Like many of the users of this forum, I'm a person that fall into life rules:
Go to college
Get o Job
In my 20's I was like 180-190 lbs (6.2 ft tall) so I used 32x34 501 levis that I loved to wear with cowboy boots.... I'd never been very amused to fashion expensive brand clothes, I simply got into a store, pick up whatever I liked from many different styles ($10 to $20 shirts max and $20 to $40 pants max) and went out the store in 15 min.
After some years of lazy a$$ I went to 274 lbs 42 inches waist and XXL shirts. Until that moment I realized of what I lost… “my freewill” of choosing clothes.... and what important is that.
1.- wearing 42X34 and cowboy boots? Not looking good… also I had some hard time trying to take my boots in and out as I couldn’t bend to much, (some of you cowboy boot users know that it takes some strength to do that sometimes, specially if you use 12)
2.- some stores are limited to XL shirts and 38 inches waist pants, or sizes like 40 inches and up pants and XXL and up shirts are very limited in styles, what I really hate and is when I started to think on doing something not only for clothes issues but for my health is when I got to the point when I had to pick whatever is available on my sizes, no matter if you like it or not, I hate that…..
I went back to my bike, I’m 261 after some doctor supervision nutrition plan and some easy rides on my mountain bike… I’m starting to use some XL shirts that were in the closet for years and my goal is to finish 2007 weighting 200 lbs and riding 40-50 road and off road miles.
Anyone hates to go shopping clothes?
