    hey, congrats on the weight!

    also, i am partial to the keaton batman. i think its because he will always be mr. mom to me, and having him also be the dark knight is just delicious irony.

    Really? But you're so tall. 150 seems like a normal weight. What's your goal?
    *stares with doleful eyes because she's 5'2 and recently at that weight as well*
    There comes a time when you become so fat and sick that you're suddenly willing to listen.

    That's so very kind, Meatie...but I have a very light bone structure, thin wrists and ankles...and all of my fat (except boobs) is between waist and mid-thigh.
    It kind of looks as if somebody evil just threw handfuls of it at me, and it stuck

    Judging by the "Kerrygold Method" (comparing body fat deposits with package of butter)...maybe 6-8 more pounds need to go.

    You are FINE

    Flatmates may mistake the noise for something else though... And that last line is making my eyes water!

    Congrats on the weight Kuno! Nice work

    We had a soldier show up to formation one morning with stubble on half his face and the other side extrememly red. He couldn't find his razor.....

    I was impressed that he sucked it up for half his face before putting the epilady down and saying, "screw it".

    I can't imagine using it on more delicate areas. YEESH!

    *posting under alias* You'll be able to tell by my writing though......

    Me too. You have no idea. I'd shaved for years but I hate the expense, the stubble etc.

    So here's what I did..... I can't believe I'm saying this. I assume we're talking bikini area (bikini, half brazilian/french, brazilian etc). No LMX on legs....too large an area.


    Purchase

    LMX-4 (it's otc)
    cortisone cream
    baby wipes - small pack
    ibuprofen (motrin, advil, store brand)

    Make Apt
    choose service provider based on recommendations from friends, yelp etc
    Timing is everything.
    plan for waxing around ovulation - a few days prior is ideal- ....you're significantly less sensitive to pain.


    Prepare

    1)timing is everything. plan for waxing around ovulation - a few days prior is ideal- ....you're significantly less sensitive to pain.
    2)trim everything you want waxed to about a 1/4 inch
    3)so an hour before:
    shower. thoroughly
    take 800 mg ibuprofen with enough food to protect your stomach. (a hb egg, marrow and/or nko are perfect - the phosophlipids bond with the ibuprofen which both makes it more effective and keeps it from damaging your gut.)
    4)dry off, apply several large pea sized blobs of LMX to every bit of your bikini area that will have hair removed....every bit. Use a mirror if necessary. Don't use more LMX...you absolutely can OD on lidocaine. It takes 60 minutes to reach max effect to reach max effect - so be meticulous with your timing
    5)sit or lay on towel on floor until it's very throughly dry. I usually wait about 10 minutes.
    6)gather baby wipes, cortisone and head in for the apt.

    At the appointment
    • when she leaves the room for you to undress, use baby wipes to wipe off any lmx residue and to freshen up.
    • keep talking during waxing...use techniques like 'non-focused awareness' ....keep breathing slow and low. very slow and low.
    • when she's finished, apply cortisone 1x fairly liberally.
    • soreness is unlikely to persist after she's done....but a nice 'sensitive' sensation is present....good time for great sex



    Follow up
    If you have have issues with ingrowns - or even if you never do - use bha or an rx retinoid once a week to encourage cell turnover and reduce the possibility of ingrowns.

    Since it takes about 6 weeks for each hair to begin to grow back, weekly epilation will be removing only 1/6th of what you'd be pulling out normally. Thus, it's much less painful. Honestly, to me, it no longer hurts....it's just sensation. However, if I let it go past two weeks...ugh. It's not fun but now that I've been doing it a long time, I can manage it.

    Mine - braun silk epil epilator:

    Also have heard great things about the panasonics:

    Fwiw, it's more painful on face than bikini 'area'.
