first NSV achieved!

Ok. I was going to go to work right after I did that post but then something marvelous happened.

At least once a week (sometimes daily) since my son was born almost a year ago, I do this sad little routine of trying on my engagement ring. I had to take it off about 1/2 way through my pregnancy and I haven't been able to wear it since.

When I decided to get the band, I put "wear my engagement ring again" on my list of things to accomplish post-surgery. I've tried it on every day since surgery hoping that it would fit. Today, 5 days post surgery - I have had my first NSV!!! Check it out - yippeeeeeeee.


  1. Fantastic NSV... I can feel your excitement coming through.. and why not! It's just the start of wonderful things about to happen for you!

  2. So nice!!!!

    That is a great feeling. I wasn't able to fit into my mother's antique band for a long time and it's silly, but I felt really unfeminine, you know what I mean?

    Now my mother's ring is getting a little loose and I am thinking of wearing it on a chain. Pretty soon you'll have to think about getting your rings resized :-)

  3. Oh I meant to share this link with you. The tool I use is www.fitday.com.

    It's free and it was soooo helpful in helping me lose my first 70 lbs and now I am hoping it will help with the remaining 120 or so! I really didn't have a clue how big my portions sizes were until I saw how many calories I ate in a day. I like fitday because you can create custom foods and there are literally thousands of foods you can choose from to add up you calories, fat, carbs, fiber and protein for the day.
