†Results vary depending on starting point and effort. Judith is an independent Beachbody Coach.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting T25, PiYo, and Shakeology, I felt fat, ugly, and uncomfortable in my skin. I felt like I couldn’t run or play with my kids, so I didn’t! I was the observer Mom; who usually was snacking on a Snickers, and drinking a Dr. Pepper. The day I couldn’t bend over to tie my shoes was the day I knew this had to change!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My children inspire me! My children asked me to go outside with them to play, and 95% of the time I’d say, “No.” I realized that is why I was so overweight. I had no drive! As I watched my blue eyed baby’s faces go from happy to sad, I realized…I was done!
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 was conquering my love of “unhealthy” food! Beachbody helped me conquer this challenge by supplying an awesome product called Shakeology. I am a huge lover of chocolate!!! With chocolate Shakeology, it curves those cravings and I can actually say “no!”
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I did T25 for my first round and loved how it whipped me back into shape, but the second round I chose PiYo! PiYo is an amazing program that was easy on my injured right knee. Unlike T25’s high impact, Piyo’s workouts were low impact with high intensity to the muscles. My body was sore in all the right places, instead of in my joints!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have the achievement of losing 51 lbs, but greater than that, I am able to inspire others to help “end the trend.” I became a Beachbody Coach at the beginning of PiYo, and have already helped others start their journey to fighting obesity and living a healthier, longer life!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed greatly! I can go buy new clothes without praying they’d have a size 14. I’ve seen an excitement in my husband’s eyes to start his own healthy journey! Our longevity on the Earth is important to me, to my children, and to my work for God! When I die, I do not want people to say,”It was her fault. She should’ve taken better care of herself”, but to know they’ll say, “Well done! She was a good, and faithful, child of the Lord!”
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The group I participated in was hosted by my coach and myself. We named it “PiYo U.” In the beginning, we had six ladies actively working out to PiYo and drinking their Shakeology. These ladies kept me accountable every day. We swapped recipes, posted pics of our progress, and just gave 100% of our efforts to supporting one another through our PiYo journey.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach did an excellent job at keeping me accountable for what I ate, and for posting to my daily Challenge Group. She has helped me become the Coach I am, and will continue inspiring me with her fitness journey. I would not have started without her support.
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?
Shakeology has been the best thing I have introduced to my digestive system. It has helped me have regular, solid bowel movements on a daily basis. I drink Shakeology every morning for my breakfast, right after completing my daily workout with PiYo. It gives me the energy I need to complete my day of being a wife and mother. In the past, I found myself taking naps in the afternoon due to exhaustion, and now, I make it all the way to 10 pm!2
