Shrink-a-Versary Challenge with the Sisterhood!

Look! The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans is having a challenge to celebrate their first anniversary. It seems like yesterday that we all sat around at night and emailed back and forth to start the site and here it is a year later. Amazing. Just because I took a maternity break from it, didn't mean I wasn't going back!

So, It's my first challenge back after having the baby and I am happy to start. I would like to lose the last 11 pounds that I gained with her ( and the some)

First, let me tell yeah about the new challenge!
Not only is it a weight loss challenge, but it's a physical activity challenge too. The shrinking jeans peeps want you to get your shoes on and log all your miles. Let me repeat. The challenge wants you to log weight loss or gains and log your miles.

The best part?

(besides the fact that you are on a path to better health)

There are giveaways everyday! Yes folks, it's a Shrink-a-versary Extravaganza!

So go forth and sign up today!

Don't forget to follow them on twitter, they are a hoot! @shrinkingjeans

***my numbers***
A history of my weight:

Last year I weighed about 218#
I started shrinking jeans last November at 213#
I got down to 198#
Went to 200# and was pregnant

Delivery date I was 234#
2 weeks postpartum I was 211.5#
Today I am .... 212#

My goal is to get down to 200# by the end of the challenge. Can it be done? We will see!

How fun! I have never heard of this site. I did weight watchers online and liked it...but missed the sisterhood feeling.
Maybe after the baby is born I will try it!
