Pronunciation: fat - kins

Sentence: Ben came from a long line of Fatkins, and to make it worse, everyone in his family was overweight, despite the fact that they were all active people who participated in sports and watched their calories. They had all tried every fad diet that came around, including Jenny Craig, Atkins, Weight Watchers and even the Grapefruit Diet. He remembers that growing up, his mom had been given to using humor as a way to feel better about things. She even affectionately referred to the rolls on her stomach as her little fatkins. Once Ben even tried to sue Dr. Atkins for taking the family surname and capitalizing on it.....

Etymology: Fat (overweight, having an abundance of flesh + Atkins Diet (A diet in which a person attempts to lose weight by reducing the intake of carbohydrates, instead obtaining energy from dietary and stored fat) + Kin (group of people related by blood or marriage)


So he declared a Fatwah on Dr. Atkins...good word! - Nosila, 2009-01-09: 19:48:00

Pronunciation: Epee-lip-id-sed-ih-ment

Sentence: Jason's penchant for pounding beers and caffeinated drinks throughout the day belied his half attempted efforts to lose weight. Unfortunately for him, his rationalizations of his EZ-Chair Ab Workout and 12 ounce arm curls were not enough to overcome the epilipidsediment from settling around his belly.

Etymology: Epi (put on) + lipid (fat) + sediment (a play on sedentary, to stay in one place/ mendacious, to lie)


Challenging but good fun in the onomatopoeia in epilipid ... fun word to say! Speaks layers and layers! Great Won! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-19: 10:28:00

Pronunciation: way - of - lie - f

Sentence: By a voiding calories, Cary hoped to become thin as a calla reed, but he bloomed out like the petals on that lily. Eliminating fatty acids, he still wound up fattyassed. By eating lots of cucumbers and salad veggies, he hoped to tighten his belt a notch or two, but he had to let it out a notch ... due to the inexplicable incomebrance! Cary wanted to scale down, but when he weighed in, he was up'scale'ated. "Help!" Cary cried, "I'm sick of this weighoflife. Please, lettuce turnip and pea it off!

Etymology: Way of Life, Weigh of Life.


Weigh to go, silveryaspen! I love the weigh you pepper your sentences with sayings that are hard to beet! - Nosila, 2008-03-19: 01:14:00

Very good! If Cary doesnt 'meat' this problem straight aweigh, he'll be doomed to simply vegetate and perhaps even grow scales. - Mustang, 2008-03-19: 06:49:00

very nice - Jabberwocky, 2008-03-19: 11:44:00

Pronunciation: fridj a men

Sentence: Martin was on a strict fridgimen to change his eating habits and body shape. Six times a day, he would vigorously stride (a cardio pulmonary exercise) to his refrigerator, open and close the door twenty times (to get a good upper body workout) and then bend over to get a beer from the bottom or reach up into the freezer to get an iced beer mug or ice cream treat (stretching exercises). He might also reach far into the back of the fridge (more stretching) to get cold fried chicken or lemon meringue pie out to eat. His theory was that if the food was cold, his body would have to burn more calories to warm it up so that he could digest it. Yes, his fridgimen was a good thermal workout and yet despite his fine muscle tone (for a 300 pound man) he never seemed to lose any weight. He just put it down to the fact that muscle weighed more than fat...

Etymology: Fridge (nickname for a refrigerator in which the coolant is pumped around by an electric motor, designed to keep foods cold) & Regimen ((medicine) a systematic plan for therapy (often including diet)

However, friends discovered the unhoggable truth about his girthumstances; when, at 2am, they spotted him, somnambulatory, at his local all-night eatery, flaboyant in his dressing gown and slippers, ordering for himself enough food to feed a family of ten.

Etymology: Conflation of GIRTH:the distance around a persons body & CIRCUMSTANCES:The surrounding or pertaining facts, means, influences, etc.,especially asrelated to one's/ones support and way of living.


Girth is a great word ... rounds off your creation very nicely! Outstanding Won! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-19: 10:10:00

Pronunciation: Fatty-mo-sis

Sentence: Jim seems to gain weight by simply having fatty food near his paunch. Scientifically this process is called fattimosis, fat traveling from one area to another directly through the paunch layer. Jim is now at the point where he can butter his bread simply by rubbing it across his stomach.

Etymology: Fatty + Osmosis

Pronunciation: role-backs

Sentence: John couldn't figure out why he had a horrible case of the rolbax. He weighed himself every night before bed and then weighed himself every morning at about 5 pounds more than the previous day's start. He used the weight set day and night for weeks; and was ready to file a complaint to the company until his wife told him he had a horrible midnight snack attack every which John replied, "But I only ate 5 pork chops, two gallons of ice cream and drank half a keg of beer..."

Etymology: roll (to move) + backs (coming back)


Like those rollbacks at Walmart ... that keep creeping up on you! Best part of your words is the 'ax' ... for chopping fat off! Fun Won! - silveryaspen, 2008-03-19: 10:15:00
