No. 4

I'm legitimately curious if any of my fellow chu/bm/en(?) have insightful advice/experience on this topic:

Is there really a point when taking any steps towards any level of 'transitioning' becomes fundamentally a waste of time?

I'm past the third-way point in my life, and I feel like shit; I would never want surgery or anything like that, but when I look into the mirror I see something too far gone to even bother /trying/ to cd, or hell, even start a tailored exercise regimen instead of general fitness. I know people redefine their identity at all sorts of different points in their lives; but I feel that on some fundamental level I *know* it'll never "work," so why even bother? why face that disappointment? Is never knowing the even worse fate, though, I don't know.

For that matter, do any of you have any tricks for dealing with that profound sense of I guess ennui? Ways of normalising and coping with the eternal questioning of oneself; on how to better deal with self-perception, or fuck, even meditation techniques to better understand one's true state of mind, potentiality and desires?

So I'd like to know what, if any, experiences y'all've had wrestling, and any advice you may carry towards the real boots-on-the-ground realities of overcoming or compromising with, any of this. Honest personal insights.

That's tricky.

Old folk that start working out can still get very muscly.

As someone who went from 350 lbs to 190 after YEARS of a vicious cycle of disgusting eating all I can tell you is that it will work if you get out of the cycle

It's so stupid that this is the best advice but if you keep saying that it really will never happen

I thought of it as there were two mes, one bad one who was only out to harm the good me by eating bad food

If you think of it as a battle with yourself it puts it in a better perspective

No.81

Just remember that you are making a permanent change in your life. This is not something temporary like fad diets.

You have to forgive yourself every time you fuck up and immediately get back on the horse

Accept that you will not be perfect and you will fuck up many times

You are whatever you do most of the time

this X 1000

i struggled to lose weight for years. i'd start strong, then fuck up sometime later in the day. then i'd be like, "Well I already fucked up may as well go order a pizza" then i'd gain even more wait. Just got to keep doing it until one day you don't fuck up, then you dont' fuck up for two days, three…..

No.111

While I sincerely appreciate y'all's honest and thoughtful responses, I'm not entirely certain you've understood what I was actually talking about…

Only drink you must drink is water, maybe sometimes some green tea. (it must be brewed fresh at home, NO SHITTY NORMAL-IDIOT BRANDS, many crappy brands brew yellow and taste like shit. real green tea brews nice green color so make sure you test out a few of the lesser known and more natural brands as those tend to brew better tea.)
(Try to get natural spring water for low natural fluoride content or a reverse osmosis water brand or a home reverse osmosis filter to avoid craploads of fluoride and chlorine)
(Most random filters you can buy can remove some chlorine but never claim to remove 100% of all fluoride, so don't trust that for that purpose)
(always call up or email your water brand and ask them for a detailed water quality report. Make sure fluoride levels and ingredient lists are 100% transparent and clearly mentioned. If they wont give you this, find another brand that will. The nice ones always have no problem sending you an email with all the details you ask for. Just be polite)

GOOD CARBS ONLY: beans, lentils, peas, oats

GOOD PROTEIN ONLY: beans, lentils, spirulina, hemp protein powder, nuts and seeds

GOOD FATS ONLY: raw nuts and seeds and avocado and coconut

LOTS OF VEG: brightly colored of various colors. frozen veg is cheapest and will give you the most. roast/bake in oven and eat with balsamic vinegar

LITTLE FRUIT: dark blue/purple/red FROZEN BERRIES = cheapest and give you the most for your money.

supplement nascent iodine, b12 methylcobalamin, and D3 cholecalciferol. (avoid cyanocobalamin and lanolin- easier to avoid if you try to find "vegan" versions of these)
(Look up the long list of symptoms associated with deficiency in these)
(I found these supplements on amazon, and I felt that I found more options and better prices than what I found by walking into normal store)
(I should mention that many iodine supplements are mixed as in part ioDINE and part ioDIDE(s). I would suggest doing your own research on a fully 100% ioDINE one, vs the other. I tried to avoid mixes after what I learned from my research. Some "totally legit people" love to crawl out of the woodwork and scream "NASCENT IODINE ISN'T REAL!!!!". Well I fucking bought some and I liked it.)
In my personal experience I was getting lots of dry cracked bleeding skin and thinning of the skin all over my body, like I would brush up against something and my hands would get cut like nothing and get blood blisters and my lips and butthole would constantly get dry and crack and bleed for no fucking reason. I had some joint pain and eczema and psoriasis (very minor thank God) I also had some weird thyroid issues and my hair was falling out and I felt very weak and tired all the time and when depression hit, it would hit extra hard, like even more than usual (which was literally always, and still is, but not so sharply painful, but obviously still very painful) I'm just saying that in my own personal experience, after I took these and followed the instructions on the bottles I noticed some improvement and I'm probably going to keep it up from now on. I'm glad I discovered these, so I'm just saying- Do your own research.
