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.

But valid, good, reasonable excuses! Plus, wasn't there just some kind of scale mix-up? Perhaps that is part of the reason?

Besides, one pound sounds really good to me! If you do that every week, you get to lose 52 pounds each year! Soon, you will shrink to nothingness and disappear.


The first three weeks I was on Weight Watchers, I lost 3.5 pounds per week. The fourth week I changed nothing and hopped on the scale for my weekly weigh-in, fully expecting to have lost another 3.5 pounds... only to discover that I had GAINED half a pound. Which felt like I had really gained four pounds. I was pissed, but it turned out to be hormonal/water weight, and it went right away again. Still, I clearly remember that feeling of fury and inadequacy when I saw that number on the scale.
