Well, we’re 2 weeks into the Looking Fine for Valentine’s Challenge! How are you doing? Is the weight starting to come off? We hope so. We also put up a poll on the sidebar. Over there on the right, down just a little. We really care what you think! Afterall, this site isn’t just for us, it’s for … [Read more…]

.!.I’m visiting Beth and her husband Brian. We’re having fun, let me tell you. So much. And you’ll be proud to know that Brian is totally keeping me in check on my eating. At least he’s trying! Like this evening when I opened up the birthday cake box and he said, “you know, I didn’t have any … [Read more…]

I know, I know, I know. Another number. Like you don’t already have enough to keep up with, with all this weighing in and counting points and calories and nachos. But trust me, you want to know what your Body Mass Index is. It will open your eyes. Body Mass Index, or BMI, is a numerical value of … [Read more…]

So how did you do this weekend? I feel pretty good about my weekend. I had several opportunities to indulge or go out to eat or over eat, and I chose not to. Weekends are always tough for me because my husband is home and I just want to relax and eat what I want. I don’t want to worry about counting … [Read more…]

Don’t tell her we told you, but today is our very own Melissa’s 30th birthday!! Head on over to her blog and wish her the happiest of happy birthdays! Melissa, I hope you have the most wonderful birthday EVER. Thirty is great, I promise. I’m a three year veteran, and it get’s better every single … [Read more…]

I’m a quick and easy kind of girl. No, not like that! Get you minds out of the gutter. This is not that kind of site!! So, I really love canned soup. But I’m a bit of a soup snob. I cannot stand the condensed soups you have to add water to. Sorry, that’s just gross. Everytime I hit the grocery … [Read more…]

Yesterday I stepped on the scale for the weekly weigh-in. It was the first time I’d officially weigh-in in 2 weeks and I was very disappointed to see I’d gained 6.8 pounds. VERY disappointed and shocked. I knew I hadn’t lost and figured I’d gained a few over the holidays, but 6.8? Craziness. Today I … [Read more…]

Don’t put away your scales yet ladies (and gentlemen) because today is weigh-in day with the Sisterhood. Just a few weeks ago we all took on a challenge that had us dreaming of a light Christmas. The challenge is over now and we’re wondering, did it work for you? Are you lighter? Healthier? Do you … [Read more…]

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted. Far.too.long. And I’m not going to beat myself up for my eating behavior over the past 2 weeks. All I’ll say is it hasn’t been cute. At.all. NOT CUTE. With that being said, I’m very excited with where I am right now. Not my weight, but in my mind. I’m still … [Read more…]

Holy cow. Did Christmas just really happen? I mean seriously? Is today REALLY New Year’s Eve? Yes, yes, yes, I know. Not all of us at the Sisterhood were present during this oh-so-difficult dieting hurdle. Heck, some of us even gained a couple of pounds. Yeah, I know, it sucks, but we are trying to … [Read more…]

It’s almost Christmas! I’m sure you knew that, right?! So my inlaws are in town and today and the next few days promise to be a crazy whirlwind of gifts and outings and eating. Oh, the eating. I’m trying really hard, but it’s so hard. There are so many opportunities to eat so many wonderful things … [Read more…]

Yes, ladies (and man), it’s that time again. We are so proud of you for making it this far!! Time to pull the old scale out, blow the dust off, and step on. Are the numbers dropping for you? Good! If not, that’s okay too, but buckle down because we’re about to enter the hardest two weeks of the … [Read more…]

…and the pizza won. It’s been a hellish few days for me. My daughter, Mia, is sick with a mad cold. Nothing makes her happy but being held and being nursed. Can I just tell you my boobs are sore? Mkay, now that I got that out, I’m wondering if I get extra points for all the nursing I’ve been … [Read more…]

Wow, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted. I haven’t fallen off the wagon or anything, luckily, just been very busy. My 12 month old has been sick since Thursday and I’ve spent all of my extra time cuddling with her. I’ve done well with my eating, I just haven’t had time to actually enter my … [Read more…]
