    Refeed win / why yes these ARE new jeans

    Shop Now
    So July 4th week after 30 lbs down I took a vacation and ate large amounts of potatoes and cheese. Came back 8 pounds up, but 4% body fat down. Didn't really credit the 4%, thought it was water weight that would disappear next week. BTW, in the 30 lbs down the body fat % had not budged.

    This week: lost 4 of the 8 pounds, the body fat % held AND when I started losing weight I bought jeans that were too small and a size under that that. The too small jeans are stupid big and now I am sitting here in the two sizes too small jeans.

    Refeed, eat more, etc. :-D

    And not having worn jeans in a while (I find there is a weight where one... Just... Can't) I had forgotten about jeans thing and washed them WITH my clothes, yes.

    But no matter... Big jeans be gone! New jeans, I will wash you all alone so you don't ruin my clothes.

    Thanks EKatherine and Annieh!

    Argh, I still haven't been able to make refeeding work for me (fat-loss-wise, that is). I'll do refeeds and carb cycling for a few weeks to build muscle, then do caloric restriction and oil shots for another few weeks to strip off the fat that comes with it.

    I LOVE when I'm in "eat to perform" mode, because my workouts shoot through the roof, but man, so does my waistline. Luckily, I've got my "cut" method down at this point, so it's not hard to take the fat back off.

    Yes, this is why I look cross-eyed or just plain crossly at anyone who says weight-loss is "easy". If it were easy we wouldn't be in the middle of an obesity epidemic, we wouldn't all be here scheming to outwit the modern lifestyle, and managing my obesity wouldn't be so similar to the complications of people trying to obtain super-optimum physics.
