As you say, it alters; I think someone brought that point up on another forum but nobody understood what they were getting at and looked at them as if they had two heads.
For most of my life I could connect my thumb and middle finger easily around my wrist. Now they are 3/4 inch off.

But, there were times during my skinny fay days when I weighed under 175 and couldn't touch.
