Default Fat fingers & fat feet!



This may sound like a stupid question but are my chubbed out fingers and toes going to lose weight as I do? My feet feel like ballpark franks (they plump when I use 'em). Really, some of my shoes don't fit! I know that my feet are a bit swollen & I think I'm retaining water, but I just really want to hear that all parts of the body can get smaller with weight loss (except my poor, tired brain . . .)

I would expect so. You've lost a lot more than I have, but I've already noticed a difference in my fingers - my wedding ring practically slides off with less than 10 pounds. Probably just retaining water.

Hopefully somebody else can give you better advice!

Yup, they do! Your rings will get resized, and your toes will stop looking like mini-franks, like mine did when I started. And believe it or not, the sight of my chubby toes and the realization that I had so much body fat that my TOES were chubby sparked the desire to lose weight.

You will definitely lose weight from your fingers and toes, as well as everywhere else!

You will lose weight everywhere I will have to have my rings resized and I've dropped almost 2 shoe sizes. Oh yeah I'm in a normal width instead of wide!

You will see veins & tendons on the backs of your hands that you never knew you had.

Same with the tops of your feet. You'll get interesting hollows in them. And your toes will get longer & a little monkeyish-looking.

I can't wear any of my rings anymore, but I'm waiting to get to goal before I have them resized. And lately my shoes have started sliding right off! I have to go down to a 5 1/2, and I don't have to buy wide width anymore. So yes, you will lose the 'chub' in your extremities. It will be so gradual you won't even notice right away.

Uh-huh. Exactly. I adore staring at my hands now. I find them so cool and interesting. I can't believe they're mine! Feet too, though they still are on wide side, but have improved greatly. I lost many ring and shoe sizes.

In fact I remember when one of my rings literally fell off of my hand, I was so excited, I started a thread about it here at 3FC. As excited as I was, I do recall writing that I couldn't wait till my underwear fell off.

Luckily, I bought new and smaller undies (5X in fact) so I safely avoided them falling off, but had I not changed underwear, they too would have slid right off of me.

Yes they get smaller.

I've always had the hands and feet of a much smaller person but even so my rings FALL off now if I flick my hand just so So I have them wound with tape. Oh and the first time you feel that little bump on the side of your wrist? it's not cancer... it's your wrist bone lol!
