In brief: Tight show mystery

Feet size generally remain unchanged with weight loss.
However it is a mystery why your shoes are actually getting tighter with weight loss. Perhaps you are accumulating some fluid in your feet and ankles. If you do notice swelling in your feet and ankles do talk to your doctor.
