Shoe size?!?!



Recommended Posts

So there is one thing as a big girl I have always let's myself indulge in and that was shoes. No matter what size I was they always looked good ;). So now that I'm on this journey my girlfriend tells me that she lost two shoe sizes! Um noooooooo! I own over 50 pairs and I love them all. :( say it isn't so? Curious did you all lose shoe sizes? Sigh......so new clothes and shoes? Hmmmm just might have to take both clothes and shoe shopping to a whole new level! ;) lol!!!

So I am pre-op, I have always been a size 9, that being said in the past 2-3 years I have noticed that my go to size 9 feel tight across the top of my foot, I tried 9.5s and 10s, and my feet drown in them. This is one gal who is hoping that my projected 100+ lb loss will help my feet fit shoes normally again :-D

Mine went from 9 1/2 Medium to 9 1/2 Narrow. I am literally walking out of my old shoes, my feet slide around so much. Also, before I only wore slides with a nice soft thick sole. Closed shoes or very flat shoes were too uncomfortable. Now I wear little short booties most of the time. And very flat thin soles are OK.

I'm praying for a loss in shoe size! Anything will help! I have the hardest time finding women's size 12 shoes, especially anything half way cute!

I am soooo hoping my feet shrink. Currently an 11 so anything will help. I love shoes but never buy because I have poor luck finding my size. I want cute shoes again!????

Yep, I lost weight in my twenties and dropped a shoe size. Delivered two babies and went back up one size. Gained 100 pounds and went up another. My feet swell a lot, so I have forever bought wide. Hoping to go down one size with the band.

Lordy Lordy, I hope I don't lose shoe sizes... I wear a 7 1/2 wide. I don't mind losing width but I don't want to lose length. My feet already look too small for my body. I have noticed all the shoes I have now are loser and I'm good with that.

Holy cow, I hope so!!! I wear a 14W--- if I can get into a 13 or 13W it would be life changing!!!!

For those solidly rooted ladies like myself, try Barefoottess.com That site has been a lifesaver for me!!!!

Before surgery I had to buy a bigger size shoe because of fat feet and the fact that they swell. Now I notice my feet swim in my shoes, even lace ups. Hopefully, I can last till the end of May when I can go shopping in the Seattle area (more stores to choose from). I think I will have someone measure my feet before I buy any more shoes, just in case they really are smaller (and not wishful thinking).

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
