You might think after all the incredible success stories and testimonials pouring in from the Beachbody Ultimate Reset the WOW factor would start wearing off, but I’m continually surprised and humbled by the incredible life-changing effect this 21-day program has on people. I had the pleasure of chatting with Bob on stage at Summit (and rewarding him with a nice over-sized check) and he is living, breathing proof that when you commit to the Reset it’s about so much more than losing weight, lowering blood pressure, and cutting inches off your waist – it’s the realization that you’ve taken control of your life for the first time in a long time.
Here’s Bob’s story:
Tell me about your physical and emotional condition BEFORE starting the Beachbody Ultimate Reset: My physical appearance spoke for itself! I felt miserable. I ate poorly, had extreme sugar fluctuations which drastically affected my mood, was always tired and sluggish, had no stamina, lost my breath over the smallest amount of physical exertion and felt I was totally out of control! I couldn’t sleep at night without medication and after losing two sisters at the age of 58 to heart disease I was very worried I was going to end up having a heart attack or worse if I didn’t change something soon! I’ve already had testicular cancer and even though I’ve been cancer-free for 9 years, I was still worried that my weight and eating habits were not helping me stay cancer-free.
Why did you choose to do the Beachbody Ultimate Reset? I saw the results people were having and my wife, who is also a coach, and I wanted to do it! I was afraid to start it because I really didn’t think I would be able to do it. We had a lot of ‘long’ talks about being positive and taking it one day at a time. She really encouraged me and our challenge group was big a support system as well. I definitely needed the motivation and support of others to accomplish this. I am actually surprised that I did it! As I started to lose weight, it really motivated me to keep going. There were some really hard days, but I would just rest and eventually they passed. I remember when my wife told me (since we are huge Survivor fans) that I should pretend I am on Survivor and this was the only food I could eat to win the million dollars. Well, my health and the way I feel now is worth more to me than a million dollars!
Describe your experience with the Beachbody Ultimate Reset: What did you like about it? Well, I have to admit that at first I didn’t like anything about it! I was a “meat and potatoes” guy and none of that was on the menu! My wife prepared all the meals for me which helped me a lot because I just ate what was put in front of me! I guess that’s a good point to make to women who want their men to lose weight! We did it together and even her 84 year old mother who lives with us did it and she lost 14 lbs. and my wife lost 11 lbs. Doing it together as a family made it so much easier because the only food that was in the house was the food on the ultimate reset menu!
How has the Beachbody Ultimate Reset changed your body and your life? What part of your results are you most proud of? It has changed my body, as evidenced in the pictures. I have lost significant weight and now I believe in myself and believe I can lose the extra 20 pounds I want to lose. I eat healthier for the first time in 54 years! I eat vegetables, salad and now that it’s over I have added in fish and chicken. I have not even had any red meat since I completed the Reset. I feel better overall, sleep better, my moods have improved and I am so much healthier! Most importantly is how the program has affected my health in such a positive way – reducing my blood pressure to normal (without medication), decreasing my sugar counts to normal, and removing 5 daily medications is priceless. I realize I do not have to suffer to live a healthy lifestyle and the way I ate before doesn’t even tempt me now – and I thank the Ultimate Reset for that! I wouldn’t believe someone if they told me the results I would experience if I hadn’t done it myself!
Take it from Bob. It takes the desire to make a change, an amazing support system (Challenge Group or Family Members), a phenomenal program, and perseverance.
Like all Beachbody products – it’s not easy, but it’s not supposed to be. It’s going to test your fortitude, but it’s also going to give you the tools to start living a new, healthy lifestyle in just 21 days.
It’s not rocket science – (it’s nutritional science – okay joking aside) – the Reset and all of our programs won’t work unless you dive in and commit with everything you’ve got… and that’s exactly what Bob did. He hit some hurdles, but he came out a stronger, better man… and he’ll be the first to tell you about it. Congratulations Bob, and everyone else who is getting a new lease on life with the Ultimate Reset!
