**Adapted from a previous Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans post from 2009 that Christy wrote. You can see the original post here!
And now, a good old fashioned Sisterhood poem for y’all!
Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the ‘hood
All our members were scrambling, for recipes which were good.
Along the chimney stockings were hung all about,
With hopes that St Nicholas would fill them with FitBit Forces.
EA SPORTS Active More Workouts.
(and brothers) were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of flat stomachs danced in their heads.
And Christy in her knee socks, and Melissa in her rocking headband,
Had just settled down with their laptops to brainstorm and plan.
When out on there on Twitter arose a such a chatter,
They sprang from their chat to see what was the matter.
Away to through the windows they clicked and they scrolled,
Everyones 140 characters, a story they told.
A new Shrinking challenge soon would be starting,
With inches and pounds members would gladly be parting.
Everyone was eager and for details they yelped,
But we hadn’t quite nailed it, and needed some help.
April Ann and Nancy! Now, Heather! Now, Lisa and Thea MelissaS!
Brian Bari! On, Christy! On, Donya Jodi and Melissa!
Put your thinking caps on and get ready to write!
Our Sisters (and Brothers) need us to help them look out of site.”
As we planned and the challenge started to take shape,
We knew this was going to be the best one to date.
So we said that’s a wrap and and squealed with delight,
Shut down our laptops and called it a night .
Next Wednesday morning the revolution will begin,
All of our Sisters (and Brothers) will step on and grin.
Knowing they’ll be bidding a final farewell,
To that blasted number they see on their scales.
If you’re new to the Sisterhood, or just stopping in,
Won’t you stick around and vow with us to get thin?
You will always find support and encouragement on this site,
You should think of your friends too, and send them an invite!
So until then, dear members, just know in your heart,
We’ll help you figure out just where you should start.
These next days will be hard, but try with all your mite,
Happy Shrinking to all, and to all a good-night!
All of us at the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans would like to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas! Don’t forget to check in with us on January 1 and sign up for our newest challenge. It’s sure to be a Bootcamp you will never forget!
