Mamavation Monday~The Beginning

As you have learned from my last posts I am going to be taking part in Mamavation to help loose some weight and hopefully get back down to where I was before I had my girls! 

The Goal

  • Get back down to 120 lbs

  • Exercise at least 4 times a week

  • Drink More Water

  • Eat better
The Verdict:

  • Loose 52 lbs!
Friday night I went out and bought a scale and I do have to say though that I wasn't as bad as what I thought I weighed. I figured I was about 180-190, so that was somewhat of a pleasant surprise.

I had Joc take these pics so they aren't that great, but not to bad...

I have decided on a name for my new blog!!! Drum roll Please...........
~Simply Fitting Into Life...and my old jeans~
I was hoping to have my new blog done by today, but that's not gonna happen for a few more days at least. I am also working on "My Story" of my weight journey, so stay tuned into The Simple Jocabell Life!!

By the way if you haven't voted today for the next Mamavation Moms TODAY is the last day to vote and the winners will be announced at the twitter party TONIGHT @ 8-10pm EST. So go get your vote in and join us tonight!!

You are an amazing, bold woman! I considered doing the bikini shots but then chickened out - you are a DIVA for having the personality to do it!

Welcome to mamavation and thank you so much for commenting on my post!

First you are AWESOME and brave and just freaking fabulous. I WISH I had the boldness to just post my scale/before pics.

You are on the right track and it is only "down" from here! :-D

Wow! That is awesome you just jumped in and posted these pics. I will be posting my first body pics next Monday and I've been around since May. Love your scale - I have the same one! I also really like the name for your new blog!

Nice to meet you and I look forward to getting to know you!

I'm hoping to get down to what you weigh right now. :) You look cute! I appreciate the courage you had to post pics. I was going to wait until next week to post mine, but I think I'll go ahead and do it.

Mandi @AWelbaum said...

What a great way to start off! I hope you have a great week!

If you even have a quarter the willpower that you do bravery, then this will be peasy!
Not sure what plans you have for your eating, but I use the "My Plate" option on
You can enter all of the food you eat and keep track of your calorie/fat intake as well as any activity you do. Some people aren't crazy about tracking, but I find it super helpful.

BTW - Love the new blog name ;)

Rachel said...
