As some of you may remember, Carissa, after months of considering the challenge, she finally mustered up the courage and the finances to try it out. She was definitely skeptical at first. But, since day 2, I have received email after email about how amazing she feels and just an overall disbelief in how these products really work. When we first introduced you to Carissa, she was 165.
When we did her second update, she was down to 158. Most importantly, she had already lost about 8 inches at this time and it had only been 11 days! Her energy was out of this world and for the first time in a long time, she felt healthy and like she had a clean slate to work with.
I just heard from Carissa yesterday, letting me know that in addition to losing 7 pounds, she has now lost 15.5 inches!!! That is seriously crazy and she said her clothes no longer fit. She is so excited to be able to go and try on/buy new clothes. As you can see in these pictures. AdvoCare not only helped her detox and lose weight, it also brought a glow and joy to her face that wasn't there before.
Carissa has come a long way in life and I am super proud of her! I know she will continue to use some of the products and will only get smaller. But even more important than that, she is now aware of the junk she was putting in her body and is on a better path to wholeness!
However, if you email me, I can formulate a specific plan for you. I will be your cheerleader and make sure you succeed. I can hold you accountable, plan grocery lists and menu's and text you encouraging notes til you wanna chuck your cell phone out the window.
And if you are concerned about the price, just ask Carissa or myself how we actually SAVED money by doing the challenge. Funny how when you aren't eating out or driving through Starbucks, just how much money you do save!
Let's cheer Carissa on by leaving a comment and congratulating her on her success! I have a feeling this won't be the last time you see her! (go look back at these links..she has come so far!)
This girl is smokin hot! check out the previous links for how different she looks!
As you read last week, a friend of mine from High School embarked on a 10 day cleanse.
We are so happy to report that after her cleanse, she has lost 7 inches and 4 pounds. She said she was admittedly shocked and very excited!
We are super proud of Carissa and wish her well on her continuing journey to health.
I will actually be ordering a cleanse myself on Friday. After being on pain meds for a month and eating my weight in casseroles and lasagna, my body is crying out to be cleansed. What I truly love is not only the inches and pounds lost, but knowing that all of those toxins are being released and emptied out priming my body for optimal nutrition.
This cleanse is actually a very gentle cleanse compared to those on the market and much to all of my client's happiness, you DO get to eat! I was surprised when I got this question from so many people. My response is always the same. It goes something like this "I don't know about you, but this girl's gotta eat!"
So join me in congratulating Carissa! She rocked this cleanse, kicked her unhealthy habits butt and didn't take names. She starts bootcamp next month so check back for more updates to track her progress!
Meet Carissa! Carissa is a Mississippi girl like myself and we actually went to high school together. She was a grade above me and at the time, that probably made me envious. Ah-to be a teenager again. You can't wait to be an adult. Only to then wish you were younger when out of nowhere, you are sucker punched with all of the responsibility, bill paying, cortisol creeping, metabolism slowing, and wonder why your mama never warned you. Oh wait, she did but since you knew everything, you just turned up your headphones and rolled your eyes.
Yes, I just said headphones. I must be like 86.
Carissa's journey to health is an admirable one. She's overcome major obstacles in her life. After high school, she found herself in the wrong crowd and her life began to spiral out of control. She was destroying herself and her relationships with family and friends. She hit rock bottom.
The good thing about falling that far is that there is nowhere to go but up (but only if you are brave enough for the climb) However, without a support system and a relationship with God, she knew she would not make it to the top of that hill. But, one day at a time, she was able to take control of her life and begin to love and nurture herself. She met and married a wonderful man and is enjoying life with him and her beautiful girls. Her life is being restored to wholeness-spiritually, physically, emotionally and mentally.
Carissa and I reconnected through Facebook and once she saw all of the success my clients were having so she decided to take the plunge and try it out. She begins her 10 day detox tomorrow then moves onto the 14 day max phase. I am so excited because I know how this will enhance her well being and radically change her life. She will immediately feel better, less sluggish, and experience an overall more enthusiastic and energized skip in her step.
We will chart her accomplishments weekly on the blog so please join me in supporting her! Leave a comment and cheer her on, along the way.
