†Results vary depending on starting point and effort.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I’ve been working out for a few years, and consistently over the last year. I felt that in the last few months my metabolism has slowed considerably. I became lazy with my eating, developed bad habits, and gained 10-12 pounds. I thought I was eating clean, but I was snacking too much and enjoying too many sweets. I was not happy with my body or the way I was feeling. I was always bloated and gassy feeling after eating a meal. I had coffee every morning, and was sluggish until I had my coffee. My overall feeling and confidence about my body was low. I didn’t want to be out in a swimsuit for the summer, and was discouraged by the way my clothes were fitting.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I knew I needed to change my habits and get back to the way I had lived and eaten before. I also felt like my body needed a break from all the working out I had done over the last couple years. I really didn’t give myself a break much. I wanted to do the Ultimate Reset to help get my metabolism going again and to have a better relationship with food. I wanted to fuel my body with the nutrients it needs rather than what I was craving.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge before the program was finding the motivation to eat the way I knew I needed to eat. I knew I needed to be cleaning up my diet and getting rid of the processed snacks I would find myself munching on. I was used to snacking often and eating out of emotions and boredom. I had a hard time getting myself out of the habit of doing those things. The Ultimate Reset gave me exactly what I needed to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat. I didn’t have to guess. I cleaned up my diet tremendously during the Ultimate Reset, and fell in love with new foods and recipes.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
After the Ultimate Reset, I have more energy, increased balance, and a better relationship with food. My sweets cravings are gone, I’m not dependent on caffeine (or coffee), and I sleep better! I am no longer bloated or gassy.2 The Ultimate Reset has changed the shape of my body. I feel confident in my swimsuit, and now love going to the beach or pool with my family. With these results, I am now more determined to get the results of muscle definition that I have always wanted to have. I’m motivated to keep eating clean and feeding my body with the nutrients it needs. I’m excited about the way the Ultimate Reset has helped shape my mind into a different way of thinking about food, about my body, and about what my body really needs.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
