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.

Congratulations! I think it is totally ok to fixate on a number, as long as it is a reasonable and healthy number. If that's what works for you and keeps you motivated, then go for it!

I weigh 165 lbs. Sigh. But I'm working on it!! I'm fixating on 139. We'll see. :) I'm doing the 30 Day Shred as a supplemental workout too - not everyday. Level 2 has been kicking my butt for weeks now!

(I think Jillian felt GUILTY on this week's TBL...she saw just how emotionally wrapped up in it they all are and probably felt pretty darn crappy for last week's shenanigans.)


Maggie, I've been on a (back-pain induced) break for a few weeks, too. I am starting back Saturday. Even though I am going to vacay next week. Keep at it! ~Meghan


You can totally do it! Hooray!


This is an inspiring and hilarious little corner of the net if you ask me. Glad to see you are still/back at it.


Wwooo, Monday! You go! (I'm so impressed that Monday weigh-ins keep you in check. I am A Major Slacker on the weekends, health-wise.)

I agree about jillian being nicer this week. It was refreshing.


Good luck! Maybe numbers are unhealthy but attainable goals are good. So there you go.


Yeah, I tried the "eat healthier be more active" thing without setting any specific goals and I plateaued for like 4 months. So I finally gave in and joined weight watchers and set a goal weight. Just over 3 weeks in I'm down 10 lbs. Sometimes you need the numbers.
