In the last 14 months, and a day or two, I've lost 122 pounds. And counting. This blog is an attempt to answer the almost daily question: How Did You Do That?

Better than a skirt fitting!

 Last week I had the fabulous experience of trying on a skirt that had been too small for me, I mean WAY too small.  And it fit perfectly.  What a thrill that is! 

For the past few weeks my wedding band has been falling off.  Now, this is a cheap replacement wedding band I had gotten when my original got tight and uncomfortable.  I was going to have to have it re-sized, or something, and really did not want to do that on a ring that probably isn't worth it.  First though, I started looking through my boxes and drawers, and amazingly enough, I found my original wedding band. 

I was delighted to have found it, but scared to put it on.  I knew it would be too small and not fit.  Steeling my courage, I slipped it on my finger.  Oh, my gosh!!!  It fits!  That was even more thrilling and incredible than having my skirt fit.  I can't tell you what it feels like to be wearing my "real" wedding ring again.  It is so wonderful.


  1. Beautiful!

    Next stop: That belly-dancing thing from 1979. Still got it?

  2. Oh, I wish I did! I loved that costume. You remember that???

  3. Yes. I remember. Had all those coins all over it. Not the first time I thought one of my sisters was hawt, either.
