What I Wore on this Weight Watchers Wednesday

ok, so I am back with WW Wednesdays and have decided to pair it with What I Wore Wednesday hosted by Lindsey over at the Pleated Poppy.  She decided to put a little effort into what she wore each day and created a linky party so other women could do the same and share what they wear each day.  I have to say some of those women are super cute and have some wonderful fashion sense (I on the other hand...don't).

A few weeks ago I blogged about how I have been stalking this series each Wednesday and really wanted to join but viewing the pics of me just wasn't something that I could endure.

Well,  I am still not too sure I can endure the pics, but hey, my Wednesday posts are supposed to be about my weight loss struggle journey and I guess there is no better way to document it than in pictures.

So, this week, I only have 2 pics to share, but promise to do better next week.  I must apologize for the pics themselves and the sheer ugliness of the bathroom that they were taken in.   I realized that I only have 3 mirrors that i can take pictures in front of in my home and no full length mirrors...guess I should get on that one.  This mirror has the best lighting.   So ugly wall paper in the bathroom that is patiently waiting for a full gutting and remodel aside, it is where I will be taking the pics (unless I can figure out the tripod thingy).

Tuesday - home & football practice at night
shirt & sweater - Kohl's (last year)
jeans - nine & co
muffin top - courtesy of 2 kids...but will be gone soon (I hope)

Wednesday - home & football practice at night
Argyle top - dress barn
Black layering tee - Kohl's
Jeans - Ruff hewn

On the WW end of things, I am happy to say that finally, after months of going up .2, .4, etc. etc. I have lost weight.  I lost 1.8lbs and have vowed to make that just the beginning.  I came home from my meeting on Saturday and packed a picnic lunch for the whole family to eat after JT's football game...instead of stopping on the way home at a resturaunt.  I have also had dinner on the table each night, tracked all my points, not eaten everyone else's leftovers, and made the yummiest White Bean & Sausage Soup with escarole yesterday for lunch (and about to heat up leftovers soon).  The running hasn't been as dedicated.  I told myself that I would wake up at 5am M,W,F and run...well, so far it has been raining, and I refuse to run in the rain. So, maybe Friday...we will see.

Whatever the scale shows Saturday, all I can say is I had a good week and I feel great.

Congrats on your weight loss Tracy!
I have been trying hard too...With the meds I am on right now for the next couple years, it is not easy and it doesnt budge no matter what I seem to get anywhere!!!
Don't get frustrated, it will kick in and you will be happy you stuck with it:)

I don't believe that there is ANY woman out there who doesn't struggle with her weight. If those size 0's out know they avoid certain foods or run their bootys off at the gym. I applaud you for making your weight loss journey public! And you don't need fashion sense when you have confidence. :)

I especially like the second outfit! My mom did WW several years ago and has kept the weight off ever since with what she learned from it and she taught me the basics so that I could lose weight after my 3rd baby and keep it off, it's an awesome program! Keep up the good work!

I'm a WIWW lurker too! I took a photo two months ago to join in and took one look at the photo and said no way, I hated the way I looked. Your courage in posting your journey is awesome, best of luck in all you do! Oh, and running in the rain is the BEST, you might change your mind after you give it a try!

I may just have to join in for Weight Loss Wednesdays. I have about 50 lbs (yikes) to lose. Thank you to Milady and Jake. For some reason, I didn't have 50-60 lbs babies.

Congrats on the weight loss! See you next Wednesday!

Good for you with the weight loss! I, too, am having a hard time finding a picture spot in my house...I think I need to buy a cheap full length mirror that I can move around the house to catch the light ;)

Oh I love your blog! Thanks for finding me and commenting. Glad I am not alone in my efforts to lose the muffin top. I feel so dishonest sucking it in for most of my WIWW pics. ;) Keep up the cute outfits!
