    Not the currency pounds either.
    I'm not afraid to share my personal activities with BHW, I've come to know many of you
    and even if you were to hurt me, you're still my great friends. I love you.
    Now onto the serious portion before our Trolls get overfed with kindness.

    I'm calling this Journey
    [​IMG]
    And now you'll see why...

    MODS: If this video violates any rules, please do inform me & I will remove it.


    This was recorded at my lowest weight. Yes I have a messy room.

    I am Funkybunker, and I'm turning a medical issue into
    my very own Roleplaying Game!

    These are my current stats as of now:
    [​IMG]
    HP = My weight in lbs / My goal weight
    EXP = Total Calorie intake (will be updated weekly)
    Health Bar = Fills as I reach my weight goal and regain my health
    Avatar = My face in anime form (because I really love anime)

    Foods I rely on: (Easily Blendable)
    Milk = Half-gallon and will increase to Full-gallon
    Gerber = As close to liquid as possible, gives me some nutrients I'm not able to get otherwise
    Whey Protein = Can gain without it but I'm looking to gain fast and the extra calories help
    Maltodextrin = Pure carb heaven. Carbs are my greatest ally and this is in powder form
    Pudding/Candy/Icecream/Certain bakery items = This describes candy gains. I can swallow if it's mushed/dissolves enough. Fuck diabetes.
    Supplements = To fill the gaps of my repetitive diet. I chew the pills & others are liquid/powder

    My Dysphagia is my Final Boss.
    Even if I'm not able to eat normal ever again, I can be happy knowing I got my body back.
    I'll update you all on the tests for my cure as well, hospital visits are all too common.
    This lifestyle gets expensive because of my really limited food options; meat/seeds & grains/fruit and veggies etc. can't be blended enough.
    It's like a marble in my throat to sum things up.
    So my IM funds this lifestyle, that's enough for me!


    If you're into weird threads and want to "join my party", subscribe and
    let's show Fate who the real boss is.

    If you're trying to put on weight try adding sweet potatoes in your diet, just bake them and mash them up. Also try adding some brown rice into your diet, like make it into a pudding, mix it with a puree and blend it some more if you can't swallow it. Your diet scares me... invest in a really good juicer and blender so you can get your fruits and veggies in. If you need recommendations let me know, I know of some really good ones that I use myself (My blender can rip a hole in space, and my juicer can liquify a solid brick >=D)

    Have you considered making a blog out of this on your own domain? Not by means of profiting off of it but for the support and encouragement to others who also suffer with the same condition.

    Do you still remember how much you weighed before you couldn't eat solid foods anymore?

    I love you FunkyBunker! <3 You'll make it! :)

    Good luck funkybunker! I'm on the opposite track, quit smoking and gained lots of weight, gonna put that down in 2014. I'll subscribe to this journey hope you reach your desired weight!

    My recipe for weight gain: beer, then on average I'll destroy a triple whopper after the beer. Sure fire weight gain....

    I didn't come to BHW to read about kids losing their virginity to prostitutes. It's the lounge, almost anything goes here.

    I'm not sure if your medical condition limits you from lifting weights, but if you can I recommend taking creatine and lifting heavy with low reps.

    Then stay out of the lounge, because these are the kind of posts that you will find here.

    Funkybunker, I am sorry that you are going through this. I know a woman who had the same condition. She had trouble swallowing for years. There is hope though. One day it just went away without any explanation.

    I like your username.

    Proceed.

    Good-luck on your journey. I juice everything I eat by choice! If you are attempting to put on muscle weight I've read a lot of guys try to put 40grams of protein into every meal, three meals a day, through various sources. Don't miss a single exercise routine though if you choose this method. If you want a break from the Whey, give avocados a try if you can get it nice and smooth with some milk. Each whole Avocado contains ~4grams of protein.

    I've posted previously on ShadeDreams thread about vegetarian diets. I explained my juice diet and my method for compiling rounded juices based on vitamin and mineral NEED, not really flavor.

    Are you relying on your sugars from candies? Check out the Banana girl on YouTube. Bananas are a well-rounded source of much needed sugars.


    EDIT: Hookers are people too.

    Wow I didn't know I'd get so much support, especially from some leading members here! I love you too!
    I would love to know of some very powerful blenders/juicers or combos. When this started in early 2011 I was still able to blend most anything (oatmeal, fruits, meats, cereal, pizza!) but gradually lost variety so my diet got bland. I'm no vegan obviously but it sorta turned out that way unless I blend eggs. I choke 24/7 but all it takes to set it off MORE is the skin of fruit, crust or grains in fiber bread, or gristle in meat.
    I am so happy to have success with baby foods because getting those foods in me at all, is better than going without them. My family's joked that I'm destined to be fat because the first things I was able to swallow easier were bakery sweets (and some candies) because they dissolve really well. Problem is my metabolism has always made me unable to get large. I come from an Italian family of pastas and huge dishes, but the rest of my family is heavier and I'm the twig lol.
    I have decided to launch it on Blogger so someone out there knows they're not alone, I know how that feels and it's depressing.

    I used to weigh 170lbs before all this, now the doctors are saying my weight's stabilizing...I don't have a sweet spot for doctors these days.
    There even came a time recently when I was not scared anymore of feeding tubes because I'm tired of being so thin. They won't/can't put one in because I have a Hiatal Hernia, but they won't do the surgery either. They say it's not severe enough (10+ reflux meds did nothing, even took Elavil incase it was nerve sensitivity) it would be a lie to say I haven't broken down sometimes. So I've decided to inspire faith in people instead!

    You can do it man, but cherish every bite...or I'll punch you. lol jk
    Right now I'm taking in 3100 calories daily and we'll see the results, I hear Sumo drink lots of beer and eat tons of noodle/veggie soup. I don't want man-titties though haha.


    Thank you, you have every right to your opinion & I'm happy you gave a little support. Cratos can take cold showers, I can eat(drink) tons haha.

    The training I'm using now with strong results is Doggcrap. I've worked out since before this began and yes I've taken creatine (NEVER take it with alcohol lol) in the past.
    For only $400 yearly I can get a membership at the local gym so I'm looking forward to that. I have to be very careful in my current state but I'm going to get big regardless!

    I'm very happy to hear that about your friend redrubies! My throat can pop back and forth so we're still stumped on the true cause, especially when having this long enough's caused multiple other problems.
    If anything gets old, it's telling everyone I meet the same story.

    Candy Gains just fits what I'm somehow able to "eat" that doesn't catch in my throat as badly. I'm very knowledgeable in nutrition and actually have helped others LOSE weight (seems to be what I'm great at haha). Thank you for your suggestions funkywaltz! It ticks me off to know so much about the breakdown of food (annoys my family) and not be able to apply it simply because my throat won't allow me to eat the more ideal options. Sometimes it's not about what's ideal anymore.
    I am simply not going to sit idly by and waste away, if I'm going to leave this earth soon...people will remember me for something positive.
    Oh and my favorite fruit is bananas.

    Stick with the whey protein big time, you might also want to look into having a casein shake before you go to sleep. Really helps a lot.

    ◕。◕ Mini Update ◕。◕

    [​IMG]

    Actually had success today with Gerber rice! I love having healthier options for Carbs so this is great.
    The potatoes are still in question since they taste wonderful but they don't dissolve completely.

    Tried a different Energy Drink and it gives a kick, and doesn't taste like ass (most cherry flavors do)
    I'll keep everyone posted next week on my full progress!

    I love you,
    -Funky​

    That would be a great idea, a special journey section, then I could start my journey to become a ladyboy there.
