Mamavation Monday - Move It & Lose It Begins

First - congratulations to the Sista of the Week, Shannon Hamilton (@Trulove821)!!

TODAY, I'm beginning the Earth Footwear Move It & Lost It Challenge.

As one of the applicants that applied to Mamavation campaign #5, I could be the mom who loses the highest percentage of body weight during the 7 week campaign and will win $500 and a pair of Earth Footwear. And the second place winner will also win a pair of Earth Footwear, but no cash.

Join us on Twitter July 12th for the Mamavation Launch Party on July 12th from 8-10pm EDT. They will announce the two Mamavation Mom winners and give away some crazy swag! It's the big Twitter party launching the 5th campaign and ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of Mamavation on July 12 from 5pm to 7pm PST (Mountain Daylight Savings Time: 6pm to 8pm, Central Daylight Savings Time: 7pm to 9pm, OR Eastern Daylight Savings Time: 8pm to 10pm). Over the course of a year, Mamavation Moms lost over 111 lbs! They will also have giveaway winners organized by @Resourcefulmom. Use hashtag #mamavation for the party. (You have to be present to win!)

Earth Footwear is the official sponsor of the Mamavation campaign. Earth Footwear is perfect for moms who want to save time. According to a study, people that wear Earth Footwear burn 4x more fat than those who don't wear Earth Footwear. The secret is in the technology. Earth Footwear uses Kalso ® Negative Heel Technology®, a unique inclined sole that positions the toes 3.7ยบ higher than the heels. The slight angle shifts weight subtly back over the heels, and can help strengthen and tone the body while also burning calories. So if you can't get to the gym, put on a pair of Earth Footwear and go about your normal routine. The shoes will do the work for you. OR if you want better results with your workout, put on a pair of Earth Footwear to really kick the fat burning into high gear! I REALLY WANT TO WIN A PAIR OF THESE SHOES!!!!

So, here are my official beginning photos:

So proud of you on your loss! i AM ESTATIC about you not drinking soda. I know how hard that is but in the long term it is so worth it!!!

I have always wanted one of those scales where the readout isn't on the floor between your toes. Plus your Apollo is BEAUTIFUL. I have a fantasty (not THAT kind, sheesh) where I breed my Basset hound with a great dane and end up with this really tall 100+ pound basset hound with the biggest ears you've ever seen. LOL - congrats on the weight loss!

Congrats on kicking the diet soda and on losing a lb. Don't forget to congratulate yourself as well! Good luck winning a pair of those shoes tonight! I own a pair of Exerwalks and I <3 them. Just need to add a good pair of insoles (I like Superfeet Green). :)

Congratulations on the weightloss and kicking the soda habit! I'll have to admit that I had a Coca-Cola addiction that was hard to break. I've been free of it for about a year now and feel so much better for it. I drink green tea or water with a lemon slice. I cut out everything that has aspartame in it as I found out that it was the cause of my horrible migraines. You don't know me, but I am praying for you and your success. Prayer moves mountains! You go girl!!!!

I remember quitting diet coke b/c of the was really hard so I commend you for tackling that at the same time you are doing your weight loss program! We are all pulling for you sweetie!
