On February 1, 2015 I started my Advocare 24 Day Challenge. Weighing in at 228 lbs with a chest size of 49 inches, waist 41 inches, hips 44 inches, and thigh at 23 inches. I was really excited to begin this challenge because I knew it would give me the motivation I personally needed to begin my journey to my goal weight of 180 lbs.
The “Cleanse Phase” allowed my body to feel renewed and energized as I dropped 4 lbs. and 2.5 inches total in that first ten days. My mornings began with a Spark instead of coffee which gave me more energy and focus then the coffee every did. I also chose to continue my cardio and weight training that started on January 1st of this year.
During the “Max Phase”, days 11 through 24, I got to enjoy the chocolate meal replacement shakes every morning and one afternoon I decided to mix it in with a bowl of plain low fat organic yogurt. Wow! What a treat and I even shared it with my wife.
The Advocare 24 Day Challenge was just that… A Challenge. It has been one of the most rewarding challenges in my life. I am on a journey now and there are no plans to look back. On day 25, I weighed in at 220 lbs. with an amazing 4 total inches lost. That may not sound like much but it feels amazing and I’m not even done here. Like I mentioned earlier, my goal is to be at 180 lbs. and I’m going to do it within the first 90 days of using these great products.
Below is a photo of my day one compared with my day 24. This is just a snapshot of my journey with Advocare but there are many more who have been on the same journey. Here is another great Advocare story of our friends TJ and Missy Houske.
