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


Today is a very special day for our very own Christie! She’s finally turning 21, and will be able to imbibe legally 🙂 No, not really, but I’m not going to tell you how old she really is, because that would be rude. So please, if you will, take a moment to click down in […]

It’s been a while since we’ve had an EA Sports Active 30 Day Challenge check-in. Those of you who said you would be participating in the 30 Day Challenge, tell me…..are you STILL doing it? I have been keeping up with it.  I like the “exercise 2 days, have a day off”- I can handle […]

Wow! I am truly impressed with all of you who went above and beyond to spread the word about Lose For Good yesterday! We sure appreciate it, and I know Share Our Strength, Action Against Hunger, and Weight Watchers all do too! As promised, we have two LFG tees to give away and after viewing […]

Another week down in the Shrink For Good Challenge! Are you keeping up with the goals you’ve set for yourself?  Are you seeing the results you hoped for? If you are doing the EA Sports Active Challenge, are you keeping up with your workouts?  Is the scale headed in the right direction? Go jump on […]

I don’t like diets. I don’t like the word diet. What diet actually means is “whatever you’re eating” anyway. Yes, does have one of its meanings listed as something to do with losing weight, but let’s pretend we didn’t just go over and look at that. Besides, that’s like 2 definitions down. Let’s stick […]

.!. Today is the big day – Lose-A-Palooza – an online social media networking day to raise awareness for the Lose For Good campaign! Weight Watchers will donate up to $25,000, on top of the $1 million they are hoping to donate to Action Against Hunger and Share Our Strength for LFG! Lose-A-Palooza begins at […]

I don’t think I’ve ever done a True Confessions post here at the Sisterhood. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was my turn. Ouch. I wish I could say, aw, I’m a  rockstar and I have nothing to confess, but I’m not, and I do. I haven’t done my EAS 30-Day Challenge all weekend. […]

The weather (here, at least) feels like autum. That means – SOUP! This one is a favorite around our house. I’ve modified the original recipe from the Zolo Grill slightly to make it more points friendly. At eight, it’s not super light, but it’s filling. The cheese and sour cream do add to the points, […]

.!. I have to warn you, Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters, from General Mills, are addicting. Very, very addicting. So much so, I was half-tempted to hide them from my children and husband (because I do that sometimes, especially with all things chocolate, because when I want to indulge a little, I want my indulgence […]

I have been poring over article after article, looking for something to jump out at me to share with you guys in regards to fitness.  I am so tired- it is midnight and I just want to crawl into bed.  Nothing I read appealed to me or those things that did had already been written […]

I want to repost this today and see how many of you have made an effort to use reusable bags when you shop! I have made some progress! I would say I am at about 50% now, which leaves a lot of room for improvement, I know! I have started keeping a stash of reusable […]

Cookies, Brownies & Granola – OH MY! So, if you still haven’t gone over and checked out the offerings at Erin Baker’s Wholesome Baked Goods, do it! You won’t be sorry! You can also order Baker’s products from Amazon, which has free shipping over $25. Good stuff! By the way, I never told MY favorite…well, […]

How was your labor day weekend ?  I hope it was full of good (healthy) food and fun with family ! So get on the scale and weigh-in,  then blog your results and experiences with the Shrink for Good and EA Sports Challenges.  Then come back and  link to your post in the comments section. […]

I realize that I’m about to burst everyone’s bubbles here, and I swear I’m not looking to get anyone down.  But there is a myth amongst us, and I cannot let it go any longer.  You need to know that what you have been told is incorrect, so that you can be better educated in […]

It’s TMI Monday — er, True Confessions Monday, so here are mine and I’m gettin’ a little deep here, so I’ll show you mine if you show me yours, m’kay??? Here we go. 1. I made an entire meal for watching college football Saturday night using Weight Watchers recipes. 2. I didn’t tell anyone. So, shhhhhh. […]
