GettingHeavierFL has said some nice things
Talking So thrilled right now!

I just went clothes shopping and found out my waist size has gone from 40 to 44.

I was expecting it to be 42, but didn't think it was 44!

That means I am officially out of the "normal" section of the stores and have to look in the "Big" section now!

I am so absolutely happy right now!!

While I was looking the big section, I noticed the store I was at goes up to Size 56 -- what a rush that will be when I'm looking over there some day!

I can relate. I felt the same way as I got heavier. I remember looking at the sizing chart at a Big and Tall Men's store when I was 1 XL and thinking what it would be like when I got to 3 XL or more. Well I am now there at 305 lbs. and wearing a size 54 pant and 56 jacket. I never thought I would enjoy getting fat, but I do and I find it is a turn-on as well.

Pant sizes seem a little weird here. I measure 48 inches (standing) around the waist yet I wear an off the peg 42 pant and they fit around me fine....I even need a belt to keep them up! Anyone else notice this?

Same with me. I measure 60" around the fullest part of my waist but comfortably wear a size 54 pant. So your experience is not unusual.

I've noticed this as well and it changes from brand to brand and style to style. My waist measures 46 inches and I can still fit into my size 38 waist jeans. Size 40 is much more comfortable though. Companies are into vanity sizing these days. If our clothes were really the size on the tag none of us would fit into them, lol.

I hear you guys. It was such a great day when I realized that I had to shop at the big man store. I am a 44 waist in my slacks and those are very snug on me. With a belt they feel like they keep my big belly in line. My button down shirts are a little bigger on me and I look massive in them.
