Pretty Princess Project -- Weigh In #3

I set my 2010 goals at the end of December. One of my goals for 2010 was to lose 10 lbs by the Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon on March 7! By the time I did my first weigh-in on January 1st and assessed the damage from the holidays, I was up about 5 lbs (despite my crazy a** mileage to reach my 1,200 miles by December 31?!). 158 lbs, ick. After one week of being "on program" at home (following Weight Watchers POINTS on my own, journaling food and exercise, increasing my running mileage), I already lost 5 lbs of holiday flubber.

So, my new, obtainable goal is to lose 15 lbs and be comfortable at 143 lbs by March 7.
I'm calling these Friday Weigh-Ins the ... Pretty Princess Project.

Today was weigh-in #3.

January 15: 151.0 lbs
January 8: 153.0 lbs
January 1: 158.0 lbs

Goal Weight: 143.0 lbs
Normal Weight: 148.0 lbs
Lowest WW Weight: 143.0 lbs (January 2005)

Proud accomplishments this week:

- Thursday night is my daughter's dance class and we typically eat frozen pizza, since we're in a hurry to get out the door. The rest of the family had the pizza and I made myself a Weight Watchers frozen pizza.

- Went to my favorite family style restaurant for a gathering with my extended family. I did not take seconds on anything and skipped the pumpkin pie.

- I work on the fourth floor of the office building and made an attempt to use the bathroom on the first floor twice a day and walk up and down the stairs, to get me out of my desk for a few minutes each day.

- Resisted snacking after dinner most nights this week or had sugar-free hot cocoa to satisfy my sweet tooth (only 25 calories!).


  1. OMG you're so good... I LOVE pizza and pie! It sounds like you're WELL on your way. Great job! I'm a little scared to do my own weigh in with my goal... I'll have to get around to it sometime soon.

    Oooh and the princess half??? I WOULD LOVE to do it! If my ankle is still in repair by that weekend I'm flying down to run it... my bff lives there and has been begging me to go!

    Happy Friday!!

  2. Awesome! I am working on the same thing, but not doing quite as well as you. :( It is so funny because I was just at the store and bought some 25 calorie hot cocoa. :)

  3. Hi Jamie
    Thanks for coming by my blog and joining in my journey! I am excited to catch up on all things Jamie over the weekend. I hope we can encourge and inspire each other towards whatever finish lines come next!

    I love your Pretty Princess Project! I'd like to drop 10 by marathon time. I may have to start a project of my own. Keep up the great work!

  4. Way to go!! You are CRUSHING the goals you set for yourself (2009 mileage goal and your 10 pound goal)!! Can't wait to hear about the next one...

    You have inspired me. No more eating a bowl of cereal while I cook dinner & then eat the dinner once it's cooked...did that last night...ooops...can't be good for the waist line.

    Keep up the awesome job!

  5. This is really inspiring. Keep it up!
