Daily Success 2/23/2013 – I’ve tightened and toned my mommy areas!


I have never enjoyed working out. But when I was pregnant with my second child, I was diagnosed with Gestational Diabetes. I held to a strict diet, but once I was cleared for the diabetes after my child was delivered, I fell back into some terrible eating habits. Fast food, sweets, soda!

I totally let go— until I realized that I could end up developing diabetes again, for good. So I began drinking Shakeology. What a treat! From my first sip, I was in love. Shakeology helped me shed the pounds and gave me ENERGY! I used that energy to do Rockin’ Body because I love to dance. Sean T did a great job motivating me. Then I moved on to ChaLEAN Extreme because my Coach recommended it.

And it worked! I loved Chalene. I loved the FULL BODY workout I got from it. I loved the strength training and I LOVED the burn. Over the course of six months, I have lost 19 lbs. and over 20 inches. I have healthy eating habits. I feel so much better about myself. I can now do more than 1 push-up.

And thanks to Shakeology and Chalene, I’ve tightened and toned my mommy areas!

Daily Success 2/22/2013 – I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer



I was never really into exercise. But when I was diagnosed with Stage IV Breast Cancer, I knew my life was going to change drastically. After a total mastectomy of my right breast and chemotherapy, I was weak, depressed, and totally convinced that I needed to make some life changes.

So at the urging of my daughter and Coach, I started drinking Shakeology daily and incorporating exercise into my routine at age 71! I chose Shakeology because I wanted my body to receive all of the essential nutrients I need for adapting a healthier lifestyle. I fell in love with it and Shakeology is a big part of my daily routine.

And it has really helped now that I’m so much more active. I chose Body Gospel because I’m a Christian woman and it’s a faith-based program with up-tempo gospel music an exercise moves that make you feel like dancing and praising the Lord.

But I’ve always had stiffness and joint pain, so I chose to do Tai Cheng because it’s supposed to improve flexibility and relieve joint pain and stiffness. Guess what? They both worked. I’ve lost a few inches around my waist. But the best thing is the flexibility I’ve gained through Tai Cheng!

I love the way my body feels after exercise. I have more energy. I feel young. And both Tai Cheng and Body Gospel have made me appreciate my life more. I’ve stopped making excuses. I start my day off with a workout. And now I can keep up with my grand- and great grandchildren and enjoy my golden years with my husband. And for that, I give praise!

Daily Success 2/21/2013 – I really thought I was in okay shape.


Like many people, I really thought I was in okay shape. I ate what I wanted, even a pint of ice cream right before bed. I used to go to the gym a few times a week many years back, and somehow thought that this would carry me through.

I realized how wrong I was when my wife took some pictures of me without my shirt on when I wasn’t paying attention. I was shocked, and frankly, embarrassed at how bad I had gotten. I thought, okay, maybe I’m up around 180, but when the scale said 205 and a body fat check showed over 25%, I knew it was time for a change.

I started slow, cutting our soda and booze and phasing out junk food, but when a friend told me about P90X, that was it. I stopped and started several times, but once I found the teambeachbody website and started connecting with other Beachbody friends on Facebook, that was it. I was hooked.

My first 90 days of P90X, I lost 45 lbs. and cut down to about 10% body fat. After that, I did the P90X One on One series to add some bulk. (I loved Tony’s humor and his style was perfect for me.) Then I did P90X2 —twice—and was down to 170 lbs. and 4.5% body fat!!!

And you know what? I went from being able to do zero unassisted pull-ups to a max set of 27!

Daily Success 2/20/2013 – I felt everybody was staring at the fat girl. So I didn’t go.



I used to hate going to the gym and working out in front of other people. I felt everybody was staring at the fat girl. So I didn’t go. And that left me out of shape, out of energy, and just about out of hope. At 242 lbs, I was completely disgusted with myself.

So I just gave up. I went into complete isolation and, yes, I was so low suicide was an option. I even had a plan. But I also had a friend who was a Beachbody Coach. And that might have saved my life.

My Coach, sat me down and we called to order 10-Minute Trainer together. I was glad he pushed me, but when the box arrived, l still wasn’t sold—until I actually broke down and tried it. It was amazing. 10-Minute Trainer got me up and moving.

The first week was hard, but I kept at it and slowly added a second 10-Minute workout every day. It was amazing. I had more energy and started to really feel the results. My pants were getting looser and people started noticing. So I started adding Shakeology to my day and my cravings went away. Plus I had more energy. With the workouts and Shakeology combined, I ended up losing 29 lbs. in the first 2 months.

Next, I did the Ultimate Reset and ended up losing an additional 13 lbs. By the end of the UR, I conquered my depression and life was great once again. I’m most proud of my weight loss (42 lbs. total!), and from all of the workouts, I learned one very important lesson I CAN DO IT!
