Men Don't Gain Weight

A handsome man tall, slim and about 225 pounds, Asked me out for a seafood dinner on our first date, Still eats everything fattening, I know how that sounds, Some twenty-eight years later, I still have a 225 pound mate, That sucks, I’m not fat ~ just really, really short for my weight. October 8, 2011 For Nancy Jone’s Contest “Things That Suck”

    This is awesome, Lee. What a great entry for the contest. But it's not true with MY hubbie. He put on 50 pounds thru our marriage but today he has lost half of that! and I put on 20 in just the past four years. DRATS.(I was doing so great before age 50!!)
