Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started using Beachbody programs, I just wanted to eat my emotions away. I was depressed for a very long time mainly due to the fact that I kept gaining weight and feeling worse about myself. Because I was depressed, I started to eat horribly and live a completely unhealthy lifestyle. I would just live day to day and not think about the consequences of my actions. This caused me to balloon up to 277 pounds.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One day, while I was sitting down watching tv, my chest started to hurt, and I had a little trouble breathing. I couldn’t take a deep breath at all. It was a very hard thing for me to deal with. I had spent months feeling sorry for myself, and was sick of it. I decided to try out INSANITY. I didn’t quit. I kept pressing play every day, and I noticed by my second week I could breathe easier and last longer. Ever since then, I have been doing Beachbody programs back to back. It was the best decision of my life.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge was my breathing. I was a heavy smoker, and I couldn’t walk up 3 steps without losing my breath and wheezing. I was 20 years old and supposed to be in my prime. I couldn’t even breath properly. Once I started INSANITY, I noticed week by week that my lungs were improving and I could last longer with my cardio. Now, I run 5ks on the treadmill every other day.1
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My greatest achievement is that I’ve lost 100 pounds in 8 months. During my first round of INSANITY, I lost 30 pounds. Then, I repeated INSANITY again to lose ANOTHER 30 pounds. After 2 rounds of INSANITY, I decided to try The Asylum, and lost 20 pounds in 1 month. I wanted to keep going and try different programs. So, I decided to complete a round of P90X3, and I lost another 20 pounds. These programs are the best things I ever decided to do.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Ever since I started my weight loss journey, I have been helping numerous friends with losing weight. I have gotten a few of my friends to start doing Beachbody programs, and I even join them for a few workouts. People come to me for advice about nutrition and exercise. I absolutely love helping other people meet their goals. I’m overall a happier person, and I try to motivate others.
