Default shopping and shoes, OH MY!

I had a little time to kill with my daughter yesterday, so we wandered into a shoe store.

I used to love wearing heels, but for the last few years, if I tried on a more strappy shoe or a heel I just couldn't get it on my feet-- pinch pinch... I figured my feet had just spread from four kids and age. My feet were never visibly fat that I could see...

But yesterday, I started trying on spike heeled pumps and, I put them on and my foot just slid right into them, like Cinderella and the glass slipper

I came out with a pair of ankle high black boots with a four inch heel. They were so high I could barely remember how to walk in them. But they did not pinch my feet at all. I almost bought a pair of strappy pumps too.

We went next store to TJ MAXX and I thought all the clothes got bigger... I didn't try anything on, but I saw tons of regular sized clothes that I knew would fit.

This is JUST CRAZY!

I don't know how to walk in heels, but when I get nearer my goal I definitely want to learn! Major congrats. You need to take a pic of those sassy boots for us to see!

Congratulations, sounds like you're having well-deserved fun

Well *comfort* is relative.

I kinda doubt I could wear them all day, but if you knew what a mild-mannered soccer mom persona I have you'd pretty much know why I wanted the boots.

That sounds like so much fun! As I have had wide feet all my life, I don't think that I could ever wear heels but enjoy hearing about it!

Way to go!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE SHOES!!!!!! Sadly, I can never wear anything because 1: My weight makes it hurt, and 2: my feet are so wide that I have all this extra room in length. I have to buy things with straps so they don't fall off.

I am so hoping that I will lose some of the width in my feet too and can wear my normal length. That being said, I COMPLETELY understand your excitement!

Congrats and have fun with those boots!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that phase! When you begin to realize you are NORMAL SIZED and that there are SO MANY MORE things that are available to you! Even now that I can wear size 14-16 I am astounded that I CAN WEAR THOSE SIZES!!!!

Heeheheee... so it's not just me, LOL.

It's so odd, since I can't see any change in my feet-- they didn't look puffy before, but all of a sudden, SHOES FIT! No wedges for me... I went SPIKE all the way. Now let's see if I dare wear them out of the house.

And cfmama, I remember when you were posting stuff about that, and I kept wondering how long it would take me to get to the place, and then all of a sudden, I realized that I'm pretty much there! I totally plateaud out for a while there, but that was also when I started running and lifting, and all of a sudden I started dropping inches and just getting smaller!!!!!

I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but I have this bizarre sensation that I'm staying the same but that STUFF is getting bigger. Even other people seem to be getting bigger.

It's SO WEIRD! But FUN!

I am sooo hoping that my feet shrink...I am an 11w on a good day, really a 12 and it is such a PITA to find cute shoes...I'm hoping to be a 10 since that's what I was in HS.

Have fun with your cute new shoes!

Surreal, isn't it?!

I realized, like, yesterday...if the average woman in the US wears a size 14...and my size 14s are baggy and look like crap...that *might* mean I am smaller than the average woman in the US......???????? ME?!?!
