“I joined Rachel’s team 2 months ago and it has changed my life. The community and accountability are remarkable!!!

 For the longest time, I loathed my reflection. So I learned how to work the camera, at least then captured moments were more bearable.

I remember feeling so proud of myself for losing all the baby weight and talking about it with pride… then a picture was taken that SAME day. It was so unflattering, but it was me.

That’s when I knew I needed to make a change. Since starting on my journey, I have lost 30 pounds!! I even had my second baby and lost all that weight plus more! It took a YEAR after that picture for me to find something I could stick with. But NOW-

I ENJOY what I’m eating
I LOVE my workouts
I PLAY with my kids
I’ve had to learn to take time for me and find things that keep me wanting to do more.

Do you want to know how I’ve been FINALLY reaching goals I have had for YEARS? I joined Rachel’s team and have been on a mission to improve myself, and help others do the same!”

So I’ve always been overweight. I’ve tried many things to try to lose weight but ultimately I would never stick to anything longer than 2 weeks. I was lost, wanted to give up but then I found my coach Rachel Henderson Ngom and it was like a dream come true! She guided and helped me find the tools I needed to be successful and I couldn’t thank her enough❤

The picture on the left is me about a month into my weight loss journey! Prior starting I was super self conscious, unhappy, hated going out in public, and mostly wore sweats in t- shirts. The picture the right is me today and I couldn’t be happier 😀 I feel so much better, I can play with my kids and not worry about how I look or what others think of me, I’m happy and I finally found my purpose in this world ☺


When I signed up as a coach, I originally told myself it was to make some extra cash to stash for Disney World – (Which I am!)  But it was right after I said YES and decided to be a coach, that I realized it was about SO MUCH MORE.

I have spent the last 9 years in a continued struggle with my weight, my body image, and my self-confidence.

I went through ups and downs for a long time before I finally was able to take control of my nutrition and feel better about my body. I fell in love with fitness, but I was still missing something.

Over the years, not only did I struggle with my body, but at a young age I became a wife and a mom and I felt like I lost my identity completely.

Just over a year ago, I had a severe panic attack. It became clear to me that I needed to find something for myself. I needed to feel like I was my own person, to stop depending completely on my husband, and to help provide for our family.

Because of coaching:
–I get to stay at home with my crazy monster kids, but still, bring in an income
–I get to regain some of my adult life back. 
–I get to share something that I LOVE, everyday, with other people.
–I’m on my way to creating a life freedom from the everyday grind for my family. 
–I’m learning something new EVERYDAY and connecting with people from all over the country.
–I get to help other people take charge of their lives and do the same!

I’m so grateful that I was introduced to this community of people, that I found Rachel Henderson Ngom, and I want the same opportunity for YOU!


In the past I was never able to stick to any diet or workout plan. I would start with full motivation a head of me and great intentions for myself. Then a week or two would go by and I would get discouraged with my self with not seeing any progress, so I would just give up.
Last year (2016) I was a little over weight and just gave up on myself. I would just eat, and eat, and eat. Whether is was emotional or out of boredom I let my self control get away from me. It got to the point I would tell myself well I’m already what’s another candy or 3…I didn’t have any self love anymore. I didn’t know or like the person I was becoming.
In December I had a couple of good things happen to me. 1. Rachel added me as a friend on Facebook. She had noticed I had been following her business page for a while. So she friended me and asked if I wanted help getting on track to where I wanted to be. I did! I wanted that help so bad. I just didn’t know how to start with her because we where on a budget and I couldn’t afford to buy anything from her. At the time I didn’t realize it was free for her to coach me. I just needed to become a member of Beachbody.
I didn’t officially have her as a coach until February. I signed up for free when I decided to join her free sugar detox group!
Getting back to number 2. ONE of my good friends decided to put a weight loss challenge group together. We all chipped in 25$ and whom ever loss the biggest percentage would win 350$! I never thought I would be able to win that. I just wanted the accountability.
So January I started moving everyday watching what I ate. Before she was my coach, Rachel helped me change my state of mind. She was always telling me to work on personal development… back then I would just think personal development really? I just want to be fit… little did I know how much it would actually help me.
The first book Rachel had me read was ‘The Compound Effect’ by Darren Hardy. It was an awesome read and put a few things into perspective for me. Another thing she told me to do is write down my WHY. Why do I want this? Why am I doing this? She told me to dig freaking deep and compel myself to work for what I want.
My WHY was this- ‘I don’t like myself for not having self control. I need to lose weight to keep up with my kids. And I want to feel like The real me again.’ The WHY factor really changed my state. I needed to do so many affirmations for myself. Telling myself I am loved by many. I am beautiful. I am a rockstar! I am feeling good and looking good.
It was hard some days but as long as I keep going my body will reward me! And wow! It did! Between January 4th to April 1st I lost 34 lbs and won 350$ from the weight loss challenge. I have slowed down on the weight loss and have been focusing on building my body Up with lean muscle. I am loving myself again. I am person I always was, just a bit more confidence in myself. I am wanting to give inspiration to others the way they really inspired me.

