The Best Feeling in the World!

Sunday, May 04, 2014

Over the past 17 months I've noticed lots of things on me that feel better. As I went through the journey, my knees felt better with less pressure on them. If felt good to walk up stairs and tie my shoes. I've even learned how great a good stretch feels after a workout. But the other day, I experienced the Best Feeling in the World. I have a few important meetings coming up at work, and while the dress for my office is normally very casual, I need to dress a little more professional for these particular meetings. The Problem? As I lost 157 pounds, I replaced most of my wardrobe, except for my dressy ones. So, that meant a trip to the store this weekend, to seek out a few outfits for these meetings. Shopping is something a used to dread. When you're a "Big Guy" you get about 4 choices, none of which are flattering and all of which are too expensive. Plus, for some reason, the stores never seemed to have my size. Sure, you can go to the Big & Tall Store, but I was Big, not tall, so anything I got would have to be taken to the tailors and hemmed. Not this time! This time, I walked into the store, didn't go near the Big & Tall Section, and found exactly what I needed, no hemming required. Buying off the Rack! The Best Feeling in the World!
