Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Like many people, I had a very busy life. I have a family, a job, and I was a full time student. Being healthy was definitely not one of my priorities. I ate whatever I could and whenever I could. Every time I would get out of the shower and look in the mirror, I was disappointed at myself. I would tell myself almost everyday that something needed to be done. Today became tomorrow, tomorrow became next week, and next week became next month. I knew what I needed to do but it just seemed so hard.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One night while I was trying to fall asleep, I saw the P90X infomercial. The results people were getting by following the program were amazing. But being an educated consumer, I had to do further research. As I researched further, I saw that these were real people with real results. I took inspiration from every transformation I saw. Some didn’t have time to go to the gym, some had families and some were going to college. I realized that in order to live a healthy and fit lifestyle I had to get rid of the all the excuses that were holding me down. My family has also had a history of diabetes and heart problems. I knew if I didn’t change it would not be long before that history catches up with me. I wanted to see my kids grow and I wanted to live long enough to see them succeed. I needed to change.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?*
Nutrition and flexibility were my biggest hurdles. I thought that following a fitness program was all I needed to do live a healthy life style. Then I stumbled upon my Coach’s website. He explained everything with great detail. He answered every question I had and believe me, I had many. He also introduced me to Shakeology and what a game changer that was. It helped me break a weight loss plateau and simplified my nutrition. I lost about 17 pounds doing one round of P90X. Believe it or not Yoga was my favorite workout. Then I joined a Challenge Group for P90X3. It was amazing to see so many people working together, pushing each other to be accountable, motivating, inspiring and supporting when someone fell off the wagon. I lost another 15 pounds with P90X3. Lost another 8 pounds during a second round of P90X3. Life is all about testing your limits and Beachbody has definitely given me a chance to do that.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 40 pounds doing one round of P90X and two rounds of P90X3. I have never been this lean in my life. My flexibility and stamina is just off the charts. I have gone from zero unassisted pull-ups to 10. I went from 10 push-ups to 45. My energy levels are at an all-time high and I am more confident than ever.
