In 2015 I made the decision to change my life. I joined a support group to help. That support group kept me accountable, but it was also the drive I have inside because I knew if I kept going down the road into obesity what awaited me there. Obesity is a problem and a huge concern of mine. I simply cannot ignore it. I read about it in the medical records for my day job as a litigation paralegal. If people would simply start living healthy, a huge part of their health issues would go away. Now, I understand not everything can be fought by living healthy. I have seen healthy people die of cancer and I have seen my own mother die of ALS - a fatal condition.
A few years ago I injured the right side of my lower back around the SI joint for the third time! I could not sit down for the pain was so bad! But now it rarely flares up. Why? I believe it's because I have a stronger core.
A few years ago I was unable to do a push-up. Last year I was able to do 20 on my toes for the first time in my life!
So many changes occur when choosing to live a healthy lifestyle. You start exposing yourself to other people doing the same thing and suddenly your life is different. My mental and physical transformations have been amazing since 2015!
I wanted to share someone else's story.
This is Rebecca:
For Rebecca, get healthy and fit wasn’t about hitting “a number.”
It was about the non-scale victories, like creating a healthy relationship with food, being able to go to the pool with confidence, and being proud of being herself.
Rebecca went from 145 pounds to 109 pounds using the complete Beachbody experience: She became a Team Beachbody Coach, joined Challenge Groups for accountability, and achieved her health and fitness goals with Beachbody On Demand programs, Shakeology, and Beachbody Performance supplements.
(Another non-scale victory? Just look at that smile!)
Rebecca’s Life, Before
My life before Beachbody looked nothing like it does right now. I lived off of McDonald’s, Taco Bell, pizza, and frozen meals. I had a very emotional relationship with food — I literally drank and ate my feelings.
I had tried so many ways of losing weight and they all left me feeling tired, deprived and made my relationship with food even worse.
I wanted to change but didn’t know how.
I had a friend at work who was doing 21 Day Fix and was successful with it, and I also followed an old friend from high school (my Team Beachbody Coach!) on Facebook who I always saw posting about it so I decided to try it. I thought, “What do I have to lose?”
I loved all of the programs for different reasons, but my favorite program is 80 Day Obsession.
It got me out of the plateau I had hit which led me to be very discouraged. The program taught me a new way of eating and to truly understand the concept of fueling my body.
80 Day Obsession was the first program I completed from start to finish without a cheat meal, and because of that I finally saw results I was looking for.
Challenge Groups are what I was most excited about when I first signed up. I love the sense of community, support, and accountability.
Shakeology is like a treat to me every day — I truly couldn’t continue to be this consistent without it. Beachbody Performance Energize is always a must; I couldn’t push through without it some days and Recover is like HEAVEN after a hard workout sesh.
Rebecca’s Life, After
I no longer drink every night. That alone is one of the things I’m most proud of.
I have a healthier relationship with everyone in my life. I can enjoy the little things like going to the pool, not having to change my outfit a million times because of how insecure I feel.
I get to LIVE instead of hiding behind alcohol and food. I am confident and proud to be myself.
Beachbody is honestly the best thing to ever happen to me. I thank God every day for the trainers, programs, and all involved in this company. I honestly don’t know where I would be without it. It saved me in every way that I needed to be saved.

My story is similar to Rebecca's. I too lost 35 pounds and it was the 80 Day Obsession program that changed so much for me! I lived off "healthy" frozen meals and would eat aimlessly after work in front of the TV. It's amazing how different my life is...
