You don’t have to be skinny to be hot
We all know the basics of losing weight: The output has to be greater than the input.
So the question is how to make that happen.
Well, first of all you have to watch what you eat and exercise. Sounds so simple, but it is very hard to do.
Before starting on any exercise program, you may consider seeing your doctor first to find out how healthy you are and how much exercise you can do.
My belief is that exercise and how active you are makes a big difference. It does not directly affect your weight nearly as much as your diet, but it does have a big effect on your wellbeing and health.
However, the most important factor by far when you want to lose weight is to eat less and to eat right.
I have friends that have lost a lot of weight on Weight Watchers and similar programs so you may want to check out what they offer:
The Czech capital Prague is strikingly beautiful and one of the most gay-friendly cities in Central Europe
Prague – at times – seems almost bipolar: it has a western vibe but is still proud of its eastern roots. It’s modern but beautifully authentic. And it’s utterly cosmopolitan with a neighborhood feel.
Prague and the Czech Republic have earned a reputation of being more liberal than the neighbours to the east like Poland or the Baltic States, and Czechs’ attitude towards gay rights issues are far more tolerant.
In 2006, Czechia legalized registered partnerships (Czech: registrované partnerství) for same-sex couples and a law legalizing same-sex marriage is being considered by the Parliament as of 2019.
You cannot go to Prague without being touched by its historic and architectural beauty so you don’t have to check out every historic landmark to have a memorable vacation.
The Malá Strana area is a charming neighborhood to walk through if you love looking at historic architecture, and the style of its buildings lends Mala Strana a gentile atmosphere left over from when it housed Prague’s wealthy citizens.
There are no exclusively gay hotels in Prague, but you are likely to feel welcome as a gay man in most upscale hotels. However, some smaller family-owned properties may not always be gay friendly.
The Grand Mark Prague presents an unforgettable combination of tradition and modern design throughout the hotel and features spacious, well furnished rooms in the Golden City, most of which feature a separate living room with a full kitchenette and a seating area, a large bathroom with heated floors, and beautiful garden or street views.
Located in the Old Town in Prague, the 5-star Four Seasons Hotel offers views of the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge. The hotel is set in 3 historic and 1 modern building, decorated in various historic styles.
Guests can enjoy AVA Spa which is set in a historic neo-classical building overlooking Prague Castle and the Cotto Crudo Restaurant serves fine Italian cuisine with fresh ingredients and homemade pasta.
Located opposite the Florenc metro station, Jurys Inn is a 20-minute walk from Prague’s Old Town Square and 5 minutes by metro from Wenceslas Square. It offers free WiFi, an on-site gym and bike rental.
The spacious and modern soundproof rooms at Jurys Inn Prague include a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a work desk and complimentary tea and coffee.
La Fenice is a beautiful and extremely popular property in the heart of the Vinohrady gay quarter. Dance all night and return to this hotel featuring basic but spacious rooms and a large breakfast to help you feel better the next morning.
Gay actor and father of two Cheyenne Jackson urges gays to take better care of our health
The American Horror Story star is the spokesperson for Cigna, a global health service and insurance company that claims to be dedicated to helping people make healthier decisions
In a post/ad on Instagram, Cheyenne says “There’s nothing more important to me than my family – whether it’s eating healthy or spending lots of quality time outside, we’re always showing Ethan and Willow ways to take care of our whole health.
“I have partnered with Cigna to remind the LGBTQ community that the body and mind are more connected than we think.
Cheyenne David Jackson was born July 12, 1975 in Spokane Washington, United States. He now lives in Los Angeles, California.
What is he famous for?
Jackson is an actor and singer with prominent roles on Broadway, film and television.
On Broadway, Jackson has had starring roles in productions such as “All Shook Up” (2005), Xanadu (2007), Finian’s Rainbow (2010) and “The Performers” (2013), among others.
He appeared in the 2006 film, “United 93” and the 2014 rom-com “Mutual Friends”. On television Jackson has had guest roles on “30 Rock”, “Glee” and “American Horror Story”.
Jackson has sold out Carnegie Hall for his concerts “The Power of Two” in 2010 and “Music of the Mad Men Era” in 2011.

Cheyenne Jackson grew up in a conservative Christian community and came out to his family as gay at the age of 19. His mother recalls his coming out as a “difficult time” but feels they have “weathered it well” and grown as a family.

