My feet got smaller as well. That has been hard to wear shoes I had previously worn.

I was also surprised to find that feet lose weight! I had bought a pair of cute slip on shoes when I was at my heaviest that were super tight, I forgot to return them and rediscovered them 20 pounds later and they fit perfectly!

Not really "weird", but I thought it was really cool how much better my posture got as I added more strength training to my life. Everything just seems to align better, and whether sitting or standing I just own it.

The skin on my face!! I have very large pores. While I've never had particularly bad skin, my pores were always more noticeable than the average bear. The better I eat, the less I notice the pores.

I wonder if pores lose weight too????? Isn't that hysterical???

I KNOW that feet lose weight as I went down in size when I was younger and lost weight.

Great post!!

My nails have always been a mess. I would love to see a difference. My hair has shown great improvement and is growing like crazy after years of (I swear) no growth.

Other than that, my body seems to rebel change. Whenever I try t eat totally healthy, I get sick. Colds, sore throats, upset stomach.

Energy is a definite plus when cutting out processed foods.

I can always tell when I've been eating right because I'm filing my nails down while I'm waiting to get my hair cut

my moods are more stable - I tend to be generally happy when I'm eating right & getting regular exercise

One day, I noticed I had really nice nails. I won't say I had bad nails per se. Just one day, after several months of engaging in a healthy lifestyle, I noticed my nails looked really good. they still do.

I don't consider it weird. I consider it a byproduct of a healthy lifestyle.

Earlier this year, I refocused on eating healthier and exercising and its been showing results. All the usual signs are there: more energy, better sleep, getting stronger/fitter, getting sick less, etc. But here's a new one: my hair is more manageable!

I got a haircut about a month ago and as the stylist was blowing it out, she remarked that it was a lot more well behaved than previous times (my hair tends to have its own mind). Well the only thing that has changed between hair cuts is my diet.

So what's the weirdest/most unexpected thing that's changed about you since you started trying to be healthier?
