What the hell?? Now I'm down to a size 7. The weather is finally starting to ease up here in the Northeast so last weekend I started changing over back into warmer weather shoes and OMG....the 7 1/2's are falling off my feet. I don't get it. I know my feet got narrower and I already went down from an 8 1/2 to 7 1/2 over the course of two years but I didn't expect to go down another half size. Some of these shoes are really nice and I don't want to get rid of them. I tried cushions and other things to be able to wear them, and some of the shoes still fit, but many do not.

How in the world did my feet go from an 8 1/2 to a 7? The only good thing is that I've spent so much money at DSW that I got a pair of shoes for free. I hate to think what I've spent on shoes these last two years.

Oh, and for those folks who doen't see the scale move and get discouraged...take it from me...no weight change does not mean no change in clothing sizes. I've been fairly stable at the 113 lbs for a while now...and have lost a total of ten pounds in the last six months...not much, right? Well, I've noticed some of my clothes are getting loose on me again. I have several medium tops with short sleeves that I suspect I will need to replace for this coming season. I know I need some new jeans....my size 6 black jeans are falling off me and I just bought them about three or four months ago. So remember that the scale is just a number and you can't live and die with it. Use your clothing as a better indicator of how you are doing in the weight loss department.

Have a great Friday and a great weekend everyone!

I wore these grown up shoes last week. They were a size smaller than I expected. I haven't worn a heel in forever. My foot bones are perpetually messed up, so I paid dearly in painful feet the rest of the week, but while I wore them I felt great.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Unfortunately, you're going to just have to let the shoes go, Go Walking lol. Go figure. Hahaha I completely understand what you mean about the weight loss. I'm in between shoe and pant sizes as well. I never would have thought that my misses frame I've accepted all my life is a junior size 7. Really????? Continued success

@@gowalking Hahahahaha I just had to laugh sorry!!! You know I have been going through the same exact thing. We talked about this over the weekend at our meeting.

I have some miserable back issues that I never knew I had going on before I was in a car accident last year. So FF to today after CAT scans and MRI's I have some disc bulges and degeneration in my spine at the lumbar and cervical spine so top and bottom which just makes the whole thing feel like crap! On days like today when the weather is weepy I am too cause I am achy :(

Well for the last few months I have been flopping around in my mothers shoes. Or rather I felt like a kid walking around in her mothers shoes, because the darn things were about a size too big. It was winter and boot season and you know half the boots I wore this year didn't fit right when I bought them! Most were too tight or didn't zip up all the way and I would hide them under my pants who could tell right?

So this year I was jazzed that they fit and I could wear them and you know what...they only made my back hurt more. I went home at the end of the day sore and in pain from wearing shoes that were too big. One day I told my husband and stood across the room said to hubby ready? Catch and kicked my foot up and the shoe went flying off my foot across the room to him.

Yeah time for some new shoes! I am now back to the size 6.5 I was before I had children 26 years ago. Now if I could fit in my size 3 pants from when I was 16 we would be talking, but I'll be happy with a 5-6!!!

Oh and the new shoes...well I can say that my back doesn't hurt AS much as it was. Having shoes that fit and you can walk in comfortably really means alot!

I've read that some people go Duran in size and some don't. I would LOVE to be in camp smaller!!! I have worn an 11 most of my life. Cute shoes are definitely limited. Needless to say, this makes me happy at even the prospect!! :-)

      I joined BariatricPal in 2008 & I FINALLY made the descision to have WLS!! I'm so excited & not sure what I need to do to get the ball rolling, but I made an appointment with my PCP for 7/19. It's a start I guess.

        I've been dreaming about it for 30 years or so. It's time to make it happen!

      I joined yesterday when I was struggling with this preop diet... 
      It typically comes and goes, the hard times and easier times. I'm on day 6 of 14  shakes, water, sf Popsicles and jello. And I might actually be losing my mind. But, oh dear lord has the fear set in. Not about the surgery itself, but life afterwards. If I feel this crappy on the preop diet, am I going to feel like this forever after? 
      I know most of the answers are no, not forever. It might be worse after for a while, then get better. I know it's a more of a mental challenge than physical after the first couple weeks of healing. I get all of that. But I'm starting to feel scared about losing myself afterwards. 
      It might be my hormones or desire to chew something salty talking.. It may go away soon or tomorrow.. I can hope, anyway. But right now.. The fear is real. 
       
      And this liquid diet can bite me.

        Fear is normal, but if it makes you feel any better, I'm 4.5 months post-op and the pre-op diet was by far the hardest part of the whole process. There will be challenges and a lot of new things to learn, but I can honestly say at this point I feel so much more "back to normal" and was even able to go on a week-long vacation with my kids without stressing over it. It's so worthwhile.

        @NickelChip This actually does make me feel better! Thank you so much! After the onslaught of Covid, we've all had to deal with a "new normal", so I know it's possible. It's just the fear and frustration in this moment that makes me question if I can find another "new normal" afterwards. The thought of just a few more months seems daunting some times, but I really do appreciate input and real experience. I'll use that to get me through for a few more hours! LOL. Thank you so much! And I'm glad everything is going so well for you! ❤️
