Tight pants accentuate the tummy roll. Body-hugging shirts highlight the puffy pouch. The spare tire in the middle gets a lot of flack.

“Any woman can get a muffin top. But women are more likely to gain excess belly weight – especially deep inside the belly – as they go through perimenopause and into menopause, when their menstrual cycle ends.

Who’s responsible for all this global warming/climate change? Recently, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham was criticized by a climate activist when she proposed working with the oil and gas industry to reduce methane emissions.
