Nah,, he'd be talking about how other women were looking at him.

HFCS is in almost all breads. It is the second or third ingredient in many loaves of bread these days. We stopped buying any bread with the stuff in it.

Amazing what I have been able to do with my belly by just eliminating daily wrist curls.

I think you'll find you actually need to measure yourself to do comparisons over time 'cos the clothing industry has consistently made clothes larger but kept the numbers the same. They even do it with mens' pants. I thought that I had recovered my youth when I got back in size 34 pants from size 40, then I discovered some old photos of me in my 20's when I used to wear 34 pants and I looked really skinny. I then measured my waist with a tape measure

It is more difficult to know the change in womens' dress sizes but it is fairly dramatic according to DW who now wears dress sizes smaller than she ever has in her entire life.
