Well, since January I have lost 110 lbs. Still about 50 left for my goal weight of 200 lbs. But, last night for the first time since I can remeber I went shopping, at a mall. Not the Big-and-Tall, not Dickies outlets, not Carhartt dealer, but an honest to goodness mall. I ended up shopping like a little girl trying on clothes XL and XXL shirts and 42 waist (from 58 waist, and XXXXL shirts) and having my best girl friend tell me how it looks. :D I ended up buying 1 pair of shorts, size 42. 1 pair of jeans size 42, havent owned jeans since I was a young boy. 2 t-shirts size XXL. And last but not least a jacket, size XL. Its an oddly exciting feeling for me to shop at a NORMAL store.
Sorry for the randomness of this post but I had to share.

Congrats! I never was at the big and tall level, but was pretty big and still remember so fondly back in March when I decided I was tired of using the belts after losing almost 70 pounds and went from a 40 waist back to a 32 waist (now with a belt). Nothing like new clothes to make you feel like you accomplished something big, especialy (sp?) if you try on the old clothes occasionaly, really makes you feel great!

i guess what really catches me is the fact I have lost 16 inches from my waist in 7 months. 58 inches to 42 inches at this point.

Congrats, as my girlfriend likes to point out, taking 2 laps around the mall is good "excercise" for an "off-day"...of course the weight on the back pocket tends to get lighter and lighter, but still.
