Goodonyer mate, never doubted you'd make it. Quite a few weeks ahead of the schedule too.

+1 on the pics. :wink:

Is he related to Dolce and cabana? Well done Missy. Oh, and see, it must be the running you're doing. :lol:

No, possibly related to Ralph Lauren, or Alana Hill, or maybe even Marc Jacobs but I was in David Jones today with my friend Lisa.... SALES... we went around finding all the really UGLY Designer clothes that are ohhhhhh ssoooooooo chic and tried them on!!!! It was a hoot!!!!

I gotta make a trip down to Tassie in August... gotta loose more weight, I need to show some people just how awesome I am.

Oh and its definately not the cycling thats making me loose weight, the running and swimming are key.

Thanks Justin

Good on ya Ro! You know... if those Calvin Kleins become too big for ya, you know who you can send them to 8)

I went from a 36 inch waist line at 12, down to a 30 inch at early 15, and now back up to a 36 at 16 :P

Please keep your amazing looking arse away from public roads while I'm riding. That kind of distraction could be fatal.

I remember size 14...occurred sometime when I was about 13 I think!! Congrats Missy - good effort of your achievement. I'm proud to be in your electronic presence :D


I'm slightly jealous. I want to lose 5-10kg and that might see me in a 14-16 depending on brand (so in CK's probably a 20!!). I am only slightly jealous as I am a realist too :wink:

So I better put a warning on your post to make sure everyone keeps it real...

Please don't try this at home if fitting into a pair of CK14 jeans is unrealistic...and no, if you need to use butter to help get them up you shouldn't be wearing them!!

Hint: buy US made (or should I say "made for the US market") jeans. US sizing is 2 smaller than Aus, so a size 16 in Aus is size 14 in the US 8)

The other great thing about US jeans is they come in different lengths, so no need to pay someone to alter them to make them shorter.

Managed to fit into my size 10 Levis jeans on the weekend that I bought ten years ago. 8) They are the loose fitting style (551 I think) though.

Now, my quest is to find the super tight Levis 512 size 10 that I bought when I was in my early 20s. They fitted me for ... oh ... maybe 6 months ... before I bulged out.
