What's your story?

What’s your story? 
 Some people have been asking how we even heard of Advocare, so I wanted to tell you all a little about our Advocare story!  I first started using the products about 2 years ago, after I had hit a weight loss plateau. My mom told me about a company called Advocare, that was growing like crazy in Florida and my uncle Tim had started selling it.  I did my research and saw that AdvoCare is a company that started back in 1993, and they have a product line that consists of active, energy, wellness, weight loss and performance products. They even have a “Scientific & Medical Advisory Board that ensures that all AdvoCare products are formulated with the highest quality ingredients based on the latest scientific research.”  

  So I decided I would try the 10 day cleanse and lost 4 pounds but it helped me break through my plateau and after I finished the cleanse I was able to lose another 5 pounds.  I had reached my goal weight and decided to no longer use the products.  Fast forward to July 2013, 3 months post-partum and released by my doctor to start exercising after my c-section.  I was so excited to start my running again but I couldn’t muster up the energy to go for a walk much less a run.  It was hard work chasing a 3 ½ year old and nursing my 3 month old every 2 hours!  I needed some energy and I wasn’t going to be caught drinking coffee to get some…. And then I remembered Spark, a sugar free energy drink that I drank while on the 10 day cleanse.  I got some ordered and started drinking it as soon as I got it!  Within a week I was back on the treadmill and started the couch 2 5k app!  I loved the energy and clarity spark gave me so I decided to start taking a couple other products (Catalyst, Muscle Gain, Rehydrate, Meal Replacement Shakes).  Kyle also started drinking the Spark and Meal Replacement shakes and has now stopped drinking coffee altogether!   We fell in love with the way the products made us feel and we wanted our family and friends to have the same opportunity to try them, so we decided to become Distributors this past August!  We have already heard great stories from our family and friends on the success they have had on their challenges, and it makes me so happy to know we were a part of that!    

Why I did the challenge?

  I decided to do the Advocare 24 Day Challenge because I was only 10 lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight and again hit another plateau but this time I wanted to try the entire 24 days instead of just the 10 day cleanse.  I did have to do a modified plan because I am still nursing my son.  I was so pleased with how great I felt on the Challenge and the progress I made!  Not only did I lose 7.6 lbs on the challenge but I have so much more energy, developed better eating habits and lost 20.5 inches off of my body!  I can also feel a difference in my running, my endurance and pace has been increased as well as the distances I am able to run!

If you are interested in hearing any more about Advocare or my story please feel free to contact me, I would love to chat with you and help you develop your own Advocare story!

Thank you Advocare for helping me become a Champion!
