"My name is Wendy and I am 36 years old. I am an Attorney in a small firm in Southwestern Pennsylvania. I have been married for almost 14 years to my awesome Husband, and together we have three (3) amazing children, Gavin age 10, Grant age 7, and Grace age 2! I work full time, and after work I am a hockey mom, football mom, and now, a Beachbody coach. When I say I’m busy, I’m not joking. I work Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5:00, and then we run 4 out of 5 nights a week with hockey practice and once football starts it will be 5 nights a week. Plus we have hockey games or football games every weekend. This does not leave a lot of spare time.
Every year I make a New Year's resolution to lose weight. Every year, I start some new exercise program or weight loss gimmick. Every year, by mid-January I quit and give up. This year, I changed my New Year's resolution. I resolved to take care of myself.
You see, over the past 10 years, I have neglected me. I have gained over 35 pounds since my pre-pregnancy weight. I have tried everything, counting points, cleanses, joined the gym, bought frozen diet meals, bought the powder junk you sprinkle on your food, I even bought a home gym. NOTHING WORKED. In January, I realized that our drive-thru, eating on the go lifestyle, has negatively affected not only me, but my family. Despite my oldest son being actively involved in football and hockey, he was tipping the scales at 123 pounds at 10 years of age. I was at the highest non-pregnant weight I had ever been. None of my clothes fit right and I hated going shopping for new ones, because I could not bear buying that next size. My daughter was in a wedding on January 4th. She was the most beautiful little flower girl I had ever seen. I have ZERO pictures of her and I at the wedding. You know why? Because I was embarrassed to be seen in photos.
I lost my mother 3 years ago to cancer. I was 33 at the time. I miss her every day and wish she could be here to see my kids grow up into the amazing children they are. She never met my daughter, because she was born after my mom passed. I knew that my time with my children was precious and I don’t want to miss out on being a part of their lives, but I also knew the path I was on was disastrous, I needed to change.
Out of the blue I began noticing posts on Facebook by my friend KellyAnn Hawking, and I discovered that she was a beach body coach. I had no idea what that meant, but I asked her for help, and she delivered. Kelly suggested the T25 program because I was giving her my poor excuses about not having time and being really out of shape. She said that T25 was only 25 minutes and there were modifications for all of the moves. She also suggested Shakeology and a clean eating meal plan.
So, I started the T25 workout program with the Shakeology nutrition shake once per day. I also found a free 5 day 'eat clean' challenge group on Facebook, and I learned all about clean eating. Eating clean, changed my family’s lifestyle. We have cut processed foods from our meals. We now eat and drink all natural, whole, unprocessed foods. I realize the health benefits of doing this for myself, as well as for my family. We all benefit from this change. I also joined an online challenge group for the T25 and realize now how important those other challengers and coaches were in helping me attain my results. I looked to that group every day for motivation, inspiration, and accountability!
Thirty days after starting the clean eating, T25 and Shakeology, I had lost 16 pounds. After ten weeks, I was down 3 dress sizes, and 25.4 pounds. I have lost over 10 inches in my waist, 4 inches each thigh, 3.5 inches on my hips, 3 inches in the chest, and 1.5 inches in each arm.
I feel better than I have in a very long time. I have more confidence and more energy to get things done, and I think I have become a positive role model for my children and husband. They help me with meal planning and grocery shopping and are very supportive with my 25 minutes with Shaun T every evening! I have become a Shakeology ‘Superfan’! This stuff has replaced my obligatory morning coffee routine and I absolutely love it! And Shaun T, well, he’s become part of the family! My plan is to restart the T25 program on April 21st, with the challenge groups, but in the meantime, I will keep doing the workouts randomly to stay active!"
