Dona Young - Illinois
In 1998, my husband and I decided that we were finished having children after the birth of our son. I wanted to trim off just a few extra baby pounds, but nothing I tried really worked. Truthfully, I didn't stick to anything. I was depressed knowing I weighed more than I did when I was nine months pregnant with our first daughter. I weighed 185 pounds and was tired, unmotivated and miserable.
In May 2002, my husband took a picture of me as a whopping size 14/16. I didn't want my picture taken, but that evening my life changed. My sister-in-law told me about a new product she was taking that added energy and vitality to her life.
I was hesitant, but she gave me MNS® Max Energy to try. In only two days, I felt a difference. By December of that year, I was down to a size 10. I was so happy! I had lost about 30 pounds and added more muscle. I continued with the MNS® Max Energy and ADVOCARE® SPARK™, using the Herbal Cleanse every 90 days and supplementing with Carb-Ease™, ProBiotic RESTORE™ and CATALYST™. The pounds just melted off. By April 2003, I had shrunk to a size 4! I was down to 120 pounds and felt terrific about going to the beach that year.
Two years later, I'm happy to say I've kept the weight off and am still using AdvoCare products. In addition to AdvoCare, I've taken up running and weight training, which I've been doing for about a year and a half now. Because of AdvoCare, I was able to motivate myself to get up and move! The confidence and self-esteem I have now are remarkable. I have fun, love to meet new people and have more energy for my kids, my husband and my LIFE. It's truly a wonderful feeling for me!
