About Hot by Thirty

  • Desperate not to spend another summer hiding out in fat and/or maternity clothes, I'm determined to drop thirty pounds of baby weight by my thirtieth birthday- July 18, 2009. How unfortunate, then, that I prefer to spend nap time in front of my television with a vat of ice cream. But I've lost these same thirty pounds twice before and I can do it again. I shall do this by steering clear of white flour and sugar and moving my stumpy legs as fast as they will go on our new treadmill. In front of the television, of course. You can also find me at mightymaggie.com.

I love squash.


I made that butternut squash lasagna you linked too last year. (Not low carb. But delicious, no?)

Mike, the hubs, made acorn squash baked with apples in the middle. Oh my yum.

I love fall. Very much. :)


Low carb eating is SO expensive. It's horrible.


I do not understand you low-carb people. I plan my entire DAY around when I can have bread and pasta. I do eat whole grains 90% of the time, so I guess that's okay. I am also breastfeeding (he's almost six months) but I plan on weaning him at a year so summertime is a safe goal. The good side of weaning is dropping those last 5-10 pounds. The bad side is watching my chest deflate like sad day-old balloons. Oh well. Sorry to leave such a long comment-off to watch Mad Men and fantasize about shoving Milanos down my throat!


Hello~ I read your other blog too but never comment...sorry. I am with you on the weight loss so know there is someone out there who is doing it too. I have 10 to lose by January when I am 30. My youngest is 7 months so good luck to us.

By the way you are very funny and I enjoy your writing.


I am making my own low carby thing right now and then I am sitting down to see what this Mad Men business is all about now that I have rented the first season. I am doing hot by Christmas(ahhhhh) because whenever I see my SIL's they have always literally just had babies and are still smaller than me, babyless gal. :( SO hard on the ego. Good luck to all of us.


Oooh, good, soup recipes. I have a pumpkin-corn-chowder one but it *might* not fall into diet-friendly territory, what with its HEAVY CREAM ingredient. Bummer.

My goal is similar to yours - hot by thirty-five (I want to lose 15, and yes I just might need that long!). Our beach vaca is always in June, and also the month of my birth, so that's when I want to look good. :) Wait, I mean FEEL GOOD. It's all for the HEALTH benefits, natch. Ahem.


I keep hearing about how butternut squash is a great thing to cook with. I swear, someday soon i'll try it.
