As the Fat Turns…

That’s a random title if I ever saw one! I just liked the way it sounded and wanted to post something real quick since it’s been a while. Things have been extremely busy, so I have neglected blogging for a while. I finally have things under control, I think, and will be able to blog again. I have a back log of posts I want to put up in the mean time, to fill the void I’ve left. I’ll be posting a few recaps of the Biggest Loser to keep things plugging along, I’m so seriously behind on things it’s not even funny…


So yes, as the fat turns, I am plugging along. I was out in Cali and almost met up with Mr. Low Body Fat, but just missed him! That would have been really cool. Maybe next time…

Oh, and I gained 5 lbs back in the last 3 weeks, so my theory of I need to blog and weigh-in weekly is proven. 5 Lbs ain’t nothing though, I’ll knock that rust off and be back on track by next week.


P.S. Those of you who shot me emails asking for me to return…thanks for the well wishes! You continue to help me along my journey!

    Sad to hear you’d gained 5 lbs back. I know u r too busy to exercise. In your situation you might want to keep an eye on your diet. It’s time saving way.

    I love the title too! It caught my attention. I’m new to your site but I look forward to reading your up comings posts. I’m sorry to hear about your set back. I’ve had so many myself that i hope blogging will help for me as well. I guess it kind of keeps us responsible to our readers. We’ll be praying for you.

    I just came across your blog. Congrats on your weight loss. It is a bummer that you gained 5 lbs but at least it was over a 3 week period. I took a break from my fitness program and gained 5 lbs in 1 week. Lucky for me I had stalled on my weight loss and that 1 week was what I needed to get unstuck. I lost those 5 lbs in one week and then another the next week. Keep up the good work.
