On a serious note, how do you guys approach dressing during stages of body transition?
To give you some context, I started this year at 92.3kg and am now something like 83-84kgs and will likely shed more weight in the coming months. Naturally, this has impacted on my measurements. Right now, most of my clothes hang. Luckily, in an ad agency I can wear t-shirts and chinos everyday and it doesn't matter. But, on the odd occasion I do have to wear more classic menswear, most of my clothes are a bit too big. Thoughts?

Ive got same issue.. Having fun buying new clothes. Got patch to remeasure me and got new suit enroute and i had to go get some new smaller jeans.

Always feel sub par in myold clothes that were made for someone 6kg heavier

The classic is the Jiffy steamer, and you can get hand-held and upright versions. I like the upright myself as I find iit easier to use. The downside is it does take up a fair bit of room.
My main use of them is to steam suits to get the wrinkles out - especially the unsightly wrinkles in the pants. Works brilliantly. Also good to get wrinkles out of ties, linen shirts etc.
I replaced my Jiffy because the water valve got lost, rendering it inoperable. I found a pretty good Tefal upright in Good Guys for $170, whiich will hopefully do the job.

Thanks for the feedback.

Any other garment steamer suggestions?

Nice one man, looking forward to seeing the new suit.

I'm waiting a while. Thankfully, summer's around the corner so waiting isn't much of an issue smile.gif

Dont go too crazy mate, you just had a baby! I think all my mates that have had kids put on at least 5kgs in the first year.

My wife just got one of those wanky bugaboo prams which I can use to take our little one on the way for a run after 6 months. I'm determined to at least stay the same weight I am now.

Diet to get to the size you want and train to get to the shape you want. If you don't want to add the fat then watch how much you eat. If you can't go for a run, at least you can control how much food goes in your mouth.

That's my problem Gez, I really love food and don't really ever diet anymore. 15 years of competitive triathlon and cycling and the strict diet that went with it means I can't be arsed anymore, I just exercise more to accommodate it. I'm still only 81kg which is not bad at 6"2 really. I focus on just eating a good whole diet, getting plenty of exercise, lots of water, a few glasses of red and a few beers when I feel like it.

That's the thing though, Jas, In situations where you can't do any of that activity to compensate, the only thing you can control is how much you eat.

Forget the pram get one of those strap on baby packs and hit the road. I had a 'kapoochie' and used it a lot in the first couple of months just walking around with the boy while the wife tried to catch up on sleep.

The best part of this is that the progression mechanism is already inbuilt. Keep training like that with the kid everyday for 10 years - the weight increases from day to day but not enough so you notice biggrin.gif

Yeah my best mate said to do that too, and it's good bonding time with the baby for dads.
