Shoe Sizes

Well, something interesting happened over the weekend.

I became so tired, I could only stay awake for a few hours at a time. I had to sleep. A lot. So much sleep that I couldn't even make it to the gym. I'm trying not to overthink it.

And...I went shoe shopping. I haven't been shoe shopping in about 2 years. Pathetic I know. And I sat down to try on my shoe size, the same shoe size I've been for as long as I could remember.

And they were too big.

Yes. Apparently, when you lose weight, you can go down a shoe size! Anyone else know this? I am amazed.

And thrilled. Happy me, size 8!

Yep. I've gone from an 8 1/2 to a 9 1/2 in the last 5 years.
Can't wait to be an 8 1/2 again!

That's so funny, I went shoe shopping this weekend too. And yes, that happened to me except the other way around. I used to be a 7.5 and then I went to an 8.5 when I gained weight. Looking forward to getting back to that 7.5 someday! LOL

Your body was definitely fighting something off. Good you listened.

YES! Same thing happened to me the last time I lost weight. All of a sudden I was a size 8. Of course, I ended up back where I started (weight wise) & back to a size 9. Maybe I'm on my way back to a size 8 too....

you're like butter to me

Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
