24 Day Challenge Results

We had our first 24 Day Challenge Contest in August and it was just great to see the awesome results. As you know we have done the 24 Day Challenge before but this time we started it off with a 24 Day Challenge Seminar which was Free to anyone who wanted to come hear the great information. Those that wanted to start (I think only 2 out of the 18 ended up not starting this time around) were all in a group 24 Day Challenge Contest. We had 15 people participate. A couple actually got in a week late but were not eligible for the prizes. They lost 19 pounds and 11 pounds!
All and all, we are very excited about this program as it has been able to add MORE to what we do and GIVE people want they are needing out of a program.
I encourage you to read the stories and be motivated to sign up for the next 24 Day Challenge Free Seminar on September 29th.

It is important to know that this program is for everyone. It is really more about making healthier choices, forming healthier habits, and making small changes in order to help you look better, feel better, and perform better.

Chris’s Take on the 24 Day Challenge

1. Name, where you are from, and what you do?
From Highland Village, where I work in the mortgage business for the last 10 years. I am also in the process of becoming a personal trainer.

2. Where where you before the 24 Day Challenge and
why did you decide to join the 24 Day Challenge?.

I started getting back in to working out on my 40th birthday back in February of 2010. I read up on the 24 day challenge and found the overall focus on fitness very interesting compared to some of the other challenges that focus strictly on working out or strictly on diet.

3. What was your impression with the first few days of the 24 Day Challenge?-
I was excited by the 24 day challenge from the beginning. I had never really done a “cleansing” before. As for the eating schedule, I was already pretty much on a five meal a day schedule whenever possible.

4. How is the 24 Day Challenge program unique – why did you enjoy it – why is it different than other programs you have tried?
The “cleanse” stage was unique to the 24 day challenge. I think that it helped prepare my body for the vitamins. Most other programs that I have tried do not have a cleansing stage.

5. What results and benefits you have received from the 24 Day Challenge?-
I lost 6  pounds and  I noticed a significant difference after the first week in the way that I felt and the way that I was sleeping. I was sleeping more soundly after the first week of cleansing and clean eating. I also noticed  an increase in energy especially during the evening hours.

6 What  did you like best about the 24 Day Challenge?-
The thing that I liked most about the 24 day challenge was the structure and the fact that someone was there to assist with questions and guidance throughout its entirety.

24 Day Challenge 3rd Place winner

Kineta English-White – Lost 8.2 pounds and 4% body fat

KinetaBeforeAfterF
Kineta lost 8.2 Pounds and 4 % body fat in just 24 Days.

1. Name, where you are from, and what you do?

Kineta English-White, from Stone Mountain, GA. I am a Certified Pharmacy Technician for DaVita Pharmacy.

2. Where where you before the 24 Day Challenge and why did you decide to join the 24 Day Challenge?

Let me go all the way back to where I was prior to starting boot camp. I was always blessed with a high metabolism, but no one warns you that having a child and getting older can alter that a little. Plus I have always been the girl that went to the gym just so I could where the cute workout clothes and I NEVER wanted to sweat!! But one month of Get You in Shape COMPLETELY changed my entire view on working out and now I believe if I am NOT sweating I am not working hard enough!!

Before the 24 Day Challenge, I had just completed my first month of boot camp and I was very pleased with the inches that I had lost, but I had not lost any weight. So I felt that I had a good handle on the exercise but the nutrition was definitely lacking. So when Brad offered a “fail-proof” plan to get the nutrition under control, increase my energy level, and help me lose the weight, I jumped at the opportunity.

3. What was your impression with the first few days of the 24 Day Challenge?

The first few days were extremely hard with that Fiber Drink and stripping my entire system of all the bad foods that I was used to. But it gradually got better and now looking back, the first few days were a whole lot easier than the last few days of the challenge!!

4. How is the 24 Day Challenge program unique – why you enjoy it – why is it different than other programs you have tried?

I think what makes the system so unique is that it is a total body care system. This program did not just focus on my energy level or weight control – it addressed my lack of essential vitamins, added a pro biotic to boost what was being removed during the cleanse, and provided a step-by-step plan to help continue this new routine past 24 days.

5. What results and benefits you have received from the 24 Day Challenge?

I think the biggest physical benefit has been the loss of 8.2 pounds!!! But I have received an overall sense of better health. I feel better from the inside out. and the healthy habits learned during the challenge I can apply everyday to not only myself but my entire family.

6 What did you like best about the 24 Day Challenge?

For me the best part was the 10 Day Cleanse, well at least the last 3 days of it!! I had very strict guidelines on what I could or could not eat, and I just found that a lot easier to maintain than the later half of the Challenge. But overall it was an excellent experience!!

