Apologies - Not sure why this link doesn't convert to showing the picture. I'm sure I've used the same process as previous to copy the link from Onedrive

I really didn't want to get out of my tights today after my workout but they're just no work appropriate. Today is a thin polyester top from Loft that my sis gave me for xmas and some parachute slacks gifted/hand me down from a staff member. Necklace is a nice middle eastern thing I found at a thrift shop. Shoes are DSW.  Socks aren't really right for this but they don't show unless I cross my legs and it's COLD today. lol

I'm realizing I have A LOT of clothes for just coming out 6 months ago.  🤪

This blouse really exemplifies the challenge of sleeves for taller trans women. These were meant to be wrist length.

It actually looks like a normal 3/4 length sleeve. It still works well for you @Bri2020 but I’ve had the same issue on a few tops myself. You look great, btw!

Not sure why the way I was doing this no longer works, but found an alternative. Today's working from home clothes...

You look amazing Niamh.  I'm loving every choice there. The butterfly is gorgeous.  I've realized I like the larger impact/statement pieces.

We keep mentioning workout clothes, so before I go back to civilian attire, this is what I wore to the gym today.

Though I was still wearing my tennis shoes then. I don't LIKE to wear my gym shoes outside the gym. Normally they just live in my gym bag.

 

Hugs!

Looking fit!  Do you use a national gym chain and if so which one?  I'm contemplating going back after I get vaccinated but have some anxiety about being trans in a gym environment pre-surgery.  My lifetime gym said their locker room policy is use the one you Identify with but I'm not comfortable using the woman's lockers when I still have man parts and certainly don't feel comfortable on that side now that I'm growing breasts.  It's all very anxiety inducing.

I would go with whatever gym policy is.

How odd would you feel in the men's locker room with breasts?

You could just not change at the gym so that is an option.

My workout partner thinks I can still drop another 50 pounds. I'm skeptical. She has a female relative of similar height, but I'm built a little thicker.

 

I use LA Fitness. My club is on the smaller side and happens to be within walking distance of my house (big plus). I actually felt the same way about the locker rooms, even if I wasn't getting naked (I shower at home because my skin is ultra delicate and I'd have to schlep like 100 pounds of product along with me. Also I CANNOT touch chlorine because I go up like an Alka-Seltzer tablet so public filters make me nervous.) Anyway, they have a unisex bathroom/changing room that I was using from the point I learned it existed until after my bottom surgery. Single occupancy, but I felt SO much better using it even if I did have to wait now and again for Xena (that's really her name, and she was the only other member who usually used that restroom/changing area. She liked privacy for her showers).

 

Hugs!

From experience, I can tell you "pretty odd" like a spider on a hot plate. It got weirder when somebody noticed and said, "You've got some balls coming in here with those."

 

Seriously, what do you say to that?

 

YMMV though because I've ALWAYS felt super-uncomfortable in a men's locker room.

 It depends on what I'm wearing. If I have a blouse or dress that comes up near my neck I prefer long pendant type necklaces. That butterfly and another teardrop style necklace I got from a private seller on ebay for £2 each. And I love the butterfly.

I find it strange that straight people worry so much about other peoples body parts. What they have or don't have LOL.

Transphobes are the worst when it comes to worrying about stuff like that.

Transphobes are EXTRA creepy. I mean I can look at another woman and think, "Damn, I wish I had a butt like that." A transphobe will look and think, "What's in her pants?"

 

Who does that?

Sorry...Saw this and my inner silverback came out and instantly thought of something far worse and would be totally game for battle, worst then a charismatic raging D&D barbarian.

Though, I'm not you, if I was in your position my answer would lean more towards using snarky charism like a Bard trying to defuse a barbarian using the truest of weapons... comedy.

 

"You bet right! But not by choice... honestly I prefer the top weights to the bottom ones. Balls just don't make the cut for me. Also once again...not by choice. We all have preferences, too bad we can't have everything we want right away. Crazy world right?"

 

On the main topic, love your black tang top with the the dead lifting trash panda. It's adorable.

I'm now wearing stretch bell-bottom leggings a thermal turtleneck and a thin oversized sweater.

😅Need to do my butt exercises or else there will be problems with movement.

Yeah, that was the safe answer. Other things that flitted through my mind:

 

"I'm sorry, but if I leave them at home, they cry."

"I assure you, balls had nothing to do with it."

"Where did these come from?!?"

 

Still, I'm a white woman from the Midwest. We're not all that confrontational most of the time.

Part of my personal hate of just simply walking around alone in the city dressed female is pigheaded nutbags that think I don't take notice to there pathetic attempts to catch me with misogyny. I scared my dad once on the train cuz had the nastiest bitch face on simply because it keeps the majority of crazy asswipes away. Thing was I was relaxing and felt a dude plop ontop of me randomly, not the first time and it's rude, but it was just my dad thinking he was being cute...My looks are deceiving and I will be the rabbit from Monty Python's holy grail movie. City life guts your innocence quick and leaves you with lots of practice. Before you know it, you find yourself smiling like a wolf but it's not a smile, your fangs just constantly are on display.

