Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I used to be a jogging, dancing, and exercise buff. I always took care of my well-being. About 10 years ago I went into a tailspin. I went through a traumatic divorce and lost my career job. Since then I have been floundering trying to find myself and employment. I sat around and chose to do nothing. I gained 80 pounds and was becoming very unhealthy. I did not want to go out and visit friends or family and would not even go to my class reunions as I was embarrassed with my appearance. A defining moment was when I could not even bend over and clip my toenails.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I had an annual physical and my doctor told me I was extremely obese. I was worried about high blood pressure, being pre-diabetic, borderline high cholesterol, and just feeling horrible. My doctor advised me that I needed to do something about my health now. Also, my kids were very concerned about my health and encouraged me to make a transformation. My daughter, who is a Beachbody Coach encouraged me to start with TurboFire and Shakeology. She ensured me that if I made the transformation that I would look at life completely differently. She was right.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I just did not have any motivation whatsoever. I had tried several forms of exercise before with failure, so was not very inspired to try yet another program. It took about three months to start to see any results. I was ready to give up. With the encouragement of my kids, especially my Beachbody Coach/daughter, I started to see results, which in and of itself was very inspiring. I kept going… I am now on my third program and I am even jogging 1 day a week. Life is good, I have a positive outlook, and I am in the best health of my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
There were modifications for all fitness levels and the instructors were very motivating.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost over 90 pounds. My resting pulse is down to 63 from 84. I went from a size 22 to size 12. Before my transformation, clothes shopping was a chore and very disappointing as nothing would fit because I was huge. It is so nice to go into a clothing store and pick a clothing item and saying “I can wear this”, without any effort or disappointment. Also, my diet has changed and I am much more conscious about portion and control and quality of foods. Finally, I am now able to clip my toenails without effort.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have tons of energy and love to exercise. I go out to visit family and friends without hesitation. I walk with my head high and am very proud of my new look. I have a completely good attitude towards everything I approach. I now realize that I am the only one who can change how my life will be now and going forward.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She was there every step of the way. There were days when I just wanted to give up. She kept encouraging me and told me that she was very proud of me no matter what and that I would be very pleased with the end result and not to give up. She told me that my entire outlook on life would change if I just kept trying. She was right.
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?
I love Shakeology. It curbed my cravings. I felt full all morning. I know that my body is getting nutrients that I would otherwise not get with diet alone. I always have fruit and milk with my Shakeology so that I get calcium, vitamin D, and a fruit in my daily diet, which is important in menopause. I have tons of energy, I sleep better, and my attitude and how I approach life’s up and downs has completely changed.2
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc…)
My doctor is very proud of my accomplishments. He stated that I have achieved what 90% of the population has not been able to do. I now have lower blood pressure, low blood sugar, and lower cholesterol. I no longer have a stomach overhang, back boobs, and a double ass.
