Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have always been overweight. I have never been happy with myself. After having my third child, I had a huge wake-up call. I was the heaviest I have ever been. I was 242 pounds. Honestly, I was extremely miserable. I was crying myself to sleep sometimes, because I was miserable with how I looked and how I felt. This was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I needed to be healthy — not just for me, but for my kids as well. I did 21 Day Fix when I started my journey as a Beachbody Coach, then moved on to T25. When all the hype came up with PiYo, I knew I could not pass it by. After PiYo, I had gained so much strength and flexibility, I felt I was ready for INSANITY. Pushing play every day and giving it my all helped me realize how much I really love Shaun T (haha)! Now, I have completed my second round of 21 Day Fix EXTREME. 🙂 I have also done BOD workouts, and just can’t get enough.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My friend from school approached me on Facebook about her free Challenge Group. She became my Coach. I can honestly say Emily Looney changed my life! Her Challenge Groups helped me stay on track with eating healthy and exercising. I went from 242 to 197.8, and needed more help. I hit a plateau. This is when I decided to become a Team Beachbody Coach myself. If it were not for her introducing me to Beachbody, I would probably still be the miserable person I was before I started, because I never knew how to keep going. I always just gave up when things got tough. Since starting my journey, all together I am down 90.7 pounds.
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 faced before beginning this program was realizing I am who I am. I still have a hard time realizing this is me, and letting the scale control how I feel about myself. I now look at it like this: the scale will not define me. What defines me is what I do on a daily basis to continue to transform my health and love for fitness! 🙂
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The workouts were fun, short, and helped me build upper strength.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My results: I am freaking floored. Now that I am not at my heaviest, I am not losing as quickly, but these results from my last round of 21 Day Fix EXTREME blew me out of the water. Not only am I proud of this, but I am proud at the fact that I did not have to follow a modifier after long. My “mom gut” is transforming into not such a “mom gut” anymore. My abs are starting to define, and this just keeps me smiling!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I can keep up with my kids more. I can run around with them out in the yard, and not feel like I am going to die! I sleep better. I do not look in the mirror and well up with tears. I am so happy with my transformation thus far, and I cannot wait to see where I go from here! I have lost a total of 90.7 pounds since the start of my journey! 90.7! That is quite a bit more than the weight of my nine-year-old daughter! I have lost over a half of a person! I am doing it, and most importantly, I am not giving up! Thank you, Beachbody, for changing my life! My blood pressure and cholesterol levels were becoming a source of such concern that my doctor was considering putting me on medication for both. I asked her to give me the chance to fix this on my own first through regular exercise and proper nutrition…and I did!† No meds for this lady!* All my blood results just came back normal! That is an extremely amazing feeling!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The motivation from my Coach and other members definitely keeps me going. I feel like I have to do my best — not just for myself but for my challengers in my groups as well as other members in my Coach’s groups. 🙂
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She helped me become a Coach myself. She has been there 100 percent. She answers any questions I ever have, and gives me so much support. If I ever need her, I do not have to think if she is going to be there for me or not. She will, and that is what being a Team Beachbody Coach is all about!
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. Yum! I love the taste of it, and love that I am not craving junk food anymore. I have increased energy, and my digestive system is finally regular! This was a big bonus for me. I also have been using Energize, and this has helped me big time with getting more energy to get through my workout.+ 🙂
