Even my fingers are shrinking!

I literally can't wear my rings anymore because they are falling off. And now I can finally wear some of my old rings that my fingers had gotten too big for. Yay!

It was so sad when I tried on my favorite rings (back then, ~50 lbs ago) and they didn't fit. Like at all. Especially when I was dating my ex and he asked why I didn't wear my ring anymore.

So now I have to get my rings resized! Have any of you noticed your fingers getting smaller? I can't remember which blog, but awhile ago I read that someone had lost so much weight, even her shoes didn't fit anymore! I kinda hope (and doubt) that doesn't happen to me for the whole financial aspect, but pretty cool when you see everything getting smaller.

Attitude of Gratitude: I bought myself a very pretty blue topaz ring (like the one in the pic) this past summer and got the warranty, so now I can get it resized for free.

Yay on the finger shrinking!! I am in the same boat at the moment...my wedding rings don't fit now, so I have to wear another one as my ring. I thought about resizing but I think I am going to wait a little longer...until I am where I want to be.

Keep going!!!! You are doing great!!

Kristen said...

OMG. This is my life. Both Jay and I have lost so much weight that our wedding rings don't stay on our fingers anymore. Jay has dropped his in the parking lot, under the seat in the car, and even in a urinal. That was one of the "side effects" of weight-loss we NEVER anticipated!

woohoo!! that's awesome, I have noticed my shoes getting too big :)

Brilliant! I don't wear any rings so haven't noticed exactly this....but I used to look at my hands and wrists and hate how very fat they looked. This post has really given me encouragement that having slim, elegant fingers may be an option. I tell you what.....I'm off to my "Zero List' page and I'm going to add buying a lovely ring to wear!. You are an inspiration

Awesome! My fingers have gotten smaller, too! I have to be really careful because my wedding ring will slip off of my finger. I really need to get it resized.

My fingers were the first place I noticed when I started losing weight.

Yes everything gets smaller. I was shocked about the shoes. Sorry to tell you that there is no way I can wear some of the shoes that I was wearing when I was at my heaviest. But really, would I want to be 244lbs again so I can wear those shoes? You know the answer....lol. HELL NO!!!
Keep up the good work, the positives of getting healthy and fit so heavily outweigh the negatives there is no question.

Yes Yes Yes. Its so funny but I have always hated my fat hands and sausage fingers. I have noticed as I lose weight my rings are loose and they need to be resized. Its quite amazing - I always though I was stuck with sausage fingers forever but things like this give me hope that I don't have to live with sausage fingers and thunder thighs for the rest of my life.

Well, when you lose weight, other parts of your physique will likewise shrink. I think that shouldn’t stop one from wearing their accessories – especially ones that symbolize your love and commitment. Anyway, I hope everything is going great with regard to your weight-loss journey. I wish you all the best!
