I was on SP a long time ago, tried SP, tried WW, done Advocare. But frankly I never put my heart in it. I HATE having to constantly think about food. But now my hubs is on the Advocare product and Team Evolve diet, so he can fix all my food for me :) <BR> <BR> Added bonus, my 18 year-old daughter who was in a terrible accident last year and can no longer exercise like she wants to, and lives at home home-schooling her senior year which she missed last year, is also start...

She's a busy mom of 2 young children, and a restaurant owner. I'm retired, and recently widowed. I'm not sure what I expect, but I hope this will help me to feel better. The weight loss would be an added bonus, since sticking to a diet is not something I'm good at.

I'm new to AdvoCare and started day 1 of my 24 day challenge this morning. Everything was going great, until I got to the Fiber Drink. I chugged half of it, while gagging all the way through, but I just couldn't do the rest. Then I was nauseous for about an hour and really struggled through the breakfast replacement shake even though it didn't taste bad at all. I'm really dreading trying the fiber again tomorrow, I'm afraid I won't make it through without becoming sick...(pleasant...

I'm Lacey, I'm from Seattle, and I'm on day 11 of my 24 day challenge. I just got done with the 10 day cleanse and I'm super stoked to see what the next 13 days results in! After the 10 day cleanse I am down 7lbs and 16 inches. The weight I figured would come off, but the inches, I didn't see that one coming! I'm pretty excited to see what else I can do! Anyways, I just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself!
