What is #Mamavation Mom?

All this posting about Mamavation and my quest to become the next Mamavation Mom warrants some explaining, right?

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


Leah Segedie, owner and creator of Mamavation is focusing on us moms. (Finally!) It's all about us. She is leading this group simply to help us all learn how to live a healthy lifestyle so we can make our families healthier. Obesity starts at home, and we can end it there! 

Every 3 months or so a new bootcamp also called a campaign for Mamavation Mom begins. 

How do you become a Mamavation Mom? (December 15th to January 5th)
"Stop! You must complete a video application answering this question, “Why do you want to be the next Mamavation Mom AND what will YOU do to inspire other moms online?” Please keep your responses to under four minutes. As soon as you are finished, upload the video to YouTube and tag it “mamavation”, then post the video in your blog with a description of the campaign".
Yep, Create a video, fill out an application, then the campaigning begins! I have created my video, which can be viewed here, and I have started campaigning. 

Finalist Week (January 10th to January 17th)
This is when all the Mamavation Mom applicants are narrowed down to five finalists. Leah posts the finalists videos on and opens a poll. One vote per computer/phone/tablet is allowed. I will post a link to the poll if I am chosen as a finalist! I need your help to become the next Mamavation Mom!
Mamavation Mom Twitter Party (January 17 8-10pm EST)

The Mamavation Mom Twitter Party is unlike any party you have ever attended! New friends are made, new facts are learned, and lots of prizes are won! At the end of the Twitter Party the two Mamavation Moms are announced! Loads of fun!

Mamavation Moms (Campaign #7: January 17th to March 4th)
"Mamavation Moms lose weight in a boot camp experience without having to leave the home. They are set up with free fitness equipment, a solid support group, and professional resources to do so. As they are learning healthy living and losing weight they live their lives on a stage for seven weeks. The campaign becomes a virtual docudrama with real challenges and victories as they become the stars of the campaign."
"Two women, referred to as Mamavation Moms™, go through a 7-week online boot camp and their lives are put on an 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."
