So these pants arrived yesterday (the pic is clickable and goes to the order page):
The size of these pants is 32X28. They are a little short. I could probably go to a bit longer inseam (29 or maybe 30), but they fit in the waist.
Look at that again: Pants with a 32″ waist (81 cm for you metric folk) fit me as of last night. I started this year wearing a 40″ waist and probably should have been wearing a 42″. That means I’m down 8-10″ (20-25 cm for you metric folk) since February (when I started getting serious about diet and exercise.
Overall, my health has seen a significant improvement. As I mentioned yesterday, in many ways I’m in the best shape (as in fitness) of my life. My blood pressure is good. My cholesterol numbers are good. And my average blood sugar (as measured by A1C) is good.
So…not bad for a guy who’s just about to turn 59.
