Mixer Tuesday!

Hello everyone! Sorry I have been gone for a while and will probably disappear again until next year. This is my busy time at work. I barely have time to spend with Brad and I surely don't want to spend the little time I do have "blogging". I am sure you all understand. I did want you all to know that we are still doing Advocare. I love their products so much that I don't think I will ever quit taking them. We are having a mixer Tuesday, September 28th at 6:30 pm. I really hope you will come. Eric Whitlow is going to be here speaking and I know it will be very informative. I can't wait to learn more about advocare. So far I have lost 25lbs. I still have a long way to go, but I am DOING IT! I really don't think I would be as successful if it wasn't for advocare.

Come see me Tuesday! Bring a friend...or a few! You will be so glad you did!

Oh, one more thing. Please say a prayer for my friend Kristee Dowling and her sweet baby girl Lydia!!!!!

Tired of 20!!!!!

I am stuck at 20 lbs. I will gain a pound or two, then lose that pound or two, but I can't seem to get to 21 lbs. It is very frustrating, but I am going to keep taking my MNS supplements and drinking my shakes. Maybe, just maybe it will start falling off again. Makes me MAD!!!!

Despite my complaining, I am so very thankful for the 20 I have lost!

So I have seen a photo

capital "O" capital "M" capital "G". I have just seen a picture of myself at a function that took place over the weekend. First of all, I hate being in a picture and second of all who is that girl looking back at me? I am going to "RUN, Forrest, RUN" tomorrow. GROSS. I have a looooonnngggggg way to go, but guess what??? ...that gave me my motivation to get through the week.

I am so excited that I just can't hide it!

Since Sunday I have lost 3 more pounds for a total of 20 a month! I love, love, love advocare. I wouldn't be doing so good without their products. It sounds strange or hokey, but true. There is something magical about them. I can't explain it, but I do know that I have felt better this past month than I have in the last 15 years. I have a desire to eat healthy, fresh foods. I have NEVER EVER been like that before. Well, I still don't love all veggies, but I am definitely eating more of the ones I do like.

Falling and I MUST get back up

Goodness GRACIOUS I have been BAD. Had margaritas Friday and it was all downhill from there. My eating and exercise was terrible the entire weekend. I will say that I quickly jumped back on the wagon Monday when I got on that scale. I have lost what I gained, but I could be down even more had I behaved myself. WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!?!?!? I do love a margarita.

I will tell you all a funny story...when we were at the mexican restaurant enjoying our delicious margaritas, Brad said, "look Molly just walked it". I about choked on a chip (which I shouldn't have been eating). Not to mention the pitcher of margaritas were over half gone. He was kidding about Molly walking in, but we cracked up about it because we knew we shouldn't have been in there, but it sure was great. Those of you who don't know Molly, she is an advocare professional :o) and has lost a ton of weight using advocare's products. I found some of that weight she lost at the mexican restaurant.

I have learned my lesson...I hope.

One goal down, many more to go

Well, my first goal was to get thru the 24 day challenge and I DID THAT! My next goal is to lose 30 lbs. Hummmm.....wonder if it is going to be as easy as the first 17 lbs. Doubtful, but I am going to do it! You wait and see.

It ain't over until the SKINNY lady sings

I have officially finished the 24 day challenge!

Here's the skinny...

I've lost 17 total pounds and 13.5 inches all over. I have lost 4 inches in my waist alone. I had to measure and recalculate twice because I couldn't believe it! These measurements are only for the last 11 days, because I forgot to measure on day one of the cleanse. I am so mad at myself for not doing it the first day. This was the easiest diet I have ever done, if I should even call it a diet. If I can do it...ANYONE can do it.

What's next you may be wondering. I am going to keep doing what I am doing. Drinking meal replacement shakes, taking 3 Catalyst 2 times a day, taking Thermo plus, taking all the wonderful supplements in the MNS 3 pack, continuing to eat tons of fruits and veggies and lean meats, oh...we can't forget about Spark and Slam - I am officially addicted to them.

I will continue taking advocare products for the rest of my life. I love them so much. I have never been one that can take multi-vitamins or prenatal vitamins for that matter, because they upset my stomach terribly. I wasn't sure when I started taking advocare products that they wouldn't do the same. Thankfully they didn't. I can honestly say that I am taking the right steps to changing my lifestyle to a healthy one thanks to advocare. If I could meet Mr. Advocare, I would give him a great big hug and kiss!

This journey really has just begun...
