Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started the Ultimate Reset in May of 2014, I was completely miserable! I have spent the majority of my adolescence and adult life on a diet, and I decided enough was enough. The only way I could lose weight was to starve myself. I was tired, hungry, and angry all the time. I was trapped in a horrible nightmare, and knew the Ultimate Reset and Beachbody would help me on my long journey to lose weight and start leading a healthier lifestyle.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I was tired of missing out on the fun events in life like birthday parties, kid’s sporting events, and friend/family get togethers because none of my clothes fit. I was too embarrassed to go out of the house, and knew it was time for a change! Every winter I gained about 20 pounds, and had a VERY difficult time losing it every summer. It seemed like I was only fit and healthy during the months of July and August. I really hoped the Ultimate Reset would set me on the right path, and it has!!! I feel great, and I am determined to continue eating healthy and exercising.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
I always felt alone with no support because my husband and step-children are thin and fit. My pantry and refrigerator were constantly filled with unhealthy food. I was so overwhelmed every time I walked into the kitchen. I would eat what I wanted instead of what I should have eaten. I am so grateful for Beachbody because I have now learned how to fuel my body correctly. I can now walk into the kitchen and eat what I want because the foods I crave are the foods I need: fruits, veggies, and proteins! I have met so many amazing people through Beachbody who I know will be lifelong supporters and friends!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I, for the first time in my life, can honestly say I am healthy and happy. I lost weight, but more importantly my whole attitude changed. I love the Ultimate Reset, and can’t wait to complete it again! I learned so much about eating right. I have eliminated dairy, red meat, and processed foods from my diet as a result of the Ultimate Reset. I am down an additional 3 pounds since I stopped the reset on May 29th. I am so happy to have my life back. Even my husband comments on how happy I am!
