A couple of pounds does the body good

In the colder months of the year, I, like many others, pack on a few pounds.  I like to call it my padding (i.e. winter weight).  Inevitably, it goes away in the spring, when I begin to eat less hearty food and run around more outdoors. 

Strangely, even though I don't feel like I'm in great shape (I still am, so I'm not feigning ignorance), I get more compliments about how 'healthy' I look.  Everything fills out more - cheeks, arms, chest, ass - and it compliments me, even though I don't particularly care for it.  I like looking at myself when I'm lean and ripped, not full and toned.

Thankfully, this look only happens once a year.  Can't wait for the summer.
