Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting Beachbody, I was overweight, feeling sad, and depressed because I was constantly visiting the doctor due to my unhealthy habits. I had high cholesterol and was always sick. I hated the way I looked. I relied on junk food for comfort not realizing that I was only hurting myself at the end of the day!

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My children inspired me to make a change. After giving birth to my second child, I had a hard time loosing the baby weight. One day, while playing at the park with my children, I had difficulties breathing and couldn’t continue playing with them. So the next day I visited the doctor. The reason why I was feeling out of breath was because I was unhealthy and overweight for my height. The doctor requested I make a change or things would just get worse. That day, I was so disappointed and ashamed with myself that I just knew it was time to put an end to all my excuses and finally make a change. My children mean the world to me, and I want to be able to live a long healthy life to see them grow old.

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 faced was constantly having a low self esteem and under estimating myself. My total lifestyle was negative! But, after weeks of doing Brazil Butt Lift, I started noticing a change in my physical appearance. Even though this was probably the biggest obstacle I experienced in my life at the time, mentally, I became focused. I finally began to feel more comfortable in my own skin, and I slowly started to gain my self-confidence back! The conversations and thoughts I had all shifted to positive ones!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The results I achieved were beyond what I had expected. I was able to lose over 50 pounds and even get a nice 6 pack after having 2 kids! I feel and look amazing. I am very proud of all my achievements, especially for not ever giving up and staying 100% committed 🙂

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed in so many great ways! I am now a fit and healthy mom who enjoys playing at the park with her kids and feels great about herself. Since my transformation, I’ve decided to become a Team Beachbody Coach and pay it forward by helping others achieve their fitness and healthy lifestyle goals! It feels great, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in this world. Thank you, Beachbody!
