Well... it's been a long time coming but I'm finally squeezed into a pair of size 16 jeans (Same shop as every other pair have been from, so that there ain't any funky sizing goin on!) OK, I can't wear them, yet because theres a bit of spillage but hey I got them on and done them up!!!!! I'm hoping 2 wear them out on Friday night... arrrggghhhh... I doubt I will but I can try .... 2 more sizes to go COME ONNNNN!!!!
