A Change in Scenery: The Body

Recommended Posts

CharlotteVictoria

There are many questions i have regarding the temple known as our body and what i should do to construct it how i want it. I'm currently trying to achieve my goal of what i believe to be my desired body, the one i feel like i should have had years ago. The one i feel like i rightfully deserve. Slim waist, thick thighs, and a large ass. Some may ridicule or even shun me for wanting this, however, i'm dead-set on having it, for that is the true me i want to achieve. Even if it means i will be called a sex doll with potential malice used. I welcome it, for it is my temple in which i am crafting, not theirs.

I'm currently doing what i can by myself, like workouts that are meant to shape my body into the hourglass figure i desire without the use of gym equipment (i won't have that at my disposal until the end of the month). Fire hydrants, Scissor kicks, Squats, slow thigh closes, hip thrusts, leg lifts and donkey kicks to name a few. I've been doing these since about March and i've noticed a small difference. Are there any other workouts i should be adding/subtracting? The inclusion of gym equipment centric routines are welcome ^_^!

On top of that, before workouts and just in general, i've been incorporating a lot of protein into what i eat to help with workout results. Due to financial issues at the moment, it's mainly just eggs and the occasional peanut butter sandwich. I intend to add chicken regularly when i'm able and other protein dense foods such as certain rice, quinoa, and oats to name a few. Should i add anything else to help with gains? 

Outside of diet and exercise, are there any supplements or creams i should be using daily? I've heard about creams that will enhance my ass and eating things like maca root that will do the same while also shrinking my waist. However, i've never been sure if any of those claims are true considering responses always vary, so i'm wondering if anyone has any definite solutions.


Moving away from diet and exercise and on to skin care, are there any reliable ways to make the skin silky smooth and soft? I'm pretty sure the answer isn't just lotion. Unless it is, then in which case.....well -crap-, that was easy :o.

By now, you've noticed i haven't mentioned breasts. That's because, due to modern medicine, that area is very dangerous to mess with. So i'm opting for breast form bras of varying sizes until it becomes safe. Being able to change what breast size i want for the day seems much more convenient, it's like a real life boob slider :D!

You may have also noticed that i haven't spoken about genitalia. Also for the same reason, danger. Honestly wish it was retractable, it can make wearing certain panties and other articles of clothing quite a pain in the ass >_>...

Anyway, if you have any suggestions, i'm always eager to hear and put them to use! Thank you for reading, and for possibly helping a girl out. Charlotte out <3!

Add weights to your squats, and add in lunges. Forward and backwards. Also adding weights to those will help. Or resistance bands. 

Be careful with peanut butter. It may be high in protein, but it’s also very high in fats. It’ll make you chunky before it makes you thick. I go by the rule of 2 tbsp of pb a day max. 

 

I didnt notice anything mentioned about hrt either. That will do a good job of shaping yourself as well but it is all limited due to your genes too. Like the old adage goes.... You get what you get and don’t get upset. Cause it’s better than what you had rite?! 😜

Weights? Like Dumbells and such :o? If so, what size (i have access to i think..they're 10lbs at the moment. Will those suffice?)?? I've done forward lunges before, but i tend to lose my balance and feel a strain in my feet, so i was never sure if i was doing them right, do you have any tips ;^_^? Don't want to get half way down and then go ALL the way down flat on my ass, you know xD? Resistance bands i do have. I have the "Spri" ones that are kinda like...wide and rectangular, do those work?

2 tbsp, got it! Thank you!!!!

Ah, i did forget that. I heard about and witnessed the risk of mental instability when it came to hrt...which scares me....a lot...it wouldn't be an over-exaggeration to say i'm petrified of the idea...anything that can be done in that department? Classic saying, that. Which you're very right about xD!

Off topic: Any idea how to edit posts? wanted to change something in my original one ;^_^...

Besides diet and exercise, you could also try shapewear.  Or to the more extreme, an hourglass shape could be achieved with corset training.

I feel you do not what to use HRT Meds, then do not use the maca root supplements and the other lady supplements. They can pose a great danger to your health for different reasons. Talk to your doctor or gender therapist to help you with your HRT Meds, of you truly want a more feminine body. 

