Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I felt tired all the time, and was embarrassed to have my picture taken.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
When I was turning 50, I had done INSANITY in 2012, lost 17 pounds, and felt pretty good. Then I became ill and was taking all sorts of meds, and gained it back and then some. My daughter got pregnant, and it freaked me out that I might end up old and obese, and unable to enjoy life with my grandchildren. That was it! I went on a 1200-calorie high-protein, high-fiber diet, did INSANITY and lifted weights, and lost 45 pounds. I have lost five more now, and am rockin’ my size six skinny jeans!

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
Well, the biggest challenge was all of the aches and pains in my joints. They aren’t gone, but my legs and shoulders are much stronger now. Also, whereas before I wore clothes to hide my body, now I want to show it off! I feel so good and so energetic! That’s why I became a Coach, because I want to tell everyone that it doesn’t matter how old or ill or out of shape you are, you can take control of your health. You can make changes for you that will make you feel better about every aspect of your life — physical, emotional, and spiritual! They are all connected! Thank you for making these amazing products!

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
The ability to do the workouts at home, at my convenience, and in a small space with no equipment. Shaun T is an excellent teacher and motivator! I would love to be in a video dripping with sweat, panting, and showing how we 53-year-old women have to modify, but can still do it! (LOL!)

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 45 pounds and 27 inches. I am proud of it all! But lately, I am just impressed by my increasing energy, stamina, muscle definition, and that I have an amazing story to tell!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am back to my extroverted, enthusiastic self! I am confident, energetic, and positive. I feel ready to face menopause and aging with the knowledge that I am starting from a place of good health and can sustain it for the long haul. I cheer everyone on, and tell them they are training for a marathon, not a sprint. It is a change of attitude and behavior. Mind over matter. It is about getting healthy, not dieting.

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?
I have just started Shakeology daily, and I look forward to it as my treat for the day!
