I had to make a new hole in my belt !

When spring arrived this year, it was time to get rid of all my fat clothes. So I cleaned out my closet. So long baggy this and that. I'm into tapered custom fit clothes now Smile

I went out an spent a small fortune on a new wardrobe with lots of designer stuff. After all the hard work I put into getting fit and healthy I felt I deserved to look as good as I felt. That was the first time I ever had fun buying new clothes.

I thought the new pants with a 30" waist would be all I needed. I bought a belt to fit. As the year went on I continued to loose more weight. Now my pants are getting a tad loose and my belt wasn't holding them up like it's supposed to. I had to poke a new hole in my belt to keep my pants up where they are supposed to be. I love it !!! For most of my life I was using the belt holes in the other direction as I got fatter and fatter. Making new holes is much better.

I't will be 2 years this January that I started my jouney to better health and I'm keeping the weight off and just getting healthier and more physically fit as time goes by. I feel great. What a good day this is.

Congratulations on both the new clothes and having kept the weight off! It's a great feeling to get rid of the clothes that are too big. Now you just have to buy yourself a belt that fits. Smile If you haven't already you might want to think about writing a success story, it would be inspirational to those starting their journey to see that it can be done.

Hey - I have been working just under 1.5 years, and we are at about the same place. It is so wonderful to fold jeans and put them away, only to have my daughter say 'mom, these are your jeans, not mine!'

I got rid of most of my big clothes but I kept 1 pair of jeans at each size. I am going to make a poster of me holding each pair, as they get smaller and smaller. Just so that I can see and celebrate all the hard work I've done.

It is so good to meet someone else who has reached the same level I have. So many just quit - maybe we should start a group Very Happy
As long as you try, and try again, you will never fail. You never lose. The only way to truly fail is to quit.

Why can't I loose weight faster
The above answers are quite right. However, for me, the answer is that it is just damn hard to lose weight. The answer lies in large quantities of Time, Patience, and Honesty. I bet you have them, good ...

Heart Rate Monitor Watches for Men
I have a polar RCX5. Very expensive but works great. Espcially for helping you train in fat burning mode and for estimating calories burnt. You need a chest strap though. Great gift idea.
