Keeping My Body Fit and Healthy with BODi

After I Broke My Back in Iraq, Brazil Butt Lift Got Me Back on Track

Shawneen participated in The Beachbody Challenge and won the $500 Daily Prize for January 10th!

I was fat and miserable, too ashamed to look at myself in the mirror, too heavy to keep up with my kids. Because of a war injury I broke my back serving in Iraq and the weight I had put on, I could barely walk.

So I was spending more and more time in my wheelchair. And I was miserable.

Until I saw the Brazil Butt Lift infomercial that’s when I said, ‘that’s how I want to look.’ Because of my spinal issues and the nerve damage, I had to start out slowly. At first it was one video every 2 weeks, then every week, and finally, after six months, I had the strength to tackle the 60-day program!

Losing the weight took the stress off my back and relieved the pain. So I don’t need my wheelchair anymore. I can walk, ‘hands-free’ something my Physical Therapist thought I’d ever do. I also feel like Brazil Butt Lift helped me with my brain injury, by forcing me to think at a faster tempo. I can’t say enough about Brazil Butt Lift and Tanya, my Coach, who pushed me along my journey.

Today, I can run and walk and even dance thanks Leandro. But what I love most is when my kids look at me and say ‘if mom can do it, anyone can’!
