    @Honey-Bee:  Yes!  It definitely will.  But of course it depends on how much total weight you lose.

    I lost about 20 pounds (from 140 to 120) and my ring size did not change.

    I lost about 30 pounds after getting my e- ring. When I got measured for my e- ring I ended up with a 6.25. I just took it in to get resized and they had to take it down to a 5.25. I probably could have had it made smaller but chose to leave it just in case my fingers swell this summer.

    I’ve lost 50 pounds and my Grandma’s ring that didn’t fit my finger is now too loose on it so I would say at least 2 sizes lost.

    I guess I’m the exception.  I have gained 40# since getting engaged (shhhh) and my finger size is still the same.

    When I left high school we got a school graduation ring (which I promptly lost, boo) and I was sized as a P (7 1/2) for my right hand ring finger.

    90 lbs lost & almost 10 years later… my engagement ring is a K (5 1/4)!  And I’ve ordered a K for the RHR that’s almost arrived too.  

    My main problem is the extra skin that’s left.  My ring’s actually a tad slippery and could probably go down a little bit, but I can barely get it over my knuckle at the moment 🙁

    This was before I got engaged, but I have a RHR that was resized to half a size smaller after I lost 20 lbs.

    With my first engagement, I needed an 8.

    Now, I’m a 7.

    I’ve lost about 50 pounds and should get my ring resized – right now it’s a 7 3/4 but last time I was in a jewelry store and playing with the sizing rings, I fit a 5 3/4. I’m still losing weight though, so I don’t want to do anything until I’m finished. And ever then, I might just size it down a little and put in a sizing bridge. I’m afraid resizing it too much will change the look of my ring. I’ve got a 3/4 eternity band. I guess I’ll find out eventually….

    Went gluten free earlier last year and dropped 12lbs of bloat by New Years and ring size went down a full size. Coworker started pilates six months ago, dropped about 7lbs I believe she said and her ring loosened a half size.

    My ring size went down but I lost over 120lbs. I was a 7-7.5 and now I’m barely a 5.
