Sisterhood Spotlight- Mary – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I was so honored and humbled to be “spotlighted” last week.  Tiffany’s words turned me into a bawling mess.  To have such kind words said about little ole me, to be recognized in such a way- well wow, I am still speechless.  Thank you so much Tiffany- I love you!

So now it’s my turn.  I found this to be much harder than it would appear.  I want to spotlight all of you, but had to choose just ONE person.  That one person is Mary.

Pull up a chair and let me tell you about Mary.

  • She is 64 years old and she WON the title of Ultimate Shrinkvivor.  That already makes her a bad-ass in my book sorry for cussing, Mary!  Seriously, folks, SHE WON the whole darn thing.  How awesome is that? 
  • She has 6 children, 19 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren.
  • She has been married to her best friend for 42 years.
  • She started Weight Watchers back in April.
  • The first challenge you joined was the 21 Day Challenge (remember that, everyone?!).
  • I’m not exactly sure of how much weight she has lost so far but at a minimum, 15 lbs (and probably more).  Since April.  She’s a rockstar.
  • She has kicked butt in our fitness challenges, challenging herself to move her body, walk away the pounds, and shred her muscles a la Jillian Michaels.   
  • I am still getting to know her but I already know these things- she is kind, warm-hearted, sweet, dedicated and she is working so hard to lose the weight. 
  • I am SO stinkin’ proud of her success so far.
  • A little birdie told me that she has inspired her entire family to join her team on our next teams challenge- could this be true?!

The last sentence of her FIRST post about Shrinking Jeans was this:  Now maybe by not lurking and by joining in, I can be an inspiration too some day.

Mary, I have to say that “some day” has arrived as you are an inspiration to me and to many others as well.
