Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I just had a baby 5 months ago. Before getting pregnant I was a pretty active runner, but my body stopped responding to running alone post-partum. I gained 60 lbs by my 38th week pregnant. I lost half almost immediately but still had 30 lbs to lose. I was desperate to lose the pregnancy weight but didn’t know how. I was a happy new mom but didn’t feel like myself in my jiggly body.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was desperate to try something different to shock my body. A friend of mine lost her pregnancy weight through FOCUS T25, and I took her advice. I was inspired by her transformation and wanted to do the same for myself.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I was very skeptical at first, and struggled to believe in the program, but I forced myself to open my mind and trust the process. I’m glad I did!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The fact that it’s only 25 minutes and still challenged me more than any workout I’ve done! It’s perfect for busy moms.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 13 lbs and 5 inches off my waist. I am most proud of how I look in my clothes. I have more energy and feel stronger to carry my heavy baby.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have gotten my confidence back. I feel like I can conquer anything now that I managed to give birth to a new life and still get myself back. As Beyonce would say, “strong enough to bear the children, then get back to business.”
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Group helped inspire and motivate me daily. There was accountability for each other and lots of support when we had good and bad days.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Team Beachbody Coach was there for me every step of the way. No matter what time, she was a text or Facebook message away. She never pushed too hard, but answered all my questions. Her own transformation inspired me also.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or 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, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology is the secret to even better results. I didn’t start Shakeology until a month into T25 and there was a huge difference when I did. My progress was slow at first but as soon as I replaced one meal a day with the delicious shake I started to drop weight. It curbs cravings, makes me feel full and I know I’m getting all the nutrients in one delicious drink.
