Good morning, ladies and gents! How did the first week of the weight loss challenge go? Are you finding support in your buddy? Staying accountable? Kicking ass and taking names?

As I was sitting around thinking about what to write, I realized that I’ve been going through my closet a lot lately. Which made me think of this post I wrote a couple years back. It’s definitely still pertinent, so take another look, if you please.   While clothes may not make the woman, they […]

Do you remember being a kid in school and your gym teacher telling you about the President’s Council on Physical Fitness award? I remember thinking that would be cool, but I was never motivated enough to actually go for it. I am facing the prospect of vacationing for more than half of the month of […]

There’s an ugly side to working out that no one really wants to talk about. OK, perhaps most people don’t really want to talk about it but we don’t shy away from those things here. It’s a Sisterhood. There’s safety in numbers. Recently, I was thinking about the things I’ve done during my workouts & […]

When I started this whole weight loss thing, I don’t think I had a clear idea of what was in store for me. I had my map, I had my tools, but I didn’t realize what an adventure it would be. I’m not sure if I realized how long it would take. I’m not sure […]

Good morning, friends! How are you? The weather here in North Dakota has been amazing {like 70s!!}, and I can’t even tell you what it has done for my mood and motivation! I.love.it. How was your week? Did you toot your horn yesterday? I hope so, because everyone deserves an “atta-girl” once in awhile! We’re […]

Today, I bring you a special post….very special to me.  See, my brother Greg has embarked on his own weight loss journey and asked if he could write something up for Shrinking Jeans (that’s us up above).  He wanted to write his story and be accountable to others, in addition to himself. I may have […]

You probably know this about me but I am a somewhat neurotic safety freak when it comes to going out and running on my own. I carry personal defense systems that shall not be named along with my tiny fists of fury. So when iSafe reached out to us to do a review, I was all […]

This week my Kindergartner had homework. There were little boxes on the paper and in each box he was supposed to write down something on our grocery list, spell it out how it sounds and then draw a picture to go with it. The example they gave was a picture of an apple and the […]
