Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
As a young mother of two, I had always used the excuse of lack of time when it came to my body. I am a restaurant general manager, and my eating habits would yo-yo week to week. I was tired from the time I got out of bed until I went back to bed. I had just accepted that I would never get my body back.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My Beachbody Coach Jolie has approached me many times, and I always had an excuse. However, a routine visit to my doctor changed my life forever. I weighed 160 pounds, had high cholesterol, high triglycerides, and was pre-diabetic. Are you kidding me?! At 27 years old!? That’s when I decided to take control and join Beachbody! In just the first week, I could feel my energy levels rising, and by following the 21 Day Fix eating plan I was never hungry! Workouts were only 30 minutes! Even I have time for that!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
Being a restaurant manager means you work long hours on your feet all day any day. Creating a workout schedule and eating plan was the biggest obstacle to overcome. The 21 Day Fix containers made eating simple to plan and pack for long days at work.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that the workouts were different every day! It was also great having the modified position shown to help me get started. The Ultimate Reset helped me get my life back.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
In 2 rounds, I have lost 15 pounds and dropped a jean size. I have so much more energy thanks to Shakeology. I didn’t realize how bad I really felt until I started to feel this good! I lost 8 pounds with Ultimate Reset!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Now so many people see by my results that anything is possible. So many people come to me for advice on health and fitness. Helping others in the fight against fat and obesity is the most fulfilling thing I’ve done. I also now talk about health and fitness with my children, who often take part in my workouts! My husband even drinks his Shakeology everyday!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
It was reassuring to see that others were going through the same struggles as I was. Not only that but on hard days they gave me the motivation to get off the couch and get the job done!
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?
I really don’t think my results could have been achieved without Shakeology. I now wake up every morning at 5:30 AM to do my workouts! If you had told me that 42 days ago, I would have said you are crazy. But Shakeology gave me my life back! The Ultimate Reset has made me feel 10 years younger!
