Thanks Megan! Actually right after I posted this one I realized it kind of looks like I've got my arm around my former self.. hahaha

Appreciate the nice words :)


You were the one who inspired me to transition jenny. Thank you so much. :eusa_clap:

Wow. Thank you so much for telling me that! Ugh, I don't even really know what to say. So so happy that I could somehow help you make that huge decision. I hope things have been going well for you! Thanks again :D

Lol.. Well the last time I still wasn't a mod yet, and I think it was VM who split the thread with my pic at the beginning- so it was kind of out of my power. I was wondering if anyone would notice that though :P ;) Hopefully it doesn't come across like I am trying to show off!

I am also hoping that some of the girls who posted late in the last thread will repost their pics again here, too, for further commenting :)

Jennygirl you are the friggin coolest.  I was late in the thread but I really don't know what other comments could be said about my big ole head. lol


Okay.  I have two pictures both with me in it and both with my wife.  I blurred her face because I don't know if she is cool with this or not.  She transitioned with me from female to male just without hormones or anything like that.  Its a long story.  Shes not blurred on my facebook page though. I don't think she minds people seeing her there.  Oh and add me if you want!  It's cool. :D

You can tell that was you in the before picture, but it is stunning what changes you made and how you look after! You really look smoking hot!!! I don't know how you did it but I am very impressed :)

Post by: Jennygirl on July 03, 2014, 06:58:04 am
Thanks GC, that is very nice of you to say :D The past year and a half has been one hell of a ride. Some months I've felt only slight improvement, some months I feel huge improvements.

Something about the last month has been a huge improvement to the way I feel as a woman, though. Not sure what it is- it may be that I've had some relationship opportunities pop up with some of the most surprising people (to me)... or maybe it's me getting serious about SRS and excitement to be done with physical transition. Either way, I've never felt better in my life.

Thanks again and welcome, hopefully you will have some nice revelations to share about yourself someday :)

Wow all that was a year and a half?! You seem to have made improvements of the otherworldly kind! I would have had trouble believing you weren't always so gorgeous if I didn't see the before picture!

That is awesome and I am sure that is one of the larger milestones for you :) I am very happy for you. By the way, what is SRS?

I hope so as well :)

Not really an "after" picture since I'm still in the early, early phases of transition. But I feel pretty good about how much healthier I seem and I think there's potential there to pass some day. Still ways to go, but I'm on my way.

Jenny, I have been meaning to say this for a long time, but it wasn't until I saw you say something similar, that I thought I could without sounding mean. Your physical changes have not been that drastic.

Yeah. I said it.

;)

You just wear being female very, very well.

You are the first to admit it takes work to be a woman. I agree and add, good genes help. You put in the work, and have good genes. Now you can hang out with old friends and they do not know who you are.

So why are people so amazed by your pictures here (myself included)?

Well, the pics are good, for starters. You are tasteful in wardrobe and makeup. AND you glow with joy. The skin has changed, but how you feel in said skin has changed even more.

You are the epitome of what I keep trying to tell people. HRT does very little visually, it is the effort we put in, the enjoyment we feel, and the culmination of all these teeny tiny results that paint the real picture.

It is who you are, how you present, and the bravery to not give a flying ****, that really makes the difference.

People are inspired because of your looks? Good luck people. Jenny has great genes. She should have been FAAB.

People should be inspired by your heart and soul. Because THAT is what really makes the difference.

I have to disagree here. Your mental state is an abstract thing. Passability is concrete. It doesn't really matter how you feel on the inside, you still won't be passable unless you look female. Even with mannerisms and a projection of confidence, it won't do anything unless you look female. That said, I disagree that HRT does very little visually. The changes that HRT causes are subtle, but that doesn't mean they're little. It's the subtleties that people pick up on that are used to determine someone's gender. So having those subtleties changed has a profound effect on your overall appearance.

No I feel you, girly. Eating is the most wonderful thing in the world. I still splurge and eat whatever I want right now, I just make sure to do 40 min cardio sessions in the gym almost daily.

It's crazy, isn't it? That Jenny looks like a twin of her old self yet looks undeniably and 100% female. Whenever I show cis friends before/after pics on these forums, they are ALWAYS most amazed by Jenny, despite other girls going through more drastic physical changes to look female.

Isn't that the case with all MTF transgender people, that they should have been female assigned at birth, by the very definition of <transgender>?

You are such a cutey!! And definitely one of my favorites here....well I would say favorite but then Shan my get upset LOL

You just need to realize for yourself that you are beautiful and so naturally looking, I know easier said than done!

Its so nice to hear that your mother is so supportive of you. I would like to think I would be the same with my children. It sounds like you have a close relationship with her....could be somewhat co-dependent like I am with my children. Maybe you and I need to break away a bit....just my observation of maybe myself more than you LOL

Post by: Megan Joanne on July 06, 2014, 08:52:09 pm
I saw. Strange, we were posting about the same time regarding each other.  :o

You know, its been a week and a half since being back on the hormones, and while not the same as I had before, the pills are working, today I have felt better than I have in a very long time, actually feel all the good stuff, pretty, feminine, just downright wonderful about me. That's what I needed. For a bit there I wasn't sure if I was going to make it, so thankful of those that thought better of me than I did of myself when I was going through that rough patch, otherwise I wouldn't be feeling good nor have any pretty dresses to show off.

I love my mom more than anyone, we've been through everything together, pulling through the worst of it. Eh, we have our disagreements and hard times, but we get over it and continue to love each other like family should. She's been there for me and I for her. I do agree with you that I should break away, should've long ago, but that time will come in time, maybe when I find another, someone to love me on a more intimate scale, then my mom could probably do the same.

You look like you and your children may have a good relationship too. Am I wrong, is it just pictures doing what they do best? I'm thinking you do though.  ;)

Yes you are correct. I am very close with them and do have their love and respect for the most part, the only problem now is that they are also transitioning!! That is.....they are transitioning into disrespectful teens!!

I do wonder at times if how they disrespect me is because of my transition...I do realize they miss their (visual) father :(

Just Shelly, you are an inspiration! I've got two little boys 2 & 3 and a half... One of my greatest fears is that I don't affect their happiness. I suppose I have to start with myself. ;)

Thought it would be fun to add a few pics to the new thread.

I found one pic that is about 13 years ago, it was during a fat stage in my life. I can honestly say this was the fattest I ever was but still only pushed 165....but it looks like a hell of a lot more. My children never could believe that I was that big at one time, even when comparing to when I was still portraying a man.

The second pic was fairly typical of what I looked like most of my life, it was just the start of my transition. Believe it or not there are some tiny buds behind that red shirt....I was even insecure about it at the time...LOL

The 3rd 4th and 5th are how I appear today!!

Just WOW!  Tremendously inspiring Shelly!

Shelly, thanks for sharing those photos.  Some sets of before-and-afters really resonate with me; yours especially so.  Slightly later in life, such wonderful results (you're very pretty!), and most importantly you're still with your kids in the after photos.  Absolutely inspiring, and precisely what I needed to see right now for encouragement; proof that transitions really can work out well.

Thanks again - sincerely. :)

You're no exception!  Another transition that simultaneously makes me hopelessly jealous and extraordinarily hopeful.  If you don't mind me asking, what sort of time scale are we looking at in the photos?

Nice results.

That's so lovely, thanks! :)  Most of the girls on here make me hopelessly jealous... I guess it's easier to see the positives in other than ourselves sometimes. Well it certainly is for me!

I don't mind at all! So I think the before pic was maybe 4 Christmas's ago... you can tell it's Christmas because I looked so happy ;) I came out 3 years ago, started HRT roughly 2 years ago and had FFS April 2013, GRS April 2014 and VFS last week. It's been pretty full on! I've got some further FFS planned for next Feb. The other 3 pics are all this year, two of them were like a month ago.

Post by: Jennygirl on July 08, 2014, 07:16:28 pm
Jenny, I have been meaning to say this for a long time, but it wasn't until I saw you say something similar, that I thought I could without sounding mean. Your physical changes have not been that drastic.

Yeah. I said it.

;)

You just wear being female very, very well.

You are the first to admit it takes work to be a woman. I agree and add, good genes help. You put in the work, and have good genes. Now you can hang out with old friends and they do not know who you are.

So why are people so amazed by your pictures here (myself included)?

Well, the pics are good, for starters. You are tasteful in wardrobe and makeup. AND you glow with joy. The skin has changed, but how you feel in said skin has changed even more.

You are the epitome of what I keep trying to tell people. HRT does very little visually, it is the effort we put in, the enjoyment we feel, and the culmination of all these teeny tiny results that paint the real picture.

It is who you are, how you present, and the bravery to not give a flying ****, that really makes the difference.

People are inspired because of your looks? Good luck people. Jenny has great genes. She should have been FAAB.

People should be inspired by your heart and soul. Because THAT is what really makes the difference.

I think this is one of the nicest compliments I've ever received. So real to how I feel and where I've come from. Thank you Tori :D :D

I have to disagree here. Your mental state is an abstract thing. Passability is concrete. It doesn't really matter how you feel on the inside, you still won't be passable unless you look female. Even with mannerisms and a projection of confidence, it won't do anything unless you look female. That said, I disagree that HRT does very little visually. The changes that HRT causes are subtle, but that doesn't mean they're little. It's the subtleties that people pick up on that are used to determine someone's gender. So having those subtleties changed has a profound effect on your overall appearance.

I see what you mean riversong. I think you touch on good points as well. Specifically though I would like to add that I think all the little aspects add up and enhance each other.. as if the sum is not just a sum but a recursive sum as well.. And I think the missing ingredient is confidence. Confidence allows you to shine, glow, resonate, and feel whole. When you are confident, everything gets taken up a notch and the sum has to be recalculated once again. It's an effect I've been lucky enough to capture in some photos (because like all things it is temporary) and this is one of those photos. I still have bad days intermingled with good days, but as I have gotten farther along in transition it has definitely started to even out to something more homogenized in terms of a daily "feel good". A lot of it does have to do with wardrobe, and a lot of it has to do with knowing how to present myself in a way that makes me feel good. That is what makes the subtle changes from HRT and FFS shine. It is what makes me so darned happy most of the time- because that is what I wanted and I sought after it for months and months and months. I don't readily give up on things. Story of my life :P :)

It's crazy, isn't it? That Jenny looks like a twin of her old self yet looks undeniably and 100% female. Whenever I show cis friends before/after pics on these forums, they are ALWAYS most amazed by Jenny, despite other girls going through more drastic physical changes to look female.

Roni thank you so much, for the longest time (until I was 28) I looked at my face thinking I would need EXTENSIVE work done if I ever wanted to pass as female... I think that was part of the reason why I told myself it wasn't an option for so long. It's just crazy what a little salt and pepper will do ;) It wasn't until I came here and Shantel gave me some much needed support that I saw what little I really needed to change and how much I needed to LEARN!

And may I add, you are so inspiringly beautiful. Even before your FFS, a total knockout. Your happiness shows in every photo I see of you these days, and I will tell you it is incredibly contagious. Thanks for sharing with us!

The beard was grown for a musical I was in where I played banjo and sung! It was pretty fun, but I'm glad that phase of my life is over. I really need new headshots though... my current one still features a walrus moustache! Kinda confusing for people........ >_>

There are lots and lots of us here who shred.  Strangely most seem to be lefties.  I'm a lefty but I really play righty.  Oddly enough I have an easier time singing while playing rhythm lefty.

Chainmails are quite easy to make :). But I do suspect that that kind of bikini might chafe in some places. Umm. it might chafe everywhere :)

I've made chair mail before. In this case, the trick is to line it.

Kind thanks Kimberledy and Ally :).

Dee, I totally agree, lining it all up would be the most difficult part. I have made one chainmail which was quite easy and then I struggled with chainmail coif immensely though because it has round design - we actually discussed those notorious chainmail bikinis with one of my fellow reenactors who was also a blacksmith and sort of agreed that cups could be made by using two round basis for coifs and the rest would just run in regular straps. But even having no breasts for ourselves we agreed that this stuff would chafe as hell and be quite revealing, so using a beaten steel plates for cups and chainmail for straps did sound as a more reasonable idea :D.

No.. you are suffering from transwoman mirror syndrome (like all of us lol). I really cannot see any maleness. If anything your features remind me of Shane from "The L Word" who is quite easily one of the hotnessest..

It is your face though, and you deserve to like what you see, so if FFS is in your future, so be it, just know you're probably not getting looked at because you're being clocked as trans :)

WoW! your brow really flattened FHP, awesome!. Your face looks pretty feme to me. You can really see the difference. If I were you though I'd give my eyebrows a little shaping attention. I won't tell you you don't need FFS because you know the look you want. I'm the same way. What I will say is you've made an awesome transformation so far.

Best wishes. :icon_bunch:

Sheesh! So thats what you used to look like??  You look amazing!  At 7 months HRT you are in great shape.  I really don't think you will need FFS.  I am anxious to see how you look after even more time on HRT.

That is stunning, Princess!

My rule of thumb for FFS - most trans women do not "need" FFS strictly speaking, yet at the same time most trans women can benefit from FFS to varying degrees. I think it's pretty clear that you don't "need" it but if you want it, to help in accepting yourself more, go for it! :)

Here's a special treat. I figured I will put a before and after, though it's a "before and during."

Here's me about two months before I finally started to face my gender identity head on. Sheild your eyes!

