    I frequent vintage and websites for designer clothes. In my new size there is an awful lot for sale. I am spoiled for choice, well over what other sizes have on offer. Seems that the small sizes often have to be sold.
    Not complaining though at times my wallet is

    Exactly. Being cold all the time, probably from having a resting heart rate that can get as low as 45 bpm. Also, raising my testosterone level from 178 to 826, not having to wear glasses anymore, having completely healthy teeth, and what seems to be a total victory over depression and social anxiety (something I suffered from since high school).

    Just sucks that it took me so long to figure this out. 37 years old, ready to start a new life...and I don't even know where to begin. A very unexpected outcome indeed.
    @sixtosounds - I can totally relate to the whole healthier/cleaner teeth! It's weird because my teeth seem whiter, shinier and feel cleaner! Weird! Can I ask - how did weight loss help you from not wearing glasses anymore?

    @GemimaFitzTed If I had to guess? Extremely low testosterone levels. Got a checkup to see if I needed new glasses, tested 20/20 for reading and distance. A very pleasant surprise

    Ah, ok. I guess that isn't an issue with women as much. My eyesight "improved" the last time I was tested for new glasses because I did the silly thing of getting my eyes tested 3 months after I had my second-born. Apparently women should wait 6 months after giving birth before getting their eyes tested. Ooops!

    I love being able to buy regular bras in a regular store. The unexpected part is that the features I used to require (like high, structured sides) are now uncomfortable. The muscles along the top of my shoulder to my neck aren’t sore all the time any more, either!
