Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
My closet held mostly XL and XXL clothing. I would get upset when I looked in a mirror or when my clothes would get tighter. For the last 2-6 years, I would go on a diet and would lose 10-20 pounds. I was happy for a while, but then the old habits would return and the weight I had lost would return again. I must have lost the same amount of weight at least 6 or 8 times during those years!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was often out of breath, my cholesterol was too high, and I had to take meds. My son, Colin Thomas, asked me if I wanted to do something about my situation. He had become a Team Beachbody Coach, and was looking for people to coach. Of course, I told him I would help. We began to discuss how to do my transformation. With his help, I was sure I would be successful this time.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The challenge for me was to do P90X3 after having completed Power 90 much earlier. I was excited, but also very apprehensive. I followed the routines with the help of the team on the DVD. I contacted my Coach, Colin, every time things were hard, but it became easier as my stamina increased. My Coach and the other people on teambeachbody.com helped me to see that struggles could be overcome and success achieved.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The team on the DVD were so helpful with their descriptions of the different moves. The team also made it easy to learn to do the moves that I felt so very successful with this program.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My results were just awesome. I built muscle in my arms, legs, chest and back. I feel so good about the way I look. My waist is awesome, and my legs look wonderful!! I was so surprised that I was able to do the moves on the DVD.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I think the biggest change is the confidence in myself. I was able to workout for 30 to 45 minutes and not pass out. I was able to do things in those workouts that I thought I could not do when beginning the programs. My foods are healthy, and my cholesterol is under control. Another change is in my closet. My clothes have gotten way too big. I haven been able to purchase new clothing, and have given away clothing too big! My friends give me compliments too! I feel just AWESOME!!
