I'd also want to bring a few kleenex and a small paper bag to hold garbage (in case I am not near a garbage can when I need to blow my nose).

I used to be *CRAZY* for milk growing up until puberty, I would drink 4L jugs in 2 days time.... However once i moved in with my dad, there was never milk so I switched to water, so much healthier and better haha. I gained the 20 pounds because I'm stupid and ordered calzones, poutines, pizza, and other sorts of stuff everyday after my birthday on April 27th up until last week when I realized my bank account was going down and my fat was going up. 😖 Also can't forget all the rum and iced tea I consumed since then too ugh.

Cheese, pasta and bread is also the enemy, even though it's dangerously delicious and hard to resist. I'd much rather carry the extra weight in my purse than on myself, but it's hard when temptation catches my stomach. At least I can put the purse down. Rum is fine, just not too much cuz it kills the liver. Ice tea is perfectly fine so long as it's not southern sweet tea, that stuff is a treat of a drink but so bad with the sugar.

IM NOT GIVING UP CHEESE, PASTA, OR BREAD JUST SAYING LOL. i'll never be perfectly healthy but i will always satisfy myself while trying to stay as healthy as possible too, I'm just not going to gorge on food anymore, and eat a certain amount of calories a day while drinking up to 8L of water lol. 1 & half hour work out keeps me in balance at 190 pounds for 5"11, which is great imo.

I couldn't give up cheese, pasta or bread either, and I'm allergic to wheat and eggs. But 5'11 at 190lbs you doing fine and can eat pretty much whatever, especially after a 1.5 hour work out. That's in part why you work so hard, all the more good things to enjoy. I'm 5'2" and around 170. Lol...🤗

awww i couldn't imagine being allergic to wheat and eggs, i know everyone has a different tolerance but could you give me an example of what types of food you shouldn't eat? i use to have an ex that was lactose intolerant and it was the first time i dealt with it so i felt bad for not knowing what types of food she liked.

Well most people who are lactose can't have any dairy products at all or the trips to the bathroom can be fairly painful, it could also really mess with their stomach. But now they have milk with the lactose removed called Lactaid, which is fine still taste like milk but it's expensive. There's also hemp milk, oat milk, rice milk, coconut milk and the less suggested Almond milk, mainly cuz you should be careful bout nuts around people who are allergic. Though nuts like shellfish both are a great sources of protein and have many nutritional benefits, some people can have extremely bad reactions that can end with a hospital visit or death if there's no EpiPen quickly administered. I had to take my EpiPen out of my purse cuz it expired and costs too much to replace.😣 But regular people should all beware their amounts of starches they eat, like corn, potatoes and wheat. Rice is fairly harmless and is the equivalent of package peanuts, except you can eat it. Corn is the worst becoming plastic glue that sticks in your system for a while. Wheat is the second worst, depending on how it's produced and treated, like white wonder bread, it's glue, don't eat. Potatoes aren't as bad, but it's terrible for your teeth, it's recommended you brush after eating potatoes. But everybody should really be careful of too much fish, cuz too much leads to high levels of Mercury build up. Also stay away from ginseng, it's bad for you, might as well stick to Rum, both are toxic and will poison your liver.

 🤣 thanks for the advice!! Everything else i read was extremely informative!  thank you! I actually thrive on 'glue' foods, it makes it easier for me to digest my sriracha sauce LOL. I guess i'll never be able to satisfy myself on this kind of diet though, i'll just have to resort to working out & buying them whenever I need to cook for someone with LT, but seriously, Thank you for existing, I was born deaf so i know what it's like to leave somebody out of something over something they have no control over at all & it saddens me that people actually leave out people with intolerances during birthdays and such.

Madness. My wife is gluten intolerant. I can still bake her a cake, I just need to be careful about what I put in it. There's a lovely GF bakery a couple of miles from the house where we get supplies. By the same token I'm mildly lactose intolerant (I need to limit my intake or intestinal Armageddon happens), so we're careful about our milk products. Also, neither of us is allergic to nuts so almond milk... which is going to be a BIG part of my meal plan today because my diet plan spat out a low carb day. Bleah.

 

Hugs!

