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.

Dude that second paragraph is hilarious. This new 'do I have going on means my eyebrows are sort of half hidden or something and Oh Lord they are wild. Plus I lose my tweezers constantly. Anyway 154? Amzing. Can't wait for the before and after.


I am having the same haircut problem. I NEED a haircut and part of me really wants bangs but part of me remembers having them in high school and what a pain they were.


People SHOULD take pictures of the mom. She's IMPORTANT. And you are HOT.

Okay, "hair falling out by handfuls" makes me think you've got some sort of thyroid issue going on.

Sorry, I've been lurking around and reading your blog for a while now, but I've never taken the time to comment. I guess I get stage fright or something... but I couldn't ignore your comment about losing hair. This is not normal.

I do have a thyroid issue -- I am hypothyroid. When my meds haven't been right, I lose my hair. By handfuls. Seriously. It could also be some sort of hormonal imbalance or deficiency in your diet. Do you eat enough healthy fats? I'm talking wild caught salmon, olive oil, coconut oil, eggs, etc...

Okay, enough of my meddling. Congrats on your weight loss.

Mmm...postpartum hair loss. I was hoping that it would end soon (Teddy is almost 5 months old) but since Molly is approaching 10 months, I suspect that there's no end in sight. BOO!

You are doing a great job, inexplicable 2 lb gain notwithstanding. Go Maggie!

I am now down below my pre-pregnancy weight, but still 5-10 lbs from where I would like to be. I've hit a plateau, though, and I'm not sure I'll drop any more until I stop expressing milk. My oversupply got me down below my starting weight in just under 3 months, however, so I really cannot complain. I guess I'll have to get better at exercising (other than long walks with the baby in the Beco carrier).
