Default Wedding rings fit after 15 years!

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! You should have seen my husband's face light up when I showed him my hand!

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!

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).
