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.

Awesome, Maggie. I know what you mean. I felt totally different after my secong pregnancy too - I didn't fit into anything right away, but I felt more in control over the whole thing. I think after my first was born, I was just waiting. Waiting for the weight to come off. Weighting for the breastfeeding magic to take effect. And agonizing over my life every Sunday when I had to find something in my closet to wear to Church....sweats fit no matter what size you are, but you can't wear those to Mass.

Then, when I finally figured it out, I got pregnant again. So I feel like, now that Jacob has been born, I just slipped right back into my routine. When I look at it from an "ultimate goal" standpoint, it's still a challenge. But when I look at the scale each week and it's a little bit lower than the week before, it feels manageable. It feels like I've accomplished something. Like I'm in control this time. And those are good feelings.

Tired does add up. Sometimes I find myself really tired when I haven't even done anything to speak of all day, just little chores.
