Last year I've bought my skates online, and yes that was not my brightest moment. Since april last year, I've gained a whopping 44 pounds (20 kilo ) due to a severe backinjury and by quitting smoking A couple of weeks ago, I had the chance to lace up my CCM Vector 06's width E for the first time since the injury. To my surprise they didn't fit anymore. It looks and feels like my feet turned wider, because 44 pounds ago, they did bother me, but not nearly as much as they do now. After 3 weeks of agony, I'm thinking about buying new skates. My skates are a little bit to big lengthwise, not bigger than the width of my fingertip Does this make any sense, because my English is really rusty at the moment Anyways, should I buy new skates or should I wait ? I'm currently doing a lot of cardio and weight training to get rid of the fatsuit. Within 3 months I'll certainly lose at least 22 pounds.
