Heck, at 2x you can almost shop anywhere
One of the things I'm most looking forward to, maybe a year from now, will be being able to go into most men's shops and having all those choices. No longer relegated to the few items i my size.
Keep up the great work!
Thanks! You can't be all that much bigger than I am--and you've been doing pretty good. I'm sure you'll be into the "regular" section soon!
At least at 3x you can find jeans and shirts at Wally World if need be. My problem is my upper chest is considerably smaller than my belly so shirts fit oddly. I still wear mostly 3x shirts but some 2x fit OK. I don't wear anything that's snug or too light in color as the old moobs look awful.
