Christy – 5/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I’m on day 2 of religiously tracking my points and entering them into Weight Watchers online. And you wanna know what? It feels GREAT! So empowering and important. I knew that if I could get back on track, it wouldn’t be so hard. So how are you doing? Do you track points? Have you fallen […]

As you know, this site is all about shrinking. You shrinking, me shrinking, everybody shrinking! We’re here because our jeans are/were too tight, heck all of our clothes are too tight. Our goal is shrink so we can buy new, smaller jeans! So tell me, when you’re done shrinking, what is the one thing you […]

Once again, it’s time for some fessing up 🙂 I am still weighing myself everyday. Sometimes more than once a day. My weight is going up instead of down this week. That really pisses me off because I’m doing so good this week. I’ve even worked out or gone hiking most days. And I never […]

1st Mini-Challenge The first mini-challenge of the Shrink Into Summer Challenge is geared to those of you who have Wii Fit. We’re going Hula!! Now, I know not all of you have a Wii or a Wii Fit, so maybe this challenge is just the reason you need to go out and get one! You […]

I’m not the type of person who fishes for compliments. I do what I do here at the Sisterhood because I love it. It fulfills me. It makes me happy to know I’m providing motivation for someone else. I’ve even made some really wonderful friends here. Friends I cannot imagine my life without! April is […]

As I started to prepare for this post, I thought I knew all about the food pyramid! You know, it’s a pyramid, it tells you how much of each food group you should eat, and it’s, um well, a pyramid! How complicated could it be right? Well, get ready for lots of links!! The Dietary […]

I got a new range and decided to try out the convection feature. I baked cupcakes. They were mini cupcakes. I ate more than I care to admit. Well, I actually can’t admit how many I ate because I lost track. They were the best cupcakes EVER. I won’t be baking anything for a long […]

I was just reading through my new Whole Living magazine and came across an article on Eating Right for Under $15.  One of the recipes sounded really good, and although I haven’t tried it, I thought I’d share it with y’all. This yummy-sounding recipe packs in 18 grams of fiber and a whopping 19 grams […]

My all time favorite Italian restaurant, Vinny’s, has cooked up a little dish just for me and the Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. Well, I’m sharing it with you, so it’s for you too! I’m really good friends with the owners of the restaurant and one of them has been on and off of Weight […]

In the past 2 weeks, I’ve been out of town visiting Lisa and then I came home to house guests for 7 days! Needless to say I’ve been super-busy and had lots of fun. I’ve been absent from the Sisterhood, and I’ve missed y’all. I’m proud to say I’ve been maintaining despite eating almost every […]

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. The Sisterhood is all of that and more! But  now, I’m encouraging you to take a step further and find a friend […]

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. I WANT to lose the rest of the weight, believe me I do. I just feel like I’m lacking in motivation, which […]

Tonight Lisa and I went to my favorite store in the whole wide world – Target. Yeah, I love me some Target. Especially Super Target where I can buy my son a toothbrush, my daughter’s entire summer wardrobe, some avacados, and a few really awesome shirts that fit. Oh, did I mention shoes, too? Thank […]

My laptop hard drive crashed on Saturday. Forty-eight hours ago. I am without my lifeline to the outside world and it feels so wrong. Dell promises to have another hard drive in my sweaty, shaking palms soon, hopefully by tomorrow. In the meantime, I’m forced to use my dinosaur desktop, which won’t even load most […]

Can something this good only have 110 calories, no fat, and 7 grams of fiber per serving? The answer is YES it can. Meet The Alternative Bagel. And because these little babies pack such a punch of fiber, they’re only 1 Weight Watchers Point! How amazing is that? I don’t know about you, but I’m […]
