    I have a question which may sound a bit odd, but hopefully some of you successful dieters will be able to help me. When you lose a lot of weight (I have about 70lbs to lose or so) do your feet get any smaller ... my feet are normally a seven (I know .. huge feet too) but I got some shoes yesterday (4 pairs free), 2 size 7s (which are a teensy bit small) and 3 size 8s which fit fine .... My question is will my feet get smaller and will these gorgeous shoes fit me???

    Any replies appreciated ... LOVE this site ... really helping to motivate me to start end of December

    BMI and FOOT HEALTH

    Couldnt resist posting something here, i work with feet!!


    Obesity may lead to foot problems according to a survey presented at the American Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society (AOFAS) Annual Summer Meeting here today. Over 6,000 individuals responded to the survey, which was conducted on the Society's public education website, http://www.FootCareMD.com.​

    The survey, conducted by the AOFAS Public Education Committee, found that foot and ankle problems can be linked to an individual's weight and body mass index (BMI). Individuals who responded to the survey and reported current foot and ankle pain, who had prior foot surgery or who had previously seen a physician about foot and ankle pain, all seemed to have a higher BMI than those who did not report pain. Furthermore, 40.8 percent of the respondents reported weight gain prior to the onset of pain. ​

    “It is important for the public to know that obesity isn't just an aesthetic issue, but a contributing cause of musculoskeletal health problems, specifically with the feet and ankles,” said Stuart D. Miller, M.D., Baltimore, MD, a member of the AOFAS Public Education Committee. ​

    The survey asked 6157 respondents, with the mean age of 34.5 years and average body mass index (BMI) of 27.9 kg/m2, about foot and ankle problems. People with the BMI of 18.5 - 24.9 kg/m2 are classified as normal, 25.0 - 29.9 kg/m2 are considered overweight and above 30.0 kg/m2 are obese. ​

    While problems vary from patient to patient, foot and ankle pain often occurs in weight bearing areas, as well as in the tendons and ligaments. Common foot problems include posterior tibial tendonitis, pain in the tendon that runs along the inside of the ankle and the foot; plantar fasciitis, an inflammation in the thick ligamentous connective tissue that runs from the heel to the ball of the foot; and hindfoot arthritis, an inflammation in the back part of the foot. ​

    “In general, people carry approximately four to six times their body weight across the ankle joint when climbing up stairs or walking steep inclines. Obesity may significantly increase the impact,” explained Dr. Miller. Increased BMI has also been found to increase foot pressures with standing and walking, and is no doubt a precursor to foot and ankle pain. ​

    The survey also uncovered some differences between the sexes. Among respondents, women were more likely to see a physician for foot pain and more likely to change their shoes based on physician's advice. Similarly, more women underwent foot and ankle surgery than men. Men, however, more often claimed a specific injury as the cause of pain and were more likely to wear orthotic inserts in their shoes. ​



    Obesity can also lead to diabetes and the added complication of diabetic foot ulcers;

    My feet have gone from a 4 to a 3.5, the 3.5s are starting to get a little loose, I really don't want them to shrink anymore! Although a 3.5 is hard to get I don't want to be a 3 :mad: lol
