I’m sure what I am about to write some of you have gone through or are going through. I started UNB over 4 years ago. It was a project to do while I was laid off. where I could write about one of my passions, underwear! UNB also gave me a creative outlet for my pent up energy. Little did I know 4 years later it would still be going on stronger then ever.

You maybe asking how did I get my love back? Well, over the last three years I gained weight and was only able to wear XL undies. My waist went to a 42 inches. It was not fun to get all the great undies we review and have to pass it up. I kept saying that one day I’ll be back into a Large/size 36. However, that’s all it was, just thinking. I never did anything to achieve this goal. Then one day I went to the doctor and they weighed me and I was just over the 300 pound mark. Yes, I said 300. I was shocked, never in my life had I ever weighted that much.

I’ve heard experts say that you have to reach a point in your life where it comes clear you must loose weight. This was my tipping point last June. I got an app for my phone called My Plate and put in what I wanted to loose a week, I went form over 4,000 calories a day to 2,000. I cut out candy, most fried food (i had my first order of French fries last month after months), sodas and more. I started to pay attention to what I ate and other then the holidays I have been successful. I have lost around 70 pounds and have gone from a 42 to a 36 inch waist.

This also affects my undies drawer. A lot of my favorites no longer fit. I have a lot of N2N, Cocksox and Unico that are now too big. This is a good thing as well. I can now fit in undies you regularly see on this blog. The first pair I wore was a Pikante camo brief. It felt great. The day this happened it opened my eyes that now I can try all the brands we write about on the blog. Those brands include, Baskit, Timoteo, Gigo, Clever, Candyman, Pikante, PPU, Andrew Christian and the list goes on and on.

The mission of this blog is to spread the word all men, no matter what size, sexual orientation or race should wear undies and feel comfortable and sexy. For the longest time I didn’t feel sexy or comfortable. I would be upset I never got to try the undies I report on.

Now those days are gone and I”m experimenting with undies we get in and buying the ones I see. It’s like I’m in my teens again buying my first pair of bikinis all over again. I hope you guys will see a renewed passion on the blog.

I would love to hear from you guys if you have been through weight loss and how you found some great undies you couldn’t wear before. I plan on joining a gym this next month and gain muscle and loose even more!
