Shakeology has been the biggest part of my weight loss success . . . I am happy, leaner and healthy.
What Wendy S. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? For the past 2 years I've been into weight loss. I was doing ALOT of spinning. I did end up losing alot of weight but just going to the gym eveyday was pretty hard with my busy lifestyle. I was trying to eat as healthy as I can, not really knowing what to eat. Then I started having some really bad digestive problems. I was rushed to the ER several answers to what was wrong. Went to a few answers either. Then after going to a Nutrisionist I was diagnosed with Celiac disease which was that I was allergic to Gluten. I was in constant pain, bloated all the time, couldn't eat anything without being in discomfort, no energy to exercise. Then I got pregnant with my 4th child. After the pregnancy, stomach issues came back. Again... trying to eat healthy but with my problem... eating healthy wouldn't help my situation. I was depressed all the time and crying all the time. I had gained 45 pounds and couldn't even have a glance of myself through the mirror.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? Having a Major depression issues and Digestive problems, I knew I had to do something different. After seeing some posting of a friend that is a Coach through facebook.....I realized that this is the change that I needed. I not only wanted to lose weight but I wanted to feel happy and good about myself and at the same time teach my family on the proper way of doing of being healthy and active.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? I really like that it pushes you to your limits. I never though that i could actually get through Plyometrics or even do a Chutaranga but it helps you to give it your best on a day by day basis where eventually you get to do all those moves and exercises that you only wished you can do. I gained a lot of body strength in which helped me boost up my self-esteem.
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? My biggest challenge has been being to juggle being a mom of 4, working my photography business from home and managing to do my workouts. I have a 12 year old, a 9 year old, 6 year old and a 1 year old. So I am pretty busy all the time. I've been very lucky to have a husband that helps me out and supports me. We have come up with a schedule were after I have dropped the 3 kids at school, he would take care of the10 month old and meet up with a friend and workout from her home.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? There are a few achievements that I am very proud of. At the beginning it was very hard to hold myself up in a "PLANK" or to even do one complete push-up. Today I can do 15-18 normal push-ups. I feel the strength that I have gained. I was able to run my first 5k back in November in which was an amazing feeling of accomplishment. I've lost a total of 46 Ibs and loving the way my clothes are fitting. My self-esteem is boosting up!!!!!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? From the day that I signed up as a Coach she told me how inspiring I am and that she knew I can do it. She believed in me before I had even started. That meant a lot.
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits? Shakeology has been the biggest part of my weight loss success so far. I originally started taking Shakeology because of the severe digestive problems that I had. I am very allergic to gluten and very unhappy all the time. Once I knew that Shakeology was gluten free, that it had digestive enzymes, that moment I knew that this something that I NEEDED to take. Within the first week I was feeling a HUGE difference in my digestive issues. Within the first 3 months I lost a total of 32 pounds, no more bloating, I was regular and then I had all the energy in the world to to P90X. Shakeology really has been the best health decision I have made for me and my family. My family is benefiting from this great shake and they LOVE it. I am happy, leaner and healthy.
What tips or tools on did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental? i really enjoyed watching the videos. Wether it was a specific exercise program or about shakeology. It was very informative.
