If You Want It, You Can Do It!
I have always loved to exercise and have exercised my entire life. It has been a way to relieve the day-to-day stress that I feel from a long workday. Exercise is proven to help people have more energy. However, even with exercise, I was unable to get to my desired weight. When the scale kept creeping up a year and a half ago at the age of 55, I knew I had to do something. My body was changing and my metabolism slowing, so I looked to my hairdresser for advice.
My hairdresser Jana and I always talk about healthy recipes and exercise when I go in for my hair appointments. She is the picture of health – in shape, watches what she eats, always looks beautiful. She knew I exercised, had a gym membership, and listened to me as I explained my disappointment with my scale not lowering; it was rising. She suggested I reach out to Missy who is now my health coach.
Missy is a retired registered nurse, a health and mindset coach, and a mother who has been with Beachbody for five years. Since last March, with Missy’s guidance, support, and motivation, I am down 27 pounds! I feel great, have more energy, and feel driven to share this new knowledge with others who want it!

Missy recommended I join Beachbody on Demand with the 80 Day Obsession/Shakeology Challenge pack. I was doubtful, thinking mainly of the expense, because I have always financially struggled. I was trying to figure out a way I could afford another monthly fee. However, something in me kept telling me that I should do this! I joined and began 80 Day Obsession immediately. I was amazed at the amount of materials on Beachbody on Demand – hundreds of exercise programs, eating plans, and even a cooking show that interested me.
My Shakeology order would take a week to arrive, and I could not wait for it to come in. Shakeology is a daily dose of dense nutrition. It can replace any main meal. With Missy’s advice, I ordered the chocolate vegan. When it arrived, I fixed my first shake by just adding water, took my first sip, and I thought, I cannot do this! I have never been a milk or shake drinker, so I did not want to add milk to my shake. I did not like it. I was disappointed, so I called Missy.
She said, “Kathryn, do you want to make a change? Give it ONE month!” She then shared many Shakeology recipes with me. I found one that I now love, and I have had a Shakeology drink ever since for breakfast. Check out the recipe here.
After about a month, I saw a noticeable difference when I was ready for lunch. It did curb my cravings and maintained my energy levels. I now knew that I was getting a healthy breakfast each day. Exercising was never a problem for me; however, I had to make a plan for healthy lunches, dinners, and snacks. My journey to good health began with that realization.
