Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * I was always an average sized woman (size 8/10) before I had my three kids. After having 3 babies in 6 years I had lost control of my body - I had gained a total of over 153 over the course of the pregnancies - losing most of it after each baby but never looking or feeling the same. After my 3rd child the weight wasn't coming off and I was miserable in my own skin. I was borrowing my Mom's size 14 jeans hoping and praying I'd get back into my pre-pregnancy size 10s. But I wasn't doing anything to get myself there. I tried 3x on my own, failing each time & giving up on myself before I found Beachbody.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * I had my 3rd child, a baby girl named Ollie Faith in February of 2011. After she was born within a month she went into complete heart failure. She slept all day, struggled to gain 4 ounces in a month, it was terrifying and heartbreaking. In June, a day before her 4 month birthday, we handed her over to a team of surgeons for open heart surgery. It was the hardest day of our lives. We finally were able to see her later that afternoon and 3 days later we were able to hold her again. She came home in 5 days on merely Tylenol. She is my inspiration. Within a month she was starting physical therapy to catch up with her peers. It was around this time I realized I needed to CHANGE. If it took OHS for her to get healthy, I sure as heck could exercise and change my eating habits to get healthy for her, my other 2 kids, my husband, and really for myself. I joined a challenge group with my coach & never looked back!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * Giving up on myself was common. I had tried P90X 2x and TurboFire once before my challenge group and quit each time within 2 days. I distinctly remember sitting on my couch watching TurboFire & thinking, I can't do this. My coach inspired me that I COULD! She had a similar story, she was a monther, she was a size 14, and today she's a super fit, healthy size 2. She showed me that anyone could do this if their heart was there. After joining her challenge group I worked hard. We posted day 15 photos & I could see huge changes in my body. It motivated me to push harder for my goals!
Why did you choose this particular program? * I originally started with TurboFire because it looked like a fun dance party. It fit my personality. I loved Chalene and the music combined with fun shake it moves. After I completed TurboFire I took on P90X. I absolutely love to lift & wanted to really tone up and get definition and P90X gave me that. I then took on the Ultimate Reset & transformed my tastebuds & learned to appreciate new foods & how to prepare them so my entire family was happy with healthy meals. Now I'm starting Chalean Extreme. I wanted to get back to my favorite trainer and lift heavy - CLX is perfect for this!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * I loved everything about TurboFire. It had a wide range of workout times. Somedays with 3 kids an hour workout just doesn't fit in, but I could do a fifteen minute HIIT and maybe a 30 minute sculpt in the afternoon. It really worked well with my schedule. I always knew I got in a hardcore workout. I always have a blast doing the workouts with Chalene. Even my kids were singing the songs around the house. We all had fun while I was getting fit.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I went from a size 14 to a size 2/4. I have lost 35 pounds & I look and feel like a new person!! I exercise daily & can't stand to take 2 rest days in a row! I eat & cook clean. My entire family is eating healthier than ever before! I am most proud that I have accomplished my goals. That I honestly did it! That not only did I do it, but I've stuck with it and maintained my weight loss for 6 months at this point! Most people lose weight but struggle with maintenance! I'm so proud that this is a lifestyle for me now, not a "diet".
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * Beachbody has transformed my life! I signed up to coach for the discount. Within 3 months I made enough income that I was able to turn off a social security disability check we were depending on for survival! My husband and I were thrilled! I pushed hard and shortly became a diamond coach. I went to the Bahamas with my coach & just recently Leadership. My husband and I went to Summit in Vegas. We have taken 4 vacations this year! We have been married 8 years and before this year had taken 2 vacations total! As a stay at home Mom I have found my purpose and my passion. To help others. I have the most rewarding "job" in the world & it allows me to stay at home with my babies & make a great income all while helping people change their lives. This is IT for me!
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? Lauren is an amazing coach. She got our small challenge group of women interacting by the hour with each other. We all became good friends, we shared our struggles, our heartaches, and opened up in this group. I knew she didn't care about making a sale, but instead changing my life. She gave me tough love when needed and pushed me to work toward my success!! Every day she was checking in on us, wanting to know our workouts, our nutrition, our results - sharing in that group made me push so hard so make all these incredible women proud of me!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Lauren has been my biggest cheerleader from day 1. She knew me before the challenge group and cared about the struggles my family was having. I was a person to her, not just a customer. When I joined her challenge group she wanted me to hit those goals I set with her. She wanted me to find the success she had found and guided me to it! As I became a coach she showed me how to coach others & has guided me to all the success I have found today. I adore her and she has become one of my best friends!
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 is my addiction, kind of kidding, but seriously it is! Without Shakeology my cravings were off the charts and my energy was low. It fueled my body every step of the way. I will ALWAYS be drinnking it daily!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? Challenge groups. I can honestly say if I did not have a group of people holding me accountable, I may not have the success I do today. I believe whole heartedly in challenge groups & run at least 2 per month myself for my customers. They are key to helping people reach their goals. Under this new system - NO ONE falls through the cracks - I love that! Plus, they are simple to setup and run & my challengers also say the same things - everyone loves these groups!
