do your shoes still fit?



Recommended Posts

Those of you who have reached your goal weights or close to it, have you noticed if your feet have shrunk enough to warrant a different size?Curious, as I had bought expensive but comfy shoes for summer as they are open mesh and opentoe and strapheels.

I am concerned that they may be too big for me next summer.

What do you think?

anyone had that problem?

My feet have shrunk substantially. None of my shoes fit and I'm still 40lbs from goal. I used to wear an 8.5Wide, now I can wear a 7.5 or 8 regular width(depending on the style of shoe). Some flip flops I still need an 8.5, but tennis shoes, or runners I need a 7.5.

I was more upset about my shoes not fitting than I was about my clothes. I seriously love shoes ! ! !

Mine did too! With the band loss originally it was almost a wwhole size........ so I got to be a 9 or 9 1/2 (who hoo....sarcasm here......still huge and limited cheap options) but I used to be and 10 1/2 or an 11.

I also lost some width too!

BUT I COULD BUY BOOTS OFF THE RACK................that was amazing and of course expensive!

My shoes -at least all the summer sandals (mostly mules) are too big and my feet slip in them if I have to walk any distance. I haven't tried any new shoes on yet, but am sure that I will no longer need a wide width and am hoping a smaller size.

My shoes got loose right away. I still take the same size most of the time but my feet aren't as wide so all the wide styles I used to wear are too big.

Mine shrunk too. I have gone from a 9W to a normal width 8 1/2. I am amazed at how much cuter the shoes are just from going down that tiny bit.

I can't imagine buying shoes that aren't wide. So much more variety!

From the guy side, my feet have shrunk. I went from an 11 1/2 wide to just a plain old 11 now!!!!

Brandi - what a great line about the earrings - I may use that with friends!

I had my feet measured at a shoe store yesterday. My feet have dropped a half a size in length and have gone back to a medium width. So now, I am getting rid of the shoes I bought when I was at my highest weight and going back to the size I was years ago. Too bad I had gotten rid of most of the shoes in THAT size ages ago. DAMN - I am being FORCED to buy shoes - what a burden! (evil smile)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
