Id just go to walmart and get a pack of those ring sizers tp keep it tight till you are at your goal then size your ring.

Just dropping in to say good luck to you!

I’m in the same boat (trying to lose a bunch of weight), although my ring is super plain so can get sized a ton if needs be.

sway0060:  I’ve lost about 39-40 pounds so far. When I started out, I was a size 8, with my rings sized at an 8.5. (I can’t stand for them to be tight.) Now, I’m around a size 7. I still have quite a long way to go until I reach my total weight loss goal.

Because of the type of setting I have, I can’t take my ring size up and down very often. It’s too easy for the setting framework to get bent out of shape, which will lead to lost stones. So, I had my jeweler put a sizing bump/hump into the bottom for now. I’m hoping that will be enough to last me until I get to my final goal. And then my jeweler will work with me to see if my ring can be resized.

Funny enough, I had my original wedding band stretched just a little bit when I was still a size 8. It’s an eternity, with a metal design all the way around it, so it can’t be sized easily. Now, it’s actually too big for my left hand. Argh. >.O

Good luck on your weight loss!
