I lost 40 pounds and went from a 7 to a 5.75.  Though I will say part of that was in part due to the weather.  When it’s hotter out your fingers swell and when its colder out they go back down.  Something to think about when you get it re-sized…

Get a temporary band in the meantime. You’ll probably know when the time is right to get the permanent size.

You can still get an eternity band but get it with a sizing band build in.  Here’s a picture of my e-ring & my wedding band… both of which have a sizing band:

You would never know it’s there from the outer view of my set:

i don’t know anything about sizing bars, but just a thought for a different solution….what if you get a plain band for now, and then, when you meet your weight loss goal, buy the eternity band in the correct size. it could serve as great motivation for your weight loss and what a nice way to reward yourself–with diamonds!! and if you’d like to still have the band you got married with on your finger, you can take the plain band to a jeweler, have them melt it down, and use the same metal to make a new eternity ring.

My Ritani ring has a sizing bar like @knikolle.  It’s probably about 1/2 a centimeter on the band.  It makes sizing a lot easier but my ring still looks like a full eternity band.  The one problem is that it’s still hard to make an eternity ring perfectly round when you size it down.  Many jewelers are reluctant to do it, so you may want to get a stand-in ring until you’re close to your goal weight (and ring size).

Whoops!  I didn’t see that you directed a question to me until now.  I think it depends on who makes the ring.  Mine was also a Ritani & came with a sizing band without my requesting it. When we looked at wedding bands in a different city I was told I could request one.  The band is approximately 1/2 centimeter across (maybe a little more narrow) and the ring itself is a size 6 & 1/2. 

I hadn’t previously heard of what MrsBeth mentioned but I would talk to a reputable jeweler before buying any ring… maybe several just to get different points of view.  I remember asking how neccessary it would be and was definitely advised to get a sizing band if I went with an eternity band. My mother’s ring size has increased by 1/2 in 20+ years so I am assuming that mine may eventually change as well.

Best of luck to you.