I agree, ~Evelyn~ is a troll, also the girl in her avatar pic isn't her

She claims that she is that girl in that picture, I really doubt it unless she underwent through a surgery to make you look caucasian

I read one of her post where she was apologizing for posting fake pics of her, but from what we can see, she keeps doing it

She committed a huge mistake making her photobucket account public

stop impersonating another person, you are doing a lot of damage to that person posting pics in a trans forums it's even more dangerous

I posted on the second last page last thread, so I figured I'd do another (and better) before/after now that my nose cast is off! Tried to get my face pics as close in camera angle as possible for a fairer comparison.

And just to showcase my weight loss, here's a full body comparison:

4 months hormones, two weeks post FFS, laser hair removal done, 60 pound weight loss.

Wow!  That is hard!

Well, here is my transition thus far and even though I've come a long way, I am convinced that the best is yet to come.

I've been working on the weight loss for over to 3 years, in transition for 2½ years with 1½ years on Susan's and about that long on HRT.

Here I am, Dec. 2008 at 362 lbsa and in late 2010, just having started to work out and diet
(http://i.imgur.com/DRcnynX.jpg)          (http://i.imgur.com/XfPykgG.jpg)


The first one is me, Sept 2013.  I've now lost 139 lbs and been on HRT for 8 months.  Notice the breast growth under the suit and the white sports bra.  For some reason, I just won the lottery in that area.  Not so much in the face though.
(http://i.imgur.com/rq7420U.jpg)

Here is my unaltered picture and then an approximation of what FFS would do for me.  I used the approximation as my avatar for almost a year while I worked on getting insurance to pay for the FFS.  As one can see, I did not come close to passing.   
(http://i.imgur.com/ROMReC8.jpg)           (http://i.imgur.com/74Q5ZWh.jpg)

Just a few days prior to leaving for FFS.  My life had unraveled.  The delay for FFS caused severe dysphoria.  My marriage was blowing up.  I couldn't sleep.  Very hard time.
(http://i.imgur.com/r78nTYQ.jpg)

This is me a couple days post FFS  with Dr Z in a full head pressure cast.  The nurse was super, Cole was super everyone was super.  It made a hard time much easier.  I smiled though the pain knowing it was right.
(http://i.imgur.com/EQfKtc8.jpg)

A few days ago at work.  I'm down 164 lbs and I'm Jennifer, I'm me, I'm happy.  Although, I'm still dieting with another 20-30 to go!  I'll make it....
(http://i.imgur.com/5DQf4A1.jpg)   (http://i.imgur.com/PXDVYBJ.jpg)

Me, my favorite

P.S  I also got insurance to pay for FFS AND GRS is now covered at 100%.  If anyone wants help with insurance, I'm here and I'll help.

She doesn't look caucasian, she is not tanned in the last pic as she was pre-transitioning... I'm biracial too, and when I get tanned int he summer i look very dark and in the winter I can pass for caucasian sometimes... Plus, she had FFS which can change your appearance a lot, and besides  that I don't see the reason for doing what you are mentioning because she isn't getting anything from it, and she is a nice person, so just haters back off.

This is the first time I've looked at this thread and it will also be the last, I think, after seeing some of the comments about Evelyn. I've talked with her quite a bit. She is NOT a troll, and to those of you claiming she is, you should be ashamed of yourselves. I was looking forward to the day I could post before and after pictures on this site, but seeing how judgmental some people are, I don't think I'll be doing that now. God forbid I ever manage to look as feminine as the model in my avatar. Then I'll have to deal with the same disgusting comments about not being the same person from my old pics. Need I remind some of you that this is a support site? How about showing a little support to a young girl who had the courage to share her old photo?

In the pictures I just posted, my initial picture is even more different from my last than Evelyn is in her before and after.  I did put some things in the middle to tie then together.  The differences I see do not indicate a troll.  I believe she just got lucky genetically.

Pikachu, I've never seen this before.  Please, don't get to bizarre because something isn't right. 

All, unless there is more than evidence than what was posted, no one can call troll.  Pikachu is correct, we are here to support.

Need I remind some of you that this is a support site? How about showing a little support to a young girl who had the courage to share her old photo?

Well if your refering to me, I was not calling her a troll. It is however pretty obvious that the before picture is a completely different person from the after picture. I am not calling her trans status or struggle into question. Nor am I calling the success of her transition into question. All I am saying is the before picture is clearly not the same person as the after person. I have seen some truly UNBELIEVABLE transformations on this site. But there is always some resemblance to their former selves. Even with FFS and hormones. However, hormones or surgery or both, do Not change your skin pigment nor do they change your ethnicity. If she feels she has to use other photos here then thats her prerogative. You are correct this is a support site. But you will have to forgive us, but this isn't the first time this site has been infiltrated by fakes, trying to get a laugh or whatever. I will add the disclaimer that regardless of her before pic, her after pic is obviously amazing. I do not claim to be an expert in this matter or anything. Additionally if that is her then she takes the prize for the most drastic difference in before and after that this site has ever seen. If you are offended by me saying that I don't believe that is her in the before pic than you might want to look at my comment from a different point of view. IF and when you transition, and you become totally CIS looking to the point where no one believes that your before picture is actually you, I would consider that a huge compliment. Me personally I had a instance a couple of months ago where my own mother didn't even recognize me. I did not get "disgusted" I was flattered. You may want to get some fresh perspective. If she is so traumatized by someone saying the difference is her before and after pics is unbelievable then she missed the point of my comment just as you did, for which I am sorry.

Post by: keityp on July 17, 2014, 09:24:41 pm
Since I called her(~Evelyn~)a troll I will respond to that,


Just like Olivia said Unless she had a surgery to make her head smaller there's no way that that girl is her, hormones don't change your ethnicity nor your skeleton shape, she has way smaller shoulder, she keep showing pics of different girls, if you don't believe me just see her photobucket account and you'll see what I mean, her avatar, the girl there has a different head shape than the usual girl she always post and the guy in that pic isn't  from a person that is only 9,  nobody gets adams apple at that age.

And yes, I do believe that this forum is for support, but there's a big difference if you are impersonating another person in a trans forum just to feel "pretty" It's sad you only get compliment by posting pics that aren't yours

Paige,

Thank you.  For another four weeks, that is a wig - a very good wig but still a wig.  My hair isn't long enough yet even with extensions. But, in four weeks, I can go with extensions and it will work.  I will need a hair transplant if I want thick hair - it's about 5K at Bosley to get the hair quantity I want.  I'm going to try and bundle a hair transplant and some excess skin removal with Dr Z in Oct.  Maybe I can get it cheaper like that.  However, from what I was to where I am is great. 

Hugs,

Jen

Title: Re: The All New 'Before & After Topic (v 3.0)
Post by: ~Evelyn~ on July 18, 2014, 01:13:40 am
I would just like to shed some light on a few matters based on me here. To start off I will not be accusing anyone nor did I take anything to heart but to be honest I was Felt VERY hurt after reading some posts about me.

Firstly I would like to say that the pictures that I have posted here on this forum are all legit excet for one which I had apologised for. I will admit it was not easy at all to get where I am now. Also not many of you know my story about what happened to me during pre transition there was a horrible accident that could have decided my fate right there and then. Secondly yes I was very dark back then, BUT I was like that for a reason. As you all know gender identity problems is not something we could just brush off as if it were a simple thought. So to block this problem from my mind I took up a whole lot of activities like sports and other outdoor activities. I am also a person who is absolutely facinated by beaches I love going to the beach so yeah that explains my tan, that combined with my sports activities made me very dark skinned. Also in my current avatar pic I did get slightly tanned as I was part of a beach conservation campaign here in Malaysia, out beaches have gotten really dirty so someone put together an organisation to help clean our beaches. I wanted to post a picture of me and my family when I was still young and to show that I was fair skinned but after this I will not be posting anymore pictures at all till I feel better or till my mum allows it. My mum did not want her or my dads pictures up here after they read all the posts about me.

Thirdly regarding my photobucket and what I get out of my pictures. Ill start with photobucket. I made my photobucket public so all the wonderful people here may see that nothing is impossible and that there is always hope for you no matter who you are. Mainly some pictures there were for me to put up on a blog here on Susan's. I had requested for one but currently tey are not taking any blogs. On that blog I wanted to tell you all about what I went through as a youngling and how my appearence changed twice during pre transition. Like I said earlier It was mainly to give that message to people that nothing is impossible and I want the best for everyone here and I would love to help them in anyway I can. No one should have gone through what I did.

Now about my pictures. I will admit that I love getting complimented I mean who doesn't? But to be honest  I dont expect anything out of my pictures at all. I post pictures because I feel like it and I am trying to bring smiles to peoples faces by smiling myself, everyone deserves to be happy.

Finally I would like to say that if I were a troll what would I be looking for here? There a thousands of forums on the net so why troll this one? It does not make any sense whatsoever. If I were to troll or to scam I would probably do that on some lottery competion online or some online survey to send stuff to people who arent expecting any deliveries and a bunch of other things like a prank I prefer to call it. But this is no place to troll as everyone needs constant support.

This is all I have to say. My hugs and kisses to everyone here.

I hope it's okay to post since I have yet to start HRT. I'm hoping for sometime in the next month or two.

Here is what I look like in guy clothes and a bad camera angle.
(https://imagizer.imageshack.us/v2/1668x1109q90/441/dsc00528ql.jpg)

Here is one without my face and one that was originally just for my own benefit. I never intended to show anyone the second picture.
(http://i.imgur.com/avn2Olk.png) (http://i.imgur.com/PTKAxRZ.jpg)

I took most of these pictures when I was still afraid of having pictures with my face and me wearing women's clothing in them on the internet. Now that I'm going out in public it seems pointless to worry. Actually, I honestly can't stand my face as it is right now so that was part of it too.

Here are the rest of my pictures. http://elementc.imgur.com/all/

I have a feeling some of you might not like my taste in clothes. I guess I overcompensate by emphasizing my waist and trying to distract from my face, but I genuinely like what I wear.

I know next to nothing about makeup at this point. I desperately want someone to show me how in person but no one I know has shown even the slightest interest in helping. "Just look it up on Youtube."

JLT1, that is some amazing progress. Kudos on the hard work!

I was actually going to say really cute dress, a bit stretchy for my tastes, I am more of a flowy/floppy type of girl.
Your hairstyle is teh awesome also :).
I have looked at your pictures, and you and I share some traits. I am also trying to work with makeup and having to get all of my info from youtube. I have seen some amazing work done by professionals, but let's be honest, their work often takes hours and hundreds of dollars of product. I want to get a pattern together that I can apply in a half hour using only four or five products (concealer, foundation, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, lipstick, etc) that I can also quickly remove, as the days where I am able to stay in girl mode for an entire day are limited.

Post by: Skeptoid on July 18, 2014, 03:01:50 am
The issue I have with makeup is that to practice on myself would be really expensive. I have worked up to wearing short shorts around my dad despite being threatened with getting kicked out of the house, etc., etc., on more than one truly horrifying occasion. So when I wear dresses and skirts I still hide them and change in the car when I leave. Pretty pathetic situation at almost 25 years old. Back to the point, if I put makeup on at home it would be risky anyway and I have limited times when I can wear it since I have to work in a kitchen almost every day. Practicality alone makes it a poor choice. Ideally, I'd like someone who knows what they're doing to apply makeup and show me what is possible with experience and teach me the basics. Maybe recommend a few brands. I went to a Macy's and had them find my foundation shade but I can't afford that stuff at this time. I view getting started on HRT as way more important and with my limited funds I have to deal with the up front costs first. I tried buying the el cheapo stuff at Walmart a few months back and it was... very disappointing. The eyeliner barely went on, the tip broke, and the mascara was globby as all get out.

WOW.
Megan you look fantastic (I've thought so in all your pics I've come across) and your transition is so inspiring. I would be happy with half of the results you have had. Starting in 2001 and now in 2014, I am so impressed by your dedication to your transition. It has paid off in spades, and I am not just saying that because I have a thing for girls with glasses.

So long ago, but really not much changes, not really. If only my transformation was as dramatic as some others on here, or if I had started even sooner, but eh, can't have it all. Its just a matter of growing used to my own looks and appreciating them for what they are, me. Thank you.

Megan,

Wow, you’re beautiful.  And you did it w/o surgery.  Just beautiful.

Nope. No surgery. Just hormones and plucking of hair.

WOW.

Glad to hear that I inspire, wouldn't want it to be that I do the opposite, repulse people or cause them to jump off bridges. Actually not dedication, just living. And seriously, too many of my years was spent feeling too comfortable that I didn't do what I should have all those years, I could have been saving up, get some more things done for myself when I was doing better with money. Eh, there's still time, I'm only going on 40. ;D

you turn me so green

I said the same thing for many of the others on here. But that was before getting back on the hormones again. Now, eh, so I'm not what I'd ideally want myself to be, but I'm okay with that, right now. At least I'm me.

Megan, you always look so pretty!

I think the same of you!

I deeply appreciate your kind words. Though I never noticed a resemblance myself, that's the second time someone compared me to Cate Blanchett in the past week (never previously). Funny how the world works.

Yes, I feel like I won the genetic lotter with my figure. As for losing weight, I simply never gained any. There was a time I tried, briefly, and got to about 129lbs. I have never in my entire life managed more than that. I'm 5'9" for some context.  O_O

I can hardly contain myself. After setting up my first appointment today the feeling of the ticking of the clock is mitigated. The older I got the worse I felt. Now that the wait is almost over to at least halt sone of the future damage... it's almost unbearable but in a different way. Its very imminence is now the problem. Haha, but this kind of wait I can handle. It's the kind of impatience before Christmas.

I plan to exhaustively document the changes from many angles.

I just love that dress your wearing in this photo Megan. It looks very cute on you. Sleeveless/strappy sun dresses like these are my absolute favorite thing to wear. I'm wearing my favorite one in my wardrobe in my Avatar pic.

