Melissa & Ben Henderson - Tennessee
I was a tired, former teacher with two small children. At 50 pounds overweight, I needed a change in my life. In February 2012, I met my mentor Shelly at our moms’ group. She shared her story about what AdvoCare had done for her and her family. Initially, I was very skeptical and closed to the idea. I was a size 18 and she was a size two, so I didn't think she could possibly relate to me.
Six weeks later, I was considering going back to teaching. Shelly reached back out to me again to share AdvoCare after hearing that I needed additional income. I finally decided to take her up on the 24-Day Challenge™. I started eating right and exercising and the weight kept falling off. Initially, Ben was simply supportive of my desire to lose weight but after watching me with more energy and confidence, he decided it was time to try the Challenge as well. Together, we have lost and kept off a combined 115 pounds for almost three years. This is the best part – I can earn extra income and be at home with my children.
