Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I started watching my portion sizes and eating somewhat healthier a few months before I started the program. It wasn’t until I started the program that I really gained confidence and turned my life around. I was ashamed of my body and embarrassed about how I looked beforehand. With help from P90X3, I went from a size 18 to a size 2.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I struggled with many health issues such as obesity, border line diabetes, hypertension, heart problems, migraines and stomach issues. I was on several different medications but now, I am only on one medication for my hypertension. My mother suffers from severe hypertension and, as a result, it has affected her kidneys. I was well on my way down the same path until I decided to do something about it by taking control of my health.1
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenged I faced was getting past my plateau. I lost some weight but didn’t get the results I wanted until I joined the program. I was stressed about my weight loss being stalled, which caused me to start eating and gaining weight. The program helped me lose the weight I needed to, and it has helped me be consistent because of the accountability the program brings.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I liked the fact that the workouts were a different routine each week. I was able to work muscles that I wouldn’t normally work. Also, the variety helped me to not get bored, and I was able to push myself beyond my limitations.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I am stronger than I was in high school when I was an athlete that played multiple sports. My body looks better than it has ever looked, and I am still improving every day.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy. I am stronger, faster, and healthier. I find myself with more confidence, and challenging myself with things I didn’t have the confidence to do before.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Participating in a Challenge Group helped me stay accountable when I thought I might quit. It was good to hear others provide feedback about their progress.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach helped me stay accountable by checking in with me and providing me with motivation on an ongoing basis. My Coach helped me by putting together eating clean challenges with helpful tips about different foods to buy, eat, and prepare. Also, by providing insight and education on foods, the workouts and their importance to your diet and daily routines. My Coach was the one that helped me chose the program I bought after I discussed with her what I was trying to achieve.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
I did try Shakeology for a limited amount of time. The shakes were a good supplement and did help me curb my appetite.2
