If SHE wants to please ME by keeping trim and slim - that's totally up to her and I'm not going to say no.

If she doesn't well "hey ho hey ho - it's 136 we go...

It’s very difficult to lose weight indeed, first step would be to do what it takes to at least maintain and stop gaining weight.
Anyway I don’t believe anyone can be encouraged or motivated to lose weight, it takes a high level of personal commitment.

OK I'll tone it down.

If she wants to please me as well as herself by staying slim and trim then that's fine by me.

It's her body to do with as she wishes.

If she gets a bit too fat and strains my retinas, then I'll still stand by her but my trips to the beer gardens would be more frequent.

Hey you are not pushing that "Special Chinese Tea" doing the rounds lately are you - the one that guarantees you'll be thin in no time.

Back on topic, I reckon a bit of local education might help. For example, Mrs Cargo had no idea that sugar is the enemy and how much of it there is in Coke/soft drink/energy drinks and that consuming too much carbohydrates (aka white rice) the body converts that to sugar. And there is a sugar in beer and wine...

A couple of her girlfriends who are getting concerned about their weight and have gone all healthy by going to the gym and eating less etc but then go and blow it all by drinking beer and enjoying the cheap cocktails at Ohhlala..

Never knew fat was so damn profitable bro. It was an interesting read. The wiki on him was good too.

My missus goes to a Chinese tree specialist - last time was about $100 for about thirty different tree barks and twigs.

I just run with it - never know - tea tree oil was a long time urban myth from AUS but then it proved true and is big business now.

She also brews Srah Thnam with logs and other stuff in it to keep herself sane with a little tipple now and again.

Occasionally I stumble on her secret stash and it's gone in a few days - I just can't resist.

This time I can't locate it - I know it's there somewhere in the house but she's cottoned on and her hiding places have become steadily sneakier over the years - Damn!

Actually I think African Gentlemen prefer the larger sized woman - it's a positive virtue.

I think reading no expat in Cambodia likes skinny rakes GSM skanks or fat western feminazi - make them a sandwich type land-whales.
