Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I’m am entering my results as a full year of Beachbody! I started my transformation last October after the birth of my second child. Since then, I have completed ChaLEAN Extreme, Focus T25, PiYo, and I’m now almost done with my 2nd round of T25. It has been the most incredible year. I started off 9 weeks postpartum, and have whipped myself into phenomenal shape in the comfort of my own home!4 Woohooo, I absolutely love these programs. So awesome!
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I began my journey after the birth of my 2nd child. I have dealt with PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome) and eating healthy and working out helps minimize my symptoms. I am inspired by my children and my husband. I want to be fit and healthy for them! I want to give women hope! I want women with PCOS to know that you can feel good in your own skin!1
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
One of the biggest challenges I faced, like most moms, is time! It is hard to find time with two kids under the age of 2. I have to fit my workouts in during naptime or before anyone wakes up for the day. When I am tired, the last thing I want to do is load everyone up and trudge to the gym. I want to work out in the comfort of my own home. I don’t have to “Get ready” I can take breaks if anyone needs me. I have NO excuses this way!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I truly have loved every program I have done this year! In fact, I plan to do a hybrid of them all after I finish my second round of T25.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I was able to fit into a size 4. A size 4! I was always a size 10, often even a size 12. Although I know sizing is all relative, it felt amazing to have a size 4 fit. I mean, never in my wildest dreams would I have guessed my legs and waist would fit a size four. It’s just crazy to me how my body over the year continued to shrink. I had bought some goal jeans that were size 8. To me, that would have been awesome! Then, they got too big. So, I bought a pair of size 6. Then, those started to get a bit baggy. So on a whim, I tried on a size four, and low and behold, they fit! Amazing.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I went from an exhausted mom with two little ones, to a vibrant mom, full of energy! I have the patience, the positive mood, the amazing outlook on life that I always knew I wanted. My body has transformed but so has my mind.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Yes! The Challenge Group, to me, was the missing puzzle piece in past attempts at any fitness program. Our group was fun, motivating, supportive during rough times and provided the accountability I needed to see this program thru to the end!
How did Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset® support your transformation?
Oh Shakeology how I love thee! Seriously, how do you describe something so amazing? That’s rhetorical! 🙂 Shakeology gives me a smooth energy boost (not a jittery one, like coffee can do). It absolutely boosts my mood and allows me to tackle every day with a clear head, tons of energy, and I just feel good with it! Digestion and regularity are wonderful benefits, as is a deep sleep! Wow, great stuff!2
