      Guys, I just feel so defeated.


      I have lost 120 pounds and I am left with excess skin. My arms hang and flap, my stomach droops and hangs and occasionally gets a rash, everything sags and I just look like mush below the neck.


      I feel defeated because I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon to see about removing my excess skin and found out how much it would cost.


      $18,000


      My car was only $13,000. 


      I know this is purely cosmetic but weary. I've worked so hard to get to where I am and to know that I can actually have the body I want but money being in the way is just really disheartening. For the time being I am going to try to pick up side jobs and save every penny that I can because there are a few things that need to happen before I can even consider taking out a loan for this.


      1) Loan from WLS needs to be paid off

      2) Car needs to be close to being paid off

      3) Need to have at least half the cost saved up (this would be $10,000 [half because I would also need the loan to help cover my pay for when I will be in recover])

      4) Be approved for a personal loan/line of credit for $10,000


      Now, I could split the procedures up to have smaller up front costs (arms alone are $6,000) and that may be the route that I go so that I am not living with this skin for the next 5 years.


      We'll see how it goes.

      Ok guys - I'm trying to win this contest to meet this killer band called The Struts. If you click the link below and watch the video in it's entirety it earns me 45 points. That is 45 entries into the contest! It would mean a lot to me if you could spare the 4 minutes or so <3

    • RTX 2015 Checklist

      2 years ago

      stxrlesseyes

      RTX is just around the corner! This means my mind is going crazy on what to take and if I really need it during my time in Austin or not so this journal will serve as both a check list for me and maybe a good reference point for first timers. I know there are a few of these floating around so make sure to check those out for some more input.

      NECESSITIES

      • Clothing - I always pack more than you need because accidents will happen and you never know when you might need a change of clothes plus – a girl likes to have her options! I will be staying for 5 nights so at minimum I will pack 7 change of clothes. If you plan on buying shirts at the con then around 3 tops packed will suffice.
      • Hygiene – yes this is always talked about a lot when mentioning cons so lets get it out of the way. Please remember to bring (or purchase in ATX since there are so many airline rules about this stuff) things like soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrush, etc. You are going to be in Texas. In August. In the middle of a heat wave. You will reek if you do not wash with soap or use deodorant. ‘Feminine Care’ items are also a must even if you do not expect for it to arrive during the stay.
      • Comfortable shoes – they don’t look pretty but your feet will thank you. Trust me. I wore flats and had to wait in line for close to 4 hours at RTX 2013 to meet AH. It only took about 30 minutes standing on that concrete to make my feet hurt.
      • Charging Cords – iPhone, 3DS, Camera, etc.
      • Registration/Autograph Email – Make sure to have a hard copy of these in case something goes wrong with your phone. Always great to have a back up.


      EXTRAS!

      • 3DS XL and Games – gotta pass the time in line some way. You always don't want miss the huge amount of street passes that you can get at RTX.
      • External power source – There are lots of outlets throughout the convention but if you are stuck in line and need a quick charge then this is perfect. I use something very similar to THIS
      • Polaroid & Film – Let’s take a polaroid together! This is a perfect way for me to have physical photos because I always forget to print them off of my phone.
      • Selfie Stick – please don’t judge but this just makes it so much easier to take a photo in a large group.
    • What do you want to know about RTX/Austin?

      I know there are tons of guides out there but I would love to share my experience with RTX to anyone who wants to listen.

      What do you want to hear about?

      Best places to eat downtown? Places you must visit in Austin? What is RTX like on the main floor? Just leave a comment with your question and I'll get to writing out a journal going over all the answers. :)

    • #TBT: RTX 2011

      2 years ago

      stxrlesseyes

      With so much RTX 2015 hype going on I figured I would share some about my experience at the very first RTX!

      I can't believe it was four years ago. I was only 18 at the time. The morning that we left I was soooooo sick. The whole weekend I had a fever and I'm sure many people thought I didn't want to be there but I felt so crappy- I tried to make the best out of the cards that I was dealt. (so don't be so harsh with how terrible I look in my photos).

      It's crazy how I thought 2011 was so huge and crazy and then to see it now is just... unbelievable. The staff were troopers the night of the 'opening' at the hotel and stayed so long signing and taking pictures. Jack gave us our tour of the office that was still fairly new to them (if memory serves) and we couldn't imagine them growing out of that huge building. RTX 2011 also included my first visit to the wonderful Alamo Drafthouse! Basically it's Rooster Teeth's fault that I spend so much money going there now.

      I made some friends there that I still talk to and get to meet up with at every RTX like @fthreat, @twins1990, and @jakey and it's great to share those memories!

      Some pictures:
