Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I lost my dad to cancer in 2012, and after that I spiraled downward. I felt as if I was alone, and I found comfort in food. It’s as if I woke up one morning and saw myself as this completely different person! 300 Pounds of “what the heck is that.” I was ashamed and my body image was, well, it wasn’t much of anything at that point. From food I turned to partying and alcohol, and I realized that, too, wasn’t where I was supposed to be.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My boyfriend and I were the contributing factors to my transformation. I met my boyfriend in December of 2013, and by then I had already lost about 15 pounds and was starting to see life in a new light. We were talking one night about health and fitness and the things that made him start his health journey and I told him that I wasn’t happy with myself and that I wanted to change things around. He told me that he saw strength in me and he would be by my side throughout my journey. We saw an infomercial about Focus T25, and I told him that was what I wanted to do, now was the time, and I was tired of being the “Funny Fat Girl.’ So we ordered it, and 1 week later, the package arrived that changed my life.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
It was fast paced, and once I had dropped a few pounds and could keep up. It was fun and challenging.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have changed my lifestyle to better eating habits, I have lost 137 lbs., I am happier and healthier, and I found motivation and determination. The achievements that I am most proud of are my weight loss and my motivation. I can now look at myself in the mirror with only minor negativity. I still have a few areas that I want to tone, and I’m working on my abs. Im proud of my motivation, because I have not only motivated myself, but I have also motivated those in my community. People have seen my transformation, and they want to know exactly what I did.
