I was sitting at lunch today with a table full of ladies and one, whom I don't know well but who is a new member of my Soroptimist group commented on how my rings were loose and that she wanted to admire my diamond. I held my hand up as the diamond was on the palm side, having had gravity pulled it down. She asked if I had lost weight since I was married.
Now, since I have lost the weight my rings have been very loose and I have considered having them resized..but her question got me to thinking. You know, I haven't lost weight since I was married. Now, granted, I was 5 months pregnant with my son at the time...but I got the engagement ring well before that. So I am thinking that it is really a matter of a change in body composition. My theory is that I probably actually weigh about the same as I did when I was married, but I am betting that my fat percentage is much less. I bet I have much more muscle now and much less fat although my weight is about the same, this would explain why my rings are so loose.
I think my water intake is better now and I dont think I was retaining water before...never really had any health or weight issues back then.
Anyway, I think that is the story of the loose rings. Less fat. It's all good!
