†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 have been overweight my entire life and would eat like a pig. I was aware of how bad it was getting but I kept indulging. I hated the way I looked and was extremely self-conscious of how I looked. I never let anyone see me without a shirt.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I just told myself enough was enough. The peak of my weight was 285 and I could not let myself get to 300. I thought about the long-term effects on my health and everyday life so I finally had to do something to prevent the worst and from my life becoming miserable. I also wanted to feel good about how I looked and not be afraid to go to the beach or swim in public.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
It was getting into the habits of working out and watching what I eat, such as making healthier choices and counting calories. The diet is still a constant obstacle I face but it has gotten significantly easier. The programs I have done, which are P90X, INSANITY, T25, and now P90X3, have and are helping me reach my goals by having awesome Coaches such as Shaun T and Tony Horton always motivating me and making me actually look forward to most of the workouts, and knowing there is a community of people with the same goal and the support they give!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked that it was 30 minutes since I am usually very busy with school and work. I also liked that Tony Horton was very motivating and pushed me when I felt like stopping completely. I kept telling myself it was only 30 minutes. 30 minutes a day for an awesome body in the long run and a step closer to my ultimate goal.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost a total of 98 pounds with all the programs I have done so far. I lost 16 pounds with T25 and now 18 pounds with P90X3. I am proud of the fact I have lost so much weight and that I am getting more fit and healthier. It’s such a great feeling!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I get more compliments on how I look and I find it easier to walk and run without getting tired so quickly. I feel healthier and more clean than I ever have before and knowing I’m done is great because I expect to feel even greater in the end.
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (such as Shakeology or Beachbody Ultimate Reset) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
I feel better knowing I have Shakeology for breakfast every single day. I feel it’s a great and healthy way to start the day!
