Weight Gain: My Journey

I know I've been gone for a few months. I've been needing time to recollect my thoughts and put myself together. A lot of stressful things have happened that disrupted my life, but I'm back this time. I plan on staying.

I want to share my journey on gaining weight. There's not much information on the web if you're in desperate need in gaining a few pounds. I would know. I've been looking for a long time, and although I've yet to gain weight, I'm trying my hardest to do so. And as I do gain this weight, I'll share my insight with all of you.


So far, I've discovered it's not as simple as just eating "enough calories". This is a damn lie. It's only partially true. Over the last two weeks, I ate a solid 2k calories. I did gain two pounds, BUT I had to constantly eat all day long. Which is not something I can keep up with. Sometimes I do not have breaks at work, which means I work 5-6 hour shifts without eating more that a few hundred calories.


When I gained those two pounds, I had two days off of work. The day I went back to work, I had eaten 2k calories, but I lost a pound? Now how in the world does that make sense? I ate the same amount of calories all three days, but I lost a pound on the last day?


My theory is that on the first two days I ate all day long, making sure that nothing could be digested or calories burned, but on the third day, I went a long 6 hours with only eating 200 calories. This allowed my body to digest everything I'd eaten.


So I'm concluding that something is wrong with my digestion. I don't think I'm properly absorbing nutrients. I have another reason to believe this. I've been dealing with nonstop constipation for a long time. Constipation that can't be just fixed by simple adding more fiber or drinking more water. Neither work for me.


My plan is to eat a whole foods diet, stray away from processed foods, and eat more nutrient rich things.


I shall share my recipes with you on my journey to weight gain. This will be a long road, but I do not plan to give up.


Some people do not understand why I need to gain weight, but I know that I must. My bones pop out. My body hurts. I know it's because I need more nutrition and muscle/fat on my body.


I hope that you will stay for this journey and see me succeed. Who knows. Maybe you'll succeed as well.

My Experience in Healing Rosacea & Acne: Bentonite Clay

So I've never really discussed my regime I use for my face, or actually what I used to use on my face. Am I confusing you already? Good. Because now you shall read on.

Most of you already know I have rosacea. It was very bad to begin with. There's a photo on one of my posts showing the pure redness across my nose and chin. Along with that, I had so many pimples and lots of cystic acne.

Now what do I think caused it? My overabuse of my skin using commercial products. My last post I tried to explain why these face washes are terrible for our skin. I mean, who wants to slatherPPG 15 Stearyl Ether all over their face? They use it in face wash, so why not? Would you still put it on your face, considering its a toxin? I sure as hell wouldn't. So what makes you think that face wash is safe.

Oh yeah, cause the big ole' FDA claims so. Well, guess what? The FDA doesn't give two f*cks about your acne. They need you to develop that acne in order to make them money through the Pha…

Rosacea & Acne: Coconut Oil

So I'm continuing onward with my Rosacea & Acne posts. I see that these are what bring in the most views.

Now this is going to sound weird. In order to moisturize your skin, you need to use a natural oil.

And of course, you're thinking "But that'll make my skin oily!"

Well, yes, of course it does at first. But think about this for a moment. Your skin produces oils. When you use your harsh cleaners on your face, you strip all the oils off your skin. Which is totally not good for you. So what better way can you balance the oils on your skin? By replacing the oils with a natural oil: coconut oil, to be exact.

When I first started learning about natural remedies, I became intrigued by what I found. For I was determined to heal my scarring rosacea. My face was beat red, and I was embarrassed by it.

So I dropped all commercial products, picked up coconut oil and clay, and I was deteremined to win.

First of all, my skin gets super dry in the winter. So dry that when I put…

My Experience With Proactiv: Rosacea & Acne

Do those Proactiv comercials tempt you? Have you considered more than once on trying it? Are you on the borderline of giving into that temptation?

Well, please STOP, and read my story first.

I've used Proactiv, I have experience with the product, and I want to share my story with you guys. But I must backtrack almost 4 years ago to when I actually used it.

Actually, I'm going to backtrack a little farther back than that...

Well, here it goes:

When I was twelve-years-old, I had the most perfect, flawless skin a girl would die for, literally. I rarely had to use makeup because my skin was seriously that perfect. And it stayed that way for a good long time. I was selfish back then, not realizing how damn lucky I was. I can't imagine how many girls envied me.

But then, I got sucked into the world of society and started to feel the need to wear makeup, constantly. That was my first mistake. After I began wearing makeup as a need to feel "pretty," I started to develop a…
