@StephieGurl Santa Fe is on the list as a top city for LGBTQ+ friendly and believe they lived up to the reputation as we were treated with total respect. @Bri2020we had a blast, this is the first vacation that truly enjoyed and finally being me not the fake guy.

You two you like you are having a great time @Billie75B

 

Yesterday I picked up this formal dress from someone in the neighborhood. I say "someone" because I don't actually know her. However, there is a project called "buy nothing" that is set up as hyper local on facebook.  The deal is someone organizes a group for the small area you live in and instead of blinding donating or throwing things away, you post it in the group and see if a neighbor needs it.  You see everything from a pack of sodas that someone bought but didn't realize it's the kind no one in the house will drink all the way to major furniture.  Anyways, sometimes a gem like this comes along. I think this will be a xmas party dress this year.

Wow that really is a nice find! Looks great!

 

Today I went for the first time to get my makeup done. When I came home a parcel waited so I did jump in. Need to practice tucking but I'm really happy with the style 😊

Yeah, this happens.  I suppose it's one reason (or the reason) I try to go a size larger than I'm supposed to need.  Sleeves can be too tight as well.

Some websites have sizing charts that you can use to get an idea what you can get away with.

But for me, shoes are just impossible to find.

Too true. @Ivymakes some excellent points. FOr me, it's worse with blazers and jackets--I have to go up a couple of sizes, and shoes are nearly impossible to find in my size. (I wear a size 14 in women's shoes.) 

Torrid is a good source for dresses, especially for us bigger girls, as are SHEIN and ROSWE if you shop online.

Finding a dress that fits perfect is next to impossible. Loved the black one Maddee.

 

The past two days I have been living in a bathing suit since I got a new paddleboard. We have gorgeous weather in the forecast all the way to my surgery date so I plan on avoiding covid by staying on the water.  

This is a new bikini top with an old skirt suit bottom. first pic was from last evening, the second is me just sunbathing on the board in the middle of the lake this morning.

Tomorrow will be a different lake for a sunrise paddle. Plan on getting out in the twilight just before dawn and doing a morning sunrise salutation

Since I graduated from medical to regular bras I though I wear one of my signature outfits for the day with my favorite black knee high boots.

Not what I'd wear to the Food Lion, but I can dig it.

Liz, congrats on "graduating" to a normal bra. The boobs look great.

Cool weather today, so tried a new (for me) look. Glad to be wearing leggings again. Never expected to have such an affinity for them.

You appear to have successfully dressed up. Not your usual, but you look great!

Sorry no pic, but I wore my plaid pink wool long skirt with a black shirt and hat. I was in booties too. I believe this is the first time I wore it out. I probably bought it last fall.  My partner and I both like the way it looks.

My fashion benefactor dropped off a load of jumpers and dresses that the rich lady she house sits for was giving away. Almost all still had tags on them and none less that $100. I would totally judge her rampant materialism more if I didn't benefits so much from her wanton consumerism. lol. I didn't have the energy to try them all on but here is a few. You do not want to see what I am actually wearing most of the day with all of the post op swelling I am having. lol

      I got off cigarettes after nine years, and it was another year before I stopped dreaming that I had gone back to smoking. Arguably the least dangerous addictive substance in terms of impact on lifestyle, nicotine is nonetheless a formidable opponent when you're trying to quit.

      Hi @Jamey, nice to meet you. I wonder how other people respond to you on those days when you dress in jeans and a t-shirt? Do they treat you as male? And if so, do you correct them? I know for myself that jeans and a t-shirt can cause people to think of me as male, and while this hurts, it also gives me a day of rest from time to time during which I don’t feel so watched. In my case, I am out to every significant person in my life including workmates, so I don’t feel inauthentic so much as slightly eroded somehow in my sense of myself. But when I was still working with clients who did not know I was trans, and wearing jeans and t-shirt while I did so, that felt inauthentic.    I guess what I’m saying is, yes, authenticity is about how we feel on the inside, but it’s also about how we communicate that feeling to others. Maybe, in jeans and t-shirt, you feel you’re hiding in plain sight?

      I'm not sure if this qualifies as a thought for the day, but I wish it could be advertised to the wider community (I avoid using female restrooms/showers/... because of the wrong that exists between my legs). The trans woman in the public restroom is not saying, "I’m here to invade your space!" - she’s saying, "please take me in, I have no other place to go." We’re not conquerors or invaders, we’re refugees.

      I never understood (tobacco) addiction, until I overheard a conversation my Dad had with a smoking friend of his.   Dad had gone cold turkey on cigarettes after a close friend died of lung cancer at 40yo.  About 25 years later, he told his friend that he craved a cigarette every time someone lit up near him - so scary.  Kudos to every person who managed to kick an addiction.

      I was going to throw away my two pair of barely used "breasts".  I'm not aware of an LGBTQI center where I live but will take them with me on my ~1350km drive to Brisbane (nearest capital city) soon - should be something there.

