Lets just get this out of the way now...I am not a small girl. I have never been small. Doctors tell me my ideal BMI would have me somewhere around 129. But that is never going to happen, I am pretty sure I would die shortly afterwards, or at least look really really nasty. I am just not built to be tiny.
One of the reasons I decided to go with MRC was when I went in and got my consultation and they asked how much I wanted to weigh I told them I would be good at 150. I was 150 before when I lifted weights and was kind of a gym rat, I had the awesome abs, and even then, I wore a size 8-10, I could fit in an 8 skirt, but 10 pants. I just have big hips, and broad shoulers, so 150 made ma happy. The woman I was with looked at me and said, "No, your ideal weight is between 154 and 182, so how about 160?" I guess i am was kind of convinced at that point that MRC was going to help me, becuase they did not try to whittle me down into an impossibility.
I will never be a size 2 or 4 or even 6. For the people who can and fit into those sizes, great, more power to you, but it was just so nice to hear someone professional tell me what I have known for years; I will never be small, I have so much muscle (former gym rat), bone, and various internal organs that (128 pounds worth, I think she said) that there is no way for me to get down to a "healthy BMI". And you know what else, I am good with that. I like being curvy, I liked being able to benchpress my body weight, I am not real fond of how big my boobs are and that I cannot find cute bras in my size, but I can live with it.
So, what was your selling point? What made MRC the right choice for you? I am just curious.
