Transformation Tuesday: Jennifer O.

Transformation Tuesday: Jennifer O.

When I became pregnant with my son I suffered from morning sickness 24/7. And being as nauseous as I was, you’d think I would have lost my appetite. But NOOOOOOO! Instead, I gobbled up everything in sight; justifying it by saying, “I’m pregnant! I can eat anything I want!” And 9 months later, a beautiful 8 lb. 9 oz. baby boy was born and I was left carting around 60 pounds of excuses.

Two months had passed and I was still wearing my maternity pants, trying to hide my gargantuan size. But after a while I was tired of my stomach hanging over my waistband and feeling like a slob. Not only did it look bad, it was the most uncomfortable feeling in the world. More than not wanting to end up overweight for the rest of my life, I really wanted to be able to keep up with my son as he grows up and starts running around. So I dug out my set of
INSANITY DVD’s (I did it two years ago and got pretty good results) and pressed play. But this time, I told myself I’d push myself even harder as well as be super strict with my diet. And in 6 months, I went from 198 lbs. down to 153, lost 11 % body fat, and shrunk from a size 16 to a 6. Turns out, it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be to find the time to exercise daily or to eat healthy.

For starters, I had Shaun T. on my side. I won’t lie, there were PLENTY of times when I wanted to fall down and eat cake, but I didn’t. I just held onto his “keep going”, “don’t give up”, and “digging deeper” attitude. And I love the fact that the people in his videos didn’t intimidate me. They were as exhausted as I was and it felt great when I was actually keeping up with them. It felt even better when they’d fall and I was still going!

And since I was exercising daily, I figured I might as well start eating healthy daily as well. So I pulled out the nutrition guide and read through it with an open mind. From the very beginning I told myself, no more cheating, no more excuses, no more “EWWW-ing” new foods. And to my surprise, I liked a ton of the recipes. Not only was I saving calories by eating healthy, I was saving big bucks because I was no longer eating lunch out.

But the real life changer for me was
Shakeology. Once I started drinking it daily, my fat literally melted away. I felt more energized, a lot happier, it improved my digestion, and I stayed fuller much, much longer. Once I had my shake for breakfast, I was set up for a day of eating well. I’m addicted to this stuff—but in a good way!

So many people from my hometown ask me how I did it. So I tell them. And now that I’m a Coach, I can pay it forward and help change their lives too. I’ve never been fitter, healthier, or happier. Thanks Beachbody!
