    What are the little things that you've noticed that you can do now, that you couldn't do before you started CD?

    For me

    I can tie my own shoelaces without getting red in the face and out of puff

    I can cross my legs

    I can walk into town without having to sit down half way there

    I can fit in a seat (one of those attached to a table) with room to spare

    My son can get his arms round me when he's hugging me and they meet in the middle

    I don't wear elasticated waists anymore

    I'm a smaller size than my Mum :D

    I've never wanted to wear jeans before because my legs were big, but now I fit in some 12's or 14's depending on the shop. I also walk a lot more than ever before, I take the stairs instead of the lift when I can and I wore a bikini from Primark (size 14) when I went on holiday to Florida and did not feel conspicuous. Just got to stay this way now

    This morning I noticed that my towel goes all the way around me without the peek a boo.