2. Where where you before the 24 Day Challenge and

5. What results and benefits you have received from the 24 Day Challenge?-
I lost 6  pounds  and a few inches. learned how to eat better.

6 What  did you like best about the 24 Day Challenge?-
I like the spark energy drinks and the meal replacement shakes. And although the fiber drinks were difficult to get down, I feel they were a very effective cleanse.

My story involves both the Get You In Shape Boot Camp and the Advocare 24 day challenge.

I have spent most of my adult life yo-yoing with my weight, my exercise routines, and my eating habits. While I have never been morbidly obese, I have been overweight and definitely out of shape. I understand many people struggle with their weight more than I have, but for me it has included a battle with depression. Depression almost always wins when you don’t have the tools, the knowledge and encouragement to get yourself in shape.

I have had gym memberships. I have gone, and lost some pounds, and mentally told myself “that’s it! You’re doing it! :-)”  and thought I had found the answers, only to fall back out of the routine and immediately put the weight back on, and sometimes more.  It was hard to keep myself motivated to go, and to workout by myself. It got boring sometimes, and then the gym would be so crowded at other times it was frustrating. I could not get to the pieces of equipment that I wanted and often would leave without doing a very productive workout. Then the cycle would start over. Depression, over eating, skipping the gym too often, etc, etc.

Then I found Coppell Boot Camp. I decided to see what it was all about. My gym obsessed friend declined to join with me, so I joined by myself. But I wasn’t by myself. 😀  There were many people like me there. Many motivated and pleasant people to workout with.  I IMMEDIATELY learned what I had been doing wrong all this time. Working out is good, but paying attention to what I was putting into my body was an even BIGGER eye opener for me, and ultimately is what is helping to change my mind and body.

The Get You In Shape Coppell Boot Camp offers SO much important information I can’t believe how fast I started changing. Brad and Cynthia are so involved with how everyone is doing, and I am not afraid to ask them questions or for help. The trainers are all awesome. Very pleasant, happy, warm and caring. None of them act like it is a job. They all treat us like we are friends and they get so excited to know how we are progressing. I like being able to talk about my ups and downs and not feeling like I am a nuisance or just another paycheck to them.

Since starting in July, and starting advocare products in august, I have lost approximately ten pounds and several inches off my waist. My 24 day challenge trainer, Julie Smith, always tells me how different I am looking; losing weight and inches. I have better energy, and whats more important, I have a greater desire to go workout. I never miss a session if I can help it.

From earlier this year when I was at my worst weight, I am down 15-17 pounds. 😀  I still have a ways to go, but it is the most fun I have had getting in shape, and the program is made better by the wonderful people who run it. I will continue going for as long as possible.

Thank you Get You In Shape!!

24 Day Challenge WINNER
Allison Jones 11 Pounds and 6% Body Fat


24 Day Challenge Before After

1. Name, where you are from, and what you do

Allison Jones from Coppell, TX.  I am a Director at a commercial real estate company in Irving

2. Where were you before the 24 Day Challenge and
why did you decide to join the 24 Day Challenge?.

Before the 24 Day Challenge I was in a good routine of working out before I started the Challenge but had let my eating slip off considerably over the summer.  We had lots of visitors, parties, etc over the summer and we ended up eating out too much and letting our kids do the same.  I had thought about doing the challenge for several months but was always making an excuse….May it was my son’s first birthday and Mother’s Day, then it was Father’s Day and my birthday and then family in town.  I was really excited when I saw that you guys were doing a bigger challenge this month and knew that this was my time to not make excuses.  The main reason that I decided to join the challenge was to get myself back on track.  I was unhappy with where I was eating wise and how it was making me feel and I really wanted to get off some more of the weight that I am trying to get rid of from my last pregnancy.  I was hoping that this could really get me back on track and get me back in healthy habits.

3. What was your impression with the first few days of the 24 Day Challenge?

It wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it might be.  By having a few days after meeting with Cynthia to shop, etc before getting started, I feel like I was really ready when I started.  The fiber drink was probably the worst part of it but Chaney suggested mixing it with a shake and that made a HUGE difference.  I was also very pleasantly surprised that I wasn’t hungry or craving things.  I was amazed that eating more protein in my snacks could really keep me more satisfied.  I found myself not snacking while i was making dinner and not craving carbs the way that I thought i would.  I also really liked the check list.  It really kept me conscious of following the plan.  Overall, it was much easier than I thought it would be with a bit of planning and following the plan.

4. How is the 24 Day Challenge program unique – why you enjoy it – why is it different than other programs you have tried?

