Advocare-24 day challenge part one!

I've never been a dieter...I've had moments where I'll try to give up diet coke or eat healthier or work out, but I've never stuck with a plan.  That changed 10 days go.  I started the Advocare 24 day challenge and dove in.  I started it on March 2 and this was significant for me because it is one month before the 4th anniversary of when I lost my mom.  I always promise myself that I will get healthier every year around this time.  I think this year I will make that happen!  The first 10 days of the 24 day challenge is a cleanse phase and I just finished that.  The thing I love about Advocare it is about eating healthy and taking good vitamins/supplements.  I've already lost 4 pounds and 2+ inches--but the biggest victory...I cut out Diet Coke completely!  Instead I've been drinking 10+ glasses of water per day.  We've also swapped eating out for cooking healthy meals at home and when we do eat out we really think through healthy options.  I didn't give food much thought before, I just grabbed what was convenient. I'm now being thoughtful about what would be good for me.  I'm up to 5-7 fruits/veggies per day.  Here is a before and after with just 10 days into the program.
Ryan started the challenge too!  He is only 4 days into his challenge  and he is already starting to see results! If anyone is interested in learning more, I'd be happy to talk more about Advocare.  I was hesitant before I started, but it has been a good fit for us!
