    Day 28

    Day 28 Wow, one month down! It's been about two weeks since my last update and have to say it's been smooth sailing. Skin: I have a few random small white heads pop up here and there but they quickly leave. I've managed my dry skin very well. The combination of Jojoba oil and La Roche moisturizer I’m using has worked! Just twice a day and my skin isn't dry at all! I got my aquaphor and even mixed it with a dark lip gloss so now I have a pretty pink aquaphor lip balm, I apply fairly o

  3. I'm in pretty damn good shape but I'm heading to Argentina and Brazil in three weeks, which means Brazilian bikini...ekk! So I am also trying to drop a few pounds before my trip! All the luck in the world to you!!!
  4. Yeah for sure....grab some fish oil, I recommend Nutrasea by Ascenta. If I was you I would go with the oil and not the gel caps, it's cheaper in the end. I take 6g, but that's quite a bit, so start at maybe 2 or 3g a day. I have no problem taking the oil...but some people don't like it. Most health food stores have it! You could also add glucosamine as well. Oh Canada, how I love this big beautiful country!!!

    Day 14

    Thanks for the advice! I do foam rolling on occasion at the gym, I'll be sure to make a point of doing it more!Did you just see us skate all over the Russians????? Americans must be quivering in their seats right now! But in all seriousness....the Canadian vs. Russian hockey rivalry is huge (much larger than the Canada vs. US)...this was a great win for us!
  6. GOOOOOO CANADA! What a hockey game! What amazing bob-sleighers!!!! Wave your red gloves in the air! Back to the topic at hand: Are you taking any fish oil supplements? I'm worried about your 70 year old joints!

    Day 14

    Day 14! Two weeks in! Today was my last day of only taking 40mg, from now on I'll be taking 80mg every day. Skin: No major new actives, a few small white heads around my chin, but nothing crazy. I was however examining my forehead very closely, you know when you get right up to the mirror and could basically kiss it. My pores look like they are larger and full of gunk, but only noticeable that close. My lips continue to be dry, I had a first date on Sunday and almost panicked, b

    Into 4th month what to expect?

    What supplements are you taking? I'm impressed by your lack of side effects Awesome for you!!!!
  10. I'm 5'9 and 140 and my derm has me on 80mg day. This is my second course, I took accutane about 10 years ago, I was probably 5'7 and 120, I don't remember for sure but I think I was on 50 or 60mg/day. It cured it but came back then. I had severe acne, now I have mild/mod. What's funny is my derm never asked me how much I weigh, maybe he just eyeballed me? But people usually guess I'm 10-15 pounds less then I am. I'm not sure how long this current course will last, probably 4-6 months, I

    Day 11

    Day 11! It's funny, when I read everyone's logs they kept saying how fast the time went. During the first couple days of taking Accutane I thought time was crawling and this course would seem like forever....but here I am already at day 11! I'm beginning to lose track of days! I'm taking 80mg today. Just took my first pill with breakfast. I really look forward to each pill and when I pop it I feel happy.....my happy pills! Skin: no new actives! Old pimples seem to be drying up...

  13. Best gloves ever! I have my pair, I wear them all the time. I was out clubbing tonight and the bouncer at one of the clubs said he loved them and that they are selling twice the price on ebay. I use Joboba oil and love it. You can find it in most health food stores and it's pretty cheap. 20$ for a large amount that will last you forever.
  14. GOOOOOOOOOOOOO CANADA! I walk around all day saying that...I also have the Olympic Canadian red mitts. When the olympics is over we'll be three weeks into our accutane experience!!!

    PrettySpotty!: Glad we're doing similar things with our dosages...so far so good! Day 8 Skin on my face is a bit drier today. Overall though my face is looking pretty good, the breakout on my forehead that I got pre-accutane is improving and clearing up. I still feel like I'm going to get a breakout on my chin.....hoping that I don't. I'm not doing very well with trying to drink less often. We just had a long weekend and I was out each night. Then last night was supposed to be a quiet nig
