Advocare Weight Loss

I am so excited to be doing this 24 day challenge! In truth, I’ve done the challenge before and had good results. But I didn’t make a lifestyle change. And folks, you have to commit to making a lifestyle change or the results will only be temporary. Trust me!

So who am I… I am an assistant principal of a K-8 school. I have four boys. And all my boys are involved in extracurricular activities causing a ridiculously busy schedule. And that’s been part of my excuse. I don’t like to cook so when we’re out at the kids’ events it’s always so easy to grab some fast food.

I signed on as an Advocare distributor the last time I did the challenge a few years back. And it made for a nice discount. I never sold the product I just used the distributor number to get discounted product. But that was years ago and many pounds since.

My school started a Biggest Loser challenge and I signed up figuring it’d help me kick it into gear. When I did my first weigh-in, my heart sank. I was 199.8 pounds. I was crushed. I have never been so heavy. I used to be a petite 120-130. I knew I was overweight but never stepped on a scale because I knew it’d be too heavy for me. So when I did that first weigh- in, I felt broken. So I made some changes. I started eating better and cutting some things out but I still wasn’t all in. I’d cheat and eat things just because they were around. I’d stop off and pick up a cookie or a smoothie because I had a craving.

At the one month weigh-in, I was down 4.4 pounds. I thought not too bad considering I didn’t stay on track. But inside I knew I could and should do better. So when Madame Deals issued the chance to do a 24 day challenge and write about it, I jumped on the chance!

Why you ask? Why now? What difference would that make now? Well, because if I have to write about and share my results then I’ll stick with it. Advocare is a great product and if I’m using it then I’ll stick to it. I found an Advocare 24 day challenge manual that lays it all out. Everything from what to take, when to take it, what to eat, and what to avoid.

So I know this will be my recipe for success. A good product, a how-to manual, a supportive Advocare coach, and the commitment to stay true to Madame Deals blog.


Advocare 24 Day Challnege Review: After the Advocare cleanse phase

I finished the cleanse phase and I’m down 5.6 pounds and 6 inches. ūüôā

During the cleanse phase, I stuck with meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch. I figured it’d be the easiest way to keep on track instead of trying to pack lunches that I’d forget to take to work. I took Catalyst for my snacks in between meals. Since it was the cleanse phase, I was able to eat fruit with my Catalyst. I chose to use the Catalyst because I wanted to amp up my Advocare plan.

Unfortunately, I did not make it to the gym at all during my first ten days. I believe my results would have been much better had I gone to the gym. Now that I’m in the Max phase, I will make sure I go to the gym on my burn days. Or if I don’t make it to the gym, I’ll at least walk or run.

I’m going to continue with the meal replacement shakes to make sure I’m getting the nutrition needed at each meal. I like the taste of the shakes. I’ve used the strawberry and vanilla ones. For the strawberry ones, I’ve occasionally added the no-sugar fat free Jello cheesecake mix 2 scoops to make it like Strawberry Cheesecake. For the vanilla shake, I’ve added the Oreo Jello to mix it up a bit. The shakes are good without the mix ins but since I’m having 2 shakes a day I just wanted some variety.

What I always hear is the hardest part of the cleanse phase is the fiber drink. I didn’t mind it so much. You just have to make sure you use at least 10 oz of water. If it’s still too thick for you, just add a little more water. I know some people that have mixed it with orange juice.


Day 20 already! I can’t believe my Advocare 24 day¬†challenge is almost past. I got on the scale this morning and was a little disappointed because my weight has remained the same from day 10. My inches lost has gone from down 6 to down 10 inches, so I’m excited about that.

When I took the updated pictures, I didn’t see much change from the front but I feel like I see a difference in the back view. So I’ll just have to walk backwards for a while! ūüėČ

I wake up easier each morning and feel more rested. I think eating better and taking the Advocare supplements has helped me sleep better and has helped me be more productive during the day. I like having the energy to make it through the day now as opposed to the sluggish trudge I felt before. Love, love, love SPARK!

As I think about my last 4 days of the challenge, I’m hoping for continued results. The 24 day challenge is only the beginning of my journey.


