If my recollection is right - and I'm not 100% sure that it is, but I think it is - by the time I got my first pair of adult sized jeans back when I was in my early teens, I was wearing a size 36 waist.
Well, on Friday night, I was out on a 35 mile bike ride and found myself near the Mall of America, and decided to go for a bite to eat (well, it became a 35 mile ride after I added the 5 extra miles to the mall). However, as I was walking around in bike shorts, I decided to see if it was time for a new pair of jeans (the only interim clothing I've been buying while loosing weight is jeans). So, I tried them on, and I bought a pair of 34 Levi's 501s!
Damn, but that feels GOOD!!!!!!!!
