Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I feel amazing compared to how I felt before starting the Beachbody Challenge! Before I started, I was depressed and had no energy at all. Between working full-time overnight shifts as a nurse and having an eight-month-old baby, I was exhausted all the time. I was ashamed of the way my body looked and ashamed that I hadn’t done anything to change it. I felt unattractive and had no self-confidence at all.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My fiance and I decided that we would get married in Mexico! Every girl dreams of her wedding day, and I wanted to feel beautiful. I knew that would not happen unless I made a change! I wanted to have more energy to play with my beautiful daughter, and I wanted to feel pretty again!! My best friend discovered Shakeology and the Beachbody workouts, and shared it with me. We decided to go on a weight loss journey together!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I have tried dieting and working out many times in the past, but it has never stuck. I would get bored with it or would give up before seeing any results. Working overnights and having a baby makes it hard to get to the gym to work out. With TurboFire I was able to stay home and do it during my daughters nap time, which was perfect!! I saw results so quickly that it pushed me to keep going to see what could happen in 90 days! Also, I am a chocolate addict. The fact that I could have a chocolate shake that really is delicious AND healthy was huge for me. It gives me a treat every single day! I love it!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The first time I did TurboFire, I thought there was NO way I was going to be able to do it. I was so out of shape, and had to pause it every few minutes because I was out of breath. I feel so much healthier now, and can see huge improvements in my endurance. I’ve lost 40 pounds in 90 days and inches everywhere on my body! I cannot believe how significant the changes were in 3 months!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Physically, my body has changed drastically. I’ve lost weight and inches, and toned up all over! There have been a lot of emotional changes during this process as well. I am so much happier now. I know I can do anything if I set my mind to it. I feel attractive again, and have so much more energy to be a better nurse, mom, and soon-to-be wife!
