So, my newest interest in the AB/DL world is the new ABU Lavender. I love the scent of lavender, as I get anything diaper-related to that smell anyway (powder, wipes, cream, etc.)...But the problem, as many of us have, is the issue of sizing. I am around a 36 inch waist, 200 lbs (~91kg), and at 6 ft tall, it's becoming increasingly difficult to fit into my medium sized diapers that I stocked up on before the winter.
I recently got a sample of a large SDK v2. It fit, albeit slightly loose and when I tested the capacity lying down, it ended up leaking a bit.
So I'm at a crossroads (and I think I know what I have to do already)...should I get the ABU Lavenders in medium and start losing weight until they are comfortable, or large and then have a fear of leaking at any given moment? I'm leaning towards the losing weight side, as I'm pudgy as it is and I would like to see myself at a healthy 175.
I used to be nearly 150 about a year ago, and I was certainly slender, but I looked gaunt, as I was vaping a lot (curbing my appetite) and not sleeping too much, mild depression, anxiety, etc...but once I met my girlfriend last year, who got me out of the rut I was in, she helped me quit nicotine and another (controlled) substance, I started eating more, eating more regularly, and feeling healthier.
But then I went a little overboard, got lethargic, ate a bit too much, and now I'm a little husky, particularly in the belly, butt, and thigh regions. I think it's time I started running, doing push ups, sit ups, pull ups, all that jazz, to finally get to the healthy weight I should be. I think a pack of medium Lavenders would be just the motivation I would need; once a week, I'll pull one out, and for 10 weeks, I'll see them fit more and more easily as I slide right into the body size I like.
Only thing is, I don't even know where to start :S...does anyone have any thoughts on this (rather) spontaneous decision?
