    I have been thinking over the past few weeks, that I can't seem to reach the clutch pedal properly, I have to stretch my toes right out to get it to the floor. But as I haven't adjusted my seat, I didn't really think that much of it. This weekend I was really struggling to get the clutch down properly and couldn't figure out what was going on. Then I realised, I have lost weight... there's less butt behind me to push me forward in the seat! LOL!!! I have shrunk so much that I can no longer reach the pedals in my car! I had to move my seat forward to accommodate my shrinkage! Hooray!!! :D

    LOL! That's fab!!You'll be needing a cushion to reach the pedals before too long :)

    I have gone down shoe sizes too. I was a 7 at one point. Now I'm a 6. I even bought 5½ in M&S just before Christmas!

    I'm a shorty too and have my seat on top of the wheel :) when I was at my biggest I actually had to buy a peugeot instead of a punto I was looking at as the punto's steering wheel was too far forward to let me get in :eek: it's really bad the things that we've resigned ourselves to as part of being big, I wanted to die of embarassment in front of the salesman, pretending I just wasn't keen on fiat's when he could totally see what the issue was and it certainly wasn't the brand.
    I used to hate going to Blackpool Pleasure Beach and not being able to go on any of the older rides because the full length turnstiles were to tight!
