Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started ChaLEAN Extreme, I would try and avoid any mirrors at all costs. I was very depressed about who I had become and all the weight that I had put on but wasn’t ready to do anything about it. One day I woke up, looked in the mirror and just cried. I couldn’t believe that the person invading the mirror was me! That was the day I decided to make a change.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
For months, I saw posts on Facebook from other coaches and challengers from Beachbody and the changes they had made in their life. I was so jealous! I wanted it for me, but didn’t have the drive or motivation to begin on my journey. My coach, Emily Brougham, is really who inspired me to make a change. I was constantly was seeing all of her posts on Facebook about her transformation and some of her challengers and I decided why not me? All of her posts were so positive and uplifting and that’s what I wanted, to be happy! I commented on one her posts about a challenge group, and I haven’t looked back!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The results I achieved are amazing! I am down from size 9/10 pants all the way to 4s, and I went from wearing large shirts to either a small, or sometimes, even an extra small! The achievement that I am most proud of is my body fat percentage, when I first started I had a whopping 29% body fat, which meant I was considered overweight and unhealthy. But through my journey I was able to go down to 17% body fat!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed dramatically. I am so much happier in my everyday life! I have been able to focus more on myself and being the happiest, healthiest person that I can be! Not only has my body transformed, but my mind has as well. I have a different way of thinking. Now, instead of focusing on all the negatives that happen, I am able to focus more on the positives and enjoy life!
