Spring Cleaning!

So yesterday I went through a bunch of my clothes and got ride of the ones that are way to big on me. What an amazing feeling! Most of the clothes were new also! You see when a big person shops for clothes its quite a mission, well at least for me it is. For example I used to only like a certain brand and style of pants because they fit me the best. So I knew that in the winter Big & Tall would have plenty of sizes and colors to choose from. But I also knew in the spring and summer the choices would dwindle. So I basically would buy a surplus of pants to makes sure I always had new ones if I needed them! I mean what would I do if it was in the middle of the summer and I needed new work pants and couldn't find my size?? I would be screwed!!! So instead of putting in myself in that position I prepared myself for the worse case scenario and just stocked up. So yesterday I ended up getting rid of a huge stack of new pants with the tags still on them!!! Kinda sucked but not really :)

Also another example of the hassles of clothing an overweight person. I used to buy these polo shirts because I loved the material and they fit me decently. One day while in the store I asked the lady who worked at casual male when they were getting some more in stock because they only had a few left. She informed me that they were discontinuing the item and would not be getting any more! My jaw dropped and panic set in! What the hell am I going to wear to work??? I tried on other shirts and brands but they looked like crap and had that cheap thin polyester feeling type material. So what did I do?? I bought all the ones she had left! Even if they were small on me I bought them because I knew I was planning to lose weight. I then drove to other store locations and bought them out! Sounds crazy huh? It was a pain in the ass but I didn't have any other options!

I cant wait until the day when I can walk into any store and buy any type of clothes I want. Soon Soon!!!!
