Yolanda9179's Journal, 28 October 2013

Good Morning all! I'm exhausted, so much for resting up on weekends. I have some exciting news that I forgot to share with everyone. Taking advice from my friend K about getting wedding rings resized after a substantial loss, I headed up to the jewelry store on Saturday. I'm down a whole ring size! It's funny because we are always talking about our jean size or shirt size, but I never imagined dropping ring sizes lol. My fingers are bringing sexy back! Can't wait to get them back though, I feel naked without them on.

I went to the gym yesterday and killed It on the elliptical. Also got my grass mowed for the last time this year. Pretty productive. Today I'll be on the precor for cardio and then strength training. I would like to really own the scale this week. I resisted the urge to weigh in this morning because I don't want to be disappointed.

Going to give it my all and we will see what we get :-)

Have a great day everyone!!

You definitely know you're losing if you're down a ring size. Good for you!! Keep up the good work!

I would assume that a loss in ring size is all fat too :) That has to be a great motivational tool. Have a great day!

How wonderful to feel so good about all the ways that you can see that your dedication is paying off. As for the scale I am very glad I don't have one at home that would taunt me, weighing once a month at the dietitian's office is good enough for me because everyday is different and that means good days and not so great days. Who needs the guilt trip especially when you know how hard you are working to make your goal? I am very happy for you and have another great day!

My upsized ring for when I got fat now turns on my finger all the time. Can't wait till I can wear the other ring that we didn't resize. (we both have two wedding rings. One for work when we worked with machinery(plain band) and the other with diamond). Glad to hear that you followed my advice of my hubby's falling off his hand. I think that your hands react to water weight more than the rest of your body.

Great news on the losing front!!! I know what you mean about the ring size. I had to have my wedding ring cut off. I had started to have some problems getting my engagement ring on and off, so I left it off and put it in a drawer. I left on the wedding band, and it got so tight, it started cutting off the circulation!! I had the hubby cut it off. I finally got the engagement ring back on a week or so ago!! I think the hubs is going to get me a new one for either Christmas, or our anniversary next year. I think I'd like to wait till next year, with the added weight loss!!! Have a great day and keep up the great work!!

Pumakitten...I used to work in a jewelry store. You can have cut off rings put back together (unless you don't have it anymore). We used to cut them off people and then send them in to be resized or whatever. That is what they do when they size them down or up. They cut them and then put them back together either with less or more of the metal used to make the ring.
