April – 4/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Today’s question comes from Tami Q. : I want to lose weight and firm up my stomach. I don’t want to have any belly sag, which I know there will be excess skin, but I want the bare minimum. So, how much toning should I get in compared to walking and aerobic to help shrink the […]

Today, we are going to take a look at Sister Spolight’s past!  Way back when we began the Sister Spotlight, we did it a little differently than we do now.  We took nominations and then chose a spotlight.  The sister spotlighted did not get to then choose the next spotlight.  When we re-introduced the Sister […]

Oh MAN.  I cannot even tell you how excited I am about this evening!  If you have never joined us for a tworkout, let me explain.  A tworkout is when we all gather around twitter while we’re watching TV, and I beat you throw out a few exercises for you to do, so we’re not […]

Welcome to another addition of True Confessions!  This is the post where we let it all out and then forget about it because it is a new day!  So, if you had a giant piece of cake that you’re feeling guilty about, confess it here!  I promise you will feel so much better! I’ll start […]

There’s a little girl inside of me.  She’s hidden; you can’t see her, but I know she is there.  She’s tucked in a far away corner in the back of my mind.  She is as much a part of me as my hair is brown or my eyes are green.  In fact, she has brown […]

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  Notice something different here? (Other than the purdy new look here at the Sisterhood?) If you’re a regular around here, you know that Wednesday is “weigh-in” day.  It still is, but we here at the Sisterhood decided to change things up just a bit.  After reading your suggestions, we asked ourselves, “Selves?  […]

How many times have you heard, “DON’T DRINK YOUR CALORIES!”? Many, many, many times, right?  Right.  And how many times have you heard that artificial sweeteners are bad, bad, bad for you?  Many times, right? (That’s true, you know.  And a whole other post.) Well, what if I told you, I have found a 0 […]

Hey gang! It’s Tuesday, and ya’ll know what that means!  It’s another Tworkout day!  I’ve noticed that not many of you have been playing along here recently, and that makes me very sad.  I know NONE of you want me to be sad, right? RIGHT?  Good.  So, I’ll see you on Twitter (on @shrinkingjeans) at […]

I was reading weigh-in posts Wednesday evening, and this post by Sarah inspired me to talk about one thing that most of us may have had problems with when it comes to fitness. By show of hands (Yes, I can see you raise your hands.  Didn’t you know that?), who here has experienced this: You […]

What’s this, you say?  I thought there was a BOCA #gno party on Twitter tonight and that meant no tworkout, right? WRONG!
