    Diet Time!

    That Thanksgiving through Christmas Holiday stretch also stretched my waistline a bit. I carry a M&P Shield in a IWB hybrid. The other day I had to suck my gut in so hard to get the holster in my pants I thought I would pop a button when I let it back out. I've got a holster on the way for my G17, but I think I'm going to have to drop a few pounds before I can get that bigger gun inside my beltline.

    Anybody else balloon up over the holidays and finding inside carry harder to do?

    I figure I'm at least 3-4 months from getting my permit. Am hoping with a little help from Jillian Michaels that there will be enough space between me and my pants for a holster and my sig p238 by then!

    Good luck!

    Funny you mention this. The winter time is hard on me too. My diet doesnt change nor does my beer drinkin. I've added 10+ lbs since the holidays and I have always wore about an inch bigger waist size jeans during the winter. This year I may have to go 2". As soon as spring gets here, I'm out in the yard/garden and playing golf 3 time a week. Back to summer sizes.

    I did not gain any weight, but I do measure my intake of food or my exercise routine based on how tight my pants are when I carry.

    It's funny that I've known several people who were inspired to lose weight to accommodate their carry rig.

    Don't hate me but I am down 8 pound since the beginning of November and 21 overall in the past year. I do cardio at least 4 times a week, and follow weight watchers for men online. Eating right totally sucks most of the time but the alternative is not something I want to go back to. Stick with a plan and you will see results.

    Exercise is important, but Jillian Michaels makes me want to curl into the fetal position.

    As of this morning I am 59.5 pounds down from where I was this time last year. Changed my entire food lifestyle and exercise some.

    I am 222, up from 210-215. Life can suck. Fortunately, I am blessed with a body that sheds it quick.

    My wife hates me for that.

    I recommend that you guys try out CrossFit. It will get you in shape quickly and it is a great training regiment to be physically and mentally prepared for any self-defense/SHTF situation. I have been training CrossFit for the past 12 months and I am in the best shape of my life.

    I dropped 35 pounds before I started carrying. All my pants are too big in the waist so there is plenty of room for the pistol.

    Same weight, but I sense more fat and less muscle on me. I'm a just little over two years from staring 50 in the face, and realize that it's going to take a concerted effort to stay in shape from here on out.

    Last week I started back to a modified routine of what I used to do back when I was a muscle-head. 'Still doing free weights, but far lighter, more reps and two days off between three-day routines of 2-3 muscle groups per routine. I'm so sore, it hurts to type right now.
