Welcome to the sisterhood! Here is some information to help guide you through our newest challenge!
What’s the challenge this time at the Sisterhood? Spring Fling Weight Loss Challenge and DietBet
What is DietBet? DietBet is an online weight loss game that we’re hosting. You put your money in the Shrinking Jeans ‘pot’ and then you have 4 weeks to lose 4% of your body weight. Everyone in our game who meets the 4% mark splits the pot! It’s really fun and cool. Otherwise we wouldn’t be doing it!
When does it begin and end? Wednesday, April 10 – Tuesday, May 7th. 28 Days. 4 Weeks.
The Fitness Challenge: During the month of April we have our monthly fitness calendar available! April is all about thighs!
Can I join at anytime? You are more than welcome to follow along at any point, but official registration for the DietBet part of the challenge closes two weeks in. So if you miss the start date, it’s no biggie. You’ve got two weeks.
Must I be a woman to join? Heck, no! We welcome women, mothers, brothers, fathers, absolutely ANYONE!
What do I need to do? We’ll check-in on March 13th, and then every Wednesday. If you have a blog, write about your losses, gains, successes, frustrations. Then come back to Shrinking Jeans and link back to your weekly blog post.
Do I have to participate in the DietBet? Absolutely NOT! You can just hang with us over here and check in. We’ve still got your back.
Do I have to check-in every Wednesday? We encourage you to check-in every Wednesday! Accountability is good! If you want to be eligible for prizes, you must check in on time each week!
What if I don’t want to lose weight, and just want to hang out and exercise with y’all because you’re cool? That’s great! We welcome losers, non-losers, people new to fitness, and people training for their 52nd marathon. Join the fun!
Do I have to have a blog? Nope. But you should! They’re free and journaling while losing weight is awesome. No excuses people!!!
What if I have information I want to share? Please share any thoughts, recipes, product reviews and meaningful blog posts with us. You can e-mail us anything. (Except pictures of chocolate or pizza) We’d love for this site to feel like your home, so get your running shoes on and get comfortable! More than likely we will share whatever you send us! Just keep it clean and pertinent!
You can also engage in conversation with your fellow Sisters and Brothers in the comments sections of posts.
Do you happen to have any advice for me for this challenge? Why yes we do. Take your before picture now. You will never regret it. When I look at mine, I throw my donut in the garbage and I don’t even go back and get it later.
Do I have to be on Weight Watchers to join this challenge? Oh goodness no. Do whatever works for you.
Can I put a button on my blog promoting this challenge? I certainly don’t want to keep all of this healthy goodness to myself! Goodness yes. Buttons with codes can be found up there at top under “Button Up“. Grab one of our logos buttons and the current challenge button for your blog’s sidebar. Go ahead; all the cool cats are doing it!
