Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My life before Beachbody was pitiful. I was overweight, and I had aches and pains that I shouldn’t have at the age of 30. I was the most negative person you could meet! I was unhappy and never saw the positive in anything! I always went to a gym, but felt like my body never looked any different. I hated when I had to look in the mirror because I felt I was working hard but not seeing a difference. I honestly would tell myself I had the eggplant shape.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
What inspired me to change was that I was sick of seeing no results. I realized that at the age of 30, I shouldn’t be having pain in the knees and back. Plus, my father has a history of diabetes and heart disease, and I was heading down that path quickly. I have asthma, and being overweight made it harder to breath when walking or running.
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 had was the fear of failing. I had tried every gimmick out there, and didn’t want to get sucked into another one. I felt like no matter what I did nothing worked. Beachbody helped me see the light with their inspirational videos of people like me who made no excuses, got it done, and had amazing success. Plus, the company had a money-back guarantee. I figured if they are willing to give me my money back if I wasn’t happy, then this must be the real deal!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
To date, I have lost a total of 85 pounds using Beachbody fitness programs and Shakeology. And I have kept it off! I feel great and look better. I finally got the abs and the tone I have wanted for years! There is nothing better than working out at home at my convenience. I’m proud to have slimmed down and got the body I’ve always wanted. I’ve achieved goals with Beachbody fitness that I never thought possible, and never once stepped into a gym.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has drastically changed. I walk proud now! I’m so much more positive. I always look for the good before the bad now. I use to be embarrassed when I’d go into certain clothing stores. and they would tell me they didn’t have bigger sizes. Now when I go into a store, sometimes they tell me the same thing but it’s because they say I’m too small. Which is awesome! I will always be in debt to Beachbody and their amazing products!!
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 began using Shakeology in conjunction with my workouts. I have always struggled with eating breakfast in the morning and so Shakeology became the solution to the problem. I begin each day with Shakeology, and I know that I am consuming all of the vitamins and minerals that I need. I found that with using Shakeology my cravings for sweets decreased, I was consuming smaller portions at meals times, my energy levels increased, my digestion was more regulated, and I felt like my thought patterns were much clearer.2 I also like how versatile Shakeology can be. At times when I was craving something sweet, I would pull out my Shakeology recipe calendar and try a new shake recipe.
