Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * Before the Reset Cleanse I had already been drinking Shakeology and had seen some results with weight loss and energy levels. I was still having some cravings for sweets. Looking back now, I wasn't eating as clean as I thought I was because I was still eating a lot of processed foods and I was addicted to sugar. My energy levels had improved because of Shakeology but I was wanting to take things to the next level with the way I was eating. I was struggling to lose the weight from having my son. I had never committed to a cleanse for 21 days and I new I needed to cleanse my body of the toxins that had accumulated over the last 33 years. It's funny, I still look pregnant in some of my before pictures. I was really struggling to lose the last 10-15 lbs and I really wanted to get back to the weight I was before I had my son. I really wanted to feel good wearing a 2 piece bikini again. My confidence was low and I often wore clothes that hid my "pooch
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * Beachbody inspired me. I used to work for a company that catered the holiday parties for Beachbody and I new of the company but had never tried any of their products. I met a girl who was a Coach for Beachbody and she introduced Shakeology to me. I fell in love with the company after drinking Shakeology for 2 weeks. Immediately I felt a change in my energy levels and my moods. I also lost some weight. I stopped spending my money at Starbucks and started investing in my health by getting Shakeology on Home Direct. I became a Coach and went to Coach Summit 2012 in Vegas and that's when I decided to do the Reset Cleanse. My sister in law and I committed to the cleanse together and we both saw huge results. It has completely changed the way I eat and I don't mind cooking anymore. I'm now doing the program Insanity. Beachbody has completely changed my life. I am happy and feel so fulfilled.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * The biggest challenge I faced was my craving for sweets and processed foods. I do not crave sweets anymore. I crave healthy foods like vegetables and fruit. I also did not enjoy cooking and felt like their weren't many options when it came to cooking. The Reset Cleanse helped to get rid of my sugar cravings and it showed me a ton of different meals to cook for myself and my family. I feel so much better now that I eat clean. My body has the nutrition it needs to operate at its best.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * I loved the recipes. There was so much support with the website and the cooking videos. The recipes were easy to follow and I learned so many new things to cook.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I do not crave sugar and processed foods anymore. I learned so many new recipes and it completely changed the way I eat every day. I lost 10 lbs.!! I feel confident wearing a bikini again!!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * I will never eat the way I used to eat. My body craves fruits and vegetables and healthy meals. I don't mind cooking for myself and my family. I feel more confident and I love sharing with people what Beachbody has done with my body physically and mentally. I feel happy, confident, and fulfilled. Beachbody has truly changed my life.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? The challenge group is still going. My sister-in-law and myself started with the Reset Cleanse and 2 other people started with Insanity. After the Reset Cleanse, my sister-in-law and I moved on to Insanity. Having the group helped tremendously. We would post every day to share the ups and downs and we really supported one another. My sister-in-law and I would call each other all the time just to check in and to make sure we were sticking to the plan. We also gave each other a heads up if there was a little preparation with some of the meals. I probably wouldn't have stuck to it if I didn't have the support and my sister-in-law holding me accountable.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? My coach was great with giving me the foundation I needed to become a coach.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity? Shakeology has been an amazing addition to my life and I will probably drink it for the rest of my life. The health benefits are just unbelievable. I love the Chocolate flavor and I drank the Vegan Chocolate while I was doing the Reset Cleanse. I drank it as my snack. It gives me more energy, it has helped with my weight loss, it helped balance out my mood swings and my PMS, and it helped to improve my workouts. I feel like I am a happier person in general because my brain and body are getting the nutrition in needs. That $4.00 a day I was spending at Starbucks now goes to the healthiest meal of the day and I feel the best I have ever felt in my entire life. No joke!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? Having the support from the website and having another person to do the Reset Cleanse with helped me to finish the Reset Cleanse. I could not have done it without the support from Beachbody and my sister-in-law. The cooking videos were awesome as well. I learned so many new recipes. Thank you for changing my life Beachbody!!