Thousands of gay men and women danced their clothes of in one of the World’s greatest gay events
Miami’s Winter Party Festival – produced by the National LGBTQ Task Force – is one of the world’s largest and best-loved celebrations for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities.
The Festival has evolved into a week-long series of events, taking place on Miami Beach and benefiting the LGBTQ community, both locally and nationally.
In 2019, Festival organizers expect to be making a donation amount similar to last year’s $215,000 to critical services and organizations in South Florida in partnership with the LGBTQ Community Fund at the Miami Foundation.
This year, the Winter Party Festival featured dozens of events, from cocktail parties, to stage shows, to health advocacy programs — drawing more than 10,000 attendees over six days. The theme — With Open Arms — focused on the organization’s dedication to making the Festival a welcoming environment for all.
Many events saw record attendance, including two massive parties at the James L. Knight Center in downtown Miami, Saturday’s day party at Nikki Beach Club, and Sunday’s crown jewel main event on the sands of South Beach.
Other highlights included appearances by RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season one winner Chad Michaels, as well as actor and musician Jai Rodriguez (best known as the culture guide on the Emmy-winning reality show Queer Eye for the Straight Guy).
Miami’s South Beach combines the playful pulse of Rio, the intense revelry of Manhattan, and the tropical ambience of Maui, all on one relatively affordable island that’s just a 10- minute drive from Miami.
In this favorite gay getaway that’s especially popular with the circuit-party set, people pursue dining and partying with a near fanatical fervor. For a relatively small community, the variety of swanky and sophisticated restaurants and nightclubs is astounding. You could easily spend a week here without having to visit the same gay bar or hip eatery twice.
Fashion and food have never been strangers, so it’s not surprising that stylish South Beach offers a thriving culinary scene. However, as many of the most popular restaurants along the city’s traffic- clogged oceanfront have become overrun with tourists, gays and lesbians have flocked to the trendy establishments along the utterly charming Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, where you’ll find consistently better food.
Balans, a chatter-filled London import with a whimsical feel, serves inventive fusion fare. Their location in South Beach has become a favorite of locals and visitors alike. It may have to do with their casual brasserie ambiance and outdoor tables along the pedestrian walkways of Lincoln Road. Or their global menu, with local favorites such as Chilean Sea Bass, Jambalaya, Thai Red Curry and more. Sumptuous food, comfortable prices and an experience that will entice you to linger.
And then there’s Nexxt, with such huge portions, it’s almost silly. But this chaotically popular restaurant does a commendable job with most dishes. The menu reads like a food encyclopedia: Vietnamese crab rolls, buffalo chicken taquitos, pizzas, burgers, and several more pages of drink specials, salads, grills, seafood, and desserts.
Spris is next door to gay club Score, and is great for a quick bite while watching the rest of the world walk by. Pizzas are the main draw, with 30 varieties of thin-crusted pizza baked in a wood-burning brick oven. Spris Miami Beach is the recipient of an “excellent” rating from Zagat.
Doraku Sushi is a calmer, more refined experience than South Beach’s many other sushi spots. Although it does get crowded during the weekday “happy hour” from 5-7 p.m., when certain rolls are only $5.
Away from Lincoln Road you’ll find plenty of great restaurants, too. Count on Grillfish for delicious, fresh, and surprisingly affordable seafood, such as grilled mahimahi with a mango- orange barbecue glaze. The stainless-steel, deco- style 11th Street Diner serves standard fare 24 hours a day, including a great Philly cheese steak and the most voluptuous vanilla malts in South Beach. In the spirit of traditional greasy spoons, the servers are so grumpy they actually yell at the customers from time to time.
On the upper stretch of Ocean Drive, the Front Porch Cafe fosters a lazy, devil- may- care atmosphere – a far cry from the stand- and- model showdowns a few blocks away. The food is eclectic: Thai noodles, pizzas, overstuffed sandwiches, muffins, and hearty breakfasts.
Pop diva Gloria Estefan is part- owner of Larios, a chic, moderately priced, and consistently good (if middle- of- the- road) Cuban restaurant. Try the paella Valencia or the tamale platter, and finish it all off with the fresh guava- and- cheese flan. It’s less snazzy, but nearby Puerto Sagua serves arguably better and more authentic Cuban cooking.
News Cafe is a South Beach original and is part cafe, part bar, and part restaurant. Their patio is a popular spot for chilling out, meeting friends or reading some of the international periodicals on offer. Big Pink diner is located “South Of Fifth” in Miami Beach and serves good, basic food, and is less expensive than other South Beach restaurants.
South Beach’s high- profile discos, which resemble New York’s and L.A.’s massive warehouse clubs, are the big draw during the designated gay theme nights. A few smaller but no less popular cocktail bars stay gay seven nights a week and can be great fun if you’re not in the mood for a major club event.
And don’t overlook Miami proper, which has plenty of great clubs. Space Miami is a classic mega-club with an anything-goes vibe and the best sound system in town. Although it is not a “gay club,” Space hosts occasional gay events, including White Party Weekend parties.
Club Boi at Sandals is a Black/Latino dance club in North Miami which mixes hip-hop, R&B, and more. The crowd is a mix of Black and Latino guys, depending on the night. Features “nude male review” parties on Saturdays.
Also in Miami proper, Club Aqua Miami is an old option made new. It opened in 1972 as the Miami Gay Sauna Body Center and is the hottest bathhouse in these parts.
Back in South Beach, the Palace Bar and Grill is an institution on Ocean Drive, popular thanks to its proximity to the gay beach at 12th Street. The Palace’s huge afternoon crowds spill onto the sidewalk to watch drag queens do cartwheels in the streets and tease passing tourists.
Score is a former Lincoln Road bar now located on Washington Avenue. It hosts nightly events that are popular with locals, including “Planeta Macho” latino nights on Tuesdays. Weekends are busy.
The longest-running of South Beach gay bars, Twist is a great little video bar with a tiny dance floor upstairs and several cozy spots for lounging. The open- air porch off the second floor is especially convivial on a warm evening. Best of all, Twist stays open until 5 a.m. and never charges a cover.
Places to stay
To spend the night, Hôtel Gaythering is Miami’s first “straight-friendly” gay boutique hotel. Located on Lincoln Road, it’s a gay owned & operated boutique style hotel with a Lounge, Coffee Shop, and Do-It-Yourself Spa.
The Stiles Hotel (formerly Hotel Nash) is in walking distance to gay bars, the gay beach, and the rest of what South Beach has to offer. Fully renovated a few years ago with colorful bohemian décor, the hotel features 3 pools in a courtyard.
The National Hotel is beautifully restored with the Art Deco motif preserved, and has nice rooms and Miami Beach’s longest outdoor lap pool at 63 m long.
Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon STUNS With Original Audition Song "Almost Heaven" — American Idol 2019 on ABC - YouTube

I suggest that you seek up one of the many gay or gay friendly congregations that are out there. They can help you find your way in life.
Also, take a look at the comments below. Some of them are really helpful (others not so much). The site QChristian is also great.
