Lost 85lbs of Junk in the Trunk with Fun Exercise – Consistently!


Meet Tanya D.! She participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for September 4th!

Excuses. Excuses. Excuses. I was queen of excuses—which is why I ballooned up to 240 pounds by the time I was only 27 years old! And as a result of putting myself behind the needs of my 3 babies and my overworked husband, I was sleep deprived and extremely unhappy, had zero energy, and felt ugly and worthless. I refused to leave the house without wearing some kind of body cinching under garment, hid from friends at the store, and felt completely embarrassed and social at social events (including family get-togethers). Then one day when I showed my son a picture of myself from my military days and he asked who that lady was, I knew I had to ditch the excuse and lose weight.

My biggest challenge was finding the time to work out. I had 3 kids under the age of 3 ½ and my husband worked 2 jobs and was in graduate school. So when I discovered that I could work out at home, I found that hitting play was much easier than going to the gym. I was able to get my workouts in while the kids ran around or in between feeding the baby—and no time was wasted on the road. Plus, I love to dance and lift weights so TurboFire and LES MILLS PUMP were the perfect combination of workouts for me.

So far I’ve lost 85 lbs. and have tons of energy. I’m so proud to say that I lost all the baby weight in less than 10 weeks, have gone from a size 20 down to an 8, and lost 17% body fat. And for the first time in 7 years I have the confidence to wear a swimsuit and a regular pair of shorts! I’m also running again and went from 16-minute mile down to 9:25 and am signed up to run my first ½ marathon this fall. But more than anything, I’m so proud that I have finally taken control of my life and am now paying it forward and helping others as a Beachbody Coach.

How’d I do it? Well, not only did I work out daily, I drank Shakeology, followed the meal plan (which is super easy as well as affordable on a tight budget), and I participated in a Challenge Group (which is great for accountability). But Shakeology was what really changed my life. I’ve always had a very strong sweet tooth that I’ve never been able to fight. It has always controlled me, and until I started drinking Shakeology I thought it would control me forever. But since drinking the shakes, I no longer crave ANYTHING! I just love this stuff.

The greatest benefits of drinking Shakeology are being in control of what I put into my mouth and the vitality that comes with it. My energy levels are higher and I’m not as grumpy. I’m also more regular, which has always been an issue for me. I used to always be hungry and no amount of food I’d eat would feel like it was enough. Shakeology has completely changed how I see food, relate to it, and how I consume what’s in front of me.

Even though I’ve lost a ton of weight, I still have a challenging journey ahead of me. But now I’m well on my way to being a better mother, wife, sister, daughter, and friend. Finally, I’ve reclaimed my happiness and my body—and there’s no better felling in the world than that. Thanks Beachbody.
