I never used to be much of a risk taker when it came to clothes and fashion.
Before, I used to dress as anonymously as possible. When I went out of the house, I simply wanted to be unassuming and tried to blend into the background as much as possible. However, it was hard to do because of my size.
That was a fun trip to the Hearst Castle in Cambria. I like looking at the pictures from that trip, just not the ones of me because, well, because I look like hell.
I ruined a lot of good pictures, such as this one with Yvie when she was a year old.
Yikes. Both of those were pretty bad. Sorry to have subjected you to that.
But that was me (shudder). And that's what I used to dress like. Most of my attire consisted of solid, preferably dark, clothing.
Things have since changed.
I'm not dressing in anything too bizarre but I am wearing a lot of things that I normally wouldn't dream of wearing. When I was big, the last thing I wanted to do was to call even more attention to myself, and some things just don't look good on bigger guys, let alone really big guys.
Since I've had to buy a whole new wardrobe over the last two years, I am constantly open to trying new things. This is my latest new purchase.
You never would have caught me wearing something like this before, and even though I'm not entirely sold on such an outfit, I feel fine in it and will feel fine wearing it out. I'm not sure though if the bottom of the white long-sleeve shirt should be folded underneath or left out like that...
I don't think I look like a runway model or anything but I feel confident in myself, in my new clothes.
So if people wonder why I run, that's why. I'm running away from the top guy and running towards the bottom one.
