Today when I had to go to WalMart I decided that I needed a new t-shirt or two. I don’t know about others, but at my largest I was shopping in the men’s section for my shirts. I’d usually get some quirky or amusing shirt with a cartoon character on it or a phrase, likely just to distract myself from the fact that I was wearing guy clothes.

As I am looking I come across a clearance section of t-shirts for three dollars. I am browsing through these and I find some size XL (16-18) sizes and I get two of those and a size twenty. I didn’t think the XL’s would fit but I figured that I would fit into them soon enough and they were only three bucks. So, those came home with me.

I get home and I try them on…

They fit! The size XL (16-18) shirts fit! I can’t even remember ever being able to wear a size 16-18 shirt. Granted, those size 18 jeans are about twenty to thirty pounds away in my future, but apparently my top half is living the slimmer life and waiting for the bottom half to get with the program! Those shirts, look awesome on me by the way!

This happened at a good time too. I wasn’t feeling very motivated when I woke up this morning and I had just about talked myself out of getting on my treadmill today but after being able to wear those shirts I feel like it’s worth it again.
