As I”ve mentioned before, I lost more than 50 pounds (23kg) over the past year and I’m still going!
This feels like daja vu because I did the same thing a few years ago. I lost more than I have now, but on the way down I got to the size I am at the moment. It was very exciting! It is again.
The first time I lost a lot of weight, (I gained it all back; I thought my heart was going to break.) I really needed some shirts that didn’t fit me like a tent. Plus, I wanted to show off my achievement in clothes that fit.
My dear ol’ dad was so proud of me, he gave me money to buy some new clothes. I needed shirts, mostly. I had jeans that I bought previously that pretty much fit me.
I love Rock’n’Roll and I always wanted RnR t-shirts but until I started shopping on eBay where you can get just about any size, I was out of luck. My big self wouldn’t fit into any of those kind of shirts I could find.
Then I got to this size and suddenly the world of rock shirts was open to me! When I’d spent all the money I had more than 15 new shirts. Some we’re vintage but most were new.
Some examples: a couple of U2 shirts, Jim Morrison, the Velvet Under Ground, a couple Bowie shirts, the Police, Dead Can Dance, Garbage, Pink Floyd, the Clash, the Pogues, etc!
Now, instead of having to buy new shirts, I can fit into (most) of these shirts!
Thanks Dad and thanks me
