Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before the Ultimate Reset, I had struggles with my nutrition. I would eat my daughter’s fruit roll ups, fruit snacks, and sneak snicker bars in my purse. I was wearing a body shaper and still had my tummy over my pants. I had started taking selfies because my entire body was just not fit like it used to be. I would sit on the couch and binge eat on the weekends, feeling sorry for myself, because I had a bad day. I was ashamed, frustrated, depressed, and once again did not like the person I saw in the mirror.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
April 4th, I started my Perfectly Imperfect Journey – The Ultimate Reset – of eating well and getting back on track. I wanted to nip this bad eating and nutrition in the bud. Summer was right around the corner and I needed a program that would get me back on track, eliminate the toxins in my body, help me to have a healthier relationship with food and get my waist back.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
My greatest challenge was all in my mind. I kept thinking that I had to do this or I would fail at so many other things in my life. I did get a bad cold because my body was trying to process the cleanse. But I was able to push through and think about all the people who were rooting me on. The Beachbody challenge group was sooo supportive and my accountability partners. I also depended on my Social Media friends as to give me the motivation to stay focused. I posted my journey every other day to keep them abreast of what was going on throughout my journey. It gave me the strength to keep moving forward no matter what and my Coach super supportive!
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
What I like about The Ultimate Reset was that it gave you quick and easy meals to follow throughout the day. It also gradually got me off meats and animal based products.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
Wow! I feel like a million dollars! I lost a total of 15.4 lbs and 7 inches on my waist. But, I now feel like I can conquer the world. I now know I can say no to the wrong foods and opt for something else instead. I feel lighter, more at ease, and soo proud of myself for seeing this program until the end.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
It has drastically changed. I feel like a new women and I’m able to help my team of coaches when it comes to starting a program so strict like this one. I have more clarity and motivation to change other people’s lives as well.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
The Challenge Group kept me motivated. I continuously showed up to the page no matter how bad I may have felt. I placed my meals in the team page for accountability and they were my greatest cheerleaders and success partners!
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
I had reached out to my Coach at my lowest moment. I felt like giving up and she told me that it was okay to feel that way, but I must keep going. She also talked to me about her experience with The Ultimate Reset.
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?
The supplements really detoxed my body. There were days when I felt sluggish, but there were days I felt full of energy. At the end of The Reset I felt like a million dollars. I felt rested, clear, and energetic.
