Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started Focus T25, I was completely miserable. I was very depressed and struggling with anxiety. I was just trying to survive the day. I wasn’t sleeping, and every diet I had tried wasn’t working. I felt like I was drowning in my own body.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One day, I was rocking my son to sleep, and the phone rang. I jumped up to answer the phone (carrying my son in my arms). All of a sudden I felt a flopping sensation in my chest. It scared me to death. We went to the hospital, and they determined it was an anxiety attack. But, it was enough to scare me. I decided that I had to do something immediately!!
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 was time. Being a full-time mom, running a daycare out of my home, and working a part-time job, there just wasn’t much time left in my day. That is why I chose Focus T25. I could make that work. Every morning I would tell myself, “Come on girl, you can do this. It’s only 25 minutes!”
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
So far I have lost 41 pounds! I have dropped 3 pant sizes. I went from wearing an extra large shirt to a medium. I can see muscles for the first time since high school! I am not afraid of doing push ups, burpees, or pike ups anymore. I know my body is strong and healthy!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life now is completely different! I am able to deal with life’s stresses so much better. I have a ton of energy, and sleep like a rock!
