The A-team is here! Angela Bishop and Andrea Kruse are ready to kick some butt. These two moms have battled all kinds of obstacles in life, as well as together back in campaign eight.
Remember me? I’m Andrea Kruse (@notimeMom) from campaign #8.
I started out preparing for this time around as a Mamavation Graduate at over 208 lbs. Waiting for the official start, I knocked it down just below the 200 mark. But I have a long way to go still. My goal is to loose a total of 33.6 lbs. Slow and steady is my goal. I am so excited to be sweating alongside Angela. We are both busy Mom with young kids scratching out a few meager minutes for ourselves.
I’m thrilled to try out Tae Bo for the first time and am combining it with my usual walking and some yoga/pilates fusion for my still tender back.
I live on a family farm and love making my own food. Yes, it takes more time but my heart is in it.
Starting Weight: 208.6 lbs.

My name is Angela and I like to eat.
That’s how I feel sometimes, like an addict. I’ve battled issues with eating my whole life and my weight has gone up and down because of it. When I found Mamavation back in summer of 2010 my whole outlook on eating changed. After doing back-to-back campaigns (#7 and #8) I made it to an all time low in my weight, and was feeling amazing in my clothes – having gone from a size 18/20 to a size 12. My husband liked the change as well and didn’t waste much time getting me pregnant again. I tried to eat healthy, but a rough start to my pregnancy left me in bed a lot and I gained more weight than I needed to. Now that my baby is almost 4 months old, I’m finally starting to get some energy back. With the support of my teammate Andrea and all of my Mamavation sistas, I know I’ll be back in those skinny jeans in no time.
