#TransformationTuesday Timothy M. was tired of struggling with his weight and being embarrassed by his body. He decided to commit to Beachbody and P90X3. He completed 3 rounds and lost 158 pounds and 22 inches in just 8 months! Read his amazing story in his own words below:
As a kid, I was always overweight, eating whatever I wanted. I wasn’t very active. I had horrible allergies and asthma so when I did try to do something, I hated it. I was always the big guy and I just accepted that’s who I was. I never liked fitness, and even in high school when playing football I always felt I was being judged on the field and in the weight room, so I never stuck with it.
By the time I was 19, I was almost 330 lbs, I smoked cigarettes, and I often used alcohol to feel better. I used food as a way to cope with things, and I was eating whatever I wanted and getting no type of exercise. One night after work, I saw the a Beachbody commercial. The next day I logged onto Beachbody.com to find there was a new program called P90X3 that was only 30 minutes. I decided to start there because 30 minutes would be much easier to stick with.
The day I started the program, I was very clumsy and a lot of the moves were very new and very hard. I had to modify a lot of the moves, which helped me to get through the program. After just a few weeks I started to see great results. I was losing weight, but even more importantly, I was feeling so much better. I started enjoying each day more and more, and I started to look forward to my workouts.
After the first round I had gotten down to 255 lbs – which is crazy in 90 days and only 30 minutes a day! I started to really get into fitness and nutrition and I wanted to learn more. I kept pushing through and from then on it became a lifestyle change. After the second round of
After the second round of P90X3 I had gotten down to 210 lbs! Over 100 lbs lost in under half a year. I was now able to start keeping up with the program, which made me feel great about myself. I was no longer having to modify moves and my results kept coming. After I finished the third round, I was at 175 pounds. I then purchased the 3 extra P90X3 DVDs and did the Elite Blocks. Needless to say, it kicked my butt…in a good way! I lost even more fat and my athleticism went to heights I never knew possible.
Today I am no longer the big guy. I refuse to accept that as who I am. I am now the confident, athletic, motivated young man who has big plans for himself. P90X3 has completely changed me, mentally, physically, and emotionally. I am now going to school to try and pursue a career in the physical fitness world and combining that with the opportunity of Beachbody Coaching. I have Beachbody to thank for this wonderful transformation and, of course, the man himself, Tony Horton, for inspiring me to keep pushing play every day.
