Step up, step up and see the Amazing Shrinking Actor. Can he make himself half the size and twice the man? Only time will tell.

In The Middle
Another Wednesday. And this week another milestone. As of this morning I was down exactly 60 pounds. My 65 pound goal for the 30th is well in sight and I would love to be past that. I talked a while back about how my clothes are starting to fit a bit loosely, and today I did something about it. I went to the big and tall store today and got a couple of items to tide me over, including a new belt that I desperately needed as I am on the last hole on my current one and it is the only thing keeping some of my pairs of pants up. You may be interested to know that I am down a full shirt size and between 4-6 inches in the waist. I bought everything just a bit snug, and some with a bit of stretch so that I could get a bit more usage out of them. I also got a new pair of workout shorts. I had been working out in sweatpants, which is okay while there is still a spring chill in the air, but soon it will just be too uncomfortable. Hopefully by the next time I absolutely have to get some new clothes I will be able to get some items at a standard department/retail store and have a lot more choice (and a lot less price. The lowest priced collared pullover tee shirt at the big and tall store is over $20). I know I will have to do a few more interim buys before I get to my goal, and by the time this whole thing is done I should be down almost 20 inches in the waist. I am still looking for a place to get some inexpensive alterations done. The dry cleaners across the street probably could get the job done, but I don't know that the proprietor knows enough English to follow my directions. I went by the other day to ask a question about a stain and got blank stares. I am going to do what I can for the time being, but if you see me in the next couple of months don't be surprised if I look like a hobo. If the alternative is having clothes that fit at my old weight that is a trade I will gladly accept.
