Clothes shopping used to be one of my least favorite things to do. Why? Well, prior to my WLS last September, I always had a hard time finding clothes at a "normal" store like Kohls that truly fit correctly, especially pants, where finding anything above a 42 waist was nearly impossible, so either it was "pour" into a 42 or head for the dreaded "Big and Tall" stores where I would normally pay full price.
Thankfully that is no longer an issue. In fact now the "problem" is to not buy too many clothes in the same size because they will be too big! Nice problem!
My latest "casualty" was some microfiber shorts I had purchased 5 years ago when I had lost some weight. I wore one pair to play golf about a month ago and I literally had to tighten my belt on the last notch to keep them from falling down. Fast forward to last Thursday, hoping that maybe one of the other pair of shorts was smaller, but not the case, and in fact i could not even keep them up with a belt.
Fast forward to today -- mentioned to my wife that I need to get some shorts, so we stopped after breakfast at Kohls, and thankfully, shorts are on sale!
The best part -- size 34 waist!!!!!! And for fun, I did try on a 32, but it was a bit tight, but honestly the last time I think I was in a size 34 waist had to have been around my first wedding back in 1978!!
Of course this means come the fall I will have to start looking for new jeans, but hey this is a reward, and I am enjoying every minute of it!
