    Breast growth and body changes

    Are they tender to the touch? I heard the same thing about them being painful, though my own experience so far has been occasional tenderness behind the nipple, as they started budding. Losing weight in other areas would certainly make the changes on your chest more dramatic, as HRT encourages fat to hang around more in that area. Growth may become intermittent over time, but I believe they'll keep changing/adjusting for a year, possibly longer. And if you fill out a 40B already this early, sounds like you've got an interesting time ahead!

    Good morning All. Coffees on.

    Relaxing at a hotel in NC. Already had a complimentary breakfast this morning, while watching a bit of The Hobbit on the big screen tv while sitting on a barstool. Some people were dressed ready to go to their respective Easter events. I might go to an aster egg hunt, and watch everyone running around looking for jesus eggs.

    Good morning All. Coffees on.

    Very confusing here today as it is Easter - Happy Easter Everyone! On a Sunday I would normally do the shopping and then have some wine with lunch but it has been more like a weekday so I cooked a joint of meat and made a pot of coffee as well as opening wine without realising lol. Luckily one thing I like (similar to people having different dishes at the table) is to have different drinks at the same time. Well the shops will be open tomorrow and I will have Sunday without the wine 😕 The weather is beautiful though and I have had a lovely walk. Tracy

    Reaching my target weight

    So yesterday my diet went right out the door. I did not exercise and I was drinking my pain away and eating pizza. But the funny thing is that I woke up this morning and stepped on the scale and lost 2lbs. How the did that happen with drinking my pain away and eating pizza then find out in the morning that I lost 2lbs. It is another story on what I was trying to drink away.

    Hobbies?

    I'm mostly into art, music, electronics, aviation and retro gaming, and I walk alot. These things are all pretty gender neutral, so there isn't much concern for me while I transition. Interestingly though, the kind of music I enjoy making is changing. I used to be more into pursuing a death thrash metal sound. This style is so rough, masculine, and it accompanied my drinking. Now I'm getting back into edm. But for my punk rock songs, I'm trying to get more of an edgy fem, crust punk sound. I'm trying to train my feminine voice, for both my music projects and in general. I've been so depressed the past ten years. I lived the facade of a cishet male, and I just stopped creating, but rather destroying. Now that I'm embracing my femininity, I'm drawing and creating again, and I'm so much happier now! I also always enjoyed making jewelry and accessories. Living as a cishet male, I sort of felt the need to hide or repress this. But now that I'm out, I've been getting back into it big time! ❤️ ~Toni
  11. You will be limited in what you are allowed to lift. I remember being a bit upset as a gallon of milk was too heavy! This being said it's good to get shopping done ahead of time. You will do fine. I can't say i wasn't uncomfortable after surgery but it was only for a relative short period. As an addict i used only a very small amount of pain killer and was able to quickly handle the discomfort. Just don't expect to run any marathons too soon. I'm sure i did some posting shortly afterwards as have others here at Trans Pulse. Perhaps you might want to check back in our old posts for more posts. Hugs, Charlize

    Identity

    This Forum is very helpful in providing understanding and reassurance that one is not alone. I have learned a lot about myself in the past few weeks. Just being able to talk about what is going on with me is helping immensely. I think the fact of not living a secret life anymore is a huge burden lifted! The first really big step for me is to finally realize that there is nothing wrong with me, and to be able to admit I am transgender. My wife (of 35+ years) and I recently returned from vacation. Sometimes I don’t think we give enough credit to those around us that they actually know us as well as we think they do. I was able to finally get some time and talk to her. When I really started digging deep and putting the pieces together, then clarity starts to descend. There was a lot of my early life that I shared with my wife, I started painting my nails at around 4 or 5,. I tended to play with the girls, and my best childhood friend and I would dance around as ballerinas. By middle school I was wearing feminine napkins and panties, and then by high school I had added a bra. And as so many others have shared, I would have these things and then throw them away, only to re-squire them later. I didn’t at the time understand why I was doing this. Over the years, my wife has from time to time said things (as a result of something I had done) “you should have been born a woman”. At first I was taking that as an insult, but looking back she was only pointing out my feminine behavior. So, we are discussing all of this, and my desires to go beyond the bedroom with how I present myself. So my wife asked me if I wanted to be a woman. In my mind the answer is absolutely yes, but I didn’t say that. I can’t exactly recall what I said, and the way I said it, but that was when she told me I need to stop the lies and be true to myself. Very good advice! So right now I am not going to physically transition- that would be complicated, but in “getting to know” some of the other members here - it looks like it is Ok to not physically transform to a woman. It looks like I can still be Janae without the permanent physical transition. The big thing is how to handle the GD - and now I get why there can be a need to visit with a gender counselor. (Heck - I have only been to a regular doctor a handful of times let alone a shrink!) Sorry for all the rambling on, but a big step for me to realize and admit I am transgender - and know that those around me have known (or at least suspected) - and are accepting and still love me. Thanks for letting me share. This helps! It is so helpful to have such a great support group.

    Shaving products?

    Hi! I have been using the Braun Silk-épil 9 for years. And Yes it works really well. It is a cordless, wet/dry epilator, but I have chosen to use it dry because I found it loses its strength in less than a year when I have used it in the water constantly. That is unfortunate, and can be costly to buy one yearly, but now that I have been using one without water, it has been going strong without showing any signs of weakening, and I looooove using it cause I hate having hair on my body. I can use it anytime I want, vs. having to paying for wax, laser, or electrolysis. If I could afford laser hair removal I would use laser of course, but until then I will use my epilator. Additionally, I can use it anywhere I go, like I did yesterday at the hotel I’m staying while I’ve been traveling.

