Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Starting with my first pregnancy, I ate whatever I wanted and didn’t work out. I gained nearly 65 pounds and kept it on through my second pregnancy. After my second child was born, I just kept eating like I was pregnant. Also, being a working mom, I thought I didn’t have time to exercise. My weight was out of control, and I was consistently exhausted.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was six months postpartum with my second child, and I knew I had to make some major changes in order to be healthy for my family and happy with myself.4
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
With being a full-time working mom with two kids and a husband working 90-hour weeks, pushing through workouts was rough at times. But the short workouts in the convenience of my own home or right after a workday in the gym at the school I work at made it doable. I achieved a fitness level I have never had before, not even in high school.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I never felt hungry, and there were delicious recipes. The workouts were quick and to the point.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I went from a size 12 to a size 0, and lost over 50 pounds. I have boundless energy now as well.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Most of all, I have so much more energy in my job as a speech language pathologist working in special needs preschool, as well as in my number one job as a mother to my amazing 4-year-old and 19-month-old. I feel 100 percent comfortable in my own skin… and in a bikini!
