Do you feel like you need to lose weight but just don’t have the motivation to do so? Do you start to “eat healthy” and then give up after a week? Have you ever started to exercise and after a month, or even a week, you stopped because you’re too busy? I can tell you that I could answer yes to all of these questions. I let this cycle happen for quite a while. I decided to do something about it. I joined a Beachbody Challenge Group under a friend of mine. I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but I saw so many success stories posted on Facebook, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt, right?!
I was nervous for the group to start, even more nervous to take my “before” pictures! Once the group started, I was really committed to making this work. I was held accountable within a closed Facebook group and didn’t want to have to post I didn’t do my workout that day, or if I cheated on my food or skipped my Shakeology. As a result, I went in full force and stuck with the program! Yes, I had some days, especially at the beginning where my eating habits weren’t that great. My will-power was TERRIBLE at the beginning and has, and still is, getting better and better. After only a couple of weeks, I was amazed at how different I felt. When I took my 30 day pictures I couldn’t believe it! I don’t consider myself to be on a “diet.” Yes, I changed my eating habits. Yes, I take more precaution on my portion sizes. Yes, I take a closer look at food labels and put thought into weekly meal planning and preparation. I consider that to be a lifestyle change. As a result, my families eating habits, even my two toddlers, have changed for the better! My daughter actually asks me for “healthy snacks!” I could not have been able to stay motivated and stick with this change without the support, help, accountability, and motivation from the Beachbody Challenge Group.
So what’s the catch?
There is no catch! If you make the commitment, you WILL get the results that you are looking for!
