If they're a myth, I'm carrying around a great big myth on the front of my body!

I got mine from pizza and BBQ.  It definitely didn't come from the beer.

Good point Joe. Most people consume calorie intensive foods with thier beer. Then blame the beer for the belly. My eating habbits are very clean and I still have a 30 inch waist in spite of all the beer I drink.

I was kinda tongue-in-cheek with that, but I definitely gained after I got married and I drink less beer than I used to.  More pasta, pizza, etc. though.  Hopefully working back towards my old self.

Only a 12 pack?  Hmmm, I've got at least a corny.  LOL

Why bother with a six pack, when you can carry around a pony keg...

Skinny doctors bother me.  Wish my doc was like my dentist ('bout five feet tall by five feet around) then he wouldn't be able lecture me about my weight.

Sorry if i scare you. My metabolism is young, I can eat garbage all day and sit on the couch with brew all night, without gaining any weight. I have been told the only way I can gain weight, besides lifting weights "Like thats going to happen," is to get older. 150lbs and not yet thirty ;)
