My shoes are too big! Did my feet lose weight?!

          So, I put on a pair of heels the other month, and they were too big. I looked like a little kid playing dress up with my Mom’s shoes. They were flopping off my feet with every step. I was in a hurry at the time, so I was shoving bits of tissue and toilet paper into the shoes to make them a little snugger. As I was doing this I was thinking, “Oh my god, my feet lost weight. I have to buy more shoes.” Then I smiled, because I love shoe shopping.

            I didn’t really think that my feet could shrink, but they did. I also didn’t expect that I would get shorter. Really, I didn’t think it was possible for me to get any shorter. I used to be right around 5’3”, but now I’m lucky to make it to 5’2 ½”! I know that doesn’t seem like a lot, but when you’re short, every ¼ of an inch counts! I’m starting to think that the extra height was in my fat feet! I mean, I used to think the tops of my feet looked fat, but the bottom of my feet? That’s just crazy.

 I saw a show that showed how the fat guy from Varsity Blues had a gastric bypass. He lost over half his body weight, and he shrank around 2 inches. They said he lost fat from the bottom of his feet and the top of his head. I just can’t believe he had 2 inches of fat in the bottom of his feet and top of his head. Is that happening to me too? I wonder if I have head fat to lose. Am I going to get even shorter? Oh geeze, I hope not.

  1. Good luck shoe shopping :D I love going shoe shopping as well.

    I haven't checked my height I have always been 5'5
    I am assuming I still am. But I know when I was slimmer I used to wear 7.5 now I wear 8.5(it's a bit big now though) At my heaviest I was wearing 9. I am looking forward to wearing size 8 shoes again.

  5. New to your blog, and read your profile. I am fat due to loving food alone, too. As for the shoes, I LOOOOVE shoes, and am so scared that all the ones I have will eventually not fit as I keep losing weight. So I get these heel pads from drugstore.com that help alot. I don't want to trash my old ones, and I sure as heck am gonna keep buying new ones!
