So,  last week I showed you my knee length coats and promised to finish this week with the shorter ones.   Here is a quick view of the ones I showed last week in case you missed them. 

Now on the ones you haven’t see before:

This first one I purchased and wore all the time last year.  That was when I was 34 pounds heavier… So adjustments had to be made: 

I just took the two buttons in the back and moved them over two inches and buttoned the sash piece back on which tightened it by quite a bit.

The next three are all the same coat in different colors. I bought them on clearance at the end of the season last year for just $26 each from QVC.  The first one is a merlot color. Sorry for the lighting as I was trying to get these photos done before a storm was blowing in… 

These coats are all too big now, but I adjusted the above  Merlot one, by taking it from a single breasted to a double breasted and love how it turned out.  My plan is to make the same back adjustment as above to these when I lose the additional 20lbs to my goal….

Here is the navy blue one which has not been altered yet…I really needed this basic color in the shorter coat, as I had no other neutral..

And just for emphasis to show what I am really dealing with…Just another challenge to contend  with in my weight loss journey…

No need to put this one on as it also is not altered, yet and that storm is coming in….

This last one was purchased last year from Sam’s Club and did not fit me.  I knew I wanted to lose weight and bought this in anticipation of doing so.. It is a Kenneth Cole and I love it.  The hat is a recent purchase from Walmart.  I love hats!

Maybe next year, I would like to add something in brown and maybe a hounds-tooth print.  I recently saw a Calvin Klein hounds-tooth at Macy’s that I fell in love with but too expensive and no need to make big purchases until I reach my goal size…

Gratitude- I am grateful for the silence of my phone today and the cessation of the political phone calls.  I am grateful for the right to vote  and to be a citizen of The United States Of America.  I am grateful for fuzzy warm blankets to cuddle up with on cold nights.  

Tomorrow I announce my first Challenge as a blogger!

Dear Readers, comments are welcomed and appreciated…

This week I didn’t get to exercise like I wanted to ,but did so some strength training which was quick each day.  I had a busy week getting ready for my daughter to come home and a busy weekend.

I am proud of solving a major problem in my weight loss journey.  You see, I have always had an issue with lunches, skipping  them and being ravenous by 3:oo pm.  In the beginning of my weight loss journey I was really good at doing lunches, but after the first 20lbs lost stopped doing well with that.  I need to create good habits for my personality and lifestyle.  Cooking lunches is never going to be my thing.  It did work in the beginning because I was so gung-ho but reality has set in…

So how did I resolve this issue? Easy, convenience foods that pack a punch.  Here is a sample of my new lunches:

I vary the fruit and switch from nuts to sunflower seeds.

And Now for my Weight Watcher Weigh in Results-    I lost 1.6   lbs this week! Weight Watcher total lost 25.4

Outfit Details

White Top- Taylor Marcs- Sam’s Club last year

Cobolt Skirt- Chadwicks- last year

Tassle Necklace- Avon-recent

Shoes- Payless- remixed and recent

Belt- from a Jacket I wore on “That Girl Post” and a neccessary addition as my weight loss made skirt waist loose.  Funniest thing ever because this skirt couldn’t even zip up when I got it and the lines were all wavy from being stretched.

I am having so much fun reaping the benefits of my total weight loss of  34   lbs.   So glad I started this blog at this time and can’t wait to see myself transition as I continue on my weight loss journey.

These are my first shots using my son’s great camera and with the help of my daughter as my photographer.  Once she got past waiting for the perfect face and just shot a bunch of photos things went well.  It was a family affair as both my 16 and 12 year old son’s were instrumental in getting the pictures from the camera through the editing process!  A huge success with support from all four of my children!
