I have always been active in my jobs and in my personal life, but as I got older my metabolism slowed and I felt more tired. I knew I needed better nutrition and supplements. The first time I tried an Advocare Spark and Catalyst, I took 6 minutes off my 10-mile bike time! That’s when I knew these products really work and I needed to learn more about them.
Sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day combined with an almost 2-hour commute, was horrible for my well-being and physique. My butt started to expand, and my clothes got tight. I was getting home late and usually it was too dark to go for a run. Within 7 months, I couldn’t fit into half my clothes.
January was just around the corner, and I made a New Year’s Resolution to get back into running and exercising. It turned out to be my busiest month at work. I had 3 days off total that whole month. I was driving to work with my pants undone because they were so uncomfortable.
My Defining Moment
I drove to work with my pants undone as usual. I stepped out of the car and was buttoning my pants when my general manager drove by and honked his horn. That was it. I HAD to do something. My expanding waistline was not going to rule my life.
My friend Kim was always posting results of people that lost weight and inches on the Advocare 24 Day Jumpstart. I thought, if they can do it, so could I. Since I already had an Advocare discount, it was easy to order, and I called Kim to let her know I was going to do the 24 Day Jumpstart. She offered to help coach me, and I agreed.
In the first 4 days, I noticed I had more energy. On Day 10, I drove to work, got out to button my pants, and realized they were already buttoned! On Day 24, I fit into a pair of pants I hadn’t worn in 6 months! In 24 days I lost 8 pounds and 6 inches. I was so excited (about my pants fitting) I told everyone at work!
A month later, with just sticking with the vitamins, shakes and Spark, I dropped another 2 pounds without even trying!
In the spring of 2014, I coached the #1 and #2 recipients of a Transition Challenge. They lost 13 pounds, 15 inches, and 10 pounds 8 inches respectfully.
In 2015, I paid off $15,000 of debt.
In 2016, my husband and I went to Asia on a 3-week vacation. Twice.
Today, I have quit my corporate job, and enjoy working a few hours a week while focusing on writing and traveling.
Advocare has been more to me than just a weight loss/management system. It’s become a passion that helps me help others, whether they are looking for weight loss, better sports performance, or a second stream of income to pay off debt.
