First off, I want people to know that when I signed up to do AdvoCare, I was planning on not blogging about it. While you may be seeing the products mentioned on other blogs, I am not apart of any sort of AdvoCare “blog campaign.” This was a personal decision that my husband and I made. Good? Good!
Okay, where do I even begin?! Part One? I guess I could start by saying that Cory’s weight has never mattered to me. When I met him and fell in love with him, he was at his heaviest; when I married him, he was at his lightest.
So when he had a serious conversation with me about wanting to lose weight for good, I was listening. I know first hand how even if everyone else thinks you’re perfect, if you’re not happy with yourself, it doesn’t matter.
So I reached out to my friend Kelly after seeing her fantastic weight loss success. We chatted, and she told me all about AdvoCare. How it’s all natural. How it’s safe (she breastfed her son while taking all the supplements.) How it’s helped change her life.
I was intrigued, but also quite skeptical. Like, seriously? Give me a break.
But, Cory wanted in, and I wanted to support him, so we bought the stuff. All the while I feared that we had just flushed a hefty chunk of change down the toilet.
But now we’ve reached the end of our 24 Day Challenge and the results are in. But before we even get to the numbers, I just have to say that Kelly was right when she told me this is life changing.
I know you might be thinking: Bravo, Colleen. You were already thin, so who gives a shit that you’re still thin?
Valid point, fellow critic.
To that I’d say: I’ve suffered from terrible, terrible stomach problems for years, and now that’s all gone. No bloating, no diarrhea, no stomach cramps after eating. Are you kidding me!? That’s nothing short of a miracle in my world.
My energy is sustained throughout the day, and I’m sleeping better at night. My clothes fit perfectly and I’m comfortable. I wish you could feel how awesome I feel! (PS – You CAN.)

I was serious about planning on not blogging about this, which is showcased in the fact that our “before” pictures were taken in our underwear. I will not be posting those on the internet. You’re welcome.
