    I posted on here a while back that I needed a new motorcycle jacket and trousers well I could not be doing with buying a special order jacket and the top size pants.... ( this was in December 2008)
    Yessterday my OH went back to the bike shop just to try on the jackets again.... The bloke remembered mr and his first words as I walked in was " Bloody hell youve lost weight mate! I was pleased with that no end !! especially from some hairy arsed biker type. I was suprised he remembered me from Christmas. I tried on the same style jacket to be shocked that I need a whopping 3 sizes down and then I tried the trousers and need a further 4 sizes down. :eek::eek::eek:
    I treated myself to a new set with my Christmas gift money from 2008.:D:D:D

    The funniest and most shocking realization was the guy then told me to hange on a second. He then brought out the jacket and trousers from the store room that I had tried on in December. I put them on .... Well I was bloody shocked to how huge they were on me the trousers we 9 inches too big and the jacket was I would say 8 to ten inches too big all over.:eek::eek:

    That image will stay with me for eber was the one of me standing in front of the mirror with that lot on !!!, When I knew that back in December they were tight on me !!

    All I can say is thank god for SW and to having great support from you lot... :D

    Some people I know keep a photo or a item of clothing just to remind them of the past bigger times of their life... well I have done this with my old leather jacket and I can safely say when I open my shed door and see it hanging on the hook... ih makes me want to push even harder to lose for the next week, I picture it in my mind when I am out cycling and having a steep hill to climb in front of me. !!

    That's an amazing story... even more amazing that the biker bloke remembered and decided to do that for you. That's proper camaraderie. Well done you! :D
