The Ring and Me
Wednesday, February 19, 2014
My aunt who passed away from cancer almost 7 years ago, gave me this ring when I was much younger. At the time, I was almost 300lbs and could barely fit it in on my pinky let alone any other finger. By the time I lost weight, she was already gone and didn’t see my progress. She was my best friend, my mentor and means the world to me.
Today, it fits wonderfully and is even a little big!
My aunt was the first person to put me on diets as a kid because she saw how morbidly obese I had become. At the time, it hurt, but now that I’m an adult I see what she was trying to do. She wanted to help me, she saw my potential. In a time in my life where I’ve gained some of the weight I originally lost, this non scale victory was a welcome sight.
I think she’d be proud of me today.
