I won $50,000 for getting fit, healthy and living life to the fullest!!!!Wow! Where do I begin with this amazing transformation story? It started over 4 years ago. My story is a real transformation success because it is a permanent, lasting, life-long change! It wasn’t just for 90 days. It is 1651 days and counting! I’m not going back! To date, I have done countless rounds of P90, PHH , TJ and I just finished my 4th round of P90 X!! I was fortunate enough to represent the successes in the 2005 Hawaii success story contest. What an exhilarating 7 days but it didn’t end there. It wasn’t about the trip; it was about being healthy for the rest of my life!
BIO re-cap: I’m a 47-year-old mother of 3 biological daughters. (I’ve helped raise 8 though). I’ve just gone through a divorce. Actually, BB and my new lifestyle gave me the confidence to realize that I didn’t want to be married to an alcoholic who didn’t want to be healthy. It was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve made but I know it’s for the best! I am a science, Health /PE teacher to 165 students. I come from a very large, overweight family. During my college years of drinking beer, eating pizza, and motherhood years of eating junk food and driving through fast food restaurants with my kids, I continually yo’ yo’d from a size 16 to a 12. I kidded myself that a size 12 was the lowest I could ever be. My family thought I was anorexic at a size 12. I always had a smile on my face but on the inside I hated my body. I was an athlete in high school and I knew I had muscles under there screaming to be FLEXED. I had started and stopped countless exercise and diet plans in the last 25 years. I knew how to eat healthy but I didn’t make it a habit. Something had to change. It was time for ME!
I came across the P90 infomercial on a fluke, I never watch TV. I called the phone number and fate was set. I ordered P90. I lost 7 pounds before I even received my DVD because I joined a thread and got support and advice from wonderful people there. On May 15, 2004 I started pushing play day by day. I relied on the message boards and the phone support. My first 90 days were amazing!!!! I lost 16 pounds, 15.5 inches (4.5 inches off my waist alone) When I went back to school that fall, everyone flipped!!!
Somewhere in that first round, I realized that this is not just a fad for 90 days; it needed to be a lifestyle change.
Do you know I do walking commercials for you guys all the time?? People come up to me and ask, "How do I do it?" They are surprised that I don’t go to a gym or have a personal trainer. I tell them about Power 90, Beachbody and how I workout in my family room! No one can believe I’m 46. I see people that I haven’t seen in years and they literally don’t recognize me! I was just asked last weekend if I was a body builder! Who would have thought 4 years ago that I’m considering strutting on a stage in a bikini flexing my muscles?? I look in the mirror or look at my pictures and still can’t believe it’s me. I have my navel pierced and share clothes with my 16 and 18 year old! Holy smokes!
Some physical feats I have accomplished are: Went skydiving l (freefall by myself), trained and competed in 7 triathlons, took ski patrol classes, and roller bladed 20 miles, did a century ride on my bike (100 miles) certified personal trainer and turbo kick instructor! just to name a few. Future goals include; run a marathon, , and adventure racing. In other words, the sky is the limit. I’ll try anything!
My healthy quest has gone even to a higher level. It’s not about looking good; it’s about sharing my knowledge and joy of living healthy. I am an example to my daughters. They get angry when we run out of fruit and produce in the house! They drink protein shakes instead of ice cream and workout regularly. I have several students who have gone through fantastic transformations with my guidance and inspiration. I can’t tell you how that makes me feel when I see them and they thank me. I want to shout it from the rooftops! I want to share my knowledge and help people make healthy choices for life.
My stats to date are:
Inches: 22 overall
Sizes: 16 to a 6!
Body fat: before: too much, Present: low and lean!
Confidence, Energy, Youthfulness, Health, Happiness, Strength, Flexibility
“Decide, Commit, Succeed” I’m living proof that P90 and P90X works.
Thank you Thank you Thank you. Those words aren’t near enough to express my feelings.
I am a Beachbody Girl for life!!
