#Mamavation Monday - Mamavation Mom Application

I am officially applying to be a Mamavation Mom. I am so excited! I have been losing weight pretty consistently since May, but I feel I still need some direction. My nutrition is still a little "off", not much balance in my diet. I also need more direction with my fitness routines. I hope to become a finalist, and if I do, please take time to vote for me! If I don't make it as a Mamavation Mom, I will be participating in the Move it and Lose it challenge, all while cheering on all my sistas!!

Are you wondering what Mamavation is all about?? 
 Mamavation
Alas, Here is my video...



My starting weight for this campaign is, 
263.7 
which is down 2.2 lbs from last week, I have had Reactive Arthritis for the past couple weeks, and it has cause my joints to be inflamed and I have been retaining some water.

Don't forget about Mamavation TV tonight at 10pm EST/7pm PST! We will be joined by the one and only Pete Cohen, I am SO excited, he is awesome! Check out his new nutritional program!

I want to congratulate our Sista of the Week, Joanna, @way2gomom. She is so awesome and helps us in knowing what to eat and what to avoid!

Woot! I am so excited for you! You can do this - and you ARE doing it!!

Remember even if you are chosen as a finalist and final 2... this is only the beginning of the journey. There will be challenges along the way... and that is when you need to lean on the sistas (and other friends/family who support you) for motivation, help, and that kick in the pants! :)

You are awesome! You have my support!

Hey Kimberly. Loved your video. I especially loved the part where you talked about thinking about how you were just meant to be overweight. I've had that conversation with myself so many times.

Good luck. You can totally do this.
