Default strange question for those who've lost a lot of weight

I have found that my shoe size has changed, like 1/2 to 1 full size smaller. Also my belly ring is now to big. when I got pierced she did it to deep and so I always had a hard time finding 1/2" instead of 7/16" this past week I noticed that I could easily wear a smaller one now. Has this happened to anyone else?

Don't know anything about belly rings, but I do know about shoe sizes. When you lose weight you lose it all over your body. I was wearing 8 or 9 size shoes. I now wear 7 or 7 1/2.

Heh, the belly ring is news to me, but I did lose 1/2 a shoe size. I went from an 8 1/2 to an 8!

Funny, I wish my feet would have shrunk. Instead, mine are a 1/2 size larger! What a pain...

I don't have any experience of belly rings, but I have noticed that my feet have become significantly smaller since losing weight (approximately 50lbs). There are some shoes that I owned at my heavier weight that I'm now unable to wear - they literally flap off my feet if I try to walk in them!

It isn't the length that has changed, but the width. I used to have to buy shoes that were a bigger size (and thus slightly too long for me) because the correct length shoe was too narrow. The change in shoe size makes sense to me - when I had a greater amount of weight pressing down on my feet, they spread out more and were thus wider. Since losing weight, there's less pressing on them, and less need for them to spread! That's just my theory, though. Or, it could be that when I was heavier, walking put a greater stress on my feet and therefore, more blood ran to them and made them more engorged. Who knows what it is, but I like not having such wide feet!

I don't know about shoe sizes, but I know that I can wear high heels again (boots AND shoes) and they don't hurt my bunions!

I just bought my very first pair of high heeled dress boots ever! I am so proud I actually went out last weekend a bought an entire new wardrobe! Man I had no idea how much my size had changed until I went out and bought dress clothes instead of t-shirts and jeans!

In the past, I have had the a case of the curious shrinking feet...
But I have put back on weight, and now my feet have grown
