Meet Ashley S.. She lost 22 lbs with 21 Day Fix. She entered her results into The Beachbody Challenge, and won the $500 Daily Prize for April 24th!
Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body?
Before I started 21 Day Fix I was was upset with myself every time I looked in the mirror. I no longer felt sexy, my clothes never looked right, and my self-esteem was starting to really suffer.
What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey?
I had seen great results from others doing 21 Day Fix and found myself close to ordering the program numerous times. It wasn’t until my best friend started the program, and sent me pictures of her outstanding daily results, that I decided I wanted in. I couldn’t wait to have the results and feel the way she did.
What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge?
The greatest challenges I suffered before 21 Day Fix were eating the proper portions, and sticking to a fitness plan. I was already making healthier choices with the types of foods I ate, but the containers helped me plan a more balanced day. I was able to easily scale back on some unhealthy carbs, and ensure I was getting adequate fruits and vegetables every single day. The program made it so simple. I didn’t have to spend so much of my day searching for a foods nutritional information and calculating calories. I had a platform of great food choices, and just had to pick what was right for me that day. It was so helpful not having food on my mind all day long. As for the fitness aspect, I absolutely love that the workout is different every day of the week, and only 30 minutes. I don’t get bored with them, and they keep my body guessing, resulting in more inches lost and greater definition.
What in particular did you like about the program you chose?
My absolute favorite part of the program is that you get visible results so fast. It’s beyond motivational to see your body getting healthier and makes you want to keep going and going. Plus, the program actually teaches you a healthy lifestyle. It’s not a quick fix with a product that you finish and then are lost on how to change your lifestyle. 21 Day Fix teaches you how to be healthy for the rest of your life.
Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program. Which achievements are you proud of?
I lost 22 lbs and 18 inches with 21 Day Fix and could not be happier! I’m most proud of how I stayed committed and didn’t cheat myself. Dedication definitely paid off. I love my shrinking waist, slimmer back, and more feminine clavicle.
How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program?
I have a whole new perspective on eating well since completing 21 Day Fix. Right after starting I dove into literature on the science of nutrition and have learned so much about what processes happen within my body when I eat certain foods. My collection of delicious and healthy recipes is growing all the time and I honestly feel like this program has set me on the healthy path for life.
How did participating in a Challenge Group help you reach your goals? How did your group support you and keep you accountable?
I run a Challenge Group with my best friend, Leah Krabbenhoft, and it really helps to hold us accountable. Knowing that other people will see our results is so motivating.
How did your Team Beachbody® Coach support you on your journey?
My Coach was an absolutely amazing support. She motivated me to start, suggested great books for me to read, and provided much appreciated positive feedback and encouragement. We shared pictures of our meals throughout the entire program and got to celebrate each accomplishment we made along the way. The best moment we shared was the day our pants were too big!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program (such as Shakeology® or Beachbody Ultimate Reset®) support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits you gained? Did you see benefits to your energy, sleep, mood/mental clarity, digestion/regularity?
Shakeology truly helps reduce my cravings for chocolate and unhealthy carbs. I also love that I don’t have to take vitamins, and it covers one of my 6 meals!
How did a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program affect any existing health conditions you have?
I don’t know if Shakeology is the only culprit, but I reduced my triglycerides, raised my HDL, got off of anxiety medication, and rid my cervix of precancerous cells!
Did you achieve any other measurable improvements with a Beachbody Supplement or Nutritional Product or Program? (e.g. Blood Pressure, Blood Sugar, triglycerides, etc…)
My triglycerides went from over 200 to only 90!