Sqats squats and more squats. There are plenty of exercises for your hips, glutes, and waist. You don’t need heavy weights, just increase your repetitions. Do cardio first. You can buy breast pumps and nipple pumps to help you naturally. I used them prior to starting HRT, and they do help. Don’t over pump, you need to safely train and build the flesh. 

Amazon has some lace thongs that the best thongs if you still have a lot of furniture down there. That’s all I wear now. I love them! I will continue to wear them even after my Orchie. 

Best of luck and fun with your journey!

Hmmmm 10 pounds is a good starting weight. But more weight=more muscle in those glutes. A lot of my girls use 25 pound weights for their squats and 15s for their lunges. 2 dumbbells. So 50&30 pounds of extra resistance. 

When you’re doing any of these exercises remember that quality proper movements are more important than reps. 2 perfect deep squats are the same as 10 shallow poor form squats any day. Same for any exercise. 

When it comes to lunges most people do them wrong. You should be stepping out and sinking straight down into the move. Your front leg should go to a 90° angle and your rear knee should be directly below your a$$ about an inch off the floor. I think that would help the pain part, but it does take time to build the muscles to support yourself with good balance. And if you’re using weights they rest straight down at your thighs. Don’t use your arms except for holding them. Well unless you’re looking for an upper body workout as well. 

The hrt meds do cause some messy days for sure. The crying annoys me to no end. But eeh. It’s not bad. And the good from it outweighs the bad by like a million times. It’s a no brainer if you find yourself going that route. It just makes you feel like you. Can’t beat it really. 

 

And you can’t edit posts. You can try and tag a moderator to edit something for you, but that’s really all you can do. Most people just post any corrections in another post.

Oddly enough, i tried wearing a corset for a bit, it got super itchy. I intend to try it again once i figure out a way to not want to scratch myself so much xD!

Great danger, huh? Something tells me i don't think i'm gonna like the risks if that's the case Dx!! Though, would you mind telling me said risks, now i'm curious. I need to amass a ton of funds first before i can speak to a doctor or therapist, i lack health insurance you see >_>. I'm also frightened of trying to seek one out due to my location. Last i checked, my state isn't very fond of the LGBT community so... i'll let you know how that goes when i cross that bridge ;__;. Oh, i squat (love them too)! Though, if needed, i can increase the amount if that would be helpful. I do 80 in my routine (so 20, then rest, another 20, etc), just increased them to 80 about a week or so ago. The exercises i'm doing i'm absolutely in love with, and i feel like they've been helping! May i ask what you do for your routine and what cardio exercises are recommended? i don't exactly have a place to go jogging at the moment so...if there's more than just that, please tell me xD! I legitimately didn't think about breast and nipple pumps, you're a genius :D!!!!!! As for Lace Thongs, they're the most amazing thing on the planet! I have a few of them and they're just absolutely lovely!!! Though, i got mine from walmart. I intend to get a giant haul from amazon though! Thank you for your positive wishes! Believe it or not, i'm already having fun, as...full of questions as i am ;^__^! I wish you the same <3!!!

Hm...i think i'll start with those 20 and 15's!! I'll attempt to do lunges again with the instructions you've provided! I appreciate the help ^__^! Literally writing down the instructions somewhere now xD! As for the hrt meds, i definitely agree that the benefits are high, it's just the potential risk...I'm still thinking on using them. Big decision, you know? Well poo, so much for post editing. Guess i'd better make sure it's right the first time xD!!

      Thank you all for the support. I do know that it takes a strong person to be vulnerable.  But when a bond is ravaged I’ve always looked to those that have the courage to move on as the strong ones. Not the ones that stay.    I just can’t seem to truly forgive her for what’s happened. For the awful thing she’s done. And before transition I would have walked away. And I have. I stayed this time because I’m scared to face life With 2 kids 2 exes and no support at home.    I have seen that I still love her. But I love my ex too. Not exactly the same way. But at one time it was the same with her. I can’t help but think this is all for stupid reasons based on a fallacy that I can’t survive with my kids without her. And unless I can figure out how to forgive her for real like in my heart and soul idk what to do.    On the flip side this is the first time that my partner has ever done their part to fix the problem as well. And she’s done everything I’ve asked. And she’s done more. She’s an amazing person really and like I said I do love her. I just can’t figure out if my morals or my feelings are what I need to listen to. And I guess that’s a personal thing I need to figure out. I just wish it wasn’t so hard. And all encompassing.

