My rings are too large. This began about four months ago after losing 50 pounds. I initially switched my engagement ring to the inside so the wedding band, which was a tad bit tighter, would prevent it from flying off my hand.

I actually had that experience. I reached into the washer to move clothing to the dryer when my engagement ring flew off my hand. I was able to quickly located it, but knew that I needed to come up with a solution.
That's when I moved it behind my wedding band. That's how I fix things, as simple as possible. Plus, I don't want to have my ring sized too often as I'm afraid it may weaken the band making a bigger problem. Since I'm not done losing weight yet (although my recent eating habits may have something else to say about that) I'm trying to hold out until I'm done or close to done (hopefully sometime in 2010).
Since then I realized I needed a better fix. A friend recommended "ring buddies" (I tried to find these to link to them, but had no luck) which I found a package of at Wal-Mart for $3. These are a small piece of plastic that attaches to the back of the ring which makes your ring one size smaller.
The ring buddy has allowed me to move my engagement ring back to the outside, but it is still loose and will probably have to move back inside soon.
And at this point I'm sure you are all thinking, do you have a point and if not, why am I still reading this? Well, I don't really have a point. And I'm sorry you have spent the last 3.5 minutes reading this.
However, I just thought I would share a small segment into the life of a woman who has last 87.8 pounds. Now I just need to wire my mouth shut so I can try to lose 12.2 more by Thanksgiving to hit my goal of 100 pounds total lost by Turkey Day.
