Share the joy
I don’t think this would have been possible without my coach and my group. Every day I made myself post in the group. My coach would encourage us all. Everyone would celebrate our successes and we would sympathize and encourage each other when we had a setback…Angela makes herself available all day, everyday. I can cry with her, I can laugh with her, I can call her while I’m in the middle of a weak moment and she will talk me through it. If I’m having a bad day or week, she will say just…

Having the group really helps you keep focused. I had a high stress, busy, long-hour job running a concert arena – having focus really helped. There was also the “coach” factor – I didn’t want to let down my coach…knowing that someone was checking in and counting on you.

The Facebook accountability group was my biggest key to success. Without an accountability partner, I would have given up. It felt great knowing that on a down day I had a network of support on Facebook. I really do feel like it’s changed me. I’m changing a lifetime of habits.

I truly feel like I have the best Coach in all of Team Beachbody! She is extremely motivating and he lives exactly what she preaches. She was there pushing me through the majority of my transformation and answering any and all questions I had a long the way! She is truly a great coach and even better person!

I connected with other people that had the same issues – like mindless eating and binge eating. It was great to be able to reach out to them. A lot of my friends don’t exercise, so having that group really helped pushed me out of my comfort zone.

Accountability is key along with motivation. I knew the other people in my group were pushing it so I knew that I couldn’t stop or even skip a day because those guys were going to push me. It was an experience that I can’t wait to do again. I also grew friendly relationships with some of the guys and now have friends with common interest all because of the challenge groups.

My coach really took the time to stick with me and the other girls in our group to make sure we were holding ourselves accountable. It really felt like we were taking this journey together even though I was miles away from everyone…I’m forever indebted to my coach for helping me to get past myself; because I was really the only thing holding me back from being who I wanted to be and getting where I wanted to go.

My Challenge Group was the backbone of my success. I knew I was not doing this just for me anymore, but to make others proud, as well, and to show them that they can do it, too. How could I expect other Challengers to do what was asked if I didn’t do it? The days when I felt like just laying in bed I knew I had to get up and push PLAY because they all were and they needed me just as much as I needed them. Everyday there were new messages in the group with supportive quotes, new recipes, or just …

People in the group were continuously sharing stories and keeping each other up to date every day. Talked to them over the phone and texting asking how day was. Definitely made legitimate friends thru the group.

With the Challenge Group on Facebook, I was held accountable and it made me look honestly at what I was eating everyday and if I was exercising. It was positive support and a neutral place to vent, to celebrate victories and mini goals, and to be educated on all great things about exercising and diet and how Team Beachbody helps people fulfill things that they never thought possible.
