For those who wear wedding rings and who have lost significant weight -- how did you handle your ring getting loose?   

I'm worried that one day soon my rings will just fall off. I love wearing them but might have to stop until I stabilize... and that might not be for a year or two.

This has happened to me, I can't wear my wedding ring anymore and have also shrunk below one set of silicon rings.

My plan is to wait until I'm a year stable and then get my initial ring re-sized (I get one free resize). If I shrink / grow beyond that it's sell the original and get something much cheaper than I did in the first place (pre-MMM and still 'only' $500... those last 2 words hurt to say post-MMM turnaround).

I am not that attached to my wedding band, to me it's a symbol of my marriage so a new metal one, or the $2 silicon one I replaced it with for now means the same thing to me.

Monthly update for September:

11/26/2017     253.4
12/31/2017     242.6
01/31/2018     234.8
02/28/2018     224.8
03/31/2018     220.0
04/29/2018     214.4
05/31/2018     209.4
06/30/2018     206.2
07/28/2018     201.6      27.4% BF
08/31/2018     193.8      25.7% BF
09/29/2018     191.2      25.1% BF

September started with an overseas business trip during which it was more difficult to maintain my routine, and I was generally more sloppy with my diet during the rest of the month. So only 2.6 pounds lost, but it's still progress and I will try to re-commit myself in October.

Shockingly, I've got a positive update to share! :-) I've lost about four pounds in September. I typically struggle when I travel for work - the jet lag, the social events/drinking, disruption to my working out/sleeping schedule, and general fatigue when I return. However, this time, due to some stomach issues I'm trying to resolve, I've been avoiding dairy, as well as training for a half marathon. My half marathon training as been admittedly half assed, but I have been running more than usual.   

We're heading to Hawaii around Thanksgiving, so I'd like to lose another four pounds. I need to up my strength training, continue with my diet changes, and keep up the running. After the half is done, I'd like to focus on the 3-5 mile run, consistently being able to run with no walking, even on hilly terrain

Jan 30:  178
Feb 12:  174
March 4: 173.2
April 1:  169.5
May 1: 168.5
June 1: 166
Sept 1: 164

Oct 1: 158 (ish, realistically. Scale read a bit lower but I don't believe it.)

This is a process of just recommitting over and over again. A long slog.
