Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
As I entered into my post-change-of-life time and my 50s, I felt tired and rundown. I would think about my past and how active I was, but as I got older, I felt my strength decreasing. I would look at myself in the mirror and think, “Wow, I have sure let things go.” My clothes looked horrible on me, and I was going up in size and weight. My metabolism was nonexistent, and no matter how much I starved myself, I couldn’t lose weight. Come to find out, starving myself was the worst thing for me. I would sit in my chair and when I would get up, it would take me walking about 20 feet before I could totally stand up straight. My blood pressure was starting to climb as well, sometimes being in the 130s/80s. In my earlier days, it usually ran about 110/60s.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I am really paying attention to my body and how it feels. I can hardly go a day without drinking my Shakeology, and I love that I can eat and don’t feel like I am starving. I am building my confidence, and I am not afraid to put myself out there in the hopes of helping someone else achieve the same thing. I am doing so much more than I was before. I don’t have the aches and pains that I was having, and I feel so much stronger. I keep my appointment with myself and work out every day, except for rest days of course, and I have started paying more attention to my personal development. Becoming a Coach has also helped me stay accountable.
