I'm 5'-11" and weigh 185 lbs. I can't even get a belly, must be genetics. But I do have a beer ass!

uh, yeah?

I am short. very short. 5'4" Up till I took my desk job I weighed 145 for ten years.

Now, 160.

160 at my height is a definite beer gut. the good news is I am quitting the desk job very soon and going to be able to get rid of it again!

I'm working on it. 6'2" and just about 200, but it's getting more concentrated in the one location. Haven't had to start buying bigger pants yet, thank God!

I'm 6' 2" and about 240. I'd like to drop 20-25 lbs. I don't have a big belly, but I've gone some room for storage.

I'm going to comment on my poor husband because I don't have a beer belly. He is around 5'5" and weights in at just over 200. He has a gut, no denying it. I contributed greatly to this because I love to cook and bake. Now, I am brewing his favorite dark beers. No, I am not trying to do him in either.

If I had to be done in, that would certainly be my method of choice ...well, I guess there is ONE other way that would be better.

6'-2", 192.

I have the kind of body type that I can't get away with drinking and eating a lot. In my later years of high school into my first year of college, I wasn't overweight, but I was on my way there. Not in great shape at all. Second year in college I tried some nautilus, etc., but never got into it. Third year we had a brand new gym at VT and I got into it. Hired a trainer and learned weight training. That summer, my not-yet-wifey was waitressing at Outback, so we were on opposite schedules. I used that free time to drop about 25 lbs. and increase my aerobic capacity by about 25%. Slung weights around and hit the stairmill like it was my goddamned job. And I changed my diet. Since then, I've been a gym rat. My diet isn't as stringent as it once was, and I don't push my lifting limits like I used to, but I consider myself in great shape. If I didn't drink, I'd be in much better shape though...but screw that. Right now I'm training for an on/off-road 10k marathon on a month, so not weight training as much...more running.
