Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I have always struggled with my weight and have had bouts of depression. At one point, I felt so overwhelmed by the thought of losing weight that I let myself get to my heaviest ever at 180. After I started with FOCUS T25 and lost up to 20 pounds, I was looking for something that could help me with my diet. My diet was really not that great so I decided to do 21 Day Fix.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was pregnant with my second child, and knew I wasn’t going to have time for the gym with two little ones at home. I knew how hard it was for me to lose weight after my first daughter, so I wanted to be prepared once I had my second child. I had seen a friend posting about Beachbody, and I reached out to her about FOCUS T25. I bought a Challenge Pack and started it two months after my daughter was born. I did 21 Day Fix, because I needed something that was going to get my meal planning right and help me lose the additional weight.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest issue was meal planning. But with me doing a Challenge Group, I was able to make a plan for others and therefore keep myself accountable.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I like how it came with the portion-control containers. I also like that it had a meal plan that allows you to eat real food, and didn’t cut back too many things to make it hard to stick to the plan.


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I’m most proud of how I’ve stuck to the plan even after the 21 days. I’m now down another five pounds thanks to the meal plan. I feel absolutely incredible. It still amazes me what my body has transformed into. I am so inspired and motivated to help others feel the same way. Even after kids, it is possible to be your best self ever.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My confidence level is increasing, and I want to help others feel how I feel! I can now do FOCUS T25 full out, and have had a tremendous increase in energy since starting Shakeology. I am in better shape after kids than before. To celebrate, I registered myself for the Beachbody Classic at Summit and walked across stage. It was a huge goal for me, since I have never felt comfortable in a swimsuit ever.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I believe that the Challenge Group definitely helped me reach my goals. They stuck to the meal plans and posted their meals. Therefore, it allowed me to stay close to my plan and reach my goals.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She was there for me if I had any questions about the meal plan or the portion-control containers.

How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, or digestion/regularity?
I definitely see the difference when using Shakeology. I was more energized, able to do my workout, and felt better overall. I no longer have cravings of sweets. It has provided me with an extra energy boost, and relieved digestion issues I had before+.

How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
It helped me with my self-esteem and with my overall appearance.
