Jennifer S.
Mother of three lost 86 lbs!
I am such a happier, healthier, more confident woman, wife and mother now. P90X not only improved my health, it changed everything else in my life.
What Jennifer S. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? Before P90X I had just become a mother for the third time in less than 3 years and just started settling into what my life had become, not having time for myself any longer and always putting my family and kids first. I worked full-time and traveled an excruciating amount and didn’t have time to take time out for myself. Like most mothers and wives my life revolved around my family first and well, one day I was going to have time for me.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? One day after my youngest child turned 9 months old I had one of those ah-hah moments when a friend of mine took a picture of me at a party and I was never ever in the pictures because I was the one always taking them and she posted it on facebook and the first thing I could think of was “Holy crap I am fat”. The next week I was talking to a coworker and was fixing my hair and had the most embarrassing moment when she said disclosed that she had seen my belly flop out from under my shirt when I was fixing my hair. It was the most HORRIFYING and EMBARRASSING moment I had ever had in my life. It literally sent me into tears. I never realized how much I had let myself go since having kids in such a short period of time since being married. Just 4 years prior I was a size 6 and 140 pounds and now I was a size 18 and 210 pounds and was being to worry about where I was going to be buying my clothes soon since they didn’t sell over a size 18 in the store I shopped in.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? P90X and Insanity gave me the ability to have a set schedule each night and they both took the guess work out of it for me. I no longer had the excuse where I didn't know what I was suppose to be doing or I didn't know what to eat, the guess work was taken out of everything for me! P90X offered me the ability of a well balanced program that had a grerat balance of cardio and resistance training. While Insanity which I did after my 90 days with P90X really helped lean me out and make me a tighter, fitter, leaner me. I always tell people that P90X built the foundation and Insanity leaned me out.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? Truthfully, the biggest obstacle I had to face was not within myself, because I was fully committed to wanting to provide myself and my family the very best I could give them and guarantee that I would be here for them for a long time, but rather it was the lack of support from my family and friends around me who began to say I was obsessed about the way I looked and that I should be happy with the way I was because the people around me accepted me as such. Both my family and my husband's family do not make their health a priority in their life and no matter what I would say or do they just didn't get it. They couldn't see this was something I was doing for myself, not my friends or my family. I had to want it because no one else can make you want it. Their negativity actually just pushed me harder and made me want the change that much more.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? Oh my goodness, how hasn’t P90X changed my life?! I am such a happier, healthier, more confident woman, wife and mother now. P90X not only improved my health, it changed everything else in my life. I became more active with my children, my relationship with my husband improved because I had more self confidence and professional career improved because I now believed in myself . I now know I can do anything I put my mind too! I LOVE fitness, it is my drug and I cannot get enough! Yes, some people think I am crazy, but they just don’t understand. Once I had this new self feeling, I craved it, I wanted it more and more each and every day. I want every person around me to feel the same way I feel now because I know it can work for them. I have never in my life been this fit, this size and this healthy in my life, EVER! Some people say they want to look like they did back in High School, I say no way I want me now!!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? When I originally bought P90X I was assigned a coach since I bought it through the Beachbody site and not the coach site. Eventually after P90X a friend of mine who I got interested in Beachbody became a Coach and I soon went under her, funny if you think about it. We both constantly are helping each other strive for our greatest potential in fitness and health. She still supports me to this day and I do the same thing for her now. We only want to see each other reach our greatest potentials.
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits? At first I was totally skeptical. How was this little shake suppose to help me lose weight?? I didn't really get it. But boy I was wrong. I had tried previously to lose weight without trying to fix my diet and all I was doing was fighting an uphill battle. I finally tried Shakeology and I was hooked. In the first two weeks drinking Shakeology once a day I lost 12 pounds!!! I was eating my own words!! I now drinking Shakeology everyday to help keep my energy through the roof and keep my nutrition in check.
What tips or tools on did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental? I absolutely LOVED the message boards! It provided a great place to meet other people like myself who were going through the same ups and downs as myself and they soon became my family. I didn't ahve the supportive friends and family as I wish I had and Team Beachbody became that for me.
