    I used to be a risk taker, but I am less so now.

    I used to be a risk taker, but I am less so now.

    I want to use the invert version of the sentence above.
    Is following correct? Do you have any suggestion?


    I didn't use to be a risk taker, but I am more so now.

    You can also say:
    I'm not as much of a risk taker as I used to be.

    Thank you, Teechar.

    Can I ask if the following are correct too?

    I used to be a risk taker, but I am less of a risk taker now.
    I didn't use to be a risk taker, but I am more of a risk taker now.

    You can, but they repeat "risk taker". Try:
    I'm less of a risk taker now than I used to be.
