I am so happy! I've been married for going on 32 years this year and for the last 15 or so years, my engagement ring (size 4 3/4), my wedding ring (size 5), and my 10-year anniversary ring (size 5 1/2) have not fit! Today, they all do! :carrot: :broc: :cb: You should have seen my husband's face light up when I showed him my hand! :D (

So exciting!! I have stopped wearing my gorgeous engagement ring because its too tight, down to the single wedding band. Can't wait to get it back on!!

Congrats! Such a touching story! :)

Aw, thanks everyone!!! :grouphug:

Congrats! After seeing that inspiring picture, I have decided to set that as one of my goals, so thank you! My husband has offered to get them up-sized, but I'd rather down-size and be able to wear them again!

Awesome! :carrot:

Awesomeness! I've not made it down to my original by three progressively small inexpensive rings I've worn over the years.

I've been wondering when I'll finally lose weight in my fingers. I was losing hope that it would happen at all or that I'd have to be at "goal".

Also can't see it in my face yet. I just read where someone said it wasn't till 45 pounds so I guess that'll happen for me eventually, too.

I did fit into a pair of 14 Gap trousers today which amazed me. I was only trying them on to see about the hem. Had no idea I could actually get them on my body. Didn't look great but as long as I cover the waistband and don't tuck, I'd wear them in public (once I get them hemmed).

That is brilliant. What a powerful symbol of your weight loss achievement.

Thank you all so much! :thanks:

Psav, it's my favorite site, lol!

JennyT, bluegingham, USMCvet, and Mad_Donnelly, your rings will eventually fit you too! I thought maybe my knuckle had gotten too big over the years, but no. Even though it didn't really look like it, there was weight around my knuckle stopping the rings from going on, and once I lost that weight, they slipped on. Now, just 11 days later, they actually slide around my finger like they used to! It's exciting to be wearing them again. And my husband still sometimes just takes my hand, looks at them, and starts smiling again, and that's a really great feeling! :)

Moving Forward

What a touching NSV! Congrats!

After losing my weight, I'm smaller than when I was married. I shook my hands hard recently to get water off of them. Both my wedding and engagement rings went flying off my hands across the room. It took me awhile to find one of them. At my heaviest, I would need soap to get my rings off.

That is wonderful. Mine hasn't fit since shortly after my son was born. He's 19 now....
