LOST 90 LBS and 7 dress sizes in 1 year!
I have abs & my legs are so toned it's INSANE!!! Never in my life did I think it was possible for me to be in shape & finally I am! Thanks to Beachbody I was able to do it.
What Ashley T. won:
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * As far back as i can remember i was over weight but when i got pregnant with my son during my pregnancy i gained almost 50lbs i went from being over weight i weighed around 180lbs + and after had my son i weighed 220lbs+ so i was exremely over weight at first i didn't realize how bad i had gottan cause i had just had my son and i felt smaller than i had been in 9 months but then I saw a picture of myself that someone took at a BBQ i was in shock and in denial i asked my husband if i really looked like that and him being a good husband he said "No" but i knew It was bad i was wearing a size 17 Jeans and an XL or XXL shirts. Well after becoming depressed & hating the way i looked i decided instead of feeling this way that once my husband deployed i would start working out and get my Life back to not how it was before i had my son but to become the healthiest i had ever been in my life and to get to where i have always wanted to be I wanted to be able to LOVE my body instead of hating it
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * Well a few more pictures were taken at a few get togethers the Army held and i just couldnt believe the way i looked, I started feeling more and more depressed and hated the way I looked I even had people notice and they came to talk to me and the stuff they said didnt make me feel better at all it just made me feel even worse about myself. Well My husband was getting ready to deploy for a second time and a friend gave me P90X to try [it was a good workout but just not the one for me], So i decided that once my husband deployed that i would sign up with beachbody and start getting my body in shape and just become healthier all around! I wanted to get healthy for myself but also for my son I wanted to be able to keep up with him and enjoy playing with him instead of not being able to cause i wasnt in shape! I was tired of being "THE FAT GIRL" I had been that girl my whole life and I finally wanted to be known as JUST ASHLEY a Mom and Wife instead of getting judge for the way i looked!
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * loving myself i had very low confidence looked at the ground when i walked around i just wasn't comfortable in my skin and i was ashamed of how much i let myself go. but now beachbody has changed my life im the most outgoing i've ever been i dont worry about being judged i love the way i look and i no longer look at the ground i am very very comfortable in my skin!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * Short but Intense workout Loved that i was able to get my workout in while my son was taking his nap or I could get up before him in the morning and get it done! Also LOVE Shaun T. If it wasnt him doing Insanity i dont think i would of stuck with it he knows what to say when your about to give up and you are then able to push yourself to do a few more push-ups, Ski Abs, Ect ! You feel like he is rite there with you and he is routing for you to achive your goal! Everyday i do Insanity i feel as if i am working out with Shaun and that he is rite there with me pushing to my limit which i LOVE cause without that i wouldnt of pushed myself that hard!
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I started out weighing 220lbs [im 5'8] i was wearing a size 17 jeans! Now almost 9 months later I am almost 140lbs im wearing a size 3 [never in my life have i worn that size] I have abs & my Legs are so tone its INSANE!!! I am proud of everything i have achieved so far i have lost so much weight and finally have the body I have so badly wanted my whole LIFE since i was about 12 years old. I finally can get dressed and LOVE the way i Look im not self concious anymore, im not depressed anymore everything in my life is better cause if Insanity i would not be where i am today if it wasnt for Insanity i am SO PROUD of myself never in my life did i think it was possible for me to be in shape & Finally i am! A goal i had been trying to achieve my WHOLE life and Finally Thanks to Beachbody i was able to do it! Being able to stay with a workout for this long and eat healthy i just cant believe it but i am so HAPPY and PROUD of myself for what i achieved! Working out has become an addiction :)
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * In so many ways not only my health and body but my confidence. I'm just so much more confident and feel great being in my own skin. I always wished to have other girls bodies but now I have the body I've always wanted just didn't know back then that it was possible but it is and now I have the body i've always wanted I can finally say I Love my Body and i'm very proud of what I have accomplished thanks to beachbody!
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? I Did 2 Shakeology cleanses and I Lost 6lbs my first cleanse and 7lbs my second cleanse. It helped me break plateaus and get my weightloss journey back on track when i was stuck at a certian weight for awhile! Now I drink Shakeology every morning for breakfast one thing that really surprised me is that i've always had bad acne since i had my son but since i've been drinking shakeology it has gone away so i dont have to spend money on expensive creams anymore :)
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? SuperGym helped keep track of the workouts i was doing & then the goal tracker i LOVE seeing the % go up and seeing im getting closer and closer to my goal and I Love going back and looking at where i started and seeing where i am now helped keep me motivated! & also being able to post your results for others to see and help inspire them to keep it up and show them it is possible to reach your goal! I dont know how many times someone has told me that seeing my before and after pictures has helped them stick with Insanity and not give up or how they can relate to my before picture and cant wait to get to there own after picture! Greatest feeling in the world is when someone tells you that you helped keep them motivated and inspired and without being able to share and post my results that never would of been possible so not only has beachbody helped me but it helped me reach out to others to help them & keep others motivated to stick with there workout program :)
Did you achieve any other measureable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc...) Shakeology is the way I start my day! It gets me so focused and just pumped to start my day. I thought I got energy from Coffee but Shakeology gives me 10x more energy!
