I received my first "official" cycling jersey in the mail the other day; it's from a church group I joined. I've yet to be able to ride with them but hope to attend my first group ride Sept. 20th. That will be my first ride with them AND my first group ride, period!
Anyway, the largest jersey they offered was XL, which I didn't expect to fit now. But I thought it would be good incentive hanging in my closet to continue my weight loss and hoped I could wear it by the New Year.
However, when it came, and I tried it on, it fits! I was so excited to be able to take a ride wearing a "real" jersey.
Got a question though--probably a stupid one. Those pockets on the back--how much do y'all typically carry in them? I was going to put a water bottle back there but my DH said it might fall out. Are those pockets typically used for much of anything?
So far, I've lost 65 pounds with 75 more to go. The photos below are "before" (on the left) and "now." The "before" is actually when I was about 20 pounds lighter than my heaviest. I gained 20 pounds within 8 months after that photo was taken.
The second photo is of the back of the jersey. We're called "The Holy Rollers"
