Are you looking for the BariatricPal Store? Go now!

Recommended Posts

Like Before and After photos but for your footwear!

A lot of us change shoe size after surgery, (go down in size and width!) but even more interestingly we become more daring also, trading in flats for stilettos, crocks for running sneakers or even flip flops for closed toe...

If you've had a changes some to your shoe game (or anticipate new shoes & goal shoes) , please share with us your experience and maybe even a photo!

I'll kick this off lol

The heeled boots were presurgery and I was amazed they were so comfortable I bought 3 pairs. I lived in these, all day running around in heels. They were amazing.

Now, post surgery I have one last unworn pair that are too loose and uncomfortable to wear without 2 pair of socks 😢

I try on a lot of different shoes but pretty much exclusively wear the ones in the second picture. They are a half size smaller and made for walking. Everywhere.

Managed these through a 4-hour cocktail party, previously would’ve looked for a wedge. Wore them around the store for 30 minutes just in case, but they worked out!

And I’m experiencing the same thing with boots - all the awesome boots I own are now a LITTLE too roomy all round. So I went a half size down and it’s a perfect fit.

This is a non-scale-victory that never crossed my mind. Between a lifetime of working on my feet and being obese, heels haven't even crossed my mind in years. Pretty shoes will now be another motivator to work hard at losing.

I have always bought some heels and wedges and never wore them. I think it was a mental thing to have them.. who knows if next year I wont actually wear ones I buy lol

The first thing that stopped fitting me was my pair of tall boots. Which makes me sad because it's too early to think about buying new ones and they're my perfect shoe for work in winter.

I probably wouldn’t either if it wasn’t for my daughter and DIL’s. They all wear them with leggings or skinny jeans and they look so stinkin’ cute !!!

I've also gone down half a shoe size, and can spend a day in heels and not want to die. 🤣

Also had to ditch my wide calf boots.

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week

        If people ask, I am open about it

      2. ms.sss

        I'm about 10 months post op, and my standard answer is I eat way less and exercise way more (oh, and I cut the carbs by a lot). The only people I told were Mr., the Kid, BFF and my Mom.

        People know cuz my sissies have big mouths. And when skinny peeps ask out of morbid curiousity and they are "related" somehow to me, I look at em and arch my eyebrow and smile like, WTF? Then I just shrug and say, "I can neither confirm nor deny." (I've practiced this in the mirror many times. LOL!)

        But today, I was talking to a lady in my oncologist's office and she said "Oh don't you love you Surgeon X - bariatric surgeon? I'm in her weigh loss program!" And so I really opened up to her and talked frankly about the program and the surgery and details and how I'm so much happier and healthier, etc. So there has to be a real genuine need and desire for comraderie--otherwise, "Bye Felicia..."
