My Story My AdvoCare
AdvoCare has become something to me that I have never had before.
I have spent the majority of my 31 years on earth, on a diet. I have tried everything there is to try to loose weight. You name it, healthy or unhealthy, crazy, just plain stupid, I have probably tried it. So, when a friend handed me a SPARK, my thought was, 'Yea right! I am sure this will really work.' To be honest, I never even tried that SPARK she gave me. But, it did spark an interest in me. It sparked the desire to try, yet again, to loose weight. So, I did what anyone would do. I Googled 'AdvoCare'. Then I read everything there was to read about the company, the products, etc. So, maybe I did a little more than most people would do. I am a self confessed nerd, and have a bit of OCD in me.
Once I read the information, something sparked up in me that has not been there in a while, hope. I hoped that maybe, just maybe, AdvoCare was the answer to the my weight loss struggles. I hoped that AdvoCare would be able to help me get health, fit, and truly become the women I am intended and perfectly created to be.
I asked my friend (who gave me the first SPARK) about the AdvoCare 24 day challenge, and we decided to both do it together. I have never been able to truly commit and complete ANY program. Let me say that again in words that many of you will understand. I CHEAT! I BINGE! I LIE to myself that it is okay to take a can of icing out of the fridge and dip my finger in it because it is only a 'little bit'. I hide the candy wrappers in the trash so I don't have to confess to my husband why we just spent so much money on a diet, eating plan, product, etc and yet again, I failed. But, with AdvoCare it was different. With the AdvoCare 24 day challenge, it was different. It was different because I DIDN'T CHEAT! I didn't even want to cheat. And, I started to work out. Not only did I start to work out, but I started to go to a boot camp, and I liked it. Yes, I said I liked it.
So, 24 days came and went, and I stayed on the program. I COMPLETED IT. So, I went to weigh and measure with my friend. And, get this, I lost 2 pounds. Yes, I said 2 pounds. I was dumb founded, but not devastated like I would have been before. Because, for the first time, I felt good. I didn't want to claw someone's eyes out while eating healthy. I didn't feel deprived. I had energy. I was sleeping well. I didn't have the jitters. Now, don't get me wrong. I was pretty upset I didn't drop 18 pounds like my friend, but not to the point of quitting. And then... we measured! I lost a total of 10.25 inches. I nearly passed out with the tape measure around my waste when she said I lost 2 inches in my waste! I almost cried when she said I lost 3 inches in my hips! Those are MAJOR areas where I carry ALL my weight. I even lost an inch in my arms where the rest of my lovely fat reserves are stored. Some other significant inches came off my thigh, and a bit off my calves. With that information, I started my AdvoCare journey.
It is a journey because I know that getting healthy for my 2 boys, Zach (3) and Jake (1) and my husband of 9 years James is going to be a journey. I know that becoming debt free, getting a discount on products is a journey. I know that helping my family and friends feel better, and have the energy and health to serve in all the capacities they are called to serve is a journey.
My AdvoCare is a journey. A journey to healthy, wealth, and happiness. I invite you to try the products and join this journey with me. It is one I promise, you will never regret. It is also one you and your family cannot afford to miss.

Not Just Another Weight Loss Gimic
Naturally, when my wife said "I want to try the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge", I was a little skeptical. Normally, what this meant was that I was going to try yet another diet and drop $$$ on more diet products (or juices or vitamins or whatever) that just don't work. I mean I'd been down that path. I practically paved that path with gold from all the money I had dropped on those other products. And to compound the problem, I had sacrificed things I had come to enjoy, like taste.
Here's the thing though. Fourteen days into the challenge, and I am down 9 lbs. I'm seeing results at the gym (And I am not a guy who just jumped off the coach and bought I gym membership. I go to the gym regularly.). I have energy at work without coffee or sodas. I feel healthy, my clothes fit better, and I am excited to find something that works. At the end of the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge, I'm down 14 lbs. No crazy soups, no 450 calorie/day diets, no drinking gross tasting shakes or mixes; just fitness, nutrition, and supplements.
Now that the 24 Day Challenge is over, I'm excited to try other AdvoCare products. AdvoCare works! The products may seem expensive, but I believe they are worth it. I went from skeptic to believer. In my eyes, to pay a little more for one product is better than paying for products that simply do not work. I am so happy my wife found AdvoCare. If you try the AdvoCare 24 Day Challenge, I am sure you will be happy too.
