Christy – 6/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I recently came across this article on WebMD when searching for ideas on healthy eating in children. Since I began dieting 3 years ago, I’ve made it a point to try and instill healthy eating habits and positive feelings for food in my children. This article touches on lots of the things I try to […]

I stay up way too late. As a matter of fact, it’s 11:3o p.m. right now. This won’t post until tomorrow morning… I ate way too much fiber today. Need I say more? I’m so tired, I can’t think of anything to confess. Let me think harder……. Ah, I haven’t counted my points at all […]

I am not looking forward to tomorrow’s weigh-in. I just don’t have a good feeling and I HATE that. Lisa visited me over the past 5 days and we planned out menus and stuck with them. I felt like I did a really, really good job and only consumed a couple of adult beverages. I […]

*********Husband, if you’re reading this, it contains an anniversary present spoiler, so please close your browser now. Thanks. Love you 🙂 ***************** One of my favorite things to do when Lisa and I get together (besides eat!) is scrapbook. It’s fun, therapeutic, relaxing and productive! I have some wonderful memories that have been creatively (and […]

Lisa and the kids are here visiting and we’re having a great time!! It’s so nice to have them here. Our kids get along great and have so much fun together. Lisa and I worked all week to plan our menu for her visit. Last night we had our first planned meal of shredded pot […]

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! My good intentions flew out the window on the drive and hasn’t been seen again until today! So I’m going […]

Yes, I’m home, and I’m so glad. Don’t get me wrong, I had a WONDERFUL time, but is it just me, or do you feel so unsure when you’re away from home? Unsure of whether you’ll be able to stick with your plan, unsure of whether you’ll be able to resist all the tempting food? […]

I am sitting in a hotel room in San Antonio, Texas. Home of world famous Mexican food. Tex Mex. The REAL deal, y’all. I’m wondering if I’ll be able to maintain control or if I’ll be sayin’ buh-bye the 140s as quickly as I said HELLO. I’m so torn. I mean I want to be […]

Oh, I am a sucker for mashed potatoes! Yes, you can eat mashed potatoes when you’re dieting. And you can eat them without worry! I’ve tried several light recipes and they just never seem to fit the bill. I like creamy and flavorful (um, see above!) and this recipe really delivers. The freshly grated Parmesan […]

I am so very happy to have moved into the 140s this week. I feel like I’ve been running backwards for the past two months, and now I’ve finally taken a huge leap forward! I’ve been sitting here going over the past week in my mind and I want to make a note of what […]

I have counted and logged every single piece of food I’ve eaten this week. I’ve actually been kinda OCD about it. The thing is, since I’m a chronic weigher, I just don’t see the weight coming off. It’s kinda depressing actually. I’m not looking for sympathy or help finding excuses or anything. I think it’s […]

Just a couple of weeks ago, Beth and I were discussing the need for a WW mobile app for her iPhone (gag, okay, I’m just jealous). We dreamed of being computer geeks and coming up with the app and selling it for like $2 to eleventy billion people and then we’d be gazillionaires. Well, someone […]

Do you like sandwiches? I do. As a mom, it seems like at least one meal a day (and sometimes 2) includes a sandwich. Grilled cheese, peanut butter & jelly (no, not for me, silly!), lunchmeat, BLT (with turkey bacon), etc. Sandwiches can be anything you want them to be. But bread’s not so good […]

Today I feel great! I’ve been counting and logging every single point since Wednesday and it feels empowering to know exactly what I’m consuming!! I’m also more aware of my fruit/vegetable intake as well as my dairy. I’ve always been pretty good with my veggies, but I fail on dairy. I love milk and cheese […]

I’m always looking for a good side dish. Seems like there are tons of light main dish and dessert recipes out there, so I’m on a mission to find appetizers, snacks, and sides. Stay tuned for some more great recipes. I do try to test out recipes, but with 2 little ones and a husband […]
