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


The Power of One: One challenge. One person. We are starting a fabulous new challenge here at the Sisterhood on Wednesday, December 29th. There won’t be teams, because this time we want you to focus on ONE person: YOU. If you’re new to the Sisterhood, and new to this whole weight-loss journey, now is the […]

How are you all doing this holiday season? Is what’s in this picture all that’s in your life right now? (It is for me.) Are you enjoying the season? Are you caught up in the hustle and bustle? Are you throwing all caution to the wind by accident on purpose? Are you stressed? Are you […]

Last week’s deserving spotlight was Renee , so this week the choice was all hers. Take it away, Renee! I am so honored to have been chosen for the Sisterhood Spotlight! The Sisterhood has been so supportive of me during my journey to healthy living. I love ya’ll! Now it is time for me to […]

For the most part, my family is a raw vegetable bunch. I normally just buy a veggie conducive to eating raw, cut it up, set out some ranch dip or hummus, and we’re good to go. But this Oriental Green Beans is one vegetable recipe that I head back to every now and then. The […]

****The Winner has been chosen and comments are closed! Congratulations to Adah!!!**** I am so, so excited to bring you all this review/giveaway. SO excited. I’m sure you’ve heard of Miraclesuit, the #1 brand of fashion control swimwear.  But did you know they make JEANS? Well, they do, and they are fantastic. In fact, they […]

OK. Let’s have a little chat, shall we? Today I want to talk about one of the basic food groups: NACHOS. (Stick with me here.) I have always, always given myself one meal of whatever I want per week. Even when I was being as strict as you can possibly imagine on calories, I set […]

Howdy, there! Seriously? Are we really almost done with this challenge already? Once again, there have been some awesome losses shown by teams this week! I know how tough it is through these dessert-laden holidays. Oh, yes I do. I am so proud of you for trying to kick the holiday weight gain to the […]

Yee-haw!  I cannot believe that we are shooting into week four of this challenge.  The holiday season is hard upon us and if you are like me, you are striving to see the forest through the trees and NOT get trapped in the commercialization of Christmas and all the things we *think* we have to do.  I […]

Hey, tweeps! I am so excited for toight’s Biggest Loser finale. This is my favorite episode! And you know what would make this episode even MORE special? If we have a killer Tworkout™ tonight! (And I have a super special prize to give away tonight!) So, join me on Twitter at 8 p.m. Central, and […]

Yes, it’s so totally true that I’ve been slacking lately. I’ve been letting my HoHoHoe teammates down for the Holiday Hoedown Challenge. Sorry girls 🙁 How have I been slacking? I haven’t been sticking to any kind of plan. Unless you count not sticking to a plan as a plan. Because if you do, then […]

This month’s project has nothing to do with ourselves and everything to do with other people. It’s not about weight, it’s not about confidence, it’s not about eating this or that. It’s about giving. Because it’s the season of giving. Are you taking part in this month’s project? What you can do: Any single act […]

Good morning! This morning it’s Deb’s chance to spotlight a sister (and have I mentioned how glad I am that she was chosen to shine in the spotlight last week, she’s so awesome!) I have to say her choice this week is  a great one! Wow! I couldn’t have been more surprised if someone had told […]

* Updated with winners…check the comments! Winners, please contact me at [email protected] with your snail mail info. And congrats! Microwave meals. To be honest, I usually avoid them. Why? For the most part, they’re too processed. Tasteless.  Just, well, not fresh tasting. So let’s just say I was more than pleasantly surprised when I tried […]

It happens every year. Every year, I vow that I am not going to get as stressed as I did the year before. I would get my shopping done early. I would be more protective of my time. I would let some of the little holiday extras fall by the wayside. And every year, I […]

He-eeeeey, Ho-oooooo. Based on all the numbers this week, we have some teams who are kicking ass, and we have some teams who are fizzling. Which group are you in? Here are the results of this week’s weigh-in. Keep in mind that the Weight Lost Leaderboard is the cumulative %, meaning over the whole challenge; […]
