I'm Going To Get My Mama Mojo Back!

Pin It
Normally I don't write about my giveaway winnings but this is a clear exception. Hubs and I have both been gaining, gaining, and GAINING weight for forever. My weight depresses me. It burdens me. It steals my joy. Quite frankly, I am freaking sick of it.

A few weeks ago I read a post at Crazy About My Baybah about a weight loss coach. Jennifer McCay had been in my shoes. She had struggled with her weight and all the burdens that come with it. Like me she had tried every "diet" out there only to fail. Jennifer persevered by attacking weight loss as more than a physical battle. She also made it a mental one. Now she is a professional weight loss coach!

I bet you can guess what that giveaway was for! Yep, an online boot camp where she would help a handfull of other Momma's who have the very same issues as me.

Yesterday I looked at the post to see who had won. No winner was announced so I assumed it was not me. I was very bummed. I so wanted that extra help. I knew that doing it alone just has not worked.

This morning I was checking my mail on my iPhone while I sipped some coffee and there it was! I HAD WON! I am on cloud nine today. I have been praying for God to help me with this for so long. All the cards are lining up just right and that always equals a God moment in my world.

Please pray for me and all the ladies in the boot camp. Pray that our hearts and minds will be changed and we will be receptive to Jennifer McCay's teaching. I am certainly going to keep you all updated on this fantastic journey. Momma boot camp here I come!


  1. Honey, this is AWESOME! I am right there with you! We took away all sugar and junk food in February, and then added in some home exercise. Now we go to the gym (as a family) and I have lost 20 pounds! But I need to lose SO much did my butt ever get so big?! I am totally excited for you and will be waiting to hear how things are going! Yep, I'll be praying too, that's the most important ingredient to the weight loss recipe...prayer!

  2. How Cool!!!

    I'm very interested in her approach. Goodness knows mine hasn't worked ;-) It makes sense to approach it from the mental side. The conversations I have before, during, and after I have 'indulged' would indicate that I need to use some stronger language on myself.

    Good Luck!

  3. Congratulations!

  10. I thought I'd just stop by from the Alexa Hop, and found your posts inspiring. I have also been struggling with my weight issues. I am about 30 lbs overweight. I will pray for you and the other ladies, and have decided to go back to working out. Your determination has rubbed off on me. I would be honored to have you stop by, Oh, I followed, and will be reading!
