Vote for Bert, Cloth Diaper Blogger
A Cloth Diaper Contest and Inspirational Message!
Remember how, after your baby came along, you had to weed through your closet to find clothes that still fit? If you had a hard time getting back in your favorite jeans, you're definitely not alone! Most of us have been there! Babies change your life for the better, but it can be so hard to find time for a shower, let alone a work-out!
Every now and then, someone comes into your life, and reminds you that taking care of yourself is important, too! For many of us, that person is Elizabeth "Bert" Anderson! Bert is participating in the Steele Fitness Challenge, and what she's doing has been so inspirational!

Bert is a mommy just like you and me! With two children under the age of 4, she struggled with her health and weight after her children were born. And, like many of us moms, she put her family ahead of her fitness! Just before she turned 30, she decided it was time to get fit, and she joined the Steele Fitness Challenge! You can find out more about
why she wants to get fit here
Bert got married in 2005, and started blogging in 2009 as a way to keep track of her thoughts on being a first time mom, especially her struggle with post-partum depression, and as a way of reaching out to other moms who struggle with the same things! Bert's got a quirky sense of humor and an up-beat take on life. You can follow her adventures in mommyhood on her blog at FTM , where she maintains that no matter how many children you have, you will always be a "first time mom" because there's a first time for everything.
Why Should YOU Vote for Bert?
We would love to see her win this challenge!
Over the past 3 months, Bert has inspired many of us through-out the cloth diaper community to think about what type of fitness examples we set for our children! Let her inspire you too!
In typical Bert fashion, she tells us frequently that she's so happy to have changed her life for the better, and that she doesn't need to win this challenge because she's already won back her health! And that's why we would love to see her win - what an awesome way to end such a challenge!
So, please, vote for Bert!
