According to the numbers on the scale, Jessica Farrell didn’t change at all. She weighs the same at the end of 8 weeks as she did on day 1. But, her waist-whittling transformation is clear as day. With 22 Minute Hard Corps, she burned off 32 inches from all over her body! We’re not saying you should throw your scale out the window, but can we get a whoot whoot for non-scale victories? Here’s the story she shared with the Beachbody Challenge contest.
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
I was a newlywed who, during my engagement, put on about 35–40 pounds. I could barely walk up the stairs without getting winded. During my engagement, I had to buy three different-sized wedding dresses because my weight kept going up.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
I loved that 22 Minute Hard Corps was military style; I am a Marine Corps veteran. Beachbody provided simple workouts, a simple nutrition plan, and Shakeology to help me shed inches off my waist and hips.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost over 32 inches all over my body! I can fit into a size 10 after having a muffin top in a size 14. It’s not all about the numbers though, because I am most proud of the fact that I feel and look healthier.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have more energy to do just about anything. I just finished my first 5K and sprinted the last 100 yards. I feel outstanding and have a new lease on life. I cannot wait to have a fit pregnancy within the next year or so. I look forward to chasing after a little one and being able to still complete chores around the house.
How did your Team Beachbody Coach support you on your journey?
She gave me advice and confidence through that period more than anyone else had. She used her resources, even though she was in Canada and I was in the US, to help me get the answers I needed. She also encouraged me to Coach others, so I became a Coach and had 2 Success Points in the first week of signing up. She motivated me to get my husband on the same program, and now he is experiencing some similar results.
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 me get regular, as weird and gross as that sounds. It also helped, from what my husband says, to get an all-over glow in my skin. It almost instantly helped me lose weight, gain more energy, and satisfy cravings for fast food. I used to not be able to pass some places without wanting something. Now, I drive by, look, and feel full and satisfied.2
