The Thursday Three | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Yesterday was weigh in day, and we couldn’t help but notice that some of you are really struggling. Struggling with gains, with maintaining, with small losses. Well, this Thursday Three is going to be a gentle reminder, that it’s not always going to turn out exactly the way you want it to.

Losing weight is not easy, and I’m going to share 3 thoughts with you to help you understand what we’re trying to teach you here at the Sisterhood.

Thought #1: Everyones’ weight-loss, just like everyones’ fingerprint, is unique. Please don’t compare yourself to others when it comes to this journey, because what works for one person, might not work for you. Whether it’s Weight Watchers, counting calories, or simply journaling your food, there is something that will work for, you just have to discover it!

The Daily Plate

Remember, what works for one person, may not work for you. You have to figure out what works for you, and that may take some time.

Thought #2: Rethink Your Shrink. Yes, that’s the name of our Challenge, but have you been playing along? This challenge is about rethinking what did and didn’t work for you in the past. We are examining ourselves from the inside out, and getting our heads, hearts, and bodies in the game!

Put on your thinking caps and get to work on some of the amazing assignments you’ve been given, or if you’ve already done them, go back and review them. Daily. Open your mind and your heart and really think about your words and your thoughts. Dig deep.

And go read April’s post, because it’s spot on.

Thought #3: For Pete’s sake, stop being so down on yourselves! You cannot FAIL on this journey. Yes, you may stumble, but that is part of this journey, and you can’t learn if you don’t mess up. And when you have a bad day or week or month, own it and move one. There’s nothing you can do to change what’s happened in the past, you can only focus on what you’re going to do from this moment on and move forward. One day at time, one small goal at a time, one victory at a time.

If you pay attention, there are so many small victories along the journey, and if you take the time stop and celebrate each small victory, the trip will be so much sweeter.

In closing, we want you to know that the Sisterhood is here for you. We love you if you lose, we love you if you gain, and we love you if you stay the same. Our support for you is undying, and our hope for you is success. And if you need a swift kick in the ass, just let us know where you live, and we’ll arrange for one of us to be there do it as soon as possible. (Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)
