†Results vary depending on starting point and effort.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was always over 200 lbs throughout my entire high school years. 2 years after high school, I had my son and afterwards, weighed in at 220 lbs. I never had any self-confidence about my body at all. I hated my body. But now, thanks to Beachbody, I can look in the mirror and be proud of my body, and how far I’ve come.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My family always expressed their concerns about my obesity, but it wasn’t until I had my son, that I really wanted to change. I wanted to be able to keep up with him and be healthy, so I could enjoy all the time I could with him.
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 having the motivation to do a workout. Every workout was hard for me being the weight I was, so it was a struggle sticking with anything. Now I’ve gotten to be a healthy weight. Beachbody programs are fun, and the music is great! I no longer have to force myself to do a workout now.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was fast, fun, and great music. I loved kicking and punching. It was a good release!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’ve lost a total of 80 lbs since starting my journey 2 years ago, and in that time I’ve completed two rounds of INSANITY and one of other Beachbody programs. My most proud achievement is being able to do over 10 real push-ups in a row; I’ve never been able to do one. Sticking with it is one of the hardest things to do, so I’m also proud of kicking myself in the butt!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I now walk to and from work every day. I complete one workout a day and am very active with my 3-year-old son. I have lots of energy and am proud to look myself in the mirror. I can’t remember a time when I could say I was proud of my body…until now.
