the down side to crossfit and paleo

Well after a few months of crossfit and paleo I went from a 40 inch waist to a 32 in waist. When I was a 40 I could always find clothes I liked with no issue.
I had to buy pants the other day and could not find anything until I went to the 'young mens' section of the store. Now here I am about to turn 35, and I am stuck dressing like my 15 year old

Try finding a 40 with a 36 inseam off the rack. I always have to order my jeans. It's quite annoying. They only seem to go up to a 34 at most stores. Heck at some stores they only go up to a 32! Because I guess if you're fat you must be short.

Re: the down side to crossfit and paleo

I wear 34 inch pants , but I have to get the 40's for my legs to fit. I wish I could wear the stuff in young mens. I tried on an extra large perry ellis linen short sleeve shirt and I almost hulked the thing.

Re: the down side to crossfit and paleo

I seriously don't know what model they use for off the rack clothes because everything I wear needs to be tailored, practically. Also, I freaking hate all the ruffly flowy stuff that's all over the place right now. Hello, I do not want to look pregnant. Thanks.

THANK YOU.
And Good God where have women's asses gone?? And hips? Low rise jeans on me mean that half my *** is hanging out. Mid rise jeans don't fit right.

And I hate ruffles.

This made me laugh. I was just complaining to a friend that every top/sweater out now has some stupid ruffle thing attached to it at the collar or the sleeve or the placket or everywhere. Ruffles can be cute when you are four.
Ruffles with the shirred thing in the front making you look pregnant are the worst.

We're just living in the wrong decade.

I just wish women would realize how much better they look in simple lines and quality clothes.

And damn I love stretch skinny jeans.

I was trying on jeans this past weekend and the sales girl (bless her heart) brought me a pair of low rise. Without realizing that they were low rise, I began attampting to put them on. She asked "How are they working?" I replied, "It ain't all gonna fit inside..."
