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.

 

Hugs!

@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!

      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
    • michael.yumm
      Hello hello. My name is Michael and I'm pretty new to the TransPulse forums, hence the introduction here in case you haven't figured that out lol. I've been a part of the LGBT community for a handful of years now (5 or so), though only really broke out of my eggshell as transgender within the past year. Prior to that, I was in extreme denial and did everything in my power to try to convince myself I was a ciswoman (spoiler alert! it didn't work). However, after getting my act together come this past November, I've since embraced being who and what I really am, that being a man trapped inside a woman's body.   Outside of the community, I'm just your average white dude who obsesses over cameras and writing really. I have a strong passion for anything to do with cameras or video editing, as well as writing as a whole. I enjoy going out on adventures during the night time as well as spending time with close company.    I hope to meet some new faces along the way here with my time on the forum, and am glad to be a part of such
