Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I knew I was overweight, but I didn’t realize just how much. I didn’t have much energy. I didn’t feel attractive anymore, and I just thought this was how it was going to be. About 9 years ago, I was diagnosed with Hashimotos disease. It is a thyroid disorder. I kept gaining weight little by little each year and went from 135 to 172 lbs. in a matter of 6 years. I wasn’t eating the greatest and was only exercising every now and then. I could lose a few pounds here and there but it didn’t stay off. I had been getting migraines since I was 9 years old, but since I had gotten bigger and out of shape I was getting 10 – 12 a month and medication didn’t seem to help much. I just was accepting my weight and condition as something I had to live with.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I think I was very tired of being sick and tired. I wanted to be a positive role model for my children and be inspiring for them. My Coach Nicole asked me to give the 21 Day Fix challenge a try, as well to start Shakeology, telling me that it would make a difference for me. I had great success and lost 12 pounds with that, and after two more rounds of 21 Day Fix and PiYo, I have been so successful and have lost a total of 32 pounds. Wow!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I really liked the 21 Day Fix because the DVD videos were very easy to follow and were nice to work into. At first, I couldn’t do some of them. I also loved the containers because they helped me focus on portion control, and eating the foods that I was supposed to be eating. Lots of fruits and veggies! What I really loved about the program was having my Coach and being part of a group to hold me accountable. I loved PiYo! I like how my muscles have showed up for the party, finally!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I achieved more energy, vitality, and joy of living and life again. My weight has gone down and I have lost several inches off of all parts of my body. I look really wonderful and feel great in my body again. My good habits are rubbing off on my kids. My daughter has given up pop and my son is eating more fruit and making better choices. Most importantly I have been only getting 1-2 migraines a month! What a relief. I don’t spend my time worrying about if I am going to have a headache or not any more. I feel really great, I haven’t been sick, and when I do get a migraine, my medication takes it away within hours instead of a whole day wasted in bed. I credit this to the Shakeology and working out on a daily basis. It is my miracle. I also love that my body does not look like a 48 year old. I look like I’m in my 30’s again!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since I have completed the 21 Day Fix, I have still continued the great eating habits. It just seems if I eat bad food I end up feeling bad. I didn’t realize it was so simple. All I had to do was decide to commit and then I succeeded. This will be a lifestyle change for me. For the rest of my life I will be eating this way and have signed up to Coach for Beachbody as well. I want others to feel as wonderful about themselves as I do. Since completing PiYo I have more strength and have started running again and just feel in such amazing shape.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I really liked being in a Challenge Group. It kept me focused and being in a group held me accountable. We checked in each day and gave weekly stats which was just a wonderful thing to do. I really love looking at my before and after pictures and have them hanging up so I can see them every day.
