Even my feet are smaller...?
I used to be a solid 8 for many years. Then I got heavy, and the next thing I knew, my she size was an 8.5. For probably close to 20 years, I've been wearing an 8.5 (and sometimes a 9 depending on the shoe or manufacturer).
For the wedding I was in, I bought some closed shoes (after having worn open-back shoes for many years as well). I was really glad I tried those on when I bought them and didn't just go with the belief I was an 8.5, because the 8.5s were swimming on my feet. Meh, I thought, it's that pair.
Well, I went to a shoe store this past weekend and was looking around, and I tried on one pair in an 8.5, and my feet were swimming in it. Again, I figured it was that particular manufacturer. I then found another shoe in an 8.5, and again, it was too big. By the third time of trying an 8.5 only to find it far too big, I moved over to the 8s -- which fit.
Since many times our shoe size increases with our weight and girth, is it possible -- even likely -- for our shoe size to go back down again when we lose?? I'm thinking it must be a reality, because so far as I can see, I'm now an 8 again.
