Jeffrey M.
Lost 56 LBS in 90 days!
I decided to make it sort of a New Year's resolution to start P90X . . . I was 273 pounds on Day 1 and 217 pounds on Day 90 . . . I can carry my head higher and stride with confidence when entering a room.
What Jeffrey M. won:
$1,000
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * I was eating too much candy, cookies and ice cream. I never read labels and ate whatever I wanted. I was unhappy and ashamed of what I looked like weight wise. I knew I wanted a healthier lifestyle. I was always athletic, but I had gained so much weight, I was having trouble riding my bike. Also, age was a factor. I'm 55 years old and needed a change for the better. I didn't want to go into the final chapters of my life overweight and out of shape.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * It was time to do something drastic, but I needed to wait until after the holidays. I started thinking about a change in October 2011, but with Thanksgiving and Christmas and all the food opportunities the holidays have to offer, it didn't seem realistic to me to make the change at that time. I decided to make it sort of a New Year's resolution to start P90X .
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * Gettin into the right mindset to complete this journey. I have a very strong mind and a drive to succeeed whan I commit to somthing. Once I picked a day to start, I committed to finishing. I researched what equipment to buy and as soon as everyhting arrived, I was on my journey. By visiting the Beachbody website and reading about successes and challenges, I was able to stay plugged in. I feel we all can learn from other people's success and failures. I did struggle during Week 6 and again on Week 9. I pushed through and made it. Round 2 starts today!
Why did you choose this particular program? * I have a friend whos wife and daughter had completed P90X and I checked it out online. I talked to another friend who had done bits and pieces of the program but had never done the full 90 days. I wanted "real" results and I was willing to work hard to achieve them. By the the people I had talked to and the research I did, I could see that P90X could work for me.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * P90X is not for the meek, it is a serious workout everyday. I need a good challenge to stay engaged. The fast results were great for my confidence. If I had picked a program where the results didn't come as fast, I may have not completed it.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I was 273 pounds on Day 1 and 217 pounds on Day 90. I did not measure any other parts of my body, the weight was the most important. I knew if I lost a substantial amount of weight, I could fit into clothes that had been put away a long time ago. I did not eat one cookie, have any ice cream or have any candy. I also cut out starches (white ones) out of what I'm eating. I know I need to continue the D-I-E-T portion into Round 2 as I want to lose 15 to 20 more pounds.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * I can carry my head higher and stride with confidence when entering a room. I do some public speaking and people do look at you different when you are fit.
