How to safeguard my ring during weight loss

Losing weight (over 225 to under 210) and I'd like to lose more. I already feel my wedding ring is loose. I don't want to lose it. I don't want to get it adjusted at a jeweler. 1. I don't really trust our local jeweler. 2. Looking more for a reversible option. The ideal answer would involve something like, "here's where you buy this great gadget that fits over your ring and it comes in various sizes. Thanks for your time.

"Muscle weighs twice as much as fat"

I'm working out, particularly around the torso, and I'm much stronger. My waistline hasn't budged. My weight has barely changed since I started going to the Y and doing 20 minutes of cardio a day plus lifting weights. Loving wife says that's because I'm building muscle, and "muscle weighs twice as much as fat." What's truly going on?

Finding the one (BMI calculator that is)

A while ago, I saw this great BMI calculator that had accompanying picture of simulating body which, through a slider (?) could change from "fat" to "muscular". I found that I could reproduce fairly accurately the shape of my body (including the dreaded fat bulges...) with it and found it much more useful to see what I should target for. Unfortunately I can't find it again amongst the morass ... Surely AskMeFi sleuths can find it!
