Okay, I'm going to show my one year of progress pict.  It might be more like one year and a month.  The before pict is from a few years ago.  It took me a while to find one where I smiled, but it was appropriate since that was the day I bought my formal Chinese smoking jacket.  The one year on hrt picture is with the formal ladies Chinese dinner jacket I prefer now:)  Oh, I wish I was young like these kiddies, but I'm doing with what I have.  Be kind, but be honest.  Edit added a couple more.

you know how far the universe extends outward? i think i go inside just as deep.

10/11/18 - out to the whole world.  100% friends and family support.
11/6/17 - came out to sister, best day of my life
9/5/17 - formal diagnosis and stopping DIY in favor if prescribed HRT
6/18/17 - decided to stop fighting the trans beast, back on DIY.
Too many ups and downs, DIY, purges of self inbetween dates.
Age 10 - suppression and denial began
Age 8 - knew I was different

You and your brother look a lot alike, Bari Jo.  But you are definitely better-looking. ;)

Me in 7th grade, 1977



This is me in 2013, when I was 169 pounds - the heaviest I've ever been in my life. I was drinking a lot of beer and this is just about the time I quit drinking and started a low dose estrogen patch.




Here I am in 2015, about two years on a low estrogen dose



Here I am now - from about two weeks ago



These are all from a year to about a couple months ago.

I've not had any surgeries, so this is all from HRT, and losing about 20 pounds.

Wow, gg, that is amazing!  No way that grumpy-looking old guy in photo #2 is related to the the pretty woman in the last couple of pictures!

Christ. Everyone has had such dramatic transformations, while I just went full circle and ended up looking like an androgynous skate punk. Again.

Androgynous skate punk sounds punk totally sounds like a great look to me.  We all have our moments.  I'm nearly always misgendered, but when I get the ma'am or a great picture, I'll take it!

Thanks! It lends a special perspective, I suppose. It makes me laugh a bit when people mistake me for a teenage boy at my age, but I think that's a general tomboy/immortal issue.

I'm diggin' the short pink hair in either of your more recent pics. But the Chinese jacket is especially cool.  ;D

Right? Thank you again. I feel so much happier now, and everyone that knows me notices it. I feel very blessed.

That is a stunning transformation. Your hard work paid off in spades, darling!

God girl. You are so beautiful and feminine and it kills me you think you aren't. When your hair grows out a tiny bit more (a lot of cis women are misgendered with short hair, remember that!) you are never going to get misgendered. One day you are going to wake up and just suddenly realize you haven't heard a sir in weeks.
