Meet Shba C. She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for October 28th!
Once I reached 280 pounds and had to buy larger pants, shirts, underwear, and bras every other week, I decided that I had had enough and it was time to lose weight. So I started doing “Get Thin Quick” schemes and starved myself on water diets, The Master Cleanse, HCG, diet pills, Slim Fast…you name it, I tried it. Sure I lost weight, but the second the diet ended, the weight piled back on with a vengeance! It was a vicious cycle and I hated myself for inflicting such abuse upon my body.I eventually realized that I needed a lifestyle change, not another fad diet, so I bought INSANITY. And while I found the motivation to buy the workout program, I lacked the will power to actually do it. It was just never the right time to start and I used every excuse in the book as to why I couldn’t push play. Then one day my mom and I went to Wal-Mart to buy a stepladder so I could reach the high shelves in my kitchen, yet the maximum weight limit for every stepladder there was 245 lbs. and I weight 280! I just sat in the aisle and cried. I was too fat for a stepladder.
My mom hugged me, wiped my tears, and said six words that changed my life: “How bad do you want it?” Two days later, on May 1st 2012, I put my INSANITY Shaun T. workout chart on the front of my refrigerator, put the first disc into the DVD player, and my transformation journey began—I never looked back.
I chose INSANITY because I wanted to achieve great results without the need for weights or equipment. My body was already heavy from being morbidly obese, so I figured I’d just be my own set of weights. But when you weigh what I did, jumping around isn’t easy. First of all, fat jiggles, so there was a lot of sloshing going on in my hips and backside. I knew my body would eventually change as long as I stuck to the plan, so I ignored those uncomfortable feelings, listened to Shaun T’s amazing words of encouragement, pushed on like the warrior that I am, and dug deeper and deeper. And after only one year or exercising daily and eating healthy, I went from a size 28 to a 10, lost 145 pounds, and completely changed my life!
I also drank Shakeology every day for breakfast, which gave me the energy I needed to get through the day without looking and feeling fatigued. Plus I also used Results & Recovery, which totally revitalized me. That stuff was great because I never felt sluggish or like I was running on fumes when working out with Shaun T.
Today I’m no longer embarrassed by the way I look. I’m proud to see my reflection in mirrors at the mall and can finally fit comfortably in my car. My lower back pain has eased tremendously, my feet and legs no longer swell, and I haven’t had to make any trips to the ER for pain injections due to back spasms. I’m constantly receiving positive compliments from family, friends, and even strangers! Even my doctor was blown away by my results.
Fitness is now a way of life for me. My life has changed so much that I want to become a Beachbody Coach so I can help others the way my amazing Coach, Josh Spencer, helped me. I love Beachbody because they really do want to see people be victorious and change their lives for the better. The incredible support from my Coach and workout buddies, along with valuable tools the Beachbody site provides, has given me my life puzzle’s missing piece. Thank you Beachbody, Josh, and Shaun T.—you guys saved me.
