Pretty Princess Project -- Weigh-In #9

I'm still in reach of my goal of reaching 143 lbs by the Walt Disney World Princess Half Marathon on March 7. We leave for WDW in six short days. If I behave this week, I may still get close to my goal and lose some of this bloating (that's what I get for eating so much dietary fiber!!). Today was weigh in #9 of my Pretty Princess Project. I gained 1 lb again this week. I'm doing well at maintaining under 150 lbs at least, which is where I've been for the past two years, approximately.
I feel good and I feel a bit lighter on the treadmill. Clothes are fitting so much better. I went to JC Penney last week with Little Dude (had a $10 coupon!) and purchased a pair of capris and trendy blue jeans from the juniors department (I refuse to shop in the frumpy clothing section, even though I'm approaching 30 this summer!!). I tried on a size 8 in five different styles and had to go get a size 6 in everything!!! I was ecstatic. I haven't felt comfortable in a size 6 since I lost close to 50 lbs after Little Diva was born 6 years ago (when I was 143 lbs). I felt great walking out of that dressing room! And, Little Dude fell asleep in the car and I was able to transport him to the stroller ... asleep ... and I was able to try clothes on while he napped for an hour. That NEVER happens and was pure bliss.
We're cleaning out the pantry and refrigerator this week, in anticipation for our WDW vacation. This leaves us with crap essentially. I'm running to the store today to get some fruits and veggies so that we can at least have some well-rounded meals for the next six days. I'm thinking BIG SALADS for tonight.
Here are the stats ...

January 1: 158.0 lbs
January 8: 153.0 lbs
January 15: 151.0 lbs
January 22: 150.5 lbs
January 29: 148.0 lbs
February 5: 147.5 lbs
February 12: 148.5 lbs
February 19: 147.0 lbs
February 26: 148.0 lbs

Total Lost: 10.0 lbs
Goal Weight on March 7: 143 lbs
Normal Weight: 148 lbs
Lowest WW Weight: 143 lbs (January 2005)

  1. hooray for smaller pant sizes! I'm about ready to throw out my scale, I like to gauge my weight now by how my clothes feel. congrats on the weight loss!

  2. You are doing awesome! Cookie dough is one of my weaknesses, I always eat so much of it before we bake anything!

    Can't wait to finally meet next week!

  3. YAY!!! You are an inspiration!
    Good luck with the Princess Half!

  4. I am having issues with my weight the past 2 weeks. Ugh. No solid idea why. Maybe not enough water and a bit of extra eating from all the training. After my race I will work on it. BUT I don't like the thought of racing with 5 extra pounds when I wanted to be down 5 to be faster for the race. ...I think my scale is broken! ;-)

  5. Have a blast at the Princess half and on your vacation! Congrats on the smaller size. That always feels good!

  6. Way to go for getting into a 6! Yay!

  7. Congrats on the smaller pants! I'm headed down to run Disney's Princess 1/2, too! That's how I found your blog. Looking forward to reading more.

    Winks & Smiles,

  8. Way to go with the pant size - that's a huge accomplishment! You shouldn't worry too much about the weight when you know you're body shape is changing for the better!
