Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Growing up, I was always a thin girl. I noticed that I was gaining weight gradually. The weight gain was very noticeable. My midsection and lower body were my biggest problem areas. I felt sluggish, and was no longer as confident as I always had been. I knew something needed to be done, but always put it off due to procrastination, laziness, and no self discipline. I felt horrible. I stopped wearing most of my clothes. I stuck with baggy shirts and sweaters to hide my body shape. At that point, I knew it was time. If I waited any longer, I would be dealing with a huge regret in my life. I didn’t want to be the person that let herself go and turn into a completely different person. It was time.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My husband, Eric had P90X on his mind for quite some time, but had a heart condition that didn’t allow him to exercise. I looked into the program with him, and we viewed several stories about people that turned their lives around and got in tremendous shape all with P90X. I was starting to get very determined to do this too. My husband had the surgery that cured his heart. After just a few weeks, he was in good health to begin exercising. We set the date to begin, and we mentally prepared for this challenge. I was so ready. So ready.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced before beginning the program was doubt in myself. I had never stuck with consistent exercise or a healthy diet in my life. I knew I was out of shape. I wasn’t sure I would be able to do a good enough job to succeed through the entire program. I didn’t see myself as a strong woman, physically. I still remember day one like it was yesterday. I couldn’t do one single push up. So, I got on my knees to modify it. I couldn’t do that either. I tried the hardest I’ve ever tried on every single move. By day 90, I was doing 20 reps of push ups and all ab moves. Wow! I now crush every single workout, and I love plyometrics! Thanks to my husband, our Beachbody Coach, and Tony Horton for turning me into a beast.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
The achievements that I am most proud of are what used to be my most problematic areas. My thighs, legs, and abs shredded so much fat and gained so much muscle that I am now toned in all these areas. I knew I would get toned, but not like this. Not this fast! I lost inches in my waist and thighs, and I feel so much stronger! My quads are very defined. I actually have hard abs! Wow! Me? Really?! At day 1 I weighed 135 lbs at 26% body fat, and at day 90 I weighed 114 lbs with 15.89% body fat. Talk about an all around terrific killer program. If I could recommend anything to anyone, I recommend P90X any day. If anyone wants to lose weight, build strength, get healthy, and feel the best they have ever felt, this is it. This was the perfect jump start to a healthy lifestyle and healthy body. I am so committed to this, and support Beachbody 100%.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has changed immensely. I know how to eat on a regular basis. I’ve learned so much about myself through this program. P90X helped me dig deep and find something in me that I never knew was there. Having a Beachbody Coach that had the knowledge to help both me and my husband with all questions that we had made it much better for us to each our goals. I am in the best shape I have ever been in my entire life! I feel like I can do anything now. I’m physically strong and very healthy. I am so proud and thankful. I have become the best version of me, and it’s only the beginning.
