What Elizabeth S. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? My life prior to my whole life transformation was a difficult, dark and depressing life. There were many things going on that led to it and during this period, I had many health issues. I had high blood pressure, thyroid disorder, pre diabetes, and . In the past couple of years I was on as many as 9 different medications for all of these health related issues. I became a slug and did nothing but sit at home and feel sorry for myself and pack on the pounds! I hit my peak weight in January 2010 at 278 lbs! I could not even look in the mirror and believe that the image reflecting back to me was me! During this time in my life, I tried to be around my family as much as possible as they would give me the courage and confidence that I needed to believe that my life could change. I leaned on them and God for as much guidance that I could get.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? There began a time that I could not eat and I was just sinking deeper into and I knew that I had to do something to get my life on track. My niece got into Beachbody big time and shared the benefits of the program and products with our whole family. I was a bit of a skeptic, but I sat back and observed to see what it was all about. I decided that I needed to do something to get the vitamins and minerals that my body needed to survive, so I gave the Shakeology a try! I was able to keep it down and gain strength to start moving and gained a clearer head to start thinking about what I needed to do. Before I knew it, I was exercising, drinking my shakes and loosing weight! I was feeling great! Then, as the weight fell off, so did the medications!!!! My doctors and I are all in agreement that the Shakeology is the leading cause of my "picture perfect" health, at this time, I am on NO medications, my weight is hovering at 142!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? I liked the Beachbody program because, at was something that I could do in private and didn't have to share with anyone. (I was not confident that it would work for me, afterall...I was a fat slug and didn't have much hope) But as the time passed and the weight started falling off, I realized that I finally found what worked for me. I was in (and still am) amazement of how good I feel and how much weight I have lost! The shakes are great tasting and the 30 and 50 minute exercise are great! I now go to a gym, on top of that and have moved passed where I ever thought that I would be in my life! I have never been someone that exercised and never had the will to do so, but now....I feel the need for it daily!
Tell us about the greatest challenge you faced. How did you overcome that challenge? The biggest challenge that I probably encountered, was actually loosing the weight! I know, sounds strange, but true... I had been down on myself for so long that I just never thought that things would change for me. As the weight started to come off, I became more confident in myself, finally believing and knowing that this was a new path of life for me. I cannot stress enough, how much my life has changed! I have no health issues and a life that is full of positive challenges and excitement! I have moved into the working world again after not working for 11 years and I am in sales/leasing, which is not anything in my past life that I would have done. But with the weight loss and the new found great health, I have the confidence to face the world with the challenges put in my path for growth into my new life!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody® program. What achievements are you proud of? The results of my Beachbody program, as I have been saying are just incredible! Of course, the first thing I want to say that I am the most proud of is the weight loss of 130 + lbs!! The fact that I was a size 20/22 and now I am an 8 to 10!!! The fact that during this time, I handed it all over to God to lead me through this journey and that through all of this positive change, I have positive that surrounds me daily! I know that it led to my self confidence and the courage to take on any new challenges that come my way, because....I know I can do it! AND I do not want to fail to mention again...the fact that I was on as much as 9 different medications a year ago, and now....I take NO medications as all! To sum it all up in one word....AMAZING!!!!!!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? What can I say about my TeamBeachbody Coach, Trudi Hallett? She has been a rock for me during this time, constantly encouraging me. She gives advice on the shakes and different recipes, exercises to do, and educating me on other products within the Beachbody program. Trudi prays for me, she encourages me with the fact that what has be accomplished is a huge accomplishment, (as I still have a hard time believing that this is all happened) I honestly believe that Trudi is probably my biggest fan at this time in my life and I am ever so blessed to have her on my side with all of the encouragement and pride that she too has taken in this journey with me!
How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the biggest benefits? Shakeology, I truly believe was the cause of my transformation! The fact that it is packed with vitamins and minerals that your body has to have, led me to my healthy state that I am in now...The biggest benefit of the Shakeology is that I am medication free and at a healthy weight! My doctor is in amazement of (as he states) my picture perfect health!
