I’m just back to update this a little bit, I’m still on track, even if I took some time off with my workouts while moving my wife’s apartment for about a week. I am now officially down to 195 pounds! Granted that’s without even so much as my pajamas on but I’m simply proud that I’ve hit a benchmark weight that I know is below my previous low weight of 197 from 17 years ago when I was racing motorcycles...  granted I’m sure my BMI was much lower back then as I was far more muscle than I am now, but the scale I got shows bone density, water content, and fat mass then calculates your BMI and my current BMI is 29.8  so I’m happy to say I am under the 30 BMI limit as of this week !

 I have to laugh, one of the ways I keep myself in check is by simply not putting anything in the refrigerator or the cupboard that would lead me astray!  However it does vastly cut down on my grocery bill! HA!!!

 I went today to the dollar store since they have pickles and jalapeño peppers and minced garlic, plus other things that I like in my salad, so I splurged a little and spend 10 bucks. Not much of a grocery bill, but I’ve got plenty pickles if I feel snacky,  and I‘ve got plenty of things for my salads...  i’ve come to very much enjoy my salad, I look forward to it every day, I’ve been adding regular virgin olive oil since it has a higher Phenol content, and minced garlic, and some balsamic vinegar. When you add in the cherry tomatoes, pickles and green olives it makes for a rather good salad. Sometimes I add in protein  if I don’t have some in the morning for breakfast, and this may not sound appealing to everyone but I absolutely love sardines, and guess what? the dollar store has sardines too! So I’m always well stocked. All of that makes for great omega-3 content as well as anti-blood clot factor from the virgin olive oil, garlic, and tomatoes, I add to that my regular vitamin routine of vitamin A, vitamin E, and a super B complex with biotin to get my hair growing nicely.  I almost forgot about Kiwi fruit, I have two kiwi fruit for breakfast most mornings as it is also great for lowering blood clot risks as well as just being darn tasty!

I’ve been very good on my routine of one hour and 10 minutes of stationary bicycle every evening and often take one break per week or sometimes two breaks per week if I have group meetings or other appointments that would keep me from exercising at a reasonable time.

This has all become part of my daily routine, and that is absolutely key for me, it simply becomes easy when it is just a routine and I am completely invested in the process and looking forward to going below 190 pounds, then I will have a new goal of 180 and so on and so on, I find it’s easy once I’m invested in the goal and have the routine, but I think that’s probably true for most of us.

      This link is from 2017 which means it has aged out of a site.  I got the link to open, it may be restricted in your area though.

      I've had days like that. I've also had days when the only reason I got dressed is because I needed to wash my pjs. Today is my one hoodie and a pair of boot-cut jeans. I haven't showered since Thursday and I feel gross. Definitely showering before bed tonight.   Hugs! 
    • ElizabethStar
      I'm still in my pj's. It's 5pm and there's no point in changing.

      Yes, Ma'am, it is wonderful. I think the tgAA meeting is one of the best groups I've ever attended. Literally international, "local" members from all over the US, ages from 18 to ... um ... me and maybe a few others, different takes on their Programs. I'm lovin' it, and I'm sitting here dressed for goin' online in company, j ust killin' time waiting for the 3pm PST/6pm where it's already getting dark. See ya' soon, I hope.  ~~Hugs comin' right back at'cha, from Lee~~

      Hi,   we went to the beach today.  See below.     We also went to the recycle center.  I spent the morning using my lawn tractor bagging leaves and pine needles then loading them into my utility trailer.  I like @Jandihave overdone it.  I had planned to do more tomorrow and take another load but I’m having second thoughts.   @KymmieL I am tired of living as two people also.  I am trying to work on that, sort of one friend or group of friends at a time.  It’s a slow process but it’s the best I’ve got.  good luck with the transfer.   Willow

      Oh HAPPY DANCE!  I just got invited to go on a ladies weekend to Savannah GA in May!  The group is mostly people I only know through social media, it's a group called Ladies Of Football which I was invited to when I came out on Facebook under my Miami Dolphins Superfan personna.  One of the girls even invited me to be her roommate for the weekend to reduce costs.  They all know my Trans status.  I can't wait. There will be about 20 of us crazy football fans from all over the country so we have a built in conversation starter .here are two ladies that I least have met from my football game days but that was from before coming out. My wife is super supportive and encouraged me to go. SHe does ladies retreats/getaways a couple times a year and knows I've always wanted to go to one.

      @Jackie C. I hope I get an ally judge, but if I don't, I'm going to look into legal aid for a low income lawyer that will be able to help me. Thank you for the advice.     XOXO Holly!
    • Jackie C.
      Happy St. Patrick's day!   Also happy second birthday. May your treatment be everything you hope it will be and more besides.   Hugs!

      I finally have an appointment with a VA endo..... March 17 blood work is in, letter if intent is in.... ready to start HRT!!!
    • Jackie C.
      The only real reason is that you've encountered a trans-hostile judge who has decided that they have something to prove today. I was fortunate in that my judge is an ally (and a friend of my attorney). While they're uncommon, they do exist. If you encounter one, you appeal the decision and try to get it overturned. For that, I'd get an attorney.   Hugs!
    • HollyNoel
      Thank you @Jackie C.. I'm going to go to that site and have a look around. Thank you so much.   @Charlize I really hope it goes that smooth, Ive no idea what to do if the judge says no. But then again why would they say no. I'm not changing my name for any other reason than to have a name that fits my better.   @LusciousTheLock I mean Tamsyn. I'm glad you got to sign your true name, I bet it felt great. I'm going to have to get new glasses also, I to am looking forward to getting my first female glasses. It's something that I've been thinking about for months. I'm not afraid of getting female glasses, I just have to get the funds together to afford them, that's why I haven't made the move yet.   @Jackie C., @Charlize, and Tamsyn, After I see that you all have done this, I know that I can take that step and legally and publicly be Holly. I know it's scary and not impossible.   Thank you girls XOXO Holly!
