I want to be the next Mamavation Mom!

This is my part of my application to become the next Mamavation Mom. [YAY!]

What is a Mamavation Mom you may be thinking. What is mamavation? 

Straight from the website:

“Two women, referred to as Mamavation Moms™, go through a 7-week online boot camp and their lives are put on a public stage. They share their struggles learning healthy living as a mom as the world watches via computer. The goal is to inspire and demonstrate how challenges can be overcome. But ultimately the goal is to save their family from obesity by passing on the values they learn.”

“Mamavation™ is an online docudrama and weight loss support group for moms in social media. It’s both a campaign and Virtual Sorority™ in one.”

Mamavation is changing families one MOM at a time.

If When I get chosen to become a Mamavation Mom the campaign becomes a virtual docudrama with real challenges and victories as I become the star of the campaign.

I have struggled with weight for years now. I have beaten myself up over my bad eating habits and lack of motivation to work out. But I’ve reached my breaking point. I’m tired of complaining, I’m tired of making excuses, and I am ready, I am ready to change my life. For those of you who follow my blog regularly you know that I’ve already begun a fitness and wellness journey and have begun walking..alot. My Monday Mamavation post this week outlines my goal of walking 25 miles this week!

I was built to succeed; I was not built to fail. I can do this. I will do this. I can become the next Mamavation Mom.

Below is my video to become a Mamavation Mom which is another part of the application process. I talk about why I want to become the next Mamavation Mom and what I will do to inspire other moms online:


This isn’t a joke. I’m joining Mamavation to change my life. There are stiff requirements that come along with becoming a Mamavation Mom and some of them are:

(15) Must be willing to post Mamavation Monday posts with scale picture every Monday after the campaign for at least 6 months
(16) Must be willing to sign up and run a 5K after the campaign
(17) Must be willing to act as a “Mentor” to the next crop of Mamavation Moms and continue to support the Mamavation Sistahood

I am so ready for this change, and I’m so ready to live a healthy life. Not only for myself, but for my daughter as well. I want to be comfortable and confident with who I am. I want to be able to say that I no longer have sleep apnea. I want to be able to sleep through the night. I want to help and inspire others.

But, I cannot be the next Mamavation Mom without your support! I ask all of you to please tweet the following:
