Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before starting Shakeology, I was exhausted, overweight, lazy, and on the verge of diabetes. I kept telling myself that I wouldn’t have any more McDonald’s burgers, but I kept going back for more. Milkshake after milkshake. Fry after fry. I was literally killing my body from the inside out.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
A Coach, Kathy Prohoroff, told me about the many benefits of Shakeology. Of course, I didn’t believe her, and I kept wanting to drink my sugar-filled protein shake, thinking it was enough for me. After months of research and not finding anything wrong with Shakeology, I decided to give it a try. My breaking point was when I was in my closet, and I couldn’t button up my size 16 dress pants without a muffin top. I was so scared of getting diabetes, and I knew I needed to regain control of my health. I needed to lose weight. Plus, being away from my fiancé, I wanted to be healthy for him.

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 getting my eating habits down. I was a junk food fanatic. I always made excuses for why I should eat junk. I was a busy college student, and studying for my law classes was hard enough. I had horrible sugar cravings. When I started Shakeology, however, I felt like a new person. My cravings decreased dramatically, and I had energy! I stopped drinking coffee, because I no longer needed that extra energy boost. I felt like I could accomplish anything.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that it was easy to follow, and drinking Shakeology every day. Shakeology was so convenient for me to have every breakfast. It kept me full throughout the morning.


Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have abs! I could not be more thrilled with my results. I am thrilled I have abs, but what I am most proud of is the fact that I regained my health. I am no longer on the verge of diabetes. I have energy. I am able to wake up at 4:20 AM every morning and exercise without a cup of coffee. I crave healthy food! I no longer want junk. I am stronger, not only physically, but mentally. Thank you, Beachbody, for creating a product without chemicals, and one that helped me regain my life back!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am healthier, fit, and more confident. I never eat sugar, processed foods, or artificial foods with chemicals. I exercise every day and drink Shakeology daily. I will never stop exercising, and I will never stop using Shakeology, as long as Beachbody keeps selling it. I will continue to share my progress with others around me, and help aid others in their fight against obesity. This is such a passion of mine that I try to be a walking inspiration to people by taking my own advice, and showing them that it is possible. Anyone can do anything that they put their mind to. I did, and I will never turn back to where I was before. I am happier than I have ever been, and will never look back.

How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I was able to be held accountable for exercising every day and for making sure that I ate healthy. I had support from others who had been going through the same struggles as me. It was nice to know that I wasn’t alone in my struggles and in my choice to lose weight. If I didn’t have the support of a Challenge Group, I probably would not have maintained my healthy lifestyle in the beginning of my journey. I am thankful for the support of those who were in my Challenge Groups.

How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
My upline sponsor, Kathy Prohoroff, is so wonderful! She convinced me to use Shakeology, and pushed me to exercise. I had so many questions for her about what program to try, and what I should eat during the program. She never once got tired of answering my numerous questions. She always supported me through all of my struggles. I thank her so much for giving me the opportunity to be in her Challenge Groups, and get me to where I am now. She still continues to support me to this day, and I am so grateful for her friendship.

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 helped reduce my cravings, and gave me energy from the many nutrients it provided me. I noticed a big difference in my energy levels. I am thankful to have found such a nutrient-dense product. There is nothing else on the market quite like Shakeology. I was able to completely cut out junk food, because Shakeology got rid of my cravings! I didn’t believe it at first, but now that I am taking it, I am a believer. Shakeology is not some magic diet pill, but a wonderful tool that aided me in my weight-loss goals and my healthy lifestyle. It is something that I will continue to use every day.

Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody supplement, nutritional product, or program (e.g. blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, etc.)?
Before doing Beachbody programs, I was pre-diabetic. I am now healthy, and currently do not have that health risk. I plan on continuing with my healthy eating and exercise habits to keep all of my vitals and numbers at a healthy level.
