  • I've gone for a combo

    Honestly, does the skirt look too small?! I barely managed to pull it on... I still have time to change





    Funny asking my internet friends for clothing advice - LOL. The alternative is ask my alcoholic housemate...
    "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

    In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

    • It looks fine to me. Does it feel comfortable on?

      Looks awesome!

      • Doesn't look too small to me. I would say wear what makes you feel the most confident.

        • Thank you!

          It's bunching at the back, and I have to keep pulling it down... cannot believe this was once my "fat" skirt... now I barely fit into it - LOL!

          • I'm really digging the whole outfit. If you feel comfortable and confident with it don't change. I totally would not.
            As to 'fat skirt', speaks about a different time, place and state of mind. You look great and I'm not the generous with compliments type

            Have a good time!!!

            • The skirt looks good, as long as the bunching isn't too annoying! Btw, you don't look fat at all. (Your thinness standards are too high!) Also, your thighs look slim--what I can see of them anyway!

                  Thanks guys! That's really sweet of y'all to say. I actually felt pretty good in the outfit: the top is cool - you can't see in the photo but half of it is sheer. I'm still a bit shocked that the skirt was so tight.

                  So anyway, the date went well! It was probably the coolest first date I've ever been on. He lives near me, so we went to my local park, walked around it for an hour, went down the slide, sat chatting on a four person swing, back-to-back; then sat by the canal for about two hours, talking til it was pitch dark. We got locked into the park and had to climb over the gate, and then I realised I lost my house keys going down the slide..! He's a really interesting guy too: I really enjoyed chatting to him. And - it's the first date I've ever been on where I didn't feel under pressure to kiss him at the end. Normally the guy "creates" a situation where he can kiss me... but most of the time I'm not particularly interested, or else I'm not ready (I need to take things slowly) and the kiss is out of obligation and / or a turn off. Ironically, the guy that doesn't make a move is the one I would have liked to have kissed

                  Anyway, he asked me if I wanted to meet up again and said he'd call me. Given that we met more than a month ago, and this date took two weeks to arrange via text message, our second date will probably be in September

                  Oh, we talked about diet, and he loves carbs

                  • Haha, that's awesome! Sounds like a really cool date. Maybe he'll be more proactive now that you've actually met up.

                      The skirt doesn't look tight at all in the picture. But then again, I tend to wear my clothes spanking most of the time. lol You look very slim too... you must have been a rail before you gained.

                      So glad you had a great date! Is he hot and what did he think about how you eat?

                      Are you going to see the guy you met on OKcupid again?

                        Ha - one thing I know about men is that they will always surprise you...

                        Thank you for asking! I've been having a great time - lots of perspective changes which I hope to sustain when I get back to WA but have little hope for sure I'll write about it eventually. Tbh I think taking a complete break from the forum was therapeutic.
                        I hear you. I think probably you needed a few days off worrying about your bloating etc. Honestly, sometimes just focusing so much on health issues and trying to figure them just creates more health issues! And since I met up with you and we talked about it I've been looking at women in the streets. SO many have bloated tummies.

                        Oh, for the record: mine was a lot better these last weeks w/o much milk. You know what bloated it again? ACV. Hmmm.

                        Aw, thanks Brooke!

                        He's into the diet thing (or thought he was til we got talking ) so he found it interesting. I was casual about how I eat: just said I'm sick of cooking (which is true!) so I mostly eat fruit, cheese and jello Oh, and yes. He is hot! Totally my type.

                        THe OKC guy: I'll probably meet him again. He kind of pushed a kiss on me, which always annoys me a bit. Ususually if you kiss them on date one, they think it gives them a licence to maul you on date two: which is usually when I'm figuring out if I like them at all. He'll be more proactive than the yoga guy, I'm sure.

                        Have you been on any dates lately?

                          Absolutely. My stomach and energy were still pretty unhappy for the most part, but the last thing on my mind was wanting to write about it... There are too many other things to do and think about.

                          Well those women have issues too!! but seriously... Re: ACV, me too, big time. Anything with the potential to alter gut flora could cause a problem. Or it could be the acidity. I dunno!

                          P.S. soooo cute ^_^ and you have a lovely body (something I noticed in person). I would be very happy with my appearance if I were you.
                          Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                              Aw seriously... you're all way too kind! I just think I dress quite well to suit my shape. And no woman is ever happy with their appearance, no matter what they look like!

                              I'm glad you think so too! It was the ideal for me, but I'm not really a wine+dine girl. I prefer being natural with people.

                              July, where are you going?

                              Nothing to report today except that I finally got a good night's sleep last night, I was less hungry today, and my skin suddenly looks amazing! You know the sad thing? I think it's the dopamine effect of being around someone I found sexually attractive Links please. Al I got was this: Chemicals That Fuel Your Sex Life - AskMen
