Default #gainabeardloseabelly

"Movember" is coming up. Asking gentlemen to grow a mustache to help promote men's health, but why not take it a bit further!

Weight is a huge factor in health, so (even though I don't tweet) I came up with the #gainabeardloseabelly hashcrap to maybe get all of us men into a weight loss mood while taking the mustache a little bit more (70's era porn stars kinda took that look).

What do you say? Who couldn't afford to lose a few pounds? I sure as heck could.

Gain a beard, lose a belly!

Starting Saturday, November 1, 2014, I, and hopefully with the help of others on this forum, will start a one month diet. During this time, I will not shave, in the "Movember" theme. Gain a beard, lose a belly. #gainabeardloseabelly

Great idea, and I fully support. Suggest changing the spelling from "loose" to "lose."

I did this last fall...dropped 50 pounds and I am in the best shape of my life. Try adding this to your routine.

Every time you get a beer, you have to do 100 situps and 50 pushups. That will get the ball rolling

Well, not sure I can pull a beard off but I can go for the other part. Always working and succeeding on it (though those who first meet me won't know that) and have dropped well over 100 with more to go. Still working on the beard but I think being female works against me there and probably will make me less desirable to the men-folk.

That's a good idea. May look funny at the bar though. Maybe I should put my stationary bike next to my keezer.

I'm already a skinny dude, and any attempts at growing facial hair make me look like a pederast.

I hate Novembers....

Bars are okay to take off, but I did put my decline situp bar in the way of getting to the beer fridge. I usually lose weight drinking

Since getting out of the army November is when I grow my full beard out anyway. If I can spare the time I'll try my hand at dropping a pound or two. No promises though, 7day work weeks are beginning to get the better of me.
