Happy New YOU! | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC



If you’re new here at the Sisterhood, Saturday is usually the day we review and sometimes giveaway cool products. It might be our favorite new food item, a workout DVD, or a great cookbook. But…….

Today is the very first day of 2011!!


So many people start diets today for that very reason! But we want you to realize that it’s not just a brand new year, and a brand new decade, BUT it’s the perfect time for a brand new YOU.

A brand new you!

Whether you have 10 pounds or 200 pounds to lose; if you are sedentary and want to get it in gear; if you are just starting or have been at it for awhile – we’re glad you’re here. If you’re new to losing weight, let us help guide you in the right direction. We’ve tried a lot of things around here, and we’re pretty savvy when it comes to what works and what doesn’t! If this ain’t your first rodeo, don’t worry. We have lots to offer you as well. The most important thing we can offer you is support. Good new-fashioned online friendships, commiseration, high-5s, WOOTS, and pick-me-ups. We’ve got your back, and then some. You also have something very special to offer the Sisterhood as well. You can offer support to all the other wonderful women and men who come here for the same reasons as you. That’s how it works here!!

You can find the details on our newest challenge, the Power of One, here. You can grab an awesome badge for your blog too! If you’re looking for some new recipes for the new you, we’ve got you covered. Thinking about starting a new fitness routine? Why not give the Couch to 5K program a go? It’s awesome! You can also join our online community – the ‘hood. It’s members only (meaning private) and a wonderful place to meet new friends with common interests!

Start clicking around and using that little search box up there on the right. We’ve got thousands of posts full of personal stories, struggles, advice, humor and hardships. Bookmark our site. Like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. Immerse yourself in the Sisterhood, and all of our people, and we’ll work out hardest to keep you motivated this year.

Losing weight isn’t easy. It’s hard work for the body, mind, and soul. There will be good weeks and bad weeks and weeks where you just feel like giving up. But don’t, because you can do it! All of us have been successful – some of use have reached our goals and some of us are still on our way.


  • This is a marathon not a sprint.
  • You will have days that suck, but you always get a clean slate tomorrow.
  • Don’t completely deny yourself the things you love.
  • This is a lifestyle, not a quick fix. Learn to live it.

Happy New Year, and Happy New YOU!

Edited to add: I would like to thank all of the wonderfully amazing women and men who have been here at the Sisterhood FOREVER! I won’t name any names for fear of leaving someone out, but you know who you are. You are the backbone of this site. The support system. Our motivators and the reason we keep doing what we do everyday. WE LOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU HOOKERS!
