Default Confusing NSV....

Ok so...my engagement ring is loose. Which is weird, because my fiancé took a ring I wore in high school when I was much thinner to use as a template for my current ring band size. It was snug when I got it last month (August 15th) and now it kind of flops about when I move my hand, but still doesn't come off on it's own so I'm not resizing it yet, but it looks like I might have to at some point....

Yay for smaller hands....erm I guess?

My January Daily Weigh In!

Goal 1: 210lbs (20lbs lost) (Sept 21st 2012)
Goal 2: 199lbs (onederland!)
Goal 3: 196lbs (no longer obese!)
Goal 4: 180lbs (weight I was when I met my fiance)
Goal 5: 164lbs (normal BMI)
Goal 6: 150lbs (final goal weight)

I'm having the same issue (excuse my non-20-something-ness for barging in here, hehe). I got married at 145 pounds, yet my wedding and engagement ring are loose now (about 18-20 lbs heavier).

But yes! Yay for smaller hands!

Yep - I'm actually able to gauge where I am with water weight/bloating when my rings are tight. lol

My wedding band is actually a 1/2 size smaller than my engagement ring and they are both loose now!

This is my favorite NSV so far! I haven't resized my rings yet and I love rattling them against each other!

I lost 40 lbs between Nov 2010 and Nov 2011 doing low-sugar for my "50 Pounds in 50 Weeks" project. I bounced halfway back up so I'm back for more!

Congrats! but make sure you get it resized as soon as you can! One of my best friends lost her grandmother's engagement ring after some noticeable finger shrinkage. Oof.

I don't have a wedding ring but I have the same issue with my watch.

I've always had small wrists but now they are so small that the watch is massive even on the tightest setting. Might have to invest in a children's watch at some point!

Might want to get them resized. I lost mine. I was washing dishes at work and my ring was a bit on the loose side. Didn't want to get it resized. Well.. a little soap, some water and that baby went right down the industrial drain -sigh-

When I was in high school, my class ring was an 8.5. I weigh 30-40lbs more than I did then, and I wear a 6 or 6.5. Crazy!

If you don't want to get it resized just yet, you can always order Ring Snuggies. I'm FINALLY getting mine done this weekend, but the Snuggies have worked just fine up to this point to keep that bad boy from slipping off my finger.
