Obese Mom 80 Day Obsession


I am so proud of my friend Cheris who has just finished our 80 Day Obsession test group and lost 35 lbs.  She also lost a ton of inches all around her body and is feeling happier and more confident knowing that she can do hard things and be an example for her kids.  She recently became a Team Beachbody coach on our team to share encouragement and help other women like her find their self love and work on their health and fitness so that they can do the things that they want to do with their kids.  She sent me over the blog post she wrote called Obese mom 80 Day Obsession and I was moved by what she shared and so I wanted to share it with you.

“It is interesting to think that just a few short months ago I was the heaviest I had ever been and disappointed in myself for giving up and gaining so much weight. I knew what I needed to do, I just didn’t think I had the motivation to workout every day and I didn’t think I was ready because I have a busy work schedule, am currently taking college classes, have 3 kids to take care of, and chores and other responsibilities. I had these excuses and more that kept me from making the commitment to exercise every day. After years of putting it off, I finally made a decision and in making that specific decision, I found the determination through wanting more out of life.

I felt like there was a lot that I was missing out on…. like hiking and family adventures because I physically didn’t have the strength. I wanted to show my kids that health is a priority, I want to be an inspiration to others that feel like there was no way they could make positive changes, feeling comfortable in my own skin and being proud of myself— those were all things that I had not experienced in a long time and I missed it!

I have ALWAYS loved swimming and my kids are the same way. I was on the swim team in high school, was a lifeguard and taught swimming lessons, and I love to swim! My kids beg to go and we just don’t go as often because I had been so uncomfortable in a swimsuit! We were missing out on one of our favorite things! And it was no one’s fault but my own.

I finally took the leap and started Beachbody workouts and then committed to the 80-day Obsession. Starting out, there were many moves that I could not do, but I tried my best and found that later on in the program I could do MORE and MORE! Seeing myself get stronger is the most empowering feeling ever! Proving to myself that I am capable of anything I set my mind to is a powerful message that I have learned! Realizing that is is never too late to restart and become better and stronger!

I find that because I made this long-term commitment to myself, each day I am feeling more self-love, more confidence and finally feeling stronger. I still have a long way to go, but getting back on track feels amazing and it makes it even more fun when others come to me for help and they do it with me! When you are ready, be sure to reach out to me! Support is key!

This is also an example of how vegan is not a diet. I have been vegan for over 2 years and actually GAINED weight! There are plenty of vegan junk foods! Haha! It is eating the RIGHT healthy foods that matters!”
