Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I found Beachbody, I had lost a lot of weight but did it in an unhealthy way, with yo-yo dieting and the same workouts day after day. Within three years, I lost a total of 130 pounds with gaining, losing, gaining, and finally losing it all again. I had my first baby in 2011, and this is when I started my journey. By the time I got pregnant a second time, I was starting the yo-yo again. I was falling back into old habits during my pregnancy, and watching my body transform into something I wasn’t proud of. After gaining 57 pounds during my pregnancy, and being over 200 pounds again, I had enough. I started walking toward the end of my pregnancy, and looking for ways that I could get that scale down again to be the person I used to be. Little did I know that with Beachbody, I wouldn’t become that person; I would become a better person, physically and mentally!

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My biggest inspiration is my kids. I have two daughters who both have medical issues that we have been dealing with since each of them was born. I asked myself: “How can I be this sluggish, unhealthy, unhappy, and overweight person, and be the best mom for my kids or my family?” They needed a mom that can do things with them, not just sit there watching them play while a million thoughts run through her head. I needed to show them how to eat healthy, how fun exercising can be, and that being outside is so much better than vegging in front of the TV. Being a mom is my first job, and that includes showing them the right way in life and not letting them become another statistic of overweight, unhealthy children.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
The biggest challenge I faced was more mental than physical for me. I had to strengthen my mind first to become successful in my programs and lifestyle change. I had to start loving my body, stop worrying what others thought about me, and start focusing on what makes me happy. That’s just what I did. I cut out those people that let me down or brought me down. I started reading personal development books and educating myself on how to be happy. I just did what it took each day as it came, and kept pushing. I stayed dedicated to my programs (never missing a day), kept up with my eating, and had myself believe that I can do this. So I believed: dedicate, succeed, and conquer!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I have done a lot of programs in the last 13 months. PiYo, Body Beast, INSANITY MAX:30, a PiYo/T25 hybrid, 21 Day Fix EXTREME, INSANITY, and now P90X3. I think for me what I like most about PiYo is that it challenges my mind and body. I can push through each workout knowing that I’m working hard and doing the best I can do. I also like that it fits into my schedule of being a busy mom and Beachbody LIVE Instructor. I can fit those 30-minute workouts into my schedule, and know that I can get them done.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
At first, it was that scale going down and seeing that fat melt off my body. But now the achievement that I’m most proud of is the muscle tone I’m building! Gaining weight in muscle, and not in fat, is one of the greatest feelings. Watching your body transform into a strong, healthy, and mindful thing is something a lot of people don’t realize about health and fitness. Something that I didn’t know either until I met Beachbody and started this journey.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
My life has done a complete 180 from what it used to be, and I’m a completely different person than I was 13 months ago. If you would have told me when I started with Beachbody that I would have confidence, love my body, be the best mom and wife I could be, do programs like INSANITY, or even get up in front of a group of people and teach PiYo LIVE classes, I would have told you that you’re crazy, and that I could never do something like that. I was a mom of two who was worried all the time and had anxiety issues. I was stressed out, tired, and unhealthy. I had no confidence, and could never complete a hard program like INSANITY, or ever, ever get up in front of people and teach. But I did all of that, because of Beachbody, the support I have, my confidence, and the mindset I have set for myself. It’s incredible how one amazing thing can turn your whole life a complete 180 for the common good of your health and mind.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I did a few Challenge Groups, and loved every one of them. They pushed me to become the person that I wanted to be. Posting every day kept me on track. Knowing that others were looking out for me and cheering me on helped me through those hard days as well as good days. Being a part of something like a Challenge Group showed me that I can and will do this. Digging Deep inside to find the true me and let it shine.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
Amy has been an amazing Coach! She has helped me find everything I have been looking for since I started my journey over four years ago. Her mindset on life, fitness, and health is very similar to what I wanted and I have now. Having her as my Coach has brought out so many different aspects in myself that I couldn’t even believe I had in me. I learned to believing in myself, focus on the true person I am, not let what others think affect me, learn about the right foods to fuel my body, never miss a day of workouts, push myself, and keep setting higher goals.

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 has transformed my life as well. It has given me the energy I needed, helped with all those nasty cravings, helped my regularity, helped with the weight loss in the beginning, and most of all, it’s my favorite part of my day! I can’t go without E&E during a workout; there is just no way. It has helped me stay more focused than ever, helped my mind push my body to its max, and helped build those muscles that are coming in.
