Rethink Your Shrink | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

Did you discover your patterns? […]

Oh dear shrinkers, rethinkers, and rethinking your shrinkers! I cannot fathom the fact that this is the last weigh-in of the Rethink Your Shrink Challenge! Don’t pay attention to the sister behind the computer who’s getting all teary-eyed!
(Um, edited to note: Boy, we can’t get anything past you guys, huh!? No, you’re not crazy. Apparently we […]

  I’m getting a little misty-eyed over here! Rethink Your Shrink is coming to an end! Are you ready? Did you rethink? And moreover, did you shrink?

What happened over the past 7 weeks? Did you move more? Did you find victories? Did you find non-scale victories? Did you do something you’ve never done before? (And […]

I love GU. Pronounced “goo.”

GU is an energy gel. What is this energy gel I speak of? And who should be eating these? And why? Do we really need these in our lives?
Yes. But not all the time. And […]

So tell me, did you get your homework done last week? Did you read some of the letters our future selves wrote to us? […]

Hello, my peeps. It’s Tuesday. That day. The day we divulge our deepest, darkest food and exercise (or whatever) secrets. On the internet. Nothing like throwing our confessions out there to the universe to purge our consciences…

So, I have to admit that this week I’ve been quite irritable and faced a lot of, for lack of a […]

  Good afternoon, sisters!! Well, we’re getting pretty far down the line in this challenge, I can’t believe we have just three weigh-ins left! And can you believe that it’s already February? How did that happen?

We have been in this challenge since December (almost five weeks!!) and by now you’ve had a chance to either get in […]

Good morning, everyone!! Happy Friday!! How did you do on this week’s project? The task this week was to sit your butt in 2011, picture what 2010 was like, and write a letter to yourself about it. What hurdles you have overcome and goals you have met.

I really loved doing this one because I told myself that […]

Wait. What’s that say? Week FOUR?? Have we been really going at it for a month already? We are over halfway done with our Rethink Your Shrink challenge. You have joined the revolution. You have looked into your past and looked into yourself. You have contemplated what works for you and what doesn’t work for […]

We’re all good. We’re all  great. We are all wearing our little shiny halos, right? NOT!!!! Maybe I’m just speaking for myself but I gotta tell ya, I have one big confession on this True Confessions day and it all centers around last Wednesday. Oh, that fateful day.

I need to erase this week and start over. This […]

When you first start trying to lose weight, it feels like no one really believes that you’re going to stick it out. Ya know, based on past histories if you have them, like me.
At first there’s resistance. You get a lot of questions. A lot of tests. “Mom, can we buy those cookies? Honey, do you […]

Good morning!! Time for another Monday Project linkup and this one’s fun because it’s all about YOU! Well, they all are, really, but this one’s really about how freakin’ cool you are and how much you rock. The task: List 5 ways (or more) that you rock. So go ahead. Tell us how you’re awesome.

I mentioned […]

HOLLA Sisters (and brothers)! Good Weigh-in Wednesday morning! We’re so happy to see you beautiful, shining face (and your bed-head)! You know the drill!

Run, don’t walk, to your scales right now! Strip down, pee, and jump on. Did the number go down? Did it stay the same? Go up (ugh)? No matter what the number did, […]

Yay! It’s Friday!! That must mean it’s time for something that rhymes with the Schmonday Schmoject! Yep, it’s the MONDAY PROJECT! This Monday Project was special, it was supposed to be a little funner than last week’s (which totally made me cry by the way, and I mean reading about everyone’s journey!)
This week, we worked […]

    Choose You

    I’m guilty of it and you probably are too. Most women are, in fact.
    What am I talking about? Putting your own health on the back burner to attend to the needs (and, let’s face it, WANTS) of others. There’s laundry to wash, fold, and put away. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners to prepare. Sporting events, rehearsals, […]
