So back in May I was starting to strain XXL shirts. They don't pull punches with dude clothes. I wasn't large, I wasn't extra large, I was extra extra large. And that was accurate. I had a huge belly.
I was in 46 inch pants and starting to push 48. I was in an Under Armour clothes store, I really like them and they run a tad small and/or don't give room in the belly.
Well I now fit comfortably in large UA shirts and I am not far from a medium in some brands. My wife wanted me to get new jeans because I was just belting up my 46 inch ones.
I ordered a 505 42 inch from Amazon thinking it would be tight but maybe I would fit in it. It was actually a bit large So returning it for a 40. Haven't been 40 in a long time, well over a decade, probably two decades.
I still want to get to at least 200. But it feels good to just be 'large' now. I have been married 9 years. My wife has never seen me this small before. Feels nice.
