Omg this is what I always say is my goal for losing weight...to myself though... I have never been able to cross my legs and I always just lie and say it's because I think its stupid...but the truth is I cant... I really cant... I maybe can for about 10 seconds but it is soooo uncomfortable... I cant wait

I'm still not over the thrill of crossing my legs, and I've been able to for some time now. Heh. It's actually *more* comfortable for me to sit with them crossed than it is uncrossed.

Great NSV, great feeling! Every time I cross my legs, not that I do it a lot, it gives me a thrill.

What always intrigues me is that I don't spend months checking to see whether I can cross my legs or not, just one day, suddenly, I can do it.

Good on you!

Not insane. Any overweight person who has lost enough weight to do that knows exactly what you're feeling! Congratulations. I hope to be there soon!

Not crazy at all, but wonderful!

I'd add that I look forward to being able to sit cross legged on the floor again without both legs and feet going to sleep.

Isn't it a wonderful feeling. I love crossing my legs without making a production out of it--just cross them without having to grab and pull on my ankle.

It just makes you feel so small to sit with your legs crossed, doesn't it.

I've seen 300 lb people cross their legs, they were very top heavy. I'm the opposite, I don't have a gut but I have very thick thighs. I'm not sure when I'll be able to cross my legs but it isn't any time soon, that's for sure.
