Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I had no energy. I was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 13. I was concerned about having high blood pressure and cholesterol. I loved all kinds of food. I was always out of breath in gym class and was always picked last. I was depressed and crying because people would laugh and pick on me, so I would binge eat for no reason. I had to wear over-sized shirts and super baggy pants.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When the doctor told me I was diabetic at 13. I had known diabetes ran in my family and my grandmother had just died from it. A friend was doing P90X and I tried it and lost 5 pounds,but I wasn’t following the nutrition guide. Then I gained the weight back because I didn’t know what to do next. I later purchased T25, followed the workouts and nutrition guide as well, and lost 10 pounds and gained tons of energy and confidence.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Staying motivated. What kept me motivated was continuing to tell myself my why. Which was to set the example for myself and my friends and family. Also to prove that you don’t have to be overweight just because everyone else is. I played baseball in high school and was always the slowest. Now, I am the fastest on the team thanks to Beachbody and T25!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I got leaner and more toned, and I got the six pack I had dreamed and prayed about! Im proud of my commitment and my abs.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy and do cool things like handstands, and muscle ups. Now, I have gotten my parents and other family members doing T25, as well. I can now help end the trend of obesity in America. I also now make more healthier eating choices wherever I go!
