Getting started again, 15 yrs and 100 lbs later...

Hey guys, I've only lurked here in the past, so please excuse any poor formatting, etc.

I used to play roller/street hockey very, very frequently, and ice occasionally. I stopped about 15 years ago and want to get back in the game. My biggest problem, I'm assuming, will be finding gear that fits since I'm a pretty round 5'8/280. I keep saying I'm goin to drop the weight so I can play, and I have lost 30 pounds recently, but I would rather get playing ASAP while continuing to work on thinning out.

So, most of my weight is in my lower belly/hip areas, and I have chunky thighs. Basically, I'm worried about pants fitting me correctly and getting skates that will hold me up.

Any suggestions to the fat not-exactly beginner?

Thanks!
