Today is day 284 of my on track streak!

I'm celebrating another NSV!

In 2007, hubby surprised me with a beautiful wedding and engagement ring. Nothing huge or fancy, but it meant the world to me, because it was the first wedding and engagement ring set I ever had! This is my second marriage (my first husband was killed by a drunk driver) but I've never had an engagement ring or wedding ring before.

Anyway, hubby was so proud when he presented me with the rings back in 2007, and I was really touched. I wore those rings with pride...but then I started gaining weight, and the rings got tighter and tighter. Eventually it got to the point where I just couldn't wear them anymore, because they were so tight that it hurt! So I sadly put the rings in my jewelry box. I could tell hubby was hurt and disappointed that I had to stop wearing them....and I felt very ashamed of myself.

In March, when I started my streak, one of the things I most looked forward to was the day when I would be able to wear those rings again. I started trying them on once a month or so, and always felt a bit disappointed when they just didn't fit. At first, I couldn't even get them back on my finger at all. But as time went by, I was able to squeeze them back on, but they were still just too tight for me to wear them comfortably.



The last time I tried them on was at the end of October, and they ALMOST fit. I was tempted to wear them, but I knew they'd just cut off my circulation! So I reluctantly put them back in the jewelry box.



Well, I guess you know where this is going, right? This morning I decided to try the rings on again...and they fit! They fit perfectly! Not too tight at all! I can wear them comfortably, and I think they look darn good on me! So that is my NSV for today...I can wear my rings again!

I actually had another NSV. When hubby saw that I was wearing the rings, his face lit up. He looked so happy, and so proud of me! Seeing that look of pride on his face just made my day!

    Awesome!!
I almost got to the point of having to stop wearing my ring, too. I was SO ashamed to ask my boyfriend to have it resized (I wasn't working so we said we'd do it when we had the money). I'm not sure when it happen, but its been fitting better. No circulation cutting emoticon
