Yes I want a B as well.  But I’m barely moving at this point.  When I take my measurements and look at a size chart I am a D. Ha hai couldn't fill an A

You talking about wedding ring losing stones brought back a memory. I got married at 18, and unemployed, and my gal 3 months pregnant. I had to buy engagement/wedding ring set from pawn shop. The night before our wedding I decided to clean the rings. I didn't even notice I lost a couple small stones down the sink drain. When putting the ring on my wife's finger at the alter, she noticed. She's a Virgo. They notice everything. She was really good about it. The pawn shop replaced them for a small fee. Lesson learned, NEVER clean rings with drain open. We've been married 50 yrs now.

 

On another subject, I'm really excited. Just got off of phone with my insurance company. I found an LGBTQ doctor in network. Adam Houghton, in Bloomington, Illinois. Only 30 miles from my house. My insur. co. set him up as my primary care physician while I was on the phone. I can go to him after 3rd of nxt. month. I'm jumping for joy!

That's funny. Everyone in my house has at least "B" breasts, even the guys. The women all have at least "D" cups. Both the guys were overweight. The 17 yr old thinned down to normal. The 23 yr old was almost 600 lbs. He's around 300 now. Working hard to get down to 280. He's really strong, but has a lot of extra skin. My 2 older sisters and mom are and were "B" gals. I'm hoping I will be too.

Been there! I had larger breasts when I was just heavy. They're the right shape now though. Tragically, my weight-loss routine is not conductive to huge breasts. Well, maybe not huge. I was hoping for a B. C tops. Still, I'm only about halfway to the point where breast growth generally stops in older gals so hopes remain high.

@Willow I didn’t think about the fuel. I think it just celebrated its 2nd year in the tank. We didn’t get much snow last year. 
 

@Bri2020 I’m holding off on another fashion show for a bit. My friend said she has more clothes for me. 
 

it’s very interesting how I’ve changed. I used to disappear like a ghost at picture time.

I think mine will still grow more. My nipples are still tender, and seem to get hard quite often. I have nice firm "A" breasts now.

Yeah, funny that. I got real camera-shy about the same time puberty hit. Now? Yeah, take a picture. I look amazing.

This is (still) me. Someday soon I hope I will feel less fearful in front of the camera. Working on that self-consciousness demon.

 

Four months into HRT (anniversary was yesterday), I mostly have extremely sore nipples and what might *barely* be called an A cup. I hope the estrogen goddess gives me her blessings in due time.

 

Back to work...

 

Love,

Yes I’m hoping the E goddess friends me soon.  I was on Spironolactone for a year, and Progesterone for nine months before my left nipple showed any signs of life.  That’s when my  endocrinologist gave in and put me on E. Not quite 3 months on that along with the other two. Almost the next day my right nipple woke up.  They both still hurt. I will say I think there has been shape change but not size.  More feminine perk, less male flop.

 

on another note, saw my foot doctor today because of the wet episode yesterday.  The nurse took out my stitches, and sent me to x-ray. No sooner were the X-rays up when in walked the doctor. Looked everything over and decided I was good, healing nicely x-rays showed everything was as it should be.  Told me stay with the boot and the scooter.  I could take the boot off in bed and I could shower but not soak my foot.  All that and three days early!  
 

This girl would do a happy dance but it would end up one footed hopping until I fell on my face.  😃

 

happy hugs

Good evening everyone,

 

I am not an all day coffee drinker so no coffee for me now. I posted this morning about how happy i was to be working from home and being able to stay in girl mode all day, well that lasted for 30 minutes. I got an email for an appointment at the health clinic with less then an hours notice. I did the superman quick-o change-o (minus the telephone booth) into boy cloths and out the door I went. Made it in time and now have received my first dose of the Moderna vaccine. So I guess it was worth it.

 

 

Well the puck drops in 40 minutes so have a great night everyone, see you in the AM at the coffee mess.

