As some of you may know, Mike Huckabee used to be really really fat, before he admirably took the weight off through diet and exercise.
Anyway, I was just watching Huckabee on CSpan, and thought it looked like he is gaining weight. The campaign trail is brutal for those trying to watch their weight, because there is no time to exercise and you're forced to eat a lot of high fat foods. I wonder if stress from the campaign trail is causing him to gain back some of the weight he lost?
Huckabee lost the weight in a relatively short period of time (6 months, I believe) and has maintained the 110 lb. weight loss. If he did that through diet and exercise alone, more power to him. IMO, it seems more likely that he had weight loss surgery.
6. it took me about 14 months to lose 85 pounds and that was hitting the treadmill
6 days a week for an hour. I've been lucky, i've maintained the loss and i'm trying to lose the last 10 which ironically is taking more time to lose than the 85. If he did have surgery imo there is no shame in admitting it, i thought about having it for a long time but decided i would give it one last try without it and i got lucky, i found something that worked for me but if i didn't i would have gone the surgery route and would have told anyone interested about it.
8. He would never admit he had the surgery, because he's made so much
money off of his book, and gave out so much diet and exercise advice--massive hypocrisy risk. I wouldn't have put it past him, as truly wicked and cynical as I am, that he did whatever he could to lose weight FOR THE PURPOSE of making a book about it and profiting from it. That diet book sure wasn't his first book as Governor. He profited off of school shootings, and also profited off his "moral values" in another book. He's all full of money-making schemes, that Huckabilly. When he isn't President, and he won't be, I predict he'll write a book about the ups and downs of Presidential campaigning. And he'll get a television show. Just watch.
13. They were talking about it (sort of) on MSNBC the other day
Huckabee was out hunting and wearing a silly looking Elmer Fudd hat with ear flaps, and whether or not this was his "Dukakis in a tank" moment. David Schuster was mentioning that his face looked chunky.
