As today is my two year anniversary on Hormones I though that this could be funny to post.
I think honestly seeing this reminds me of just how luck am(unfortunately not in the boob department though)

3-4 years ago,




And now this was taken yesterday :') was gonna throw the skirt out and thought I'd give it another go






You can really see from these pics my lack of bean growth. I will hope to have small implants done when I can gather up some money.
I have been very lucky with hips waist and my shoulders, I still remain a hard grafter and mechanic most days. Still muscle mass in my upper body has fallen of me.
I'm so happy with where I am today.
Lots of Love Rachel 💖

Thank you Josie, and OMG yes that is a torture, you can actually see in my pics here there is remnants still D: I have kinda given up caring lol, unless I'm going out. But there is those tubs of mechanical soap with the grit in them? Always does a good job.

Thank you Ashley, it's amazing how those decisions have changed my life so much, they seem small now almost, but they where massive decisions at the time.
And yeah honestly I bask in it most mornings when I see the mirror, it dumbfounded me most days, its amazing!!

Thank you all 💖

One thing that helps is putting hand lotion on your hands before you start work. It plugs up the pores with something that can be washed off when your done.

Years ago when I turned wrenches professionally for a few years I used a product that was essentially a firm lotion (not oily).  Either the name was Liquid Gloves or it was billed as such.  I use gloves now exclusively as I don't want grease or cuts.

Rachel you are stunning in that skirt!  I'm jealous.

hi everyone!! So today is my one year anniversary of starting HRT! I figure now's probably a good time to post here lol. I'm gunna start with pics from last July, these were taken just before I started HRT. I'm gunna have 5 sets of pics, each set will have me dressed as a woman and one of me in male mode



these next 2 are from September 2017, these are a couple weeks after my doctor increased my dose


another estrogen increase in December!


and one more estrogen increase in April


and these final two are from today. I've been on the same dose since April, I go back to the doctor again in a month and I don't think he's going to allow me to go any higher with the estradiol, I don't think my hormone levels are up where he wants them quite yet, so I'm going to ask about injections


I don't really have any male mode pics anymore since I came out in May, so that last one is me dressed up and then one of me after a job with very minimal makeup

Take care,

Hi Andy,

I love how you are able to fish and look so femininely elegant at the same time. I adore the pink tank top. You look awesome and so natural.
