-3 tide today. The pirate and I walked squelched around the bay and he pointed out all the boats at anchor that were now stuck in the mud. Very pretty day for the northwest in May. :)

About 10 yards from my kitchen window lies a would-be grassy knoll, with a couple of large decorative rocks and some shrubby shrubs capped by a pine tree intended to disguise the next condo building. Between me and the knoll lies a paved walkway along which a gent in red baseball cap and blue shorts over which protrudes a prodigious paunch parades every day. And not just once a day. And he always has a pooch in tow. The pooch proceeds onto pooch poop park where he drops his little parcel (retrieved by the paunch in a plastic bag) and off they go. Only to return - same paunch, different pooch, same poop park, a loaf is pitched and plastic retrieved, and so it continues. This paunch is apparently a pooch poop parader, his post-employment occupation. :lol:

Well, I don't know if this is funny or sad...

But I finally found a few bras that fit. And I went down a band size (almost two) and up two -three cup sizes to figure it out.

And I now know I have huge boobs (F cup). No wonder D's weren't working...

Now, all I had to do was say "F cup" to hubs and I magically got better looking. And even funnier - the right bras make me look slimmer and clothes fit better - sometimes giving me more room in a shirt. Other times - it looks obscene (but hubs finds it infinitely entertaining).

So I have bigger boobs that fit clothes better, and a tickled pink hubby with an F-G cup wife (and he didn't have to pay a plastic surgeon).

But I do have a pile of ill- fitting bras to return by mail since you can't find F-G cup bras around us. Grr.

Bra shopping sucks!! I like Lane Bryant, they tend to have larger cup sizes (and lower prices than Nordstrom's).

Their stuff doesn't work for me, unfortunately. It doesn't have enough support and the sizes are wrong. So far Freya and Dominique work for me. Fantasie SHOULD work but the problem is getting the right size on the right style and since stores dont stock them i have to guess and order. Aaack!!! Found a Panache bathing suit top-that's another adventure - bathing suit tops!!' must have a built in sized bra and am mailing back TWO today.

I still don't know of this is funny or sad.

My opinion on lingerie is funny. And I use funny words to describe the adventure, but in the end I just want vodka.

Well, I was confused for a while - couldn't figure out how I went from a C to a D and it still wouldn't work....til I hit the F's and G's....

Actually, they used to be C's til my son "gave me a boob job". It was called pregnancy....:).

C to an F/G. That usually requires surgery.

And the FUNNY part was the look on my face. I don't think they have a clean emoticon for THAT.

Well, I think this claim really calls for pictures to substaniate it. Then us males types can judge for ourselves objectively and see if we agree with the claim. But pictures are definitely a must. Lots of pictures up close in fact. Color of course. At least 8x10 glossies. Maybe a signature would be nice too.

Do we need to send you a camera and some film? B)