That is wonderful Jen. Very powerful and inspirational for late transitioners! Thank you for sharing.

I started turning grey in the sixth grade.  I hope to inspire everyone because it is never too late.  I'm only 52.

Having said all that, thank you for your kind words.  Old or young, it has been difficult.

Well, here is my transition thus far and even though I've come a long way, I am convinced that the best is yet to come.

I've been working on the weight loss for over to 3 years, in transition for 2½ years with 1½ years on Susan's and about that long on HRT.

Here I am, Dec. 2008 at 362 lbsa and in late 2010, just having started to work out and diet
(http://i.imgur.com/DRcnynX.jpg)          (http://i.imgur.com/XfPykgG.jpg)


The first one is me, Sept 2013.  I've now lost 139 lbs and been on HRT for 8 months.  Notice the breast growth under the suit and the white sports bra.  For some reason, I just won the lottery in that area.  Not so much in the face though.
(http://i.imgur.com/rq7420U.jpg)

Here is my unaltered picture and then an approximation of what FFS would do for me.  I used the approximation as my avatar for almost a year while I worked on getting insurance to pay for the FFS.  As one can see, I did not come close to passing.   
(http://i.imgur.com/ROMReC8.jpg)           (http://i.imgur.com/74Q5ZWh.jpg)

Just a few days prior to leaving for FFS.  My life had unraveled.  The delay for FFS caused severe dysphoria.  My marriage was blowing up.  I couldn't sleep.  Very hard time.
(http://i.imgur.com/r78nTYQ.jpg)

This is me a couple days post FFS  with Dr Z in a full head pressure cast.  The nurse was super, Cole was super everyone was super.  It made a hard time much easier.  I smiled though the pain knowing it was right.
(http://i.imgur.com/EQfKtc8.jpg)

A few days ago at work.  I'm down 164 lbs and I'm Jennifer, I'm me, I'm happy.  Although, I'm still dieting with another 20-30 to go!  I'll make it....
(http://i.imgur.com/5DQf4A1.jpg)   (http://i.imgur.com/PXDVYBJ.jpg)

I hope it's okay to post since I have yet to start HRT. I'm hoping for sometime in the next month or two.

I took most of these pictures when I was still afraid of having pictures with my face and me wearing women's clothing in them on the internet. Now that I'm going out in public it seems pointless to worry. Actually, I honestly can't stand my face as it is right now so that was part of it too.

I have a feeling some of you might not like my taste in clothes. I guess I overcompensate by emphasizing my waist and trying to distract from my face, but I genuinely like what I wear.

I know next to nothing about makeup at this point. I desperately want someone to show me how in person but no one I know has shown even the slightest interest in helping. "Just look it up on Youtube."

OMG!  You are going to be incredible.  Looking at you right now, if HRT does anything at all you are going to be beautiful. 

Hugs,

Jen

I likes. Now that's a good before and after pic, same place, similar pose, same clothes, prettier face.

I wanted my mind to be at ease for once. I wanted the same clothes, location, lighting, angle, etc. so I couldn't later rationalize why the picture looked better than 2 years ago. I think it's working (:

Paige,

Thank you.  For another four weeks, that is a wig - a very good wig but still a wig.  My hair isn't long enough yet even with extensions. But, in four weeks, I can go with extensions and it will work.  I will need a hair transplant if I want thick hair - it's about 5K at Bosley to get the hair quantity I want.  I'm going to try and bundle a hair transplant and some excess skin removal with Dr Z in Oct.  Maybe I can get it cheaper like that.  However, from what I was to where I am is great. 

Hugs,

Jen

Thanks Jen, you're certainly an inspiration to us older girls.

I'm Stella's girlfriend (she can confirm this), and while I don't want to intrude any on this thread, I wanted to pop by and say that she doesn't give herself enough credit. Every day is a good photo day for her. She keeps becoming more and more stunning, and through her transition, I've never seen her have a day where she didn't look feminine and gorgeous, makeup or no. Of course, she thinks I'm biased, but it's true. I think the only person that doesn't see how beautiful she is, is herself.

I think I've documented her transition more than she has (I'm obsessed with taking pictures of her perdy-ness) and the change is amazing. She found herself, and you can certainly tell. Her smile isn't half-hearted now, and it kind of lights up her whole face (and the world, but you know).

She constantly and consistently amazes me with her strength, especially with all the obstacles that life has thrown her way.

On a final note, you're all amazing and beautiful ladies. Stay strong. <3

HRT is going to do wonders for you, Annabella.

Makeup advice...based on your before photo I'd say your foundation is a shade or two too light and perhaps caked on a bit too much.  You did a good job with beard cover though.  I'd also add some blush, and you need to spend time working on eye makeup.  The lip color is good for a nighttime look, but too dramatic for daytime.  But i guess it does go with your dress.  :)

Quite a dramatic change, Annabella.  You do look pretty, and if that's before HRT and any surgery, you'll have some rather enviable results!  (Not that I'm not jealous already...)

I personally like the stark color contrasts; the blacks and reds stand out against the pale backdrop of your face and hair.  It's not makeup that will make you fade into the crowd, and it's eye catching and classic.  For day-to-day looks, it might be too intense, and something more subtle with a wider palette would still make you look equally feminine, just less striking.  For a night out, though, what you've shown in your photos is awesome.

What I get out of that is you wanted to say something judgemental.
My race is against myself and I'm winning.
It's hard for me to put myself our for scrutiny as I see your lack of profile attests you'll agree.

Ok, I am going to edit some of these photos out the next time I post one of these. This is getting pretty long. But hey, why not. Nine months in. Boobs are boobing. Body softening. Belly finally starting to go elsewhere but not fast enough.

Transition takes a lot of work. I am not full time yet. Don't quite have the wardrobe. But I am full time socially and then some. I would not say I have yet hit male fail but I am amazed to see that the time may come. I would gladly trade my shoulders for hips.

All of the people who post in this thread inspire me and I figure I should return the favor.

I try to avoid the downward spiral of vanity when possible but it does feel nice to look your best.

There is a long way to go but... nine months makes some changes.

Anyhoo, here is a timeline from before I started to last week.

Always start with a beard pic if possible.

All of your photos are so wonderful. I haven't started HRT yet, but I can't wait to post my face(s) here. I'm really hoping it will do as an amazing job as everyone else. I know it's a case-by-case kind of thing, but all I see is magic. I think the only physical procedure I'll be getting is electrolysis. I'm too poor to afford much else. If you want to see what I look like now, click her: https://scontent-b-dfw.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/t1.0-9/10352743_10154345020205253_7145049362695641472_n.jpg (https://scontent-b-dfw.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-xap1/t1.0-9/10352743_10154345020205253_7145049362695641472_n.jpg).

Ok, I am going to edit some of these photos out the next time I post one of these. This is getting pretty long. But hey, why not. Nine months in. Boobs are boobing. Body softening. Belly finally starting to go elsewhere but not fast enough.

Transition takes a lot of work. I am not full time yet. Don't quite have the wardrobe. But I am full time socially and then some. I would not say I have yet hit male fail but I am amazed to see that the time may come. I would gladly trade my shoulders for hips.

All of the people who post in this thread inspire me and I figure I should return the favor.

I try to avoid the downward spiral of vanity when possible but it does feel nice to look your best.

There is a long way to go but... nine months makes some changes.

Anyhoo, here is a timeline from before I started to last week.

Always start with a beard pic if possible.

And hey! 1000th post. Cool.
WoW girl you've come a very very loooooong way in only 9 months. You look great! Just think of where you'll be in another 12!

Started out with earliest baby pic, added to it, every several years or so of me, then every year from 2006 onward (skipping 2010 since I have none for that year). Started living full time as a woman February 6th 2001. Started hormones May 19th 2001.

To me mature transitioners are rock stars.  I read things like "here I am pre hrt and living fulltime"  Im like....yeh... Id have done that Id had been in a straight jacket.  To become our true selves at risk of so much..families, wealth, status, friends, to be ostrocized by not only the the general population but even younger more"passable" trans people.  We have risked everything to say nothing of trying to conquer 50 years of testosterone ravaging out bodies and billions and billions, billions and billions...etc etc... of white face hairs.  I talked to one younger trans had two laser treatments and it was gone.....take a 32 hour two day clearing and we'll talk sugar...I dont want to hear how hard it was for that 15 min laser treatment on your lip that one time.

If we were mountain climbing we'd be on top of Denali from where we started whereas the younger tiny little things that put a skirt on and went out the door took a step up well...maybe less accomplished?

You are beautiful and precious and so admirable to be yourselves and have would win any beauty pageant I judged as the beauty of a person is not only the flesh but the soul.

Hugs to you and best wishes for your lives and all happiness.

Stevie

LOL, too funny.

Lucky for me, my facial hair is pretty weak. I mean, I could probably grow a very pathetic beard, but it's far less dense than my male peers. I'll probably take the electrolysis route which, from what I understand, is way more painful. I'm hoping it won't take a whole year to do. I think after six months of HRT in my system it might be a bit easier to tackle, but I know nothing of this treatment. I'd rather endure months of that, though, than have to waste $30 on razor replacements all the time shaving this itchy mess. The hair on my neck grows in sideways, too, and I can never get everything. I'm 33, and I imagine that in 20 years from now it'll just be worse, so kudos to all the "older" folk for trudging through what is one of the most annoying obstacles of transition.

I'd laser the dark ones asap, fry that stuff pronto.

I really don't think anyone looks like they should have facial hair. It covers up your features, otherwise you're just a talking bush with eyes.  :D I guess some people pull it off, but if you line everyone up with a full beard you couldn't possibly pick someone out in a lineup unless they have a tattoo on their forehead. I have a friend who loves beards, and she even married one. I can barely stand two-day stubble, and it's not even all that thick. Still, it's itchy. Look at the singer for Placebo. He looks amazing, but when he decides to grow his facial hair it's like nononono shave it immediately!

Early spring 2012, I was doing a Star Wars photo shoot and I look so bad ass!

Just a couple weeks ago at the airport about to come home and a sexy pic before I left for Boston. Sorry but I don't have a full body shot!

It's been awhile since I posted here, and since I've actually been on HRT for almost a couple months there might be something a bit more noticeable this time around. It mostly seems to chart my hair growth, since I basically haven't cut it after my first girl hair cut. The last one is the only one post HRT, at just about the month mark.

4 months? No! Why do you, like so many others, look like you're on the the 'BC powder" fast-acting version of hrt? At 4 months, I think the sum total of my development was . . . moodiness. You're off to such a great start.

I have been updating my after picture about every week or two in this thread because I am changing so fast these days.  I decided to put an interim picture in this post. There are only 78 days between the first and second pictures here, but I have lost a lot of weight in that time, and have totally changed my lower body. I am using no padding or enhancers underneath. What you see is all me.

Although I didn't love that picture then, I absolutely love it now. The farther that picture is my rear view mirror, the more I can laugh about it. I showed it at a club the other night, and somebody said I used to look like a serial killer. And know what, they were absolutely right.

Jessica, Thank you so very much; you are so kind! Yes, I am very pleased with what has happened in just a short period of time. It's funny but I spent years looking in the mirror trying to see a woman in there, and I never could. If I knew then, what I know now, I would have done this 20 years ago.

The right is a much happier 49 year-old-woman starting her new life--with a new position--with a growing Fortune 250 company (same company, but we just moved up a few notches).

Thanks!

Shantel, You are so very kind!

I am afraid that I did indeed scare a few people with my before picture. I really wasn't a serial killer (honestly). I thought I would show another from about 7 years ago where I look a little bit more innocuous, and shows my body. I weighed about 240 then, which is about 75 pounds more than I weigh now.

That's quite a big change alright. Funny thing is that I looked very similar to you and weighed about the same when I started transition at 51 though I'm only 5' 7" and at 135 lbs back then I was really kind of an unhappy tubster. I dropped 80 lbs through diet and exercise but as of late have gained a bit, so it's time to get on the stick and shape up. You're looking terrific April, cyber hugs to you dear!

Thanks! That particular picture was taken at 16 months into my transition. I suppose starting at my age can make a huge difference. Even my hips have rotated and widened to match that of a cisfemale. It hurts like crazy some times but hey, tis the price for beauty lol.

Well, here's mine. I think this has been an incredible transformation for me. I should mention that the long hair is a wig as I just retired from the Navy 28JUL14. It's still growing and I can't wait to see it in full bloom :)

This is a marvellous transformation, Kira! You look beautiful and happy. This is what I love about going through threads like these--so often, whether or not someone is  smiling, there's something that comes through in the after photos that shows a person who feels happier and more at peace. Although I'm in many ways just starting to live more openly as the girl I've always had inside me, I feel a great deal happier when I am able to present as her.

It's about time I did this. :) Some notes. I wear a wig due to hair loss. The before picture is head shaved, something I did for years to avoid thinking about hair loss, most of which was on top. The sides would grow fine. During HRT so far, I've had a small amount of regrowth but not anywhere near enough to consider going without a wig for now. I think I'm doing ok so far for an old lady. :) And yes, those are my A cups, small, but mine. :)

Before (about 8 years ago but I looked like that for years before and after):

Hey, that house across the street behind you looks very familiar to me! Is that by chance in the U of M area? And have you lived in Memphis before? Asking because I lived there till I was 17, then I also moved back for 6 months last year (not to mention, during that time, I met so many more awesome people than before, it's sure changed a lot!). Oh yeah, and by the way, you look beautiful!

I don't live in Memphis myself. I'm from Houston, Texas and was visiting friends. I had just gotten out of my car and was walking up to the house where several friends were already gathered in the driveway and one insisted she get a picture of me in the front yard. And that's the shot she got. :) I'm not sure exactly where that is in relationship to the university. Sorry! :)

I'm from Houston, too. It kinda looks like the Heights area. I don't see many houses of that style anywhere else.

