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 am so NOT a fan of the photographic evidence of being overweight. Unfortunately for me, I was a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding 19 days after my baby was born. So there are about a million pictures of me weighing probably 180 lbs (ish), otherwise known as 60 lbs over my goal weight. My only consolation is that it was SO soon after the birth (19 days!!) that there's no possible way I could have lost all the baby weight by then so I can't beat myself up about it (too much.) Instead I just look at the pictures and bless my sister for picking bridesmaid dresses that were flattering on all three of us instead of just her other two (teensy) bridesmaids.

Good luck with the weigh in this morning! I hope it doesn't involve too many Dramatic Sighs:)


I looked at a couple pics of me from September on the weekend and was like whoa. Very brave post Maggie. Good luck today.


Good job! You can do it!

I'm meeting up with the in-laws in Vegas too, but in July. I have to have hotness then too, since my mother-in-law is Judgemental and the brothers-in-law are bringing their cute young girlfriends.
