Joe Wicks yesterday. Shows he’s human I suppose. You don’t get to keep a bod like that without working out regularly it seems. And the pies probably didn’t help!

There’s a reason Ronaldo is still playing at 37.... and Rooney isn’t!

What a difference ! - oh well 🥲

Urmstongran Sat 02-Apr-22 21:57:02

That made me laugh Pantglas ... so true! 🤣

Callistemon21 Sat 02-Apr-22 21:57:02

Oh Joe - how could you!!

Actually, I feel better now 😁
He's human

Coastpath Sat 02-Apr-22 22:00:18

I think he looks more attractive for carrying a few extra pounds and I am sure he would say the same about me after the pie and chips I ate this eveninggrin.

crazyH Sat 02-Apr-22 22:02:05

Btw, how will he make a living now ? Just wondering 🤔

Coastpath Sat 02-Apr-22 22:05:00

If I were him I'd write a book about how to lose a stone in three months and be in shape for summer. Perfect timing!

Call me cynical but I sense a new weight loss and fitness DVD on the horizon 😀

I prefer the more human look, too.
A bit flabby and wobbly.
Nice for a good old cuddle - I used to "court" a man with a body toned like that first pic and it was most uncomfortable to cuddle up to.

Callistemon21 Sat 02-Apr-22 22:23:11

I still don't think I'd be in shape if I lost a stone grin

MissAdventure Sat 02-Apr-22 22:24:06

I'm in shape.
A circular shape like a space hopper.

I can’t stand a skinny man there is nothing more off putting.

I seem to have come out of this winter more cuddly than I was last Autumn! We had a steak pie from the butchers yesterday so I blame the butcher!

I’m not keen on bodybuilder bodies either. Probably just as well!

MissAdventure Sat 02-Apr-22 22:34:57

I like big and beefy.
Not for myself, which is a pity, because I am, in fact, big and beefy.

Callistemon21 Sat 02-Apr-22 22:36:46

I'm more wibble-wobble these days

Kate1949 Sat 02-Apr-22 22:37:46

That's OK. We all know he'll get back to how he was. It's what he does.

Callistemon21 Sat 02-Apr-22 22:38:06

Actually, I like picture 2 as well.

Not so intimidating and more cuddly.

GillT57 Sat 02-Apr-22 22:38:21

Why have a six pack when you can have a barrel?

Me too MissA but I’m working on becoming more of a figure 8. Though actually space hoppers look more comfortable and friendly than dumbbells.

BlueSky Sat 02-Apr-22 22:58:57

He’ll do! grin

GagaJo Sat 02-Apr-22 23:27:45

He's got a lovely, smiley, kind face in both pics. The most important thing, IMO.

Photos taken of him collecting his MBE medal on Wednesday

mokryna Sat 02-Apr-22 23:42:46

Show him in a better light

MissAdventure Sat 02-Apr-22 23:48:45

He isn't my cup of tea.
I know he'll be devastated to know it, but there it is.
I hadn't actually seen him before now.
