Okay, I've lost a lot of weight, and I went from a size 11 shoe to a 9. What the heck? Anyone else experience this? WHY?!?!? Did I lose feet fat?

LOL I just noticed the same thing. I was banded on 1/6 and I've lost like 25 lbs and my new shoes I got for Christmas and only wore once aren't tight anymore and my old broken in shoes are falling off my feet.

I haven't been banded yet but I notice that I am no longer in a size but in like 8.5! The only thing i could think of was maybe they are making shoes bigger?

Is it just that they got less wide and you can now wear your "real" size, not just one that fits the width? That's what I'm hoping happens because I have really wide feet!

lol it's funny because I have 2 different feet. One looks exactly like my mom's and one exactly like my dad's. My mom has feet feet my dad has skinny feet. My fat foot is losing the weight, my other foot looks the same. I also noticed that the pain I had in my feet for the last few months is GONE. I thought for sure I had stress fractures in the sides of my feet that hurt every time I took a step. I guess the extra 25 lbs was killing my feet.

This post is so encouraging. I am just starting this journey and I have Fred Flintstone feet!! They're puffy and wide :w00t:. Maybe someday.... there may be hope for my feet as well!

Me, too, Nooshie!

My sister has been telling me that I have Fred Flintstone feet since the 4th grade! My feet have already gone from 11.5 W to a 11 M. It can only get better from here!