I don't live in Houston. I think sororcaeli was thinking that was a house in Houston, where he's from. But, yeah that's crazy. I swear that house in the backdrop across the street is my buddy Jordan's house, and yes it's just east of Highland, south of Spottswood, kinda where you're referring to. I remember going to a New Years Eve party there ringing in 2013, with a local band Agori Tribe playing there. Awesome!

from Nov., Jan. and the second one at 2 weeks ago

started HRT  Nov. 6

Does anyone see some change. I have a hard time being objective

oops, I don't know how that second to last one got in there

Hope I'm doing this right, I've not tried to comment on an older post so.....very nice change for such a short period of time Stephanie.  Only hope I can gain this much ground in facial softening.  Dani  P.S. I dont often get time to scroll thru past pics.

As you can see theres nothing in the last 8 month ... even the hair isnt getting longer and i tought it grow without do anything. Do ive to put water on it, like in the garden? No! Its not funny. Nothing is funny anymore!  :embarrassed:

Your overall appearance has become much more feminine galaxy!! Its very noticeable around your chin and neck area.  :angel:

Galaxy your very pretty already  and although you dont think you see the changes there are diffrences in the pictures. Have u ever tried flat ironing you hair?

Likewise, it's amazing how much of a difference feeling happy makes on top of the physical changes.

You look great, I think we all wish we had longer more female legs, but then so do most girls :)

Quite a change! a good one at that too. ^_^

THIS!!  Galaxy, you really do look amazing.  I know it's tough for you to see it, but you should take our word for it.  You look natural and very feminine...not like a good looking transwoman...like an actual pretty girl.  :)

And someone suggested trying a flat iron on your hair.  I think that would look super cute!

Today one of my friends asked me what I looked like before, I said I have some pictures and proceeded to produce them to much amazement, figured the whole thing belongs here given the reactions.

I very much agree with this^^____^^. I can easily see around your neck and chin area has greatly feminized. your hair is about an inch or two longer as well, your just not noticing it hun.

"Du spinnst!" (English - you must be kidding!)

I know it must be hard for you to see or accept that there have been any positive changes when you are always so hard on yourself! As other posters have already said, the two photos show clear softening and feminisation of your features in the latter one.

You have nothing to be embarrassed about. Don't be so hard on yourself! It's not a competition, but you look terrific - enjoy that fact, and make the most of it.

Yup, Marcie Bowers is still hanging on to half of my SRS pre-op consultation fee saying it's never too late and a lot of people often change their minds later on. She's performed SRS surgeries to folks in their mid- eighties.

(Probably not the best to see the face... But you've no idea how hard it was to find a pic without drugs, booze, or upper body nudity...)

My first day being me... No make-up, or anything.... Though yes, it's clearly a wig. (Okay I'm wearing a tiny bit in my eyes only, but no foundation) Circa - Almost three years ago.

Bluebird, that is quite an amazing transformation from "guy who looks kinda scary and might call me something mean" to "<I don't understand> she's hot!"  Thanks for posting - seeing girls who have done so well (and pre-HRT too in the last photo? Nice!) really makes those long, miserable months during which I think I'll never look female go by so much easier.  Your hair in the last photo is absolutely beautiful too - what wonderful curls you have, and what a pretty color.

The funny thing, Brenda... If you think that's scary you should have seen me in my skinhead phase.... Haha... Yeah I did get in a lot of trouble and a few fights, but I wasn't entirely bad.. I mean I came from there, right? :P  About my hair; It's annoying trust me.. I'm jealous of people who can get it straight coz it takes ages to straighten, and it takes a lot of TLC to keep the curls just right... At least if it where straight the first one wouldn't be so hard, haha... Ah well :)

I know what incredible things are possible in transition. Though, i am impressed about your changes!
It's always beautiful to see when people are making such great steps in such a short time and i think it's spending a lot of hope for all "newcomers" to see that it IS possible.

Hi Peps.    I just joined this site and have only been on hormones for about 1 month but been doing Drag Shows for several years.  I have always wondered if I am fem or passable enough in my looks.   Exsp. since my hobbies are rather masculine like MMA; Billiards; Cars and Guns amongst other things.   But here is a picture of me one month 1.5 months on spiro.    Thoughts; comments; suggestions greatly appreciated.

Another update. The first picture is from 3 years ago my during my freshman year of college. The second picture is from a few minutes ago and I will be 8 months on HRT next week. I really don't know what has changed to be honest but I can visually see a boy in the first and a girl in the second lol. When it comes to HRT affecting the face, I can't put a tiger on what it does but each day as I look into the mirror, I see more and more of myself. Also my 21st birthday is tomorrow! I'm so excited <3

Every now and then I get a really good photo. hehe  :laugh: Though I need to take some news ones, the only ones I have are back from April of this year.  :-\

I feel pretty confident when I say, that a decent modeling agency will hire you without a second glance! Just be sure to have tons of photos of yourself in different places and outfits!

Hmmm losing more weight would be awesome for both of us! It would be...double awesome lol XD

I feel pretty confident when I say, that a decent modeling agency will hire you without a second glance! Just be sure to have tons of photos of yourself in different places and outfits!

Hmmm losing more weight would be awesome for both of us! It would be...double awesome lol XD

That's lovely hun, I really appreciate it. My friend in the front of the pic who is my roommate was just nominated babe of the week on a modelling website and could get herself a contract out of it. Love her smexy arse to bits :D xx

Keeping the weight off is a pain though, I've had a real problem with it on my arms and I'm hoping that with a change in diet, I'll be able to shift it for good. You're very photogenic, just going on the few pics that I can see right now :) x

Another update. The first picture is from 3 years ago my during my freshman year of college. The second picture is from a few minutes ago and I will be 8 months on HRT next week. I really don't know what has changed to be honest but I can visually see a boy in the first and a girl in the second lol. When it comes to HRT affecting the face, I can't put a tiger on what it does but each day as I look into the mirror, I see more and more of myself. Also my 21st birthday is tomorrow! I'm so excited <3

[Link Removed]
 3. June 2012, 10 mo. FT 190 lbs.?                                   4. April 2014, 32 mo. FT  185 lbs.                                   5. Sept. 15, 2014  3 years 8 days Full Time!!! 173 lbs.

THE FIRST PHOTO IS OVERUSED HERE, BUT I LOATHED MYSELF SO TERRIBLY I GENERALLY FORBADE PHOTOS. SO IT'S ONE OF THE FEW I HAVE AROUND THE TIME I TRANSITIONED.

I don't know how happy I look in these other photos, but I'd never been happy until I transitioned, and it keeps getting better. I weighed 226 on my first day of HRT,
and got down by May 2013 to 160. My brother had a liver transplant that failed and he died, July 10th, 2013, and I went all the way back up to 188 by February 2014,
and am losing weight again. Yesterday, September 14th, I was down to 173. Hopefully, early next year I'll have my GRS in Thailand…..I can hardly wait!!!

BY THE WAY, I JUST TURNED 60 A MONTH AGO, AND HAD MY NAME AND GENDER CHANGE THE DAY BEFORE MY B-DAY!     I NEVER THOUGHT LIFE COULD BE ANYTHING LIKE THIS!!!

Mira, you were one of my biggest inspirations here during my early days beginning my transition. You showed me my age didn't matter and you eased my mind about being a member with my being intersexed. And you continue to be a huge inspiration to me and I'm sure many other girls here. Your very beautiful Mira. I so much enjoy seeing your updates as you become more and more beautiful with each one! Good luck with your GRS.

I'm very sorry to hear about your brother. :icon_bunch:

You are so beautiful and a fantastic role model for new transitioners Miranda. Best of luck in Thailand next year, excited for you!  ;D
All I ever wanted in my life was to be a girl/woman, and the love and support I've received from you sweet and caring women here continues to humble me each time I post something. I hope and pray my words mean one tenth as much to you as yours mean to me. I haven't been clocked since the first month or two after transitioning and I can't help but put much of the credit for that on you girls! Confidence in oneself goes a long, long way in projecting 'female' to the world, and your kindness has definitely helped. God bless you all. Mira

P.S. Thank you, Ally, for your thoughts about my brother. I really miss him, especially because after my transition he finally understood I was always his sister.

Day 226 - Among the turbulence of my current domestic situation, my 8th month anniversary passed a week ago. I am not eating much these days, so I am actually pretty gaunt for the first time since I was in college. I am also stressed to death, and I am sure it shows here, but I really like this recent picture of me (even taken with the poor quality webcam) . The April I have seen in my mind for a while now, becomes a little bit more flesh in blood with each month that goes by.

I just could not stop seeing the old me in the mirror.  I did not realize it until tonight looking at this post again... but now that I look at my old face, I don't see myself in it anymore.  It's a familiar face, but it's no longer mine.  That's a  real surprise for me...

Reading through this thread has been a lot of inspiration for me.  I'm honored that I can give that to someone else too.  Thanks so much for all the kind words. :icon_redface:

Not a problem at all!  :)  I started HRT in July 2013, two months after turning 28.  The middle picture would've been at 4 months.  So... that means I've been on it for 14 months in the latest picture.  (wow...)  Hope that helps.

Miranda, Thank you so very much. I think you are absolutely beautiful as well! When I was first started thinking about doing this, I never believed that I could ever come close to looking anything like a female. But places like this thread gave me hope that much was possible, so I took the plunge. Yet I remember the first time I dressed female how depressed it felt. I was just a man in a dress. Then after doing it a few times, I had a spiritual moment of sorts. I saw myself not as the person in the mirror at that moment, but what I could become. That was the real beginning of my transition. The process has been almost mystical since that time. Below is another picture of me in the same dress just a little over 4 months ago. I looked at it and others from about that same time last night, and I was amazed by how much has happened in so little time. If I had one message so far about my transition, it is that much more is possible than we can ever imagined. Even for somebody as old as me.

Well, it's a little earlier than I was expecting to do this. I was planning to wait at least until my 24th Birthday later this year, but I think now is a good time to show my before/after timeline.

This first photo is from Fall 2013 before I even identified as trans.

So I took a pic of my new pink hair and it made me really happy to see how things are coming along, and it's been a while since I posted in 1 of the photo threads so I figured I'd share my happiness :)  This is after 9 months low dose, 15 months full dose, 1 month endo approved dose HRT and a fair bit of pew pew pew to the face :)

These 2 are of me drunk in the sunshine :)

Not a problem at all!  :)  I started HRT in July 2013, two months after turning 28.  The middle picture would've been at 4 months.  So... that means I've been on it for 14 months in the latest picture.  (wow...)  Hope that helps.


Thanks for sharing. I was asking because I was hoping you were near my age range and you are.  :)

I'm gonna pm you a question or two coz I don't want to derail the thread...

You started HRT on the exact same day as me!  :)

Good progress so far btw.

So I took a pic of my new pink hair and it made me really happy to see how things are coming along, and it's been a while since I posted in 1 of the photo threads so I figured I'd share my happiness :)  This is after 9 months low dose, 15 months full dose, 1 month endo approved dose HRT and a fair bit of pew pew pew to the face :)

These 2 are of me drunk in the sunshine :)

Here's a little pic of me from the last days and a little on from January 2014 - timerange between it is nearly 9 month. When people ask me if i satisfied with my progress a have to ask "which progress"? As you can see theres nothing in the last 8 month ... even the hair isnt getting longer and i tought it grow without do anything. Do ive to put water on it, like in the garden? No! Its not funny. Nothing is funny anymore!  :embarrassed:

You look beautiful Galaxy.  But I don't think we need to sit in the garden for hair to grow, but please let us know if it does help  :D

Wow, you've come a long distance Natalia! The only thing I would change is that your eyebrows seem to come too far past the outside corners of your eyes and hook downward, I'd change that and other than that you're looking mighty fine there lady!

Plus I think this new old photo that I found better demonstrates how far I've come compared to any of the other pictures I've shown here thus far.

On the left is me now and on the right is me months and months before hormones. Time flies so quickly when you are having fun! :laugh:

Been on HRT for 11 months now.  Just got my new license this week!  It has my new name on it and updated gender marker ( I <3 Colorado, so easy to get gender marker updated ).  Thought I would throw them both up side by side to see how much I've changed over the last 2 years.

Congrat's Zoe! Isn't it great to see that great big "F" beside the word "sex" on your license! :eusa_clap: I know how happy I was when I got mine done, so I can imagine the elation your feeling!Also it looks like you've changed quite a bit for the better!

Yeah Zoe! ID Before/Afters warm my heart for some reason. And your license ID is actually good! Mine is terrible, haha. Congrats!

Hayley, at a glance, I legitimately thought your before was you trying to pass as male, and added the facial hair with either makeup or photoshop. Awesome starting point, and your "current" is astounding! You're beautiful!

So, I already posted this in "fabulous," but was kinda excited seeing this pic against an old one. So here's my contribution; before is shortly before I last cut my own hair, a little over 2 years ago. And then this morning, after cutting my hair last night for the first time since!

Thank you!! The photoshoot you posted from your avatar looked so awesome, I meant to comment on those. And yeah, I was so detached, I didn't really care about it being a "man" face. If I wasn't hiding from the camera, I was either making a face, or glaring back.