      This is very important!  My wife had this situation recently for a routine test that needed to be evaluated by a non-affiliated doctor.  Ouch!  Jani

      There are no boundaries as long as you are safe.  Lots of women enjoy "masculine" activities and many men like "feminine" activities.  Don't fret over it.     BTW I am still active with my car hobby.   Jani

      Hello.  I wonder if this was a gender counselor?  It does appear as if they were asking tough questions to make you consider all the options.  You need to be honest with yourself about what in your life would change (physically and emotionally) if you had this surgery.   I do think her statement about being a freak was a little harsh and not necessarily correct.  If possible you might consider a new therapist.    Jani

      Hello Dave/Dina.  Welcome aboard.     I will just mention that you are close to Fenway Health and they are very caring.  I love my doctor there.     Please join in the conversation! Jani

      Hi I recently went to a therapist who was asking me questions my birth sex is female i identify as a woman but i have wanted top surgery she began talking about all the surgery and risks felt like she was trying to put me off wanted to know about my family asked me why I want top surgery as a woman I have always seen breasts as a nuisance a hindrance wearing bras and so on she came to the conclusion that it was not about my identity that was an issue one thing she said that really stuck into me she said  how would I feel in society as a breathless woman.she said society would class me as a freak I was shocked by her words and feel really crap about myself I am femme presenting and I feel like she did not believe me about wanting top surgery or did not see things from my perspective i suppose life as a breastless woman would be hard on a binary world  she asked to think about my relationship to my chest and I feel like I am being encouraged to think about them it just feels really jarring i guess this was a nh s therapist

      Can I just say?.. I think you're a strong woman for staying. I'd say that regardless of gender. You're strong for staying! And for admitting the vulnerability and the hurt. But wanting to maintain the relationship through it all anyway is strength. Wounds do heal.    ❤️ ~Toni
    • SugarMagnolia
      Kirsten, may I suggest a slight tweak to how you're thinking about this? Instead of thinking of yourself as a weak woman may I suggest simply thinking of yourself as a woman who's strong enough to allow herself to be vulnerable? When you are open to others, you are open to being hurt. That's not weakness. It's faith and love and trust. When that trust is violated it hurts...a lot. If you weren't a strong woman you wouldn't be able to let people in and you wouldn't be hurt like that. But you also wouldn't be able to truly love and be loved. Take heart and know that you're strong enough to get through this!

      Just another voice in the chorus.  Please go to the clinic you mentioned and get some professional help!  Even short term self administration can cause a lifetime of problems with few positive results.   Hugs,   Charlize

      So Rokkatru is an off-shoot of Asatru or Heathenism, which is Paganism specializing in Norse mythology. Rokkatru focuses on the worship of Rokkar -- IE Frost Giants. The most popular members of the pantheon is the shape shifting, genderfluid, and pansexual God of fire, mischief, and stories Loki and his family. Because Loki can take the form of both God or Goddess or even androgyny, he has become the patron saint of queens, so to speak.    I run a Rokkatru blog on Tumblr where I am out as FtM and have a little over 300 followers. Is anyone else interested in this?

      This.    You have to be comfortable with yourself and comfortable with living on your own before you can be comfortable in a committed relationship.    Pansexuality has been trending for a while in the LGBT community. At least, among us younger members. For those of you who haven't heard it, pansexuality is the attraction to all genders, including transgenders. So there are definitely people out there. They are just part of a younger generation.    Also there are people who see being trans as a fetish. Which is....Or can be problematic, IMO, because then you are basically being used as a play thing, I feel like. Unless you're into that, of course. 
    • Charlize
      Kristen i'm so sorry to read about your struggles accepting the actions of your wife.  An incident like that can certainly haunt one but hopefully in time it will heal both in the relationship and in your feeling of weakness.  I remember feeling so vulnerable during early transition.  With the coming of confidence in myself as a woman came a feeling of acceptance and strength. Just like the hairs on your chin time it can be dealt with.  It takes a great deal of strength to get past the fear we all face at first.  I doubt any of us are really weak.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Even on prescribed medication, I still developed a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) that necessitated that I go off hormones for nearly a year.  Luckily the blood clot did not go into any crucial organs, but I now have medicines I really don't want that I will take for the rest of my life.  We like to keep our members with us here alive and in good spirits.
