Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? * Before Beachbody I was pretty sendentary. I was diagnosed with Lupus and Fibromyalgia and have osteoarthritis in my knees and upper back, and two herniated discs (C5/6). I was in so much pain, so overweight, and didn't see any light at the end of the tunnel. Our family followed my husband to a new city for a new job, and that added to the depression. I felt alone, very sick, and disgusted with the condition of my health and body.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? * I had a child at the age of 28 and gave him an amazing childhood. I had another boy at the age of 40, and his childhood was nothing in comparison to my first child. It was not fair to my little man. I felt obligated to give him a good childhood and teach him to be active and involved and healthy. I had seen the Insanity infomercial many times, and on this one very depressing night, while eating ice cream very late in the evening, it just hit me like a ton of bricks....I had to do something and I had to do it NOW or truly become paralyzed by the awful diseases of Lupus an Fibromyalgia.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? * My greatest challenge was the pain that I was in. For those who do not suffer from these diseases, it's just hard ot understand the level of constant pain. Of course, the constant pain leads to depression, and that in itself is a vicious cycle. I was out of shape, overweight, and did not think I could survive a program so intense as Insanity. I gave it a shot, and although it almost killed me in the first couple of weeks, I kept pushing through, and I finished it....I finished my very first Beachbody program!!! And since then I have completed a total of two rounds of Insanity, Turbo Fire, P90X, and am currently working on Chalean Extreme. I'm hooked. Beachbody and it's support and the amazing idea of "coaching" has truly helped me overcome my doubts and fears!!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose? * I have enjoyed ALL the programs I have completed. They each have targeted different areas of my physical fitness and body, and I love that I can switch them around or even create hybrid schedules with all of the amazing programs.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of? * I have achieved a total of 35 pounds and a large number of inches, BUT the achievement I am most proud of is that I feel and certainly AM healthier than I was when I started. I can never get rid of the Lupus or the Fibromyalgia, but they are under control, and I'm living a totally normal life.....a normal, active, happy, fit life!!
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * I am healthier, fitter, sexier :o), and I am able to now give my little man the childhood he deserves and desired. My ongoing transformation with Beachbody also inspsires others to follow along with me, and that in itself is a huge plus.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? I am part of my coach's challenge group, and I have a group going right now. These groups keep me accountable by knowing that I will continue to inspire others by staying on track myself. I have a lady in my group who is really struggling and who has a very long way to go, but she's doing it. Seeing her posts, despite of how hard it is for her barely starting out, is a great motivational factor for me as well.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? My coach, Lori Lowe Burns, is awesome! She has been there ever step of the way, from when she first signed me on, throughe every program I've done, through every question I have had, and as even become a personal friend who I can talk to anytime. I wish everyone had such an awesome coach as I have.....inspiration for me to be a great coach as well!
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 helped get my diet/nutritional goals under control. I was not one to eat breakfast because I was always in such a hurry in the mornings, but being able to mix up my healthy shake and take it with me out the door has been a huge benefit to me. I have my healthiest meal of the day to start my day out, and that sets the tone for me every single day.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? I enjoy the WOWY gym, and I especially enjoy the benefits of all the different coach pages, blogs, etc. There is not one question or problem I have had that has gone unanswered or unsolved. There is so much support and involvement in the Beachbody community. It is definitely a major factor in why people succeed with Beachbody.
