Starting January 1st I am doing another Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  And I’m inviting YOU to join me.

My husband did the challenge first two years ago.  I was skeptical and thought I would just continue to eat healthy and work out along side him.  When I had only lost 3 pounds in 24 days and he lost 15 and looked like this…I knew I had to try it.  Since that first challenge two years ago he has lost a total of 45 pounds and has kept it off!

I have great results as well.   During my last challenge I lost 12 pounds, 5% body fat, 5 inches, and a pant size!  And felt truly amazing!

My Mom lost 25 pounds during the course of the challenge.  She has completely changed her lifestyle, continued with the products, and has lost a total of 60 pounds.  So proud of her.

My friend, Lauren, also tried the Challenge after reading about how much I loved it.  She had some pretty incredible results herself.  And after continuing the products for a year and a half you should see her now.  She looks incredible!

Last fall I was having trouble squeezing into my jeans and finally broke down and bought the next size up but swore to myself it wasn’t permanent and that I would lose the weight.  As summer came to a close this year I couldn’t wait to wear fall clothing again. That was until I tried to put on my largest pair of jeans…and they didn’t fit. I was furious with myself that I had put my health on the back burner and had gained 20lbs over the course of the last year. Enough was enough and I decided I was going to do a 24 day challenge.  I had incredible results and wanted to share with you my Advocare 24 Day Challenge Before and After.

Today is day 24.  I lost a total of TWELVE POUNDS, 5 % BODY FAT, 5 INCHES, and a pant size!  What’s even better?  That I feel amazing.  Full of energy to chase around my kiddos and putting myself back up at the top of that priority list feels pretty incredible.  Taking time each day for ME to exercise, relieve stress, and becoming a happier person overall.

After Thanksgiving last week I am feeling like I could start another Advocare 24 Day Challenge today!  But, I am planning to wait until after the hustle & bustle (and delicious food) that Christmas brings.  Lauren of Hey Lauren Rene, Samantha of Young Family Old House, and I hosted a group challenge in September and it went surprisingly well.  We created a secret Facebook group as a source of support and inspiration.  We help hold one another accountable, it’s a place to get meal ideas, ask questions, and raise each other up.  The group has now grown to over 150 people which blows me away!  That means over 150 people within our circle have taken strides to get healthy.  So amazing!

Our next group challenge will begin January 1, 2014.

To join simply purchase the Advocare 24 Day Challenge via the link below.  I will forward you the instructions as well as give you some pointers.

Below is one of my favorite before & after pictures from a challenger within our group.  Doesn’t she look amazing?

You can view more before & after pictures HERE.   Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

I am finished with my Advocare 24 Day Challenge.  Excuse the hot mess “I just rolled out of bed” look in my before & after pictures.  Clearly I don’t fix myself up to go to the gym. :)

To be completely honest I ended a few days early.  I knew that while at the Influence Conference we were going to be fed breakfast & lunch.  And I let myself splurge a little (or a lot).  But, I came home ready to jump back on the bandwagon.

Here is my final weigh in:

Before – 125 lbs

After – 120 lbs

Although I didn’t see a huge difference in the scale I lost inches.  I went down an entire size in jeans and I can see it in my waist and thighs.  Besides, weight is just a number to me.  What matters most is how I look and feel.  Which is amazing.  My energy level is much higher than before!
