Are you the type of person who makes New Years resolutions? I’m not, but I am huge into setting goals for the coming year – for the family, our marriage, books to read, travel, finances, and health. I remember talking goals this time last year with Lauren and Liz, and Lauren mentioned trying cleanses, and how she really wanted to try the 24 Day Challenge. I just knew I could lose the weight on my own – all you have to do is eat real food and exercise, right? We both got elliptical machines for Christmas, and set on our way.
Six months later, my body hadn’t really changed, but Lauren was a completely different person – not just her weight and appearance, but her energy level and enthusiasm was completely infectious. She had also turned her passion for Advocare into a business. It was at this point that I knew I had to try it.
I started my first challenge in May, and by June, I had noticeable results. I kept using the products I loved, feeling great, and sharing with friends and family. Since this time last year, I’ve lost 18 pounds according to my doctor’s scale, but really it has been so much more than that. I’ve gained more confidence in myself and in my body, I actually enjoy choosing what I will wear (most days) instead of trying to choose what is the most slimming, and I’ve helped friends and family do the same.
In September, Lauren, Jenny, and I hosted a group challenge and created a Facebook group for all the participants. Our group keeps growing, and we now have over 150 people – from all over the country, in their 20′s to 60′s, all committed to taking charge of their health. We are posting meal plans, work outs, and encouragement daily.
We are hosting another group 24 Day Challenge starting on January 1. If you’ve been watching and waiting, now is your time to join. The best part of Advocare for me is helping other people change their lives for the better – through losing weight, gaining energy, and feeling better. Whatever your goal, it would be an honor to help you get there. To learn more about the 24 Day Challenge, click here.
