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!!

Yeah that's the thing, to go from 22 to 14... you gotta work damn hard!

CT.. Screw Australian sizing... nothings made here anyway! GO THE USA!!!!!!!!

OK, I finally found my 20+ year old Levis 512 "slim fit tapered leg" jeans. Tried them on, and to my great surprise they fit!!!

Well, fairly tight around the calves (I attribute it to muscles from cycling 8) ), but pretty good around the waist and hips.

Now, to find the supertight pair of stretch pink jeans I bought when I was 16. Even my mum commented I looked like a sausage when I wore them back then!
