  • Uuuummmmbop - sorry I haven't been frequenting here of late! I had that sanity thread going and don't have time to write long / insightful (or so I think) posts right now Can't WAIT to meet up with you though! I'm flying to NYC in a few hours, then CA on MOnday!

    I'm actually thinking of going to LA. I have a few contacts there. Would it be madness to get a bus? Is public transport just for thugs and homeless people and I'll never make it there without getting held up at gun point? (this is what Hollywood tells me LA is like...)

    • Ladies with skin problems: Have you visited Clear Skin. Amazing Life. Incredible You. | The Love Vitamin Tracy, the inspiring author of the incredible blog and whom changed my perception of life, cured her hormonal acne with a natural supplement. This is after years of very drastic dietary and lifestyle changes. If you haven't already, I would highly encourage you to visit her blog and browse through the eye-opening and insightful content she has deeply and passionately talked about.

      I wouldn't recommend washing your face more than once per day and of course, use only natural ingredients. (honey!) I know it's easier said that done, but try not to stress about it too much. I'm only just clearing my skin which I put down to not eating enough food, not exercising thus having an under active thyroid. Mine too was painful jawline acne that takes forever to heal.

      Seriously, check it out. Even if you don't clear your acne, you will learn A LOT about nutrition and life in general. Take one thing at a time and be patient. Remember: You won't have acne FOR EVER and your body is just telling you something isn't quite right.

      All the best.

      • Ci, that's what I'd expect from an ED forum, honestly. I'm glad you were able to pull yourself away.

        I was going to say that maybe you should not be washing your face so much. I know that sounds counter intuitive, but the more you wash, the more your skin will try to overcompensate for stripping the oils.

        Anyway, I really do leave my face alone. I wash it in the evening with castille soap (and baking soda most of the time), dab any open spots with rubbing alcohol, apply some tea tree oil and coconut oil, wiping off any excess. Every few days I use raw honey. It really has been great recently. It's just when I do stupid shit like put toxins in my body that it freaks out.

        Thanks for the link Nstocks. I will definitely check it out!

        Yoges, it is nearly impossible to take public transportation in LA. 1) It is full of crazies and 2) LA is such a horribly laid out area (you really just have to experience it / live there yourself to understand) and traffic is such a nightmare that a) trying to get anywhere would probably require 5 buses minimum and b) none of them would be running on schedule.
        Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

          I started washing my face with rose water again. Love it! It's so gentle - perfect for sensitive skin. Isn't baking soda quite harsh...?

          Oh, also coconut oil gives some people acne, which is why it's often not recommended to use on the face.

          So, you're visiting a friend in SF - what day do you want to meet? Maybe we could meet for lunch one day and if we don't hate each other we could all go for a drink another night?

          Bwt, came up with a cover story for operation setting--you-up-with-my-brother: you are my friends younger sister

          • You seem pretty obnoxious. The least amount of time spent together would probably be best.

            I'm not sure whether I'm flying in that Wed evening or Thurs morning, but perhaps Friday or Saturday or parts of both would work for me!

            Oh great, our relationship is already starting out with lies... Haha.

              Maybe we could have coffee on Friday, then we could all go for a drink Friday / Saturday night? I'm flying out on Sunday morn.

              Well, I'm only giving you guys a few hours to fall in love, so a little detail like Truth shouldn't come into it Ready, Steady - Date!

                That sounds good!

                Oh god this is too much pressure D: I won't even date guys that harass me for months.

                Hmm, yeah. I still have been too afraid of the consequences of switching my facewash over to anything else other than Johnson & Johnson Purpose bar with Cetaphil + SPF moisturizer. I really need to get my shit together with the "no parabens in the beauty products" tip, but I feel like anything is going to break out my super sensitive skin. I know for a fact that tea tree oil breaks my skin out because I put some in my hair and it made everything disgusting. I'm not sure about putting coconut oil on my face, though. Baking soda actually did do well with my skin (and teeth!) but I haven't been using it. I also feel like rubbing alcohol would be too harsh, maybe witch hazel instead? I dunno!
                I think I told you a while ago that Cetaphil made my acne worse. If it's as bad as you say it is, don't you have nothing to lose? You should go back to scrubbing with baking soda (maybe just a few times a week) and just a dab of coconut oil to remoisturize. Rubbing alcohol is very strong which is why I only use it as a spot treatment. Witch hazel might be better.

