I was asked by @bookieboo to join #mamavation! That is something I wanted to do for a while, but I was afraid. Now looking back, I do not even know why I was afraid, because the only thing I have to lose are pounds!!!
The first week was wonderful. I got so much support from all the wonderful #mamavation ladies. I think that this post is about appreciation and letting everyone know that your stories, your success and your warm hearts help others. I am so happy I joined, not only because I am seeing results (I will talk about that later) but because I found a group of wonderful people that I can learn from and rely on if I need.
I am learning a lot from the group. Not only about nutrition and fitness, which of course it is very important, but I am learning about loyalty as support. I consider myself a very good friend but I never thought you could be “friend” with someone you do not even know. And even though I am pretty new to the group I feel the sincere support.
I enjoy reading the post, related or not to #mamavation. I think the pictures of your familes are cute and the comments and clever and funny. That is what support is all about. Not only about telling me to go exercise, but to be there when I have something to share.
As for the #mamavation team itself, I am so glad for the recipes, the workouts and posts of motivation.
My results this week are great, at least for me. Even though I had several events that were linked to meals and drinks, I was able to lose weight. I am down almost 4 pounds. YEAH…..
I did not take my measurements, so I will do that tomorrow after buying a measurement tape and will start keeping track of them as well. I am being really active. Either elliptical, the @gruntstyle abs workout, zumba or riding the bike. And I have been enjoying them, how cool is that?
I am looking forward to see the rest of the thing I can accomplish and I want to thank everyone for their support.
