Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have always been overweight. I had never eaten right and did not exercise at all. I felt uncomfortable in my own body, and I was extremely depressed about my weight. I could not run and play with my children. I could not walk up the stairs of my home without being out of breath.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Right after my daughter’s seventh birthday, I was looking at pictures and could not stand the person I was looking at. I jumped on the scale, and realized I was at the highest weight I had ever been. I knew I had to do something. I wanted to stick around for many more birthdays.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
To start, I could barely even follow the modifier. Now I am following mostly all of the moves, and I can now hold a plank for 60 seconds! Beyond proud of that!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The portion cups. I can’t overeat with them.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost 100 pounds! This was my first big goal!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am not done yet, but I have more energy. I can now walk up and down my steps several times a day without being winded. I run and play with my kids, and I feel so much better. I can even run a mile now in less than 12 minutes!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I got so much encouragement from the other members of the group, and it really helped me to keep going! I could not have done it without them.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
He is my husband and my biggest supporter! He helped motivate me and keep me on track. He encouraged me when I would have bad days or a bad week. He kept me going and is still keeping me going. He’s been my number one fan!
How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, or digestion/regularity?
I have so much more energy since I started drinking Shakeology. I don’t need coffee anymore to keep me awake!
