I researched based upon a product I was given years ago and found this was the best value.  It works well and is waterproof.  Its thin and flexible.

@KymmieL sounds like a busy day.  I agree, there is nothing like the aroma of wood smoke wafting in the air.  And making your coffee over a wood fire, ahhhh.  Just the thought is relaxing.  
 

I have an intersex friend.  Her parents raised her male. She got married, they had a baby and now that baby has two moms.  She is working to switch her sex.  Her doctors changed up her meds dramatically a few weeks ago and she is really feeling all the girl pains and emotions.  So Mother Nature doesn’t just mess with the weather, she’s really messing with my friend too.

Good morning, so busy lately I usually only have time to read.  Also, because of my location, my smart phone is the only internet I have.  Every word I've ever typed on this site has been done one letter at a time with my index finger.

 

@KymmieL congratulations!  If you haven't already, I'd get a cloth tape and measure yourself everywhere.  I've heard it helps when you start wondering if you're imagining changes or they are really happening.

 

I joined my first transgender support group this week on Zoom and I really liked it.  Looking forward to next week.

 

Happy Friday!

Not even autocomplete! You poor dear! That sounds positively dystopian!

Happy Friday everyone!

 

So I did a silly thing this morning. I did my usual exercise routine in the park with the near-zero wind chill. Felt like a popsicle when I returned home, through I did move enough to generate body heat. Have been drinking coffee like it's going out of style. Just wrapping up the loose ends from the work week and looking forward to the weekend. My partner and I were talking about trying more recipes from the America's Test Kitchen plant-based cookbook. With the freezing weather, warming up the house by cooking sounds like the perfect thing to do. There is a hearty veggie lasagna recipe that's calling out to us.

 

@ElizabethStar I was disappointed too. The issue with the jacket was the overall length. It was tailored for a much shorter person than me (I'm 5'11"). The hem hit at the worst possible place, drawing all attention to the part of my waist where I still need to lose weight and made it clear that I don't have the hips for a pencil skirt. The sleeves where also a little shorter than I would have wanted but not a disaster (such a common issue). At least the skirt's length was ideal, the navy blue color was what I expected, and I ordered the right size otherwise. Maybe I'll look for a suit ideal for tall women to help with the jacket length.

 

@Ann W Now that's determination! It's always lovely to read your posts. Hope things open up more in California so you can move forward, and glad to hear the Zoom support group was such a positive experience!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

All I had was a flip-phone for a looooong time.  It was maddening.  As a confirmed Luddite, I resisted a smart-phone for a long time.

Audrey, What's in the lasagna? I like to make a spinach one.

@Jamie68 The recipe calls for eggplant, zucchini, and mushrooms, and the sauce is tomato based and filled with garlicky and basil-y goodness. We were especially intrigued because the "filling" is not cheese at all but actually cooked cauliflower and cashews - so it's vegan-friendly! It will be very interesting how it turns out. The weekend can officially begin!

Well I'm still using an iPhone 5. I believe they had these on the Flintstones.

Wow, sounds good. Let us know how it turns out please.

Good afternoon 

 

I do most of my posting with an iPad.  I could use a computer but I choose to use the iPad.  Personally I will pick suggested words if it guesses right but I have the problem quite often that I type the word i want and it gets changed after I move on.  
 

I guess everyone is dealing with a cold day today. I tend to nap when it’s like this.  I haven’t been outside since Tuesday and I’m not likely to go outside anytime soon. I don’t have any appointments so no reason to go out except boredom.

 

take care, our weekend is here.  Kymmie I guess yours is about over.  
 

Hugs

Ann that's a a good idea.  I will have to dig out a tape measure.  I think my wife is wanting growth faster than me.  She said it looks like my chest has already started showing..  I laughed and said I wish.  Just bra padding. 

 

I joined a zoom group this week also.  2 of the 5 girls on were new to the group.  Great group though.  They do a hike in the area everywhere weekend that is said to get a bigger group. I plan on going to that tomorrow.

Right now I think my body is just thankful just to get hormones back in it. Being on Major blockers for about a year. My own hormone producers may have shut down. As the Dr said. I need some type of sex hormone.

 

So far nothing on the job front. But I ain't really pushing it. Moving in the winter isn't my idea of fun. But if it happens it happens.

 

Hugs,

Kymmie

Good morning Gals.  Having coffee, toast, and granola with yogurt this morning. No news. Same old thing, seems Corona has shut down all the electrolysis joints. Gonna keep looking though. 

Supposed to get maybe 10 inches of snow here. looking forward to some real snow.

Good Morning! On my second cup of coffee. Slept later today. @Jamie68 Yes, the snow is coming. I am going to make sure I have enough gas for the snowblower and run to the grocery store for a few items. My cart seems to always want to go down the cosmetics aisle. 

 

Stay safe and healthy!

Hugs,

Why am I up so early?...again. Oh, that's right, the kids need to be let out. 4am. It's not fair. They come back in and just fall back to sleep.

If I ever run out of eyeliner or eyebrow gel the world will end. But for me not wearing makeup really means not wearing full makeup.

 

Starting second cup-o-coffee.

Yeah, that's why I'm up too. Someone was singing the song of his people in the bathtub between bouts of batting at my head for attention.

@ElizabethStar @Jackie C. My little chihuahua who sleeps with us likes to wake 3 - 4 am. He starts liking our faces because he wants to eat and be let out. Then he goes back to bed.

Remember the year we got 23 inches overnight? I got stuck at work for 2 days.

