What to do when wedding ring is too loose after losing weight?

I've lost about 20 lbs and now my wedding ring is very loose. I still have another 50lbs to lose. I afraid if I get my ring resized too many times it won't look good anymore, or that it just can't be done more than once. Are there any spacers, like rubber bands that fit under the ring to make it fit better?
I'm sure lots of men and women have the same problem. My husband needs his ring resized too, but his ring has an intricate pattern all the way around.

oh how I wish this was me doing the original posting! Congratulations! Try wrapping yarn around the bottom of the ring.

In the past I have seen small plastic or rubber things that fit onto the bottom side of the ring to make it fit better without resizing. Unfortunatley I have no idea where to buy them now. You could try calling a local jewler to see if they have anything similar, or looking on the internet might be successful. Sorry I'm not much help with specifics, but I do know that such things are available.

And congratulations on your weightloss so far!

I've been told by my jewler that a ring can be resized as many times as you need it to. She said she does hers twice a year. If you have a decent jewler I don't think resizing your ring should be a problem. Congrats on your weight loss!

Ring size

Congratulations on your success.
How about if you and your husband go to the jewlery store together and pick out similar bands that match so you can hold the originals on the finger. It is kind of like getting married again but without the stress and the cake!
Sweet thoughts to you and your hubby.

I wrap tape around mine (the scotch transparent tape), and replace it periodically. I'm in the same fix you are - only mine is an interlocking design, and resizing it will definitely cause 'issues'.

I may see about getting a new band once I'm at my target and stay there.
