Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was 205 lbs when I started my journey. I had to order a size 18 dress for my daughter, Melissa’s wedding. This was very degrading to me. Although my cholesterol levels were good, my doctor told me I had to at least lose 70lbs. I was sluggish, and had no energy. I couldn’t climb the stairs of my apartment to reach my bedroom without my heart feeling like it was pounding out of my chest. So in March of 2013, I decided to only eat whole foods and cut out the junk. I saw the infomercial on the FOCUS T25 program, but I couldn’t afford it so I started to search garage sales for anything that may have Shaun T in it, and bought Rockin’ Body for only $5.00. A friend loaned me her Hip Hop Abs as well. I lost 30 lbs. Then I got contacted by Tony Edwards (Beachbody Coach) in Jan to join a group called TD Nation (Ran by Lance Lyell). I lost 23.4lbs and 27in. in my first 90 days. In March 2014, I got the FOCUS T25 program. I finished my weight loss goal to 120lbs. In December I got the INSANITY MAX:30 program to tone.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was beginning and staying on track with my commitment. The way the Beachbody program helped me was that I could do this program in the comfort of my own home and not be viewed or be on display at a gym. Also, the encouragement I got in the TD Nation group and from all the Beachbody Coaches!

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost a grand total of 82lbs to date, and I look amazing in my swim suit and 501 jeans! The best thing out of all of this is that I have my health back. Not only can I climb/run up those stairs of my apartment, but I also just ran a half marathon on August 31st and did quite well for a 52 year old woman!