That's the way mine started, male flop, hard buds, then shape. And lets not forget PAIN when trying to squeeze through a tight doorway and rubbing nipples on door frame. That's an experience I didn't expect.

 

 Hope we all get the breasts we want.

 

Oh, great news about your foot.

Hey, I almost forgot. Oak island is on soon. Love that show. Maybe someday they will actually find the motherload. The journey is good. Get some interesting facts and theories. Talk later Ladies.

I'm skeptical they'll ever find it but it is kind of fun to watch.

I am still a little fearful myself but I also want to live out in the world as myself. At least here I can push the envelope with my outfits and not receive destructive criticism. But this isn't FB. You hit that submit button and it's there to share. It's been helping me push myself along.

 

Congrats on hitting 4 months. For me things ...Well I thought my girls were growing a little at 2 months but then I had a, I guess say surge 6 months later. According to my trusty cloth measuring tape I'm a 34D and still fit fine in a 36a but maybe could be a B. I'm  throwing in the towel on this for a bit. I'll just wait see what happens. I'm planning to have made a final decision on BA by this next fall.

Good Morning! Coffee is on. Took yesterday off of work. Had to clear the driveway twice. Took a nice afternoon nap. Back to work today. 

 

Have a great day everyone!

Liz, I guess I have an advantage in the fact that I'm retired. Even so, I don't look forward to meeting up with my old boss and some coworkers that have been my friends foe around 30 years. I feel for you. 

 

My wife didn't turn off the tv till 2:30 this morning. She has severe health problems and can't sleep normal hours even though she takes sleeping meds. Her going to sleep woke me up. Then I just lay there with my brain racing and getting depressed about what I'm putting her through. She says It's ok with me changing, but I still feel like a total -censored-. She really can't leave me because of her health. I'm basically her home care nurse. She is in bed 22 hours a day on average. I feel guilty for being so excited about finally getting to change. So here I am again sitting in front of my computer doing a digital jigsaw puzzle, eating, being depressed, and dumping on you. I hope I'm not bringing you gals down with me.

 

Chloe, I think I have a transwoman relative with your name that lives around the Quad Cities. If it's you, please don't mention me to family yet. My wife's family is really a vicious bunch. I don't care what anyone says to or about me. I just don't want to make it harder for my wife. Thanks.

About five years instead of the 2-3 for younger girls.

A friend of mine keeps hammering this into my head. It's a hard lesson to learn because I really enjoy helping people. So let me share her wisdom with you. It's not "young" lady wisdom, she's 68. Anyway, the lesson is: You need to learn to take care of yourself first.

The logic is that you can't help anyone if you're a mess. If you pay attention, people who give their everything to their long-term sick partners tend to die first. Don't do that. Make your wife comfortable and as happy as you can, but do not neglect your own self-care. You matter too.

 

Hugs!

@Jamie68, no that's not me. I am further east than the Quad Cities. I would never out anyone anyway. I have family members who would never understand me, so I get it.

I totally understand this. It's pretty much what I'm going through. Watching my wife slowly fade away. Settling with my own issues has been the best thing I have done. Since I started hrt my ability to handle stress has greatly improved. If I had waited I would have self destructed by now.

Good morning everyone, happy Wednesday. A later start for me this morning. Felt good to sleep in a little, but I missed my morning exercise today. I've had the first cup of coffee already and looking to start my month-end projects today so I don't get bogged down on Friday and have to work late into the weekend. Otherwise it's been a much more mellow week this week compared to last, I think because everyone realizes that we'll need to wait a bit for the system to catch up on the vaccines.

I speak with caregivers regularly, and the frequency I repeat something like this is extremely high. In fact I am giving a presentation about self-care next week that I'm calling "Being Kind to Yourself." I understand where the sacrifices come from, and there are many noble reasons. In talking with caregivers especially for the first time, I often ask them to share with me something they did for themselves in the last week. It is an epiphany for many when they struggle to name anything.

