Losing Weight, Gaining Weight, Repeat.

“While I’ve never been obese, I was unhappy, sluggish and was gaining weight and losing it and gaining weight again for years. I hid it well with my clothes and ate fairly well for the most part but I frequented fast food drive-thru’s and had never been consistent with proper exercise.

I made a goal to run a half marathon before my wedding. I lost weight with running and felt great on my wedding day. But as soon as we arrived back from our honeymoon, it was back to life as normal – drinking wine in front of the TV every night after work, no extra energy and I was gaining weight again. I packed on all the weight I had lost prior to my wedding. I never fell in love with running so it wasn’t something I continued, it was really just a goal to check off the list.

Six months after my wedding I felt like I was right back where I started. Why AM I gaining weight? I knew why, so I decided to suck it up and get a challenge pack, join a challenge group and become a coach. Even though I could barely afford it at the time, I was ready to make the commitment to change my lifestyle, stop this vicious cycle of gaining weight and I was really curious about the whole coaching thing.

Things Started Changing!

After losing five pounds in just one week of drinking Shakeology and working out to Turbo Jam, I was hooked! I decided to start Turbo Fire a few months later and started working my coaching business. I had lost 15 pounds and never felt better. I was no longer gaining weight, but confidence and energy and really fell in love with working out! Things started changing around me as well. My husband quit smoking after 8 years! We changed the way we ate and exercise became a normal part of our routine. Extended family members began drinking Shakeology and before I knew it I was helping people all around me.A year and a half later, I am almost back up to the weight I started but the difference is I look and feel completely different. I have defined arms and a flat stomach. I have learned that the number on the scale is just that, a number. I have found a passion for helping others reach their potential. I have a zeal for life that I have been lacking for a long time.

I’m a COACH!

All of these ladies weigh THE SAME!

Last summer I got laid off from my full-time job and my husband and I made a decision that I would stay home and build my Beachbody business. My dream is to be able to work from home when we have kids so it made sense to us that my time would be spent growing what I would do long term. I am currently making half of what I was making working full time at a job I hated and I truly feel like this is just the beginning. I have tripled my income with Beachbody in the first half of this year from what I made with Beachbody in all of 2012. I am committed to building my business by continuing to help other people get healthy and find their passion for helping others. What I love most about this business is that you are only successful if you are constantly bettering yourself and helping others do the same. I couldn’t think of any other way I’d want to spend my life!”
