So unless I get them surgically separated or somehow they start making them for us mutants, I'll stand back in envy.

    (From what I could tell, then material felt great on the feet and I loved the bottoms. DAMN you feet!!)
    All you need is 1 bottle of Jack Daniels, semi-sharp pocket knife, and a girl who can sew; problem solved. Buy your VFFs now!

      I have better whiskey and better rum (your choice), a nice sharp pocket knife with a ling blade to prevent inadvertent gashes, and I can sew flesh (I have experience!).
      Feel free to give me a shout and we'll work on freeing up those toes.

          • It can be frustrating going shopping.

            Today, I went shopping for jeans. I got "super skinny" (that's the label), size 10 (NZ, which is a US 4/6).

            So, I grab a pair and run into the changing room (sprints, yo! LOL kidding), and there are ladies in rooms either side of me. I think nothing of it.

            Until I step out of the dressing room to see if they "fit" properly (no mirror in the changing room, oddly, but mirrors are expensive here). THen, I'm suddenly surrounded by dirty looks.

            now, admittedly, it could be because I was there with my son and I was stern with him. But, it could also be because I was the thinnest woman in the dressing room -- including teens -- wearing the smallest pair of jeans there (admittedly, they do also sell size 8 and 6 NZ -- 8 being a 4/2 US, and 6 being a 2/0 US). But, apparently none of the really petite gals were in the dressing room at the time.

            The jeans were on sale-sale, so I got two.

            Then I went and tried on bras/panties at the fancy lingerie shop (also having a sale), and got three sets of very nice ones. The ladies there were very nice and helpful, though I overheard them saying "man, I wish I'd lost all the baby weight. Did you see her abs?"

            At least they were nice about it.

              My frustration lately is my golf game has fallen apart with my weight loss and flexibility increase.

              My flexibility has skyrocketed, and with that flexibility has come a huge increase in my swing speed. I promise I am not lying when I say my average drive is over 300 yards, and I have usually 1 drive in the 330-340 yards each round.

              Here lies the problem- I caved in the face of my R11 driver! I am lost without my driver! My new driver is on the way from taylormade, but I hate playing without one!

              My scores have went up by around 8 strokes because I can't dial n the added length of my irons. For example- pitching wedge was around 130, now I am hitting it over 150- 6 iron was around 180- now it is flying from 215-225. What the hell? I don' t feel I am swinging that hard, but I hit some balls on the monitor and my swing speed was approaching 125 and a few higher. For all u golfers out there, that is pretty crazy for me.

              Oh well, I will figure it out one day and play this stupid game good, at least I am healthier and feel great- golf is just a game!

              I have this same problem! Distances are exactly the same and for the longest time I was flying greens by 20+ yards. I still find myself making poor club selection choices in the 175-190 yd range. Good luck!

              • Where can I buy jumpers that don't assume that women have skinny arms? I have actual biceps now, and can't get my arms into things that are meant to be my size.

                  • I've always liked curling up and sitting on one leg when I'm relaxing, and now I'm very happy that I can sit cross-legged on my narrow armchair. Unfortunately I've still got a lot more thigh-fat to lose so I still get pins and needles!

                    I also need to buy new bras soon, for the second time in 5 months (Started at 38J, now in a getting-loose 36J, soon I think I'll need a 34J!). This is inconvenient because I'm still big enough in cup size to need to order them online, and pray that I've worked out the size correctly and won't have to send them back!
                    Start weight: 238 lbs (March 2012)
                    Current weight: 205 lbs (July 2012)
                    Loss so far: 33 lbs!!!
                    WOE: Primal + IF
                    Movements: Hiking, sprinting.
                    Goal: to see my abs some time in 2013!

                      I feel your pain! I just bought a new bra off ebay in what I thought was my new size (I measure as a G), but when it arrived the fit was hilariously bad. Luckily I was able to go to the retail store today and exchange it for a DDD and that fits okay. But otherwise I would have been out $15 and would have been mad.

                      • I thought someone had moved the seat on the driver's side of my car back because the steering wheel felt far away. Then I noticed that the pedals were still reachable. That was an awesome day.

                        • Last Saturday, I mixed frozen blueberrries with a 1 can of Whole Foods Coconut Milk which I found delicious! Unfortunately, I got really sick soon after eating it, which included diahreah and nausea. I found this article on why you can sick on coconut milk,

                          3 reasons why coconut milk may not be your friend

                          I have a pretty strong constitution so I was shocked I felt so horrible all day after eating it. I know it wasn't the blueberries because I've been eating them everyday with non-fat yogurt with no problems. Do you think a whole can might have to much fat for me at one sitting or one of the three reasons the Doctor lists in the link above?
                          I want to try it this weekend in a small portion but I can't affor to get sick another day. FYI, I also got sick after consuming really high fat cream from Trader Joes. I've always eaten a high fat diet, comprised of junk food, so I know I don't have a problem with high fat content since I have eaten 1 pint of Ben and Jerries with no problems. Why would coconut milk make me so sick??? Has anyonelse been sick after drinking a whole can of coconut milk?
                          Thanks for any input!

                          • I don't drink a whole can of coconut milk. I usually take about half and dilute it with water and ice cubes before making my drinks.

                            • HAH! I bought a really nice dress shirt from Penningtons before I began my journey in earnest... I can still wear it, but I use broaches to pin it to my bra so it doesn't start showing everything!

                                Coconut milk, in a large amount, acts as a laxative. That's why you felt sick.
