Lost 45 pounds...not so good?

Nothing wrong with losing the pounds, my doctor might let me live! BUT all the new riding gear I bought last year? Fits like a tent now. I threw down for a Olympia Switchback mesh jacket and I went to cinch it up with the take up snaps only to find they are already at the last snap. The pants I bought make me look like Charlie Chaplin! I hate to sell or give them away as soon as I do I'll end up putting a few pounds back on and have to buy the same things and size again. Now I know why the SO has her fat, normal and skinny clothes around!

On the plus side my older Fieldsheer jackets fit better but still need to be replaced as they are worn.

Another down side, I found the bike riding like crap, very harsh so I'm back to tweaking on the suspension.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Get rid of all your fat clothes and vow to never buy them again. When I clothes get snug I know it is time to cut back. Sometimes those 34" pants are tight and sometimes I need a belt to keep them up, but I refuse to buy any other size. LOL!

Further more, that 45# got you more year of riding, so buy a new kit, it will be with you longer than you anticipated ...
