New Pants!

Happy Daylight Savings everybody?  We lost an hour, but we get an extra hour of sunlight in the afternoon!  Totally worth it.

I have been seriously lacking in post quantity this week.  Sorry about that.  I've had a rough week and I just put off writing.  But I'm moving onward and upward now.

Lately, my pants have gotten to the point where they are ridiculously baggy.  I was using a belt to remedy the situation but I would get frustrated when the button on the front of my pants would sag below my belt buckle.  Very awkward.  So yesterday Claire and I went shopping.

I wasn't quite sure what size I would fit into when we walked into Kohl's.  I figured I would need something around a 40.  I was wearing a pair of size 44 pants that looked ridiculous on me.  We grabbed a couple of 40x30 jeans and decided to try out a couple 38x30 (the size of pants I wore in high school).  The 40x30s were too big!  I moved from a 44 to 38 inch waist!  They're still just a touch snug around the thighs, but it's way better than the super-baggy jeans I was sporting before.

Sorry about the low light, I accidentally set the camera to manual.


  1. Looking good Tralle! I've been following your blog for awhile now, and I'm impressed by your dedication to blog so often about this journey you've embarked on! I really enjoy the posts and wish you good luck on the next 75 lbs! I'll be reading along! You've inspired me to assess my own unhealthy habits and work to change them. Thanks!

  2. Congrats man, I know I bought some recently as well and know exactly how happy and surprised you must have felt. Keep it up!

  3. Awesome and Congrats! I love fitting into smaller clothes -- I use to not care, now I do.

  4. Awesome! I remember when I dropped under size 40 (not that long ago, mind you...). What a mental barrier. Now it's so much easier to carry on. I'm loving watching you progress. You're doing some great work!

    The jeans look awesome!
