New Pants

I started out 2012 in size 44 pants that were getting tight... Today I bought my first pair of size 36 IN 22 YEARS..

I have had to buy new clothes for work a couple of times and have a stack of 44's that will get altered at some point.

I stood at the rack for a while, walked away, then came back. I didn't want to try them on and have them not fit. Well they did!

Just hope I haven't jinxed myself!

Better give up on altering those 44 to 36. They can't take in 8 inches

Great job on the weight loss

@ Myosmith - Yes it does!

@Vesteroid... Well crap, there goes good money down the drain! I didn't know it wasn't possible. Thanks for the heads up, will be donating them when I get home...
