I usually weight 135lb. and am 5’2″. I stepped on the scale yesterday (after the last month and a half of holiday yumminess) and weighed in at 146lb. I decided to go ahead and get serious about getting back to my regular size (and regular clothes). I would like to my it down to about 125-127lb for summer. That got me wondering, how much weight to change ring sizes? My current ring size is 5.5.

I honestly have no clue! I have been wearing a size 7 since I was 12. I have certianly put on weight since then!
But recently (yah know when I got my new ring) my size 7 ring is loose! When we got my wedding band I didn’t tell them my ring size I just tried some on & the one I got fit. I think its a 6.50-6.75. Not totally for sure though but my size 7 e-ring is big on me!
I went and weighed my self and normally I am 120-123 & I weigh 113. (I have been REALLY sick since Thanksgiving & think I am getting acid reflex. 🙁 So I have been loosing weight. BUT like I said when I was 12 I weighed like 90 pounds and wore a 7. So IDK! I am clueless! LOL

My sister lost over 100 pounds and her ring size went down 2 sizes. My aunt has lost close to 90 and she still has the same ring size.

@burris4: Everyone loses weight differently. Some may lose it in their legs, butt, stomach, face… so many places. You may not have any change in the size of your fingers though. I will point out that if you eat less salt and other things that can bloat you, the size of your hands and feet may decrease.

I have heard it is one full size for every 40-50 pounds. But it can vary a LOT because we all gain and lose differently.

I have lost ~35 pounds and my ring size hasn’t changed. Which is really too bad, because I hate my hands, I have such round porky fingers

I think it depends on the person. Personally, I’ve lost about 20 lb. since I bought my e-ring and it’s now so loose on me that I’m afraid to wear it. But a friend of mine has gained 30+ lb. over the last year and her size 4 ring still fits perfectly.

I think also certain builds…like long and skinny fingers versus shorter ‘stubier”. I’ve always had thin wrists and long skinny fingers & toes whether im 40 pounds over weight or 20 pounds under weight the ring size stays similar. For me the biggest changer is water weight ( low carb dieting) and cold weather!

I’ve been the same ring size since I started wearing rings in highschool. I currently weigh 90 ponds more than my miniature figures skater days and still a size 6 finger.

I don’t have any help for you….I’ve recently gained weight and my ring is looser than it was (I think just because of the cold weather)!

I think it depends on the person. I lost 35-ish lbs (I was 160 I’m now 123) and I went down a size from a 5.5 to a size 4.5

I lost 20 pounds and went down a ring size. I agree that it depends on the person. People lose weight in all different areas. =]
