Nkemka S. was 23 years old and hated how she looked. She knew she had to get in shape but was at a loss as to how to start her weight-loss journey. After seeing Beachbody’s testimonials and their real life results, she decided to give it a try for herself. She completed FOCUS T25, INSANITY, and INSANITY MAX:30 and lost 60 pounds in just a year! Hear her amazing story in her own words below:
One night I looked in the mirror and started crying. At 23 years old, I weighed 205 pounds and was not healthy at all. Not only was I unhealthy, but I was unhappy. I had severe depression and really bad anxiety. I wasn’t myself. I knew I was overweight. Even my doctor told me I needed to lose weight. At that point I knew it was time. I needed to make a change. I finally decided instead of sitting around and wishing I was healthy, it was time to actually make the change.
I was never really good with sticking to a workout routine or dieting. I always saw commercials about FOCUS T25. At first I thought to myself “all those people are Photoshopped,” but to my surprise and through my own research, I saw that these were real people with real transformations. I realized that it was possible and I could do it. Hard work and determination can get you anywhere. So I thought, 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week will be the best way for me to start.
The first week I started, I wanted to give up, but I told myself, “not this time.” This time I was changing myself and sticking with it. I went through all three phases of FOCUS T25. At the end of the 13 weeks, I started to love myself again. I was 30 pounds down and feeling better than ever. I fit into my old pants again and was gaining my confidence back. I was starting to feel happier and actually wanted to be around people. I knew I was getting healthier as well. I no longer needed my depression medication and my anxiety went down tremendously!
After FOCUS T25, I did INSANITY and lost another 20 pounds! When INSANITY MAX:30 came out, I knew I had to try that too! I mean, who doesn’t love Shaun T and his motivation? I lost another 10 pounds for a total of 60 pounds lost! With daily exercise and proper eating, I am now a healthier stronger me! I am so thankful that I took that leap and used the last little bit of money in my bank account to purchase FOCUS T25. My health was more important to me than money. So I did what I had to do, and over a year later, I know it was the best decision that I made in my life!
