A look back at the first month

Well it's official, I've now had the belt for exactly one month today and I'm going to give a bit of a rundown of the first month in the belt. My guess is that the first few weeks or even the first month were supposed to be the most difficult, and I can honestly say that getting used to wearing this was a breeze. I have not found it difficult to wear at all, in fact it is quite comfortable, more comfortable than it looks.

As for wearing it, it does not seem to prevent me from doing anything (except of course the one thing it's supposed to prevent, which it does an excellent job at preventing). I can run, drive, bend, stretch, go to work, go to the bathroom, sleep, not a problem. The only activity that I do that I have not tried wearing it skiing, though I probably could. The reason that I do not, is that I'm a fairly extreme skier, and it's my passion and I don't want to be inhibited doing that, so if it means I have to remove the belt, then I'm going to take it off for the day.

I didn't actually keep a good track of removal's and wearings, but I am quite sure that the belt was only off for maybe a maximum of six days, and by that I am talking 6 24 hour periods. The longest length of time that I wore it without removal was 9 days, and even at that point I could have worn it longer I believe without too much issue.

Keeping it clean is not really an issue, though I know just about all of us guys get lazy every once in a while and go a day without a shower. (Oh don't look at me like that, you KNOW you've done it.) Well, with the belt, a daily shower is mandatory, but just one a day seems to be fine. I prefer to shower in the morning, but that's my preference. Going to the bathroom isn't a problem, like I mentioned in a previous post I am very regular with having to go #2, so I haven't had to do that in a public restroom thankfully, but it would not be an issue if I did. Anyway, that's all for now. basically the first month was a snap, the belt is doing great.
