Ok everyone… High-five me! 🙂 I am done with my challenge and I have the results…..
In 24 days, I lost 24 lbs! Overall, I lost 14.5 inches (that’s combined bust, waist, hips and upper leg.)
So the question you may ask yourself is: Does the Advocare 24 day challenge work? I would say yes. I am living proof. Now granted, I do not know if the supplements I took are what really helped or if cutting down what I ate is all I needed to do. Either way, the challenge kick-started me to do both and the results are successful.
I would like to talk a little about the 24 day challenge. I know that when I started it, I spent a lot of time googling things I can eat and reviews, etc. Every blog I read mentioned that when you are the cleanse phase that the Fiber drink was horrible and they were glad it was only for a few days of the cleanse. That always confused me because mine was to be taken every day during the cleanse and mine had no taste. So I realized, they have changed the Fiber drink. I got the one with no flavor and just mixed it with my fruit punch spark in the morning. I had no problems with it. Another thing I read was that a lot of people were worried that by doing a cleanse they would be running to the bathroom every five minutes to go “number 2.” That was not the case. Even with all the extra fiber, that part of my life was pretty normal. However, upping my water intake plus the extra caffeine in the spark did make me have to go “number 1” pretty much all the time! I got used to it after a while and do not go as often now. Another thing I read was that some people did not like the taste of the shakes. I don’t know if they changed those as well, but the chocolate shake tasted just like a regular chocolate shake. It was so good. Since my coach wants me to stay on the shakes, I actually just bought vanilla and chocolate peanut butter. The last thing I want to mention is that I had no side effects from all the supplements.. I read that some people developed rashes and others got sick from all the vitamins. I don’t know if those people have allergies to some of the ingredients or what but I had no problem.
I will continue this blog because even though my challenge is over my “weight loss journey” (as they would say on a reality show) is not. I may not post every single day anymore, but I will hopefully entertain you with my trials and tribulations!