      I think this is true for all mental aspects of HRT.  I've always been emotional so neither my wife or I expected much of a change on this front but there was - the emotions are stronger on both ends of the spectrum and I can swing fairly quickly.  The way I feel and sense interactions with other people has also changed.  I enjoy and desire conversations with women and I tend to get disinterested during conversations with men. On a slightly negative front, I have started experiencing a "loss of power" - I have been a team leader for many years and have recently started noticing that people (men) outside my team sort of ignore me and start decision making conversations with male team members who work under me.  My being less assertive since HRT may be one of the reasons for my perceived loss  of power.

      I'm sure that others have probably mentioned these before, but in my pre-HRT research I never saw taste/diet change or body odour change listed, so these both came as a pleasant surprise for me. The impossible to miss diet/taste change for me has been that I'm eating salads on a plate, with dressing, for the first time in my life.  It's not just that I'm eating them, I'm really enjoying them - having meals with plated salad at least 4 times a week now.

      It was many years before the shame of my addiction lessened.  I had heard the statement : "i'm grateful to be an alcoholic" and thought the speaker nuts!  Today i can echo those words as i accept my alcoholism and gender as well.   I have found that i when i share my journey it shows another there is a path.  It is always up to them wether they want to take it.   It took me time to fully understand " To thine own self be true" .  Yet another reason to be grateful.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I've been inspired to count clean and sober days.  I got a 24 hour coin and triangle necklace.  I've been listening to Elton John lately.  I started counting days from my 30 year Navy anniversary.  I like the idea of celebrating 50 years since joining the Navy and 20 years fully clean and sober on the same day.  It's good to have goals, right?   Whether I'm truly an addict is an issue I struggle with.  My lifelong best friend definitely is an addict.  I come from a long line of alcoholic gamblers on my father's side.  Thankfully, my father started recovery through AA before I was born and then gave me a good education in it while I was doing drugs in high school.  That definitely slowed down my alcohol and drug use.   My friend has struggled with AA for decades and he is still in active addiction.  I think it is critical to have a good home environment to get clean and sober.  I don't think the people he is living with are using much, but it certainly is not a functional household.  I've been very protective of my home environment.  I guess I'm writing you about all this because I might feel like a bit of an AA imposter being around him.  I do credit AA with the successes I've had over addiction and I'm starting to show a little pride in that.   OK, I've got a real question in this post...  Do you think there is value in hiding my AA pride from my friend?  I certainly don't want to cram it down his throat.  But after actively coming out as transgender, I have a clearer picture of what it is like to hide.  Hide/pride.  There is both a positive and negative side to pride.   When I got my 24 hour coin, I looked at it and said "spiritual progress, not spiritual perfection."  I love the To Thine Own Self Be True and the serenity prayer on them.  It really is a good token.   On a side note, my father stayed clean and sober for the rest of his life, but he continued his gambling addiction.  It was a real turn off for me, so I've stayed away from gambling.  In a few years here, I'll be in the position of having money to invest and I'm realizing that the gambling aspect of investing is a total turn off for me.  I think I'd rather work another year or two to cover the interest I might have gained by investing.   -Lydia

      Baseline audits are a normal thing for charities and the ones I was involved with as an auditor usually came up with nothing worse than that a former signatory for bank checks had not been removed from the account after the signatory had died in office or that bank receipts were not being turned into bookkeeper although the funds were showing on the bank statement, thus the statement showing too much money (the minutes of the organization were also quiet on the transactions because of that too.)  Nothing evil or felonious just carelessness corrected by a thorough review and admonishment.       A case where some POTENTIAL for harm exists, and a demand for ZERO potential for it by depriving ALL beneficiaries.  😵 😵  Even on these forums we know that some forms of binding carry the possibility of harm and we have done our best to recommend against those actions.  This is a matter between the Trans Man and their supportive medical team and NOT some busybody in the neighborhood who read The Daily Mail's scare piece on it.

      Hi y’all   Some time back my wife and I were in a fabric store together.  She is making a baby quilt for a friend of ours and was looking for backing fabric.  Any way I asked if she would help me pick a fabric and pattern and teach me to sew.  I thought it fell of death ears.  Then last night she shows me a pattern, what do you think of these?  Then we talked about the cost of making versing buying ready made.  The only savings would be a nicer fabric and multiple pairs off the same pattern.  Today she found where she could get the pattern.  Sounds like she is really making an effort for me.   😀willow

      The problem for some healthcare providers is that there have not been many studies clearly demonstrating superiority, however, it can be very useful. I have been on progesterone in addition to injections starting 1 month after I started estrogen. The key is the micronized progesterone. I had put out a few references regarding progesterone. The reality is that cisgender women have both during their developmental years and through middle adulthood. It makes sense to just mimic nature.  I will try to dig up those research articles. I found the same elevation in estrogen levels and reduced testosterone with progesterone. Progesterone suppresses gonadal androgen production.
