#Mamavation Applicant – Megan (and another chance to win an EatSmart Scale)

It’s time again for you to cast your vote for the life you can change.  We will begin another Mamavation  Mom campaign and it’s a tough decision who to vote for.  Over the next few days, you will begin seeing posts for several of the applicants as you get to know them.  I hope that if you are undecided, you will take the time to read these posts and get to know the finalists.  I don’t take voting for Mamavation Mom lightly.  As a graduate, I know first hand the way that this experience can change the lives of two women.

It’s not a quick fix.  You won’t reach all of your goals in this 7 weeks.  It’s not a magic pill or wand or wish – it’s hard work.  What it is – an opportunity to take the resources you are given and learn how to live your life completely differently because let’s face it – if you struggle with weight loss, what you are doing now isn’t working.  To be a Mamavation Mom, you need to surrender – completely surrender mind, body and spirit to the experts who will work at break-neck speeds to re-teach all of the things you need to know for better health.  It’s not just about weight loss and on this journey, the mental changes are the hardest to deal with.

Today, I want to take a minute to introduce you to someone who I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know over the last several months.   She has applied for Mamavation Mom not once, not twice, but 3 times and proven that she’s here for the long haul.  Megan (@nccarterfamily) was also one of the first to jump on the bandwagon with the infamous Gruntstyle workouts and has been an AMAZING cheerleader for me personally as well as the other girls in the sistahood.  Because she’s stuck around through thick and thin, I strongly believe that this is HER time to shine… but knowing her like I do, I know that no matter the outcome, she’s going to achieve her goals and will inspire others to do the same.  but this is an opportunity for her to speak… not me.  So without further ado, I’ll let Megan tell you in her own words why she should get your vote.

Hello All… I am Megan or @NcCarterFamily and I am basically the Zoo Keeper for our family. I am a stay at home mom but rarely am I actually at home. I have 3 crazy boys, a husband and we live on the family property so my in laws are our neighbors. I blog at www.carterzoochronicles.blogspot.com and http://cartersautismdogadventures.blogspot.com

I started having kids very early in life and spent time being a mom and not really taking the best care of myself. When 2 of my children were diagnosised with Autism I jumped head first and learned everything that I needed to do or could think to do to dealing with their issues. Which meant a lot of emotional eating for me. Also a lot of quick meals and fast food while playing Taxi driver for the family. To add more to my plate I am also starting back to school this fall.

I’ve always put everyone else before me and have never really found out who Megan is. I know Megan is not who I am now. I am not this obese mother who is too tired, too fat, too lazy, too exhausted, too stressed out to be the mother my kids deserve. I want to be able to run after them scratch that I have to be able to run and catch them because of the autism. I want to be able to take them to the water park, or to ride the roller coasters with them. I want to be running around playing basketball, chase whatever it is they want to do I want to be able to join them and I WILL DO IT.

I know that signing my ass over to Leah and Daniel along with the other Coaches and Mentors and going through the Mamavation Mom boot camp will be a life changing opportunity for myself and my family. It will give me the tools that I HAVE to learn to make this LIFE STYLE CHANGE for my family. I don’t want my children to have to grow up and then learn a healthy lifestyle – I want them to learn it from me. I also want to inspire the others in my family so that they can learn and see what I have done to change my life.I have been a Sista with www.Mamavation.com for 7 months and this is my 3rd Campaign.

I hope you will take a moment and head over to the Mamavation Site and Vote for me NcCarterFamily…
