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.

      I bought lots of crap that got thrown away soon after purchase. Took me ages to work out my size as my top half is four sizes bigger than my bottom half. Its the broad shoulders you see   (But lovely legs though haha). I'm guessing my first item that I enjoyed wearing and looked / felt good were some skinny Jeans. I never cross-dressed before explaining / accepting my mental state and exploring the idea of being Trans with my wife.

      It's interesting to read this. Apart from the stuffed animals I have the only thing I can think of is my deliberate cultivation of a childlike attitude to learning such that I can learn and accept new ideas more readily; ie I try to avoid blinkered views and similar restrictions which often come with age. In that I have no age bias and fear of appearing childish (in the keeping up appearances sense).   Your last comments on baby talk do remind me of an advert for sweets / candy over here currently which has two policemen in a police car dubbed with childrens voices. People tend to love or hate it. I tend to mimic them and similar but more my sense of humour though.   Tracy

      It's pretty clear that Republican state governments don't fear, or even take notice of, the Biden administration's policies. It looks like the Republican State governments feel they have to move quick while they still have a 6-3 scotus conservative majority until the Dems pack the courts (within the next year probably) to even things up a bit.

      Totally relate. I was locked up in a psychoward ran by Mormons when I was 12-17 years old...sex was used as currency. ...Feel kinda lucky some days that I didn't really know I was being raped. ...Other days I just feel sick and wanna blow my brains out. ...Most days though, I just want....revenge. I guess I kinda had an epiphany one day: I'm not the one who deserves to die. ...Neither are you.  Hang in there. This too shall pass. *big hugz*

      Kimber, I agree with Jackie, your parents were very accepting and supportive. Especially given that society was so different and so much less accepting back 25 years ago. Your parents loved the real YOU so much. It is a wonderful story.   Life would’ve been so much easier for many of us here if our parents could embrace our real identities. I am so glad yours embraced and accepted you so unconditionally. It sounds like an amazing experience.   I’m so sorry to hear that you had lost two siblings within a year back then. That must have been such a difficult period of your life. I can’t even imagine experiencing that kind of loss in such a short time period. We all have different crosses to bear. No journey through life is an easy one.   *Hugs* Susan R🌷

      This is a one of your colors Linda Marie. Your dress really looks nice with the shoes too. Hard to match outfits that close without a large collection. You can NEVER have too many pairs.😉

      If you are having this bad a time, it may be necessary for you to go to a hospital or an urgent care provider and see if they can provide you with some medication to help your anxiety about the memories.  You may have to cut your vacation short to deal with this, or maybe it is the vacation environment triggering you.  Please go and get some professional help before you feel compelled to hurt yourself.

      Looking lovely LM. Kaltia Bras are a constant problem with me too. Lacey bras are so pretty but the lace chaffs my skin. Sport bras I wear a lot just because the seem to hold everything in place just fine. My nice bras I save for special occasions.

      I can’t stop remembering. I’m on vacation. I need to relax. I want it to stop. I can’t forget about what he did. I keep trying to make myself forget with things like overdosing, but it doesn’t work anymore. The memories are so loud. I don’t know how to stop this.
