    Try pointing your toes to do them up - it should lengthen the muscle in your calf and may shrink them enough to do the zip up

    Won't they be too big when you reach goal then, or do you think they would have been too big anyhow? I was reading in the archives that some ladies that lost a lot of weight even dropped shoe sizes. I'd hate that to happen to me. I love my shoes!

    I have gone up a shoe size in past couple of years from 6/6.5 to a 7. My feet just got too fat and wide!! I still have some lovely shoes from my slimmer days, so hoping to get back into them with CD help!

    The coathanger trick works for me too! First tried on jean zips (the first time skinny jeans were around that is!). Tx

    Try wearing knee high tights, the support kind.....(like support knickers for your calves) I learned this trick from my horse riding days when my long leather riding boots were a tight fit!.....this might help you get the zip done up and then wearing them in a bit might stretch! If not hang them in prominent position for extra motivation !!! Better than dangling a carrot!!!
