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.
