July 2010 Archives – 2/4 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I just re-joined Weight Watchers.  I figured it was time for me to do so since I am having such trouble losing these last 20 lbs on my own.  I know losing the weight is more like a marathon versus a sprint, but oh my goodness, I do believe I am the slowest “runner” out […]

It’s Friday and I want to know how you did with this week’s mini-challenge! Did you succeed? Did you find 3 ways to love yourself each day this week?

Wha? What’s this Down & Dirty business? Well, we are revealing the next challenge a whole week and a half early! Why would we do that when we usually like to keep it a big surprise? Because this challenge will involve teams (pause for the collective cheer) and we need you to scoot your booty […]

A couple of months ago, I landed in a fitness rut. I was running, running, running. And the weight? Not budging. Muffin top? It was still there. I knew I was working hard, but nothing was happening. I felt like I was in a hamster wheel. One night at the gym, I was going whole […]

Hello? Anyone there? It’s me, Crooked Eyebrow. I hope you remember me, seeing how it has been so very long since I posted here.  I’m here to run down Thursday Three with all you fine gorgeous people.  Have I told you just how wonderful you are? Not lately you say? Well you are. You know […]

We all have good days and we all have bad days, right? Here, we talk a lot about the good ones, but we leave our good friend, Tuesday, to talk about our hiccups. So today, I air all of mine, so won’t you air yours? I confess to the following: Biscuits and gravy at the Cracker […]

Lots of us have negative body images. I’m sure a lot of us have called ourselves fat, hefty, fluffy, porky, or even worse. We’ve all complained that our thighs are too big, our butt is too dimply, our arms are too saggy, and our stomach is too flabby. The things is you don’t see yourself […]

This week’s edition of Mailbag Monday is here!!! Nancy, our very own Bacardi Mama, made the decision to join Weight Watchers a couple of weeks ago, and she asked this question: I just started Weight Watchers and I was wondering if you had any special tips for me. Well, Nancy, as you know most of […]

Every week, a Sister is “spotlighted” by another Sister – it’s a great way for us to get to know even more about one another.  This week, Renee (last week’s Spotlight) has chosen a well-deserving Sister to highlight…… I want to start by thanking Tiffany for nominating me for the Sister Spotlight. I truly admire […]

How many times have you heard, “DON’T DRINK YOUR CALORIES!”? Many, many, many times, right?  Right.  And how many times have you heard that artificial sweeteners are bad, bad, bad for you?  Many times, right? (That’s true, you know.  And a whole other post.) Well, what if I told you, I have found a 0 […]

Have you ever tried chicken sausage? It’s fantastic. I never even knew it existed until I began the journey into calorie-counting and I found it as an ingredient for something on Spark People. Its whereabouts in the grocery store perplexed me so I wandered around looking for it and found it above the breakfast sausage […]

Fortunately, I can usually carve out kid free time to work out, be it during nap time, or in the evening after my son goes to bed.  My husband is really great about letting me run off to the gym for a few hours in the evening (thanks, honey!). But, there are days where my […]
