How to lose 30 pounds in 3 months

posted in: Lifestyle 2

When Haddie was about one month old, I posted “How to lose 30 pounds in 120 days” – well, 7 months later and I didn’t lose 30 pounds.

Me and Haddie, pre Weight Watchers

In fact, while I’ve continued to work out, I’ve fully developed my “dad bod” and put on some extra weight.







The rounding of a male body, often occurring after a child is born due to excessive eating, lack of sleep, lack of physical exercise, and poor eating habits.


“Oh man, look at Matt – he’s gotten a real dad bod after Haddie was born. He looks like a sloth.”


antonyms: fleek, in shape, The Rock, damn Daniel,

For the past 3 years, every Sunday I look Carlie in the eye, and tell her that Fat Matt is outta-here, and Skinny Matt is coming back. For the past 3 years, I’ve failed my diet by Tuesday – or, Monday morning. But, three weeks ago I followed through, and joined Weight Watchers.

At first I was really embarrassed – Weight Watchers! Really!!! What am I, a 70 year old bubby?? Their brand doesn’t exude youth and a healthy lifestyle – but it should, and I am sure it is changing. Their program is awesome. It is not a “diet”, and doesn’t promote quick weight loss. It is a healthy lifestyle, helping you make better decisions.

I embraced the program and go to their group weigh-ins and class once a week. I’ve become friends with the bubbies, and they are super helpful. Three weeks in, and I’ve already lost 12 pounds. Boom!

Whats really awesome is that it is a lifestyle. I can eat whatever I want, when ever I want – as long as I eat all my given points every day. Losing weight so far has been a breeze. Just commit.

But, why do I really love Weight Watchers? Because of their app.

The Weight Watchers App – I grabbed this photo from somewhere; those are not my slender fingers

The Weight Watchers app makes healthy decision making so easy. I can scan bar codes of packaged food to find nutritional points, or I can just type in “Swiss Chalet Half Chicken (skinless)” to see what the points are (6 points, 11 if you eat the delicious skin)*. They app is community focused, meaning that anyone in the community can add the nutritional points to food, making their list of foods very thorough. Additionally, there is 24/7 live support – which I seem to use daily.

So, get over your excuses of having a dad bod. Get going on changing your lifestyle.

* you know that delicious Swiss Chalet sauce??? One serving is only 1 point. Yay.

I am not endorsed, and I do not receive any financial incentives from Weight Watchers or Swiss Chalet – this post is from my three week experience to date.

    I just joined actually. First day I guessed at my weight (I signed up while at work so couldn’t weigh myself) and then after a week I finally weighted myself and was like WOah.. way heavier than I thought I was. So my first goal is to hit the weight I thought I was then work from there..

      Good luck! I am really loving Weight Watchers – I’m find it to be a really good lifestyle, and finding that I am making much healthier decisions throughout the day. Good for you for not looking! Personally, I like to weigh myself every morning.
