    Lost A Little Weight. Needed New Gun Belt

    I needed a new gun belt. My Bigfoot is at the last buckle hole and my pants and firearm are traveling SOUTH. I went a different rout. This time I ordered a Nylon Gun belt , The Foundation Belt by Langdon Tactical Technologies (Earnest Langdon's group). The nelt was very reasonable ( Under $50). It is much lighter then my Bigfoot is, but gives excellent retention for my G17. It is also designed specifically for AIWB ( My Preferred carry position). I looked at it, at first and thought this really going to support my Full Size Glock? Yes it does. The Velcro is extremity tough. It holds the Firearm in my PHLster holster perfectly.Langdon Tactical Foundation EDC Belt(a)-a.jpg Langdon Tactical Foundation EDC Belt(b)a.jpg
    I really like it and recommend it !

    I have had a couple belts with Velcro closures. The main problem with them is that both sides of the Velcro get filled up with lint and small threads and they are a real pain to try to clean off. This process takes a while to happen, but happen it does.

    OH __ Big time congratulations, @Kennydale , on your ongoing weight loss process. Keep up the good work.

    Congrats, man. Any weight loss is a good thing. I had to order a new Amish gun belt lately, and by the time it arrived, I needed a smaller size! I'm down to the last hole already.

    I am going to get serious about this ( Weight Loss) I am getting a referral from my PCP. To have Teleconferencing with a Dietitian. I understand this is covered by my insurance as Preventative Medicine. I hope to change some of my eating habits.

    Pants and gun sliding south is a good problem to have. I don't mind buying new clothes and accessories going in the direction you are. It's going in the other direction that is depressing! I just ordered some new long pants and shorts that are one size smaller in the waist. That was enjoyable.

    I was at 325 this time last year. I hit 245 this morning. Keto diet. I cut out the carbs and sugars as much as I reasonably could--nothing white except cauliflower, near zero fruit (sugar), only an occasional beer and cut back on whisky, careful with high-carb veggies, etc. Not a hard-over fanatic, I cheat on occasion but hop right back on the wagon. Still gotta enjoy life, you know?

    I hit a few plateaus along the way, but you've got to hang in there and wait it out. All this with no real increase in physical activity. Knees and back limit that, but hopefully new knees will allow an increase. My target is 180, not the 165 the charts recommend as my ideal weight. That fine for a 20-year-old kid, but not realistic for me.

    I lost 13 pounds when I had the intestinal problem for 4 months, but am losing more now and don't know why. The good thing is that I'm again wearing the good gun belts that I outgrew, whereas the two new ones are barely/sort of OK on the last hole with a LONG tail sticking out the back, but only if I t have a thick shirt to tuck into my pants.

    The bad thing is that I gave away all of the nice jeans that I couldn't get into anymore.......and which now would fit perfectly. I can't ask the woman to give them back! A few pairs of my paints are "tween sizes" and they don't look too sloppy on me. The brand new jeans I bought 6 months ago would fall off if I tried to wear them now.

    I really wish the weight loss would stop, though because I really do NOT WANT TO GO THROUGH 27+ lab tests, and all the other stuff they might do to try to find out why I keep losing!

    This is a new thing for this old lady. I spent most of my life gaining weight and going on diets and then gaining weight, etc. etc. Until 12 years ago when I finally got a food plan that was right for my own body and then I lost a bunch and was pretty stable.......until this 2019 mess.

    30 for me so far, 15 more to go. That will put me at my goal of 23.5 BMI.
