“I Am Proud of Dropping 100 Pounds from Starting INSANITY and Focus T25!”

Meet Matt G.! He participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for November 27th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before my journey, I would eat fast food at least 5 days a week sometimes more than once in a day. I would try dieting, and I would stick to it for sometimes as long as a month. I would never exercise. I wanted to be in shape so bad, but, as bad as I wanted it, my procrastination towards getting healthy was an equal as strong. I would always tell myself starting Monday I will change, or I’ll just finish what I have then won’t buy anymore. I had no energy. I didn’t like how I looked, and it made my life quite depressing to the point that all I ever did was work then come home and watch TV.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I just woke up one day and decided that I was done living and feeling that way. I was going through a divorce, and decided the only way to take my mind off of it was to focus that energy somewhere else. I committed to the meal plan and tried to stay as on track with the workouts as I possibly could. Eventually I found myself wanting to get home not to watch TV or sleep, but to workout. That then got me to going to the park with the dog or alone to run quite frequently. I was just happy being out in public meeting people enjoying my city that I hadn’t explored in so long!

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge was getting motivated to start, and, furthermore, find a way to hold my attention. From the very first warm-up in INSANITY I knew this workout was legit and wasn’t some stupid “as seen on tv” item. The amount of sweat pouring off me after my first workout had me hooked.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost a ton of weight, a bunch of inches, and I got all the energy in the world! I am proud of dropping 100 pounds from starting INSANITY and through Focus T25! I am getting more fit, and I am starting to see great definition! Looking in the mirror is a motivator now and not a discourager!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My confidence is through the roof, my energy is off the charts, I look good, eat great, and I get looks of envy instead of laughter when I go out. I’m now an inspirational story not a “how did that happen” story. People look to me for advice and ask me how I did this and it feel really great to help other people acheive what I acheive instead of wondering what other people have done!
