I got out for a couple of hours today. My wife gave me the sweatshirt on extended loan. Feeling great, I think pulled off a look, of some sorts.

I love your confidence, it makes you shine and it's inspiring.  Nothing like a comfy hoodie!

I'm impressed that you asked. My spouse and I are more, "Is that my top?"

 

I'm not really sure why we have separate dressers to be honest.

 

Hugs!

Everyone is looking fabulous lately! ❤️ Today I'm just wearing my "some of us evolve differently" transition t-shirt that I picked up from Etsy and some black leggings. The thing about working from home (still!) is that I have to find reasons to put myself together in a real outfit. And failing that, feeling good about myself is reason enough sometimes... or really, always!

 

In no universe would I ever fit into any of my partner's stuff. It's probably better that way anyway - after I came out, that was still one of her very first questions whether I'd worn any of her things.

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Haha, I can relate!  My wife had one of those "Did I just say that" moments when she asked me to pick up a bra like I wear for her when I went to Ross

Tragically, Susan has larger breasts than I do and a narrower chest, so we're not going to be swapping bras. Also, hers are boring. Bleah.

 

We're both an XL top though and a 16 pants so we're close enough that we can swap clothes. Honestly, I have a couple of tops that she bought for herself and didn't fit her right, so they became my tops. Yay!

 

Hugs!

Oh, she's a different size, hence needing me to buy her ones "like mine" but in her size  lol.  We have both been losing weight but she is staying ahead of me so I've been getting some hand me downs that don't fit her anymore.  We almost had a crisis when for about 2 weeks I caught up to her in dress sizes. She's very supportive but she doesn't want to be the same size as me. lol

Yeah, she wears these... shapeless tank-style things. I prefer underwire. The girls need all the help they can get.

I'm loving seeing (+hearing about) everyone in their outfits. I'm normally a dresses and skirts girl, but occasionally I get into skinny jeans like today.

Looking good @Niamh. I love the jacket, almost got one like that the other day, in dusty rose. Then I'm looking at you shoes thinking I should probably get a pair of heels but if I wear them with a skirt I'll also need some nylons or tights or something. More stuff to start thinking about.

It's kinda like doing a home project- one thing cascades into another. lol

Oh yes - it's a bit of addiction in itself. Mr Amazon really loves me! When there's a delivery at the door - my wife asks "What is it this time? A new dress, top, shoes, boots or jewelry? I used to have to hide all this and make sure it got delivered when she wouldn't be in or got sent to a pick up point. Now it's all in the open it is wonderful not to have to be so secretive :) .

Today it's a long Lou la roo skirt (and tights under) and a cowl neck top. Went for the knee high suede boots as well.

I'm sure we've been through this already but how's it been learning to walk in heels? Like 3 inch heels...anyone? I was searching for some new boots and stumbled across high heel hiking boots. Yes, I'm that kind of girl. I am in love and really want a pair but they're in the 3inch+ heel height range (that would also put me at 6 foot). I do have some concerns about wrecking my knees and twisting an ankle.  If I can find some with a block heel I might settle for lower but the bar is set pretty high right now.

My advice? Start with kitten heels, with block heels, or with wedges. The habits we form while walking are pretty instinctual and hard to break. Heels will adjust the center of gravity forward, an effect that's more noticeable the higher the heels are. You'll want to compensate for this by leaning back a little bit. Also, when wearing flat shoes, we don't usually walk on the ball of our foot (towards the toes). So, when taking a step in heels, you'll want to land "heel, then toes" (not the other way around). Practice at home, don't rush, take smaller steps, and look ahead not down. If you're me, pronation is a problem and so that presents an extra challenge because I don't have a well-defined arch. Also, top secret: change shoes when you arrive at the occasion you want to wear your heels, especially if you ever wear stilettos. Your feet will thank you. ❤️

 

@Bri2020 I love the bright warm colors on that maxi skirt!

 

Love,

~Audrey.

Check your ankle flexibility. Mine are pretty tight. I've been working on it, but you will REGRET wearing those if they put your ankles in a stress position for very long.

<sarcasm> Oh no. Not six feet. Whatever will you do. </sarcasm>

 

I've got a friend who keeps encouraging me to put on some heels. Tall women can be sexy. I'm already 5'11" and I don't feel like I should be drawing more attention to myself. That's probably my self-esteem issues talking though.

 

Either way, boot heels are about all I can manage right now. Maybe I'll go a little taller once I get my ankle flexors a little looser. Right now extending them much past an inch HURTS.

 

Hugs!

I started with wedges to get use to the shift in center of gravity. I can do a 3" no problem although it will be rough if I try and wear them all day. One thing is short strides. Men usually take longer strides and it's a hard habit to break.  (wear a pencil skirt, it will remind you) You will totally lose it if you take too long a step.  Also, you can't heel  "pivot" in heels without risking turning your ankle. You need to come up on the toes more to change direction.

I'm 5'11" but with or without heels I'm going to get noticed so I'm going to wear whatever I want and not worry about the stares ;)

I have to work today but I'm keeping it casual with some fun jeans by Denzien, a cami top and Tory cardigan. Plus my suede ankle booties with about a 2" heel.  I love the flower embroidery on the jeans.  No makeup today, tomorrow is electrolysis so I have too much facial hair for that. I did manage to deal with my mane of hair so at least I did that. lol

Nice feet! I love painted toenails but they are seldom practical with my lifestyle.

