Have you ever seen the movie “The Incredibly Shrinking Woman” with Lily Tomlin? Remember the scene where her wedding ring falls off her finger and she is realizing that she is indeed shrinking? I had a moment similar to that today, but I’m not shrinking in height, only from losing fat.
I went to the restroom and as I was washing my hands in the sink, my ring fell off my finger and into the sink. That has never happened before. I dried my hands and put it on my middle finger which is thicker than my ring finger and it actually fit. I took it off and put it on my other ring finger on my right hand and it fit, which was weird because my right hand ring finger is thicker than my left hand ring finger, and my ring fit on it as snug as it has been on my left ring finger all this time. That confirms to me that not only am I losing fat in my body, but also my hands too.
This is good, in a way, but it also means that I’m going to have to start shopping for a new ring lol. My ring represents my love for my partner, and although he didn’t buy it for me, it means the same to me as a wedding ring means to a person who is married. It had 2 cubic zirconia diamonds that have both fallen out, it was a $20 ring so I didn’t expect them to stay in lol. It also says “forever love” with the diamond in between the words on both sides.
I’ve only lost 25lbs in the last 2 months and I wasn’t expecting my fingers to shrink at all. I’ve been so used to chubby fingers all these years that I thought they were always that thick. It never even occurred to me that my fingers gained fat since my hands didn’t gain any fat.
Anyway, glad this new healthy lifestyle is paying off. I can’t wait to be skinny again.
