I finally made it back to Brooklyn and back to the blogging world. It’s been awhile, right?

The good news is, I have been wearing and buying size 22 skirts! The so-so news is that my first weigh in about a month shows that I’m at 276. I’ve been going back in forth between the high 260’s and low 270’s.

I’ve been eating a lot especially when I was at home, I am surprised and grateful that the scale is not higher. I give thanks to exercise for that. Before I left I was eating a lot, but still moving and whatever muscle I’ve gained seems to have helped in the excessive food consumption.

So, I’m ready to get back on track with weight loss and with regular blogging. I plan on catching up with my blog reading/commenting and doing some cleaning up around here.

I’ve got a new forum up (upper right hand column) that has had some recent activity and I’d like to find new inspiring blogs to add to my list.

Anyhow, I’m going to go back to counting weight watch points tomorrow (I need a refresher course!) and starting some new gym classes as well.

As a little welcome back to weight loss and blogging I thought it would be nice to have a comment contest! I have three brand new DVD’s up for grabs from Amazon for the lucky winner:

The Biggest Loser Vol. 1 and 2
Belly Dance Fitness-Cardio Slimming

All you have to do is leave a comment between now and Saturday until midnight and I will draw a name randomly.

Good luck!

Great to have you back Lorrie, I've missed you :-)

Those DVDs are fantastic - I have The Biggest Loser Vol 1 and the Cardio Shimmy one and both of them are a great workout; I hope that they release Vol 2 in New Zealand since I'd love to give that a try also :-)

Looking forward to more posts from you! :-D

Good job! By the way, I recommend going to the gym instead of workouts at home, its hard to force yourself to go, but its much easier to give up at home!
