Or even XX.

Just run of the mil X...as in XL.

This weekend I bought shirts for the first time at the regular clothing store in just an XL size. I'm also now down to wearing a 44 waist paints (and some 42s). Getting rid of an X on the shirts was a big psychological thing for me and I'm very happy :carrot:.

Also, now, I'm starting to no longer feel like a circus freak. I used to look at people's faces when I passed them in the street and I could just tell they were thinking how fat I am. I'm still a big guy, but I'm not unusually large, and that means a lot.

I'm 37 pounds away from just being "overweight". I honestly don't feel obese anymore and I can't wait for the day that I can drop this label once and for all!

Matt, congrats to you!

I too am dropping the xxx behind my size. I have always joked that I did not want to look like an adult film with my size..... so today-- I went to try on scrubs b/c my 2nd set is drooping off me..... I am a MEDIUM. I don't remember EVER being a medium. Of course, my height helps me pull it off..... but who cares, I am THERE! I too am waiting for the last 19 pounds to drop off so I am not OVERWEIGHT anymore..... I never want to see that diagnosis again!

Good luck to you in your final leg of your WL journey and a million times more luck maintaining-- they say that is the hardest part, so I am going to give it a run for it's money!

And you won't have to pay the fat tax anymore - you know - that extra two or three dollars because you have more than one X on your shirt? My DH always called that the fat tax. He was very glad to quit paying it, too. Great job!

Sneaky, sneaky! The first thread by a guy that have seen and it has XXX in the title! I was almost afraid to open it (ha!). Then I read it and WOW! You have accomplished so much already. Good for you for taking pride in that great new size. Are you gonna buy a bunch of new clothes? :carrot::carrot::carrot:

A big laugh for your title thread. That is so wonderful. It is even better when people don't look as you like out of the ordinary. Two great NSVs. Congrats and lots of applause.

Matt, you are just kickin' butt and takin' names later, aren't you!??? You are doing so awesome and now I'm guessing that when people are looking at you, they are thinking, "Who is the cute dude?"

Congratulations!
