Clothes are hard for a guy at 400lbs. At 34 years old you still want to look 28. I have been shopping at the big and tall store since pretty much just out of college. I shopped Eddie Bauer catalog for a very long time but their style did not stay with me. I cannot explain to you how happy I was when just before last weekend I go into a size 46 jeans. Now I know to some of you out there you are thinking 46 is huge, but that is down from a very comfy 50 just back in January. Not to mention (and I may have) that these are relax fit jeans not loose fit jeans. It just feels so good to start to wear some "cool" clothes. Everything is fitting better and differently.
How different? Oddly shirts are getting longer. I figure 2 things have happened here. The first is that I have stopped stretching my shirts to make room for my gut, the second it that I must have lost some weight in my shoulders, chest and upper back. A guy on the Guys on a Diet board on WW mentioned that you lose from your head down. Not sure that is true, but it kinda makes sense.
On to other things that fir funny. My shoes that were very comfortable before are now loose. I guess less swelling or something. I don't know, this one has me stumped.
So has anyone else run into these issues.
