Support what is it? When you think of the words? Do you think of a metal piece holding up a bridge or maybe its that sports bra holding our girls as we run! Support comes in many different shapes and sizes for sure, I want to talk to you about a different type of support one that I have had for over a year now. That is the support I have got from Leah and the gals of Mamavation. I was on twitter back in nov of 2009 for a party for earth footwear where Leah was the guest speaker she was talking about mamavation and I was very much interested in it. I knew this was something I would want to see and try out. So I went to the next tv show which was the last Monday of the first two graduates I was so shocked at how much weighted they lost. I could not believe they support they where getting from each other. So I became a member I wrote up my first post and was so excited to join mamavation. Then the moment came when I could apply to be the next mamavation mom I was so excited, I made my video and said what I thought was the right things, where guess what it was all the wrong things to say it was not support at all, it was about me this and me that. I was not chosen for the top five and in the end I was so grateful. It was not my time at all. So I sat through the next seven weeks and I learned more about myself I was 250 lbs then and I drop 20lbs in seven weeks working out and eating right. I was so happy. I  was starting to become the person I always wanted to be. Then the seven weeks where over and I was so happy because I was going to apply again but this time I was going to do it the right way, when guess what happen thats right I found out I was pregnant. All my hard work of losing weight was now ruined I thought now more then ever I needed support. I was very upset and sad this was not planned and not in my cards. I knew the Lord works in ways we do not understand, but why would be make me pregnant when I was on this track of losing weight. Then I shared my fear with many of you and you all helped me so much and showed me that I could do this pregnancy and not gain weight and be healthy. I went nine months started out at 230 and ended at 245 15 gained thats all. At the end most of the weight was water weight and now I AM AT 215 LBS A TOTAL OF 30 LBS LOST IN TWO MONTHS! I would of never of been able to of lost this weight without your support. Now I have a chance of becoming the next mamavation mom for the first time this is something I have honestly dreamed about for over a year. something I have been wanting to do have been waiting for my time to come. I am asking right now for your support for a vote. There are 12 wonderful women who have a chance and only two of us will be chosen that is very hard I wish us all the very best. I can promise you all something I am NOT GOING ANYWHERE! I have been here for over a year ask Leah you can not get rid of me! I can promise you I will be here for you all and I want to be a role model. I am already making changes in my life I am walking 13,000 to 16, 000 steps a day I am doing the wii ea active a day working out 90 mins a day, making a meal plan and sticking to it. My dh is on board and wants to help me as much as he can. I need to get this weight off of me I know it is not an overnight fix, but I also know this would be the start of something that would help me for the rest of my help. So I ask you once again for you support please go here and vote for me. http://www.mamavation.com/2011/01/vote-for-mamavation-mom-2.html

ups and downs

I am a very weird person I love having weeks where there are tons of ups and downs. Now this may seem really weird, but there is a good reason why. Sundays starts off good was a great day at church, then we noticed Logan was acting sick but did;t think to much of it. When we get a phone call from my sister tell me my niece has strep throat! We watched Logan and on Monday he was getting very sick the doctors was closed till Tuesday so we had to suffer. Monday night was pure hell! Logan was so sick he slept in our bed and was up almost ever hour. This was not fun at all. Tuesday comes we go to the doctor and sure enough he has strep throat. Now this was a major down. Logan hates median unless you can chew it up, so getting him to take anything was hard. But heres the things on Tuesday we my doctor gave me great news he said I am all clear to apply to be the next mamavation mom. There is the up! I was online Tuesday night thinking about should I apply or not, seeing as I am a very late bird and Leah likes early birds. I was talking myself out of it when Rachel and Stephine talked to me and told me I could do it. It was the little push I needed so I made a video and got it all uploaded. It honestly took me a while to push the submit button cause I was scared. But after I got done I let my friends all of you online know about it and was so amazed at the support I got right away! Things where looking up, when I started to feel sick. Not knowing what it was I went to the doctor on Thursday for some blood work to be done and found out I had strep throat now! I tweeted out to everyone and was floored with get well soon. That was a down that turned into an up! Mamavation was been that up in my life. I have never once thought bad about this sisterhood. Now when you think of Sisterhood what do you think about? I think about so many things but one that sticks out to me is support. So I am going to ask you all for your support. If  I have inspired you in any way please tweet out Hey @! I want @ to be the next  Mom. She has my support! 
I know without a shadow of doubt in my mind that if I would of never saw mamavation on twitter I would still be a person who was ok with being overweight. I am not that person anymore. I will lose the weight and I will support others in their goals to lose weight.
This week blogging carnival is sponsored by Gamestop, and they asked a very good question.
What are ways you can work out without having to leave the house? 
One of my fav. ways to work out is running and playing outside in the backyard with Logan! I also love playing on my moms wii Just dance 2 with my niece and nephews. They honestly keep me fit. My last way is to do ballroom dancing with my hubby in the kitchen! 
I am so excited to start this new chapter in my life! I am so grateful for you all! XOXO Amanda
p.s. opps forgot to let you all know I am down 5lbs but really i think its because I have been sick so I would say for real only 3lbs!
