weight loss – 9/14 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


So today is supposed to be review it Saturday and I don’t have anything to review, at least not with any authority. I have some new things I’ve purchased recently like a pair of Aqua Sphere Vista swim goggles but I’ve only used them once. I have a new cycling helmet I’ve had a few […]

I met Heidi from The Write Fit at Fitbloggin’ (she was the awesome chic with JumpSport Fitness Trampoline™!) and we just clicked. She told me she’d love to write for us about self-sabotage, and I’m thrilled to share her thoughts with all of you! We have all been there.  We have all been on diets, […]

I was asked to review the new book from Special K. It is called “The Special K Challenge and Beyond.” I was a little leary because I had seen all the ads for the Special K challenge. I’m not the kind of girl who can eat two meals a day and snacks of a product […]

I can say with conviction and 100% absolute certainty that I have never, ever, EVER, been a vacation exerciser. Vacation was a place to vacation — from everything a person needs a vacation from, calorie counting and exercising included. I gained 7 pounds on a cruise once. I didn’t learn from that, either. And I […]

Hello everyone, my name is Sean Willson and I’m a new writer here at the Sisterhood. While I have no formal journalistic training I have been blogging since 2000, before it was called blogging. It’s also important to mention that I’m not a sister … well, I’m an honorary sister but I’m actually a man. […]

Since I started running and subsequently doing triathlons after having my bum firmly planted on couch for quite a while post-child, I submerged myself into a sort of culture of healthiness. I write about fitness and blog about fitness and have met great friends here online and through triathlon and running groups, it’s been quite a […]

So last week I might have mentioned that this week was the LAST WEEK of the Power of One Challenge…..well, I was totally wrong. Yeah, I’m big enough to admit that I totally looked at the calendar wrong, and I obviously can’t count unless it involved subtracting numbers I see on the scale…… Anywhooooooo. You […]
