Sixpackflabs

Created by: Tigger

Pronunciation: /siks-pak-FLABZ/

Sentence: Russell had switched to whole-grain doughnuts, light beer, and he was now using only low-fat mayonaise on his bacon and cheese sandwiches, plus, he'd been taking the stairs up to his 2nd floor apartment once a day, instead of using the elevator, and he'd even started doing armchair aerobics — trying to reach down to touch his knees during the TV commercials — and yet he was still gaining weight. Now he had sixpackflabs to show for it, and was well on his way to sporting a keg-belly.

Etymology: blend of; Six-Pack-Abs - well developed abdominal muscles (colloqiualism for the three pairs of bulges apparent in well defined abdominal muscles) + Flabs - soft fatty body tissue (back-formation from flabby, from Middle English, flabband "flapping")

Rolbax

Created by: Biscotti

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 night...to 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)
