- Is It Fair -



           I have heard: Women burn fat almost 10% slower than men
           It's does not feel justified
           I have heard: Women live on average 3 years longer than men
           Women have a better durability date (used before: .. - ... - .....)
           Men: (must be used within: .. - .. - ....)
           Why is it only women who are thinking about calories and diets
           I bake delicious cakes .... that can only be eaten by my husband
           ..... I think I'll try one more piece :)

    Hi Anne-Lise, I've just read your piece here and I'm in deep stook, trouble i mean. For a moment, while reading i actually thought, Hell, I was meant to be a woman. Seriously though, don't feel too bad, I burn off fat slower than any lady. I'm a beach ball and no matter what I try, I'm still a beach ball. Imagine writing about cakes in front of someone like me, that is commonly known as torture. As far as a sell by date goes, I see it to sixty and I'll be happy. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    True... True... But why listen to all that diet stuff... Just put artificial sweeteners in every thing. My hubby is diabetic. But cooking for him allow me to eat more for less calories... Good write.

    Ahhh. So that's why women bake cakes for their husbands. You've spilled the beans, Anne Lise. But nicely. - Red

    My husband loses weight fast. Years ago we went on a diet together. I walked and he did no exercise. In two months I lost 2 pounds and he lost 20 and in 4 months I lost 4 pounds and he lost 40. Talk about giving up on diets. This poem brought back that time. love phyl

    I've also noticed that this absolutely true my very dear friend Anne Lise! In our family, my dad, uncle and grandpa were the first ones to go to another life ;)). This is another poem of yours that is so delightful again to read. I've enjoyed it my dear friend. But I love cakes. How I wish I can ask you a slice of what you've baked ;)). Again thank you so much especially for your precious time stopping by. Have a lovely day as well my dearest friend! Biggest sweetest hugs! love much, Leonora

    This is so true. My husband skips a meal and loses 5 lbs. I fasted for 8 days one time and lost nothing. It is just so unfair. I used to bake, but it is too hard to resist something yummy, so I quit baking. Baby loves my softness, so that is a plus. Enjoyed this.

    Women are meant to be rounder, and it's not always about the outside, the inside is more important, you enjoy yourself Anne Lise. Take care, Richard

    Go for it Anne Lise. enjoy the sweet taste of life. why should men have all the fun. As for me -I hate diets. Right now I am having a cup of coffee and a piece of peach pie. I try not to eat too much, but I will never go on a diet. God bless you......Lucilla

    Tis not fair at all! Plus men are warmer as they have more blood volume than us women folk, at least we live longer?

    YOu have such exception ability to take any subject and craft it into a fine poem. This is exceptional. I love the last line. I always lok for a poerful last line at the end of each poem that will also add a twist to the poetry. I am a pleased reader !

    Women were designed to put on fat and carry some fat so that they could be pregnant then breast feed those babies..It seems unfair that our men die out before their women leaving the women to fend for themselves for a period of time..We need to take better care of our man even if we have to slip the better foods for them in there some way..Thanks for stopping by..This one is a great reminder that life is short and that we should make each second count..Sara
