As long as the men don't have a "dicky do" (when your stomach sticks further than your dick does), me, the wife doesn't mind. My husband is on his feet for work a lot. He does ride his bike and goes to TRX classes. But he still has a tiny stomach pouch. Yes, he probably needs to do situps, etc. But for a man his age, his body looks better than most his age! Was watching Dr. Oz the other day. He said let your body Fast for 12 hours. So, like don't eat anything past 7pm, and not until 7am the next morning! I have been doing this myself and it does help. Cardio exercise is the only thing that makes us "older" people lose weight. Bike riding, power walking, jogging, running, or our favorite: HEAVY DUTY SEX! ;>)

Thanks Quip - I am one of the worst when it comes to getting out there and getting some exercise. Probably because I am on my feet moving constantly for 11 hours every day, literally! But I also dislike the gym and would rather do another form of exercise! I am blessed with a smaller build and decent genes and I watch what I eat and stay away from the crap fast foods but I know I need more exercise in my life!

BB4more As a fit guy I have NEVER said it's easy! Because frankly it's NOT! There is a very small percentage of the population that are blessed with incredible genes. These lucky few can look fantastic as they pass into their 40's, and even through their 50's and beyond! But for the vast majority of us, if you want to stay fit, and look and feel great, you have to work HARD at doing so! I agree working out and watching what you eat doesn't work for everyone. Some people have medical issues such as low thyroid that can make losing weight very difficult. But there are medical options for those people. Thyroid supplements can be prescribed by your doctor! But the fact of the matter is, America is the fattest nation in the world! Have you ever seen some of the photos taken in the 40's, when the US was involved in WWII? You didn't see a bunch of overweight or obese people in those pics. Not because they avoided taking pics of those people, the fact is most people were not overweight back then! Since that time, our culture has consumed more and more fast food, we have focused on playing computer games like Halo and grand theft auto, instead of getting outside and doing something physical, like riding a bike, or playing some sport like basketball, baseball, volleyball, or even go bowling! Any physical activity beats using your thumbs on the game controller as you sit on your butt on the couch! This has even affected our children! There are a lot of overweight kids these days! It has gotten so bad that I see people all the time who describe themselves as average build, when in fact if you look at their height and weight, they are considered obese, or morbidly obese by the medically accepted BMI charts! People are so used to seeing overweight people around them, it's now considered the norm! We use the classic excuse I'm too busy to work out, or watch what I eat! Well you can ALWAYS make time for what is important to you! Like they say, if great bodies came in a bottle, everyone would have one! But they don't! It requires HARD work and dedication to get fit and stay fit! But the rewards FAR out weigh the costs in SO many ways! I have talked with a lot of the more fit couples on here, let me tell you something, the vast majority of them work their butts off to look and feel the way they do! So if you truly desire to get fit and look great, take some steps in the right direction! Go see your doctor if you believe you have a medical condition preventing you from reaching your fitness goals. We can't all look like fitness models, the genes we were born with are the single biggest factor affecting our body type and physical physique. But getting reasonably fit, and staying fit, at least as much as possible given the genes you were dealt in life, could likely be one of the most rewarding things you EVER do for yourself in your lifetime!

I find it incredibly how many of us skinny/fit guys keep saying "it's so easy, just watch what you eat and work out" as if the folks not as skinny/fit haven't ever considered that option.

People are overweight for a variety of reasons, not all of which are laziness. Get off the high horse, people, and offer something more than the common sense bullshit that is easy to say when you're already skinny and hard as hell to actually do when you aren't.

And just show I'm skinny and "fit" too... my "abs" picture...

I don't feel I am perfect by any means, but I am also not carrying around an extra 30+ pounds and in my pictures showing that I am a size 2......like the pictures of the sm I have run into recently.

This is what I am constantly running into and it is frustrating. Yes, I tend to lean toward men who are bigger than I am but I am a small woman so that means just about everyone is going to be bigger than I am. I prefer taller muscular (not meat head) builds over slender builds. What is so wrong with keeping your photo's updated and your self in some sort of shape?

Just a few comments on some of the previous posts. It has been my observation that most men in the vanilla world tend to be in much better shape, or at the very least more HWP than there female partners. But if you look at the national stats, they say more men are overweight, but more women are obese. Either way I can't see an in shape partner being terribly happy about the fact their partner is overweight or obese, regarless if they are male or female. As far as the not having time excuse, that's just what it is, an excuse! Being overweight or obese has such a negative impact on SO many areas of your life! It causes numerous very serious health problems, it causes joint pain and early joint deterioration, makes you tire out more easily, and in many cases causes low self esteem. Those are only a few of the issues involved. Anyone can find time to workout! It's ALL about priorities! You don't have to go to the gym to get fit! Simply watching what you eat and exercising regularly will work! There are many workout videos available if you need guidance or a routine to follow, and the bottom line is, each and every one of them will work if you stick to them and do them consistently! If you can't fit 30 minutes a day into your schedule to WO, then set your alarm a half hour earlier and WO before you start your day! Sure it's a sacrifice and takes committment, but what in life is worthwhile that doesn't? The rewards will FAR outweigh the sacrifice! As they say, if great bodies came in a bottle, everyone would have one, but they don't! I am amazed at just how many people are miserable, when simply working out and getting in shape would make an enormous positive difference in their life! Getting invloved in some sort of competion can definitely provide motivation if that is lacking. But just looking and feeling so much better should be an huge motivator in and of itself to get fit!

And sometimes the woman works, a lot, yet still finds time for fitness training and competitions. Sorry, "working a lot" is just an "excuse". And I've seen plenty of stay-at-home women who don't take the time to workout.

It's all about a person's motivation. Exercise just for weight management usually = a person who gives up eventual. Training for fun events (Crossfit, Ragnar, Spartan, Tough Mudders, etc) gives purpose to the exercise. Maybe not your cup of tea, but it helps keep me motivated (cause I really hate jogging, but if I want to do the event, I have to train for it).

Well, I'm a little past HWP myself, but my girlfriend, who happens to be ten years younger than I, says she prefers her men a little meaty. Go figure. It takes all types.

Basically he gets a pass since he's offering up his wife. He thinks its a fair and honest trade, so no requirements to be visually appealing to the other wife. Very few we know think differently. Our close friends are nothing like that.

Many of the couples we've known over the years have stated, she is the bait and that's what the lifestyle is about. Women call the shots and the husband is her safety net, along with him getting some strange in exchange for her getting to do what she wants.

Sad, but true to this very day!
