Before finding Beachbody, I had faced some pretty tough times—death of my brother, a divorce, and giving birth when I weighed 307 pounds. When I was diagnosed with a cyst that covered 60% of my thyroid, my doctor also said I was pre-diabetic and would need to start taking medication twice a day.
I kept thinking, ‘I’m in my 30s—I can’t take a pill every day, forever.’ That’s the minute I knew I had to do something.
TurboJam got me started, and now TurboFire is keeping me going! I can’t say how much I love the Turbos. I love the modifications and truly enjoy the New to Class aspect Chalene gives you on every program. You don’t have to get it right. Just keep trying! I will sit in traffic and think, ‘Wow, I could be busting a move now.’
And here’s the best. I’ve lost 87 lbs. so far. I can breathe. Take no prescribed medication. My blood pressure is normal. When I started, I was wearing a size 24. Now I’m a 14 and wearing larges. And I’m no longer pre-diabetic.

What did Challenge Groups give me? Constant accountability. In my Challenge Group, we were all very active. Having a support group and being on a team was certainly one of the key factors for me. Shakeology, too. My doctor asked what I was doing to get such fantastic results, so I made sure to inform her that Shakeology is the key. I am truly a new person. Every day is an active day.
I’ve moved on to Les Mills Combat™ and I am still shedding pounds!
