#mamavation monday: I’m a Finalist for Mamavation Mom


This morning the #Mamavation Mom Finalists were announced and I’m so excited to be a part of an amazing group!!

Rachel – @Rachhabs – Wow what an amazing lady! I saw her posting about her results so far since June (which you have to see) just mind blowing!! You can find her blogging at To Hab & To Hold.

Johnna – @Johnna_r_t – Johna’s reason for applying to be a #mamavation mom is the reason so many mom’s start their new healthy lifestyle: Her Children & Grandchildren!

Krista – @kristalswan – I actually know Krista personally as we both are oregonians! She is a wonder woman full of spunk and energy! I had totally missed her application so I was excited to see her as a finalist! You can find her blogging at Mostly Mommyhood.

Tina – @madhattermom – Last but definitely not least is my friend Tina! I saw her put up her video and I was so excited! I’m thrilled to have such a great person right by my side competing with me! You can find her blogging at Mad Hatter Mom.

My #Mamamvation Application

If you missed it here is my application video:

Starting Point!

  • Weight: 185.4 lbs
  • Neck: 14.25 inches
  • Waist: 37.25
  • Hips: 43.75
  • Thigh: 22.5
  • Arm: 12.25
I’ve lost 4 inches & about 2.5 pounds  in the last 2 months since the end of the #mamavation #2weekchallenge. It’s been a slow battle to get pounds off, but the inches are still going down.


I got to see someone I hadn’t seen in about a month and she said I’m smaller. After staring at a scale that has been just bouncing up and down on the same 2 pounds this was good to hear that I’m still making progress. And seeing the inches off I know that I really am still making progress.

Focusing on This Weeks

  • Write everything down in my food journal!
  • Exercise everyday! #getmovingchallenge

What were your Victories this week? What are you focusing on this week?
