my wife had to prove she was better in heels than me and broke out some 5" heels to race around the table. 

Yeah but you have longer legs which should be an advantage over short distances right!?

I'm ridiculously lucky for that support and love. She is an amazing woman.  My son was in town and he helped prep dinner and took that photo for us. Then things devolved as more drinks were had and my wife had to prove she was better in heels than me and broke out some 5" heels to race around the table.  I had just run up and down the stairs in mine (2") and my son instigated the whole thing with his comment that he thought I had learned heels faster than my wife. hahaha. It was quite a show.

That's lovely. I am lucky with my children - they are very supportive and my daughter provided a lot of fashion and makeup advice in the early days. I'm so happy that she now will come to me for advice on makeup and fashion in return (and to be fair my wife has always come to me for fashion advice even before I came out to her). But I spent a lot of time in my gaining qualifications in Art and later in Photography so I have a reasonable grasp of structure and colour. I'm just so happy to be able to apply it to myself now. This is a pic from Friday...

It is flawless.  I'm not sure how much makeup I will ever wear. I like a little but my weekly electrolysis makes applying makeup challenging. Couple days of beard growth followed by a couple days of healing leaves me one day a week to apply makeup.

@ElizabethStar... it is UNCANNY how much you look like my sister-in-law, but thinner. She even wears her hair like that. Every single time I see your pic my lizard-brain says, "Oh, Kathy lost some weight!"

 

I didn't dress up today either. I'm wearing the racer-back I wore to the gym, jeans and a flannel over-shirt because it's cold.

 

Hugs!

Had an emotional day. It was workout day and though I worked out later than usual, pumping iron always helps me steady my emotions. Worked out in a cami and boy gym shorts (which look super huge on me, I need new gym shorts!) today. I really need to get a squat cage or rack and bench though or I'm facing a deload and working my way back up again.

 

Elliptical not getting any use today, unfortunately. Running the kids off to their mom and maybe having a face-to-face with her about some pressing issues.

If I could not dress up the the way you don't dress up I'd be a hell of a lot more passing. 😊

Oh! In the vein of gym pictures, I wanted to share this. Please note how nice my broad back/shoulders makes my waist look. Rar!

I mean sure, it would be better without the muffin, but one day at a time, right?

 

Hugs!

This my outfit yesterday just lounging around the house it was way to cold to go out. I was happy I did get to actually do my hair 3 days in a row. I’m lucky to get one day because of working 6 days a week it does no good to put effort when all I do is put a hard hat on and get dirty. After my surgery next week I will have time to put effort in to looking decent. My plan is to turn all my paperwork into the courthouse for my name change while I’m off. I’m seriously thinking of getting highlights in my hair before I go back to work.

Wow, thank you Jackie. BTW I'm jealous of your waist.

 

@NiamhIf I could only do my makeup as good as you.

Time to buy new clothes, I don't see a downside.

 

 

@Emily michelleCongrats on the pending name change. Highlight would look so cute on you.

Shopping is always fun it’s my favorite thing to do now haha

After working out I had to clean up and change quickly. My kids and I stopped for A&W Beyond Meat Burgers and Fries on the way out. Still a mite hungry so am scarfing down some microwaved frozen veggies before I attend an online meeting with a political organization that I'm affiliated with. Wearing a tie-dye shirt and leggings as the latest pieces of clothing I have yet displayed.

 

 

Now if I could only find some nice shoes that fit my oversized feet....

I remember all the times I would walk through the women's department to get to the men's department and wish I could stop and touch the clothes, and omg try them on?!. Then I'd become very self conscious and desperately hope nobody saw my eyes wander. Eyes straight ahead and lock on the sign that said MEN! And then settle for a long sleeved flannel shirt and a pair of jeans. I was ashamed of my skinny arms and always wore long sleeves to cover them.

The breakthrough when we at last begin to shop for what we really want to wear, and try things on in-store, and find a gem after searching through messy racks of clearance items-- that's one of the most uplifting and affirming feelings ever! 🙂

Just an observation here.

 

I have been looking at the pics and reading the thread. I have noticed something.

 

Why is it some of you ladys never smile? 

 

It cant be all that bad can it? From your words you are in your favorite outfits and choose to show them to the world as your authentic selves. You really should be in a much more happy disposition i would have considered.

 

Plus a smile would make your pictures shine so much more.

 

Please feel free to shoot me down if im missing the point!

I love to smile and there is usually a hint of one in most of my pics at the moment. My only issue is that one of my front teeth broke off a few weeks ago and while I'm waiting for treatment I just don't like seeing a big gap. I'll be back to my beaming self as soon as I can. 

And internally I'm nearly always smiling while I'm being Niamh - I'm far better looking than the other me that occupies my body :)

Aside from a few missing teeth I don't like how I look when I smile.

Like your cute jeans @Bri2020

!

Score!!

Someone left around ten pairs women's shoes and boots up for grabs at my apt building. Most have some wear.

They're size ten, so some are a little tight on me.  Any lucky 10s out there, hit me back if interested to see more pics (altho u can probly find her own shoes in that size)

 

Sorry photo blurry.  My camera phone may have been drinking ;)

I'm overdue to have my teeth cleaned at the dentist due to covid situation so I've been a bit embarrassed to show my crooked smile. Which reminds me....

      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.

      Update: she replied again a few hours ago and here's what she said... I'm gonna try to do what she said and get into contact with her a little more to see if she knows anything else and can help me more...

      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)

      Admitting to myself that I had a feminine nature - the heart of a girl.  (I was pretty transphobic)   But right up there with it was taking off my wedding ring, and accepting that it was over.  That night I was suicidal.
