I do not run out of breath, and I’m a better version of me!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Participating in a Challenge Group definitely helped out a lot. It held me accountable for posting my workout pictures, my meals, and the time of day I would drink my shake. If it wasn’t for that, I don’t think I would have finished my challenge.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
He did an incredible job. He pushed me past my limits and there were no excuses for not finishing my workouts.
