As I look back on my journey of yo-yo dieting, trying to find every way imaginable to lose weight, diet pills, quick fixes and broken promises. I am truly thankful for Team Beachbody. Before joining Team Beachbody I was on a health & wellness journey. This journey has spanned well over 15 years, but where did it get me exactly? Nowhere… can you relate? Have you had that gym membership only to find yourself wasting that money month after month? I tell you, I have been a member of Bally’s Total Fitness, I used to drag my sister to Lucille Roberts because I didn’t want to go by myself and God forbid I exercise in the presence of men. I felt that Lucille Roberts was safe because it was all women. I loved doing their step aerobics. Am I showing my age here?? Anyhow, that didn’t last long, because as soon as the weather started to get a little chilly and the sun went down a little earlier, I found myself shying away from traveling to the gym and snuggling up with a bowl of ice cream and cookies while the heat blasted and my television program kept me entertained. Besides joining Lucille Roberts twice… yes twice, I have joined many other small gyms in my neighborhood including Curves and the local recreation center, only to see that money go to waste and watch my waist line continue to increase. Now what comes along with not holding up your side of the bargain to get to that gym? Guilt! I would feel so guilty. I would tell myself “now you know you should go to the gym”, but the laziness and the tiredness from working all day would literally take over my actions and as I would try to drag myself there every now and then, eventually I stopped going altogether. I could have probably been a very rich woman by now if I would have put all that money spent into a gym membership into an IRA or 401k, instead I wasted a lot of money and a lot of time. Does this sound familiar? Do you have that gym membership with the best intentions of getting there? I understand. Do you have your salads and your baby carrots in your lunch bag all to realize that by the end of the day, not only are you exhausted but you are starving?!? Trust me, I’ve been there. But I am here to let you know that you don’t have to waste your money on a gym membership anymore, you don’t have to starve because you’ve been munching on carrots and salad all day. First of all not getting enough nutrition is the number one reason for fatigue and secondly getting to the gym is getting harder and harder for busy folks like us. Let me ask you a question. If I could show you a better way to feed your body, get that nutrition your body is craving and have you get the best exercise to get your body fit and trim in only a few minutes a day without having to leave your house how would that sound? I know it sounds too good to be true right? I thought the same thing when my husband had this small package shipped to our house. I was really annoyed because I was so tired of all the hype surrounding weight loss things that just DID NOT WORK! However, what was in this package was so different than anything I had ever done before in my life. I told you I was a member of just about every gym out there but this program brought the gym to me without any weights or heavy equipment, none of that. All I needed was a mat and a DVD player it was brilliant. Oh, by the way, I was not new to working out at home. I was a huge fan of Billy Blank’s TaeBo but that kept my weight at such a plateau. I had even purchased his boot-camp but… nothing. So, as you can see, I was really on a quest for a program that would help me lose weight, tone my stomach, thighs, arms, increase my endurance and give me that energy I needed throughout the day. I found it in Shaun T’s Insanity. That’s what was in that box!! Insanity from what I know now is one of the toughest workouts in the Team Beachbody collection but I am here to tell you that if you want insane results in only 30 days, DO IT!! Before starting Insanity, I had taken up running (another attempt to lose weight and get healthy). I did lose weight. But running literally makes you skin and bones. If you are not building muscle and getting that necessary nutrition, running can run your body into the ground. I became a lover of running however, I found myself becoming very thin, frail and even sickly. I guess the calories I was burning with running was more than I was taking in and my body was not responding well to that at all. I was feeling more tired than usual and was getting cramps in my stomach frequently. I thought I was doing everything right, I was following a training guide, a nutrition guide, this guide and that guide but something just wasn’t right, nothing worked! So, I decided to take a small break from running. During this time my husband was following the Insanity program to the max, he was looking GOOD! I started to get a little jealous… so one day when he was out, I decided to pop that DVD into our player and I literally got the workout I had never had before. I exercised with the DVD everyday, I felt my endurance increase, my aching knees (oh, I forgot to mention that while running my knees used to hurt like CRAZY!) started feeling better and I felt stronger, more alert and I started to gain muscle. Everyone around me started to notice,but I never mentioned that this was what I was doing, they all thought it was from running. I am here to tell you today that the biggest mistake you can ever make is to keep something great to yourself. I wish I would have told everyone because these products are absolutely amazing!! OK, so that was a little over 2 years ago. I had no idea what Team Beachbody was, here I am working in a classroom with the Dept. of Education, all the while trying to stay fit and healthy just like everyone else in the world right? I am doing my Insanity, because of it I get back into my running feeling great (as a matter of fact I am running my first marathon this year), losing weight, gaining muscle and just enjoying feeling healthy for once in my life. Fast forward to today. No more High Blood Pressure. No more Tiredness. No more Headaches. No more PMS Symptoms. No more Mood Swings. No more Cravings. I feel so much more in control of my life. I am about to step away from my full-time job to fully pursue my passion of helping others lose weight and get healthy all because of the great success I have had with these products. I have since added Shakeology to my diet which is by far THE HEALTHIEST MEAL OF THE DAY. I am finally at my ideal weight, my energy is through the roof, my attitude about myself has changed, my relationships have gotten stronger and I am an all around better person. I say all that to say this. You can lose that weight you so desperately have been trying to lose. Yes it took me 15 years… why? Because I didn’t know then what I know now. Two years ago when I was introduced to the Team Beachbody products I had no idea what it would do for my health, my weight, my family’s health and their weight. My children love the Shakeology, we exercise together, it has literally brought us closer as a family. My sister and brother-in-law use the products, my best friends use the products. We have all seen dramatic results from using these products and you can too. Don’t wait any longer, if you have been trying and struggling, here is your answer. You will get the nutrition your body needs and deserve and get the exercise your body needs and deserves. As you age your body naturally needs more attention. Give it the attention it craves.
