S/C/G: 257 /ticker/ 160

Height: 5'3" - I got taller!


I'm more like Freelance - when I go off plan, unless it is some epic blowout (I can count the number of those I've ever had on one hand) I usually feel pretty good physically, too. But mentally is a different story.

My bigger issue is if I persist off plan, in small ways, for a long period of time. Then I deal with increasing inflammation and lethargy, symptoms of regain, and that awful feeling of not being fully in control of my weight anymore. That sucks, and I have no desire to go back there (I was there in Aug-Nov 2011, NEVER again. Thankfully I got it back under control with just ten pounds coming back on. Whew!)
