Busy Mom of Seven Loses 16 lbs. Using the 21 Day Fix and Shakeology

It’s Transformation Tuesday! I love highlighting women who have gone through our fitness challenges. My cousin, Nikole, went through our fitness challenge last month and got great results. She is a busy mom of seven kids. She contacted me and said she was ready to get back in shape and wanted to start helping others along the way. So she did just that! She joined our Biggest Slim Down Contest in April and was one of the winners! She won $58 for losing 13 lbs. in the contest. Then she began paying it forward and helping others along the way!

She has earned $287.81 in less than two months of being a coach just for helping others, plus the $58 she won in the contest. So that is $345.81 total! She has lost 16 lbs. total so far, and she looks awesome! She earned a FREE t-shirt from Beachbody for finishing her workout program, and she became an Emerald Coach! WOW!

She’s off to an great start! Starting is the hardest part, and she’s doing amazing! This is her story in her own words:

An Unexpected Knee Injury

In January 2014, just one month I had my seventh baby, I went skiing and tore my ACL.  I didn’t have insurance so I had to just deal with my knee until I was finally able to go to physical therapy in the summer.

I ended up gaining even more weight and I was at a point where I was depressed.  I didn’t want anyone taking pictures of me and I hated it when people tagged me in their pictures on social media.  I threw out all of my smaller clothes because I had given up on ever fitting into them again.  I was fat, my knee hurt and I never did anything for myself.

Watching other moms on social media change their body helped me to feel like I could change mine.  I saw Beachbody’s 21 Day Fix workout and meal plan, and it looked like something I could do.  It was simple and looked like I could do it with just a little bit of time.  I realized it was time to do something for myself and now I see that doing this for me, has helped me to take care of my family better.

Hurting my knee was my biggest challenge, because I had to wait so long to get help.  My knee hurt right up to half way through my program, because I had to strengthen it.  It doesn’t hurt now because I have made it stronger and I feel like I can do anything again.

Making Changes and Seeing Results

I loved that I could go at my own speed.  I just had to do the exercise for one minute.  I didn’t have to keep up with everyone else.  I loved the meal plan and the containers.  It made it more simple for me to just grab my food and go.  It also made it easier for me to gauge how much to eat.

By the 3rd week, I was able to make it through the workouts without a lot of modification.  I was also proud that I was losing so much weight at once.

I have gotten more involved in the community and on social media.  I feel like people care about me and that I am wanted.  I feel proud to be my kids mom and my husband’s wife.  The Beachbody program has given me purpose.

Participating the challenge group was truly the key to my success.  It was very motivating to have the accountability.  There were so many times I thought I could go without doing my workout, but then I would remember that I had to report at the end of the day.  That helped me to be successful.

My coach Shannon was always in contact with me, checking to see how I was doing and if I needed help with anything.  She would give me ideas if I was stuck and she was very motivating.

I loved using Shakeology!  I expected that it would help me lose weight, but I noticed that my nails were not breaking and my skin was looking better.  I especially noticed the skin on my face got it’s elasticity back.

The Shakeology curbed my cravings and was an easy thing to grab and go.
