A Small Milestone~



Just wanted to share a little something......





My husband,Leo and I will be married 40 years come this November. Well on our 35th anniversary he got me a beautiful 2 carat Anniversary Ring !!!
(similar to the one pictured here)
About 1 year or so later it was to tight to wear :( and I refused to get it enlarged .
Now that I have lost 10.5lbs I can wear it again !! Yeah!!! I was so happy last night when I tried it on and it fit again . I know to others this is not a big thing but to me it HUGE!! It only makes me want to stay the course and get rid of the extra fat and to be healthy............

Just found your blog this a.m. and Yes! it is a wonderful thing and a great morale booster that your gorgeous ring can be in its rightful place! I know where you are coming from as my ongoing battle with pounds does the same thing...I love to garden & cook and everything tastes so fresh right now. Congratulations on 40 years together. We just reached 43 years on 8/20! Your candid words about yourself are a joy to read. Thanks for sharing. Have a good weekend.

Wow your weight loss is inspiring, I'm also a walker, every AM, (Its so darn hot here in NE Fl, I begin my walking at 6:30 AM to beat the heat). That is so great that your beautiful ring that your wonderful hubby gave to you fits again!
Blessings,
