Or Fat, whatever is most PC. Was just scanning through some of the posts I missed over the weekend and came across the Fat Gene one and just wondered how many of us have always been prone to weight gain or is it something that kicked in at a certain age or following having babies etc. Personally I was always "Big boned" and had "eatin' and drinkin" on me, in fact I am at my lightest now than I have been since I was about 13 or 14. So what about the rest of you?? Do you think it is easier to lose weight if you can remember what its like to be slim??
