    Hey, I talked in another forum about my love handles and asked if anyone permanently had left over chub or skin or things like that simply because they were overweight. So to sum up the question: is it possible that being overweight at a time in my life has permanently altered certain areas?

    So, this is what happened. Two people answered my question. The other 10 gave me tips about training and nutrition. So I wonder, has anyone noticed that reading comprehension skills aren't what they used to be?

    A)Who says reading comprehension was ever a common skill?

    B) This is a forum for (duh) jocks.

    C) Last year, the American Institute for Research released a study that found that fewer than half of U.S. college graduates can pass a simple reading comprehension test.

    D) For more information, view the documentary DVD "Idiocracy."

    Hmmm. You actually asked, "And I am just wondering from other's experiences: does the muffin top ever go away?"

    When people gave you training and nutrition advice, the implication was very clear, "Yes, it can go away, and here's how."

    If they didn't talk about the possibility that you've permanently altered parts of your body -- well, maybe they didn't know. But they did answer the part that they did know. I declare them innocent (he said solemnly).

    Tsk tsk. Many said "Cardio cardio cardio and maybe you can try eating right, etc. etc. etc." I still say BURN THEM; however, I do give a full reprieve to all who answered the initial question and then extrapolated.