The girl on the left felt super uncomfortable with how her body looked. I was at my heaviest after having my babies (255lbs). I had promised myself that I was not going to let myself go but the pounds just kept on creeping up. I was having such a hard time losing the baby weight and just didn’t know how to do it. I tried going to the gym, taking pills (yes I know, but at the time it seemed like a good option!) but I was not seeing the girl on the left felt super uncomfortable with how her body looked. I was at my heaviest after having my babies (255lbs). I had promised myself that I was not going to let myself go but the pounds just kept on creeping up. I was having such a hard time losing the baby weight and just didn’t know how to do it. I tried going to the gym, taking pills (yes I know, but at the time it seemed like a good option!) but I was not seeing the results I wanted. The little weight I did lose, was not enough to me and the frustration started to kick in. I felt like I was letting myself and my family down. The girl on the right is happy, healthy and 35lbs lighter! Size by Shaun T changed my life forever! I saw the infomercial and decided to give it a try. That has been the best decision I have ever made! My biggest motivation of all has been my coach Rachel Henderson Ngom. Because of her and our amazing support group, I have been able to stay motivated!

Before I joined this group and Beachbody, my clothes didnt fit, I didnt feel sexy for my fiance, I was eating things that I thought were healthy but werent, I tried every program to lose weight and would barely lose anything until I met Rachel and did my first 7 day sugar detox and only lost 2 inches from my tummy but it was enough to make me want more so I signed up for a long term challenge (here). I got the 21 day fix challenge and instantly saw more results than I was used to! Rachel and you guys have helped me so much through inspiring posts and sweaty selfies! Teaching me not to give up or shame myself when I have a bad day! (and telling me so when I have a good one!) Now I know what to eat and how to exercise and after 4 short months Im down 40 lbs!! Thats soo crazy😁😁😁 And I give thanks to all of you for helping me through this!!❤❤

Rachel is a wonderful mother, coach, leader and role model! I never thought I would have as much support from joining her team as I have! She has help me throughout my fitness goals and for making sure that I know how to operate the business side of this company. She has helped me stay motivated and focused on my goals and has personally reached out to me to make sure I am doing okay through it all. I feel that I will go far with not only her amazing insight, but her friendship. I am so glad I found you and have you in my life! Thanks again! XOXO!

In  2013, I put on about 45 pounds during my pregnancy. After my baby was born, I lost weight pretty quickly due to breast-feeding, and I was only about 10 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight. However, life started taking a toll: not getting enough sleep, working a demanding job, taking off work for a sick child/being sick, not having enough time to meal prep… I gained all of the weight back… ☹️ Finally I decided that 2017 is my year. I want to be healthy, for myself, for my daughter, and just to feel better in general. I have also been inspired by my coach Rachel Ngom, who went through a similar journey… Her story helped to motivate me, to get  my weight loss journey started!!!!

I selected the 21 day fix Beach body program to get things started. Rachel  Ngom’s group offers recipes, motivational posts, and encourages posting any struggles and/or progress.

 As of today, I am on round two: day 18, 25 pounds down, 12 inches reduced, one pants size dropped…..happy to have help on this journey… And I am motivated to continue, and thankful that I have support from my coach Rachel Ngom
