Transformation Tuesday: Susan O.

Transformation Tuesday: Susan Ohling

I was only 39 and was so incredibly unhappy with life. My negative attitude about how I looked and felt was taking a toll on my 4 kids, my marriage, and myself. I hated putting on a bathing suit to go out on our boat or to the beach, so I always came up with an excuse. I was becoming a hermit—all because of how I felt about myself regarding my weight gain and muscle loss. I used to be an avid gym goer; it was my home away from home. But as the years passed and life got busy, I put exercise on the back burner and I royally paid for it. 

I knew I needed to lose weight, but how? Doing what? Then one day I saw my friend, Kelly R., transformation photos on Facebook and thought…hmmm, I can do that! And next thing you know, I WAS doing that. I joined her virtual Fit Club and less than a week later, we were taking a road trip to Miami to meet Carl Daikler—CEO of Beachbody—for a Team Beachbody event. When I saw the people there and heard their stories, I knew this Beachbody thing wasn't a joke. If only I had found Beachbody years ago.

The first program I chose was Brazil Butt Lift® but quickly realized I wasn’t ready for all the squats, so then I turned to ChaLEAN Extreme, which was a perfect match. Chalene is so motivating that it's like having a personal trainer in my home. I love this program so much that I haven't missed a workout yet. So not only did I start exercising again, I completely revamped my diet. Now I drink Shakeology every morning and am a firm believer that it truly is a miracle potion! Every morning I wake up it's there on my counter top with a big beam of light around it. Shakeology has boosted my energy, improved my digestion, and has made my hair and skin look so much healthier. This stuff’s amazing; I don't know what I'd do without it!

I also don’t know what I would have done without my amazing Coach, Kelly, or my super supportive Challenge Group. I asked God to put new people in my life to help me get out of this rut, and 3 days later I joined TBB. And in just 3 short months I lost 15 pounds and can finally do real pushups! Plus, I have a much better outlook on life and am always in a good mood. I’m also now very conscious about what goes into my body, which means no more coffee or sodas—and the funny thing is, I don’t miss that stuff one bit. And slowly but surely, I’m weaning my kids and my husband off that junk, too. 

I can't wait to go to my annual doctor visit next month so I can show her how much my body has changed. I’m so proud of what I’ve accomplished, but this is just the beginning. And what a great beginning it has been!
