“I Always Felt Amazing Afterwards”

“I Always Felt Amazing Afterwards”

Meet Bobi-Jean B. She lost 103 lbs in about 1 year and 8 months with a variety of Beachbody programs. She entered her results into The Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for March 5th!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?

Before starting Beachbody, I was literally a mess. I was very depressed, and hated myself and the way I looked. I would turn to food every time something went wrong, or I was just having a bad day. I hated going clothes shopping, because I had to shop mostly in the men’s section, since most women’s clothes didn’t fit. I could never get any of the girly dress up clothes, I always had to get the t-shirts, or hoodies, because that’s all that would fit me.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
One day I woke up and said today is the day I change for the better. I was talking to my friend about it and she was telling me about someone she knew who was doing a Beachbody program. I asked her to get me info on it, and I never turned back.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenged I faced before starting Beachbody was having the confidence to be able to do the programs, and believing in myself that I could succeed and lose the weight. I’ve seen so many people do it, but I honestly never thought that would be me. Beachbody helped me overcome this challenge by giving me an awesome Coach who was and is there for me every step of the way, holds me accountable, and motivates me every single day to be the best me that I can be. She showed me that its OK to fail, as long as you get right back up and push even harder the next time. For that I’ll be forever grateful to her, and to Beachbody.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
What I liked the most about INSANITY was how fast paced, and intense, it was. I always felt amazing afterwards; like I really accomplished something. It wasn’t an easy program, so everyday was a challenge, and I liked that. Shaun T just makes you want to push a little harder each day and give it your all.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I went from having no energy, sitting on the couch all day everyday, and eating fast food almost every single night, to having so much energy that half the time I don’t know what to do with. I’m not siting on the couch or watching tv, and cooking healthy meals that, before, I didn’t even know what “healthy” meant. When I started I weighed 225 lbs, and today I am down to 122. The achievement I’m most proud of is the fact that I never gave up, and even after 2 1/2 years, I still want to get up everyday and workout. I just don’t feel like me if I don’t.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has drastically changed for the better. From something as simple as going up the steps without being out of breath, to going on hikes with the family in the summer, instead of sitting in the house watching tv. I no longer have knee problems, or feet problems when I walk for a long amount of time, and I no longer have back pain. I sleep so much better, and since drinking Shakeology my hair and nails are so healthy and strong! Over all, I have never felt better.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?

My Group had a huge impact on my weight loss goals. Without seeing them post their daily workouts everyday, and their motivational posts, I really don’t think I would be where I am today. They made me want to workout everyday, and helped me through the tough days when I really didn’t feel like working out.

How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?

My Beachbody Coach is an amazing inspiration for me, and she has been a huge part of my weight loss journey. She has been there for me since day one. Any questions I had she always knew what to say. If I was ever in a funk, and didn’t want to workout, she always knew how to snap me out of it. She motivates me everyday to do my very best.

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 drink Shakeology everyday and the results have been amazing! I no longer crave junk food, and my energy level is through the roof! I go to the salon to get my hair cut and they can’t believe how healthy my hair is, and I know it’s from all the vitamins and super foods in Shakeology that I wasn’t ever getting before. Plus it helps that it tastes delicious!! My son fights me for it everyday.
