I fit the towel!

Ok well I know it's a towel and they could have just gotten a bigger towel at the gym to trick us

I have been going to lifetime for a while. I went to meet my wife for a swim today and after I rinsed off I put the towel around and expected to have to hold it together but I was able to tuck it into itself and it stayed up!
I guess I really did need to get those 44s that I got and can get ride of the 48 stretch I have been holding onto.

And to top it all off I got my first "Get the #### off the road" on the way home from the gym Thankfully I was in a good mood so I remain at 1900 altercation free miles for the year.

That's an old trick to keep business in tough times. Management changes sizes to make members think they are doing well so that they renew the meberships as most don't attend anyway. Especially effective in tough economic times! Worked on you didn't it?

I think you may be right.. I wonder if that clothing I bought was made by the same evil genius. Todays 44 is 2 years ago 50 which is 4 years ago 46.. Yo yo diets or yo yo sizing
