Good news, & Bad news

I have lost about 30 pounds over the last few months, through no diet plan, or other intention of my own?
Just too much stress in my life, and I don't eat like I used too.

I went from a size 38 jean to a 36 in the last few months, and now they are too big.

This can't be good if the last time you wore size 34 was in 1964!! :eek:

My old homemade suede lined gun belt fits me again!! :D

I was just about to cut it in half and add a brass double D-Ring in the middle to lengthen it about a year ago!!!

No longer necessary, as it fits me now in the same hole it did when I made it 30 years ago.

Belt is shown with homemade Threepersons holster & S&W .44 Special 1950 Target with homemade walnut grips, along with three speed-loader pouches.

The belt is also used with a El Paso Threepersons holster for a 4 3/4" Colt SAA and cartridge belt slides.

Hang in there pard, maybe go see a doctor. I could lose about 30 lbs too, but not that fast....If you were closer I'd have you over for fried chicken, smashed taters and gravy.

Sudden weight gain/loss is worth mentioning to your doctor.

That's some nice leather!

When I lost weight, I just carried a bigger gun IWB - problem solved!

Good lookin' leather.

As already said, sudden weight loss with no effort on your part is something to be very concerned about. Go see your doctor.

The medic part of me agrees, make an appointment with your physician. Stress related dietary changes can and do happen, buuuut, there are other, more serious causes of sudden unexplained weight loss.

Get your stress handled, if nothing else than just to make life more enjoyable.

Ditto...see a Doctor before you see the mortician. Your body is telling you that something is very, very wrong.

And that is a nice bar-be-que rig.

Good looking leather. My son [a Dr.] lost weight like you and he now is diabetic so get your self checked and keep making holsters.

RC, I hope what you're hearing here is how much us readers appreciate your presence on THR and how much we would miss you if something bad happened. So take care of yourself! And great looking rigs!

Great looking rig rc.
Now, go to Wheatfields in Lawrence and have a full order of the biscuits and gravy . (OK, maybe the half order..) After that get a Dr's appointment set up and get checked out.

Ditto with what everyone else is saying. Nice looking leather. You are an asset to the site and me being in the medical field I would have to urge you to call up the doc also even though we men don't like to do such things :p

I agree with others... go see your doc.

Good looking leather rc, go see the doctor not knowing why isn't always a good thing.
