Instead of wishing that her life would change, Veronica made the change happen so she could be the best version of herself for her family.

Veronica’s Life, Before
“Before I started my journey with Beachbody, I knew nothing about how to eat healthy, portion control, or exercise. I had been relatively small most of my teenage and young adult life with little to no effort.
When I was 22, I gave birth to my first son and completely lost myself. I gained 65 pounds with that pregnancy and never lost any of it. I consumed mostly snacks and leftovers and never worked out. I was usually exhausted and lacked self-esteem and confidence.
Three years later, I became pregnant with my second son and gained an additional 30 pounds.
After giving birth the second time, I remember feeling horrible about myself, like I was stuck in a body that didn’t match my spirit.
I was always tired and irritable and uncomfortable. I lacked motivation and energy. I realized I could not go on living this way, and that I needed to make a change — not only for me but for my boys as well.”
“My favorite part about 21 Day Fix, initially, was the modifier. I was a beginner starting from scratch without much confidence or knowledge.
The modifier allowed me to keep up with the moves. As I became more comfortable, I loved the amount of knowledge I acquired about working out, in general, and the different exercises. I also learned so much about proper form from Autumn.
The results I have achieved are amazing! In about nine months, I lost 78 pounds. I gained strength and muscles that I have never had before.
When I started, I couldn’t bring myself to take measurements of my body because of sheer embarrassment of what the numbers would be, a decision I regret immensely now, because I am positive the inches lost would be astounding.
In addition to the outward physical results, I have gained the self-esteem, confidence, and energy I had been lacking for some time.
In general, I have more motivation in all aspects of my life. Through this program, I have acquired an overall peace and happiness with my body, my health, and my life!!!”
Veronica’s Life, After
“I think the biggest change is that I prioritize my health now, which is something I have never done before. My daily workouts are the one time I focus completely on myself. It’s my ‘me time’ and it’s critical to my day.
Being the mom of two little boys who are ALWAYS full of energy requires a lot of energy and stamina. I am able to keep up with my boys and be the fun, active mom I have always wanted to be!”
