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.

Apparently your not called Mighty for nothing. Yay you and your Christmas miracle. If any of my clothes fit when I get home THAT will be a Christmas miracle. JK. Though I must, and will get back on the wagon.


I try not to beat myself up too much over things like Christmas cookies. I mean, everyone eats them. A whole nation, really a whole planet, full of people beating themselves up over eating too many cookies. It just seems silly, doesn't it? Maybe the loss was your body's way of telling you that.


Maggie? You are just amazing, and that's all there is to it. I can't believe you're well under 10 lbs to go. I have well OVER 10 lbs to go. And I really just let go of the whole thing after Thanksgiving. I have to get back on track!!

I'm going to try to fit into one of my skirts by Lucy's baptism on the 17th. That's about 8 lbs. Think I can do that? I'm going to try. Ready go.


Lucy will be two weeks old on Tuesday. I've already signed up for Weight Watchers, and I've got about 25 pounds to go. (20 would get me into my old jeans, I think, but 25 would be ideal.) I even bought a SCALE at TARGET yesterday. I have never, ever in my LIFE owned a scale. So. I'll be checking in here rather often.


bleh... you are awesome.

ugh. I don't even want to think about mine.

All right, Maggie! Maybe you should write a book about the Christmas Cookie Diet and make a bunch of money.


2 lbs? Excellent work. I too, stepped on the scale and it turns out my loss of progress isn't as bad as I thought; I am still 3lbs lighter than when this hot by thirty business started. I'll take it!

Are you still treadmilling it? Or is this all from healthy eating or some other variable?
