Default Two simple NSVs for me

This morning my husband hugged me goodbye as he always does. Then he says, Hmmm you are really getting smaller, I can fit my arms all the way around you now with room to spare.

Then the other night, I was twisting my wedding ring and it came off. I haven't been able to get this thing off in 10 years since we married. Its like a size 5 ring and when we bought it, it was tight!!

Thanks! I watch my calories and gave up most fast food and sugar. So far I've lost 41 pounds since April 28th. No photos yet, too embarrassed and I don't really see the difference. I know that sounds strange but its sooo hard to see anything but me at 200 since I was there for a few years!! I'll post some pictures when I reach my first goal and let everyone decide.

woohoo! I just read your other post about your driver's license, too! Sounds like you are really doing great!! I can't wait to be able to get my wedding ring off, my DH just doesn't get why (like he is offended or something), but to me it would be such a NSV. I haven't been able to get it off in about 6 months or so and it really bugs me. I check just about every other day

Congrat's on the great NSV's. I had stopped wearing my weddings rings for about 2 yrs. Was planning to have them resized. Now I can wear them and they are looser than ever. Love the NSV with the DH too, that sure makes you feel good.

This is a GREAT victory! When I was pregnant with DD I had preeclamsia and my hands and feet grew to about 3X their regualr size. I took my ring off then and haven't had it on since (8 months ago). I was really thin when I got married and wonder if it will ever go back on...I wear it on a chain for now. Can't wait until that's one of my NSV's!!!

That's great! Those men can sure be sweet sometimes, huh?

I'm wearing a ring much like your wedding ring! Not long ago I had to soap it up to get it off my finger, and now I'm wondering when I'll have to stop wearing it or get it resized so I don't lose it! It comes off so easily.

Congrsts! You're doing great...keep it up!
