So we are almost 3 weeks post competition, I'm sitting around 135lbs which is an extremely manageable spot for me. My waist measurements are up about 3 inches because honestly I can't maintain a 26" waist. I just can't, and that's fine. Between PMS bloat, carb bloat, "I don't like what you just fed me" bloat, etc, etc, it's not possible. It might be eventually, but right now it's not. I can't explain what it is with my midsection, I'm not a doctor, I'm back to crapping once a day, whatever. Moving on.
