    I have to agree with this. The typical American is so overweight now that people think that fat/over weight is the new normal and that people who are at a healthy weight are under weight. My wife is 5' 5" and about 118lbs., she works out regularly and her arms and abs are actually getting fairly muscular/well defined. The average American women her height weighs a hog fat 160-165lbs. Subsequently everyone at her office is always telling her about how "skinny" and "underweight" she is and how she needs to eat more etc. presumably so that she can be soft, sloppy, jiggly etc. like just about everybody else where she works. She says that she can literally count on one hand the number of people who look as if they do any kind of physical activity at all.

    Here's why men should lift weights: I've been quasi-seeing this girl, sort of, and she's been getting a lot more into thinking about nutrition and lifting. She's not in bad shape or anything, but just hasn't really put all this stuff together in her head as comprehensively as I have yet.

    Anyway, we were out and about recently, and she said "Wow, I never really noticed this stuff before, but it's STRIKING how much better you look than the average dude who you can tell doesn't lift weights and is all skinny body with a soft or fat middle."

    Girls thinking you're way above average-looking is badass.

    I mean, health, too, but...

    Yeah, but if you were born stupid PLUS ate 100% carbs you could become doubly stupid!

    Could be. Could be. I'm with bloodorchid - too many stupid people having kids while the smart ones wait or don't have them at all. I'm reading a journal of a member here who is adopting kids - physicals, parenting classes, hoops to jump through meanwhile any moron with a room temperature IQ and a 6 pack of Bud Light can knock up his high school drop out girl friend because they haven't figured out how condoms work.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    Not to mention their amazing penchant for scat.
    Woo... yeah.
    I'm looking to that for leadership!

    Although his GF did graduate.
    Yay. Congratulations me.
    No.

    Thanks, love being compared to a hog. XO. Classy, and I know you wouldn't call me hog fat to my face, but you are in a conversation with people that actually weigh more than that. Sorry that your wife has to put up with some jealous bitches... but really? Hog fat?

    Anyway, we were out and about recently, and she said "Wow, I never really noticed this stuff before, but it's STRIKING how much better you look than the average dude who you can tell doesn't lift weights and is all skinny body with a soft or fat middle."

    Trust me, she noticed your fit body and assessed it as hot long before she mentioned it.

    Right! Hell, every time I go to visit my sisters in the US I can see how FAT Americans have become. Too much reality TV and not enough exercise, perhaps?
