April – 2/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I wrote the title above with a whole other post in mind, yet this is what came out. I know it isn’t our typical post here, but I think it fits and is something I really wanted to say. I hope you enjoy. Happy Friday! 🙂       I sat there looking at my […]

Why are you here? A lot of times I see that the people who find us are in need of a little motivation and support in their weight loss/healthy living journeys. I love being a part of something that has become so big in a lot of people’s lives. There has been nothing better than […]

  Today is April’s birthday!!! I wish were awesome enough to write her an ode. Without her around here, we wouldn’t be in #tworkout mode. She is filarious and swell, we love her a lot, and without her around this place would just got to pot. I think I will stop, because a poet I’m […]

My dogs come inside every night and flop themselves onto the floor, roll onto their backs, and wiggle back and forth as if to say, “I am so happy to be alive!” Sometimes, I watch them and think how easy their lives are. How nice it must be to be so carefree. Sometimes, I wish […]

Happy Friday to you all! I’m wondering…. Would you play a game with me? Our Sisterhood is constantly changing and seeing new people, and sometimes it’s impossible to keep up, so I thought on this fine Friday, we would play a little game so that we can see all of the new faces. I’m also […]

Back in the olden days when I was, oh, around 28 or 29 (you know, like 4 or 5 years ago), I was well over 200 lbs. Honestly, I couldn’t tell you how much I weighed because I refused to get on the scales. I was extremely unhappy with the way I looked. Had you […]

Last night, I had plans to meet a friend at a sports bar to watch basketball before going to a local club for a friend’s birthday party. I had it all planned what I was going to eat, and I’m going to tell you now, it wasn’t healthy. Normally, this doesn’t bother me. If I […]

Dear Friends, I’m wondering… Will you play a game with me? Here lately, I’ve seen a lot of new faces, and I was thinking we should play a game to all get to know each other better. So this is how it’s going to work: 1. Give us your name. 2. Tell us how you […]

Hello and welcome to True Confessions! If you’re new around here, today is the day that we confess anything we may be feeling guilty about from last week. Once we confess, we don’t feel guilty anymore because today is a new day. A new week, and we will do better, right? Right. I’ll start us […]

I’m about to get all Sci-Fi geek on you, but I promise if you stick with me, it’ll make sense. Ready? One of my favorite shows is Stargate. (Oh, don’t roll your eyes at me.) On Stargate, there is a race of people known as the Ancients. The Ancients are human but have been around […]

Anyone else just loving this challenge?  I love love love that we are ALL focusing inward, making ourselves better and better and better.  You, too?  Raise your hand high in the air if you agree….go ahead, do it now.  You girls/guys/hookers/rock stars/pimp daddies know how much we love you, right?  We love you so much that […]

We are all here because we have one thing in common. We are all striving to live a healthier life. If you’ve been here for any length of time, you’ve (hopefully) realized by now that these journeys that we are all on are about more than just weight loss. When I first began to lose […]

I’m going to be honest here, I’ve posted this recipe before, but it really is one of my favorite Sunday dishes (I eat dinner with my parents every Sunday) and I thought it’s worth posting again. Add a side like grilled veggies and you have the perfect Sunday supper. Modifications: Sometimes I have a hard […]

And we’re going to help cheer him on in his last week of preparation during this week’s Tworkout! So, join us (@shrinkingjeans) and @SubwayFreshBuzz over on Twitter at 8 p.m. […]

I’m sure that, by now, many of you have read a certain article published on a certain famous magazine’s site. The article discussed the topic of being uncomfortable by seeing overweight people make out on TV. Unfortunately, the article went from bad to worse to worse in less than 500 words. If you are like […]
