(Extra) Large And In Charge.

I'll have what she's having.

Just a small tidbit of information to post today, but I felt it worthy to highlight in my weight loss journey. It's been forever and a day since I've worn a size XL (extra large) shirt. I must have been in middle school the last time I wore one. When I was at my heaviest weight of 343 lbs. towards the end of 2012, I wore a XXXL shirt. Yeah... I was huge. Over the course of the past two years, I moved back into a XXL shirt. In the past few months, they've become increasingly big on me, though.

Today, I fit into a size XL button up shirt. It made me feel damn proud of myself.

Mind you, I don't fit into all XL shirts just yet -- it changes from maker to maker. But, I can at least wear some size XL shirts and I'm increasingly finding myself being swallowed more and more by XXL size shirts. At some point, I hope I can completely transition to the XL size and leave XXL behind.

Is this a monumental achievement? No. But, it does reflect the hard work I've invested into improving my quality of life. Plus, it makes me happy. One day, I hope to have a collection of fat clothes that can remind me of how far I've come.
