In September 2008, my (then) boyfriend proposed. The ring was a size 8, and I'd recently lost ~50lbs, so it had to be sized down to a 6. I joked that it was the only time in my life I'd ever worn a size 6 of anything. Then we got married in June 2009 and both my engagement ring and my wedding band fit perfectly, still at a size 6.
Then, I gained weight,
and I haven't been able to wear either of my rings for the last couple of months. They were just slightly too tight to be comfortable, and I considered asking my husband to have them sized larger as a Valentine's Day gift so that I could wear them again.
BUT... Now they fit again! The scale hasn't moved for me yet, but I know my clothes are getting looser and apparently my fingers are starting to lose some of their original sausage-ness. Yay!
It's the small things, isn't it? They keep me going...
