From Conservative Book Club:
Have you ever tried to lose weight? More than a few pounds? It takes more than a special diet as Irvin Cobb discovered. Cobb thought that he was just “big boned” and that his size was genetic. His family always filled out in their thirties….
Cobb recounts the true and humorous story of his attempts to reign in his weight. Cobb wasn’t a lazy glutton. He just had a sedentary lifestyle and a special relationship with his food. He and his food had a special bond he told himself. (The bond was more obvious to everyone else.) Interestingly, Cobb describes the various self-delusions that he went through to convince himself that he wasn’t overweight.
* The suit didn’t fit anymore cause it was cheap and shrunk.
* The weight gain was a family trait.
* He wasn’t fat, just well developed.

EDIT: Author should probably read "Cobb, Irvin S" although it seems to be misspelt "Irwin" here and elsewhere on the internet.
