Tell us about your life before you got started…
I have been over weight my whole life, and I was sick of being made fun of and laughed at for being the fat girl. I was a competitive cheerleader all through my younger years, and being overweight held me back a lot with the skills. I couldn’t jump as high, dance as well, do the back flips, or move as quickly; so I was always put into the back of the line or formation, and that was never a good feeling. After I had my daughter, I was ready to make a change for not only me but also for her.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My daughter is the one who truly inspires me to keep going to keep myself healthy. I know I always want to be in the best shape for her in the long run so I know I’ll be able to keep up with her in whatever she decides to do. I took on Focus T25 and never looked back. My goal was to just finish the program and get the free t-shirt, but when I finished, it became more than that. I started to actually love what I was looking like! I knew from then on I wasn’t turning back.
What is the greatest challenge you faced?
In the middle of Focus T25, I left my daughter’s father, but that still didn’t stop me. It made me push harder. I knew then, I was all my daughter had. I had to be the best for her. I went on to finish 6 other programs by Beachbody, starting at 218 lbs, I have lost 73 lbs, finishing some programs more than once. It’s a process, and it changed my life forever both physically and mentally. I’m looking forward to continuing.
What programs did you use during your awesome fitness transformation?
I have done a variety of Beachbody fitness programs — Focus T25, P90X3 (twice), INSANITY MAX:30, Body Beast (three times), Hammer & Chisel, Country Heat, and most recently 22 Minute Hard Corps. It has a super easy nutrition plan and doesn’t make you guess on how to follow it! Making it super easy to get maximum results without having to work twice as hard.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
There were many times in my life that I wished I could fit into smaller jeans, or the two-piece bathing suits like all the other girls, and now I can — with confidence! It’s one of the most overwhelming feelings I’ve ever had. I do not own a single one-piece bathing suit anymore! I can finally run 5 miles with my dad. I can look in the mirror and love myself, and above all, I know I’ll be around for my daughter for the long haul. I have exceeded my goals by a long shot and intend to keep going.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life will forever be changed by Beachbody! It saved my life and my health in so many aspects. I feel amazing. I feel accomplished. I feel proud and mature. I will continue to do Beachbody programs and drink Shakeology as long as my body lets me! I went on to become a Coach with Beachbody, because I want to help people get the same life-changing experience that I got — one they will never forget.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
Participating in our Challenge Groups really helped me by checking in with everyone every day. Everyone was looking forward to your results so that really held you accountable to your program!
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She’s amazing! She’s super helpful and a huge motivator. She texts me every day to see how I’m doing with my programs and my business. If I have any questions, she doesn’t waste any time with getting them answered!
How did a Beachbody supplement, 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, or digestion/regularity?
Shakeology and the 3-Day Refresh really helped me by making me more regular, kicking a lot of bad nutritional habits, and giving me energy I haven’t had in months!2 I can finally stay up past 9 PM without crashing like a 5-year-old!
How did a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I tried the Performance Energize, and I loved it! I work out at 7 AM and I can tell you my eyes are barely open at that time. But after I drink a little Energize, I can take on anything!2