WoW Dee what an awesome transformation! Your very pretty and have such a lovely face. You did a great job with your hair! I can never cut my own hair. I'll mess it up every time, lol! :D

I don't know if there's a limit on photos, but I think I've changed a great deal in three years. I'm also one of the older women here, at sixty (60) years old. I started HRT 25 days before my 57th birthday. I saw some older women's photos when I started and they gave me hope. I pray that mine may do the same. Hugs, Mira

Whenever I feel down, this thread is one that inspires me so much, I love seeing every single transformation! Everybody looks amazing and whenever I have the confidence/have allowed enough time to pass to post my own before/after contrast photos I'll do so without a doubt.  :) I definitely have a before photo in mind, a pretty slick wedding photo about 3 years ago, which I'll need to dig out, definitely sure it's somewhere on this computer...anyway, thanks everybody for lifting my mood!

Is it also alright to put before and afters pre-HRT? I kept my photo of two years ago next of my recent one and can't say other than being very happy with crazy many changes already :D! Anddd otherwise I will wait a year or so, till I am further on the hormone therapy D:

Whaaatever, I will just upload it and if it isn't part of the plan to upload before and afters before HRT even started, please just delete it :P.

Find it a little scary to upload this anyway, my male photos never really gotten uploaded ever x___x.

Kay! I practiced photography with self portraits, so I got lotsa pictures :D! Second image is how I would have looked if I had 'fixed' my jaw back then (I had braces and they said I should get jaw surgery for the perfect teeth). The third was when I was trying out cross-dressing and stood closer to myself, but just wasn't sure of which way I wanted to go =/. I thought as a girl I looked horrible (not even going to show those pics D:!) so I tried to convince myself to stick to looking like a guy.
4th picture, well, you can judge the time by the length of my hair :P. I think my expression changed and I got eye shadow on.. .. I never got that but I was probably trying stuff out o.o.

Last one is my avatar at the moment and the most recent one ^^.

Sorry for the many pictures lately ._. just exciting stuff is finally getting serious here :P (sounds like a movie o.o).

Not sure if this stays up either, mehhh don't like my old pictures, at all.

Thanks, Ally! I like this photo because it's the closest to looking like what I see in the mirror, if that makes sense. Most of my selfies just do not come out like I think I look. And I am at that point where I'm a woman going about her day. It was cold and I had not showered that day. I had been to the store and had left kids books in the car. It's the mundanity and reality of being a woman that most of us really want to achieve. Nothing glamorous. Just. Just life.

Love all of you. So much. I'm touched.

Thank you, Ally! I can't wait for my hair to grow longer. I shouldn't have cut it last month. In November, I'll try to put on some make-up. It's about time. I am totally clueless on how to do that so I guess it's time to look for help haha.

Been wanting to do this ever since my awesome picture of me with my new glasses.

Me, about a year before coming out to myself:
(http://i.imgur.com/ewWUdXh.jpg)

Me, right as I started going to therapy, which was about a month or two after coming out in February 2013
(http://i.imgur.com/L7Etrkl.jpg)

I believe I took this right as I started taking low doses of Spiro, which would have been September/Octoboer of 2013. Maybe earlier.
(http://i.imgur.com/0TM8THk.png)

This is me, probably around May. 7 months HRT:
(http://i.imgur.com/IemDMp3.jpg)


This weekend. 11 months HRT (no makeup or anything):
(http://i.imgur.com/tBzIMno.png) (http://i.imgur.com/t3u8tLt.png)

Those last two was the first time I've ever really saw myself as female. Yes, I've got a little bit of work to do, but I think I've jumped the major hurdles already.

Thanks! There's really nothing I can do about the bossing other than FFS.... which I refuse to do. All in all it's not that bad. I've seen ciswomen with worse. I think if I do a bit of eyebrow shaping and get rid of that beard shadow I'd be good.

HOW you are so pretty! How did you do it?!!!

I posted on the second last page last thread, so I figured I'd do another (and better) before/after now that my nose cast is off! Tried to get my face pics as close in camera angle as possible for a fairer comparison.

(http://i60.tinypic.com/2l0tia.jpg)

And just to showcase my weight loss, here's a full body comparison:

4 months hormones, two weeks post FFS, laser hair removal done, 60 pound weight loss.

Yeah Zoe! ID Before/Afters warm my heart for some reason. And your license ID is actually good! Mine is terrible, haha. Congrats!

Hayley, at a glance, I legitimately thought your before was you trying to pass as male, and added the facial hair with either makeup or photoshop. Awesome starting point, and your "current" is astounding! You're beautiful!

So, I already posted this in "fabulous," but was kinda excited seeing this pic against an old one. So here's my contribution; before is shortly before I last cut my own hair, a little over 2 years ago. And then this morning, after cutting my hair last night for the first time since!

Yeah Zoe! ID Before/Afters warm my heart for some reason. And your license ID is actually good! Mine is terrible, haha. Congrats!

Hayley, at a glance, I legitimately thought your before was you trying to pass as male, and added the facial hair with either makeup or photoshop. Awesome starting point, and your "current" is astounding! You're beautiful!

So, I already posted this in "fabulous," but was kinda excited seeing this pic against an old one. So here's my contribution; before is shortly before I last cut my own hair, a little over 2 years ago. And then this morning, after cutting my hair last night for the first time since!

Hi lovelies

It's been a ages since I've posted updated pics... so here you go :)

I've got another round of FFS in Feb, hopefully that will finish things off!

Livvy your looking exquisite!, very pretty. I too don't see any need for any more FFS, however you do what makes you feel great about yourself. For in the end it is your face.

My friends tell me I don't need any either but I feel I do, and I must follow my heart and do what I feel is best for me and makes me happy. I will however await my 2 year anniversary on hormones before making a final decision on which parts of my face need attention. Although now I can pretty much count on needing Rino  as my face is too small for my nose, lol.

Thank Allyda & Paige so much! :)

It's not major major FFS next Feb... Just nose tip retouch to give it the cute upturned pointy little manga style I love, a slight chin retouch, a fair bit of jaw chiseling (I wish I'd included my jaw originally) and hairline transplant.   

My surgeons are accusing me of stepping over the line from feminisation into female vanity (meh)... But as you said Allyda, you have to do what makes you happy!  This has to be it now though... my bod is tired from so many procedures! Facial fem retouches, GRS and VFS all within a couple of months of each other this year, really takes it out of you!  So the next FFS round is definitely it... Then I going to look forward to a holiday with no surgery, I'm thinking the Maldives! :)

It's hard to tell any progress with the dramatic angle in the after photo and since you already looked rather fem in your before it's just hard to see the changes. You look lovely though and 80 days is a very small time to see any major changes to the face. Which are all mainly soft tissue changes. A bit more time and some other angle and we will all be talking about how amazing your transition has been.

And this picture was taken today - 9.5 months AFTER starting HRT. It's really hard to notice any changes in your face until you look at old photos. omg omg omg omg omg. I really want chin reduction surgery though. My chin is my biggest insecurity, to be honest.

Okay, it's been awhile since I was last here but I figure this is as good a place as any to jump back into things.  This is actually my favorite thread, to be honest.  The transition process is almost magical, is it not?

So, I have been on HRT for appx. 5 months now.  There have been some substantial changes...substantial enough to be asked on a date once or twice this last week.   ;)

I like to show extremes, so here's a picture of me taken not even 4-5 days ago as a "female" and about 4 years ago of me as a "male".  My camera sucks so the quality is so-so...but for the first time, I didn't have to use fancy lighting, heavy makeup, or camera angles to get a "passing" picture of me, which feels good.  The "female"pic was taken of me around Halloween time:

Title: Re: The All New 'Before & After Topic (v 3.0)
Post by: April Lee on November 02, 2014, 01:29:42 pm
The “before” picture has been shown here, previously. It was taken about 7 years ago when I weighed about 90 pounds more than I do now. The “after” picture was taken this morning at about 4:30am. That was after a disastrous night of clubbing, where I had my keys stolen. That story has been told in another thread, so I will skip the details here, but it sets up a logistical nightmare for me over the next several days. That was added on top of a whole host of other issues I need to deal with the next several weeks because of my imploding marriage. I am about as stressed as I can be right now.

Yet when I look at this morning’s picture of me I see something I really like. When I started HRT, I wasn’t thoroughly convinced I wanted to transition. I wanted to try it on for size first. I had this crazy notion that if I was going to become a woman, I wanted to be the kewless 60 year old chick ever, and I wasn’t even thinking about my chromosome makeup at all in that context. Of course, there was another part of me that thought that was utterly ridiculous.

Well, something happened along the way that actually sort of stunned me. The more I pursued that vision of myself, the more it became ok in my mind to pursue it. It was ok to be my authentic self, even if nobody else agrees.

In the after picture, I am actually looking at my image on the monitor. And what I see on my face is utter satisfaction with who I am. I am comfortable in my skin for the very first time in my life, and it shows. I like this April; I wish I had let her out a few decades earlier.  Oh, what trouble we could have made, but even at almost 60, she is still pretty kewl. I am wearing her now, and she fits perfectly.

Nope.  Not a lick.  The most that has been done to my face is one session of laser hair removal..  I could grow a beard like  Eric the Red so I had to make sure that didn't happen hahaha. I have 5 more sessions already lined up.  I started HRT I want to say back in late June/early July-ish.

Shantel, Thank you so much. I think one of the most beautiful aspects of losing all that weight is that a lot of the aches and pains have gone away. I used to struggle with my knees and my back. I hardly notice them at all any more. I have also regained a huge portion of my flexibility, and that has allowed me to take up the dancing that has become such a large portion of my new life.

Good for you hon! Nothing worse than being so overweight that you blow all the wind out of your lungs just bending down tying your shoestrings. Been there and have fought that, I hate it when I used to faint from oxygen deprivation.  :D :laugh: Just exaggerating a bit there.  ;D

Well the before pic was taken in Bougainvile (a small politically unstable island near Papua New Guinea), the white guy in the pic is me lol. I had really had a rough previous few days in the jungle there.. this was in march 2014. The 'after' is about two days old (November 2014). I find the change rather mind blowing personally. Also I don't have anyone to take a full body pic right now, but just trust me when I say I have lost a lot of weight and am a rather slender person now.. here goes..

Thanks :), I had a rather confusing moment when looking back through my photos a couple of days ago... When I saw the posted 'before pic', some part of my brain immediately said, 'damn, he's hot...' in a less than platonic way too :/ It left me feeling rather strange for a while.. (my attraction to men is pretty new by the way). Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Also, those islanders (the women) are actually amazing people, they run a guest house as a way of teaching other Bougainvillean women hospitality skills to help them eventually get jobs or run their own business. This is in an extremely misogynistic  country (there is no such thing as marital rape, approx. 60% girls have also been raped by the age of 16) with almost no education opportunities (especially for women), where there is almost no economy and almost no infrastructure due to severe little war 20 years ago where Papua (supported by Australia) came in and destroyed almost everything and massacred and raped tens of thousands of men women and children...
The Bougainvillean man in the picture was a commander in the Bougainvillean Resistance Army who fought the Papuans 20 years ago, and is a very astute person.

Also, those islanders (the women) are actually amazing people, they run a guest house as a way of teaching other Bougainvillean women hospitality skills to help them eventually get jobs or run their own business. This is in an extremely misogynistic  country (there is no such thing as marital rape, approx. 60% girls have also been raped by the age of 16) with almost no education opportunities (especially for women), where there is almost no economy and almost no infrastructure due to severe little war 20 years ago where Papua (supported by Australia) came in and destroyed almost everything and massacred and raped tens of thousands of men women and children...
The Bougainvillean man in the picture was a commander in the Bougainvillean Resistance Army who fought the Papuans 20 years ago, and is a very astute person.

Thanks for the brief recent history, very interesting and something I hadn't known about. Bougainville was shredded during WWII and that's all I had ever heard of the place. You must be an Aussie, I'd love to see such places! So far my only big adventure was in Vietnam during that war, the 1st RAR was attached to our unit back then, I developed a fondness for Aussie Beer.

Love Kiwis too, Christmas of 1966 a Maori fellow shared a few shots of Christmas cheer with me in the Vo Dat Valley in the then Republic of South Vietnam, it was a memorable occasion for two lonely people far from home, hearth and loved ones.

Anyway getting the thread back on subject, you do indeed look amazing miss and it's been a pleasure being here with you!

Well I have a before, I'm not really in the after stage yet though.. kind of the during/whatever stage that I am now lol..

Well the before pic was taken in Bougainvile (a small politically unstable island near Papua New Guinea), the white guy in the pic is me lol. I had really had a rough previous few days in the jungle there.. this was in march 2014. The 'after' is about two days old (November 2014). I find the change rather mind blowing personally. Also I don't have anyone to take a full body pic right now, but just trust me when I say I have lost a lot of weight and am a rather slender person now.. here goes..


Before:

Jesus H. Christ!!!  Claire (my mothers name too, and a beautiful one at that), I'd have never imagined that you'd looked like that before.  Good looking guy, but guy indeed; you look totally different in every way!!!  You clearly lost some muscle, I'm hoping that happens to me and I noticed a couple hand veins in your before picture.  Not as bad as mine I'd say, but did they tend to bulge  easily before?  Has HRT help make them less prominent?  Even if not, don't worry, yours aren't near as bad as mine from the look of it.  They really aren't bad at all, just curious.

