Okay, so here’s our story. It all started with a family trip to Atlanta. You know, one of those fully-indulgent trips “for the kids” filled with pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers, unlimited soft drinks, and ice cream everyday (of course!). Well, all was good…until we started scrolling through our digital photos and the truth became our reality.
Then, in the van on the way home, we chatted in the front seat about how incredibly tired and FULL we were…and how all we really wanted to do was get home, lay down, and eat more ice cream. We felt terrible.
And that was it. We knew something had to be done. It was time for a change. So, Julie picked up the phone and called our friend who had been sharing with us about Advocare. With a little fear and trepidation, we ordered two 24-Day Challenges and vowed to start on Monday.
By the end of that summer, Jerry had dropped over 35 pounds and gone from running the sporadic 5K to running a 15K in preparation for his first half marathon. Julie had lost over 12 pounds and was now ready to run circles around our three busy children.
Our lives were changed. Now, we realize that not ALL of that was Advocare. Our prayer from the beginning was that God would help us to make this a lifestyle. And, Jerry prayed that God would help him to love vegetables. Now…ain’t God faithful. What an awesome God we serve!
Advocare gave us exactly what we needed to jump start (and carry us through) this new lifestyle of fitness. WelchFit…it’s all about being healthy to serve the One (and ones) we love. Whether it’s your personal quest for health or a desire for a plan B income, we invite YOU to join us on the journey. Let us know how we can help.
