    ive recently noticed that my shoes are getting a bit big. today i confirmed it though - my feet keep sliding in and out of my shoes and there is quite a significant space from the back of the hell towards the end of the shoe. they might be slipping out due to pop socks? Do you think weight loss affects foot sizes as well?

    Hi Jenna,

    I've noticed this too. It's true, shoes 'grow' a little with wear, but I just couldn't keep mine on. Hence an excuse to buy new shoes.

    I am beginning to think this diet should come with major expenditure warnings though. New clothes, new shoes, what next?

    oooh glad someone has mentioned this, I have noticed this too - I though perhaps my foot was getting narrower (??) rather than shorter - but shoes definately looser than before.

    strange!

    yeah, my feet are wide. always have been. if they weren't, i think i could get into a size 4 (37). but i normally buy 39s (6) and at times 38 (5) if they are a bit wider.

    now my 39 high heel shoes are too big. hmmm.....i need to hit the jackpot soon!!

    Yep, happened to me too. I lost 3 stone and can no longer wear a 6, and tend to buy 5½ or sometimes 5.

    I think you lose weight all over with a VLCD and it's all fat, so you get smaller all over too. I wonder if my earlobes are slimmer:thinking2: ;)

    Yep I've gone down about half a shoe size and boots I culdn't zip up over my calf are now fine. When we are overweight we carry fat EVERYWHERE.

    Yep - a sugardaddy for me please!!! I can shop for England.

    Mine too. It makes perfect sense when you think about it though... your feet swell/stretch when they're carrying all of the extra weight... and the more you lose, the less your feet have to accommodate.

    I've gone from a 7 to about a 6 1/2 now... I still wear my 7's but they're getting quite wide.

    So glad to have found this thread.
    Thought I was going mad when shoes felt loose.Even considered the poss of a pixie coming at night & stretching them.

    Sadly shoes are one part of my wardrobe I don't want to upgrade as I quite like what I've got.

    OMG Jane I never stretched your shoes! :p
    Tis a fact that your feet get smaller as you lose weight, not because you have fat feet but because there is less weight pushing down on them which causes them to spread.
    Look at the width of your foot if you hold it just off the fllor then put your weight on it and it magically spreads out!:D

    Well, this is good news as maybe the lovely boots I bought a few weeks back will fit me soon and not cripple my feet :rolleyes: :rotflmao:

    What you described makes perfect sense thanks.plus there may be a little fat loss too.I certainly think that bit just below the ankle has got thinner & that wouldn't be a loading/spreading thing.
