great dilema

Monday, August 01, 2011

I found myself in a strange new situation yesterday.

About 3 weeks ago, my wife and I went to Goodwill to get some clothes that fit as we continue to lose weight. At the beginning of the year, I wore a xxl shirt and 38 waist jeans. 3 weeks ago, I bout a few 34 inch jeans and a few button up casual shirts in large. Great huh?

Here is the dilemma. I went to put on a shirt that I really liked that fit very well for church yesterday. To my surprise, the shirt was huge on me. The pants all fit if I wear a belt only. Wow. In my mind, there is no way that I should be needing to go buy a shirt smaller than a large. What? No way. This is too soon. I am still 229 pounds, down from 276 (282 @ my largest). I would think that I should fit a large well until about 180 ish.

This is.the best problem I have had in a long time and a welcome problem. I need to get smaller shirts. Sorry man boobs, youre no longer welcome. You just don't fit anymore.
