Since about February this year I haven't been able to wear any of my rings because they are too big. They have been sitting in a drawer. I didn't want to get them re-sized because I suspected that I would gain weight again after the competition and "grow back" into them.
It is now over 6 months since I have worn my rings and although I am the same scale weight as I was when I started comp prep, the rings remain too big. I have missed out on 6 months of admiring my pretty diamonds every day.
Yesterday I took them all to the jewelers to get made smaller. It seems like such a small step but it is quite scary for me. But what is the worst that can happen? My fingers get fatter and I have to get them made bigger again? Would that be the end of the world?
What is the best thing that can happen? My rings fit perfectly, I enjoy my diamonds again and I am reminded that I am smaller than I once was. A new truth to adopt and grow with.
Now if only it wasn't going to take 2 weeks to get them back ...
