    carry the fat around in the car / by travelling in the car

    Hello all users!

    Suppose I want to slim down. A close friend of mine is, however, of another opinion and says "Why don't you buy yourself a car and drive to work rather than walking day in day out? Aren't you sick and tired of it?"

    To defend my opinion, I answer "Why should I carry the fat around in the car".

    I could also say "Why should I carry the fat (by) getting around in the car?"

    By saying "Why should I carry the fat (by) getting around in the car?" or "Why should I carry the fat (by) getting around in the car?", I mean "Why should I grow more fat round the hips (by) travelling by car" or "Why should I swallow in laziness by driving a car"?

    What do you think of my variants and do you consider them acceptable?

    Thank you.

    I like the first one. (It's clever.) I don't care for the others. (But why should you listen to me? I do this for free.)

    If you really want to slim down walking is a good option. Going places in your car will help you keep the weight on. (Try stairs.)