After the  Advocare 24 Day Challenge

diane

As I move forward from the 24 day challenge, I’m hoping to have continued results. Even if I didn’t see the scale move as much as I would like, I know I’m making choices that’ll lead to a happier, healthier me. And I know the change in choices will help me get the changes on the scale.

I know it took more than 24 days to put on the weight so I know it’ll take more than 24 days for it to go. It’s been all about making a lifestyle change and I’m well on my way.

I’m taking away a renewed focus on better health. I needed to kick start my weight loss after letting life get in the way. The challenge has put my body on a schedule that I plan on keeping. Instincts know when it’s time for a snack or it’s time for a meal. I had lost that. I’d go hours without eating and then overindulge and eat in excess. Or I’d graze. I’d nibble on whatever was around whether it was candy, snacks, or food.

Now I’ve passed over snacks and candy. I don’t feel inclined to eat just because it’s there. I don’t feel compelled to keep eating because the food is there. My triggers go off when I’m full. I haven’t been overeating like I was before.

My advice to anyone considering the challenge is to take the leap. Commit to yourself and commit to following the challenge and you’ll get results.

Check out Loretta’s¬†Advocare 24 Day Challenge Review

DAY 1: It is hard to get into a program with out doubts if it is going to work for you or keep you motivated throughout the challenge. At 50 I have found that program with a great support team of sisters that are reaching for the same goal by improving our health inside and out. The key for success in the program for me was by organizing my day into day bags so that I could grab and go. My 1st. was a success

Day 2 was a success with Advocare 24 Day Challenge!
The only thing that I have to change tonight is when I take my herbal cleanse supplement, I will need to cut them in half since I am not a pill taker.

Day 2 fiber drink. Is yummy with orange juice that has 50 percent less sugar! yummy

My workout on Day 3:
Clean and shampoo all the carpets in the rooms and deep clean my hardwood floor.
Where did all this burst of energy come from ladies?
I felt like if I am spring cleaning my body and getting ready for the summer then I also need to clean my surroundings. Tomorrow on my job we will start spring cleaning at UVA since the students are on spring break.

Day 7
Today as I sit back an relax as I travel down the road to Virginia Tech with my son at his age cut state swim meet, I have my grab and go bag pack. As I got on the scale this morning with my friend the scale watching and cheering on my progress of dropping 3lbs. Yeah for the new me keeping up with my 24 day challenge and being a full time wife. mother, worker and a swim taxi mom. I am not looking back but forward at the new me that has put herself on hold for 10 years.

Day9
I am on day 9, still feeling awesome and sticking with the plan.
Even though I had a very busy weekend with travelling with my son to his state meet for swimming, I was still able to stay focus by following Advocare 24 day challenge. Having my 3 meals away from home was not hard because I was determine not to fall off the horse. Eating out made me more aware of my goal that I have set for myself. And that is to eat healthy and to become healthier. Once you are prepared mentally to do something, then you can walk away from temptation without any regrets. Thanks Advocare for getting me through this busy weekend. Yeah for me!

The first picture when I’m in the plaid is the before, the picture when I’m in the jacket is after 12 days.

Day 12
I feel healthy and more importantly, I look healthy. At first, it was a bit difficult because I wasn’t used to eating portions and having to eat certain things. But as the days went on, it became easier and it doesn’t even phase me anymore. I’m really excited to continue my weight loss journey with the assistance of Advocare.

Advocare Diet: To Be Comfortable in My Skin Again

Advocare Diet

Jenny

Advocare Weight Loss

I do not watch television and prefer to spend my time reading. I have a wonderful life and am blessed in many ways. My husband and I have been together 19 years, married 11 years in June. He is my biggest supporter and my greatest love. I have two children (9 and 10) who I love dearly and are always on the go. I live 20 minutes from the ocean and spend my weekends on the boat. I spend Monday-Friday teaching Reading and Writing to a great group of 3rd graders. Life is amazing and I’m surrounded by friends and family…..but…

I had reached a point where I was no longer comfortable in my skin. My ‚Äėfat jeans‚Äô were getting snug, my face looked rounder every day, and my energy level was dwindling. Not exactly how I pictured myself to feel at 38. And definitely not the path I wanted to continue on into my 40s.

