Question How much weight have you lost so far?

Hey everyone,

How is your weight loss going? I have hit 50 pounds lost in the last 2.5 years and feel great!! No more eating Tums like they were candies for my heartburn. No more trying to always be hiding my belly. lol

I hope that you all are having success with your weight loss goals.

Cheers

I've lost 30lbs. Took a year, but it was worth it! I wish I could go back to my self 10 years ago and say, "Hey it's so worth it!" haha

One of my sneaky tricks is putting cayenne pepper on everything. I like spicy so this works for me.

That is awesome!! Keep going. I can't remember the last time that I weighed this much. At least 15 years. I too have started adding spice to everything. Also cinnamon and mustard seed with things too. They all are supposed to speed up out metabolism and burn calories.

Cheers

I ended up losing 20lbs with the Challenge i did! I am only 10lbs away to my goal weight! My husband and I have been doing really well with portion control and daily exercise. I honestly think doing challenges is the best way for me to stay on track. It's small goals that I am setting for myself and being able to complete them is such a reward. I found a new challenge coming by beachbody called the 21 day fix- 21 Day Fix Program Coming Soon! - Beachbody.com . Autumn Calabrese is the trainer for this program and let me tell you she is in amazing shape! I can only hope to look like her one day lol. If anyone wants to do it with me I can keep you posted when I hear any news of the release date.

I am down about 150 pounds in the past 3.5 years although I never really looked like I needed to lose that much. It's a big deal because I have a medical issue that makes it very difficult to exercise. I wouldn't mind losing another 20 pounds but I am quite happy with how I look now so I'm not actively trying to lose weight lol!

Thumbs up Awesome results ladies.

I am happy for your weight loss success. Keep up the good work. I have a few more pounds of fat to lose before I start really building some lean muscle. I will be 40 in December and plan on looking the best that I ever have in my life.

Cheers
Matt

I have lost 30 in a couple of months on a challenge I did. I haven't felt this good since highschool, plenty of energy to get me through the day instead of coming home and passing out, I'm glad I took the leap I did! Advocare has really helped me see a brighter future.

Thumbs up Congratulations on your weight loss everyone.

Congratulations on your weight loss everyone. It feels great doesn't it? For those of you who are still trying to lose your extra weight, don't give up. You can do it. Believe me if I can do it you can too. Was it easy, no, was it worth it, yes!

Watch what you are putting into your bodies. That was one of the biggest things for me was changing the way that I was eating.

Cheers
