Moments of lucidity from a cyclist (Why I ride):

In the serenity of early dawn

The miles pass unencumbered

The painting begins

The bike is my medium

The asphalt my canvas

With each mile

Another stroke is added

Another wash applied

I lose myself in the intricacy of the effort;

The simplicity of space

The painting unfolds

And within it, I exist.

-Jennifer T, June 2002

Peace

One of the real blessings in my life is that I love being out doors. Cycling and hiking are two of my favorite things to do. And the beauty of it is, for me, that neither the wilderness nor my bikes give one hoot whether I'm a man or a woman. When I ride, I simply ride. When I hike, I hike. And those are times when my heart is truly at peace.

Yes Jennifer I can relate to this one pretty well.

I live in the Lake Tahoe region of Nevada with some of the most beautiful wilderness on earth.

I did quite a bit of mountain biking in the past until the bad habits caught up with me,I am seriously thinking about getting another Mountain Bike and getting the rest of the way to my weight and health goal.

I am down to 195 from 250 and think a bike would certainly help take off the rest down to 170 where I belong. Plus like you I love going to the mountains and just being me, I cant tell you how many times I have been hiking in the spring and summer, picking flowers and making necklaces and bracelets out of them to wear for the day. :wub:

Its the one place I can go and not feel bad or out of place for being me,nature doesnt care who I am.

Transition can simply mean regaining something about yourself you liked and lost.

I want to start painting beautiful pictures of my own again.

Brenda, I have spent time Mtn Biking in CA and NV. And yes, I've ridden at Tahoe. Did the flume trail with a group of friends. And it was an amazing ride!!! It was Autumn, the Aspens were blazing yellow against the evergreen backdrop. The lake was azure and the day could not have been more perfect for a ride!!! And when we finished and were driving out, it snowed like crazy!!!

Sometimes, I miss those days. :-)

      Like Jani said, this is pretty typical. Not just in coming out, but life in general. I'm sure many would agree, but I'm just speaking from my own experience.    It's like somedays I feel like a euphoric woman, makeup hair and ensemble is on point, I'm getting lots of compliments and gendered properly, and other days I'm getting mostly misgendered, beard stubble and body hair growing back in giving me dysphoria, and my anxiety telling me why I'm doing this at all.    I had the same experience before coming out publicly. I was going to wait until I hopefully presented more naturally, but I wanted to start dressing out and couldn't contain myself anymore. I'm so glad I did. I'm so much happier to be me now.

      I definitely look forward to this but waiting a bit for my outward appearance to be more feminine.  So the picture looks like the name more.  I also think I’m going to wait for a legal name change to have that put on my drivers license too.

      I am male who loves high heels since young, seeing ladies putting their feet on it, beautify the shape of the feet and leg, it is extremely seducing. One day a thought come into my mind: how about me testing to put it on? Then here it starts my journey with high heels, couldn't resist wearing them every single day, when I am alone, of course. I wear them bathing, I wear them sleeping, and occasionally, I wear them doing housework. And now, I even breakthrough by wearing them out, at night, alone, on the road, or even offroad ( with stones and rocks, it is really hard to walk, I even broke some heels on it).  Does this called crossdresser? And is there anyone like me? Or I am the only one like this?

      I have a consultation with her on Monday. Do you know anyone that has good results from her. The CA office will only take my insurance policy not Texas office.

      This is why I wear running shoes. I know I'd have a hell of a time running in heels. If I gotta run I'm gonna run. Safety over style any day.

      I've found that for my 32" waist and my 130-140ish weight not being well endowed thank good a 6 fits me well, and a 7 work well. 5 would be too small, and 8 would be falling off of me inside my pants or leggings.  One of the things I discovered about panties is that they tend to fall down even in pants or leggings. I had never understood why girls were pulling up their pants. That was until I started transitioning almost 5 years and wearing panties. I was like Holy Cow! Being very smooth for a male born female, it was very eye opening. There was a day when I worked a 1/2 of a shift at work with my panties almost in my pant legs. Now I understand, we're not pulling up our pants, but pulling up our underwear in them.  I also wear a nylon pull over bra, which goes by S, M, L, and XL sizes instead of numbers which is helpful.

      That is great!  Sounds like you had a pretty good experience too.

      Fantastic! Congratulations! Promotions all around!   You've also reminded me that I need to get off my butt and attend to that myself once I get my car back from the shop.   Hugs!
