Mamavation Monday! My First

This is my First Time writing this Mamavation Monday Post. I have been following this group alittle and now I want to get more involved and join the Sistahood.

Mamavation is a social experiment and weight loss campaign in social media with the goals of teaching moms healthy living lifestyle choices so they can share with their family. Mamavation™ is a two part campaign: (1) a virtual healthy living boot camp for two moms and (2) the home of the first virtual healthy living sorority in social media, the Sistahood™.

I have followed Campaign#3 alittle and the Mamavation Moms have done a Great Job in their weight loss and getting healthy journey. What's great is they have support!!! I feel that this is what really helps us all on our weight loss and healthy living goals.
I want to be there for all the moms in this group and I want them to help me out too. I decided last year that I wanted to get back in shape and lose weight. I did pretty good and lost 23 lbs. But I was motivated--I had a wedding and class reunion that I wanted to look good at. I worked out using the Wiifit and EA Sports Active and started eating healthy. I also had support and went through this journey with my sister Colleen.(She has lost over 50 pounds and still wants to lose more) Then... a year later...I still have those last 5 to 10 pounds that I need to get rid of. These pounds love me too much(LOL) and aren't going away easy. But then again...I haven't really been trying too hard either.
So...Here is my is my challenge- I need to lose these extra pounds before Summer and I want to tone up and be fit. I want my family to join me and eat healthy too.
This week I have made some progress. I started to do the EA Sports More Workouts 6 weeks challenge and need to Thank my sister Colleen because she is motivating me. She is a Great Mom of two special needs children and a devoted wife,sister and friend. She has been doing so great with her weight loss journey and still needs to lose so more weight. She is applying to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support, as she has supported so many of us. You can help her out too by sending out this tweet: "Hey @bookieboo I want @colleen_mouse to be the next #Mamavation Mom. She has my support!"

The Mamavation Campaign has so many great sponsors especially Earth Footwear. I so want a pair of these!!!
I would love to win a pair to help tone up! Check them out. For all of April they will be doing special giveaways for Earth day.
