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.

So. I gained one pound over Christmas.

But! My clothes are tight. Which I haven't experienced in quite some time.

I hate it.

I wore yoga pants and long underwear for the last two weeks - every now and then a pair of jeans or cords, but no dress pants.

I hate dress pants.


That ultrasound thing sounds scary. SCARY. Why does it WORK? Argh.


You say that like Facebook ISN'T cool. Dude. I LOVE FACEBOOK. Does that make me some kind of loser? I can't keep up. I thought (at 35) I was kind of old and embarassingly loserly mid thirties to be on Facebook. But now, you cool 20-something, are telling me that Facebook is NOT SO COOL. What am I to think?


LOL at Jennifer's comment. I haven't lost weight but I am working out. Whhhhhhiiiinnnnnnnnnnneeeeee.

Good work on the half pounder yo!


I... gained what seems to be five lbs over the holidays. I am sad but ultimately determined. Last night I walked in the rain and deserve lots of props for that, no?? I am eating nuts and berries today.

You're doing great! All these "down a half, down a pound..." titles! Slow and steady wins, yknow. :)

Yay, you're back on WLW! I've been there the entire year--joined a competition, even! New picture's up. Hope you'll be my "friend" :)
