Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started my journey, I was eating everything that I saw. I would also eat right before I went to bed, usually milk and cookies. I didn’t notice that I was getting bigger until my uniform started to get tighter. I am in the Army, and I try to stay in some kind of shape in order to pass my PT test. I would always pass my PT test, but it wasn’t by much. Once I noticed that I was getting bigger and slower, I wasn’t happy with myself. This lead to more unhealthy eating and lack of motivation.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was inspired to change after I saw my weight at the heaviest it had ever been. I also had a pretty good gut too. I knew that if I didn’t do something, it would lead to more unhealthy choices. I wanted to be able to keep up with my kids and not have to stop to catch my breath.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge was changing the way that I ate. I would eat everything that I saw, no matter what it was. I started my journey with the 21 Day Fix. When I saw the containers, I thought that I was going to be very hungry for 21 days. But, once I started, I didn’t go hungry. Once I started Focus T25, I was used to eating healthier foods, so the transition from the 21 Day Fix meal plan to Focus T25 meal plan wasn’t hard. I used the Team Beachbody website to find some great recipes for both 21 Day Fix and Focus T25.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I was amazed with the results I achieved from both the 21 Day Fix and Focus T25. I am proud of all of my achievements. I lost 41 lbs. I lowered my body fat percentage. I can now keep up with my kids. Overall, I have more energy, and I feel amazing.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
After completing the 21 Day Fix and Focus T25, I eat healthier, and I feel amazing. I have so much more energy to do things. I am able to keep up with my kids. Sometimes, they ask me to stop so they can catch their breath. It is awesome to be able to enjoy life and not be disappointed by my weight.
