Olive and Black- Weigh In Day

Posted on: January 16, 2013

Yesterday was suppose to be weigh in day,but since I am still not at 100% I decided to save my energies for my anniversary instead.  This is what I intended to wear to Weight Watchers…

I have been wearing a lot of skinnys and jeggings lately, so thought it was time to switch it up to these olive bootcuts.  I purchased these in anticipation of my weight loss when they went on clearance via QVC for just $12.oo   I had these in three colors in  a larger size  before I began losing weight and loved them a lot.   I am glad that I had the forethought to order them in a few sizes smaller and my goal size.  They are moleskin and just feel so comfortable. I think this makes a great Mom on the Go look!

This top is a perfect example of versatility as it is short sleeve and cinches in with an empire waist.  I wore this when I was heavier and got a kick out of how loose the tie was and having to undo it and tighten it in order to wear it today.  I will wear this in the spring with black, khaki and olive shorts or capris.  This sweater is Talbots and was thrifted.  I love that it is knit and that it ties and hits at the empire detail of the shirt.

I haven’t been to a Weight Watcher meeting since the week before Christmas.  It will be good to get back on track.  I hope I feel well enough to work out soon, but am still congested and feeling worn out and having to nap. I am not surprised as I have seen how this flu has affected the other members of my family who began this two weeks before me. I have already said that i lost my 5lb holiday weight gain last week when I was so sick and had no appetite. According to my scale I am exactly back to the last official weigh in at WW.    I am now  looking at the last ten pounds of my weight loss journey and ready to get there and move on to learning maintenance.  Maintenance is a whole other phase in this journey and comes with it’s own hurdles. I know these last ten pounds will be the hardest to lose and am prepared to work hard to get there.

Dear Readers, if you have ever lost weight and have any advice to keeping my head on straight during these final pounds, I am all ears!   As always your comments are welcomed and appreciated!  

Gratitude-  I am grateful that I am back to my pre-holiday weight gain and that my appetite is coming back.  I am grateful that I am well enough to start back up with homeschooling.  I am grateful that the language arts unit is on a play from the French Revolution and has captured my son’s interest.   I am grateful that my seventeen year old son’s teachers are all being so helpful with the missed work from his absences due to the flu.  

My current prayer is that my daughter finds an internship in the next week.  She has had nothing but rejections and has a one week deadline to find one or she will not meet her graduation requirements…. Four years of working so hard and it comes down to something she doesn’t control….

Keeping fingers crossed for your daughter. That has to be so frustrating! The color of your pants is beautiful. What a great pair of pants and very versatile. Good luck at WW tonight! Heather

Happy Anniversary!

I love the sweater. It is very flattering.

I am getting back on track with my weight loss too. It was fun to spluge a little over the holidays but now it’s time to get serious again. 🙂

Yes depriving ourselves of holiday fun is asking too much! Getting back on track now is necessary!

Love your graphic print top!
Hope your daughter finds an internship!

Another beautiful outfit! Love, love, love!

Congratulations on your weight loss. I am just starting my own journey, so I’ve really been enjoying your blog.

Good luck on your weight loss journey!
