Daily Success 4/25/2013 – I started to think I was going to be chubby for the rest of my life

I’ve never been able to maintain a healthy weight. I could lose 10 lbs., but I would gain it all right back. I was still bubbly, optimistic, funny Jennifer—but I was hauling around a major amount of excess weight. I started to think I was going to be chubby for the rest of my life. I wanted to fit into a sexy dress or suit for work, but I never shopped for those things because I didn’t want to be that fat person squeezing their butt into something “too small” or that I “shouldn’t be wearing.” I was restricted… ugh!
Last year I said, this is it. I’m going to be 30! If I don’t get in shape now, I NEVER WILL. I ordered Slim in 6® and started doing the program on my own schedule. Then I joined my Team Beachbody® Coach’s Fit Team and completed Slim in 6, with amazing results. That program took off just enough weight and gave me enough lean muscle to push on to a higher tier of fitness. I really wanted to zap the rest of the fat on my body, so in early October I ordered TurboFire®.

My biggest challenge was motivation. There were days I felt I might not get my workout in because I was tired, or because I hadn’t seen a change in a week and a half. But my Coach and the Facebook group helped me succeed, as did the people I coach who are counting on me. I made time for my routine, stuck with it, and got amazing results. The rest is history!

TurboFire and Shakeology® changed my life. Shakeology is delicious, and gets me super charged to take on my day. Plus, it makes calorie calculations easy. I am happy I used it in conjunction with TurboFire, since nutrition was a huge part of my success. I loved everything about TurboFire! The music is freakin’ amazing, and the kickboxing makes you feel like such a bad…(you know what)! My knees used to hurt, and my shoulders would get really sore, because my muscles were so weak. Now, lifting things is effortless. My leg muscles are strong enough that my knees aren’t strained. Being 40 lbs. lighter helps, too!

My whole body is a rockin’ machine now. I can do 3 sets of full body push-ups. When I take a jog, I feel like I’m running on air, like I’m a feather—well, a feather with a ton of strength and lean muscle! I have NEVER before been a size 6, and my face has slimmed so much, I can see my dimples. Getting physically fit has given me confidence to try new things and achieve new goals. In August 2013, I will graduate with my Master’s degree in Social Work, and I recently got a new job. I even told my husband, “I’m feeling so good, like I can conquer the world, like anything is possible!” I’m living my dream and the sky is the limit. I’m stronger, leaner, longer, sexier, healthier, bouncier, more confident, and have SO MUCH ENERGY! I’m a Beachbody Customer, for life!

Daily Success 3/1/2013 – Being overweight was not fun. It left me exhausted all the time

Prior to moving to the U.S. 3 years ago, I was skinny. But during my first 2 years here, I gained 20 lbs. and couldn’t lose the weight. Being overweight was not fun. It left me exhausted all the time, I felt horrible, and climbing one flight of stairs was a huge challenge.

22-Marygise-SI6-ShakeOEvery day I’d looked in the mirror and couldn’t believe that the person staring back at me was ME! Eventually, I got used to seeing myself fat and just accepted it as who I’d become.

Then one day I came across some BEFORE and AFTER pictures of an old friend who had lost weight with Beachbody and I couldn’t believe her amazing transformation. I called her up, she took me under her wing, and the next thing I knew, she was coaching me through Slim in 6®.

Even though Slim in 6 is a low-impact workout designed for beginners, since I hadn’t worked out in over 20 years, I only got through the 1st 14 minutes of the workout on my first day. But the more workouts I did, the stronger I got, and the easier they became. Sure there were times I wanted to quit, but my Challenge Group wouldn’t dare let me. They all were so supportive and motivating, and I think they often believe in me more than I did myself.

In addition to working out daily, I followed the menu my Coach prepared for our group, plus I replaced one meal a day with Shakeology®. I’m still amazed how incredibly quick and easy Shakeology is to make, and that a whole meal fits in just one glass. This stuff’s amazing!

Over the course of 6 short weeks, I lost 14 pounds, went from a size 9 pant to a 4, and replaced all my medium shirts with smalls or XS. I have so much more energy now than I’ve ever had, and even though I still have Osteopenia, my joint pain has completely subsided.

Not only did Beachbody give me a new body, they gave me the tools I need to live a healthy life. Now, my children are following in my footsteps and are eating healthy and exercising daily—which makes me so happy. But this is just the beginning of my heath and fitness journey. I recently started Chalene Extreme® and am excited about continuing to tone my body and live healthy. Thanks, Beachbody, for changing my life. Without you, I don’t know where I’d be.

Daily Success 1/12/2013 – Two year after the birth of my son…


Two years after the birth of my son, I shot back up to my maternity weight of 210 lbs. My size 18 pants were tight and I had zero self-confidence. My knees and back ached all the time, I was constantly tired, and I had chronic stomach problems. Sadly, even though I was angry, ashamed, and miserable—I wasn’t surprised. I had battled the bulge my entire life, just like my mom and sister.

But it wasn’t until I pulled a muscle in my back from picking up my two-year-old that I had finally had enough. Either I had to change now and set a good example for my son, or he’d turn out exactly like me. So I turned to Slim in 6® and other Beachbody Programs for help.

Slim in 6 was the perfect solution because it eased me back into working out and I quickly started losing weight. In 3 months I lost 50 lbs., went from 40% body fat to 24%, dropped down to a size 10, and am in better shape now than I was in high school. Simply put: I LOOK AND FEEL FANTASTIC!

However, I’m most proud of the fact that I’m setting a great example for my son. Even though he’s so young, he exercises with me all the time and is already learning healthy eating habits. And because of this, I truly believe he won’t have weight issues like I did!

Now I’m a happy and healthy mom and wife!

Daily Success 12/16/2012 – After a girls weekend out, Lisa decided to change

I went on my first diet at seven years old. And every ten years, I’d “wake up” and realize that I had gained back all the weight I worked so hard to lose. Then the cycle would repeat. At 39, I was 5’ 5”, wore a size 20, and tipped the scale at 200 pounds. Even though I was NOT comfortable in my own skin, I was simply used to it.

It wasn’t until I went away for a Girls Weekend with a friend and saw a picture of myself (which is something I’d always avoid) that I finally realized I had to change. And not just for now—but forever. I needed a plan that had nothing to do with yo-yo dieting. I needed something that was proven successful. I needed help. Major help! And that’s when I turned to Slim in 6 and Shakeology.

Slim in 6’s cardio, body sculpting, and light resistance training gave me an all-over workout on a level my body could handle. Shakeology was great because it helped reduce my cravings while increasing my energy. On the days I’d skip Shakeology, I felt horrible. So I don’t make that mistake anymore.

But beyond the workouts and the shakes, the one thing that was key to my transformation was my Beachbody challenge group. They supported me, believed in me (even when I stopped believing in myself), and kept me focused on my goals. And even though I’m dealing with Rheumatoid Arthritis and sometimes have to modify my workouts due to pain, my challenge group constantly cheer me on. There’s no way you can fail with that kind of support.

Now I’m down to 129 lbs., a lovely size 6, and am happier than I’ve ever been. Thanks Beachbody—you truly changed my life.
