Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
After having two kids, my body had changed drastically. I was feeling unconformable in my own skin, and I was always so negative about my appearance. I would wear baggy clothes so I didn’t have to show how much I had let myself go. I didn’t want others to see the weight I had gained. I was upset with where I had let my body go, but I was more upset of who my kids would be looking up to. Someone that was unhappy and unhealthy with how she looked and felt. I didn’t want to be a mother that had no energy to play with them.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I realized that I needed to change for my kids. They need a happy and healthy mother. I started following other moms on Facebook and Instagram; they inspired me. The transformation of their bodies was amazing, but more importantly their lifestyle changes. I started to believe that I could lose the weight too. I was capable of pushing fears aside and proving that I had what it takes to make a change.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The first couple workouts I would think “I cant do this.” I wanted to give up. I would get home from work and think I don’t have time to push play, but I worked it into my schedule. I planned my day to always get a workout in. I realized that it’s only 30 minutes. I have time. I’m so grateful that Beachbody created a workout that I can do at home and receive results.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that I am able to do the workouts at home when its convenient for me, usually when my kids are sleeping. This made losing weight accessible to me.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
My goal was to finish the full program without missing a workout, and I did. I’m most proud of that. My results show but I’m happy that my mind didn’t create an excuse on why I couldn’t work out.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy! I’m able to work full time, be a mother, wife, and still get workouts in. I have energy to tackle the day. I am forever thankful for that. I can keep up with my kids and not be a tired cranky mother.
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 love Shakeology. The energy it gives me is amazing! I will never go another day without drinking it. It’s a superfood and it’s amazing. I sleep better, I have more energy throughout the day. I’m happier and healthier. It makes the perfect breakfast on-the-go.2
