H@#L I'm short and thin but I'm also black so that's another hill of beans. Since you don't workout to mainatin it just make sure you eat a healthy diet and screw them all. Enjoy it while you can cause a fast metabolism can wear off with age or body changes like having a baby. Suck it up. We're here, we're skinny, give us fried chicken.
