    I hear you on the shoes, I'm really hating the weather getting colder now that my feet have all spread out between the flip flops and barefooting it all summer. :/

        Ooooooh, ive been having much more problems with my "fancy" shoes too. I thought it was just cause my legs and back are stronger and not used to wearing heels anymore. But I was confused cause I couldnt see why that would cause blisters. Damn, well, good thing my office lets me go VFF, socked, or barefoot all the time anyway.

          [/QUOTE]Plus I'm having to fend off endless advances from much younger men. I don't know how much longer I can manage.[/QUOTE]

          Giggling .... Also getting this ... LOL, but I will refrain on saying how much younger .... suffice it to say, it's a lot !
          Workout capri's are getting looser in the leg, making folds of fabric up and down the thighs ... yeah ! Love it .. lots of squats, leg press, deadlifts, squat stances on the ropes do a body good !
          Everything's shiny, Cap'n. Not to fret.

            I feel weird when I touch my trunk... I feel like wait... where did I go????? (new feeling for me)

            I hate VFF money trap.... addictive buggers they are.

            I hate that I watch what other people eat...

            I hate that I cant wear VFFs at the office or grow a winter caveman beard...

            I hate watching people at the gym who have "fuckarounditus" (leangains)... although... I have always hated this even when I was SAD.

              get other minimalist shoes for the office, as some are ok for office wear if you are a more dress-casual atmosphere.

                I feel that way in the bath tub and there is so much more room between my rear and the arms of the chair now.

                I have three pairs of VFFs. My "frustration" now is trying to decide which one of them to wear today.

                  i'm thinking of leaving VFFs behind, because i'm super hard on my shoes and. . . i think they are not lasting a full year at this point. Sad, really, because I love them. But, IDK.

                  we shall see. I might just bare foot all summer, and then winter, figure something out.

                    Oh I know, I just noticed that ive worn a little hole through the sole of one of the toes on my first pair. It hasnt worn through the fabric yet, but still I was like, nooooooo! Youre only two years old! X(

                      yeah. i'm just about there my self on the ball of one of the feet. left foot, below the second toe. seriously, sadness.

                      the real issue is that i am very hard on all of my shoes. the only shoes that i've had that have lasted a long time are my keens. they are about 4-5 years old and now are finally wearing out. and while they are a wide, comfortable foot bed, the reality is that they are not the same (or as comfortable) as VFFs. of course, VFFS are not comfortable on a wet, cold day here. That's no fun at all. then my feet are just cold!

                      i'm considering huarches for summer and then a pair of mackenley boots -- hawk has a pair -- and they are apparently very solid shoes. well, he beats the hell out of them, and they keep on going. but, i don't really have any clue as to what i want to do.

                      i just don't like having cold feet. but whenever i'm indoors, i am not wearing shoes. . . so. . . hmm.

                        I hate that I no longer need to use my expensive MAC foundation because my skin is so clear I dont need it.
                        I hate that I need to replace 30 pairs of hideousTarget-brand maternity undies because I'm actually starting to look sexy in normal, Lacey undies.

                          It sucks that I have to either iron my clothes or throw them in the dryer with a damp cloth for a couple of minutes every morning because I can no longer rely on my fat rolls to smooth out the wrinkles.

                          Stinks to have DH hug me and our arms go ALL the way around each other...gives him more 'free hand space' to tickle me silly.

                          Hate it that the DH is taking over some of my old favorite sweats and t-shirts... I really liked them!

                          DH went from >360 lbs to 289 and I've only lost 45 lbs -- why do men always loose it so much faster?
                          Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
                          Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
                          Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

                            The freezer contains beef mince, lamb's heart and liver, pork chops, a chicken and wild salmon, and there's bacon and free range eggs in the fridge, and don't even get me started on the vegetables, and how am I supposed to decide? And it's no use saying 'eat more than one' because I know one full meal's going to keep me full for 5-8 hours.

                            Never had this problem when I ate pasta for lunch every day, and then wholewheat muesli for a snack a couple of hours later - and I'd still be hungry again by the evening meal.

                            And then there's the whole embarrassment of getting stared at for running up the stairs instead of using the escalator, or absent-mindedly picking up things that are supposed to be far too heavy for me. It's just not normal.

                              My wife ordered me to stop wearing my wedding ring as it was falling off too much. Not allowed to get it resized until I finish losing weight. Not allowed to buy new clothes until I finish losing weight. So I'm just a poor guy bouncing around the place in baggy clothes with no wedding ring. And I have to go shopping more often as all my food is fresh - as a guy I hate shopping. And I'm always carrying my 20 month old son back from our walk as he's run out of energy and I don't take a pram (stroller) because I can now carry him for miles. Woe is me.
