I started yesterday's post on remodeling with the intent to go somewhere further, but after all my science-y explanations ran their course, I decided to stop while I was ahead.
So in an infinitely less detailed and more materialistic fashion, the flip side of my Gemini heritage will explain what I also meant about remodeling...
When I started Medifast, I told my counselor that my goal is to be a size 6...She didn't really need to know about my myriad of other reasons for doing it for good this time.
Anyway, I proceeded to say that in the past at 183 pounds I was a comfortable size 8. Keep in mind this held true not only in college, but after another large weight loss attempt...
Therefore we set my goal at 161, since that would probably put me in a 6.
However, I weighed in last week at 183.5, but I am still in a 10.
So for me remodeling has another meaning, too, and it's not just angry fat cells.
I know I have looser skin than I used to-a 'reward' from weight loss that I can SEE in the mirror. Maybe this will tighten up over my maintenance period as the system supporting the fat that I have lost recedes and my angry fat cells chill out. But maybe my increasing age and decreasing connective tissue will keep me saggy.
However, for now I am a square 10 trying to fit into a round 8.
How many of you feel 'remodeled' and have realized you aren't the same size you used to be at the same weight?