Totally hear you on the Sriracha, that with my coffee intake, I get a hole in my gut each time, but it taste so good. 🤤 I found small Sriracha bottles perfect for purse carrying. Drinking wise, I like having rice or pumpkin beer, sake, vodka, wine, brandy, whiskey(rye), and sambuca(for coffee), and with it only a small piece of cake of either only cheese cake or ice-cream cake. 😣Regular cake tastes so good, but it messes my stomach up, and if there are peanuts, it's ruined cuz I'm allergic. But I can have almonds, walnuts, and cashews, so long as they weren't processed in a plant with peanuts or my throat blows up a bit makes it a bit hard to breath. I have an inhaler and allergy medicine I tend to carry but end up needing a small bottle of water sometimes. Use to carry a tiny bottle of sambuca for when I bought coffee but stopped. I liked carrying a tiny bottle of something or once in a blue moon grab a can of Kirin beer or small bottle of sake or something then go to sit quietly and relax in the park. Whiskey is the best for sore throats and clears the sinuses. But haven't had any in over a year. The pandemic just makes me miss it more.😢

I saw them on amazon as well! I wanted to get them but it's 15$ for it which i find pretty expensive, so I've been thinking of finding another alternative instead.

ugh i thought i was the only one!! its actually given me a bad taste for them now, maybe its the hormones, or its just a bad experience i had before. Also, i never heard of pumpkin beer omg, that sounds delicious.

I just noticed you're from new york, how are you dealing with things over there?

It's an ever frustrating experience in NY, but staying inside is the best solution for those who can and should. Though there are particular things that make me demon out in anger, cuz it was an epic fail of the world  being reason why I along with millions are stuck with little security of what's to come, and people can be inhumanely selfish, but deep breathes and focus is important to maintain as well as survival. Use to walk for miles but now will have to wait almost a year to hopefully be able to do those adventures outdoors like I use to.

For traveling, I use tinfoil folded into small envelopes or plastic straws cut and folded to make a capsule of sauces, then place into a big mint tin, well cleaned and washed with a small sandwich bag to keep things clean and from spilling out right away in case of accidents. ☺️

Spoken like a true new yorker! Ha! I'm glad you're staying safe and smart!! i couldn't imagine being in NY during this time, That has to be one of the hardest place to live currently. I would have just packed my bags and taken my tent then hitchhike to the middle of nowheres lol. 

I found a small bottle I could use, it's not empty yet though, It's a moisturizer/sunblock but perfect for purse carrying. I'll just wait until i use all of it, rinse super well and then fill it up.

ngl, i tried to do something once, where i took an old spray bottle, unscrewed the top and screwed it onto the sriracha bottle. i was so disappointed to find out it doesn't squirt the sauce at all. it has to be fully liquid i guess? But ugh imagine spraying your sriracha onto the food so it comes out all evenly. It would have been perfect.

🤣I was tempted, I have gear for it but I'm literally a person at risk even in pure nature sadly. Use to walk for everything anywhere in the city, but now switching to delivery mostly, hurts like hell. Was doing so well with PayPal.

Becareful using bottles that once had moisturizer or sunblock in it, cuz stuff is hard to wash out with chemicals and all. No BPA bottles, BPA is that chemical used in some plastic bottles that's toxic but cheap for production. It's not commonly talked bout cuz it's used practically everywhere even though it's toxic like lead, it only takes a little.

      Hi everyone    Love the new pic Patti.  Good luck with the Job interview Shawna.   I had a great day today.  My wife and I went shopping.  Michael’s for some sewing items them our mall to window shop.  No one appeared to see anything but two women shopping together.  Never got misgendered.  Even got a complement on the dress I was wearing.  This just topped off a great weekend.   Willow

      Thank you for talking about this and learning.  Before this Virus problem started I used to get flyers from ULTA and Sephora cosmetics and their stuff had scratch and sniff inserts in them.  My computer chair is near where the mail drops in, and more than once I have rolled the chair wheels over the flyers, and set off the samples.  They can have me sneezing for an hour or two.  In my CD days, the stronger the perfume smell was the desired motif, I do not miss those times.

      I'm guessing you went noseblind to it. My dad's the same way with cologne. He wore it every day for a while, and after some time passed it started to get stronger... and stronger...   Hugs!

      I shop at Torrid, Long Tall Sally, Target and the local thrift stores. I like cruising the resale shops with my wife, it's a fun outing and sometimes I get something pretty. Don't discount skinny jeans though, I've got no hips so they fit better than regular cut. I'm an XL-Tall at 5' 11" and... no idea what I weigh anymore. I hope less than 210. I haven't been able to check since the pandemic. We don't own a scale.   Hugs!

