Andy A.
LOST 206 LBS and 22 pants sizes in 2 years
Wow, I've lost over 200 lbs. I'm so proud of what I've accomplished. Every time I see my before and after, it motivates me to be better. Nothing makes me prouder than to be the result of my own efforts, and thanks to Beachbody, I've been able to do it.

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?* When I was young, I loved sports and I took part in sporting activities, but then I let myself go and as time went by, I ignored the fact that I was gaining weight. As time passed, I reached such a heavy weight that it was hard to do any physical activity. Sitting was a challenge. I felt bad because I didn't know if the chair would break, and I'd fall, or if could actually fit in the chair I was going to sit on. I had to buy a large Van (or truck), and it was embarrassing to take it in to the shop because the seat was always broken. It got to the point where I could only buy clothes in one store in Puerto Rico, and it was super expensive. I felt bad about myself, I didn't like people looking at me, and although I've always been a guy with great self-esteem, I was beginning to enter a depression stage. I thought that I wouldn't be able to find the solution to all this.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?* I had some health complications. I had bad blood circulation in my left leg. I sat down with my doctor, who's also my friend, and he told me what he had said to me many times before. I said, "Sepulveda, I have a lot of pain in my leg and back, I get so many cramps that I can't get out of bed." He got very upset, with good reason, and told me, "I have already told you that the problem is your weight. Andy, you weigh more than 450lbs. I want to help you, but you don't want to help yourself. If you come here and tell me you don't feel well, then you go home and do what you want, I can't help you. There is nothing to talk about. You are always welcomed but until you don't do something, don't come here to ask me how we can solve your health problems." That scolding from someone that is like part of my family was what motivated me to begin my transformation, and to want to be a healthier person for the rest of my life.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?* My biggest obstacle was that it was hard to move due to the bad blood circulation in my legs. I got tired just going up a few steps, and I had a hard time avoiding temptations. I worked at an office where most of the time I was tempted by the presents my visitors took for me. And most of the time those presents were sweets and fried foods. I think they thought that they should bring me food in order to please me. I used to spend long hours without eating, and then when I had time to eat, I'd eat anything I could find and in large portions. Beachbody helped me to begin to change the way I eat, and with Shakeology, I was able get rid of the temptation to foods that aren't good for my body. It gives me energy and helps me control the way I eat.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?* What I like about Insanity is the way it works with your entire body with one program. The way it gets you in shape at the level of an athlete, and you always want to do it better. It's a program that challenges you, and every time you set goals, it helps you achieve them. The dynamic and the way the program explains things and the way it always tells you that the more tired you are, that's when you have to give more. That's why I love Insanity, because it shows you how your brain my be telling you that you can't do more, but Shaun T tell you to work harder, that you can do more.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?* Wow, I've lost over 200 lbs. I'm so proud of what I've accomplished. Every time I see my before and after, it motivates me to be better. Nothing make me prouder than to be the result of my own efforts, and thanks to Beachbody, I've been able to do it. How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? * When I reached size 62 pants it was very hard to find clothing. Now I can buy the pants that I had always wanted. I can sit on a chair without being scared that I won't be able to fit, or that the chair is going to break. Now I can go up any stairs at a good pace, and if I want to run up those stairs, I can do it. I don't spend money fixing my car's seat, and I can drive any car. I don't have to buy a new mattress every year, I sleep comfortably, I don't wake up with cramps or back pain. It feels great that when people that haven't seen me in a while, pass right by me and don't recognize me. It's thrilling to see people's expressions when I tell them I'm Andy. My life has changed completely, and it's great to feel this way. That's why I'm always going to be part of Beachbody.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?* Cuando era Talla 62 de pantalón era difícil conseguir ropa, ahora me puedo comprar el pantalón que yo quiera, me puedo sentar sin miedo a que no voy a entrar o a que voy a romper la silla, ahora subo cualquier escalera a un paso cómodo y si quiero subirlas corriendo lo puedo hacer. Ya no gasto dinero arreglando el asiento de mi auto y me puedo montar en cualquier auto, ya no tengo que comprar un mattress nuevo cada año, duermo cómodo, no me levanto con calambres ni dolores de espalda. Se siente bien que la gente que no te ven hace tiempo te pasen por el lado y no te reconocen, es emocionante la cara ver la expresiones que hacen cuando les digo si soy Andy. En fin mi vida a cambiado por completo y es espectacular sentirse así por esa razón siempre voy a pertenecer a Beachbody.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable? * Mi Coach Hiram Santisteban es una de las personas que me mantiene inspirado, el es un ejemplo de fuerza de voluntad, nada es imposible y mi coach me lo ha demostrado, el no esta en el mismo país que yo y sin embargo me mantiene motivado y siempre esta pendiente de mi. Cuando comencé con Beachbody no quería entrar a ser Coach y solo quería el apoyo para hacer los ejercicios y saber que tenia que consumir y como usar la batida. El fue el que me impulso para mi reto y el que me enseño el camino para ser parte de Beachbody.

My Coach Hiram Santisteban is one of the people inspires me. He is an example of willpower. Nothing is impossible, and my coach has proven that. He doesn't live in my country, and still he keeps me motivated and is always checking up on me. When I started with Beachbody, I didn't want to be a Coach. I just wanted the support to be able to do the exercises, to know what I had to eat and how to do the shake. He pushed me to reach my goal, and he showed me the way to be part of Beachbody.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey? Hiram writes to me and send me information to help me reach my goals. He calls me, and always shares my goals with others, as well as my accomplishments, and that keeps me motivated. He explains how to work the Beachbody business, and the most important thing is that he's always willing to help me, and anyone else that wants to change their health and their body. I think he's one of the best Coaches and an example to follow.
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 super food. It takes away my anxiety, it's super delicious, it give me energy and takes away my cravings. E&E us the best. It give me energy, and the extra push I need to do each workout. Activit is one of the best vitamins that I've tried, and I can't forget Results & Recovery, my secrete weapon after any workout. It helps to rebuild my muscles faster and makes me feel so much better.
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have? All the Beachbody supplements that I take have worked great for me. They make me feels so much better.
Did you achieve any other measureable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc...) My high blood pressure is lower, and my blood circulation has greatly improved. What tips or tools did you find most useful? What made them so instrumental?
