The sign of prosperity

  1. Here, a bulging tummy is still considered a sign of prosperity (not obesity).

    A loud burp, and thoughtful fondling of the tummy is a natural sequel to any sumptuous meal.

    I was mostly a lean fellow (weighing in at 55 Kg).

    Age & decreased activity, does take its toll.

    Now, I’m a hefty 76 Kg, but I think I can walk off at least 5 Kg.

    I guess 72kg would be about right (for a height of 5’ 11”).

    (Pardon the mix of SI & non-SI units)

    So, now I pop the question, do you consider yourself thin, just right, or fat ?

    I'm afraid to ask what passing gas is considered....

    The most pressing problems of the planet are two: How to save half the population from starvation and the other half from obesity.

    To continue the absurdity angle: I have just spent a lot of money on an expensive diet to be slim and trim. Worked, though.

    Though I don't really care for those types of diets, if it works for you, then great!

    I am approximately 5'10" and weigh 135.

    I'm fat, no question about it, induced by anti-depressants. The ironic part is that now being fat depresses me, even though I'm less obsessive-compulsive.
