Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt absolutely terrible about myself and my body. I was embarrassed to go to nice events or anywhere in public where someone might know me. I hated going clothes shopping knowing the size of pants and shirts I had to buy. I did not think anything looked good on me. I had no self-esteem.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My beachbody Coach contacted me and asked me to join one of her groups. I was nervous to join at first. But she was so inspiring and so where the other people in our fitness group. It kept me going. The embarrassment I felt, being tired all the time, and low self esteem made me really want to change my life. Wanting my children to be healthy has also inspired me to keep going.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was being lazy and potatoes! I learned I needed good fuel to run a healthy body. Chalene in TurboFire also says, “Abs start in the kitchen.” That has really stuck with me.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Chalene Johnson was full of so much energy and happiness about working out. This energy really helped keep me going. I loved how upbeat the workouts are. They are so much fun!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am so proud of all the healthy foods I now eat. I am proud of the healthy decisions I now make. I am proud to be wearing a size 6 jean instead of a size 16. I have achieved more self-esteem and happiness. I am stronger than I was before. I went from a XL shirt to a small shirt.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since completing the program, I am a lot more active than I ever was. I don’t drive around waiting in the parking lot to find the closest spot so I don’t have to walk as far. I walk to get the mail instead of driving my car to get it. I eat healthy, and I feel better about what I eat. I feel healthier. I enjoy playing with my children more now, too. Before, I wanted to just sit around and be lazy instead up playing with them. Beachbody has changed my whole life! I love it.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Being in a Challenge Group is amazing. Seeing everyone staying active makes me want to stay active. If they can do it, I can do it, too! Knowing others are watching and wanting to know how I am doing keeps me going. It’s great to see other group members’ healthy meal ideas, too.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Team Beachbody Coach is AMAZING! Everyday she has new information about how we can change our diets to something better. Brittney also has great meal ideas and wonderful, short workouts to do in a pinch. Any and every question I have, she is right there to answer it.
