Howie and I did a little late-night shopping Saturday night and boy-howdy, things sure have changed.
Here’s Howie in the first XL shirt he’s bought in his adult life. WAY TO GO, BABY!! He bought some 44×32 jeans, too. For anyone new to All-Things-Howie, at his heaviest, he wore a 5X and 66×30 jeans.
No, his legs haven’t grown longer since losing weight. He has a wife who finally got him to try longer jeans. 😉
Fabulous things happened for me, a former size 24-26 poster child. I grabbed three sizes of some Levi’s bootcut jeans I liked and headed to the fitting room with my other choices. Size 20’s? Much too big. Size 18’s? Still a little too big. Size 16’s? YES! I don’t think I’ve worn that size since 1990. I’m now in an 18/20 shirt, too, or an XL mens t-shirt (look out Howie, we’ll be sharing t-shirts clothes again before too long).
Happy day, happy day. I’ll be listing a bunch of our now-loose clothes on eBay the next few days. We need to fund more new clothes!
