Marissa Jaret WinokurMarissa Jaret Winokur is giving a Beyoncé hit a try on her weight-loss journey.The Dance Your Ass Off host, whose Oxygen show premieres Monday, is continuing her quest to get in shape with some boogying of her own: joining the legions of people (including Joe Jonas and Justin Timberlake) attempting the R&B star's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)" dance, much to the amusement of her 11-month-old son Zev and husband Judah Miller.

Here, in her weekly weight-loss blog, she shares her Beyoncé moment â€" and her quest to get back in a bikini:OMG, OMG !!! Okay, so here's the deal.

I am so excited to blog my weight-loss journey with and was so happy when it posted last Monday! I got my little Google alert notice (yes, I have myself on Google alert, so think twice before you blog something mean about me...) and I sat down to read my blog when I saw these words in WRITING: "Now on a mission to get back in the shape she was in while appearing on Dancing with the Stars, Winokur (whose Oxygen show premieres June 29) has returned to exercising and has a goal: to appear in a bikini in the pages of PEOPLE." A bikini in PEOPLE ...


Reading those words made me get a little dizzy.

It made it REAL! HELP!!!! My favorite articles in PEOPLE are the weight-loss bikini ones.

I remember just reading about Melissa Joan Hart and she was on the cover weighing 113!!! OKAY, EVERYONE, I AM NOT GOING TO EVER BE 113! I started to freak out and I may or may not having eaten a handful of cereal.

Then I re-read the "get back in the shape she was in while appearing on Dancing with the Stars" part.

Oh, yeah â€" I can do that! I calmed down and stepped away from the cereal box.

My goal isn't to be in a bikini at 113 lbs.

My goal is to be in a bikini at MY happiest feel-good weight.

I know I looked sexy on DWTS and I was considered a "plus-size dancer." My mission is to look and feel MY best and that was when I was 25 lbs.

lighter! Doing the "Single Ladies" DanceMarissa Jaret Winokur That all being said, reading the word "bikini" did kick my butt into gear!!!! No pun intended, I danced my ass off and went to the "Dance Your Ass Off" class at Crunch gym! I worked out so hard that I was sore the next day.

I felt the dance in every muscle of my body and cursed the teacher's name.

But I can't wait to go back next week!! Because dancing is way more fun then the treadmill, I downloaded the video of Beyoncé's "Single Ladies" and started to learn her dance.

Let me tell you, if I ever did that dance in a club I would still be a single lady!!! But what a workout! It was free and fun and it kept my son very entertained â€" it was like a real-life Muppet danced out of his TV and into the living room.

It kept him and, sadly, my husband very amused for almost an hour.

Okay, everyone, I started to dust off my bikinis to take the curse off of them and beg for mercy!!! OMG â€" even just typing the word "bikini" just made my heart race.

This may be proof you should think before you speak!!! My biggest challenge this week: Not sneaking spoonfuls of Spaghetti O's while I feed them to my Zev.

I am most proud of: exercising almost every day (most of the time with a smile)!!!
