Wasted $12


#1

Bought a new belt on sale 3 or 4 weeks ago.

Ended up wasting the $12 that the new belt cost because I am now on the last (smallest) notch now :slight_smile: That and I need the belt to keep the size 32 jeans from falling down now too :slight_smile:

Weight has been staying consistent as well which I am very happy with (in other words I have stayed at 190lbs. while waist is decreasing)

Anyone else buy some new clothes that only a couple weeks later are ready for modification,garage sale or donation?

All the time, but I don’t go down sizes.

What I was thinking.

Maybe it’s a tapeworm?


#6

no need to buy a new belt, just do what I did, drill another hole.

I did the same thing to two of my belts. One of them got too big the first time I cut alot of weight, and the other one I had to modify because I was gaining and my waist grew about 3 inches.

LOL, probably not a tapeworm, I’m currently at around 3500 calories. I’ll stay at that until I hit my goal of a 12" drop right now. (44" coat, 32" suit pants).

On the plus side large t-shirts are getting too small, but those are stretchier than leather.

Nothing screams hip like a $12.00 belt.

Clothing fail.

It could be for a blue collar job. Sucks it doesn’t fit though.

Nothing screams gay like a man criticizing another man’s wardrobe.

Hetero fail.
