Full-Figured Man

    I spotted this guy at the Nansemond Indian Tribe Pow Wow - I was amazed at how thin his arms looked in comparison to his waist.

      Texas? I'm literally cracking up. That's my former Step-father. Oh my GOD. There is a casino out there, right? He was a big gambler. The thing is, living with that gut for 17 years, you never forget it. I found your photo through www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/11/24/too-fat-to-graduate-lin.... My mom is also cracking up. This is too strange.

      This photo jumped out at me, while looking at a Huffington post news feed on facebook.
      I was married to the "gut". The last pair of pants that I bought him was a size 56, and that was 7 yrs ago. It is not a hereditary condition. Yes, arm and legs are small( was on the thin side once). This is a case of eating a lot and sedentary lifestyle. Also( blame being obese) on everyone else. This photo made my heart race, from fear.

      Wow! That sure is big. Good idea for a wonderful photo. It makes us modest and humble.