That's why I like dogs. They give you kisses in the morning.

Same here. Our little one jumps one the bed and presses his nose to mine until I wake up. It's cute and would be a lot cuter if he could wait an hour or two longer.

On another subject, I'm sure you've noticed our boobs get larger on one day and smaller on the next. It would be nice if they would just have the larger days. They don't even grow at the same rate. Try to disappear when laying down. Oh, the things us girls have to put up with. LOL

I hope I haven't offended anyone with my last post. It seems to have gotten awful quiet around here. If I have, I'm sorry.

Not me. about the only thing that offends me is being misgendered or dead-named.

 

I haven't noticed then being larger one day and smaller the next or anything like that. Although lefty is bigger. I really hope I'm the only one who sees it. I can't and never have been able to sleep on my back. I sleep on my side/stomach clutching a pillow. My girls have been getting in the way a lot sleeping like I do.. I am not complaining!

      Even before I began my journey, I was always fascinated by hourglass figure. I was, of course, making up some silly reasons why I would need a waist-trainer ("it helps with weight loss") or corset. With the beginning of transition, it only made sense and became just a natural hope to achieve it. Currently, I can get a fairly good resemblance with steel-boned corset laced up all the way. And I absolutely love the feeling. One additional benefit, it helps with the posture so it is another reason to use it at least around house if you spend plenty of time sitting.   Cannot comment much on the padding, as I was starting with very non-masculine figure waist-down, and new fat redistribution only enhanced those areas to a point where shaping clothes are new reality in my future 🙂

      Facial Team uses a private contractor, a trans woman, who is quite skilled at photo shop.   She tries to only show you what is realistically possible.   They are only interested in removing male puberty damage as much as possible and some aging in my case.  I hope it is OK to mention FT here, they are a wonderful organization.      ---WILLOW---

      Some films I especially liked The Dress You Have On (YouTube omelleto channel) Normal (2003 with Tom Wilkerson and Jessica lange) The Crying Game Transamerica Zerophilia The Danish girl Call me by your name Hedwig and the angry inch The normal heart My life in pink   Any others you recommend?

      Holly that top certainly does push the PG label.  A bit close to X.     I once dressed a bit over the top.  After all i had somehow noticed the women with short skirts  and low tops more than the "plain" ones.  It was also fun at first to excite that glance from men.  Time has lengthened my skirts and yet somehow i feel just as feminine even in dirty jeans and top working the farm.    We all have our styles which makes the world go round.   Hugs,   Charlize

      😉 lol I am very well liked at work but, problem is, son works there as well and doesn't like talking 'bout "my issue".   Big rigs? Used to drive a '78 "extended hood" KW aerodyne  with a "3408" when cabovers were the standard (55/60' length laws)
    • ValerieRun
      I have a similar style top, also sleeveless but a bit wider should straps, and while it’s on a hanger it does look a bit “adventurous”.  But when I wear it it flows perfectly over the contours of the bra (bra cups needs to be separate enough though). Of course, when you bend over it will hang down and show the bra but it’s inevitable. And you will be tempted to adjust it to a perfect position all the time 🙂 But it is absolutely lovely once you get used to it.

      Had an unusual comment from my youngest son. We had gone out for our Friday night dinner out. Our son met us at the restaurant. While we were eating. He comments nice color finger nails. It wasn't a sarcastic comment either.   Kymmie

      I used Faceapp for a bit of fun and this was the result.   But honestly, I think I prefer my profile picture which is all me, with just a little photomagic makeup.

      Yea, all my friends now do have big hearts, and I know they care about me. Just like I care about them. Its just hard to look at these woman some days. Knowing ill never be as good looking as them. They do say I look good, and am beautiful, but I wonder if they really mean it or are saying it because they are my friends. I'm hoping its because I really am beautiful. Its not like we are in competition with eachother over men, and they know im not in to men.

      Wow Lus You are going back a bit. I would love a picture of that I havent seen one of those in ages. Many years ago I had an Avenger with GT badges stuck on it. It wasnt a GT in any sense of the word. Drop me a picture when you have time. I was actually always brought up with Fords. My old dad had numourous Mk1 Cortinas. My only real dip in the ford ocean was a Mk1 facelift Capri. The first ever car that I brought with my own money. Im so showing my age now lol. Im glad i dont look it   Anyway. Back on topic.   Simply Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  If you use the above as a guide. I think Citreons are an abormination to my eyes. But others love them.  You cant please all of the people all of the time. But why would you want to? Its an old rule of thumb. But I always go for how big a persons heart is. Looks are just skin deep.

      For me I was sick of living everyone else's life that they had planned for me, and me being miserable among many things.    Covid happening was my start of my transition, and I didn't know it at the time, but I got to spend more time as my self. I was still working, but now I wasn't seeing my soon to be ex any more. Once the locks downs were lifted. I was going out, and enjoying my life for the first time, and made friends. With people that supported me.    As for losing things. I had nothing to lose. No kids, no wife, a dead end job. Yes I know i have had easy, but im a lot happier now. 
    • Red_Lauren.
      ,  I did think about wearing a tank or cami under it. I will show my boss a picture of it first, and see what she says.    I think I'm scared to wear it for a few reasons. One as munch as I love my chest, and show a bit of cleavage once and a while. I'm not sure im comfortable  showing that munch yet. Two people thinking it's not age appropriate. While I think its age appropriate for me at 35. Younger or older woman might not. Three being called slurs I can't say here.
