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


It’s time for the Sister Spotlight! Last week’s spotlighted sister was the lovely Karena. Her pick? Fantastic. Read on… ******* I was gob-smacked when I saw that Kirsten had chosen me for the Sisterhood Spotlight. I felt like I should drop to my knees and genuflect, chanting, “I’m not worthy!” Thank you so much, Kirsten, […]

Hello.  My name is April, and I have a history of yo-yo dieting.  I’ve gained weight, lost weight, gained it all back and then some, lost more, gained it again, lost it again.  Sound familiar? One of my problems way back when was that when I gained weight, I told myself that I could lose […]

When you’re dealing with an injury, or multiple injuries, it really messes with your mind. You’re supposed to be resting up so your body can heal. Resting equals idle body. Idle body equals mind that has way too much time to think about the idle body and how much it’s driving you insane to be […]

All of us here at the Sisterhood want to give a huge shout of congratulations to Brian, our beloved Brother in shrinkage, for the newest addition to his beautiful family. His lovely wife, one of my dear friends, Beth gave birth to a bouncing baby boy yesterday, March 29th. Head on over to Beth’s to […]

Yesterday was weigh in day, and we couldn’t help but notice that some of you are really struggling. Struggling with gains, with maintaining, with small losses. Well, this Thursday Three is going to be a gentle reminder, that it’s not always going to turn out exactly the way you want it to. Losing weight is […]

HOLLA Sisters (and brothers)! Good Weigh-in Wednesday morning! We’re so happy to see you beautiful, shining face (and your bed-head)! You know the drill! Run, don’t walk, to your scales right now! Strip down, pee, and jump on. Did the number go down? Did it stay the same? Go up (ugh)? No matter what the […]

Rethink Your Shrink is about changing from the inside. It’s about looking back so that you can move forward by changing the present. We will re-evaluate our eating habits, our patterns, our obstacles and our activity levels. We will take with us what worked in 2009 and dispose of what didn’t. Good morning SISTERHOOD! It’s weigh-in day, […]

Here we are!!! Calling all sisters in the spirit of weight-loss and fitness! It’s day one of the first challenge of the new decade!! It’s the day we’ve all been waiting for since the cheese cube reared its ugly head during that holiday cocktail party this year! (Perhaps even longer!) Yes ladies, it’s time to […]

I took a trip down memory lane this week, Sisterhood-style. I went and read posts from the very beginning of Shrinking Jeans. Almost a whole year has gone by. Sisters (and brothers) have come and gone, some of you have just come upon us, but there are a select few who were there for us […]

You guys thought we forgot about weigh-in today, huh? Of course we didn’t forget.  We just wanted to prolong it as long as possible. So yeah, go ahead and do that favorite Wednesday morning (or afternoon or evening) thing that you like to do called WEIGH-IN.  The only time this is my favorite Wednesday thing […]

Now isn’t that a mouthful!!? November marks the one-year anniversary of The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans. ONE YEAR! In the past year, we’ve had 6 weight loss challenges, several fitness challenges, and mini-challenges galore. We have members who’ve been with us from day 1, and we’ve been joined by so many wonderful people along […]

Gather ’round Sisters and Brothers, because I have a very exciting story to tell. You see, it all started about a year ago when a couple of girls with uncomfortably tight jeans decided they wanted to shrink, and encourage other people to shrink, too. Then they recruited a guy, which kinda screwed up the whole […]

Wednesday night I went to my very first meeting for a triathlon group I just joined. It has taken me literally months to get the cajones to go join this club, I’ve been stalking their messageboard the entire summer. They’re real athletes with real purpose, it’s all very intimidating because here I am, the biggest […]