                • Thursday, June 6

                  Sleep/Energy:
                  - 1am-2am-6:45am. Realized I couldn’t go back to sleep because I was hungry and that I was hungry because I didn't eat very much yesterday.
                  - Rolled around in bed for a good 2 hours after breakfast. After that my energy was fine for the rest of the day. I am pretty tired now, though.

                  Food/Digestion:
                  - B: Yoghurt mango maple salt
                  - S: 1 egg
                  - L: 1/2 honeydew melon + salt (look and feel like I'm going to pop. Bad idea. Stupid Dumb.)…. ~4oz smoked salmon
                  - Entertainment: 2 ginger chews
                  - D: 4 eggs + ~1 oz feat cheese (ok maybe a little more) + little coconut oil, bunch of cantaloupe

                  Not eating enough?
                  That's 2 pretty low cal days in a row. Yesterday a bit over 1400 kcal and today a bit under. It was that damn half a melon, but I had the urge. I also have the feeling that I didn't eat very much since the beginning of this week, but I'm not hungry (for once). Am I only not hungry because I've been eating so little? Should I force myself to eat more or just go with the flow? I really like the idea of just doing what my body is telling me to do, but what if my body is wrong? D: *breathes into a paper bag*

                  - Bloat was not great upon waking even (I think it was the cottage cheese. More lactose in that than yoghurt) and already very bloated after breakfast. Gah. Then looked like I was going to give birth after the honeydew but it went down fairly quickly (fruit bloat).
                  - Loose BM in the morning

                  Supps:
                  - Mg (200mg)
                  - Tobacco (Ha, is this a supplement Derp?) 1/2 tonight, a few puffs last night

                  Acne:
                  - No worse, no better. Honey tonight.

                  Sinuses:
                  Congested upon waking. Fine by afternoon. It's your fault, Yoges, for bringing it up!

                  Mood
                  low physical and mental energy = poor mood. Not a bad mood really, just... no mood. Apathetic. Sorry I haven't been replying to you all with fervor.

                  EDIT: Forgot to add, I went for a therapeutic massage today. My neck and shoulders ache quite easily when I'm working at a desk because my poor eyesight causes me to hunch over. I was getting shooting pains and this magical massage lady totally turned me into goo. I'm going to go again soon, though, since all the knots still aren't out.

                      The fourth in that list has now been merely referred to under the blanket phrase, "a certain substance," being as I am 100% unanonymous now.

                      Also i just want to punch all your bloated stomachs to make em knock it off. Is that wrong or think itd help?
                      Could you knock me in the head instead? Unconscious = no eating = no bloated stomach.

                          • Aight, I usually don't update during the middle of the day, but I'd like to get feedback on this:

                            My sleep has been a nightmare this week. I've been waking up at various times in the early morning, sometimes being able to fall back asleep, sometimes not until I've eaten, and I'm pinning it on calorie deprivation. Of course it wasn't purposeful, it's just how it turned out. I never even felt very hungry - possibly because I was so busy or "tiding myself over" until the next meal - but when I tracked the past 2 days and only came back with 1400 kcal (less even yesterday) I know I haven't been eating much more than that since Monday. And I'm not just concerned about sleep; I don't want my already sluggish digestion to be made even worse by this.

                            1) Remedying this now: I'm finding it difficult to consume a ton of cals on the foods that I'm eating. The most calorie dense food that I feel comfortable (physically) eating a fair amount of is coconut milk ice cream. I'm going to stock up on that today and consume a fair amount of that.

                            2) Preventing this in the future: I need to bring more food with me to work. Also I discovered that in our building there is a large plaza surrounded by options that I can partake in: sushi, pakistani curry, thai, etc. I will also make sure I have more food to eat after dinner, since my cousins don't eat much at dinner, presumably since they eat more during the day? I have no idea.

                            • Yea, force yourself to eat. Eat lots of pleasure foods if your not hungry. Most likely its the adrenalin from not eating making you not hungry. Stress, stress yall.

                                No hunger is no problem today. I had breakfast... twice... and was still starving, so I ran to the store to grab some coconut milk ice cream and am happily consuming it as we speak (type?)

                                The adrenalin could also be keeping me awake, yeah?
