I can't afford losing weight. My clothes, ones I just bought mind you, are sagging off my hips and I've had to poke at least 5 different holes in my leather belt in the last 3 months. My shirts are way to big and its starting to tick me off. I need a better paying job.

Find a Marshalls or other out-of-season discount store near you. I load up on dress clothes for $10/shirt.

What're you doing to drop the pounds?

Not to be rude,
But a belt will fix most of your problems.
Its not like you are going to lose 30+ lbs in a week. If you modify your diet and start walking every day you SHOULD lose about 2-3 lbs a week.

I just haven't been eating as much. I stopped eating Chips and drinking pop. Construction work is starting to pick up again too so I guess that could be my exersize. I never really was all that big. At the end of January I was 250lbs but I'm 6'2. Now I'm 208 with my steel toed boots on on the postal scale at work Used to have a 38 in waist but now I'm having to go out and buy 34s. I picked up a cool leather belt with holes all the way around too so hopefully I won't have to buy another one of those, lol!

If you can't afford to lose weight, then you won't be able to afford all the health problems that are coming for you if you don't.

buy a moo-moo?

WalMart sells some affordable clothes, and every store has clearance racks. I bet you could find something if you look hard enough.

Hahahaha, exactly what I would suggest.

Thrift store, consignment clothing store, check for sales at stores. I got 3 GAP shirts for under $20 on sale. I have seen nice leather jackets go for $7.50 because the casheir was an idiot and put in one too few zeros at consignment stores.
