Default NSV: My two stomachs...

are becoming one

I never wear cotton lounge pants because they make my "lower stomach" horrifyingly noticeable. It happens with jeans, too, but not as bad.

Anyway, I ordered some shoes and sweaters from GAP and got a pair of their lounge pants in XXL that were on clearance thinking I'll be able to wear them soon enough.

I tried them on figuring they'd be too tight, but lo and behold, they looked wearable! I went into the bathroom for a closer look because I was in a shadow, but my stomach actually is beginning to look like your average fat gut instead of the dreaded Double Gut.

This is something that's always been a particularly frustrating source humiliation, so this is a big deal for me

I have an upper gut too. It's not a muffin top but more like a loaf of bread.

Thanks, guys! Ah, the things overweight people find joy in

chubbyhipster, I just noticed you're in Portland! I'm joining you in a few weeks, and I can't wait! The summers in Florida are brutal — I'm so happy to escape this upcoming one.