Thanks :) Lol, that seriously cracked me up. I had totally forgotten what I looked like, that photo gave me a bit of fright when I rediscovered it, I must admit. Yes I did lose rather a lot of muscle, there wasn't that much fat on me, but it wet away rather quickly for some reason, I would say it was mostly gone within the first 6 weeks, I kept to a very restrictive diet though which helped I think. I'm still slightly more toned than I would like, but it will just take a bit more time.. Hand veins, well it was super hot and humid there (right in the tropics) and we had been walking a lot that day, so that's about as bad as my hand veins have ever been lol. I'm actually not a very veiny person generally, but HRT has definitely reduced potential vein-iness.. I'm definitely quite hard to get an IV line into these days... so HRT definitely helps a lot. I have much nicer hands now too, they look a lot smaller and more slender (muscle loss again I think), and they have that nice clear-whitish transparency going on most of the time, unless I get really hot, then they get a bit darker coloured which sucks. I'm still early in transition though so things should only keep improving a bit from here..
Well good luck with everything, and just remember, although ymmv, I've found HRT to be pretty darn amazing, especially if you back it up with good things like diet and exercise :)
Thank, I love the name Claire too :) (obviously lol) I had some other ideas but eventually you work out that sort of female person you are and you kinda know what names work and which don't work for you, and most people seem to agree that I'm a Claire :p
Take care :)

And this picture was taken today - 9.5 months AFTER starting HRT. It's really hard to notice any changes in your face until you look at old photos. omg omg omg omg omg. I really want chin reduction surgery though. My chin is my biggest insecurity, to be honest.

Lol, I always thought that I looked horrible! I'll see what I can do though :p I'm not sure if this sounds weird, but I do miss that guy sometimes, despite the fundamental flaws, he just tried so hard and had so many amazing skills and strengths. I kind of wish there was a way that we could have both existed separately, like we could have split into two people and that maybe he could have carried on; repaired, complete and happy; and that I could also finally live my very different life after being trapped for so long... I'm so happy as I am now :) But I feel like I've lost someone sometimes... does that sound totally insane?

Thanks :) I can hardly believe haw fast all this has happened... I can't wait for my hair to grow out though! You look really pretty too by the way :)

Aw :) thank you for the compliment!
When I look back and remember some good stuff i've done or been through in the past I do miss those things and times. But we're essentially the same people we were, we just hid and suppressed our feelings and ourselves, so I don't really feel like I lost someone, but I do look back at those good things with fondness :)
Omg, transitioning is so crazy! You don't really realize the changes until you look at a picture of you before transitioning, then 4 months in, then a year in... then you realize how fast and how much things have changed.
I grew my hair out while I still presented as a boy, but extensions are a great help until your natural hair gets there haha as soon as it's long enough you could get some clip in extensions if you want length faster :D I have some, but by the time I went FT my hair was a bit past my collar bone and I didn't need to wear them... still I sometimes use 1 or 2 pieces for volume lol

You've changed the way you hold your resting facial expression. Your bottom lip is out showing off your piercing and your eyes are more open and attentive. Also your posture is less male. It's still boyish but your shoulders are slung in a position that suggests youth. And overall you look younger which is where I was wondering when the changes would start as well. Now it's like I have all new skin and my face is more full and round.

It will catch up so be patient. There should be many more awesome changes in your future. And you're getting to be a fair bit cuter too ;)

And this picture was taken today - 9.5 months AFTER starting HRT. It's really hard to notice any changes in your face until you look at old photos. omg omg omg omg omg. I really want chin reduction surgery though. My chin is my biggest insecurity, to be honest.

It's quite common that we always dislike what we see and don't see any significant changes when there really are and others find it amazing how much we have changed. I look in the mirror and always see my dad's face looking back, I even got an upper blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) and neck lift surgery to change the family characteristics and I still see him looking back...... .Faaaak!

hun, only 800 calories...... you should consider raising that up a little.  we need calories to function, so 800 just isn't enough to provide the energy you need. Im sorry if I sound preachy. Its your body you can do what you want with it. Just 800 calories is close to starving eat up!

you really do look fantastic though...

800 is fine with me. 400 for lunch and 400 for dinner. I don't feel tired or lethargic. I see a doctor every few months. I get blood test every three. My health is fine and I have no complications. If it was adversely effecting my overall health I would fix it. But it's not so I'm happy with my diet.

ok I was just worried because that is like 1 of my 3 meals and I am still losing weight.... Its all about how healthy you are and what makes you happy. so if you are satisfied and healthy with 800 calories then do your thing.

I stuggle to get past 1200 calories each day so, uh... 800 seems like it's pretty foolhardy. I'm 105lbs this week and I'm trying to eat enough to gain.

I'm trying to lose weight. I am healthy and eating a enough to get thru the day. I am going to get to my goal weight and this is the best way for me to do it. I don't think there's an issue. I've been doing this for over a year if I wasn't healthy my doctor would've told me to change my diet.

On a related note, when I lost a bunch of extra weight over the years, I never paid attention to calories, just carbs. I cut out as much bread/pasta/sugar as possible. Lately I have hit a plateau though. My metabolism has gone down the drain for some reason.

On a related note, when I lost a bunch of extra weight over the years, I never paid attention to calories, just carbs. I cut out as much bread/pasta/sugar as possible. Lately I have hit a plateau though. My metabolism has gone down the drain for some reason.
Your body plateau's for a few reasons but the main one's are that, now that your smaller your body requires less calories per day to maintain weight, and of course, your metabolism slows down placing your body in "starvation mode."

If yours is caused soley by the former the plateau will be easier to break. Just eat fewer calories maintaining a good physical activity level. However from your description yours sounds like it might be the latter, or a combination of both, which makes the plateau a lil harder to break.

What works for me, and this may sound counterproductive, is I have to actually increase caloric intake slightly while also increasing physical activity a little to make up for the extra calories. In addition, keep the caloric intake varying on a day to day basis. Mix things up a little by switching the order of your daily routine and or physical activity. You should start losing again after doing this for about a week.

It should be noted tho that I've never been seriously overweight. With me it's those troublesome 20 to 30 pounds put on due to age and hating myself. During this last round I actually lost most of my targeted weight while on hrt, but I plateau'ed around 10 lb's shy of my goal of 105-7 lb's. I have recently before getting sick with the Flu, broke that plateau using the method described above.

I hope this helps. :icon_wink:

I had my FFS with Dr. Spiegel on November 4th.  I am very excited with the results.  I have lots of swelling, but bruising was very minimal.  So here is day 12 post FFS.
(https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/HabnVg5-5cQWlI6kbYcdDjhI-WpBapcVTRJLxBAxZy0=w310-h414-p-no)

I am very excited on how the results will finally turn out after the swelling is gone.  My jawline will probably take 3months until the visible swelling is gone and the nose will take a year.  Dr. Spiegel is an amazing surgeon!!

I officially return to work Monday as Stacy!!  Everyone at my work has been so supportive during my recovery.  I look so forward to work tomorrow and tackling the new challenges in my transition.

LOL!  I went in for my FFS without high expectations, as I was nervous I would be let down.  Dr. Spiegel is amazing!

Yesterday, I went to go buy some new boots for this winter.  I was having a long conversation with the woman who was assisting me.  Anyway, she asked where I worked and what I did for a living.  I gave her a little bit of my work history as I work in operation support, but I did start as a truck driver.  She was surprised as she asked, 'are there many woman truck drivers out there?'  She never even considered I was trans.  My passing confidence is so much higher now as well as how I see myself in the mirror.

Oh jeez, I get to follow all you bombshells, I should know better. But, after one year, it is important for me to share my progress. Transition takes a lot of effort. Hormones do not do everything.

More important to me than the transition progress, I hope these photos can show someone that you CAN transition and keep living your life as normal. You can have fun. You can meet new people. Life as you know it does not have to stop when transition begins. If this 38 year old can get results, so can you.

I try to pick the selfies with the same type of a Mona Lisa smile, so you can compare. I do smile. I promise. I look like I am catching flies but I am happy when I do it.

My parents took photos of me right before I left for my 20th High School Reunion. This was my fave of the lot, even though I was standing like a linebacker. Come on girl, you can do better!

Last night. One year on HRT and four laser sessions into transition. Not my best pic ever but it marks a special occasion.

What works for me, and this may sound counterproductive, is I have to actually increase caloric intake slightly while also increasing physical activity a little to make up for the extra calories. In addition, keep the caloric intake varying on a day to day basis. Mix things up a little by switching the order of your daily routine and or physical activity. You should start losing again after doing this for about a week.

I think I'm going to have to try to eat a little more carbs/calories because I'm stuck in a vicious circle of being tired and not being able to excercise enough. Thanks for the advice!  ;D

I had my FFS with Dr. Spiegel on November 4th.  I am very excited with the results.  I have lots of swelling, but bruising was very minimal.  So here is day 12 post FFS.

I am very excited on how the results will finally turn out after the swelling is gone.  My jawline will probably take 3months until the visible swelling is gone and the nose will take a year.  Dr. Spiegel is an amazing surgeon!!

I officially return to work Monday as Stacy!!  Everyone at my work has been so supportive during my recovery.  I look so forward to work tomorrow and tackling the new challenges in my transition.

Just a case of showing what's possible here...

Here's a few pictures from pre-transition... a front view taken from a video still, as well as a side view from that same video just so you can see the sheer degree of maleness that we're talking about here that I had to overcome. I was in deep at the beginning of transition, and genuinely believed that I would NEVER pass because I was just too masculine. The third picture, which is what my face looked like close-up, is meant to be a comparison to the close-up at the end, and yeah... needless to say, miracles really can happen sometimes. The impossible definitely happened for me.

(http://oi60.tinypic.com/2luwh1i.jpg)

And, well, here's my "after" pictures. The first one is a still photo from my most recent vlog, which is a very fair comparison since the first "before" picture was from a vlog too. It's my default appearance, since I tend to wear my hair in a ponytail.

The second "after" picture, I just took less than an hour ago. And, well, again, this is supposed to show people what's possible after 22 months of HRT. In both of these pictures, no makeup, no nothing, and I haven't had any FFS, this is just what hormones and weight loss did for me.

I'll openly admit, there is a SERIOUS disconnect for me when looking at my old pictures. I seriously don't even recognize that guy anymore.

Omg you're such a hottie.

I was talking with Dr. Spiegel the week before last, but it's so expensive just to have my nose straightened. Like... just too much.

Gosh you're so cute though x3.

Well, I had a conversation with my mother yesterday and every time I try to bring up TS issues and suggest that she might be in some state of denial, she keeps replying that I am delusional and I have not really changed apart of having longer hair, plucked eyebrows and fat butt. She keeps insisting that I do not have delicate features or frame (which to some extent is true, but I have decided to launch intense cardio for next months and really cut down calories to prove her that she is wrong). Needless to say, those kind of conversations are not very supportive and thoughts tend to sink in (except, she cannot explain why people quite often gender or treat me as female if it is just eyebrows and butt....).
I found really old picture of me which was made about 15 years ago when I was in quite good physical shape
(http://i.imgur.com/c49eXOT.jpg)

This is 4 years ago (I guess..) and slightly buffed up with some extra weight
(http://i.imgur.com/Ul4LxWx.jpg)

And just a couple of days ago - not happy about my waistline but it can be fixed :D

I think there are some changes, despite what my mother might think.

Post by: Sheila Grace on November 17, 2014, 08:42:07 pm
Well, here is my transition thus far and even though I've come a long way, I am convinced that the best is yet to come.

I've been working on the weight loss for over to 3 years, in transition for 2½ years with 1½ years on Susan's and about that long on HRT.

Here is my unaltered picture and then an approximation of what FFS would do for me.  I used the approximation as my avatar for almost a year while I worked on getting insurance to pay for the FFS. 

Just a few days prior to leaving for FFS.  My life had unraveled.  The delay for FFS caused severe dysphoria.  My marriage was blowing up.  I couldn't sleep.  Very hard time.

This is me a couple days post FFS  with Dr Z in a full head pressure cast.  The nurse was super, Cole was super everyone was super.  It made a hard time much easier.  I smiled though the pain knowing it was right.

A few days ago at work.  I'm down 164 lbs and I'm Jennifer, I'm me, I'm happy.  Although, I'm still dieting with another 20-30 to go!  I'll make it....

It's never to late for anyone to be themselves.

HUGS!!!!

Jen

P.S  I also got insurance to pay for FFS AND GRS is now covered at 100%.  If anyone wants help with insurance, I'm here and I'll help.
_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

Jen- I am new to the forum, but your pictures documenting your amazing transition are so very, very helpful to me. Seeing how beautifully you have walked down that dark road is just so affirming and positive. This helps me at so many levels. Thank you for sharing that sequence. I will not forget it. Blessings, Sheila Grace

Post by: Sammy on November 18, 2014, 01:48:31 am
Tori, Releca, stephaniec, Ally - thank You :). I think that there have been changes too and the issue might be cause I do see my mother once every week or two weeks and she has adjusted her mental picture of me to my present looks. So she thinks, I was always like that. Sure, I do have bad angles and used to have before and therefore my passing is like 70/30, but I am intending to have some minor surgeries in future to which she does not object btw. It is rather that feeling that she thinks I am not worthy and still treats me like her son in most aspects. Anyway, I hope there are some more physical changes coming soon (not from HRT, but rather weight redistribution).

And btw, Crissy, in Your first pic, You would have been able to pass with longer hair and some makeup - You definitely have the features which are complimented by the HRT :).

I was doing some photography/self-portraits this weekend and saw one image was like a recreation of a picture I made about three years ago. Funny is that on the first picture I see a guy clearly, another a woman, also clearly. Even so.. I am not on HRT yet so there cannot be any significant changes.

I guess the small things do it o.o.

That's a wig, but it's my natural hair color and part and also almost the exact same hairstyle my mom once had in the past, so it should be extremely close once mine is finished growing out. My mom was also extremely spooked how much I looked like her, in the future when I come back for the holidays i'd say claiming to be a distant cousin is probably out lol.  :-X

Still stuck in mostly dude mode until I finish up some business and clear out in January, but I feel a lot better about how things will turn out now.

