Spring Forward Weight Loss Challenge, Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans


Welcome to a brand new weight loss challenge from the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans! If you’re new around here, welcome! We host these challenges regularly, and I think it’s safe to say that although losing weight is hard, we have fun losing it together. There’s lots of support, camaraderie, and kicks in the ass when you fall off the wagon!

This is our first time to team up with DietBet for a weight loss challenge, and as you can see, we’ve already had a great response from so many people. Our game already has more than 160 players with a pot over $4,000!! The challenge will run for 4 weeks – 28 days! For more information, please check out our Current Challenge page.

Weight Loss Challenge {Spring Clean You!}

So here we are….Spring is upon us, and I don’t know about you, but I’m itching to ditch the clutter. And I’m not just talking about the pile of magazines on my kitchen counter and the dust bunnies running around under my furniture. I’m talking about the clutter around my waist, on my ass, and holding on for dear life to my thighs. My *ahem* winter coat, for lack of a better phrase. This challenge is aimed at helping Spring Clean You. From the inside out. Body, mind, and soul. And we don’t mean with some crazy lemonade drinking, cabbage soup eating, 3 day on again diet. There is no magic pill, and while you might lose a chunk of change on the scale quick with those methods, you’ll be miserable and gain it all back. Totally a waste of time. Trust us. We’ve been there a time or two. We’re all about doing it right here at the Sisterhood which means: eat less food and make sure it’s real, move your body more, get plenty of sleep, and drink your water. You’re body cleanses itself, yo.

Ready to join in the game and clean up with a little cash? Then head over to our DietBet page. It’s really quite simple and can be done in the privacy of your own home! Just weigh in, pay your $25, and everyone who loses 4% of their body weight over the next 28 days will split the pot. The $4,000+ and still growing pot. Now don’t worry if you can’t get to it today. You can still register for the challenge over the next 2 weeks, BUT regardless of how late you register, you still have that 4% number to lose. So basically, get your butt in gear and get registered!

If you aren’t interesting in joining our Spring Clean Your Body DietBet game, that’s no biggie. We will still have our handy-dandy check-in post here each Wednesday, so please stop in and let us know how you’re doing! We won’t have a weigh in form, but if you blog, please leave your link in the comments so we can come give you high fives.

So what do you do now? Well, dust of that scale, get on it, and then KISS that number goodbye because you’re never gonna see it again. Then blog about it if that’s your thing, or just leave a comment letting us know you’re with us!

WIN: Each week, one random person who checks in on Wednesday by midnight PT will win a $20 Amazon or iTunes gift card!

If you’re new to weight loss, or just looking to change things up, we highly recommend using my MyFitnessPal. It’s totally FREE and their database of foods and restaurants is the best. You can track online or on your  smart phone. Easy peasy.

Spring Clean You {Weekly Challenge}

Each week, we’ll have a little extra challenge for you! Nothing crazy, but definitely something that will help Spring Clean YOU! This week our challenge is:

Bottoms up! Drink water now. Lots of it. Like 1/2 of your body weight in ounces. Yeah, you might wear a hole in the carpet down the hallway to the bathroom, but think of all the extra steps you’ll be getting! We’re serious, it’s the best thing you can do for your body, and a great way to kick start weight loss.

If you’re already sippin’ to the max, here’s some extra credit: drink only water and cut out all carbonated beverages and alcohol. BAM!

Still not convinced? Here are some more great reasons why you should hit the water bottle hard.

Tommy’s Team – Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago

As hosts of a DietBet Game, we earn a small commission for each person who plays, and we’ve decided that we want a portion to benefit a charity. When I received an email from Erin last week about her son Tommy’s Epilepsy Foundation of Greater Chicago 5K, I knew we had our charity. Erin has been around for awhile, and although her skinny ass never really needed to lose weight, I think our peer pressure may have turned her into a bad mother runner, and now she’s one of our Couch-to-5K mentors. Basically we triple puffy heart Erin, and we admire her for her strength as she advocated for her sweet baby as they navigated the scary waters of seizures and an epilepsy diagnosis. So yeah, we’re kicking some money her way to help her team out, and we encourage you to do the same. When you play the DietBet Game, you can also play for a charity, which you select, to receive all or part of you winnings. If you’re just awesome and want to donate directly to Tommy’s Team we won’t stop you! Do that right here, right now!
