My Weight Loss Update…Down 15 LBS!!!!

Several of you wanted to wait and see my progress a few weeks after the challenge to see if I kept it off.  I totally get that skepticism….Remember, I told you I was #1 skeptic!! (Heck, after running 40+ miles a week and not losing a single pound, who wouldn’t be?)  I lost 6 lbs and two pants sizes on the 24 Day Challenge!!! I LOVED saying goodbye to all those inches and HELLO to all the new energy!

I  ended my 24 day challenge back in March, so I am going on 3 months now. (Ready to do another one!) I have stayed on several of the products because I absolutely LOVE them, and I am still losing and toning! I feel PHENOMENAL!
So here are my numbers as of TODAY. For those of you wondering, YES, I kept it off, AND MORE.
When I first started the challenge, I weighed 146.

I went for my physical this morning (didn’t even pass out during the blood work….took it like a champ! ha!)…And I am PUMPED to report that my blood pressure was 98/60….and my weight was 131!!! I almost fell out in the floor!!! I am at my lowest weight since MIDDLE SCHOOL! And I am knockin’ on the door of the 120’s!!! I’ll get the rest of my numbers back from the lab in a couple days and I’m super anxious to hear about them as well. 15 lbs lighter! CRAZY!! I didn’t even know I had 15 lbs to lose!!!!!
This was taken today…

See a difference???
(It’s easier to tell in bathing suit pics…) Now don’t get me wrong…I carry my weight well and wasn’t unhappy with my body back at 146. But can I just say how much I am LOVING all my lean muscles, glimpses of some abs I haven’t seen in forever, and being so much more tone and defined?? Big Jon’s not complaining either….(just sayin’! He loves me at any size, but he’s diggin this!)
If you’ve been looking to jump start some weight loss, break through a plateau, lean out or tone up, get more defined, perform better, or just improve your overall health and wellness, I want to highly recommend for you to check out the 24 day challenge. It is a PHENOMENAL starting point for everyone, no matter the goals. You get to try products from three of the five incredible lines Advocare has to offer, and I have no doubt if you pair it with some healthy lifestyle changes, you WILL see results!!
It is NOT a fad diet. (In fact, for those of you who are trying to starve yourself thin or follow some crazy diet, you’re being completely counteractive to your metabolism.) It’s HIGH QUALITY, natural, supplements designed to fill in nutritional gaps. It’s totally sustainable because it ISN’T a fad diet….but because it’s about NUTRITION: vitamins, minerals, nutrients, etc. that help your body perform and function like it’s designed to do.
Please let me know if you have any questions. To me, it’s an absolute NO BRAINER and I don’t know what people are waiting on! I sat in a room tonight and listened to testimonial after testimonial about people who have lost weight and KEPT IT OFF with Advocare. One of the girls there lost 90 POUNDS over the past several years by pairing these nutritional supplements with a healthy lifestyle change! Unbelievable, yet TOTALLY possible!!
You can order by clicking Shop Adovcare in the upper right hand corner on my blog….by clicking on THIS LINK….or by becoming a member yourself! That’s a no brainer in my opinion because you get a 20% (up to 40%) discount on products, + $50 worth of free Spark & Slam just for becoming a member! BECOME a MEMBER, and you’re ready to start ordering at your 20% discount right away.
(**I really recommend adding in Catalyst & ThermoPlus on day 11 as well!)
You all know how hard core I am about healthy lifestyles and DISEASE PREVENTION. Make the choice today to invest in your health!! This has been life changing for me and my family. (My family has lost over 50+ lbs since March! LOVE that!!!!)
If you’re new here and have no clue what the 24 Day Challenge is, check out this short video...It explains it really well.
Man, it’s never felt SO GOOD to be a “LOSER!!”

So inspired by this! You look amazing! I am actually starting the MNS trim 14 day suppliments in the morning. I'm excited! My cousin did the 24 day challenge and he has lost 75 pounds since December - it's pretty amazing!

Your body was rockin back at the marathon and your wedding. Muscular and fit. This seems to be a new look adn good look but a different one. What is your goal to look like? Are you interested in getting into body building? Just curious and please dont take this as a mean post! Just a complement and question :) also, when it comes time for babies are you still going to take these supplements? Just curious because im planning on starting a family next year and was thinking about all of this.

Holly said...

You look soo good!!! My 24day challenge should be delivered today and cant wait to start it! Thanks for all your inspiration.

Hey! So I have taken some advocare products before, but I think it they were just vitamin suppliments-it didn't advertise or help with weight loss, but I'm sure they have different products. What would you recommend exactly? I would love something to help (safely) boost weight loss combined with exercise. Hook a girl up!! :)

Jamie said...

Way to go girl! You look great!

Hey Danielle! I'm thinking of purchasing the 24 day challenge and I'm wondering what kind of workout routine you kept while on it? Thanks!

Amy- Isn't it incredible?? I have seen some friends with absolutely INCREDIBLE results too!

Kate- Not anymore....just taking the basics from the Max phase, but still taking Catalyst, ThermoPlus, & Leptilean.

Anonymous- We are getting ready to start thinking about trying for babies, so I want to be in THE BEST shape of my life so I'll put myself in the best possible situation for delivery and bounce back faster.

Emily- I'm going to look for your e-mail address so I can e-mail you. They have 5 lines, and one of them is weight loss. It helped me bust through my plateau! I would LOVE to tell you more! If you read this, e-mail me at rainey.danielle@yahoo.com.

Chlo- Shoot me an e-mail! rainey.danielle@yahoo.com I searched for yours but couldn't find it. I work out with body weight exercises and HIIT 4-5 times a week. I can tell you more in an e-mail.

And everybody else, THANK YOU for the kind words and encouragement!! I truly feel better than ever!!!

I completed the 24 day challenge in March and lost about 12 pounds and dropped 2 pant sizes. I felt the best I had in a really long time. I have done a pretty decent job of keeping it off, but I don't feel as good about my self right now. I'm training for my 3rd half marathon, but I feel like there are some unwanted pounds I want to lose and I just want to feel as good as I did after I finished the challenge. I'm not sure where to go from here. Do I start back over with the challenge or with something else?

I just found your blog today, and this is so awesome! I, too, am a runner, and finally signed up for my first full marathon in April. I also have not lost a SINGLE pound from running two years. I have consciously made better food choices, too. I'm interested after reading your blog posts about how much success you've had with Advocare. I have tried just about everything in the book for supplement companies. I'm intrigued by your story and want to give Advocare a try. Thanks for such uplifting posts!
