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.

I was down two pounds at this morning's weigh in, which puts me at 4 lbs total loss. If I can lose 1 more pound the tens digit of my weight will be in the middle category of my weight scenarios, which is 'I don't yet feel like a hottie but my weight is very tolerable and most my clothes fit.' So, long term I would like to lose 11 lbs, but my short term goal is to change the tens digit of my weight (lose 1 lb) and go to the gym three times this week.

Hope your weigh in goes well!


I think that sounds like a perfect goal! Plus, you can totally achieve that goal.

I'd like to lose at least seven pounds by December 5th, which is the day I shall be induced if I haven't lost that particular seven or so pounds at that point. Not quite the same though.


I was down 1 lb this week, for a total of 15 since 10/1. I had a whole "20 by 12/20" challenge going for myself and I'm 5 pounds away. I need to think of my next goal since I've got quite a bit to go....My prize is going to be to buy 1 pair of matching "under" clothes. I know that's very pathetic but I'm tired of buying all my undies in a pack of 8. :o(

I think your goal for the skirt is perfect. I keep trying this one pair of pants on over and over and now I can BUTTON them, now I just need to work on not looking like I'm about to BURST out of them (like the HULK).


Girl, you are AMAZING. 3 lbs? I'm a slacker - and only lost .5 lbs. You are my hero.


I don't actually weigh myself. I find it too depressing. But I do continually try on a pair of pants that is a little too small, and I judge how I'm doing by that.
I could wear a pair of pants yesterday that I wasn't able to since I was about 2.5 months pregnant (that second kid pops way too fast).
And I had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and I'm down almost 30 pounds since the birth (6 weeks ago), and I'd like to drop another 15-20. 15 is about pre-baby weight, 20 just for hotness's sake.


I am back to say 3 LBS??? You are good at this game. Way to go.


OK so I went to my midwife appt today and found out that I have about 12 lbs to pre-preg weight, though I'd be happy to lose just a few if that means that I could fit into my pants.

That's awesome about the 3 lbs! There's a scale on sale at Target for $7.50 and I'm debating if it's worth buying in order to track my progress. I should say, "progress." (Is it worth it?)


Any goal that gets the job done is great. Having both short and long term goals can really help keep the motivation going. My short term goal is running a 5K on Thanksgiving (and trying not to eat like a horse at the actual event). We'll see how it goes.
