Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started Beachbody, I was pushing 300 pounds! I felt depressed and disgusting! I ate out a lot, especially fast food most of the time. Chips, cookies, anything junk food-related, and soda (Mountain Dew mostly) were my best friends! I didn’t care if I left the house. I could have stayed in bed and never moved! It was just awful the way that I felt and the pain that I was constantly in. I suffer from chronic fatigue, polycystic ovary syndrome, and fibromyalgia. I am happy to say that I now have a lot more energy throughout the day and to be able to push through my workouts! I had been in a toxic marriage that resulted in me shutting down. Like I said before, I had no interest in going anywhere; I didn’t care how I looked; I ate whatever I wanted; and spent most of my time sleeping. I met an amazing guy five years ago who has made a positive impact on my life and I couldn’t be more happy.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My biggest inspiration would have to be my family. I have a five-year-old little boy with special needs who is my world, and I would be devastated if I was not able to watch him grow up, or be there for him at all because I chose to not leave my couch and junk food behind! I also did this because I knew I had to make a serious change before it was too late! I had been watching a friend on her journey and one day she messaged me, but I was not quite ready to commit so I said not right now. But one day I saw her transformation pics and it hit me! I had to do this, so I messaged her for help! She helped get me started, and I fell in love with Beachbody and became a Coach!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge was overcoming the urge to indulge in food! It really was not as hard as I thought it was going to be, because once I put my mind to it, there was no stopping me! I had a hard time telling myself every day that I needed to work out and get it done, but I knew why I was doing it and why I needed to get it done! I looked at my son, who watched me every day and was my biggest cheerleader, telling me throughout the workout that I was doing great and to keep going. He is the reason I pushed through. I knew I had to do it not only for myself but for him!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
When I started my journey, I did Rockin’ Body and enjoyed the fact I was dancing and not really working out. I lost 20 pounds with that program and that’s when I realized I could do this. I have done various programs throughout the last year and a half, including 21 Day Fix. Recently, I just finished INSANITY MAX:30 and loved the challenge it brought me. I never thought I could do anything that intense. But when I pushed myself to the finish and completed the program, I was so proud of myself!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I started my journey on April 21, 2014, at 295 pounds. I have since then lost a total of 72 pounds and gone down five pants sizes, from a size 24 to a size 14. I am beyond words excited and proud of myself and all that I have accomplished. I still have a long way to go but with the help of Beachbody and Shakeology, I know I will reach my goal soon!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has completely changed since I started the Beachbody program! I feel healthier all around. I have more confidence in myself. I no longer hide from the camera, and love shopping for new clothes! I wake up every morning ready to face the day. I’m not depressed anymore. I am able to play with my son, and not get tired out and have to sit down. I love that I do not eat nearly as much food as I used to. I have cut out all junk food minus a snack here and there, but definitely not like it used to be! I feel like a whole new person, and I cannot wait to continue my transformation! I can’t believe how Beachbody has changed my life, and I have a hard time putting into words how thankful I am for what I have been able to do with the help of these programs! Thank you!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
By participating in a Challenge Group, I found myself being accountable every day. I checked in daily with workout pics, food pics, and was there for others in the group. I love the groups as we are all there to help one another along the way, which helps keep us going. Also, by watching everyone else get results, it helps to push us to get the same results!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach has been there for me every step of the way! She is always there encouraging me to keep going and to never give up! She is the reason I am here today, because I saw her posts and she totally inspired me. I said to myself that I wanted to get those results! She is absolutely amazing and is always there for her team! If it had not been for her being there for me through my journey, I don’t think I would have kept going and I would have given up! She seriously is amazing!
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 is by far the most amazing nutritional supplement I have ever had! It has helped me in so many ways, including giving me more energy to get through my day. It has helped me with my stomach issues, and has kept me regular.+
