Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My daughter had just turned three and I realized that I was still a size 12 and I hadn’t lost my “baby weight”. I was looking at pictures of myself from her birthday party and I was not happy. I constantly wore baggy clothes to hide my fat rolls. I would workout like crazy and not lose any weight, and I couldn’t figure out what I was doing wrong. I felt frumpy.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was inspired by a few friends of mine that did yoga. I was amazed at how their bodies moved in certain poses, and I wanted to be them. I wanted to wear fancy leggings and look good in a tank top. The support on Instagram was overwhelming about being comfortable in your own body which made me realize that I was comfortable in my own body. I met someone on there that introduced me to Shakeology and wellness coaching, and it all took off from there.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The program that I used to lose the weight was Hammer and Chisel. It was definitely hard to keep up. I had to make a lot of modifications but I never gave up. I didn’t use the bench, but I was able to add weights in eventually. That along with the PiYo DVD for stretching made an enormous difference in my endurance and flexibility. Not to mention the fact that I lost 27 pounds, it made it easier to move. Now I can do handstands, arm balances, inversions, and I feel light as a feather. I’m healthier from the meal plans and stronger than I ever was when I used to work out at the gym. I feel like Shakeology and Beachbody literally saved my life!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love all of the programs to be honest. I just started the 21 Day Fix and it’s equally amazing. I love how excited the trainers are in the videos that they make me smile and giggle while working out. They make it fun! I don’t feel alone like I did on the treadmill everyday.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m so proud that I have achieved diamond status and that so many people have entrusted me with their health and fitness journey. I feel excited to help people everyday. I feel great and energized everyday just from drinking the shakes.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have become a successful Coach for Beachbody and recently earned diamond status. Everyone has been so impressed with my achievements and my results that they are ready for my help. And I am so happy to be able to share my journey with them as well as help them along their own personal journey.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
Jamie has always been very supportive with any of my goals that I am trying to accomplish. She is right there with the answer to any question that I have.
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?
Yes to all of the above, hahaha. I have IBS so I am not able to eat as many salads or raw vegetables as everyone else. So being able to drink the amount of nutrients that is in each shake is amazing. I feel like I have more energy. My coffee intake has gone down to one cup a day. I sleep better at night. I’m an overall happier healthier person. Everyone notices how I smile more..and I seem happy.
