I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 busy boys.
I have always been quite active, but as the years went past and after all the babies came along so did about 40 extra pounds. I wasn’t huge and thought I was in ok shape. When I realized that that was not the case was about 3 years back, I had applied for a job with Canada post, which is a high paying job and has great benefits and a good place to work. I had made it through all the interviews and had just had to pass the physical test. I thought, no problem, I’m in shape, this will be easy. WRONG! I failed the test. I was devastated, that’s when I decided I needed to do something. The only reason I did not get that job is because I was overweight and out of shape.
I started research food and healthy eating and decided to get my life on track. I found that food and nutrition really interested me and I wanted to find out all I could about healthy food and eating.
I lost about 25 pounds on my own and was searching for help on losing the last 15, I knew I was capable of having the body I always dreamed of but every time I got close, I seemed to get stuck and stop doing the work.
Then I found Beachbody, Shakeology and T25. I bought the challenge pack and started working out at home. I loved it. I didn’t even have to comb my hair let alone put on fancy clothes to impress anyone at the gym. I started seeing results. It didn’t take long till I was down 10 pounds, I am now down 15 and am still working on toning and hopefully one day seeing some abs.
The journey is never ending, you are never done. You can always get better, there is always more to learn. I am loving the journey I am on, I love helping people reach their own goals and see their potential. I will be going to school in the new year to become a holistic nutritionist so I can help more people learn how to live a long, healthy and happy life.
My Husbands Story
Hello my name is Dave Loveridge. I am a 48 year old, married father of 3 boys.
At the age of 41 I had a heart attack. I was not terribly over weight, nor did I think I was very unhealthy. That was a wake up call that things needed to change. After they put the stent in, I worked very hard to eat healthy and rode my exercise bike everyday and lost about 30 pounds. As time passed, I got bored of that started to put the pounds back on. Eventually packing on an extra 25 pounds.
My wife started T25 and Shakelogy. After a few weeks of seeing her results I decided to give it a try. As I was feeling blah with no energy and no real drive and even a little depressed.
After only the first week I noticed a big change in my mood. I was happy! And after a few weeks of Shakeology once a day and T25, 25 minutes a day, 5 days a week I was seeing great results.
This is something I didn't think I could do, but I am doing it and I LOVE it! I don't have to go the gym and have people judge me, I don't get bored riding my exercise bike or the treadmill. All I get are fast results and at the end of the 25 minute workout I am covered in sweat and feel GREAT!!!!
I have lost almost 20 pounds and have had to order new uniform pants at work, twice now. I feel better than I have in 20 years.
Thinking of starting a workout program?
Thinking of starting a workout program? Stop thinking and start doing! I'm 34 yrs old and a mom to 5 children ranging from 17 to 8 months. I was never into exercising or dieting. After my last child, I decided I needed to make some lifestyle changes. I found myself exhausted all the time. I decided to purchase the T25 challenge pack. Oh my gosh the first week was hard. I didn't care for Shakeology. I wasn't sure I made the right decision. But I made a commitment to myself. I was going to keep going strong and make this work. I joined a challenge group which was great because we all held each other accountable, checking in with each other, sharing frustrations, goals met and even recipes.. Especially Shakeology recipes. Now I'm a complete addict. I exercise Mon-Fri with T25, drink Shakeology for breakfast (love it now!) and just started running. The 25 minutes flies by so fast! From my journey with T25 an Shakeology, I have lost 19 pounds and 21 inches!! I haven't measured in a few weeks, so I'm sure it's higher than that. so I'm sure it's higher than that. Best part about this whole process is I've quit smoking, became healthier and am not exhausted chasing after my three youngest, which are 3, 2 and 8 months!
