Daily Success 3/19/2013 – I used every excuse in the book

As an 18 year old, I was insecure and depressed about my body. At 22, not much had changed. When looking down, I couldn’t see my feet over my stomach, was too embarrassed to date, and refused to have a full length mirror in my room. Since I wouldn’t buy myself bigger clothes, I wore the same two outfits over and over again.
Then one day, I decided I was tired of that life and bought TurboFire®. Figured it was a good choice, considering I’d grown up dancing. But apparently, I still lacked the motivation to change because I used every excuse in the book as to why I didn’t have time to work out while cramming my face with fast food at 1:30 am. So when I got my lab results back and my doctor told me that I had Celiac Disease, Crohn’s Disease, and Colitis, I wasn’t surprised. Everything I ate upset my stomach and I never had any energy. My doctor had a heart-to-heart with me about my health, and in that moment something clicked—the very next day I dusted off the TurboFire DVD’s, started working out religiously, and drastically changed my diet.

Fast forward a few months and so far, I’ve lost 37 pounds and have gained an immeasurable amount of confidence. I’ve completely transformed my body with TurboFire and have never been healthier. I don’t even recognize myself in the mirror anymore (my full- length mirror). And for the first time, in a long, long time, I actually smile at my reflection. I’ve given up drinking sodas and juice, and haven’t eaten out in over 8 months. I’m no longer scared to meet new people and simply feel great about life. I even have an incredible boyfriend who encourages me to work out and eat healthy daily.

While TurboFire transformed my entire body, it made the greatest impact on my middle, because finally, I have a six-pack. So when I look in the mirror and see what I see, I thank God everyday for getting me off my butt and doing this with my life. And, of course, I thank Beachbody for teaming up with Chalene to create her amazing and inspirational life-changing workouts.