It's dress nice day for me at work. The dress is sleeveless and I don't like showing my tats on my shoulders so a cover is needed.  I like my turquoise dragonfly necklace with this because it accents the small amount of turquoise in the dress.  Big hair courtesy of wanting some sunshine and braving the 38 degree morning commute with the top down. haha

Cute dress Bri.
 

I really like this sweater although I would’ve liked it a little larger so it could hang off my shoulder. Maybe next time.

@Bri2021 The turquoise really pops with the necklace! I love dresses with bold prints, though I struggle to wear them well. Maybe someday!

 

@ElizabethStar Can we talk about that phone case? It's awesome! Also, the stars - nice.

 

Love,

~Audrey.

      I will go first. I will be Gina, a patient. Now as Gina I'm only allowed one ailment, but many doctors. I can be a doctor to other patients but not myself.  I can be other new patients, but always the ailment matches the character. I cannot talk to my other characters I created, whether I'm a doctor or patent. Patients can talk to other patents and their doctors, doctors can only talk to other doctors about their. patents. If you chose to talk to yourself, you can create a nurse. Remember, you can be as many people as you like, switch back and forth, and so on but to be a nurse, you can only be one nurse, same name.   Here goes,    WEEEEELLLL WEEEEEEEELLLL....screech......   I crawl in and fill out forms....name....Gina   sex....dah    age....old..... Problem.... Gina, I hurt my leg, will somebody please do their job and fix it...   ( nurse walks by, doctor walks by)   ............this is where the game begins...

      An update! I have expanded my Coming Out list again am halfway through my list with a goal of finishing it before Easter. My wife has taken me on a couple of shopping trips and starting to build my wardrobe. I am doing my nails, although a subtle shade of polish for now. I currently only dress feminine when at home and switch to "boy mode" when I go out, I went out this Sunday in one of my feminine outfits (including bra and breast forms) to lunch with a friend who I have already come out to. Afterwards my wife and I went clothes shopping. Tomorrow is my first visit to the Transgender Clinic and am so excited!   Virtual hugs to All! Billie

      I too am here to meet friends. I am lonely too. I have no trans friends at all. It is so tough with no one to  really talk to. Yes I have fellow pilots, but can’t discuss anything really about me.

      I have come across an article (which of course I cannot find now lol) that explained how both operations can be done BUT order matters. It was something about moving (or spreading, or something) vocal cords in order to get to the area to be reduced. And so that has to be done first, or shortened cords might get in a way and tear or get damaged. Of course, it could have been that specific operation or surgeon, and might not apply to other methods, but there are definitely more options than just a binary choice 🙂

      I should point out that I don't have a partner at this time of my life, but… In my experience, there are different kinds of them.  The kind I associate with the guy thing tends to be pretty directed toward one area.  And then there is a more full-body sort, that is more internal, but pretty intense.  At least in my experience this doesn't necessarily require the involvement of "down there" but is quite satisfying.  But, I suspect this is a very individual sort of thing. I find that these days I am less visually stimulated than I used to be.  I'm kind of developing a taste for "steamy romance" paperbacks.  Whoo…   But I'm kinda weird I think.  I suspect I'm more pansexual. At times I think there is a type of spiritual thing involved.   But then, like I said, I'm kinda weird.

      Oh that's great to hear because they did 2 rounds of blood tests for me and both times they mentioned my kidneys and liver were perfect! Thank you so much!
    • Jackie C.
      It's going to come down to your blood work. If your liver and kidneys are healthy, you won't have any problem. They just want your to be as healthy as possible before they put additional strain on your body.   You're young enough that you shouldn't have any issues, but being as healthy as possible is a good stance to take while undergoing transition. It puts a lot of stress on the body and it's on you to make sure your body is conditioned to handle it.   Of course you're on T so you'll be lifting more than my little girl arms can handle (I dead-lifted 270 today, it's more than my workout partner can lift for once and I'm excited) before you know it. 😉   Hugs!

      Thanks Holly. Your name is pretty, I didn't think stripper when I saw it.

      I'm about 275 and about 5'8 but my doctor said because my legs are muscular and it isn't loose fat she doesn't consider me like morbidly obese. I plan on working out a lot more when I've started T but I was just anxious that they wouldn't even let me do hrt if I'm too heavy. Thanks for the motivation!
    • HollyNoel
      Clair, first, I love your name. So very classy. Mine, Holly, now that I think about it brings to mind a stripper.. lol   I looked at the flag under your name and thought the blue flag was California. It's North Dakota, I was about to say that there must be many local groups in California. Anyway, I'm so sorry there isn't any place where you are that you can meet up with other trans brothers or sisters. I'm glad you have this place where you can talk to others that are going through the things you are. And if you need, I will always be available to talk to. I want you to know you have friends here.

      Go for it!  Putting yourself out there is scary, I know, but it is one of the best ways to gain acceptance.   It's not quite the same situation, but, back when I had been out for less than a month, I realized that I had already committed to doing a public presentation for the local astronomy association.  After some nervous emails to the coordinator, I went ahead and did it.  I am so glad I did.  Everyone in the group now knows that I am trans, but they don't care, because they also know that I know my stuff.  Getting rid of the elephant in the room is liberating and empowering.   It sounds like your company is on board with the resource group.  By chairing it, you have the opportunity to get in on the ground floor and make sure that it is inclusive and pro-active.  You have got this!
