So, one of the things I did recently was pick up some clothing that I’ve stored at my cousin’s place for over two years. It was a box, mostly filled with clothing that I didn’t even fit into when I bought it, but instead of returning, I held onto, in hopes that I would get my weight under control and be able to wear again.
I should also note that, when at my heaviest, I was wearing a size 46, and usually only with those hidden elastic waists that give you an extra inch or two, or very loose fitting jeans.
The box of clothing had stuff in size 42, and while that’s only two sizes smaller, it has been a long time since I was able to fit into the stuff. Like I mentioned, two years ago, I stored brand new clothing in hopes of fitting into it someday.
While these pants are a bit tight, I am still very excited. I thought this stuff was size 44, but even then, I was happy to have gone down a bit more than a full size. Of course, that only brings me closer to my eventual goal. Most stores only sell up to size 38 or 40 in men’s pants, and I want to be able to shop at those places.
While there are more places I can buy size 42 from, as it is only a size above the normal maximum, it still feels crummy walking into an adult clothing store, and knowing that I can’t buy any pants there because I’m too big for them.
On the flip side, it is nice to no longer need to special order all of my clothing from Sears online or only from big and tall menswear shops. In the next month or two, I hope these pants go from being tight, to normal, to a bit loose. Wish me luck!
