Christy – 7/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


After the complete debacle that was my weigh-in this morning, I decided to get my butt in gear and start counting my points. I mean, I actually pay for a Weight Watchers Online subscription and it just sits there, unused, wasting away. So today I drug out my trusty food scale, my measuring cups and […]

This salad is SO good, but it tastes like it’s so bad. In other words, it doesn’t feel like I’m dieting when I eat this salad. The dressing is so creamy and unlike most “light” dressings, and it keeps well in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days. From Weight Watchers […]

Yesterday was a very stressful day. All I wanted to do was eat. Luckily my visitor, Amanda (also a Sister!) helped me stay on track! She’s such a good influence. When we all sat down for dinner, she made a plate for me with reasonable portions. It was perfect. I wonder if I can convince […]

Yesterday, Lisa outlined the Weight Watchers plan, and today I’m going to outline the South Beach Diet for you. Now to be honest, I’ve never used the South Beach plan to lose weight. I’m a half-assed Weight Watchers girl. But Weight Watchers is what I know, what I’m comfortable with, it’s ingrained into my brain. […]

All I want to do today is eat. I’m not, but I’m so tempted and the day is still so young. I have several friends in stressful situations right now, and I’m kinda stressed about how much I have to do for ruby & roja and I have house guests, and I have posts to […]

I am now the proud owner of a Wii, thanks in part to Beth! She scored one for me, since Texas seems to be lacking in the Wiis, and it arrived safely in the mail today! Earlier this week, my Wii Fit arrived too. I’m ready to join the latest fitness craze and jump start […]

While searching madly through my near 20,000 photos on my hard drive for suitable before/after (the first time) and before photos I came to a sad realization. There aren’t very many of me at all. I’m always the one taking the pictures, so I’m very rarely in them. Even sadder, when I was at my […]

I made it home from Indiana on Monday night. Late Monday night. After a flight in which I was puked on twice by my 14 month old. She came down with the stomach virus hard and heavy on Sunday and couldn’t keep anything down or in. If you know what I mean…… So of course, […]

So how did you do this weekend? I feel pretty good about my weekend. I had several opportunities to indulge or go out to eat or over eat, and I chose not to. Weekends are always tough for me because my husband is home and I just want to relax and eat what I want. […]

Yesterday I stepped on the scale for the weekly weigh-in. It was the first time I’d officially weigh-in in 2 weeks and I was very disappointed to see I’d gained 6.8 pounds. VERY disappointed and shocked. I knew I hadn’t lost and figured I’d gained a few over the holidays, but 6.8? Craziness. Today I […]

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted. Far.too.long. And I’m not going to beat myself up for my eating behavior over the past 2 weeks. All I’ll say is it hasn’t been cute. At.all. NOT CUTE. With that being said, I’m very excited with where I am right now. Not my weight, but in […]

…and the pizza won. It’s been a hellish few days for me. My daughter, Mia, is sick with a mad cold. Nothing makes her happy but being held and being nursed. Can I just tell you my boobs are sore? Mkay, now that I got that out, I’m wondering if I get extra points for […]

Okay, I don’t totally agree with the title of this recipe (from WW online), and I totally added my own twist to it too! The original recipe doesn’t call for it, but I can’t imagine it without the salsa! I’ll call it Crockpot Chicken Ole’ POINTS® Value: 6 Servings: 4 Preparation Time: 0 min Cooking Time: […]

Who doesn’t love TEQUILA?!! Lisa introduced me to this Weight Watchers recipe a couple of years back and I’ve been hooked ever since. It has a little more prep than I like, but the results are totally worth it. It’s great on the grill or in the oven and delicious with Spanish rice or a […]
