A few weeks ago, I ran across this blog. I was completely blown away by this man’s attitude and success he has had in reshaping his mindset and his physical self. He once weighed in at over 400 lbs and has managed to lose over HALF HIS WEIGHT! Amazing! I asked him if he would be willing to subject … [Read more…]

Today was Day5 of the 30 Day Shred here at the Sisterhood, and I have to say it was my best day yet! I can honestly say I loved it today!! Here’s how it all went down.

Listen, I’m about to embark on day 4 of shredding and I have good news.  I’m not as sore as I was yesterday morning!  I actually feel quite good!  Which is good because yesterday morning I stood at the top of my stairs and considered rolling down the stairs, I thought that it probably wouldn’t hurt … [Read more…]

Now I know the Sisterhood is here to help you stay motivated, to give you a place to hold yourself accountable, somewhere to come when you are feeling down and need kind words.

I am feeling a little complacent. Lazy, if you will. I have reached an all time low (weight) in my journey, and I feel like I’m stumbling, for lack of a better word.

Thea, who blogs over at I’m a Drama Mama, has been a die hard Sister since we opened our virtual doors back in November. When we brainstormed new contributors, Thea’s name was the first to pop into our heads since she worked so hard with Beth on Tales from the Scales. And it’s our lucky day, because … [Read more…]

Do y’all remember when Crooked Eyebrow posted a review on Eat This Not That, The Supermarket Survival Guide? I picked up the book while we were on vacation, and let me just say it is SO VERY INTERESTING. There are some complete shockers in there! I thought I would share some of the information to … [Read more…]

Every time I think of vitamins I always think of one of my favorite comedians, Lucille Ball doing her vitameatavegamin episode. That is a classic but what is great is now is that taking  vitamin supplements or a multi-vitamins these days does not have to be that hard. No foul smelling or bad tasting … [Read more…]

This past week I took a trip that started on Thursday. I had every intention of trying to track my points but I knew it would be hard considering we were eating out every meal!
