This is not really an "after" because I have a long way to go but I am getting there.

Most of my readers have never met me so I am truly putting myself out there to the world.

In the spring I was at my bottom, if I had thought I was at the bottom before, I didn't know what the bottom truly was until last April.  I visited my doctor and we discussed Gastric Bypass.  I went to a meeting to learn about GB and was told that with my BMI, my diabetes, and high blood pressure that I was morbidly obese.  Talk about a slap in the face.  People could not believe it when I told them what I had learned.

I had made my mind up that I was going to diet and exercise again because my insurance did not cover GB surgery of any kind or any kind of help with weight loss.  So, I started the Couch to 5k program AGAIN!  Since this was my 3 or 4th attempt I knew I'd have to do something different.  I had remembered a friend of mine talking to me about some amazing products she had tried and so I called her.

I signed up at the end of June to start what is called the 24 Day Challenge and when it arrived, I consulted her, took my measurements and started the next day.  I felt amazing from day one!  I lost 13" in the first 10 days.  I was not as concerned with pounds because I new I would be gaining muscle with my workouts.

Fast forward to this week.  I have lost around 20" and a little over 20 pounds and a little over 2 months.   The difference between my past attempts and this attempt has not been my diet but the products.   

Also, my performance has been most impressive.  Last year I went to the gym 3 -4 times a week for several hours and you can see at left my peak performance...then I went to work in October and STOPPED exercising.  In May I began again and started Advocare Products in July...notice the difference?  This stuff is too good not to share...I'll shout it to the roof tops!

I signed up to become a distributor.  Initially, because I wanted to save $ and now because I want to share it with others and both of those things have turned into HOPE for my future.  If you have questions, please ask...if you want to try the products, please start here...  I highly recommend you educate yourself on any nutritional products before buying, ask questions and do your research.  Learn more about the company here.


  1. Love Advocare!! Im a distributor as well and found that most people here in Georgia have not heard of it, So they are skeptical. I did the 24 day challenge back in Feb. and lost 16 lbs and 10 inches but allowed some circumstances to change things for the negative. However, I'm ready to the 24 day challenge again and SUPER excited, I love Advocare and have never felt that good...I'm also not sure I had ever put that much "good" into my body either! lol :) Great job on your loss and Im cheering you on to reach your goals! ;) We CAN do this! :)

Show the love. Major love!
