My Advocare 24 Day Challenge: Results, Thoughts & Next Steps

Advocare 24 Day Challenge
In March, I wrote this post about kickstarting my weight loss journey with the Advocare 24 Day Challenge. I'm proud to announce, that more than 24 days later, I have completed the Challenge and I feel better than ever! This is just step one on my journey to look and feel my best on my wedding day (which is less than 6 months away!!) So, to follow up on my recent posts, I wanted to share with you my thoughts, feelings and results of the challenge! Perhaps you are ready to make a healthy change and my hope is that this helps you in your own journey!!!

So, after 24 Days, here are my concrete results:

  • 12 POUNDS DOWN
  • 18 INCHES LOST

Woohoo! The place that I noticed an immediate difference was in my face so check out a few of these pictures! Such a huge difference in a short amount of time! Stay tuned for some full body before and after photos soon!

Not to mention, I've seen major differences in the way I feel since beginning the challenge. I have far less acid reflux, far MORE energy and of course, I feel super confident! I really feel like this was a great jumpstart to achieving my goal by October. 

My Overall Challenge Thoughts:
  • It is really is a lifestyle change, so you're not expected to continue such a strict program forever (I mean, c'mon- it's unrealistic to never eat another piece of pizza again!) 
  • Preparation is key- I avoided a lot of temptation by making sure I had food already prepared for the following day.
  • Eating out isn't really that hard because your food options are not as limited as you may think!
  • I was NEVER hungry because I was eating large portions 5 times per day!
  • The Advocare products are just added supplements, so you don't have to make any long-term commitments to using the products forever.
  • Trust me, if I can do this, SO CAN YOU!!!
I'm really looking forward to the next chapter of this journey! What are my next steps? I'm going to continue taking select Advocare supplements like the Spark, Meal Replacement Shakes and vitamin MNS packs. I'm also going to continue on the same eating plan, while being a little less strict and making it fit into my busy life! 

This is only the beginning and I'm super excited to continue on the Advocare program until I achieve all of my goals! Interested in hearing about what Advocare can do for you? Check out my website or email me to chat- mbt5036@gmail.com

And once again, a huge shout out and thank you to my Advocare coach (who also happens to be my best friend and #1 supporter) Amy Showers for helping me achieve my goals! She's amazing and can help you too!
