So, I have been trying, for the last couple of weeks, to eat better and get healthier. It has been going pretty well (I still a long way to go!) and I am encouraged.
I have set a few milestones for myself along the way, things that will help encourage me and keep me motivated. I know it's a long road ahead, but I hope that if I am able to hit the marks along the way, I will stay the path and continue to try.
So, my first milestone is to start wearing my wedding ring again.
Geoff and I don't wear our rings. I don't know Geoff's story (he would probably say that he just forgets, but I think it interferes with his ability to pick up girls. :), but mine is pretty basic.
Our wedding rings are exactly the same. They are heavy and thick. When I was wearing it all the time, it actually forced my baby finger out, so that it no longer rested against my other finger. When I was in my last month or so of my pregnancy with Sawyer, I took the ring off, so that my hands and fingers, which are already short and stubby, wouldn't swell abnormally large, and I wouldn't have to cut the ring off. And since, then, more or less, I haven't worn it since.
A couple of times, I tried it back on. But since the nice little groove it had worn in my finger had been lost, it really didn't fit comfortably. And then, after a while, it just didn't fit at all. My fingers were too big. So, it has been sitting in a cup, collecting dust.