      OK, now we're a step closer to each other.  I have a non-binary brain in a male body.  Lots of girl stuff and lots of boy stuff for me.   I just got a perspective shift.  If you have that fully female brain, then I see how you say "I have the wrong body!"   And you got a perspective shift, "Oh, I have a female brain."  This is how I was thinking of the MtF people the whole time and I didn't see the pain of "I have the wrong body" until a few days ago.   Very cool.  You can see that for me, I don't think, "I have the wrong body"  I just think, "I have an abby normal brain!" --Grace

      Ok, I'm tired.  I'm tired of spending hours and hours looking for pants and tops for tall women.  At reasonable prices.  I can't pay $79 for a single top, Lane Bryant.  You, too, Long Tall Sally.  Goodwill, you have tons of clothes but could you please put the tall stuff in a special section?  Amazon, you have 40,000 pairs of jeans and no checkbox on the left for "Tall".  How am I supposed to look through 40,000 pairs of jeans?!  Also, some of us are getting older... I don't want skinny jeans, I want a stretch waistband with normal legs.  My eyes are bugging from screen searching so much I'm going to need a new prescription for my glasses.   Does anyone have any suggestions on where to find tall clothes for older gals at affordable prices?  I'm only 5'11"... it shouldn't be this hard!

      This is a highly volatile subject that could get heated so I won't fully go there. I will say however, that here in NH, we had a long standing sexist code. In the Union Leader or any other classifieds here, there's a phrase code of "Must be able to lift 50 lbs and over." It's a blatant way of saying MEN ONLY. Women need not apply. I found this out by accident in my early 20's. I'd been in the air force, worked in stables where lifting 50 lbs happened a dozen times a day with feed, manure and tack. I applied for the job but the guy saw a 5 foot female and immediately said, "This ain't the place for you little girl. The ad is for men. Gotta lift 50 lbs." No joke.

      Keep in mind that a lot of rhetoric we hear comes from the loud mouths.  In this country there has always been, and will continue to be, a silent majority, people who have an opinion but don't feel the need to shout about it at the top of their lungs.  I learned long ago to try and tune out the loud mouths and the news reported primarily for sensationalist reasons.  We have to look past all BS we are made to see and hear to really feel the pulse of the nation.  If we take the time to do that, we see that most people don't take issue with the way we express ourselves.  It's only the terrified loud mouths who are making all the racket, and they really, are the minority.  My experiences as a trans woman have for the most part, been extremely positive, and I absolutely refuse to cower in the face of a few blowhards.  Take heart, that it is never really as bad out there as it can sometimes seem.

      Wow it's great. I like the first version better because it gave a sense of tension and dramatic irony to the verses with a big reveal at the end of each verse. For example insurance coverage only restriction verse tells a story through time in your first version that gets lost in the second and I also love the drama of the line where the girl inside was evicted in the first version. Maybe for verses that are more final you could switch to the couplet to ground and sober the feelings.. It sounds good!

      Fear is mostly the reason I've been in hiding for the past 8 years.  Had a couple of bad experiences when I first moved here (I assumed all of Oregon was LGBTQ friendly... not!) while I watched the turmoil rise across the country about gay marriage.  I told myself and others, "This is going to get worse before it gets better.  I'm tagging out for a while."   Now things are getting to a fever pitch and the troublemakers are all up in the news.  It's the last ditch efforts of the minority who want to turn the clocks back to 1945.  They won't go down without a fight, that's always the way these things go.  They really are the few but they make a lot of noise.  The majority of people are good, as it always has been.  Remember that the majority of people quietly staying at home and out of the fight are good, too.   Hiding isn't working for me any longer.  We have to be safe and smart, but we don't have to stay quiet.     That's exactly how the establishment wants it.  Keep the masses distracted quarreling among themselves so we don't see the power-grabs they are pulling.  That's not new in this country.  It's always been that way, especially since the '60's.  We have to do what our heart desires.  In the end, we will prevail, I know it.  Always remember we're not the first to have to fight for our rights and acceptance.

      Earlier to day, my wife and I were out doing a couple of errands, we took her car so she was driving.  After about five minutes in the car she said: "I guess your sense of smell is getting old, because you are wearing too much perfume."  Rats, I thought I was using my perfume sparingly, but perhaps not.  Is my "smeller" actually getting old, or, do I simply adjust to the fragrance after I apply it?  Not sure the reason, but I guess I need to be more sensitive to how much I am wearing.  I myself, have experienced the perfume cloud that surrounds certain women, so, I know how easily perfume can become overpowering.  I took my wife's comment to heart for next time when I'll be sure to spritz only once.  Where perfume is concerned, less really is more.
