Catherine D. Lose 165 pounds in 16 months

“When I had my stroke I weighed about 300 pounds and the doctors told me I needed to change my lifestyle.

If I didn’t, I would probably die and not have my two beautiful daughters,” said Katrin Dow, a veterinary technician in New Hampshire.

A few years later, in her mid-30s, Katrin started eating healthier and doing at-home fitness programs at Beachbody On Demand.

Her love for her daughters and her desire to be there for them was the strongest motivation, and simply giving up was not an option from her point of view.

The transformation didn’t happen overnight.

But with consistent effort over time, he’s getting stronger every day, and 16 months later, it’s amazing to see how far he’s come.

So amazing, when Katrin submitted her transformation story to the Beachbody Challenge contest, she made it to the final round of the competition and won the grand prize of $100,000!

Katrin’s life, before

“I gained a lot of weight after having my 2nd child. Year after year it continues to increase. I was a passionate eater…

I could not play with my children. Just doing everyday activities was difficult and would make me tired.

Four years ago, my kids had to stand up for me at the water park because someone was making fun of me for going down the slide. Because I felt so bad for them they are had to stand for Me!

My driving force was my children. They are my life.”

Katrin’s Transformation*

“I didn’t want to have weight loss surgery. I wanted to conquer it on my own.

I started with the 21 Day Fix. i love autumn [Calabrese] A lot. He keeps you motivated. He sends like a ray of sunshine that makes your day better.

Beachbody On Demand has a huge variety. [After 21 Day Fix] I’m obsessed with INSANITY MAX:30, Country Hits, #MBF, LIIFT 4, and 80 Days.

Coaches push you to be strong and push you harder when you think you can’t. They show you how you can modify the exercise [to make them easier / more doable] Until you don’t need it anymore and you’re going full speed every day.

[For support] I loved having the resources of a coach and bodygroup online. Sometimes you just have to say ‘It was a struggle today,’ or ‘I’m so bad today.’

And the community helps you get what you need to get through the next day. The biogroup is amazing. There’s a great community there.”

Katrin’s life, later

“This journey has been much more than just ‘weight loss’ for me. I feel like I’m finally myself!

It literally changed my life forever. I feel 100% more confident. It gave me my life back.

I’m able to play with my kids, and they’re able to get the active, healthy mom they deserve. I have to stand up to them for being proud of me.

I love the strength I have gained in both body and mind. I will continue this lifestyle forever. I can’t wait to see what I will achieve. I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful I am for these programs and the strength and determination they give me every day.
