Good advice so far....
my .02 cents - find a source/supplier where there is a large and good variety of equipment - different suppliers of same product are different in feel and fit. So it's important to get an idea early on how and what fits now. Shouldn't matter if it's new or used, if the weight loss continues, you have a better idea of what to transition to as you lose weight in terms of feel, fit and safety.
As an example, what I tell parents, a pair of pants size 34 made in china will fit and feel different from a pair of pants also size 34 but made in taiwan.
I still use a pair of gloves from mid 80's, I've had them re-palmed 4 times. All about comfort and fit.
