Beachbody Challenge Success Story
It’s these stories that make up our business and career and that remind me daily of the importance of our mission and our work as Team Beachbody coaches. This Beachbody Challenge Success story will inspire you as you see firsthand how she lost over 100 lbs since starting her journey with Beachbody and using Beachbody on Demand and the Beachbody Performance line.
“Before my journey with Beachbody, I was an obese, 22-year-old physical therapy student. I was ashamed of my body and I self-sabotaged constantly. I was always the “fat kid of the family” and grew up with 2 siblings who were thin and athletic. I had sky-high cholesterol, triglycerides, blood pressure, and I was most likely borderline type 2 diabetic. I hated myself but I never had enough motivation or drive to commit myself to changing my body.
I got engaged in April of 2014. When I was home from school over Christmas break, I went dress shopping with family. Instead of being all I dreamt it would be, it turned out to be one of the worst days of my life. I went to a boutique that I had always wanted to get my dress from, and literally nothing fit. I even couldn’t get the biggest dress over my head. I sat in the dressing room with my mom and cried. I went to another bridal dress shop and without second-guessing, the lady brought me a stack of plus-size dresses. I could get them over my head and on my body, but made sure that all pictures that were taken were from the front because I couldn’t zip the back because I was too big. I looked in the mirror at myself, ashamed, unhappy and knew it was time for change.
Within the first month of T25 and Shakeology, I lost 10+ lbs. I had never lost 10 lbs. before in my life. That’s when I knew Beachbody was special. I saw results! As the weight came off, my friends and my family noticed. While receiving outside attention was great and motivating, it was how I saw myself and how I felt that truly kept me going. For the first time in my life, I didn’t hate myself because I saw results. Beachbody, my Coach, and self-motivation were all that I needed for success!
In less than 2 years. I’ve lost 105 lbs. thanks to Beachbody (and I’m not done!). My biggest achievement isn’t the pounds I’ve lost. It’s the confidence that I’ve gained!
