I'm at work on a story that features weight gain and loss. Emphasis on "story"- hopefully this will end up being a complete tale. So I want the rates of gain and loss to be realistic. The plot is straightforward- two friends falling in love. Liberty, a male tiger, is fascinated by his female friend's gut and decides to put on some pounds. Along the way they discover that love is more than meets the eye. Another thing I'd like help with is the dates Lib and Julie go on. I've little to no dating experience. Just assume the setting is a small town or suburb in the US. Thanks in advance.
