Do Men Lose Weight Easier than Women?

Why is it when friends socialize, the subject of weight usually rolls around?   This is especially true after the holidays when major over-eating takes place.   The guys seem to brag while they pinch their round bellies but the girls suck in their stomachs and say they gained 5 pounds – when actually it is 10.  

Excuses come forth while the ladies turn down dessert and the men call for another beer.   The ladies suggest these reasons for their weight gain:

“I had so much company, I didn’t take time to eat properly.  
 I was so tired I didn’t get to the gym or take walks.
My family gains weight easily.
I didn’t gain that much – I’ll wear my ‘big clothes’ until I lose it.

I’m bloated – it will go away.”

The mens’ excuses are nil – instead they say:

“Hey, I’m more loveable – feel these love handles.
I’ll take it off in a couple of days
I haven’t weighed myself in months.
What’s a few pounds – you put it on – you take it off.
Hey, pass me another beer – it’s good for diets.”

 

The group good-naturedly decides to see who can lose weight before the next month’s meeting.

All agree – the ladies express their best and tried way to lose pounds for the rest of the evening.  The men drink more beer and share sports stories and joke around.

 

At next month’s get-together, it is disclosed:

  • The guys all lost 10 pounds each, don’t know how they did and high-five each other.
  • The silent ladies aren’t talking but are all still sporting their ‘big’clothes.’

It ain’t fair Miz Scarlett, it just ain’t fair.
