Where is the ‘Me” in Health? — After all, it is all about ‘Moi’!


The Da Vinci ManLet Others Define “Health” For You?

In my last post “What is Health?” I showed you, my dear readers, all four of you who are reading this, how to search the web to find out how other people define “health.”  Many of those definitions are reliable and offered by experts in their fields.  You could, of course chose your definition of “health and fitness” from among them.

Or, one could, I suppose, rely upon the reactions of others around you to let you know that you’re fit and healthy.  Hmmmm…  I can envision it now, months from now having finished my journey and living a lifestyle of health, I strut, *ahem*, stride down the streets of Oaklawn……

[ Cue the music for the fantasy sequence … ]

Model with awesome bodyBeing Fit and Healthy means having pecs of death.  It means having biceps and triceps of steel that send shivers of desire up the spine of every red-blooded gay man who sees me.  It means having a set of abs that will stop traffic.  Gay men will look at me and drool.  Straight men will look at me and feel insecure.  Straight women will weep because they can only look but not touch.  Butch biker lesbians will nod their heads in approval.  Being fit and healthy means I will have a body like the guy in the photo to the left.

When people me see me they will…

. . . kinda grunt like they’ve just been punched and softly say “Mer-say!”  while fanning their face with their palm.

Folks will…

. . . turn to their friends and whisper “There ought to be laws,” accompanied by a slight shake of the head and followed by a soft sigh of longing while craning their neck for another glimpse of my perfect physique…

And, some, sadly, will be envious of my success; those poor souls who have been starving themselves silly and have been sweating their ass off in a gym for weeks will glare and mumble…

. . . “Let’s tie the bitch down and stuff Twinkies down her throat! She’s obviously had work done.”

A Man’s Waistline(s)


Once upon a time, I used to have a 28″ waist. Of course that was waaaaaaaay back in my high school days. Now my waistline is considerably larger than 28″ inches. In fact I refuse to divulge it until I’ve lost a few of those inches! So there!

But since we’re talking about waist lines, it is not widely known, but there are actually three waist lines on a man who is out of shape…

A Man's Waistlines ©Waistline No. 1 — Pants size

This is the waist size of the pants which a man wears. However, as anyone who has ever bought pants for their husband, boyfriend or significant other knows, the inches listed on the label bear no relation to what the man’s actual waist size may be, especially if he has *ahem* a “well rounded figure.”

Indeed if he suffers from Dunlap’s Disease, where his belly dun lapped over his pants, the pants size may be significantly smaller than his actual waist.
