Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who wrote about his 100-pound weight loss in 2005, is back in his fat suits, thanks to 25 pounds gained because of a painful foot ailment. "I still run, but not more than 3 miles at a time, not the 10-to-12—and more—milers before," he tells Whispers. But he's fighting back with protein shakes. "I'll be back to full speed in a few months," adds the likely 2012 GOP presidential candidate.
