* Please welcome my guest poster Stephanie who is here to share some great info with you. She herself is an Army Wife and will share her weight loss story with you as well as how she turned weight loss into a business.
My name is Stephanie.
I'm a mother, an Army wife, and a stay at home mom. My daughter was born on December 9th, 2008. She's the best thing to ever come into my life. I don't really know how I thought my life made sense before her. My husband is a Blackhawk Helicopter Pilot in the Army. We are living in KS right now. We just moved here and bought our first house. I love it.
I have recently become a Beachbody Coach. What is Beachbody? It's the company that sells P90X, Turbo Jam, Hip Hop Abs, Rev Ab, Shakeology, etc. Anyways, I gained close to 60 POUNDS when I was pregnant with Mya. About a month after I had her, I started P90X. I loved it. I did it for about 4 months and lost about 45 pounds. They are such great workouts that you can do at your own pace, until you become familar with them and are ready to push yourself to the next level. What's great about P90X is, your body never gets "use" to the workouts, you just get stronger and are able to push yourself harder. Therefore, you and your body still feel the workout even after 3 months.
After the 3 months I added a spinning class and did that for about 2 months. I lost about another 10-15 pounds while in that class (which I was completely addicted to). So, between those two workouts, I lost the majority of my baby weight and gained some muscle that I never new existed. During that whole time, my husband was stationed in Korea. He got back in June 09 and we moved to KS in July 09. For about the first month of living here, I was busy putting our house together. Once that was finished, I talked to my friend, Mindy (TurboMindy) because she had just signed herself up to be a Coach. She told me about Turbo Jam and within 5 minutes of her explaining it to me, I was sold! I ordered to DVD's and LOVED THEM!
It's such a fun, upbeat workout, it's hard to believe that you can get the results that you do. After doing the workouts for a while, I decided that I wanted to help people feel as great as I do and make people even more aware of these products. Trust me when I say, I was NEVER a disciplined person when it came to working out! Actually, I hated it. But, that's because I never got the results, like the ones that I got from the Beachbody workouts. If you feel like you want to try these workouts and are really interested in making a change, but you don't think that you can do it yourself, or if you want to start your own Independent Beachbody Business and need some help, that's what I'm here for!!
I'll give you that little push you need to get motivated, all while practicing what I preach. This business is SO great for us Army Wives who want to make a little extra spending money. I just LOVE everything about this business and I KNOW that you will too!

I LOVE talking about all of this and I really look forward to talking to you!
