What is Mamavation?
Mamavation is a social experiment and weight loss campaign created to change lives one mom at a time. Bookieboo Moms have organized as a team to impact one mom's life and help her create an everylasting healthy lifestyle.
The challenge goes like this: Can the Mamavation Team help one overweight mom from twitter lose weight and bring healthy habits home to her family? If we can do this, we have succeeded. And by helping this mom, can we also help thousands of other moms as they watch? If this is possible, we have succeeded in our social experiment. We really want to change the lives of many, by focusing on one mom at a time.
From July 31st to September 30th a team of experts will guide the winner, and the blogosphere will provide moral support. This is exactly what I need: expert help and cheerleaders. I am very motivated by other people. I have some intrinsic motivation, but I need that extrinsic motivation too. If I make the final 4, you will have a chance to vote for me. Here is my application video.
Oh, and there are prizes too!
