《《 Hear me out for a second 》》 Nearly five years ago my life was pretty much a mess. Sure, my career was thriving and from an outsiders view my life was great but the truth is I was extremely unhealthy and gained BACK 30 of the 85 pounds I had previously lost the years prior. I wasn't comfortable in my own skin. I hated the way my pants fit. I started to emotional eat...again. I was extremely introverted. And I had zero energy due to a horrible diet and low self esteem so I stopped working out and stopped my gym membership all together. I mean why pay for a service I'm not using, right?
At the same time Eric introduced me to #P90X
. I started and well...P90X isn't for everyone. Eric saw incredible results but I gave up because it was too hard.
Then a friend reached out and offered to help me get back on track. I declined her offer because I could do it on my own. Shortly after I was brave enough to step on that scale and found out I had gained another almost 10 pounds back 😢. I broke down and reached out to that same friend who offered to help. She introduced me to at home workouts, shakeology, accountability, and MOTIVATION. All things I needed in my life. I lost weight and felt great again!
was back. I've found my voice. My pants fit again. And most importantly, I was in much better health. Fast forward to today and I'm still doing my workouts daily, drinking shakeology, BUT now I provide accountability and motivation to others. I am able to pay it forward because I've gone through hell with my weight and it took that one friend to help me find my strength to come back fighting. Now I get to help others find their strength.
I'm nowhere near perfect. I still struggle. I still have emotional eating episodes but the difference NOW is that I've found my strength and if I ever get off track....I come back fighting.
I'm stronger and healthier now than ever before because I took a leap of faith. I am Team Beachbody.