 

@Jamie68 I'm sorry to hear about your wife. Please don't worry about dragging me or any of us down, we're here to support each other and I'm happy to read that starting transition has helped your mood and stress level.

 

@ElizabethStar Thanks for the congrats! I keep wondering when (or if) I'll have a surge of growth, but if I listen to my partner, she keeps saying I've already got breasts at this point. So I guess I should take that as an indicator. Or maybe it's just because she's a little hung up on them because they're the one of the most obvious signs of my transition.

 

Hope you all have a fabulous day!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I retired before I realized who I was.   Since I worked for the city here, I sometimes meet former coworkers at festivals and such.   It can be a little weird.    I just tell them “I’ve been through some changes.”   LOL

I still have to learn this. Because most of the time i don't give 2 shites about myself.

 

Oh, yeah. My wife is a real gem. So get home from work last night. everything is normal, after her bath. She sits on the couch nodding off. like I said normal. after 11 my youngest comes home. He has this I had a bad day look.

him: "Mom, didn't tell you?"

me: Tell me what?"

 

So he proceeds to tell me on his way to work. probably not ten minutes after he left the store for a visit. Some lady pulls out in front of him. he winds up t-boning her. Luckily he had slammed on the brakes and the airbag didn't pop. He was shaken up. The truck is still drive-able. or should I say mine and my wife's truck. He is buying it from us. He has made 2 payments to my wife. I let that slide because she payed for it. She didn't have the courtesy to tell me our son was in an accident.

 

I didn't mention this in my post about what happened Sunday. They had used my laptop and had gone into my gmail account to get some paperwork. My gmail account is where I have all my job search and TG info going. I can't password protect this as my wife uses it for her Monday zoom meetings. OH, Well.

 

Still no E. I am going to check the VA web site and see if I can track it.

Well just checked and yes they put it on a dead horse. Idiots at the USPS. They sent it through Denver. Due Friday. sent Monday. 5 days to go 45 miles. So from Cheyenne to Denver back to Cheyenne then to Laramie.

 

Wouldn't be surprised to check tomorrow and it is in Tulsa or still in Denver, NC.

      I have heard that getting those 'feelings' is not a universal experience, but for me it happened and I hadn't read much about that aspect of it so thinking it was real and not just a placebo effect.

      Today will be the first time since May 30th when I can have my morning tea (sorry, coffee fans) at home, have a second cuppa later, and it was very weird to go from barely going far from home since last March to never being there for half a month with no notice.    Anyway, I did have an occasional discussion of transgender issues and also gender roles while away with a mix of people who know about me and those that don't.    Couple highlights...having one of my mother's newer friends accidentally refer to me as my mother's daughter, that was nice to hear at least once if it was quickly apologized.    And then my son-in-law (who I 'came out to' by telling my daughter that she could tell him everything she wanted to, just that I was emotionally spent to do it right after her) dropping in a proper pronoun of me that I almost missed it and actually asked if he did so the next day. (yes).

      Hi All,   Today I noticed I've become a 'senior member' on this site...😠   Not happy at all, makes me feel instantly old. 😄   I still feel so young in this journey...   Just today, I went out to 'test the waters' with a new (too expensive) Gaff I bought from the UK. Turned out...It wasn't the Holy Grail.😒   I put it on over a high waisted tummy control panty Over that the gaff...then don a (leave nothing to the imagination) pair of just above the knee Yoga pants.   And I was quite happy it look flat enough up front so I went out with more abandon.   I visited 3 markets without any discernible 'clocking'. Got a (non German reference) "hun" from one of the checkout ladies which I took it as I passed. Was wearing a crop tank top and a white translucent cotton shirt over so I suppose looked like a cover up over Athletic wear...   Later though when I returned, was comfortably seated with my legs bunched and tucked up for lunch on a chair when I looked down and noticed (Horror of horror) still a good size bulge.😳   I just can't seem to flatten it fully without resorting to tape which I hate and avoid.😞   I think I'm doing the right thing with the canals but maybe my testicle friends are too heavy or what bc they seem to never stay up....always falling for gravity.   Anyone think I might be not employing the Gaff to its full optimum? Maybe I'm doing something wrong?🤔   ...or is this common with everyone and does a more visually 'water tight' tuck mean having to tape when wearing skin hugging item of clothing anyway? Am I just being too slack reliant on gaff alone to do the work?   (Maybe this should be in the crossdresser section)   I'm contemplating the ills and benefits of an Orchiectomy (still yet to get on HRT) but till then, I'm obsessed with hiding the pair of them. They bother me but I don't want to hurt them either.🙄

