Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have been overweight my entire life. I was born with tibial torsion, a bone deformity in my legs. From an early age, I was limited on the type of activity I could do because I was in so much pain.* I was exempt from gym in school growing up. I became lazy and accepted the fact that I would always be overweight. I didn’t believe in myself. I overate all the time. I would eat lots of sweets, processed foods, chips, and fast foods. I reached my heaviest of 287 pounds and XXXL shirts.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I went to Disneyland on Christmas vacation with my family in 2013. I was scared and nervous I was going to ruin the trip for my family, because of my weight and inability to sustain any exercise, more or less walk around all day long and keep up with my kids. To my surprise, I wasn’t in any pain. My body was able to walk the amusement park with no physical ailments. Although physically I did well, I struggled mentally. Part of me was sad. I saw other mothers riding rides with their kids, and I was unable to because of my size. After we came home, I realized it wasn’t just a physical battle, it was a mental battle as well. The following week I was invited to work out to T25 at a friend’s house and to my surprise, Shaun T had modifications that I was able to do. I successfully completed the workout by following those modifications.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was to stop listening to that voice in my head that told me I couldn’t! I always doubted what my overweight body could do. With the help of Beachbody programs like ChaLEAN Extreme, PiYo, 21 Day Fix, T25, Body Beast, and 21 Day Fix EXTREME, I know my body can do amazing things no matter what my weight and fitness level!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
From the workouts to the portion control, I love how easy 21 Day Fix EXTREME is to follow.


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am most proud of proving to myself that I can achieve anything I set my mind to!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I believe in myself now. I am a better mother to my three boys. I feel stronger. I am a happier person all around. I completed my very first 5K walk/run. I have a newfound love for life and want to inspire others to believe in themselves. So last October I became a Beachbody Coach to pay it forward and to help others in their fitness journeys. I have always enjoyed helping others, and now I want to be able to help people change their lives.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Being in a Challenge Group helped me stay on track and motivated me to push myself out of my comfort zone to achieve better results.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach saved my life! If it wasn’t for her, I would have given up already. She has been so supportive in helping me stay on track with my goals and always gives me tips on how to improve to meet those goals. I was invited to work out with Brenda, and at first, I was very hesitant. I was tired of being in pain. After two weeks, I knew that I had to start somewhere. I took Brenda up on her invitation and began working out to T25. I loved Shaun T’s motivation and encouraging words. We finished the program and went on to 21 Day Fix, ChaLEAN Extreme, PiYo, and Body Beast, which is when I fell in love with lifting weights.

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?
Shakeology helps me reduce my calorie intake and curbs my sugar cravings.
