    He should tell her that the male secret to weight loss is to skip the second dessert at breakfast.

    Oh, and death to spammers btw. As if I’d ‘trust’ that creep with any of my unemployment check.

    Some guys actually have a harder time losing weight than women. But if you are really overweight the first 10 or so pounds comes off quickly, its the rest that are harder; and if you don’t need to lose much of anything (or only about 5 lbs) then it takes forever as your body is trying to tell you you are fine right where you are. Too much emphasis on weight loss now, not enough on actual fitness and I’ve seen some very fit “obese” people, one a world class aerobics instructor!

    According to the “Body Mass Index” definition that the medical/pharmaceutical/government complex has been trying to force upon us, such great athletes as Walter Payton and Michael Jordan were obese. And, oddly enough, people who are in the low end of “overweight” by the official definition tend to be healthier and longer-lived than people who are at the “ideal” weight. Go figure.

    ^Baloney, Victoria is good for him in a lot of ways. And she deals remarkably well with both girls - who seem to like her. I’ve never met anyone without baggage, but most of the time, she seems pretty good for him and he for her.

    I have had a hell of a time getting rid of my stomach fat, Just a few inches or pounds. I run 11 miles per week and do push-ups and sit ups!@ No eating out and not eating much fat at home or at work. I think my BF is around 19%. So, no other ideas on what to do? Pills?

    Joe just broke the Cardinal rule of discussing weight loss with a woman: Never talk about how much weight you lost or answer a question about her own (or lack thereof).

    According to the BMI I’m actually underweight, which according to my doctor I’m not at all. I just need to build up some muscle!

    I’m with Bill Engvall on this one. It is the same question as “Does this pair of jeans make my butt look fat?”. There is NO GOOD ANSWER!!!!!!!!! Men, you are doomed, you cannot answer these questions right. I have learned that the best way to answer is to tell them the truth, “Honey, you are the loveliest woman I know. Please, never change a thing for me.” Yes, it’s a non-answer, but, if you really mean it, it goes a long way. If you don’t mean it, seek counsel.

    I don’t know why folks obsess with these flimsy devices. My Treo gets scratches if I as much breathe on it. How I miss my Radio Shack brick phone from the late 1980s. It weighed 2 pounds and could have destroyed an army tank. Glares from the other end of the line never had any impact.

    my weight can easily change 5 to 10 pounds overnight (though i wish it would trend downward instead of moving up and down). as for yesterday’s strip, Allan V i won’t drink light (or lite) beer any more as there just isn’t enough taste to them (and i’m Canadian, so i DO drink Canadian beer). my current favourites are Rickard’s Red, Sleeman Dark, and Sleeman’s Cream Ale. Though I also have a soft spot for a Harp or a Leffe Blonde. Thanks, Fairport for the suggestions. if i don’t see them here, i’ll keep them in mind for when i’m next in the USA.

    For those of you who are up during normal waking hours, the spambot usually comes in between 4:30 and 5 am EST. I’ve been as close as 12 minutes behind it throwing flags but if some of you are also there please feel free to join in the fun.

    And is there anyone here who would trust ordering from someone spamming a comic website?

    To answer your question Chromosome, they use various throwaway names each time and are trying to sell brand name clothing at vast discounts using very poor translations into English. Someone else here traced it back to a site in Yugoslavia, exactly the kind of people you might not want to deal with or give your credit info to.

    Guys lose weight faster for various reasons. I’m not sure of all the reasons, but overall physiology and even brain chemistry (yes, the brain does conspire to make us fat both by messing with metabolic rates and causing overwhelming impulsive needs to eat comfort foods; the brain is a problem for both sexes, really) are to blame for the differences between the sexes. As is the hype regarding “diet” soda and “light” beer, though again that’s applicable to both sexes. Carbonation inhibits the body’s ability to metabolize calories and fat. “Diet soda” and “light beer” are oxymorons; if it’s carbonated, it’ll cause weight gain.

    Take Joe’s basic mistake as a hint, my fellow men. NEVER tell a woman how much weight you’ve lost. They’ll hate you for losing the weight even if they were the ones who pushed you into some sort of weight loss program (diet, exercise, etc.). They’ll hate you if you don’t lose weight, too. They also seem to hate other women who lose weight, too. If always being envious of or disgusted at others is a part of being the more evolved half of the species, I’ll gladly remain one step away from being a trained chimp.

    Regarding spammers: the best way to get rid of them is to use a more complicated routine to create an account - one that requires some positive confirmation of the entry before even processing it - such as those much hated “copy these random characters into this space to confirm”. Or you can waste a lot of your staff’s time each day cleaning up after the jerks, and let your audience deal with the annoyance on an ongoing basis (rather than once, at account creation).

    Unfortunately there does not appar to be an easy way to get the anti-Victoria children to button it.

    AAAAAmen to that ear-scorching!!! She doesn’t want to know about it believe me. It’s easier for men to lose weight because they have more muscle in relation to fat. Muscle burns calories while you sleep – so if you increase your musculature (easier if you already have a lot of it), you increase your weight loss. Women already have more fat, less muscle – so harder to increase musculature, easier to add fat. Evolutionarily advantageous (childbearing), longevity disadvantageous (heart attacks, cancer).

    It’s such a double standard. In general men can’t talk about how much weight they’ve lost, but every half pound a women loses has to be a celebration.

    If only there were such a world in which women were secure enough in themselves to enjoy their men’s successes.
