Les Mills Pump + Shakeology = The Fat Shredder

Jessica W. Lost 71 lbs with Shakeology and Les Mills Pump in 180 days and her results are awesome!

Tell us about your life before you started the program. How did you feel about yourself and your body? 
Life before change was full of excuses. I ate out a lot and made things for dinner that were “easy.” I didn’t work out because I was too tired. I looked in the mirror and didn’t even know who was looking back at me anymore. I was miserable both inside and out.

What inspired you to change your life and begin your transformation journey? 
My best friend and coach. She has four children and is in the best shape of her life. We both turned 30 this year and I knew this had to be the time to change. I hit bottom around Christmas. Having two children in two years was no longer an excuse to carry this weight. It was a REASON to lose the weight. For the two most important people in my life!

How did Shakeology® support your transformation? What are the greatest benefits?
My main goal was to lose weight. Shakeology helped me to accomplish that. Now it is helping me to maintain the weight that I have lost. I am not sure if I had any existing health conditions. But what I saw in the mirror was someone very overweight and very unhealthy.

Shakeology is a great product for someone like me who is a full time working mom of two! It gave me energy. It was a great meal replacement that I felt good about. It allowed me to make a healthy choice when I was on the go- that’s something that I would have struggled with before and made unhealthy choices about.

What is the greatest challenge you faced before beginning the program? How did the program and Beachbody® help you overcome that challenge? 
Any time I have tried to make a change, sticking with that change has been the hardest. I would do great the first few weeks, have a bad week, and then give up. I would convince myself that I was never going to lose the weight. Beachbody changed that. It made me accountable. I logged my workouts, checked in with my coach and drank my shakes daily. I began Shakeology in January after one week I was already feeling great. I was gaining confidence and seeing results. I lost 11 pounds in 11 days. There was no stopping me! When I began Les Mills Pump in February I had lost 18 pounds and knew it was time to incorporate exercise.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program? 
Everything in my life has changed. My husband ordered weights and we now do Les Mills Pump together. My three year old son knows the name of each workout and thinks clean and press is the best thing ever. My mother and father are both beginning to lose weight as well as some of my extended family members. I realize that I am an inspiration to people and truthfully, that is the best life change I could ask for. I want people to see that it can be done. I make dinner at home and we eat as a family. My son is trying new food now and my one year old daughter is being exposed to much healthier choices. We eat whole foods; lots of fruits and vegetables. We go to parks now and do a lot more physical things as a family. Our evenings are no longer spent watching the television!
