Homeschooling Mom of Eight Loses 95 Pounds with Beachbody Products!

by admin on April 30, 2014

Beachbody Challenge Kimberly P.This post is sort of a follow up to a previous one I made about nine months ago.  I am so inspired by this woman and all the hard work she put into changing her life/lifestyle.  Kim is a homeschooling mom of eight with kids ranging in age from 26 to 5.  As a homeschooling mom, I identified with her story, and even though I don’t have eight kids and a grandchild, like Kim I have gotten great results with Beachbody products!  If you’d like to read my original post, click here.   In January of 2013, Kimberly won $500 in the Beachbody Challenge.  Later, in July of 2013, she was selected as a $1,000 monthly winner and then ended up in the running for a $5,000 quarterly prize!

Since winning the $1,000 prize she has lost an additional 20 pounds on top of the 75 pounds she originally lost, turned 50 years old, and became a grandma!   Well done!

Kimberly began her transformation journey with Tony Horton’s 10 Minute Trainer workout, and Brett Hoebel’s Rev Abs, workout, and of course Shakeology.  She later graduated to Shaun T’s INSANITY workout.   Here’s what Kim had to say when she was asked a few questions:

Tell us about your life before you started the program.  How did you feel about your body?

I am a mom!!!  I have eight children, ages 26 to age 5.  I am now also Grandma.  And I am finishing up with my 20th year of homeschooling my children.  That is my life.  I have my children with me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  While that is fantastic, and I love that they are with me, it was difficult on me.  After cooking, cleaning, and schooling, there was simply no time to take care of me.  The constant cycle of being pregnant and nursing took its toll.  I was VERY unhappy with my weight.  Well, over 20 years it caught up with me, and I was 110 pounds overweight.  Nobody ever expected me to be anything other than Mom, so I never saw it within my power to make the change, until 2012 that is, when I saw it in myself that I could change.

Describe the results you achieved with your Beachbody program.  Which achievements are you proud of?

As I said, I am turning 50 this year.  And I am now a grandmother.  I don’t feel like a grandmother, and I don’t think that I look like a grandmother.  I used to look like a grandmother.  But I don’t anymore.  And I can proudly say that my wedding dress and my wedding rings are too big for me.  But the best thing is that I now weigh less than my husband, and that means a whole lot if you have ever been in these shoes.  Insanity made me strong.  I like my shapely shoulders.  I like being able to flex my arm and have a bicep appear.  But most of all, I learned to not doubt myself.  Had I listened to that person who told me that I couldn’t do it, I would have missed out on a great experience.

How has your life changed since completing your Beachbody program(s)?

Insanity gave me confidence.  And now I want to go help others find that same confidence.  So I am going to become a certified Insanity instructor.  I want to reach out to anyone who thinks that they could never do this.  Those who would never walk in a gym and try it.  Those who have every excuse not to do it.  I want to show everyone that they CAN do it.