Went to the laundromat; Denim skirt, black leggings with my black suede boots, and a very warm sweater.

Back home; swapped the sweater for a lighter shawl.

The advantage is mine then. As a trans-woman in her 50s, nobody is especially interested in approaching me. Also, the public transport in and around Detroit basically doesn't exist so getting creeped on while on a train or bus ride isn't likely. Just doesn't happen.

 

Then again, I can abduct 225 pounds and maintain it easily. I can crush a skull between my thighs like a robin's egg.

What I wore to work today. I was seeing how my new silicone breast forms fit and looked. I work as a delivery driver for Jimmy John's, but honestly I never took my parka off.

I'm apparently a fat 165-170 lbs at 5'2" but my family have heavy muscle density and tend to sink like stones unless we maintain swimming like sharks. Clothing that fits for me properly is hard to find generally.😓 Tend to stick to baggy look cuz I just curl up in the extra layers. Stretchy turtleneck thermals shirt and cargo pants are my jam.

OK, so you're more built like a friend of mine (she's a touch taller but until she told me I could have SWORN she was taller than 5'4"). Doesn't mean anything though, she's been practicing martial arts since junior high and could probably kill me if she wanted to. Then again, she has an intersex condition and is sporting more testosterone than I am on any given day. I've never seen anybody give her a hard time either, but she goes to a private martial arts gym so I imagine the etiquette is different.

👍 They look natural to me. Even with real ones, you need that Parka outside in the cold, it hurts less. My favorite coats are the ones that are like sleeping bags with arms and fur trim.

      @Bri2020 love the dress!! @Elizabeth Star looking good! It is amazing what HRT will do.  Often the changes are subtle and take time, but they are there. I looked at pix of myself from 12 and 18 months ago and the changes are amazing!   And, yes, I am loving post-surgery. There is still swelling, but being in the right body is an amazing feeling. A couple years ago it was just a dream, so far away, but dreams do come true.

      @Mmindy @Bri2020 actually I’m about an hour away from Frederick too.  And similarly about an hour from Reston.  I’m at my daughters house near Winchester va.   Bri a number of years ago we lived in Centreville. We would load the bikes up and ride the W&OD, or the C&O, the Curtis or Mount Vernon trails. Ive ridden. All except the C&O from beginning to end. I’m probably 30 miles short on the C&O western end.  That’s something we miss, all the bike trails we used to ride.   Willow

      Attempting play the male "pursuer" role in dating. I am sooo just not wired for that.   That, and the time a few years ago when I had to move in with my dad for awhile. Yeech!   Coming out to my mom was actually, I won't say easy, but definitely somewhat less difficult by comparison.

      If a trans athlete ever wins a big match/race/event, you'll hear never ending bitching and hysterics from the Right, but when a trans athlete doesn't win, you will always hear...crickets.   Carolyn Marie

      Quitting heroin and all the ensuing years of getting my ish together. Amazingly, part of my strategy was: grow your hair long, quit wearing men's clothes and shoes, act like a lady, figure out what "being yourself" means, and "fit in". As you can see, some of those goals were contradictory, but I didn't know it at the time. Heroin was my self-medication of choice. Somehow I managed to get through a graduate program in mathematics with no drugs despite dealing with ptsd and psychotic depression. I'm doing MUUUUUCH better now. What's interesting about this question is that I realize in retrospect that some of the hardest things I've forced myself to do have been along the lines of giving up self-destructive behavior. Besides dealing with drug addiction and mental illness, this also includes discovering more truth about who I am and consequently shedding habits, behaviors, and sometimes people that/who were holding me back. Thanks for this thought provoking question @Shay.

      Not to discount the existance of male privledges, of course, but personally, I always felt weighed down and held back by maleless, like it's just one giant ball of social restrictions, and also causes people to view me with suspicion by default. Always hated all of that. Envied the heck out of girls for all of that, even with the bad things they're more likely to have to deal with. It's like, "Umm, I volunteer to trade places! Any takers? No?..."   I haven't found too much physical issues with wallet in the back pocket, but that's probably because I have an excess of built-in padding back there, 😋. But lately I've taken to keeping it in front pocket anyway. I figure it's harder to get pickpocketed that way.

      Me....everytime it happens lol.... Just this Saturday I broke one trying to one grip the air fryer basket thing while scrubbing it, and it slipped and the pressure went all to my nails. Luckily it didn't break all the way to the bottom so was able to file it down and still have it be almost 1/4" long, visibly shorter than the others, but at least not just a finger nub.

      I’ve circled back to an old outfit. Just thought it would be fun to post a then and now. The first picture is the same one from page 1 of this thread, back in November of ‘20 and the second is today. Same clothes just 9 additional months of HRT.

      Nice dress.   Shoes are a problem.  It's hard to find anything bigger than 12, and even those are rare.  (and usually tight)
