    Has anyone noticed any other body changes, apart from shrinking after following SW?

    I ask because tonight for the first time in an age, I have painted my nails as they are strong, long(ish) and healthy. For a long time they have been brittle and splitting constantly, but even with gardening etc they are suddenly - wow!

    My hair too (although admittedly now with added grey for interest) is softer, thicker and doesn't seem to be falling out as much!

    All very welcome and positive changes, but a little unexpected!

    Any one else?

    I'm always cold :confused: Before SW I was always the person in the house who was warm but now I'm the one who has to put the heating on or grab a pullover.

    I am colder too, the heat isnt so much of an issue anymore.
    Also going to have to get my wedding ring resized as I can easily flick it off. My nails were ok but have since started to peel again, not sure why. My skin is clearer with less spots! woooooo!

    The main thing I noticed was my skin becoming a lot clearer.

    Agree with the majority of these, especially the bum comment snuggle, my butt hurts so much sometimes Lol. Ive suffered with IBS for years, to the point where I had to plan my journeys in case of emergencies etc. Now its great, I do still have the odd bout of it badly, but thats just how I will be, but apart from that its great I dont have to worry much anymore :) xx

    I noticed that my skin is a lot clearer and my face looks 'fresh', and even though my *week fell in the first week of me doing sw, I didn't get any spots (which I have been getting since my teens) so it must start working from the first week :D

    I have to say that i am the opposite with spots!! Although my skin is a lot softer everywhere (esp my legs!!) i have never suffered with spots before and now i have them all the time!!

    I also agree with the shoes sizes I've gone from an 8 to a 6/7!! xx

    I'm loving being able to wear high heels for longer... rather than feeling like a pig on pins!

    My skin has been really good too, havent had a spot in ages *touch wood*

    I've noticed that I am definitely sitting lower in seats as the padding on my bum isnt as great as it was.

    When I am in the car I can no longer see in the rear mirror to see whats behind me without adjusting it from what hubby has, this never used to be a problem :D:D

    My nails, since starting to eat a decent amount of protein (before SW they improved a little, now since SW they are hard and grow to a decent length without snapping or flapping in the wind like paper.

    I've noticed my skin is a lot drier since starting SW too. Maybe as less fats in the diet?

    I also suffered from IBS for a few years and the increase in fibre from SW has meant I feel so much better. I used to suffer terribly in the afternoons and evenings with bloatedness and tummy pains

    ... trouble is it has also made me much windier... :eek:
