Daily Success 1/7/2013 – When I started gaining weight, it was gradual at first.


When I started gaining weight, it was gradual at first. I went from 160 to 180 lbs. It didn’t feel like the end of the world, until I eventually found myself at 215 lbs. Three years later, I was so lost—as a woman, as a mother, and as a wife. I was so disgusted with myself.

To make matters worse, I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome, which made it difficult for me to lose weight. When I got pregnant, I found out, it also made it difficult for me to carry to term. I lost 3 pregnancies. No one could imagine how desperate I was feeling. I was dying inside.

Thankfully, my son got through to me. I had lost my own father when I was just 15 and he was only 39. I didn’t want my son to face the same loss, and if I didn’t do something quick, I was going to end up just like my dad.

I started eating healthier and went from 215 to 168 lbs. It took six months, but I did it. My coach encouraged me, posting before & after pictures to inspire me. And I began to believe that I could actually do it—that I could transform my body—inside and out.

Tony Horton’s 10-Minute Trainer was perfect for my life. I had two jobs, a child, a house to tend to and a sick husband who needed me. Ten minutes was all the time I had—but it was enough to make a difference. I lost another 21lbs.

My body has reacted positively to all the changes I’ve made. I’ve not only lost weight, but I look good. I feel sexy. I feel like a new person. Thank you Beachbody. Thank you Tony Horton. And thank you Coach. I couldn’t have done it without you.
