The Art of the Hustle (Day 42 of 83)

Sweeet! It's always good to connect with other writers - particularly screenwriters :)Congrats on your progress!


I was just thinking to myself that I need to put more effort into my weight loss. I've been cruising along with little bursts here and there, but overall it's been pretty weak for the past couple months. I've already lost more than the doctor recommended in order to help my fertility. I'm already at the higher end of my college weight. When I'm really being honest with myself I know that I have a feeling that this is good enough and I can be lazy about it. I'm only about midway between my starting weight and my goal weight. It's definitely NOT a point where I want to stop, so I need to get my butt in gear!
I'm Looking at the (Wo)Man in the Mirror (Day 38 of 83)

Ugh, hate the dressing room mirror! I totally think I look better than I actually do and I'm glad that I'm not the only one. I don't like being confronted by the truth in the mirror or in candid photos. Good job finding something to wear that'll be comfortable and stylish! And, I hope you get picked and that your presentation goes well!


We all know that particular form of torture, squinting at the mirror and avoiding those blubby thighs! Right? But you will kill it, you wear the clothes, they don't wear lipstick and big smile, that's whats needed here...good luck!

Oh you sciencey gal; still, I believe you can do this, and you are right, alcohol is fun but doesn't help your diet bet challenge, I am trying to limit it to tiny tastes once or twice a week, I am in the wine appreciation field, so to speak, so it is part of the 'job'. Keep at it!


Great work and great post! I also have to lose 4 lbs for a diet bet that weighs out the 27th or 28th. I know that it's possible, but I need to be super on it with my eating and work outs. Which, honestly, I have not been consistent about in the last two months. Alcohol is definitely a gateway to unhealthy foods for me, but at least it's fun eating, unlike stress eating. I have a friend visiting from out of town this weekend and I'm worried about how I can have a good time without totally blowing my weigh in. Let's encourage each other to buckle down!

I'm trying to figure out my plan...What is your plan as far as eating? Are you doing low carb/ sugar or ? Are you exercising daily?


I've had similar thoughts to those above. If you haven't read it yet, I highly recommend this long form Atlantic piece on age and fertility.

I'm excited for you, I am also losing weight, mainly for health and for fitness goals to be able to do more summer outings involving kayaks, and hiking. But also, a leaner grandma (in the future) will be able to chase toddlers and catch them, so I can smother them with kisses!


My husband and I have been trying for about a year and a half now. I went in to see a doctor after one year of trying. One of the first things they told me to do to help my issue (irregular periods/ovulation) is to lose 10% of my body weight. I already felt guilty that I was the reason we had waited to try for kids, so I did my best to lose the weight. It took a while, but when I got to the 10% mark, I started having more regular periods. It was just one of many reasons for me to start losing the weight for real. We're still trying and going through the process, but I'm determined that I be as healthy as possible for whenever a pregnancy happens.

You know I love my bread, and cheese. If I had to give up either, it would be a tough one, but just give me one more greasy grilled cheese sandwich on my death bed, and I'd be a fulfilled, happy woman!


Smart thinking. This past year I have concentrated on weight loss INCLUDING every habit I enjoy, and to me it is the only way to LIVE while I DIEt.

The desert is in bloom with our warm days. I think you've had an early spring there, too. :-)


OOoo, I just saw your Skull Rock video, it's like being there, thanks for sharing.Wish I WAS there. But I was hoping to see you running and cursing and see that rattlesnake.

Back on track! You can do it!

Those pounds WILL come off, you just have to be focused! Get extra water, watch your sodium, up your potassium a little (it can counteract some of the water retention from sodium) get PLENTY of sleep and be extra strict with your diet for the next few days. I had a similar issue last week where I went off the rails for a couple days and my weight jumped. Two days of extra water and intermittent fasting and 4 pounds came RIGHT off. Most of the time weight you gain quickly comes off almost as quickly.
