    Well today, some of my rings dont fit me! I was a little annoyed about it (as I love my rings!!) but excited that now, its starting to come off. My trousers also kept falling down today when I walked around at work :eek::eek::eek:

    I think one of my goals is, 'for someone who doesnt know I am on a diet to come up to me and say 'wow you've lost weight'!! I dont know why, I think that will be really inspiring!

    Next week, Its my AAMW. I've got all the food ready. I'm excited but nervous about eating food again. :rolleyes::eek::D

    I have been able to put my engagment and eternity rings back on- were too tight befoe.
    I hope to move my other rings to smaller fingers as I shrink!!

    Hi Lillypop,
    I now have people approaching me at work/gym ( every couple of days now) saying " gosh you've lost SOME weight" "looking good...well done....look younger...." etc. Some of these are people I have never spoken to just smiled at in the corridor/gym.
    It is a GREAT feeling....however....I haven't told anyone I am on CD....so I feel a bit bad having to trot out my story of giving up bread/pasta/beige food due to a food intollerance.
    Whatever it takes not to get into a debate.....STILL FEELS GREAT THOUGH!! Puts a spring in my step!!
    XXXXXXXXXXXX
    Your time will come....enjoy!!

    Why don't you wait until you hit goal before you have them reduced and ask the jeweller to make a pair of earrings or a pendent out of the excess gold? That way you will always have that bit of jewellery to remind you of your huge achievement!

    I think it's a good excuse to treat yourself to a special new ring when you reach goal. ;)

    I havent been able to wear my wedding ring at all for about 2 years, and on and off a further 5 years not all due to weight gain, I also have arthritis so my fingers tend to swell with that too. Dont know if even if I get good weight loss if I will ever be able to wear it all the time. After all I was less than 8 stone when I got married my starting weight was about 6 st heavier than that

    BUT on day 6 of CD and I noticed on day 4 that my watch was swinging around my wrist so yay!!
