Fat bellied gentlemen - Suck it up or..

The fat lady thread got me thinking..
My love of prosecco and beer seems to have increased the size of my belly to the point where i notice it now and it's annoying me a little.. Not a lot, it's a status symbol after all, like a rolex My trousers have a 34in waste so I'm too huge.. and will try lose it..

But mean time, are there some styles of clothing that make it look a little less obvious? Vertical stripes maybe? A shirt vs a t-shirt? Or should I just embrace it and show it off? It's still small enough that I can hold it when a lovely lady walks past!

Not sure i'm expecting a sensible answer but hey...

It's not if you can still hold it.


It's when you can't see it anymore that you need to worry.

Re: Fat bellied gentlemen - Suck it up or..

How much do you weight? how tall?

Try reducing the unhealthy stuff, learn to cook and start walking an hour every day to speed up the metabolism.

But the first and the most important advice that I can give you is, to accept yourself as you are. And show the belly!

But what if it's an emotional problem and the OP's comfort eating (and drinking) to get through it?
Or it may be his genetics at last catching up on him?
Or his hormones?
Or other random stuff like that? (especially stuff gleaned from random U.S. internet sites).

It's most likely not his fault - it's his circumstances and we shouldn't
say anything rash that may send him into a vicious cycle of despair and over-indulgent eating.

Who ate all the pies anyway?

Say what!?

Hold what?! See what!?

Suggest the worrying starts long before it gets to that stage!

It's none of that stuff.. It's too much drink and too much food and not enough exersize. Oh and getting old too! Maybe stopping smoking? (good excuse)

The answer to looking better naked is simply to take your glasses off.

I was being sarcastic. Judging by all the other threads on here - your belly couldn't possibly be explained by eating and/or drinking too much. That would be far too simplistic.
It would have to be something vague, immeasurable and totally unfixable.

My husband's belly grew when mine did. However, I lost 8 lb 4 oz of mine in just 18 hours. On the other hand, his doesn't need a college education.

That's precisely why...single women want some meat on the bone, it makes em feel safe and cuddly. It's about the whole survival instinct, skeletor can't protect you...but some nice 5-11, 94kg hunk has definitely some stature.
Married women are just bitter, the keep reading their fictional romance novels and dream about long haired, six-packed Raoul scooping them up from Coop on a tall Arabian thoroughbred.