So I’m doing the Advocare Diet for me. I want to be the mom running around the beach with her kids, not the blob under the umbrella in a cover-up. I want to be the sexy wife on my husband’s arm. I want to smile when I look in the mirror and know that I’m doing everything I can to take care of myself.

The Advocare Weight Loss Challenge is my first step. I am on Day 4 today and it’s getting easier every day. I organized all of my days into bags which helped tremendously. I prepackaged my snacks for the week so I just grab which ones I want for the day when I’m making my lunch. I haven’t been hungry at all. The Fiber Drink is rough to get down in the morning but I plug my nose and chug! LOL. I love the Spark drink, the fruit punch flavor in my opinion is better than the orange. I am looking forward to trying the Meal Replacement drink next.

I am on my way to Disney for Spring Break and will do Days 5-10 while on vacation! Making my lists and getting ready!

Melissa

Advocare Weight Loss

Hi, I am Melissa and I am a 42 year old wife, mother and teacher. I have a 14 year old son and a 7 year old son. I have been married for 20 years. I have hid in this overweight body for my entire adult life. I have gained and lost hundreds of pounds over the years. I have done every weight loss program out there and have done them successfully. Unfortunately, since I didn‚Äôt change my relationship with food ‚Äď the weight came back on every single time. So, this time my goals will be different. This time while I am fixing the outside, I will also be fixing the inside.

During college, I was a victim of an attack. I never really dealt with the emotional damage that caused and started gaining weight to hide and keep myself ‚Äúsafe‚ÄĚ. It has been over 20 years, and the hiding has not helped me heal; and I am done. I am done being a victim and letting someone else have control of my life. I am done hiding.

As I said, I have a 14 year old and 7 year old. I have a million pictures of them through the years. Only a few of those pictures are of me with them. I hate being in pictures. I don‚Äôt like the person that I see in them ‚Äď because it doesn‚Äôt look like me. When they are grown and have moved on with their lives, I want to have pictures of all of us to look back on.

My goal is not only about losing weight. My goal is to like the person that I see in the mirror. My goal is to deal with my issues. My goal is to make lasting memories with my family that I can look at and not focus on the weight that I see. My goal is to be comfortable in my own body.

I chose the Advocare Challenge because I have two friends who rave about it. They were both very successful with it and are continuing the food choices after the 24 days ended. They have changed their relationship with food as I need to do. I also know that I can go to them for support and accountability.

Thanks for reading my story, and I hope that you will follow me on this journey. I don’t expect this to be easy, but I do know that it will be worth it….. and that I am worth it.

Advocare Update #2 – Day 15

I have hit the two week mark and stepped on the scale. It said that I have lost 9 pounds. I am very happy with that! I have stayed off of the scale until now because I didn’t want to sabotage myself. I was afraid that if I stepped on and didn’t see a loss that I would give up and go back to my old ways so the scale is rarely my friend. I will weigh myself again on day 24.

The first ten days were hard. I felt like I was thinking about food ALL day long. Day 11 arrived and I felt great! I am really enjoying the supplements that started on Day 11. I am taking MNS Max Control C. I have a lot of energy now, am very focused and rarely feel hungry at all. It was a huge change for me to have to remind myself that it is time to eat. The only down side I have experienced is having a hard time sleeping at night. I am unsure whether this is due to the supplements or the fact that I have a lot on my mind right now.

I did not start exercising until day 10. My goal now is to get to the gym at least 3 days a week. Working full time and being a mom with boys that have sports every day of the week, I will have to push to get that in. I have found that planning is key. Food planning, time planning, setting alarms to remind myself to take my supplements 30 minutes before lunch time etc.

My goal in the next ten days is to lose another 3 pounds. Twelve pounds in 24 days would be a great accomplishment. I need to aim high in order to stay focused and figure that if I ‚Äúfail‚ÄĚ and only lose eleven that is not a failure at all. I highly recommend this program to anyone like me that has tried it all ‚Äď and needs something to work. Advocare works ‚Äď and is worth the investment. YOU are worth the investment!

Advocare Update #3 – Day 20

I have made it to Day 20 of the challenge. I have to say that I feel really good ‚Äď but I did struggle with having a little more flexibility from day 11 on. I have not stepped on the scale again ‚Äď and will not do it until the challenge has been completed. My goal is to lose 12 pounds.

