Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt sluggish, tired, and had low self-esteem. I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin and was tired of having clothes that didn’t fit correctly.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
On top of not liking the way I looked on the outside, I felt like I was too tired to play with my kids. I wanted to be fun again and be able to keep up with them.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
It was hard to get started because I was very unfit physically. However, the Country Heat workout was so much fun, so it motivated me to keep going. It didn’t feel like exercise, and I could gradually go from the modified moves to the more advanced ones.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was fun and easy to follow. Also, I didn’t have to memorize crazy step patterns. I liked how we would do two different moves, put them together, and then move onto other ones. I could focus on doing the moves right to get the best workout rather than worry about what I’m supposed to do next.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 30 lbs. and went from a size 14 jeans to a size 4. I am proud of the fact that I finally lost the baby weight and then some.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am more confident and willing to encourage others to do the same. Since I am also a registered nurse, I feel like patients could not take an obese nurse seriously when I would tell them about eating healthy, exercising, and living a healthy lifestyle. Now that I am practicing what I preach, I feel that I can better motivate patients and others around me by setting an example.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She served as an inspiration to me for my own weight loss. She modeled a healthy lifestyle and made me feel like I could do it too.