    Hobbies?

    Our group started when the local school (night school) stopped running their drawing class which I attended (government cutbacks). We started meeting to keep going, in a local village hall. It started and continues with the small group of friends feeling. We have vacancies but obviously you are too far away. I am almost certain there will be similar groups in your area as it is a common persuit in the UK. It can be a little daunting at first but people are usually very friendly and helpful. For subscription groups they usually have a trial session with no commitment. Tracy

    What Epilator do you use and does it really work?
  17. Hi! I’m very excited for this upcoming Doctors appointment to talk about an Orchiectomy!! My Primary is totally down for this procedure, and they can do it at the same Doctors office. The visit is a formality, and if she is still ok with m having one, I’m going to try and schedule the Orchiectomy ASAP. Other than frozen peas and soft cushions, I would appreciate any words of advice and encouragement once I have the Orchiectomy. Thank you! 😀
  18. Hi! It’s been 40 days since I started my HRT, and wanted to know a couple of questions about breast growth and body changes. I started noticing small changes in my chest area a couple of weeks ago, but I haven’t experienced any of the pain/ sensitivity in that area yet, that so many have described feeling on the forums. I’ve even noticed that my bra is filling out a little bit better. I currently wear a 40B (non-padded). As I look into the mirror there is more of noticeable shape like a woman’s breast, instead of a mans chest. It’s even more noticeable when I wear shirts without a bra. I’ve lost weight in my belly, so that has definitely helped. I’m sure I will see even more of a change when I hit the three month mark, but I was wondering if I’ve only noticed the changes because of my weight loss in my belly or if I can already be getting breast growth without any pain?

    Shaving products?

    I have had issues with ingrown hairs ever since I started removing my body hair. I’ve tried different products, but none have worked. Maybe it’s cause I have curly hair. A friend recommended 99% Aloe Vera, but I found 100% Aloe Vera and it works! i use it especially after showers and when I use my Epilator. I also moisturize my skin with lotion to keep my skin soft, but without my Aloe, none of this would ever work. I also recommend to always exfoliate your skin everyday if possible. I use exfoliating gloves and sometimes I use an exfoliating brush. Soak the exfoliating brush in warm water and then apply soap, so it’s it doesn’t feel as rough on the skin.
  20. I may move this to Religion, but it is daffier that I like to put there. My denomination changes church names names for Transgender peeople. We have a rite to do in the church servide now and a friend of mine was having her Baptismal Name changed as part of the first service of Easter in her parish, and I had talked about is on line on another site. I had a lay ministry thing to do at my church and could not go to her church because of that. I did think of her at my church and added her name into our prayer list. Pretty wonderful as I and she saw the exchange. When I got back home a bit ago, there was a reply from a person neither of us knew yelling all Caps, about how dreadfully sick we had made this person by having our names changed. There were about five long pages describing how mentally ill this made the person, and how they were going to find us and sue us on behalf of their deity. They knew the reason for every burp and rear end gas release, I doubt a medical student knew the symptoms as well as they did. It is interesting that taking care of myself can have such a profound effect on some one else. It the course if the lawsuit they threatened, they were they were going to sue my church as well for not being Xtian.

    Makeup Remover

    Well I bought baby oil and a sleeve of cotton rounds. The first time I tried to use the baby oil on them and my rough beard they tore apart and left more cotton stuck to my beard that cotton balls. So I went back to the drawing board and decided to fold a half piece of paper towel into a small square and use it. That seems to work the best. Then I use Witch hazel. My face is usually still oily so I was with an oatmeal based brown bar soap and rinse in cold water. Then use the witch hazel again. Then I moisturize. By the way, has anyone heard of L'OJESETTE anti-aging creams? I have been using that for the past week for the moisturizer at night and in the morning. I do not notice anything different so far. Maybe after the required 30 days there will be a difference. A review site recommends Stemuderm instead. Maybe I should have read this review before buying. I will let you know if anything works.

    Shaving products?

    Alright. I bought the Aveeno moisturizer lotion and use that to shave with. Before that I use an oatmeal based brown bar soap on my face and the hot towel method. After shaving I use Witch Hazel all over face and apply moisturizer before makeup. Less redness and stinging. I am impressed.

    Coming out to my ma?

    Thank you Jani! ❤️ No it's cool. I know folks here and elsewhere are busy and maybe have their own struggles, it would be unreasonable to expect someone to cater to me immediatly over the wire. I was still juggling in my head what I was gonna do as I was typing and at the last sentence I just decided to retreat before getting hurt anymore. Maybe saying I don't love my ma anymore was a harsh stretch. But I do feel myself growing more distant from her and her toxic ways. This year I decided I'm going to stop denying myself what I need to make me feel fullfilled and happy, stop catering to others and depriving myself. So far it's going great. But I know I'm going to have to defend myself sometimes from resistance. Anyway, I'm back at home, showered, got my pj's on, brushed my hair all nice. Sitting outside enjoying this beautiful warm evening with some green tea, feeling fine! Gotta treat yourself right, ya know... ~Toni ❤️
