Amanda: 21 Day Fix & Shakeology

My life has changed for the better. I have lost 70 pounds! I lost over 55 inches! I am so proud to have definition in my abs that I have never seen before! And I don't just mean after kids- EVER- even as a high school athlete! I feel strong each morning when I get up. My back never hurts as soon as I get out of bed. I can play with my three year old and chase her all over the park without getting winded. I can't even wear my old "skinny" clothes because even they are too big! I feel confident in everything I do. I feel empowered and strong, able to carry my baby and chase my three year old daughter. And she expects me to workout every morning- she watches me and mimics my movements and acts as my own cheerleader yelling, "you can do it, mommy!" She thinks exercising is WHAT you do. And now I am helping others to achieve their fitness goals through my own Beachbody business. I know that I am setting an example my daughter can be proud of, ending the trend of obesity! I love that I now have knowledge of what to eat and how much and when- I love that I've made a total lifestyle change, not just a gimmick.

I never want to lose sight of how miserable I was before I started this journey. Negative self-talk and lack of confidence was the norm for me. Aside from hating the way I looked and the way clothes fit me, I couldn't stand to be the center of attention. I knew I was missing out on so much because of this. Physically, I have lost 100 pounds and a total of 55.75 inches off of my body. BUT, what I have accomplished besides physical transformation is golden. I look back at the woman I used to be, and I don't even recognize her, and I am not even talking about the physical. Now, I and others SEE that my confidence and passion is present when I talk about the importance of health and fitness. My biggest problem was my blood pressure, due to me being so overweight. Obviously, Shakeology and the programs I have done have helped both of those. My blood pressure went down to 116/74 with just diet and exercise. No pills for this girl! Bam!

Crystal: The Master's Hammer & Chisel


Before starting with beachbody I was desperate. I had depression and anxiety. I was so tired of being fat! I tried every fad diet out there. I was trying to get my insurance to cover the gastric bypass. My BMI was 37.9, my cholesterol was high, I had sleep apnea. My doctor told me that I would have to be on the CPAP machine for 6 months and if that didn't help the sleep apnea then I could have the surgery. The greatest challenge I faced before starting beachbody was my mental health. I was so depressed. I would actually get an anxiety attack when I dressed up or put on makeup on and looked in the mirror. I wasn't always fat and I was constantly dwelling on my skinny pics and the way I used to look. so, when I looked in the mirror It was a reminder of who I wasn't. Beachbody helped me so much. Now when I look in the mirror I see the progress I've made in such a short period of time. I still have a little way to go before I get to where I want to be but I have confidence that I will get there. I'm not depressed anymore. I don't have to use the CPAP anymore. I sleep great. I have so much energy, I feel amazing, and sometimes my family has a hard time keeping up with me. I eat clean. I drink shakeology daily. I haven't been to a drive threw in almost a year. I don't miss it! I don't have indigestion, heartburn, gas or any other stomach issues for that matter. I have energy. I'm happy. Exercise is and always will be part of my daily routine. My clothes are to big instead of to small. I have confidence. I could go on for days. This is by far the best thing I've ever done for myself. It saved my life!
