I can't believe it!

I was sitting, talking on the phone, and I thought something felt weird.

What felt weird was that i was sitting with my legs crossed...!!!!!

I can cross my legs!!! :carrot:

I looked at you weight and I thought, "She must be tall" and, hey, you are!!

Congratulations!! That's terrific--but NOT something we want to do too much of, right? at any weight!

You DO NOT want spider veins in your forties. Trust me.

Wow, that's just awesome!!! :carrot: And we're the same height so maybe I'll be able to once I get down to around your weight too! :dizzy:

Oooh, that's one of the things I can't wait to do. Yes, I know it's not good for you and yes, it's something a lot of people probably never think of as something they can't do, but for me (and a lot of us, I'm sure) it IS a big deal.

Yay! I was looking at my skinny 6 year old the other day, & not only were her legs crossed, she had the top one twisted around & tucked behind her other ankle - pretzel girl!

Too late! I'm already in my LATE forties...:D

but truth is varicose and spider veins are mostly hereditary...

I wouldn't think leg crossing would have much to do with it...

luckily, I'm not too bad with my veins.

(I got horrible varicose veins from working factory work right out of highschool. I spent 6 years working on a cement floor and even though I wasn't heavy then, it did do a ton of damage to my legs! Being out of that environment has helped repair them tremendously but I still get sore behind my knees if I strain them too much.)
