Nancy – 3/10 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I love Tuesdays! Especially here at Shrinking Jeans. I love that we get to do a little bragging about the awesome things that we have done in the past week. I don’t know about you, but for me it’s a huge shot in the arm. It gets me pumped about the coming week and what […]

It’s the 30 Day Shred final check in. We have 30 long, hard, sweaty days behind us! There is something about Jillian Michaels shouting out commands to you that makes you want to dig your heels in and get it done. Did you get it done? I have a few questions for you. Did you […]

It is Toot Your Horn Tuesday, my friends! It is that day of the week when we take bragging rights for something (or things) that we were awesome at in the past week. I know sometimes it’s hard to brag about yourself, but this is the place where it is a good thing. Everyone here […]

Well my friends, it’s the halfway point in our 30 day Shred challenge. How is everyone doing? Have you kept up? Have you moved on to level 2? As I write this post, I have just completed day 12 of the challenge. That means I am in level 2. I am writing this on Wednesday […]

Back in the latter months of 2008, four wonderful women came up with an idea for a website for women. Women who’s jeans were shrinking. Women who needed some support in their efforts for weight loss and fitness. Women who needed The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans!Those four wonderful women were Christy, Melissa, Donya and […]

Cue Alice Cooper! School’s out for the summer!! I love summer vacation! I have loved summer vacation since I was a little kid in school. There are so many things to do. Sometimes it’s hard to just decide what to do. I have a few ideas though of how I plan to spend some of […]

Back when I first started the Older Sister series, I promised some challenges. It’s been over three years since we did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred Challenge and I think it’s time we older gals showed the younger girls what we are made of. I am in a weight loss and inches lost challenge […]

Strength. What does it mean to you? Is it physical? Is it mental? Is it both? Think about it. I’ve had it on my mind a lot the last few days. It first came to mind on Thursday morning. It was preschool olympics. A girl I work with and I were filling coolers with ice […]

I think of myself as an average person. A person who is just doing her best to get back in shape after years of neglect for my body. For the first time in a long time, I am serious about making this fitness and exercise journey mean something. I am serious about making it right. […]

I am resurrecting Toot Your Horn Tuesday and I couldn’t be happier. I achieved a major goal last Saturday and I want to share it with you all. Toot, toot!!! In January, I decided that it was time to get serious about my weight loss and fitness journey. I had let myself fall off the […]

I love going to classes for exercise. I love the motivation I get from the other people in the class. I enjoy the fun we have together as we grunt and pant our way through a class. But, sometimes I just can’t get out to a class and I have to workout at home. Luckily, […]

My friend Tiffany asked a question on Facebook the other day. I loved it so much, I asked her if I could use it here. She said, “Absolutely!” Here is what she said….. “In thinking this morning, I remember how easy it is to focus too much on that darn number on the scale. I […]

I was going great guns last week with weight loss, workouts and eating right. Then, BOOM! The flu hit me like a ton of bricks. Everything stopped. The only muscles that I was working were the ones I was using heaving into the toilet. Sorry, TMI! But, you get the picture. When I took this […]

You may remember that when I started the Older Sister series, I promised you some interviews. Well…..have I got an interview for you. I started blogging a little over four years ago. One of the very first people I “met” was Sharon Couto. We met over a blog post about miscarriage. We have become very […]