    • Take the opportunity to get healthy!    Nuts, seeds, fruits, take these as snacks on your drive. I personally love almonds and pumpkin seeds. Or bananas and blueberries. Or if you need protein there's lots of gluten free protein bars at gas stations. I like to pack hard boiled eggs too.  One thing I do for long trips is I make sort of a granola/protein bar at home and take it with me.    1 cup oats 3 eggs two spoonfuls of peanut butter some cinnamon and a banana.   mash it all together and bake it like a cake for about 20 minutes. Chop em up into little bars and bag em for your trip. just get creative and try new things! 
    • I totally understand.    Ive noticed the same thing when I started really ramping up my fitness program.    To start, cut out the 30 day challenges. If your serious about fitness, you will incorporate it as a normal entity of life. We already have compromised immune systems so putting sudden outbursts (or challenges) of stress on it will only make you more susceptible to pathogens and ultimately, get you sick.    Take a week, only stretch, light cardio, very light strength training, and lots of rest. Next week, add a little more. Show your body that you can handle it, but do it push it by any means. This new training regime is forever, it's your lifestyle. Take it easy, and play it smart. Slowly add more intense training over time... slowly. Get to a point where you feel your nutrition and fitness needs are being satisfied, and you're productively making differences.   i personally work out 3-4 days a week. But if I go too hard, I get sick. Then I get frustrated that I can't exercise, I work out anyway, and get even more sick. It's just not smart. So I stopped that. I have respect for my immune system and its limits. I took it very slow, and increased my intensity over time. Now I'm at that golden point in my life where everything is balanced. Progress (in terms of personal aesthetics for myself and my interests) is slow, but it's progress. And it's a hell of a lot better than the go hard and get sick cycle.   Best of luck to you friend! I'm sure you will find your way! Learn your body. Know that you are strong, you are powerful, you just have to play it smart. 
    • Yes^, usually if you tell them about celiac, they know. Almost all nurses know what celiac is. If not, tell them what you can and can't consume. There is no such thing as gluten in IV. They always have fruits and juices at hospitals, you can ask for those. Staff in an ER, will always be very kind and helpful, as long as you are kind and respectful to them. I've noticed nurses are just about the best people in the world if you let them know how serious you are about something. As for medications, ask the physician or doctor what the medication is. See if it's diluted with anything. If either of you are unsure, look up the medication online before you take it. You can almost always find an answer. Besides, nowadays it's extremely rare to find gluten in prescribed medication because of how strict pharmaceutical companies have become on allergies and intolerances. 
    • A ketogenic diet is good if you are trying to lose weight, lower insulin levels, fight diabetes, lower blood sugar, etc. . But I'm 20 years old, 5'9 165lbs, that's not healthy for me. I am extremely active and need carbohydrates. In fact I definitely need more because I am lower than 12% body fat for sure. Also, if I remember, ketoacidocis is practically what the ketogenic diet induces, which isn't a normal body function. it's practically tricking your body to think it's starving, which for some, is a good thing. Not for all. It's like taking cold showers, they're good because they can boost and improve muscle recovery, but it does so by putting stress on your nervous system. Our bodies can handle being put into shock, they can bring out helpful chemicals in our bodies, yet they're not necessarily healthy. Yet, if you truly believe this is improving the way you live then who am I to tell you it's wrong.      And yes, I am still playing the game of trying to find the golden number of hours on sleep. I read about sleep cycles and I'm going to try to make it either 6 or 7.5 on the dot.    Nightsky, what carbs would I eat? Am I allowed any type of rice if I'm grain free? I eat lots of potatoes but sometimes I feel it's too much. I cook all the time and eat about 90% whole foods  with the exception of peanut butter and ground beef. 
    • I pretty much do all of that with the exception of parchment paper. I tried telling them about the loose flower and they look at me like I'm being some controlling a**hole. I'm too poor to afford extra paper towels and parchment paper. I can't seem to get them to understand how serious it is. I don't want to ruin everyone's day because of my disease. I can't use the ice machine because they put their hands in it, and when I tell them to be careful they forget. They've used my pans and silverware so I just end up giving them my pans and buying new ones. I am just going to accept that the next x-amount of years are just going to suck and there's nothing I can do. I just feel like I am being treated unfairly by the world. I  steal from grocery stores because I feel like they're robbing me with extremely expensive prices on food that I can eat. I have no shame whatsoever taking things when I can.  It sucks and there's just about nothing I can do. I am going to accept it, work hard in school and finally have my own gluten free household.  Im starting to get sick of free food being everywhere, and I can't have anything. My work always buys everyone lunch or dinner. And I can never eat anything because there's no safe local restaurants. I don't care about eating the food, I have no desire to eat gluten food at all, I just feel like everyone around me gets paid extra (in food because we're poor college students) and I'm left out, starving, eating canned tuna and canned beans. Can I at least get a raise since I can't eat the food?? And don't get me started on the socials. Last time, my work had Olive Garden, and everyone was running around with breadsticks trying to shake my hand. Probably washed my hands about a hundred times and still got sick that night.   PS I just kissed a girl the other night who definitely drank a beer so I'm dying from that as of now. (She lied about drinking beer). I know, I'm a mess.    So like I said you are all very kind and helpful, I will take your advice and do my best to minimize my ingestion of gluten (I feel like I'm starting to become neurotic because of it). And I will continue to accept the suck, with the dream of one day being completely isolated from everyone where I can live in gluten free peace. I'm just physically not meant to be a normal human being.
