A small victory (Jennifer)

At my heaviest my wedding rings were a size 8.  I lost some weight and had to have them sized down to a 7.  I hung out around 200 lbs for a while.  Then I dropped another 30-40 more lbs and I could no longer wear my wedding rings, or any rings for that matter.  They literally were falling off my fingers and it just wasnt worth losing them.  They are bonded together so a ring guard wouldnt work.  So I put them away. I hated not wearing my rings although I didnt wear them for several months.  I finally went to the jeweler a few weeks ago to have them sized.  Guess what size?   5  1/2.  Well, she wanted me get that size...but I was in disbelief and decided to bump to a 5  3/4.  I picked them up the other day and I am so excited to be wearing my rings again! 

The girl working there said it is crazy that my ring size changed that much, from an 8 to a 5  3/4.  Its amazing that I cant seem to lose any more fat or flub off my troubled stomach area but dont seem to have any problem losing it from my fingers!  But thats okay.  I will still call it a victory  :)  Skinny hands...I will take it!

Have a great night.

I've dropped almost an entire shoe size. Weird, right? I'd rather lose weight in my hips & thighs.

My rings are a size 10! When I had them sized, the looks I got were embarrassing. I can't wait to be a "normal" ring size.

Congratulations!! My rings are a size 8 right now, and I'm hoping to get down to a 6. What an inspiration!

Yay for skinny hands. Wherever you go now, just hold out your hand and say "Don't you just love my skinny hands?"

I know what you mean. My ankles are as tiny as my thumb touching my index figure around. Wish my gut would go down like that too. Smile.

I have the same ring issue - who knew you could lose so much weight in your fingers of all places?!? Very cool that you got yours resized and can wear them again. :)
