Help me. I’m facing a dilemma. For the past several months (perhaps longer) my clothes haven’t been fitting so well. For the most part I’m talking about my pants. Tight around the waist type not fitting. Kinda, you;re getting fat, not fitting. Know what I mean?
It’s my work gear that’s the real problem. I wear business dress and my (previously) loose pants have been getting more and more uncomfortable. The belt’s on it’s last notch and the tops of my pants sorta fold over and I have to suck in my belly to do them up. That’s not right… right?
I’ve steadfastly refused to change up a size because (to a 36 inch) firstly because I’m on a program to reduce my waist and secondly, I’ve never been that size for more than a week or two in the past 10 years. So it’s NOT MY SIZE.
Well after this months weigh in I actually increased my waist by 0.5 cms while losing 1kg of fat and increasing size and muscle by 3kg’s. This has meant that now my shirts aren’t fitting either. Normally slim fitting they’re now 8hrs of torture and serve as a constant reminder…. “that you’ve let yourself go”.
So what to do? Do I succumb to comfort and upsize (even if temporary) or suffer through this and use them as a reminder of why I need to exercise more and eat less?
