Results vary depending on starting point and effort.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After my second son, I reached my highest weight of 244 pounds. I would start eating healthy, lose a few pounds, “reward” myself, gain it all back, and start the process over again. It was a back and forth battle that I kept losing. I was so unhappy with myself. I would refuse to be in pictures, or even buy clothes, because I didn’t want to see what size I was. It had gotten to a point where I just figured that I would be overweight forever.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
After having my second son, I decided enough was enough.4 I wanted to be a healthy and active mom for them. I was sick and tired of being stuck in this body, and I was ready for change.
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 getting the mentality that I actually could do it! I was constantly making excuses for myself. “I’ll just have one bite”, “I’ve already ruined my eating for today”, “I don’t have enough time”, ect. ect. This program helped me overcome this challenge because it’s only 25 minutes! Being a mom of 2 is busy, but I can always fit a 25 minute workout into my schedule!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
FOCUS T25 is my favorite workout I’ve ever done! It’s 25 minutes, and Shaun T always has such an uplifting attitude even when I feel like I can’t do it!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 60 pounds! I was so surprised at how fast the weight was coming off with just 25 minutes a day! The clothes that I wore in high school are even too big for me now! I was never able to do a push up, and by the end of alpha and beta, I was doing all the push-ups with them! I even have definition in my arms now which I’ve never had!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have so much more energy during the day, and I’ve never felt better! I’m proud of how far I’ve come, and happy to be working towards the body I’ve always wanted!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
She was awesome! She added me to Facebook a Challenge Group where everyone posted their daily workouts, motivational quotes, and kept each other accountable. She also sent daily motivational pictures, and when I would text her about not wanting to workout that day, she would always push me to some of the best workouts I’ve ever had. Also, seeing her progress with using Beachbody, motivated me to stick with it when I felt like giving up!