Unfortunately it will be awhile.  I got some nasty shadow to get rid of first and then hopefully start hormones in another 7 months or so.  Me and my wife think it will turn out well as I am lucky to pretty much already have a woman's body minus the boobs.  Pretty much the worst of it is the fact that I have thick face hair and I'm already in my mid 30s, but I am super tiny and still only look like I'm 25ish.

What can I expect hormones will do to my face?  I think all I need are some cheeks.

Wow, there's some great before and after's in this topic. Since it's my six month anniversary I suppose it'd be a good time for me to do a mini timeline... I just wish I had a better camera and I'd done my hair properly today... aww, what the hell! BRB :P

Mandatory six month HRT anniversary timeline post incoming!

That's me with the Legos. Why start the timeline with such an early pic? Because that's around the time in my life when I started to wonder if maybe I was actually a girl. It'd be a long time before I found the courage to do anything about that though...

Mandatory six month HRT anniversary timeline post incoming!

...aaaaand skip to the end. Today! About a year since I decided to transition, 10 months since presenting as female in public and 6 months since starting HRT and going full-time. A woman at the grocery store kept misgendering me repeatedly and loudly while her co-workers laughed today which was quite humiliating so I guess I still have a long way to go. That did tarnish my six month anniversary experience a bit but overall I think I'm making okay progress so far. Right? :-\

You look great Jessica.  As for the woman in the store, I've never understood how mean some people can be to total strangers.   Perhaps she's jealous of how good you look?

I found a particularly bad photo from either early in my transition or before. I can't remember the date on this photo.

Taken with a DSLR but the lighting isn't that fantastic.

This one is from about a week or two after I started hormones while laying in bed.

Taken about two or three days ago to show the way my facial hair has become extremely light colored and nearly unnoticeable after shaving.

These were all taken yesterday. That's about 3.8 months into hormone therapy.

Guess it's time for a little before and after of my own.


This is probably about 3 weeks after I started electrolysis and 8 months pre-HRT:

Male Mode then:                                         Female Mode then:
(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-Ue0L6zARGr4/VHa_eSVj9rI/AAAAAAAAA4c/utY-n0WeyCU/w600-h800-no/Before2.JPG)                 (https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-b9lI_8IQoM0/VHa_eUWR8AI/AAAAAAAAA4c/ODvLhz7ZZ4w/w649-h865-no/IMG_0423.JPG)


And then these are only a couple weeks old, so still pretty current. I picked them since they are similar to the other two. I was 8 months on HRT in these:

Male Mode now:                                          Female Mode now:

Might be completely silly of me but I always get a bit nervous looking at such pictures.. like.. I see great changes, really. I do not think you look androgynous but, well, maybe a little but leaning to feminine.
Why I tend to get nervous looking at such before and afters is because you clearly see a change.. but you can't point them out. It is simply the feminine version of the earlier pictures. Which is great :D! But, well, HRT sure does things. Maybe I just feel nervous soon starting myself. Never-mind my rambling xD.

two years on HRT 1 year full time... I decided to ease into my femininity a bit at a time.. I did not really comprehend how dysphoric I was. I thought being androgynous would help... it turned out to be full fledged woman hood with a need for GRS. Considering when I started HRT I think I really did get a lot from it :). I now have an ass!!! I suffered from plummer butt as a guy lol and I am sitting at a pretty solid c cup.. thinking I might wind up with small d's

Eevee, you might not see the changes, but I can.  Subtle, but the lower picture is definitely far more feminine than the upper.  Could be the little things like the t-shirt (male vs. female) or the way you've brushed your hair, but those tiny visual cues add up to people seeing you as female instead of male.

Great progress, in other words!

I will be 51 is three weeks. I was worried when I started, but in the last decade, saw so many others blazing the path. Amazing to see, now,  that there is a path. Back in the early 60's there was only rumors of a land in Northern Europe where there might be a healer. That journey was full of jungles and blood. Particularly for an eight year old.

Danielle, you're absolutely stunning.  A masterclass in what a dignified, classy transition can look like for us older girls.  Screw the whole "gotta start when you're twenty or you'll be mannish forever" myth; you blow that out of the water.

Seeing yourself like that, especially considering the "before", must be crazy.  When you were younger - the wistful guy standing against the tree, for example (and surely there's a story behind that picture if you'd care to tell it) - did you ever dream you'd be the girl in the white dress looking nothing short of 100% feminine and 100% beautiful?

I have not learned how to quote previous posts. Also, I think I do not yet have all privileges that most members have for posting. And I am trying to make my photo sizes more reasonable. Sorry for clogging the forum. Please forgive my clunky formatting. . . 

Lavistaa, amber roskamp, Kaydee, thank, you!

Stephaniec, you work so hard on this site! Thank you. So inspirational. 

missymay, you are elegant. That chin... those cheekbones.  Really beautiful. Then I read a post you wrote, in the past, about "not passing" and all I could think was... huh? Really?

Brenda, what a lovely affirming post. Thank you so much. I would like to take the time to write, with much more detail, what I was thinking when I was younger. I will eventually… a short version is that my biggest thought was probably fear. How will I ever meet someone who will love a freak like me? Also, a big thought was… Am I mentally ill? Also… what is the cure?

I assumed all guys felt like they were women to some degree. I just assumed all other guys were much better at dealing with it. I thought all guys hated their penis and testosterone. I know this will sound silly today. It really was not until the mid-1990’s and the internet and the sun slowly started to emerge. Hey! Wait a minute. What, maybe I am not a sicko?

But back in the 70’s the only books I could find in the library, that seemed to describe my condition, were abnormal psychology books. And the chapter that was closest to labeling me was right next to the chapter on pedophilia, paraphilia and fetishes. I learned quickly, this is not something to tell anyone! When I was younger, I was like a root bound plant. Completely compressed in my pot.

katiej, the dress is Yigal Azrouel. It is called a techno jacquard dress. The color is: Bone. Thank you so much for noticing, you have excellent taste! :-) I bought it over two years ago (on sale) and the photo you see is the first time I finally wore it. I simply was tired of waiting for the right event or excuse. I thought, "Hey, it’s Christmas! Good enough." Also, I guess, I am gaining confidence. I’m kind of at the point where even if somebody does clock me I’m hoping they’ll think something like… “Hmmm, is that a transsexual? Well, looks like they made the right decision.” But, I like to think that people aren’t thinking that way.
 
So I wore my fancy dress to visit my dermatologist, then to pick up my mail and to the car repair shop. I literally just ran errands in it. The shoes are also over two years old but this was the first time I had worn those as well. I did not intend for them to go together... but they seemed so perfect... when I pulled it all together. I wanted to wear nude pumps... but practicality won. The dress is super comfy as are the shoes... so it is dressy, but yet - easy.

 The photos with this post, which I took tonight after a short “girl’s night out” (and three glasses of wine,) are of a Wolford dress. Similar theory of styling as the one from two days ago. Comfy and easy… but, well…a touch sexy. This black dress has an entirely different attitude: punk + risqué... Keep in mind this is for a 50+ year old.  So my punk is not my daughter’s punk. Both dresses are a little body-con. But, thanks to the texture (ruching is my friend,) length and sleeves... the sex gets toned down. Also... wearing flats keeps it real. I love heels, but not tonight.

As a note, what I learned tonight, which is very reassuring, is that older men do seem to like me. I am not used to that at all yet, not at all. Men can be very aggressive and smart. Surprise. I do fear my voice and other remnants of 49 years of “acting male” still waft around me like a cloud. I hope to continue to gain more assurance and will probably fly to Korea to have VFS. But, more importantly, how do I get those men a little younger? (Actually, I put myself in the lesbian camp. But everyone tells me to keep an open mind. Good advice at this stage.)

Kind regards, Dani

Absolutely LOVE this photo!  It's one thing to take a good female selfie after hours of prepping and hours of sifting through hundreds of photos afterwards for the perfect picture.  It's a whole nother thing to be caught looking cute as a button in a random moment and come across as 100% unquestionably female.

The nude flats dress it down but still keep it classy in classic monochromatic kind of way.  You could also wear it with a cardigan for running errands.

Your fortunate to have the hips to pull it off. I mostly stick to shift dresses these days and tend to shy away from the sheath or bodycon styles.

Thank you all so much. I knew you would all be kind and accepting and you have exceeded my expectations. I have included another photo here one month before I turned 47. I had completed Laser Hair removal by that age. But my public transition would not start for at least another two years.

If anyone has any specific questions about my transition, please ask, nothing is too personal (I do not think anyhow... we'll see.) I certainly will not be offended by any question.

I realize every situation has uniqueness. However, I think that there are many consistent stops on what is becoming a pretty clear path to a successful transition. Particularly when it comes to appearance. To me this was a critical part of my transition. However, I do think it has become less essential and will continue to become less important. I am sensing a shift in some areas of society that being clearly transgender, physically, is being celebrated. These are just pockets - but they are growing.  We are moving in the right direction.

I went to a drag show last night. Unbelievably, it is the first I have ever attended! If you can’t wear heels to a drag show, where can you wear them? So, here two photos from last night. I am sorry they are so dark. I included the pre-transition photo to stay in keeping with the theme of this thread. Also, I included a photo with better lighting that for some reason two of my friends just love. I do not care for it… at all. I think my hair is a mess and my expression is very goofy. I include it because they love it and because it is a photo I would not normally share. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone and will try to get a photo up of me in no makeup at all even it is just a bathroom selfie. I do not wear a ton of make-up but I do love lipstick and mascara. I am still coming to grips with the idea of playing up only the lips OR the eyes. Not both! I am not averse to breaking rules. In fact I like it. But, I need to master the existing rules before I break them.

Kind regards, Danielle

Fyi... I think this will be the last photos I will post to this thread and I expect I will take down my  photos in the next week or so. I will probably post photos in the future but they should probably go under a different subject thread. (I will still try to do one without makeup.) I was wondering if I could get comfortable having my "before" photos up. I cannot seem to beat that discomfort right now. Every time I log in and see them, I still seem to get a little queasy. So, given the thread subject, if I take down the "before" I should also probably take down the "after".

Zoe! You are so fun! Your refreshing energy comes through your words. Are you hinting you have a "D" cup from HRT after such a short period? That is amazing. I am so jealous. I am lucky to have nearly a "b" after two years (is that an A+?) The Christmas recipe for the "c" cups in my photos? "To one cup flesh add two cups padding".

I hope to purchase something more luxurious... someday. Who knew salt water could be so extravagant?

Love your smile and the lipstick in photo 2.

Thank you so much for the kind words everyone! You're all gorgeous and wonderful! You inspire me so much! I hope that the holidays bring you each your individual happinesses, whatever they may be! Here are two more real good pics that really show how much I've changed and yes. I've gone from 175 lbs muscle to 125 lbs with 34D cup breasts in 10 months... Well closer to 8.5 months when I had to go up to the 34D bra... So yeah...you'll get wherever you're meant to be is my motto! :)

I may not leave this photos up, but I will start participating more in this forum. Thank you all for being a resource and inspiration.

Kind Regard,

As a slightly older transitioner than you, I can't tell you how inspirational those pictures are to me. Now I can tell myself, see, it IS possible! Thank  you so, so much for posting!

Awww, Carlita, you are so sweet. It is possible. Please also look for some photos of my "worst" as well. I think those are important to have a clear vision that it is not all glamor. Also, as a disclosure, it has been harder than I expected. But absolutely, for me, it has been worth it. No doubt. Finally, after two years, I am sure I am still in "transition" the tail end I would say with some confidence (I hope) but I do think it is a lifelong journey. Speaking specifically, to appearance, not emotion, I think I am 90% there. My voice needs work. I am not happy with my hairline. As long as I can afford it, I will probably get light doses of fillers and botox for years to come. But I not think that is a Trans issue. Kind regards, Dani

Hi, I have posted photos to the forum:

The official "You look fabulous, darling!" 6.0

If I can, I am going to remove my photos from this thread. It has always bothered me when people took down their photos. But I am going to be that person. It is my "before" photos that really bother me. So sorry.

Hi everyone how are you? Hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season! I know I am! :) so I've been on hormones for 10 months and one day! How crazy is that? Anyways just wanted to show some progress pictures. Also: has anyone else developed to a D cup after such a short period of time? Is this common or should I be worried?

You have my girlfriend's style, and you look a lot like her too!

I don't think you should be worried about the D cup. But I'll be jealous!

I think you're very close to passing already. Most people say wait until about the 6th or 8th month to see any certain changes, and it's about 2 years before the full effect takes place. Just be patient, you'll get there :)

Don't be so hard on yourself.  To begin with, you're light years ahead of most of us - I'd kill for an end result like your five month result!

My suggestion: be more aggressive with your makeup.  You have delicate features, light hair, fair skin.  You could go far bolder with your colors to really make your eyes and lips stand out.  Your look right now is very natural, and good, committed makeup can generally turn even the most masculine of us into something pretty cute.

Skeptoid, I was going to say hair and makeup as well.  With a more feminine hairstyle and some tasteful makeup (light eyeshadow, mascara, and some lip color), I think you'd look really cute.  I haven't seen you from the neck down, but you look pretty good to me.  :)

As for my body, I've been asked if I'm intersex because of my hips. The right dress is really flattering on my body I think so I don't worry a ton about my figure. (Except for my shoulders and knobby knees/elbows, and veins!) Overally though, I'm pretty well okay with my body despite minor nitpicks. It's my face that causes me the anxiety.

This photo is about a year old, well before I started hormones. The second one is also pre hormones, hence the lack of breasts.

You and I share hips. I have the same thing and I know I'm intersex. I hate my veins too and hope they get less prominent with more time on HRT.

