#Mamavation Monday - It's time to part-ay!

Wow. Time flies when you're having fun, huh? On the day I submitted my application for Campaign 7 I remember thinking that January 17th seemed so far away! It's here!

Campaigning is rough stuff. I tweeted earlier this week that I would never be a politician, because campaigning is hard work! You would think it would be easy-peasy getting someone to click a few times for you! But wow, it takes some coaxing (and even a giveaway!) I have, however, been surprised by some of the people who have arisen out of the shadows of my past to support me! An old Sunday school teacher, an old friend from school, and even some new friends I made at work! I have been awestruck with the support I have received at work by people whom I barely know! How can I not succeed with this kind of atmosphere!

And here we are, not only at the beginning of a new campaign, but a new MILI challenge! I am so excited that Leah has offered a little incentive for us applicants! I have watched too many campaigns where applicants fade away if they were not chosen for Mamavation Mom! Odds are, if you stick around, you are more likely to get chosen in the next campaign! So if you were an applicant, and don't get chosen as Mamavation Mom, stick around and post all 7 weeks, earn an extra $100 and maybe even get a head start on the next campaign!

So back to campaigning. I want to be the next Mamavation Mom. Not only for my family and for my health but for the sisterhood. I want to make you all proud and be an inspiration that will draw more moms in. I want to show every mom out there that healthiness can be attained. I want to make Leah and our sponsors proud. I want all of this, but can only have it if you vote for me! The two new Mamavation Moms will be announced Monday 1/17 during the twitter party! Make sure to RSVP, and join us for a chance to win some groovy swag!

On to the stats for the Move it and Lose it challenge:
Bust - 49 1/2''
Waist - 45''
Hips - 60"
L Arm - 17''
R Arm - 16''
L Thigh - 32''
R Thigh - 32''

Weight - 270.0

One of the many reasons I would never apply - my hat is off to you for dealing with the extra pressure of campaigning! You WILL be a fabulous Mamavation Mom - good luck tomorrow.

Love ya!

Campaigning is rough - you saw how little of it I did in the last campaign ;). Good luck sweetie, I hope you know how much I am behind you. You are an amazing role model for many of us.

Amanda said...

I'm pretty sure I'd never do as good at the campaigning as all you lovely ladies have done. Good luck and congratulations on making it this far!

MNMSpecial said...

Good Luck with this campaign! Totally jealous you get to do it without me, lol. You will rock it no matter the out come. Can't wait to see you at the party. You can do anything and I know you are going to rock this!

YES! Campaigning is hard work. You've done great. You got my vote and I will cheer you on no matter what happens.

Erin Patrick said...

I imagine trying to get votes is hard and not a lot of fun :( But that is super cool that you have been given so much love and support from lots of folks.
Good luck tonight - and no matter what happens I am excited to see your successes over the next several weeks.

Shelley said...

I love you girl! I know it's been a rough week, but regardless of the outcome, you are making changes that will stick FOR LIFE! I'm always here for you girl - no matter what, so don't hesitate to lean on me :)

I am so excited for you! I wanted to be Mamavation Mom with you last campaign and that didn't work out for us. But now is our time to shine! Woo hoo!

Michelle said...

Congrats again, Kimberly! I may not know you personally but I am still proud of you! You show a lot of courage being able to put yourself on the map and let people find you, right where you are. That's a courage I don't even have yet, so be proud of yourself! I hope one day to become a Mamavation mom just like you, so yours are the footsteps I hope to walk in. In life, learn all you can and never stop learning! Take everything for what it's worth and you'll do amazing with what you've got :) Best wishes in all you do!
