So last year, I bought this jersey in a size I KNEW was not going to fit. Although it was an XL, in the cycling world, an XL is like a normal mens medium as most cyclists weigh about 140, not 200 lbs.
Fast forward to today. One month into my hard core training and I know I am down a bit of weight but not sure how much... as I never weigh myself. I go by look and feel. To tease myself, I tried on my jersey and low and behold....not only could I zip it up (which I couldn't before) but it actually fit! I even wore it to class. Very happy. One more size to go to reach my goal.
