Making a Change!

In 2012, a year after I had graduated college, I stepped on the scale and realized I was around 40 pounds over weight. My clothes didn't fit, I was tired all the time, hated the way I looked in pictures and had lost a lot of self confidence. Over the past few years I would exercise, but had not been consistent and would only occasionally adjust my eating habits. The scale would fluctuate anywhere from 5-15 pounds, but I would always end up gaining it back.

In March 2014, I got married, and I had lost almost 20 pounds in the months before our wedding. I felt the best I had in the past several years, but unfortunately being a newly wed got to me. Pretty soon I was back up to my heaviest weight. I hated being in a bathing suit, I was uncomfortable in any of my clothes, I lost my self confidence (again) and I had zero energy.

A year ago I started working on consistently and consciously watching what I was eating. I have slowly started to notice changes, but I was often frustrated with how slow they were happening. A few months ago a friend told me about Beachbody and the 21 Day Fix. I figured I didn't have anything to lose so I ordered a Beachbody Challenge Pack that included the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology. She invited me to a 21 day challenge group on Facebook where other people in my similar situation were working to meet their health and fitness goals as well. It was the best 21 days and at the end I was so encouraged and motivated! In the past few months I have been consistently exercising, following the 21 Day Fix meal plan and drinking Shakeology. I've lost 10 pounds, 2 inches off my waste, I've lost body fat, gained muscle, and I have more energy! I still have a long way to go, but I'm so happy with how far I've already come! I'm so thankful for my Beachbody team and the accountability it has brought to my life.

I'm excited to announce that I have taken a leap of faith and decided to become a Beachbody coach. Am I in perfect shape? No. Do I have a perfect body? No. Am I motivated to be healthy? Yes! Do I need accountability just as much as the next person? Yes! I'm so excited to begin this journey towards a healthier me while also helping other people reach their health and fitness goals! If you're interested in joining me on this journey please send me a message! Lspage15@gmail.com
I'll be hosting a challenge group in April, and I would love to have you in it!
