I have struggled with my weight my whole life and have fluctuated greatly, depending on what was going on and how busy I was. I’ve tried strict 1200-1500 calorie diets, worked out every single day with no rest, taken various “magic” pills, done Weight Watchers twice (and quit), joined a gym multiple times (and quit), and other various methods that definitely didn’t work.
Beachbody has given me workout and nutrition solutions that don’t make me bored and keep me motivated to reach my goals. I did the original Power90 back in 2006 and had great success. In early 2014 I was reintroduced to the products and it was the change I needed! I have completed multiple rounds of 21 Day Fix and 21 Day Fix Extreme (both the originals and Real Time versions), and at least one round of Focus T25 Alpha/Beta/Gamma, Hammer & Chisel, Core de Force, Shift Shop, Clean Week, 80 Day Obsession, Shaun Week, Transform: 20, Liift4, Morning Meltdown 100, and 6 Weeks of the Work. I completed a TurboFire/PiYo hybrid while cross-training for my first half marathon, have dabbled in Body Beast, Insanity Max 30, Cize, Country Heat, 22 Minute Hard Corps, and YouV2. I have also now completed five half marathons (PR – 2:01:46) and ran my first marathon November 2017! I am a certified Country Heat Live instructor and Ultimate Portion Fix Master Coach. I became a Beachbody Coach in March of 2014 and really enjoy helping others find healthy success!
I started my journey close to the 220 mark (though I’m not sure what my heaviest weight was since I didn’t weigh myself often). I easily achieved my first goal of 200 pounds, and eventually achieved just below 165 right after my first year, which was the lowest weight I’d been since high school (the lowest being 178 when I moved to VA in 2007). I was 145 in high school, but I feel that may be unrealistic with body changes and my age. I have no real goal weight right now…as long as I’m happy, healthy, and have enough endurance to get my through my daily/weekly activities, and can complete my weekly running goals. I am currently working toward running a race in all 50 states!
