Shoes, Glorious Shoes

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Of all the things I like about losing weight, it's the smallest things that are the most gratifying.

What small things? Two things: 1.) the ability to remove my rings again; and 2.) I can wear size 5 shoes again!

In shoes, I was up to size 6.5, sometimes 7, just to get a comfortable width, even though the length was always too long for my foot. Or worse, shoes wouldn't fit me at all and I had to stick to something that was offered in a W width. Well, not anymore!

The slight downside to each of those things is 1.) my engagement ring now twists incessantly and it really bugs me sometimes; and 2.) I can now find any number of cheap shoes that fit me.

Certain shoe stores keep calling my name, and it's hard to resist the lure...

    @JACKIE542, my engagement ring has more sentimental than actual value (as a poor student I didn't want to bankrupt my future husband), but I have now switched to wearing it on my middle finger, where it doesn't twist, until I can get my act together and take it to a jeweller for resizing.

    @SCRAPBECCA, sounds good to me! Though I guess a lot of those ill-fitting shoes from before now need to be replaced, so it's not just frivolous shoe shopping -- well, that's what I tell myself, anyway.

    @MAGGIEVAN, you are so right! Thanks for your comment.

    It's great to be able to have different types of shoes, be careful you don't lose your ring though. emoticon

    Buying shoes and wearing those is much better than stuffing your face. Congrats with your achievements. Just keep on keeping on.
