Since I started watching my weight and exercising I managed to drop from size 42 to size 40 pants and from XXL to XL hoodies and polos. I’ve not actually weighed myself recently but I don’t feel like I have gained any weight. Also, Sweetous as of late has been telling me that my clothes are too baggy and yesterday evening LB concurred with that. So, today I tried an experiment…..
I went to Wal-Mart and bought a pair of size 38 pants; not only a size smaller but I also got the “regular fit” as opposed to the “carpenter” style I have been wearing. Then I went to Target and bought a size L hoodie. When I got home I tried them on and asked Sweetous what she thought. She really liked the way the pants fit; she said the hoodie was “iffy”. I would say they are for sure tighter than what I am used to, but do look better.
I shall continue my walking program and as well as keeping the calories down as much as possible. I hope to get a couple more bike rides in before winter too. So, if I continue on the downward trend with my weight, I will have to buy some smaller clothes whenever I can afford it.
Money is tight now, but that’s a whole ‘nother story. Well, at least gas is going down (for now anyway). I filled my tank for $2.899 per gallon today !
