Coming soon.  For those of you who didn’t see this train wreck go on Youtube or flip to VH1 and check out the last season of Celebrity Fit Club.

Long before there was the Total Transformation Test blog there was “Musing, Rants, and Monologues.” It was my first blog and it ran from June 2005 through August of 2006. M.R.M. represents a different phase in my life, and a very different writing style. My writing was a bit less polished, my humor and criticism much more caustic, and my topics much more political.

On this blog I try my best (often without success) to avoid political topics- as this is primarily a weight loss blog. I don’t want my radical right wing libertarian politics to drive away those interested in losing weight and beginning a healthy lifestyle.

However, after going over some blog posts from the old blog (for some unknown reason) I can’t resist introducing a new kind of blog post entitled “Classic Posts.” These Classic Posts will highlight posts from the old blog that I consider hidden gems- in an otherwise poorly maintained and inconsistent (not to mention poorly read) blog.


I never fails to amaze me how rude and hateful folks can be when they are interacting via the Internet.

When I posted on the topic of adoption a few days ago an anonymous commenter left a brief and rude replay to my post. I figured it was a drive by comment, from someone I would never hear from again. Yet today, when checking my “Blog Stats” page, I came across a new link back from another blog. So I wandered over only to find that the blog belonged to someone who decided to take that boorish comment and run with it. It appears the anonymous commenter and the blog’s author are not the same person. Whatever the case, apparently he/she thought I deserved a whole post on his/her blog.