I have had problems with sleeping since I started the MNS Max Control C. I don‚Äôt know if it is due to the pills or due to the stress in my life right now. Baseball has started again ‚Äď and that is pretty much 7 days a week with two boys. I try to take a lot of veggies and fruits to practices and games. I am also trying to figure out how to eat early enough in the day since we don‚Äôt get home with practices until after 7pm and that is too late for me to eat.

I really like the program at this point. Other than the sleepless nights, I have so much more energy and feel really healthy. I have found that I have to set my alarm on my cell phone to assure that I take my pills 30 minutes before lunch.

I do have a problem with getting in the amount of water that is recommended. Being a school teacher, I cannot take bathroom breaks often, and that can be a challenge with drinking all that water. I do drink a lot of water though, and I am beginning to crave Pepsi a little less than I used to.

I am excited to weigh and measure in the next week. I know that I still have a long way to go to reach my goal weight, but I have gotten a great start and it WILL carry me on to beating this constant battle with weight!

Advocare Update #4 – Day 28

advocare 24 day challenge

 

The challenge is over, but the journey continues. My 24 day challenge has ended but I am still a long way from where I need to be. I feel great and am looking forward to feeling even better as the weeks go by. I have lost 11 pounds and 8 inches!

I have to say that this is an easy plan to follow. I liked how they spelled things out for me. I liked that the supplements were prepackaged on days 11 ‚Äď 24. I liked that as long as I prepped and was prepared that it was completely ‚Äúdoable‚ÄĚ. I didn‚Äôt like drinking THAT much water‚Ķ.. water is a struggle for me. I was hoping by now that it would be easy ‚Äď but I have to say that there are many days that I REALLY want a Pepsi. I also wish that I saw more of a difference between my day 1 and day 24 pictures. I do not lose weight in my face quickly. But thankfully I took my measurements and can see that I have lost inches.

My plan is continue eating on plan and continue the weight loss. My journey is far from over. I am learning patience. I am learning to persevere. I am learning to feel better about being ‚Äúme‚ÄĚ. I am hoping that eventually I will learn to like exercise, but it hasn‚Äôt happened yet!
If you have weight to lose, I urge you to give Advocare a try. I sure am glad that I did!

Advocare Weight Loss

Hello to all the Madame Deals readers!  I am Jessica, blogger and new stay at mom to the sweetest little guy in the world.  Until about a year ago, I was always on the thin to normal side and really never had to worry about weight.  If I wanted to be thinner I just worked out a little bit and the weight just shed off.

Well…. over the last year I dealt with a TON of stress. ¬†Stress from finishing up my Market Degree and taking ¬†A LOT of classes that were really difficult, stress from working two jobs along with going to school, stress from failing to keep up with my house because of my ultra busy schedule, stress from starting my own business with a moms event that I REALLY needed help with, but ended up doing most of the work myself, and the biggest stress is the custody case I am in right now because we just relocated to Florida and my ex-husband is trying to fight me on it. ¬†All of this led me to :Not Care: about what I was eating or my workout routine. ¬†I went from thin and feeling great because I was working out and eating right to the complete opposite… Over eating and a huge lack of physical activity.

This was NOT ME.  And slowly but surely, my body went from thin to overweight.  I actually weigh MORE now than I did the day I delivered my son.  I knew that I would struggle with sticking to a healthy lifestyle unless I was REALLY ready.  But I am READY!  I am ready physically and mentally to take on the Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  I need to do this for me, not for anyone else, but for me.  I feel like crap, and I am ready to work my booty off to get my healthy body back.

The stress is not gone, but is a lot less now.  I have graduated (YAY!) and instead of working two jobs and trying to keep up with the house, I am now a stay at home mom and I blog.  I am thankful to my now fiance, for the opportunity to be a stay at home mom.  And the way I see it, now is the PERFECT opportunity to make this lifestyle change!

I have everything set up and I am starting the Advocare 24 Day Challenge TODAY.  I already drank my Advocare Spark and I will be eating some yummy eggs for breakfast shortly.  I look forward to sharing my journey with you.