I’ve never tried anything like this before because I was always worried about how safe they were, etc.  I have friends at work who have done “cleanses” and it just looked miserable.  They could only eat vegetables for the first week  and were taking tons and tons of pills.  It just looked horrible.  I had talked to a few people at boot camp who have done the challenge and they really seemed to enjoy it and I definitely trust all of the people that I’ve talked to and you guys.  I’ve done a lot of Weight Watchers over the years, and although I’ve had great success with it at times, looking back, I feel like it wasn’t necessarily teaching me how to eat better food.  I definitely learned portion size and watching calories, etc, but this system really has me looking at ingredients and labels a lot more.  I feel like I’m eating the right kinds of foods and learning that even though other programs had me eating lower calorie things, that this really showed me “better” foods.  The snacking advice really made a huge difference too.  Instead of just eating fruit because it’s lower calorie, adding in a protein makes the snack much more useful, which is something that I had never done before.  Overall, I feel like the program has really taught me a lot about food and what to eat/not to eat and when, which is something that I now know that I struggled with.

5. What results and benefits you have received from the 24 Day Challenge?

I think (I can’t remember what my initial weight was at the seminar) that I’ve lost almost 11 pounds.  More than that though, I’m able to wear pants that I couldn’t just 24 days ago and there are pants that I’ve been wearing for months that I put on and they are just too big.  And, on a whim last night I tried on my pre-pregnancy jeans and got them on.  I was floored when this happened.  I feel like my body has changed so much more than I could have hoped for in this 24 days.  I also feel like a completely different person.  The improved eating has really made me feel great and I think that has helped my energy levels a lot.  The spark in the afternoon is wonderful too.  I feel like I’ve been tired since I went back to work a year ago (after my baby) and no matter what I do, I don’t have any energy at night.  During this experience, I’ve found myself more awake and energetic at night, which has allowed me to spend more time with my husband and be more active with my kids.  Overall, I feel that my whole family has benefited from me doing this program, but most of all, I feel better physically, mentally and better about myself every day.

6 What did you like best about the 24 Day Challenge?

I love the products and how I really felt like they helped me along.  I was able to find some new products that I’m continuing to use that will continue to help me live a happy and healthy life.  I also like and appreciate the way that you all coached us along and were always there to motivate us.  It meant a lot to get the emails and to have you or Chaney checking up to see how things were going.  And overall, the thing that I like best is that I feel like a new person and I don’t’ want to stop this journey and I KNOW that I can continue this on to my goal weight and shape.

Here is another note that Alison wanted to sent us
I wanted to thank you all for introducing me to the 24 Day Challenge.  I truly think that it’s changed my life.  After I had my second child last summer I’ve really struggled to get back to where I was beforehand.  I was in the best shape of my life before that and was working out 5-6 days a week.  I was able to do Weight Watchers in the fall (which I’ve had very good success with in the past), but really stalled out around the holidays.  That’s when I found out about Susan Wilson doing the Get You In Shape boot camp and finally got up the nerve to start in February, on the snow week.  I absolutely love boot camp and how much stronger and in shape it’s made me, but I’ve struggled over the last 6 months with my eating.

I had heard about the 24 day challenge and knew a few people who had done it and really wanted to try it in May, but I always seemed to find an excuse…birthdays, Mother’s Day, family in town, etc.  When you sent out the email about the contest this month, I knew that this was my best shot at doing it.  I talked to my family about doing it and my husband was very supportive and I’ve just been thrilled at the results.  More than just the weight loss and the clothes that I haven’t fit in to for a while, I just feel so much better.  I was amazed that I could eat this well and not crave the carbs and sugar that I always felt like I needed.  I was amazed that doing something like adding protein to my snacks would help keep me full longer.  I’ve also struggled a lot with energy since my second was born.  I have a more than 40 hour a week job plus family commitments, a husband who is a rugby coach and trying to fit in time for myself (which is normally boot camp), has been a real challenge.  I’ve been amazed at how much more energy I really have now with eating better and the Spark.  I really feel like this has been a great addition to my routine.  I take it in the afternoon and I don’t feel like I’m exhausted at 7pm anymore.  I think that product is just great.

Overall, I’m just thrilled with the results of the 24 Day Challenge.  I have so much more energy than before and feel like my kids and husband are reaping the benefits of that.  I’ve also been able to turn around our summertime bad habits of eating out too much and eating convenience foods and we’re all eating much healthier now.  The interesting thing to me is that I thought that I would be craving all of this bad stuff when I got done with the challenge and I was surprised to find out that I really just wanted to have another salad for lunch today.  I’m just amazed at how this has really changed my life and made so many aspects of it better.

Thanks to you and Chaney for all of the help along the way and all of the motivation.   I really feel like I’ve won a lot in the past 24 days.

Thanks,

Allison
