P90X and Shakeology took her from “skinny girl” to healthy woman

beachbody challenge daily contest

Meet Stephanie S.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 23rd!



I’ve always been the tall, thin girl, who never had to exercise, or give much thought to what I ate. But then one day I looked in the mirror and didn’t even recognize myself. I had packed on 10 pounds, was bloated beyond belief, and looked exhausted. I felt horrible inside and out, and my confidence was totally shot.

I didn’t know what to do to reverse what I had done until a friend reminded me that I had purchased P90X a few years back, and suggested I give it a try. I’ve always been impressed by the results other people got—so I dug it out, dusted it off, and found my Team Beachbody Coach, Jamie Len Cumbo. I’m so incredibly thankful I did, because Jamie and my Challenge Group helped me turn my life around in just three short months.

It’s really tough going from NEVER working out and eating junk for 21 years, to pushing play EVERY SINGLE DAY and eating healthy! So if it weren’t for Jamie and my Challenge Group, I would have thrown in the towel and quit very early on. The only reason I succeeded was because of the accountability and the inspirational aspect of the group. We’d share tips, recipes, and motivational quotes on a daily basis, which was key to keeping everyone on track.

I’ve never been a major sweets person, but have always been addicted to bad carbs, like breads and pastas. But within the first week of drinking Shakeology, my cravings disappeared, my digestion improved, and my energy level shot up significantly. Looking back, I wish I started drinking url=http://www.teambeachbody.com/nutrition-shake/shakeology]Shakeology[/url] on day one, but unfortunately, I didn’t take my first sip until the last month of P90X. Now I can’t image living without it.

I ended up losing 9 pounds with P90X and Shakeology, and I’m down to my "normal" weight. I went from having 20% body fat to only 14%, and I’ve toned up completely. The body parts I’m most proud of after P90X are my abs. I’ve always been skinny, but I’ve never had abs. Now I do and it feels great! I’ve also regained my confidence and absolutely love life again.

I had such a successful experience that I’m now a Beachbody Coach, on a mission to help others regain their health, bodies, and lives. If I could do it, anyone can.

You can change your life, too. Take The Beachbody Challenge™, for the ultimate motivation to get fit! Select any Beachbody® program and once you complete it, share your results for your chance to win cash and prizes.

Did you just do the P90X 5 days a weeks or every single day for 90 days. I ordered turbo fire and I love your results but when I tried P90X a few years ago I didn't enjoy it but I am at 20% body fat at 5"1 and got there in 5 months with 13lbs. I used to be 18.6% with crossfit and felt good but not complete. I am amazed at your results and I want to work for abs like yours.

Congrats!! You look awesome! We have the same story and same body type! I have always been skinny/fat.... Skinny body and fat tummy, and I never worked out for fear of getting skinnier! I thought gaining weight would fix my problems, and it did make me fill out and look more womanly ...but as I gained my belly got bigger and bigger... Seeing your results has really given me encouragement to keep up with my Beach Body program and change my ways.... In order to get different results, we must do things differently! Keep up the great work!
