Today I got up at 6:30am, took the dog for a long, long walk (trying to get in shape). Had a banana and yogurt for breakfast and of course a coffee. Best things about the mornings for me now are shaving my legs and moisturizing! Looking for an nice tinting lotion for my legs - any suggestions!

@Samantha C  That's great.  It's never a bad idea to take care of our bodies!   Moisturizing our skin is a wonderful anti-aging technique too!   I don't have any specific suggestion for tinted lotion other than to wear shorts and let the Sun do its thing.   I am sure you can find something with a little color at your favorite drug store.  Don't go too dark as it will look odd.  

 

Cheers, Jani

It is paradise there Ellora :)

 

We are having a lovely day up this way in the shadows of Big Tahoma, gonna be in the upper 70's and sunny. Rain returns tomorrow however, and there was a little nip in the air earlier this morning. Just back from my 5 miles out,  was honked at by a passing biker :P. Sipping sparkling water at the moment. 

 

Enjoy

I guess if it had eggs in it that could work. Somehow that reminds me too much of yat gat mein (yakame) the breakfast of champions for people with hangovers. Personally I don’t like the smell of the stuff but those that eat yakame swear by it. I’ll stick to my moo goo gaipan, foo yuong and Kung pao... lol.... At lunch or dinner. Maybe chow mein sometimes. Just can’t reconcile breakfast with Chinese food. Unless there’s plenty of eggs in it. Maybe fried rice? It’s at least got eggs and goes in a pan.

That is a sweet gift.  It is lovely when someone thinks of you that way.  I had a dear friend who was visiting the John Deere headquarters and he brought me an awesome Deere hat with green and yellow embroidered flames.

That was nice of Carly.  I always appreciate it when someone thinks of me outside of face to face interaction.

Good morning everyone. Woke up yesterday morning and confidently announced to myself, "I'm a trans woman". Made feel feel incredibly content and happy. Went about my day and left a voice mail for a endocrinologist, "I'm a trans woman'. And it felt so good to say it aloud and to someone else, even if it was an answering machine. Lost a bit of this bravado when back with my family last night, butbtjis morning, I'm feeling good again. This site really has and continues to help me. Sorry rambling on. On a side note, I assume most of us here dont change and shower at the gym? Im reluctant to go to the mens locker room with a shaved body. Any thoughts?

Debra,

 Did they catch the thief?  Amazing that they tried to sell them in a legitimate market.

 

Samantha,

 Admitting to ourselves who we are and then accepting that is a long term process.  I wouldn't worry too much about being hairless.  Many men are.   If it becomes too difficult then showering at home may be the only alternative.

 

I'm almost done cutting the firewood for the house.  I've got 3 cords cut, split and covered on pallets ready to move near the front door.  We unfortunately have hundreds of dead ash trees on the farm.  The emerald ash borer is killing them all.  I feel like crying as i take them down but at least they make great firewood.  I've  also set some pieces aside for hafting axes and hammers.  In time wooden baseball bats will disappear. Another ecological disaster.

 

Hugs,

 

Charlize

Wow Charlize, that's something. 3 cords should be a good supply for winter. We only go through about a cord per winter here, depends. 

 

Have a great day

Hi,

 

Well, I am back from my trip to Portland,  We had a great time with our son and his wife.  Got to see how Mt. St. Helen has changed.  I last saw it in the 80s just a few years after it blew.  We managed to avoid the ANTIFA and the Proud Boys.  

 

I was having paperwork issues with my latest sailboat purchase, but I got that all resolved today.  I'm looking forward to doing some organizing and cleaning now that I know for certain I'll be able to sail it when I am done.  

 

Could be a rainy windy weekend with the storm coming up the east coast from Florida.  I hope it doesn't come ashore.  

 

Hope everyone is safe and not in the way of the latest California wild fires.

 

Willow

It's  sad about the Ash trees here as well. I have one that has self seeded beside my greenhouse. Totally the wrong place and I don't  have room for one either but I am loathe to remove it. I cut it back, but am happy to see it grow back. I will keep it as long as possible. I am not sure if it can be transplanted anywhere.

      Michelle, being open and available to others is the key to being able to lose our own natural propensity for self consciousness that is sometimes all consuming and becomes the ruination of potentially good experiences out in public and even with friendships. It also serves to drive away the dark clouds of depression that we sometimes fall into when we become overly self absorbed with our own negative self image. Most people don't see us as we do and aren't nearly as critical as we tend to be of our own selves.

      Well you might have. Women mechanics and women who ride are HAWT. So at least it would have been in a good way.   Hugs!

      Huzzah for helping people! I've had a couple of people stop me and tell me how brave I am, but I don't think I've ever inspired anyone to get help. Well done!   Hugs!

      @Krisvm You look great! I'll bet you feel pretty good too. There's just something about being right... also I'm jealous as heck of your waistline. Work it girl!   Hugs!

      I’ve known other transgender people throughout my life who only question why they have to go through the struggle of becoming someone that people see and respect as the gender they feel like. Many of us have come to the realization early on but some later. Whether it’s personal trauma that starts this introspection or just not feeling correct in the gender we are assigned, it’s a very personal thing. I’ve also encountered very few people who have said they detransitioned willingly but usually they were ftm. This idea that trans trenderism is the only reason people are transitioning is from people who oversimplify everything. But the truth is that since we live in a complex world that complicates things for us, there’s no easy answer for anything in life. Even though I knew from a fairly early age that something wasn’t right I didn’t know what to call it. But once I did it was this realization that “this is possible” and a sense of relief that there was a way. That was around 16, but it took another 14 years of personal struggle and ignoring certain cues because of social pressure until I finally found that HRT was the only thing that chemically made me feel normal. Then when I went through a bunch of craziness for another 16 years that prevented me from continuing my HRT I was devastated, tired, broken, struggling and unsatisfied with my life. I just didn’t realize it again until everything came crashing down on me and I grieved for what seems like weeks. So now after taking the long way around back to the same thing I so easily accepted about myself earlier in life I decided to stop running from it, procrastinating, or trying to fit this false image others have of me. While it’s never too late to begin, it’s also futile to try explaining it away because it’s something that won’t go away. It lingers. It’s constantly in the back of my mind. And it’s not necessarily the need to present feminine and that’s it. It’s so much more. When I looked at my personal thoughts, attitudes about certain issues, my opinions, how I view love and other people, relationships, it really sunk in that my mind is female already.  So now it’s just a matter of aligning the rest of me. Is it more difficult than if I had not been so dense about it at 18? Sure. But it’s something that I’m deeply compelled to pursue. It’s very much a spiritual journey with physical aspects. My life is an object lesson. Not about learning too late, but what happens when I let others question my deep seated sense of myself and stop listening to the inner voice that knows better than they ever will. It’s not really for me to find out why it seems so prevalent today. What is important is being who I really am. Sometimes I look in the mirror and don’t recognize myself because I don’t see what I want: dysphoria. But some days I see the girl that has always been there. It’s those days that I feel encouraged and renew my determination. To put it in perspective, I don’t have any real life transgender friends around me for support. It’s been difficult to fit the groups and other social activities in for the past year. So nobody can say that what I feel is a result of mimicking others. On the other hand I do find comfort and social interaction with other trans women here and in the discord chat. I come here for the more thoughtful outlet and go on discord for the fun, silly chat where I can laugh and be just one of the girls. They definitely fill a void. Anyway I can be very wordy so I’ll stop writing for now. Just know that what you feel inside is more important than the costumes others try to put you into.
