When I started losing weight over a year ago, I had several pair of size 44 jeans that fit decently. I had some 42s that were too tight. As I lost some weight, the 42s fit well, but the 44s were too loose.
About six months ago, I bought some size 40 jeans. I tried on 38s, but they were painful. The 40s were a tad tight.
Last month, I bought some new slacks and dress pants for my new job. Most are 40s, one pair are size 38. The 38s were too tight, but I bought them anyway. Today, I wore the 38s for the second time. I didn’t realize they were the 38s, because they fit perfectly. So, I guess I am officially a size 38 now.
I’m on a tight budget, and need new jeans, so I did stop at Goodwill today. There were no jeans that I wanted. I did find two old wool sweaters that will be great for riding on cold days though. I’ll probably have to spend a few dollars for new jeans that fit, so I can stop walking around in baggy jeans.
My weight has been holding pretty steady so far this week. I’ve been very careful about what I eat. I said I was off the bike for a week, and although I didn’t commute to work on the bike, I did run to the bank yesterday. I’ll probably go to the grocery store tomorrow, but those are both short trips.
The weather for next week looks like a mixed bag of frigid, rain, and snow. I plan on riding all three of the days I have to work, but I won’t if there is ice on the roads.
