Women's Athletic Shoes

Saturday, February 09, 2013

Yesterday I decided it was time. So many of my Spark friends have sent me virtual shoes and my real shoes are a bit worn. So I went to buy new athletic shoes.

I used to buy my shoes at the extra big and wide shop--also guaranteed to be extra expensive. Then I discovered that for unisex shoes, like running shoes, the boys department has wide shoes that are cheap and fit me [self-service stores only, please].
But yesterday I thought, why don't I try on some women's shoes? And they fit!! Not too snug, just right. This may not seem like a big thing to those of you who have just 30-40 pounds to lose, but for us big girls it's huge! Another non-scale victory!!

    Buying shoe was never problem for me until now because I use these shoes for exercise and my work. I am trying to get me athletic shoe since weeks but I have no luck.
