I did dig out some old Gap chinos from my closet and they fit incredibly well for about three weeks until squats happened again.
Same thing happens to me... but I do spend quite some money on clothes. I have gone two sizes up in pants and trousers not because of the waist but glutes and legs... and in the last year I have gone up one size in jackets, shirts... I don't know if I should just stop what I am doing or buy a bunch of new clothes... When I started packing all the clothes that don't fit me anymore I realised how much money I spend on this... there were so many huge bags filled with clothes... and still I have not given everything away...
I may have to start thinking about going to a shrink or something LOL
About giving advice co-workers, I understand what most of you say... I don't say anything at work anymore because when asked everyone tends to ignore the facts and start trying to refute anything I say (I gess people don't like to hear they should not eat tons of processed sugar or greasy food)... I'd rather keep my mouth shut than keep discussing that subject with people who stand firmly in their position and they don't want to be convinced they are in the wrong... It amazes me that they really believe what they read in magazines about 20 minutes of walking everyday will make up for all the sh*t they eat/drink. They consider themselves "active" people (fitness wise) because of those 20 minutes.
And of course we have those who think that people who work out regularly and shows are obssesed and not in their right mind... just because we follow a routine/calendar and try to stick to it and not avoid the gym anytime we are presented with another alternative.
Sorry for the rant... xD
I guess it is nice to know that there are more people in the same boat as I am sometimes.