      I am sorry you are having to deal with depression and I wish I had and answer for you. I deal with compulsive over eating disorder and at times I will binge eat for weeks until it subsides. The last few years  have been really hard and with covid quarantine on top of that I have put on so much weight even I can't believe it. I just can't control it and at times don't care if I get fatter. Working with a nutritionist but she is so backed up with patients and in the process of moving so its not working out. Are you being treated by professional that deals with depression?

      ...the funny thing is I've always dressed somewhat neutral/femme so people around me tend to think its just me being eccentric.   Today my sister warned me to tone down maybe fall back on dungarees if I was going to visit my cousin (She's a great cook had 12 kids or something ridiculous) in Northern Cali.🤭   But I reminded her that cousin was on my facebook and I have been posting pics of me in yoga pants...galore. Surely she must have put two and two together...🤔   I have half a mind now to show up in a dress.😁

      Hey y’all. I’m planning on coming out as trans at my workplace soon. I only plan on coming out to my department for now, as the rest of the company is elderly cis straight religious men and I feel that they will react poorly.   Many of my coworkers have suspicions of me being queer, and have voiced them, so it won’t be coming out of nowhere.The company I work at has, as far as I’m aware, never had a trans employee and I’m sure it’ll be tough, but I’m sick and tired of the closet.   any advice? What issues or obstacles do y’all think I should expect?    Thank y’all so much for your help! - River     P.S. Do y’all think that bringing a cake when I tell them would be a bad idea? We bring food for our department regularly so I thought maybe it’d be a good idea. Let me know what you think please?

      Hi Vini,   You know what I've found gives me decent 'form' without prejudice to comfort is Dungarees. 🤗   I'm personally allergic to Denim so I get light cloth/cotton types that have a slight flare around the hips accentuating them.   I don't need to be as careful with my tuck which is another benefit.😄   But today I went out with a new B&B Gaff (from the UK...bloody expensive as they say)....and the whole purpose was to test the water with a pair of tight just above the knee (Leave not much to imagination) yoga shorts.😬   It seemed a better flat look than my previous "gaff" so I went out with a bit more abandon. (what you don't know sometimes emboldens you and makes you fearless)😌   OTOH when back at the house following replenishment mission (99cents, supermarket, Trader Joes) to restock fridge and larder raided by Teenagers... I was sitting with my legs bunched up and looked down to notice there was still a bulge which was annoying, another sign of dysphoria.   I still can't seem to be completely satisfied with the flatness (without having to resort to masochistic taping which I avoid)😓   ...but of course somewhat expected I suppose, since I was 'testing the boundaries'.   Still when I was out, I had the checkout lady at the market call me "Hun" (and not the German kind) so I reckon it was a pass till I of course opened my big mouth.🙄   Cest La Vie.

      ❤️Thanks everyone. I'll definitely wear heels next time. My knees are a little achy from another weekend of yard work so I wore the other boots. I'm feeling better now. No compliments,their loss. They could've seen me smile. I think everyone was in a crappy mood today. Maybe it's the retrograde.

      How drastically my life changed for the better. Prior to this I was regularly miserable despite having gone through therapy and couldn't understand why I still felt the way that I did. Coming to terms with myself and coming out as a whole has dramatically improved my social and personal life overall. I would never take back embracing myself for who I am no matter what
