Good question... I dunno what is the answer to that question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I discover an answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably know..
I am almost 6 months post op and I can no longer wear my wedding ring because it slide off so much. Also, my shoe size has gone down too..
Nothing else "shrinks", except the lbs around my belly...
Before I had wls one of the experts here said to take photos of your hand and feet which I did and I cannot believe how much smaller they got. I wear gloves that I haven't worn in years and love the way my shoes fit. I love lacing my shoes so there is no gap between the laces. I always hated the way fat peoples shoes are always wide open!.
As for hands and wrists, I can now connect my thumb and middle finger around my wrist, something I hadn't done since college...
Absolutely. I was wearing a size 11 shoe and am now down to a 9.5/10. Mostly because my feet don't swell up like they used to. I also lost a ring size, it's normal with a large amount of weight loss...
Everything has gone down. I am 2 1/2 yearas out and I can no longer wear my wedding rings or any of my other rings. I was a size 10 prior to.
And the jeweler measured me at a size 6 1/2 now. Getting my rings resized..
My shoe size also went from a 7 to a 6 1/2. Isn't it great when we realize that everything shrinks!!!..
Boy have emy fingers changed! I have had to have my wedding ring resized twice and it seems loose again. My feet have not changed as much, but they certainly are not as fat as they used to be...
4 weeks post.
...just commented to my husband that my wedding band is falling off if I shake my hand! And I've only lost 15 pounds since.
That's interesting about shoe sizes. Always wondered why my shoe size kept increasing as an adult, ha!!..
Hello, My fingers has also gotten smaller, I cannot wear my weddng rings anymore because they slide off my fingers, I also feel a difference in my shoe size as well, it is a wonderful feeling...Happy Losing everyone !!!..
I've moved my wedding ring and my mother's ring to my middle fingers. When those fingers get too small, I'll put them on a chain around my neck, until I'm close to goal weight. I only want to resize once..
Please let my size 11 feet get smaller.....oh please!.
Next week. Will let you know...
Hey guys, I am curious!! How has your ring and feet size changed as you lost weight! I bought a beautiful ring for my birthday (today) and I ordered my regular size and it's too big!! I had.
On 10/19/09 and has lost 70+ lbs, my ring sizw WAS 8, now I think I am 7 1/2!!! Foot size 10 widenot sure what it is nowbut shoes are wide and big!! What are your experiences????? Debbie..
I too lost in my hands and feet. Before.
My ring finger was an 8....now it's a 7. My pinkie went from a 6 to a 4!!! My shoe size always varied alot because I have small feet and they are very wide, but now I seem to stick to just the 6.5 to 7 range...before I could wear anywhere from a 6.5 to an 8!!! A friend of mine said the weight loss would happen in the feet...I didn't believe herwell I do now!!! :) I too agree that I don't have the swelling that I had before when I was "larger". It's amazing what all changes!!! :).
Hi dcrdiva....FINALLY I've met someone who has the same exact.
Date as me (and close to the same age too, I am 57)!!! My hubby just bought me a sapphire ring on our St. Thomas.
And it fit fine there because of the.
But not that I'm back in Michigan the cold has made the ring TOO big...I'll have to get it sized I guess. My shoe size has not changed...
Ring size dropped 2 sizes. shoes dropped from 9s to between 8 and 8 1/2. Shoe shopping is interesting when you are between sizes. I will have my favorite rings sized and say goodbye to the rest...
Thanks guys, I think I will send back the ring I got and get a 7. My daughtr threw me a bowlng party and the shoes they gave me were a 9 and I usually wear a 10! So it looks like I am down a size in hands AND feet!!! Whewee:).
Morethanready, another thing that comes with girls our ageis our memory, my.
Was 10/29/09sorry. We are still close in time and can compare journeys!!! Debbie..
Ahhh I have a disease that causes the skin on my hands and feet to regenerate like crazy....which has seriously slowed since having the bypass....BUT...once upon a time...pre.
...I took pictures of my hands and feet when they were in bad shape.....
BUT the point to this....is....i just looked back at those pictures..and HOLY HANNAH....what a difference. I"ll take current pics of my hands and feet and post them in my album. Big difference..
Not to mention that I know I have lost at least one size in my feet...I was a 10 and now wear a size 9...I had to buy all new shoes...I dont' wear rings but I can visually see that I would definately need smaller sized rings....
I had to have my wedding rings sized down two full sizes and my feet shrank, so I was able to get back in WOMEN'S shoe sizes!! My feet are wide just the same, but I am back into a women's 10W!!..
