Remix Challenge Day 3 & Weigh In Day

Posted on: March 13, 2013

This was yesterday’s look where I kept the striped top from the day before.  According to this challenge that means I had to choose a different item to keep for today’s look.  The choice here was easy as I wear a dress to Weight Watchers…

What easier choice than to keep the winter white moto jacket (my newest purchase and new love!)  to add to a dress that is one of the survivors of my weight loss.  The elastic empire waist made keeping this a possibility ! I purchased this dress two years ago from Burlington Coat Factory for just $14.99 and have to say I have gotten quite a bit of use out of it…

A peek of sunshine on  a rainy day, gave me opportunity for photos…

My Weight Watcher results are as expected since I came home from vacation and craved carbs and just couldn’t seem to stop myself.  My daughter was home for Spring Break and I didn’t do much exercise and if that wasn’t bad enough, I was feeling extremely emotional…The anniversary of my mother’s passing is coming up and the sadness that she never made it to my daughter’s high school graduation (something she wanted to do so badly) coupled with the sadness that she isn’t with me to share in the joy of her college graduation in two months, just saddened me and those carbs kept calling my name…. So I gained 2.4 lbs.  No worries I know how to get back on track and will do so immediately.  This is why I chose WW, for the accountability of having to publicly face the scale and reboot myself if I went off track. My leader said that carb attack is common after vacation and the alcohol on my trip probably helped to trigger this.

I’ve never been a big wearer of  leggings with dresses, but feel it is a great transitional look until the temperatures get warmer…

 Dear Readers, Here is where this challenge gets really interesting from my point of view…. I can’t choose the jacket tomorrow because this is the item I chose from yesterday…. I could choose the dress, but don’t wish to as it is just such a prominent piece and I don’t think it will look so different in a remix, besides the fact that I would prefer to wear pants tomorrow…   So just a few accessories left to choose, but not complaining as I am loving that I have to choose one item in which to be the jumping off point for the next day’s look.  Some direction is better than none on busy weeks… Also time to switch from the neutrals to some color!  

Linking up today with GET YOUR PRETTY ON  & THE PLEATED POPPY

Gratitude:  I am grateful for my WW meeting and the wonderful group camaraderie.  I am grateful to a dear friend who reached out to me and offered her love and help.  I am grateful to a wonderful friend I made through WW who blessed me today with the gift of a DVF dress ( a dream of mine to own one)  and for the time spent together after our meeting.  I will post pictures on Saturday with “My Lucky Find’s “.  I am grateful for the nap I took today after only 3 hours of sleep last night.  I am grateful to my 17 year old for cooking dinner.

Loooovvve this outfit!! I have faith that you will climb back on the wagon and get the rest of that weight off.

thanks! exercised hard yesterday!

I know you will get right back on track! Vacations will do that to you.

Can you take the dress and make it into a skirt?

Never tried that with this dress, but a possibility…

It’s definitely easier to stay on track when the weather gets nicer, I know that motivates me. I love your shades of black and gray. And what a wonderful gift, a DVF dress! Thanks for linking up today!

I love that jacket Tracey!! I need to pull my leggings out, I haven’t worn them in a while and they look adorable on you.
Blessings,
Cyndi

I love the leggings with the dresses. And that white jacket is great!

The white jacket is amazing. Congrats on your weight loss!
