Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After moving to NM, I went into a huge downward spiral of grief and depression! After losing my 26 year old son the previous year, I completely lost my focus on everything. I was disgusted when I looked at myself in the mirror because I had allowed myself to gain all the weight back that I had originally lost with Beachbody products. I was back up to 187 pounds! I had high blood pressure and was on medication. I felt defeated.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
Right after Christmas, I was on a mission of self destruction. I got a wake up call that would definitely get my attention! I had been drinking too much, trying to numb the pain in my heart and decided one night that I could drive myself home after about 6 or so glasses of wine. I got pulled over, and instead of getting a DWI, he asked me if I had someone to call. That was a big eye opener for me…I have never been pulled over before. I knew that happened to some people, but not to me. I was smarter then that. Stronger than that. That incident could have ruined my life for a very long time. I knew that God was trying to get my attention and He did. Thank God for second chances! I decided that I definitely needed to get a hold of myself and recommit myself to living a life that my son would be proud of.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My biggest challenge was deciding that life was worth it. That I was worth it. Deciding that I had to do this for me, not about everyone else. Doing the Beachbody Ultimate Reset this time Changed my life. I can do anything now. For the first time, maybe ever, I know I’m getting healthy and fit for me and it feels so good! I had never followed a meal plan with any of the programs that I had done before and now I know just how important they are to achieve the results I want! I know that by skipping that part of the program, I was only “playing at it” I wasn’t really serious. The Ultimate Reset changed all of that! Now, I couldn’t be more serious! I’m worth it!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved learning how to eat for optimum health and wellness! I loved learning about how the food I was eating was effecting not only my physical health but also my mental health. My mental clarity, my moods, my sleep patterns and even my hot flashes. I can even breathe better! I love this program!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost a total of 17.8 pounds and 15.5 inches over all. I am so proud that I’m only 6 pounds from my lowest weight ever and I was able to do it in only 21 Days! That’s amazing! I was also reminded of how great it felt to be healthy and eat clean. I love this program and advocate for it 1,000 percent!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I’m in control now. I am happy. confident and have a ton of courage! I know that I can achieve any amount of success I choose! I know what it takes to be focused and disciplined. I love my life and I own it! Onward and upward from here!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained?
I received all these results with the Ultimate Reset! When its bed time, I go to sleep within 10 minutes max and sleep through the night Yet when I wake up I have enough energy to get through my day! My moods and mental clarity are great and I’m not bloated anymore at all!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I no longer have to take meds for high blood pressure, or supplements for Hot Flashes, which is a huge blessing!
