Queen Was Right

About Fat Bottom Girls at least. They do make the rocking world go round. Or they are at least healthier than previously thought.

A type of fat that accumulates around the hips and bottom may actually offer some protection against diabetes.
Subcutaneous fat, or fat that collects under the skin, helps to improve sensitivity to the hormone insulin, which regulates blood sugar. Mice that got transplants of this type of fat lost weight and their fat cells shrank.
Researchers have known for some time that fat that collects in your abdomen -- known as visceral fat -- can raise your risk of diabetes and heart disease. People with pear-shaped bodies are less prone to these disorders. It seems that their fat may be actively protecting them from metabolic disease

So don’t worry about a large derriere ladies. Go have another bon-bon or three while watching General Hospital. Stop that exercising too. The working out and dieting advice has all been a giant conspiracy started by men to make you all super-thin and miserable.

The guys are the ones who are in trouble…it’s the beer belly that will kill ya.

Uncle Earl, thanks for sending me the picture.

Hey Rob,

Do you remember the Spinal Tap song 'Big Bottom Girls"? If you don't, you need to watch that movie immediately or I can't talk to you anymore. ;-)

I have lost 12 pounds. I have about 18 more to go. I look 'just fine' to most, but I am the kind of chick that gets it in the tummy. Luckily, the 12 I lost I lost from there. Woo Hoo!

Anyway, I still have a great butt and legs. So, I am mostly likely going to die of something dreadful because of my lack of pear shapedness. Great! Something else I have to worry about.

Sorry for making you cry, Ironman.

Eat more chocolates and bonbon (do you really use the same word?).
Yes, we can. Yes, we can.
But we won't

Apparently loading up on the hips and bottoms doesn't ward off gestational diabetes. Damn.
So why is it the same four women and the Donk are the only ones who ever leave comments on your blog, Rob??

Rob said...

well that stinks about the gestational diabetes.

it's a select group that hang out here :)
