Daily Success 3/11/2013 – I couldn’t play sports with my kids. I felt unattractive to my husband.

I was in a bad place. All I used to do was sit around and watch TV and stuff my face. It hurt to get up and do things. I felt lazy, unmotivated, worthless, ugly, bored. I couldn’t play sports with my kids. I felt unattractive to my husband.
But something gnawed at me. The father of my children had passed away. And I knew that if I didn’t do something about my health… I couldn’t bear the thought of my kids losing me, too.

Luckily I had a friend who was a Beachbody Coach, and it saved me. I was so full of excuses. But my coach introduced me to the idea of taking baby steps. She introduced me to how fun a gym could really be. She held my hand at times… and kicked me in the butt at times.

But she always had faith in me.

After 6 months, I hit a plateau. So my coach told me about Shakeology—and it got my body back into burn mode… and kept it there. So far I’ve lost over 100 lbs. thanks to Shakeology combined with healthy diet and exercise. I have so much more energy now. I am in less pain. I’m more active. And I don’t just watch my kids play sports—I play right along side them.

Most of all, I’m so proud of myself or sticking with my program and not letting excuses get the better of me. For that, I thank my Coach. They always reminded me that I was worth it, and always believed in me. Without a coach, I never would have found Shakeology, and I would have given up a long time ago. Thanks!
