What have you physically changed about yourself?

I was ruminating on how different I look now, at 30, compared to how I looked at 18 bloody awful.

I have cut and dyed my hair blonde, had braces and whitened my teeth twice, got contacts, now wear makeup and occasionally fake tan, have longer nails and better clothes. Thanks to the MN bra intervention, I swear even my boobs have changed shape!

Stuff I haven't had control over is losing my baby face (didn't suit me) and getting cheekbones and laughter lines, and suddenly gaining curves all round my middle.

I just wish I made these changes about you?

In the last year I've grown my hair to bob length from short and layered. I love it! It only took a hairdresser willing to go along with it, and about ten months.

Contact lenses at 15 and a nose job at 22 - both made a massive difference to my appearance and self-confidence.

Contact lenses at 17 changed my life (now late 40s). I used to walk with a limp, sorted that out, also used to walk toes out, now walk straight. I'm still working on my overall posture by doing pilates and ballet. Buy makeup a lot more thoughtfully and apply it a lot better thsn when I was younger.

Contact and braces in my teens, hair dye and makeup improved over the years. Probably the biggest change is spending more, a lot more, on clothes.

Contacts in 20s, Cosmetic Dentistry/Whitening in 30s, Botox in 40s.Would love a breast reduction and uplift. Maybe as a treat at 50?

Used to be a flabby mousy size 12.

Ditched sugar and random carbs and went to a size 8 and my face looks so much better. I also got highlights so in a swishy blonde instead of a mouse. I also wear makeup daily now - not much but it makes a huge difference.
