Philippians 3:12-14 (The Message Bible)

I'm not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don't get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back.

It figures...I lose weight and it comes from my fingers instead of my butt!


Now that the weather has gotten colder and my hands are cold all the time, my wedding ring is just WAY too big. It actually falls off if I turn my hand down and shake it gently! So....off went the big diamond and on went the plain, solid gold band we bought almost 11 years ago (because I actually THOUGHT that is what I wanted as my wedding band!!! Crazy!) What's encouraging about this is that that band has always been small and even back then (11 years ago when I was skinny) it was very uncomfortable to wear because it was so snug. But yesterday when I slipped off my diamond ring and slipped it on...it just slid right on! It's never been this loose on my finger. Hooray. Just a small reminder that I AM shrinking my body, even if it IS from my fingers!! ha ha Of course, I will either get my real ring sized or buy a spacer thingy very soon so I can wear it again...but I just thought I'd share this small peice of "victory" with y'all.

Good for you! And thanks for the reminder to get my ring sozed down. If the rest of by body was as slim as my neck, fingers, and wrist, I'd be all set :) Apparently, I am small-boned, I just have to dig somethimes to find the bones - heehee.

Congratulations!!!
My ring has been to big for years, and even with the spacer, in the winter it spins around on my finger and about falls off constantly...But I went to my jeweler about 4 years ago and talked to them about sizing it, but i couldn't afford it at the time, so they put a real gold spacer on it for FREE! (it's still on! LOL!)
