August 2009 Archives – 2/4 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Where were you when you first found The Sisterhood?  Do you remember how excited you were?  I know I couldn’t have been the only one excited to find such an awesome site! No matter how you found us, I know that you know what a special place this is.  We are here to support each […]

Last year, more than 12.4 million children were at risk for hunger. In the United States. That’s 17.2% of all US children, feeling hungry and not really understanding why. That’s a sobering and heartbreaking statistic, Sisters and Brothers. About Share Our Strength®: Share Our Strength® is a national organization that works hard to make sure no […]

Here we are. My first confessional. Ever. Gulp. Okay, here goes. Forgive me Sisters, for I have sinned. I had a run in with Betty Crocker this week. Emergency freak out frosting has been in the fridge all week. Cream cheese flavor – I emphasize FLAVOR because I’m pretty sure there’s not any actual cream […]

You guys are gonna hate me for this one. Here, I present to you, a “light” version of fried chicken.  ‘ It’s kind of an oxymoron, isn’t it?  Putting the word “light” right next to “fried”?  But sometimes, an occasion or your taste buds just scream for something fried, don’t they?  Life sure does get […]

Did you ever see that Seinfeld episode where Jerry was waiting for the rental car and the lady at the rental car counter said there weren’t any cars left? It’s one of my favorite episodes not just because it’s happened to me before but because I love it when Jerry gets on a rant about […]

Just a quick post to let you know we have a brand new feature here at the Sisterhood. It’s so tiny (and cute) you might not have noticed it. You see down there at the bottom of this post? That cute little red heart down there with the words Add to Favorites next to it? […]

So, I’m training for this 5k. Again. I already completed one earlier this summer, but I wasn’t very satisfied with my time.  So I decided to sign up for another one. This weight loss/exercise thing is so hard (whine). Anyway, I’m training for a 5k on September 12th and I have found myself in a […]

Brace yourselves, Sisters (and Brothers), because this is going to be packed with all kinds of excitement and information. For.real. How are you doing on the 21 Days Challenge? It’s been 14 days and hopefully those new habits are slowly forming! How are you feeling? Is it getting easier, or has it been hard? Have […]

A few weeks ago, I was asked if I would like to participate (on the behalf of SJ) in a campaign for Weight Watchers and their partners, Share Our Strength and Action Against Hunger, called Lose for Good. Being that I love Weight Watchers, and LOVE helping out good causes, of course I said YES! […]

1. Okay, fine.  I confess.  I ate a Blizzard for lunch on Saturday.  I know it’s terrible to use food to try to make me feel better, and it’s something I NEVER do.  But I did.  It was good, too.  First blizzard in ages!  (I did get a small, though!) 2.  I told you in […]

This is the day of the week when we confess our sins and triumphs! Here goes: 1.  I did not weigh-in last Wednesday, but did when I got home from L.A. I was down THREE pounds. 2. I practiced moderation while I was away. Why is it easier for me to eat better while I […]

So it’s Monday and that means only one thing- TRUE CONFESSIONS.  Now that I am getting consistent with TC, I am starting to dread Sunday nights where I sit down to think about my confessions.  Why is it that I focus on all the things I did wrong, all the things I should not have […]

Last week was one of those weeks when life just happened.  I had big plans to have a great week work out wise, and it just didn’t happen. I got my work out in on Monday.  Felt good about finishing week 2 of Chalean Extreme. Then… The stomach bug hit.  Tuesday evening and all day […]

I love zucchini, and I love peppers, and I love tomatoes.  I rarely put all three together in a sauté pan.  In fact, I rarely sauté any veggies.  I am a fresh veggie kind of gal.  However, after following this simple recipe and the absolute deliciousness it was, I will be doing it more often.  […]
