Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? As a caretaker for my Aunt and then babysitting for twin grandchildren, I had very little time for myself and allowed myself to put on more and more weight and overall felt very tired and exhasted at the end of the day. I wasn't even thinking about the terrible foods I was eating.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? My son lost over 50 lbs with P90x and Shakeology. My daughter in-law also started with Slim 6 and Shakeology, lost weight and really toned up. So I wanted in on that action.
Why did you choose the particular program? Shakeology is a great way to start when you are questioning your fitness capabilities. P90x looked too extreme to this grandmother, and even Slim 6 was too much. So I found out that Shakeology included some workouts and my thought was to clean up my nutrition, and introduce work out programs that I could handle.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? There really isn't an easier way to start losing weight and eating healthier then by using Shakeology as a meal replacement once a day. The work out programs included allowed me to start at my level and once I completed the 30 DVD, I then moved up to the 50 DVD. I really love those programs and love Shakeology even more.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? I factured my foot and had to wear a protective foot boot and which really hampered my physical activity. It was at that time that I started Shakeology and realized that I could in fact start to lose weigh even thought my physical activity was not where I wanted it.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? I lost over 35 lbs with Shakeology and I love it! I'm also ready now to come off my HBP and Cholesterol medication! And I'm now fitting in dress sizes that I haven't been able to do since the 80's! Going on 70 and able to perform the workouts is my greatest achievement along with keeping up with my twin grandchildren with all their activities. I use to sit back and watch them as they rode the rides at our local amusement part Kings Island. But now I run around the park with them participating in all rides and activities! I've also joined a local silver Sneaker class and happy to report I'm running circles around them!!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Annette was always there for me and making sure to motivate me. She would invite me over to make sure I understood how to pre-pare shakeology correctly and always treated me to a serving. She also helped with my nutritional education and I learned a great deal on how to better prepare whole foods. And Annette really motivated with her dedication to the work out programs which helped me to keep plugging away day after day.
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits? Shakeology was the key to my transformation success. Not only did it simplify my nutrition, but I really truely looked forward to it each day. I don't have to worry about taking additional supplements, and i'm garantees to have more then enough energy for the day. Some would say I have too much energy!
What tips or tools on TeamBeachbody.com did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental? I don't have easy access to the computer, so I had my son help me out with the Meal Planner. But we did use the Meal Planner wizard up front and that helped me to get my start and understanding on the meals I needed to prepare.
