Have you heard of this show?

There's a reality tv show on Oxygen that's like the illegitimate love child of The Biggest Loser and Dancing With The Stars. Its called...get this...Dance Your A$$ Off. Overweight contestants are paired with a professional dancer and must do a dance routine every week. They also workout with a trainer and are changing their diets. They perform and are judged by 3 judges. Their average score is added to their percentage of weight loss and the lowest person is kicked off each week.

I don't know what I really think about it. On hand I think its great that they are showing that fat people can shake their thang and be just as sexy as anyone else, and they are losing fairly normal amounts of weight each week. But I dunno...I mean, they had a pole dancing week. I'm no prude, but I'm not sure I really want to see that regardless if you're a size 2 or 32.

I have to hand it to those contestants though, it looks like a really fun way to lose weight, but I don't think I'd have the guts to do it...not in front of other people anyway, LOL!

One of the top three things I Don't Do Because I'm Fat..... dance in front of people. Or alone. I love the bit about it being an illegitimate love child, lol.

You just might be able to shake your thang and not even know it Tina!! Hey I took belly dancing classes thinking it would be the utmost form of humiliation...and it turned out I was good at it! Sure didn't look as good on me as my twig of a teacher though, LOL!
