I Had Tried Every Diet and Gimmick

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started 21 Day Fix, I had tried every diet and gimmick available! I was 225 lbs and trying to be a good employee, wife, and mother. But 225 lbs hurt. My back hurt. My knees hurt. I was uncomfortable physically, and mentally and ready for a change. The weight had come on over the years, and I had never lost all the “baby” weight.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
My baby wasn’t a baby anymore and it was time. I knew there were 2 paths for me to take:

1) Soon to be put on high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc medicines or…
2) Get healthy.

I decided to choose #2. I saw an infomercial about 21 Day Fix and ordered it. What did I have to lose at that point?

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenge I faced before Beachbody was just knowing what to do to get healthy and how to do it. I was always guessing at whether I was eating too much or too little. Beachbody made it easy. 21 Day Fix took the guess work out of what was good to eat and what was not so good. I didn’t have to think about how to work out and wonder around the gym confused.

What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I love the workouts that came with the 21 Day Fix. 30 minutes and you’re done. They were very hard at first and just as Autumn says, “It doesn’t get easier, you get stronger!”

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I have lost 75 lbs following Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix. I went from a size 18 to an 8. Most importantly, I feel better! I can now run a 10K, I have more energy, I need less sleep. I have a different outlook on life. Small victories have helped too, like being able to get up off the floor without help!

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
Since I have been with the Beachbody program, I feel happier, more confident and less tired all of the time. I have made a lot of new friends through the program and at the gym and in running clubs.

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?
Shakeology is the best thing I have ever added to my diet. When I read that people said their cravings went away, etc I was skeptical. But it’s absolutely true! It filled me up and took away the cravings. My skin looks better, I feel better overall, and I haven’t been sick in a year! I also have used Activit vitamins throughout the journey.
