As of today, I have lost 23 lbs. since mid-September and 33 lbs. since my “high” weight mid-July. The “happy” problem? My rings are getting loose! Lucky I have big knuckles, so I don’t think I will lose them and it doesn’t seem to affect my wedding band too much but last night I wore my engagement ring as well to a Christmas party and the darn thing “spins” around. I have 7 lbs. left and am wondering if I might have to get my rings resized?
BTW – here is a pic of me from a week ago in my first pair of “skinny” jeans ever!

Congrats on the weight loss! You look amazing!
As for your rings, I’d wait until you hit your goal weight and then have them resized.

Congrats! 🙂 I’d wait to get them resized until those last 7 lbs are gone–you never know how skinny your fingers will get.

Congrats on the weight loss! If the rings are still tight over your knuckles, you might not be able to have them fitted too much without being unable to take them on and off. I would wait until you have lost all your weight to decide.

Definitely wait to get your rings resized. Also, it’s colder right now so your fingers are smaller. Your fingers are always a little bigger during the summer when it’s hot, so I would wait until then to get them resized.
Awesome job on your weight loss!!!

Awesome resources on there and it’s FREE! They don’t put you only any specific diet – it’s centered on lifestyle changes. You input your information and goals and they come up with a calorie range to shoot for. Like they let me have between 1500 and 1850 calories a day and gave me ranges of protein, fat, and carbohydrates to shoot for. I think what’s doing it for me is exercising every day even if it is just 30 minutes of Pilates. The other biggie is tracking everything I eat. They have an awesome database of foods added to by all the members. Spark Recipes have a ton of recipes and even a recipe calculator where you can input the ingredients of your own recipes and get the nutrtional info. I love Spark People!

Congratulations, you look great! Maybe you could get a temporary sizer for your rings (they’re like little plastic thingies that make them fit a little more snugly) and then once your weight is steady, get them resized by your jeweler.

Congratulations on your weight loss!! I agree with other who say to reach your goal and then get them sized, but I worry about you loosing your rings!! What about putting something on them so they won’t spin/fall off?

if your rings are too big on your fingers but not your knuckles, have a jeweler insert some sizing balls. that way it will still fit over your knuckle but won’t spin around.

Congrats on the weight loss! That’s really great!
Go to your jeweler and ask them to put on a temporary ring sizer. They have metal sizing clips that just wrap around the shank of the ring. That way you can put off resizing it for a while until you lose the rest of the weight you want to lose.

Thanks for the great ideas! I never heard of sizing balls before – kinda sounds like a neat hobby! LOL
