Hey JUDY1260, what a great idea! I am going to start paying myself $1.00 every time I exercise. The shoes I want are New Balance "Made in the USA." You can actually design your own, and I am going to design a pair of red white and blue shoes. You can even have custom embroidery on the heel. Way cool. They are a bit pricey, but I think I'm worth it. And I always try to support American workers and jobs.

You probably shouldn't buy more than 1 pair at a time if your foot size is changing with weight loss.

I just got myself a new pair of New Balance neon pink shoes with neon green laces!!! They are so fun (and were even on sale for much less than shoes normally cost, so bonus!) ANYWAY, I say this to check out their website or outlets to see if you can find the same ones for a great price!!!

Congratulations on earning a new pair of shoes!

I've been paying myself $1.00 every time I exercise. It goes into my new shoes fund. Between money I've "earned" through exercising and a couple of other sources I'm *this close* to getting my new pair. Like you, I want some bright, colorful new shoes!

ETCH12,

Many members will tell you how they lost a shoe size when they lost weight. Unfortunately, I am not one of those members. My feet just seem to keep getting bigger ! LOL !!!

Depending on how much use your shoes get, figure they should be changed about every 3-4 months. If you only use them at the gym and not outside, they could last a bit longer. Buy a couple of pairs and rotate them. That's another way to get them to last longer.

However, once the support does wear out, it's time to buy new ones.

I made a promise to myself that I would buy a new pair of work out shoes when I lost 20 lbs. Yesterday, my shoes were slipping and sliding during my work out. I mentioned to my husband that I was having minor difficulties. He just laughed. Today, I walked right out of them. I did the math, I have lost exactly 20 pounds. Looks like I get to go shopping. I want some neon pink,lightweight shoes. emoticon
