My feet are shrinking!! It is the wierdest thing. Even shoes that fit me last summer are big ol' boats on me now. I am down a size and a half. The strangest part is that I am pregnant with my 7th child which is normally the time feet grow a bit - not me! The only thing that has changed is my diet....
I must say I am totally digging this effect :D it's amazing how much cuter shoes are in smaller sizes!! LOL

That's awesome, I hope that when I get started my feet will do that! THey grew a size and a half when I had kids, and now I can't fit into my good ice skates. If my feet shrank, that would be fantastic! =)

Where fat deposits are distributed throughout the body is largely a function of diathesis, or inherited disposition. Someone who carries fat reserves on his/her feet would expect to drop shoe sizes as the body sheds its waste storage (which is what fat mainly is).

I just took my Birkenstock sandal straps in a notch because the swelling is going down in my feet. Hooray raw food!

Yay! Now they can call you little foot.
Hmm...I'd like to be called LittleFoot too but there ain't much little about me. Yet. :rolleyes:

Rebecca isn't that amazing! That happened to me last August when I first started raw. By September, I couldn't wear my size 8 1/2's the same way anymore. I actually bought 7 1/2's. I couldn't believe it. The raw living made a huge difference---not having all the salty snacks that previously kept my feet swollen. Wow!

I have my newer glassess sitting on my puter stand. I bent them one day, took them to walmart to get them straightened but they did not adjust them. I put them on and walked a bit but then took them off as i got nauseous from wearing them. I could see fine aside of that. Well I have been wearing my older ones and the other day I put the newer ones on and everything is blurry. So if the new ones r now blurry and i am wearing weaker older ones than that has to mean my eyes r stronger. :D My psoriasis is getting better also. It is taking its time but it is no longer red. Now it is a lighter pink and when u live in cold country usually psoriasis gets thick with dead skin, cracked and bleeding. I dont have any of that and I am so happy. Now if only it all clears up before summer so i can finally wear shorts and short sleeve shirts without showing off my ps and having people ask me about it.
Good things r coming from eating healthy.:D

That's really COOL! I used to be a size smaller in shoes when I wasn't overweight. I was wondering about this just yesterday, if my size will go down again when I lose weight again.
You've given me hope, thanks! :)
