Right-on Craig, my five years at the Gym took me on a wonderful voyage from a skinny Canoe to a five masted Frigate and well armed. I put a lot of muscle on the bones (15 1/2 inches) I learned from the experienced weight lifters that the only way for a genetically skinny person to gain weight was to add lots of muscle. The first two years I went from 120 pounds to 180, my fear of going to the Beach was gone! Like you, I rarely eat sweets, fruit is better.
Thanks Mel, to tell the truth I like weighing my 175 pounds rather than the 120 pounds when I was 20 years old and the girls at the beach would kick sand in my face-Ha-Ha! Now at my age the only place that weight finds a home in in the La Bonanza (Gut), my poor belt gets tired of having so many new holes put in it.
:) its like reverse psychology! Some are thin when young
the later food becomes their weakness, then some are over
weight when young and as they age they are thin..nonetheless,
when there is good food who can resist?
Made me giggle. They keep telling me it must be old age but the truth is I don't care the way I used to when young. And the food taste better without worrying about the weight. I will start walking again. All the best to you
