Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After having two kids and one C-Section, I never thought I would never be able to get to where I am. No matter what I did or what diet I decided to try, nothing worked. After trying so many things, I just decided to give up and try to accept me for what I was. I always felt tired and didn’t really want to do anything. I would eat bad foods even when I knew they weren’t good for me and rarely exercised. I hated going shopping for clothes because everything I wanted to wear didn’t fit or didn’t look good on me.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?*
I was having hard time figuring out what to wear. I felt like nothing I had fit right. I didn’t even like to look in the mirror. I was even having a hard time keeping up with my children. I would sit there at the park and watch them play by themselves when I should have been out their playing with them. I also saw others around me including my Beachbody Coach getting huge results. After seeing others change around me, I wanted to give it a try. I thought if others can do it, I can too.
What is the greatest challenge you faced?
As a single mom of two kids and doing everything on my own including having a full-time job, going to school full-time, and taking my kids to after school activities, I felt like I never had any time to work out. But I took the challenge and believed in myself. Even if I didn’t have time in the morning to do the workout, I came straight home and did it every night before dinner.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
Both FOCUS T25 and 21 Day Fix worked every aspect of my body and didn’t take a lot of time. It was nice knowing that the workouts weren’t very long and when either Shaun T. or Autumn said you got this, don’t give up, I would get pumped up again and I would put in everything I got because I wanted results.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I went from size 13 to a size 4. I feel the healthiest now than I have since I was in my early twenties. I have abs that are noticeable, my arms are strong, and I am able to wear the clothes that I want to. My endurance and strength is off the chart and I just love my new muscles.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach is the main reason why I have made it to where I am. She was always there for me. She took time every day to check on me, encourage me, help, lift me up, and make sure that I am doing what I am supposed to. She even would take time out of her day to come over and help me with meal planning.
