The hubby and I got a cool new motorcycle. A 2WD Ural, which is a Soviet rig with a sidecar and a top speed of about 55 MPH. Its so fun to get out on the back roads and putter around now that the weather is warming up.
We got matching jackets on sale at a steal (a third regular price) however they are both a size smaller than what we usually wear. We have other jackets which fit more comfortably, but have decided to stuff ourselves into these when we ride as a reminder to eat well and exercise daily. After our ride yesterday evening, I did an second 45 minute workout when we got home. Seems our plan is working.
I plan on taking a "before" pic with the jacket, so I can have something to remember how tight it is once I lose twenty pounds.

    Sounds like a lot of fun and great idea to shrink yourselves into the jackets!

    Love the idea of before and after pics in the new jackets! I am jealous of you getting a motorcycle - I haven't had one in years but used to love riding it

    I'm sure that will be a good motivational tool to keep you losing. Sounds like a very nice thing for a couple to do. My sister and her hubby ride a lot in the summer especially on the Blue Ridge Pky. emoticon

    It's always a great idea to have a goal, especially if it's leather!
