Measure of a Man
Ah...but a belt...that's a good one. I wear a belt every day. Not so much as a fashion accessory but to avoid the public faux pas of having my pants drop to my ankles and revealing my plaid drawers to a cruel and mocking world. The thing with belts is that, as you lose or gain weight, you go up or down a notch. The belt I'm showing was bought last August when I started this fitness thing. At that time, I used the first notch. Then I slipped to the second, the third, all the way down to the fifth. About a month ago, I took a nail and made a sixth notch. And still my pants were in danger of sliding down if I took a deep breath or walked too quickly.
So I went out and bought a new belt. Not as dramatic as holding up a pair of giant trousers...but it is significant to me.
Shows progress. Shows change.Shows yet another reason why I don't use suspenders
