My second holiday season has passed since I started Primal and I am back to my normal weight range. I will admit that last year I don't recall varying from my standard 168-172. I enjoyed this holiday season much more. ;-) Starting on Thanksgiving, I ate a little of EVERYTHING. Had the usual food pains and brief coma-like sleep, but recovered nicely from that. Christmas was wonderful, and I tried a piece of every dessert that was offered at every party . I slowly noticed the scale easing up to the high end of my normal range. I actually held at 174 for a few days while temperatures were in the teens here. I think most of that was from missing one week of beach sprints, but I was happy to see that I was back at 172 this morning. Feel great, Got three suits tailored to fit my smaller frame, enjoyed the holidays, and have again proven to myself that I can enjoy eating great food and still stay lean and fit.
