My Weight Loss Journey with Goodwill

Shopping is hard for people who don’t like the way they look, and it’s especially difficult for people who find nothing fits. That person was me. Last year I weighed 280 pounds and hated the idea of shopping for clothes that didn’t fit and wouldn’t hide my overweight body. I was wearing 44-inch waist pants and 2XL shirts. Most retail stores didn’t have my size, and the stores I could find were expensive. Still, I looked where I could and found a surprising amount of clothes that fit me at Goodwill.
