Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started my programs, I was overweight, always getting fatigued, and had no energy to play with my kids. I was there with my kids, but I was not getting involved with them. I had times where I just hid from both them and my husband and sat in a room and cried because I was so depressed about how I looked. I would go out with my husband on dates, but I would feel embarrassed about how I looked, and I would not be into the moment because I was worried about how I looked. My husband and my kids would always say that I was pretty, but I would just dismiss them because I felt so badly about how I looked. I used to be a collegiate athlete, but since graduating my work out schedule changed a lot!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
The inspiration for my journey has been my family. I want to be around and have the energy to play with them and actually be in the moment with them. I also wanted to teach them how to live healthy. I used to be an athlete, and I looked at how far from that I have come, and I knew that I wanted to set a different example for my children then that. I also have two girls and I want to teach them to be healthy and love how they look so they do not grow up with the self-esteem problems that I did.
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 that I had faced before the program was feeling good about myself. I would get depressed about how I looked and felt. I would close myself off from my family because of this. The Beachbody Challenge has helped me get through this by making me healthier and boosting my confidence about myself and what I can accomplish. I now feel great to go out with my husband on a date and feel like I am the wife that he deserves to be with!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I’ve done INSANITY three times, Focus T25 once, and 21 Day Fix once. I like how INSANITY pushes you and what you can do. No matter how many times you do it, you can always push yourself harder. You can either jump higher, have better form, or not take as many breaks.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m ecstatic that I have lost 48 pounds since getting started with Beachbody! I have gone from a size 20 down to a size 12! I have not been a size 12 since I was in high school. I have more energy and feel great about myself now!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has gotten better in many ways. I have not been depressed, I enjoy playing with my kids more, and I feel more energized! Thank You Team Beachbody for my life back!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Helped me be accountable, and do the workouts each week and gave me motivation.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
By keeping me on track, and helping me when I was having difficulty or going through a tough time.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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?
Shakeology has helped me feel fuller longer, and I no longer have cravings for chips, and sweets like I used to! I love it! The greatest benefit from Shakeology was that I now eat a breakfast and start my day out with a healthy shake! The benefits that I saw were I had more will power through the day, extra energy, and was able to make better food choices when drinking it because it took away the cravings for the junk!2
