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.

Oh crap Maggie. I just finished shutting down my husband on his invite to go to the gym. Now you've gone and motivated me to take back my decline and go. Gahhh. LOL. You are so right about feeling good after working out. Working out is just something people don't regret doing...sooooo off I go. Enjoy your wine!!! And hells ya girl on your first ever nonstoppable two miles. You ARE a fitness person.


This is awesome. I mean, I can totally relate. It doesn't matter that the weight you're at is awesome, it's not New and Exciting because you've been there before and we always tell ourselves that the lowest weight we've ever been it is our only weight, our real weight, and so then nothing else is exciting. Very frustrating. But you have accomplished so much and I am way jealous.


Yay! Now I know that I need a non-food reader or feeder or whatever because I only came over on a whim. I could have gone a full week sans semi-triumphant update.

I always find it funny that when I'm within arm's reach of my goal it almost never manages to seem worth it. I'm either already thinking of the next step or overanalyzing my every motivation.
