Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I am a very active person but after having an 8600-lb. truck fall on my left arm and hand crushing it, I was unable to stay active for eight months.* I continued to eat the same amount but was not exercising, so I gained a lot of weight. When my surgeon OK-ed me for exercise, I started back doing P90X programs and went from 207 lbs. in March 2015 to today’s 157 lbs. I have always been extremely self-conscious of my body, and I never feel that I can take my shirt off at the beach because I don’t look good enough. But now I am starting to feel comfortable not wearing a shirt around other people.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
After having a 8600-lb. truck fall on my left arm and hand crushing it, I was unable to stay active for eight months and wanted to get back in shape.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody help you overcome that challenge?
I have always been extremely self-conscious of my body, and I never feel that I can take my shirt off at the beach or in front of people, because I was afraid of what they would think. This program has given me the tools that I need to look and feel healthy and feel better about my body. Beachbody has given me a way to track my progress, and it has motivated me to push harder every day to achieve my goals.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I had no reason why I could not take 30 minutes to exercise a day. Also, I liked that I was able to get a great workout in 30 minutes that left me feeling it but always wanting more from myself.
