If you are going to start moving I suggest you start first by getting the right shoes.
You may be able to go to a variety of shoe retailers or big box stores to buy your shoes. But when you weigh just less than 400 lbs and wear a size 16 shoe it is really important to get the best shoe possible and to know that your shoe fits your foot. Not all shoes have the same structure and each brand has a different fit and support. I would say if you are trying to lose weight you need structure and support.
Fortunately for me, RunTex right here in Austin has been specializing in foot wear for runners and walkers for years. So I called up my friend Paul Carrozza and without skipping a beat he says, “You need the Beast!” So down to RunTex Riverside Store I go where Paul put me in correct shoe for my weight and foot.
Love these shoes…for over two weeks now I have been getting up every morning and hitting the street in my neighborhood. My feet feel great and I am moving a little bit more every day.
You have to take care of your feet.
