Today, I bring you a special post….very special to me.  See, my brother Greg has embarked on his own weight loss journey and asked if he could write something up for Shrinking Jeans (that’s us up above).  He wanted to write his story and be accountable to others, in addition to himself. I may have […]

What? Another diet!? Yes, the Feingold Diet. I’ve had a few people ask me to post about my son’s diet. BJ is hyper. Spirited. Energetic. Go-go-go. Insanely intelligent. Talk-talk-talk. Never sits still. Sometimes, like any other child, he gets in trouble. At school. At home. Sometimes it’s more than any other child…. It’s exhausting. I […]

Nicki Caylor always wanted to follow in her dad’s footsteps and be a physician. What Nicki didn’t know was, she would follow in his footsteps to heart disease. To look at Nicki today, you would never guess that last year at the age of 29, she had a heart attack. She doesn’t exactly fit the […]

Seriously, if you would have asked me a year ago what I was going to do on Thanksgiving Day 2009, my plans would not have included getting up at 6:30am to run a 5k even though it was only 49 degrees outside after being diagnosed with a sinus infection less than 24 hours before. But […]
