Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?

I have always tried to workout. I would make it to the gym 2 to 3 times a week if I didn’t give myself an excuse not to go. I had 2 kids so it was easy for me not focus on exercise. Then I got pregnant with twins! After I had them life really changed for me. I was over weight and tired all of them time. Eating junk food and taking a nap sounded a lot better than working out! That was my excuse. But I hated my body. I hated the way I looked in my fat clothes.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?

My husband inspired me to change my life style. He had gained his pregnancy pounds too, and was ready to make a life style change with me. We decided to do T25 because we both don’t have a lot of time in the day to work out. We held each other accountable. We saw results together. I told him I don’t want people to look at me and say, she looks good for having twins. I want people to say, oh wow she had twins! Now I can say that I am in the best shape of my life but will not stop trying to improve my health.

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 I had before beginning the program. was sticking with it. To follow the program is tough. I would get through a week or two and then have an excuse as to why I didn’t need to work out that day or week. Finally with great determination and Shaun T motivating me through each day I finally followed the program and have seen great results. I won’t stop, can’t stop. No excuses! Thanks Beachbody, you have changed my life!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?

The time frame worked best for me a mom of 4 young children.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am proud to say that I can do push ups. Not girl push ups but real guy push ups! I am strong and love it!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?

Now I think about how to make healthy choices with food and what workout video I am doing tomorrow. I did a mud run recently with my husband and did great! I can safely say that fat Amy would have never though of ever doing that or that something like that would have been fun, but I had a blast!!
