funny thing happened on way to pub

Well, was heading to the pub last night w/ the wife for some food and a pint or 2. Biked home, hopped in the shower, and when getting dressed, pulled belt on-felt weird.

It was because I was in the next loop! I guess this cycling/weight loss thing works!!!

Allways nice to go down a notch. Just wait until you have to buy a new belt altogether, you'll skip out of the department store


Congratulations on the weight loss, now go celebrate with pub mix and hearty stouts

Well, that next belt will be soon, since this was the last notch on this one. Unless I want to get the leather punch out, it will be time to go shopping soon.

My commute mate and I are stopping off for a pint on the way home today.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Wait til you have to cut a full foot or more off of the end of your bely and punch new holes......

So far, I've cut 30 inches off the end of mine.......I could get a new belt, but it feels so good shrinking the belt

I'm wearing dad's hand me down, it's older than I am. I haven't bought a 34" waist since college.