You've come a long way in 14 months Stephanie, your looking really good. I think you picked it too though, but what would make you look even more beautiful is a smile  :)

When I first came onto this board you had the avatar pic up with the grey hoodie.  I vaguely remember, 'note to self, may not be a good idea to get some of these ladies mad'.....did not take long though to find there are soft centers in you all  :).   Keep the smiles coming, you wear them well.   Dani

Hello! Nice to meet you my name is Alex, im 32 years old and an artist and live in Cambridge England. Because of this amazing thread, and Emma B's inspiring video, and many other brilliant videos on youtube, I finally decided to take the plunge!
So not much of a before and after (yet!) more of a before before and a before! See what you think!
As you can see I have a face like optimus prime in drag, or if you somehow combined Mary Poppins and Dick Van Dyck into a single horrifying person.. and I dont care :)
I feel very excited and happy and proud for.. the first time ever! I dont really care too much about coming out, my family seem pretty much fine with whatever I do so long as Im happy and not making anyone else unhappy, and the friends Ive told have been super nice so.. who cares what anyone else thinks? I actually think I have it easy because all you brave girls did it already and paved the way.
Im going to see my doctor next week and apply to begin proceedings. I just got a great job so Im going to save up for some FFS and so on and start my life!
Im sure this will be a long tough road but compared to.. before, which was horrible, i think itll be a breeze,


If anyone is thinking about going for it, but is nervous, or worried theyre too tall (im 6.2) to manly (check out my chin!) or just feeling trapped or lonely (i know that one!) or anything like that well, me too, but email me and maybe I can help!
x alex!

Ps sorry for my rubbish laptop camera/phone pics, Ive asked my friend to help make me pretty and take some better ones when she comes back from holiday
Here goes!
Before before (very sad)

Oh, here is some of my art if you would like to see (not just a bony face!) https://aj-brady.squarespace.com/home/
And again, if you need someone to talk to, well, as you can see I dont know much but maybe I can help, so hit me up.
x Alex

Alex, you appear so much happier now that you've decided to do something about how you feel.  Your most recent photos look somewhat feminine already; you have great hair, big eyes and high brows - three things I'd literally kill for!

Let us know how the appointment with the doctor goes.  I'm sure it'll be a very positive experience, but please follow up and post details.

Glad to have you here.

(Wonderful artwork, by the way. :))

Almost 20 months on HRT and time for little overview (some people still claim that I have not changed - I guess, they are not really correct in that matter).
About 13 years ago
 (http://i.imgur.com/c49eXOT.jpg)

Five years ago
(http://i.imgur.com/SNoVSNC.jpg)

Starting HRT (ugh, I was quite desperate when I took this pic and uploaded it on Susan's shortly afterwards)
(http://i.imgur.com/w7vaDJw.jpg)

8 months on HRT - the changes started to kick in
(http://i.imgur.com/mYNLqv8.jpg)

16 months on HRT
(http://i.imgur.com/ucEwyoo.jpg)

Last year, last week :)
  (http://i.imgur.com/3upCXQD.jpg)

I am still changing every other month - it took quite a long time, but it by far exceeded any expectations which I had in the beginning for someone being almost 37 y.o.

Emily,

You look amazing. Love that winter outfit you've got in that pic. The hat is adorable. Being in currently cold Ontario, Canada, I can appreciate your winter attire.

Also inspiring that you are about the same age as me. Gives me hope for the future seeing you late bloomers have success. :)
Title: Re: The All New 'Before & After Topic (v 3.0)
Post by: katiej on January 07, 2015, 02:16:10 am
Emily, what sticks out to me is the fat redistribution in your cheeks.  Very feminizing. Yay!  :)
Title: Re: The All New 'Before & After Topic (v 3.0)
Post by: Sammy on January 07, 2015, 03:26:31 am
Thank You for Your kind words, everyone :)

Seras - I was not really that buff (or at least I always though that I was rather small for a guy) - could never get muscle mass on, only pure strength, but at least strength was enough for pushing 2-3 guys of my size around :D.

Stephanie - LOL :)

Ameliato - yep, I love those types of hats very much (I have three of them in different colours) and despite being unisex they look good and keep the head warm (the only drawback is they make hair fuzzy which sometimes is very annoying).

katiej - yeah, pretty much most of fat goes into cheeks (especially the lower pair of them...).
To be honest, because of age (or maybe family genetics) the breast growth is kinda symbolic - just an A cup in 20 months, barely visible in summertime and completely flat in winter attire. Having read about others' unbelievable experiences, A cup is kinda meh, but, hey, bewbs are bewbs - face and hips are just as important gender recognition-wise (at least I have developed a keen eye to spot flat-chested women in winter attire :D)

Btw, am I not mistaken to assume that this is the first time when You have posted pics of Yourself? Congrats on taking that step too - it takes a lot of bravety and guts for the first time ;)!

Even though it is too soon for much physical change as it has only been 6 months into hrt, for me it is the eyes.

First pic with blue tee, it was that not often window in which I could see that lifetime of pain.
Second pic with the hat, I use the three A's Aggression, Anger, and Arrogance to cover up.
Third pic with leather jacket was at 3 months hrt, smile is now natural.
Fourth pic is recent and I am really becoming happy.

Next.......well I will wait for the outside to catch up with the inside.   Dani

After: 1 month HRT, 208 lbs (so far!)

Wow.  Attention you have!  Your before pictures look so...sad!  And your current pics are such a night and day change - not so sad anymore.  I always find it interesting how the transition process wipes the misery and despair off our faces long before anything else, and how our internal feelings clearly affect how we look on the outside.

You're doing amazing!  At this rate, I'm predicting you'll be one of those "<I don't understand>?!!?!?!?! No way are you the same person!??!!??!?!?!" before and after transition pictures. ;)

Can't wait to see the end result!

Thank you! I have FFS scheduled in July with Dr. Z; I'm also losing about 2 lbs per week hoping to settle at about 160. Any additional surgeries will be determined from there, but so far, I'm happy with the look.

Wow, 6 months and you already look years younger!

Thanks, I feel so so much more alive as well, maybe I should not even say "so so much", because now that I can compare, I used to just feel dead.

So many of the ladies I see here like Carrie Liz and others, when I look at the after pic I think to myself "if I had never seen the before pic, or if I were anywhere else on the web, I would not give a second thought as to them not being female.  Reality for me is, if I should never attain this level of change, who cares, the inside of me is happy.

To Aus76....keep going, your doing fantastic!!!  It may not look like it but my weight started at 210 lbs and now I'm getting close to 150 lbs.  You can do it.  Dani

Dani, you have gone from "American badass" to "extremely beautiful woman".  The first pic is someone who looks like he could rip me to pieces.  The second pic is someone who looks absolutely charming.

Regardless of whether you think HRT hasn't changed you much (and I think it's changed you far more than you see - your skin is so much better, your cheeks are fuller, and your entire complexion is relaxed and happy), you're right about your eyes.  And the differences between the two pictures are incredible - you're literally a completely different person.

Your transition thus far has been inspirational and most impressive.  Once HRT has been given more time to work its magic, you'll be an even more extraordinary success story. :)

So So Sorry Brenda, I sometimes am not thinking when I delete from Photobucket that it deletes it here to!!  Your words mean ALOT.  Your very sweet words does a heart good.  I need to figure out a better method than Photobucket, or be more aware (ah, not sure about that one  ;D  Thanks,    Dani

Added Words:  The comfort given here I really do not have adequate expression for, all I can say is that guy wearing the hat, his heart died over 45 years ago, it turned cold, and held not one single tiny space for feeling.  The words I've recieved here has breathed life back into someone who has only caused a path of destruction.  Second reason for this add on is I want no one to make the mistake that the t-shirt emblem is connected to that old person, it played but one part in his demise.   Dani

Ps please don't run my pics through any facial recognition sites or anything, it's really not something I want to know.  ;)

You look great, it looks like hrt is softening your face already. It's hard to tell much else though because the after photos have a lot of perspective on them. I'd imagine you'd look good with darker hair though.

Dana, it's amazing how much of a difference 7 weeks has made.  But IMO the biggest feminizing factors are your hairstyle and especially the eyebrows.  So cute!  HRT is definitely going to be very kind to you.  :)

Thanks! I appreciate it! Yeah, I think my face generally looks softer. Facial hair removal, eyebrow shaping and hair DEFINITELY help :-P. I'm getting antsy about body changes though. Not much difference yet. Skin is softer for sure, and nipples are more sensitive, but no breast growth yet :-/. Trying to be patient. I know 7 weeks is nothing in the grand scheme.

The absolute earliest I've heard is noticeable breast growth in 3 months, but most say 6-12 months at least.

I started about the same time as you (Dec 2), and the only differences I've noticed are slowed growth of body/facial hair, and my pee smells different.  I've shared a bathroom with my wife for 15 years, so I know the difference.  And mine now smells like hers.  Yes it's gross...but it's progress.  So...yay!!  :)

Yeah, I've heard that the 3 or 4 month mark is usually when legit budding finally starts. ::tries to be patient::. Also, I know EXACTLY what you mean! I noticed just this week that mine started to smell different, and also that my body odor after working out is starting to smell sweeter and less musky. Also it seems that skin softness is STARTING to set in.

Thanks Damara. Will try to see what I can do without setting off too many alarm bells around me. :P

@ Ennaria: I agree with Squircle, that the last few shots show some real progress, and another proof of why HRT is magic. :)
I also noticed that you've started being more subtle with make-up etc which seems to have helped. Is that the case, or was it just the selection of shots which makes it look that way?

Thanks Damara. Will try to see what I can do without setting off too many alarm bells around me. :P

Thank you cindy16. ^_^
As I progress with my transition, and especially since I've been feeling and seeing the changes from HRT, I've been adjusting my style to what I find works best for me. That seems to be ever-evolving. The makeup, or loud/bright clothes and jewellery, are what I felt were me at the time. With the help of people I trust, I've found what looks good on me, and what I feel good in. Most days, I'm very subtle (I don't have a choice at work, as I'm in the Military). If I'm going out to an event, I tend to get pretty done up.

Pre-everything - I was looking (and feeling) kinda grim

Okay guys. Ready to get your mind blown? I recently went to the amazing Lady Ellen's here in New Jersey for an image consultation. This consisted of finding out what my sizes and colors were, what kind of cuts work best with my frame, and finally an in depth makeup lesson, because I have no idea how to do any of it. So. Here's the results from almost two years of transitioning.

Riley, you're beautiful, you've transitioned gorgeously, it's so amazing to see you smile after 2 years and all of the negative posts that I saw you make in the past, and congratulations on your upcoming GCS! :)

I was very happy when I saw this post.  We both started here about the same time.  I believe that your road has been tougher though.  Your smile gave me tears.

You look great.

Yeah, the site is back up!

Ok, this picture isn't the best, the lighting is low which makes me look a little paler than I am, but I am quite pale. I am doing electro every week so only get about a day where I can shave and not look deformed, so not much time to figure out makeup. I have long way to go, but I am starting to like the changes to my face. I think I am doing ok for 5 months at 42.

October? 2013 about 10 months prior.

Thanks!! Nope, not yet, eventually probably, I don't like my profile.  The weight loss and and changes seemed to make my nose so much bigger, but things seem to be shifting. My face looked kinda gaunt and smooth at the same time for a while. ox

It's funny, the pic of you from 10 months ago is very similar to how I used to look before transition. We could almost have been brothers... secret sisters :P :D
Aw heck, I'll post a photo for reference:

Okay, maybe not siblings, but cousins maybe. Anyway, it's great to see another transitioner at close to the same age (I'm 39). Keep up the electro as often as your wallet and regrowth rate will allow. That's the only thing I wish I'd been more aggressive with. It's embarrassing on days like today when I'm growing my facial hair out for electro and have to interact with others while doing so :-\

Okay guys. Ready to get your mind blown? I recently went to the amazing Lady Ellen's here in New Jersey for an image consultation. This consisted of finding out what my sizes and colors were, what kind of cuts work best with my frame, and finally an in depth makeup lesson, because I have no idea how to do any of it. So. Here's the results from almost two years of transitioning.
(http://i.imgur.com/9dTY1JEl.png)

Wow Shodan, you look fantastic! What an amazing transition, you look so happy now!


Can I just express how much I love this thread? I love to see everyone's journey on the path of living their truth. It's like watching a sleeping rose bud finally open up and bloom to it's full potential. You girls are awesome, thanks so much for sharing your journeys with the rest of us! I am am so happy for you all!!

Awe thanks for the happy feels gals :D

It has been such a long journey in transition and I have so much left to do with my mental health but I can finally start finishing up the legal side of my transition. It is so amazing to think how much just a couple years makes for all the good and bad. I've been having a real rough week but this made me smile a lot :)

Wow thanks! Yeah, it was not easy to find examples my age with similar build and face, but there were a few here, <another forum> and youtube that gave me the courage. I hope to be able to pass it along if I can.

I started electro immediately, even before hormones, wish I did it more before my face started getting softer. Now I do about two to three hours a week, and solo tv party   on the weekend with ice on my face. sigh.

Haven't been here since Aug 2014 and 5 months after here's my before and after progress, now approaching 10 months of hrt.

(Please don't quote the photo if replying it will be removed a little later. Don't want to mess up the forum formatting with an empty image link.)

Just wearing eye liner and some mascara at the moment. So far things seem cool. I haven't been sir'd since last Nov even without makeup. So I've really been walking on cloud 9 a lot lately. I want to try some new things with my hair like some subtle curls. But I'm still growing it out, length reaches the end of my sternum at the moment.

It's been a momentous 5 months for me to say the least!

This cracks me up as well, loved IT Crowd, and I am a fellow alumni of tech support. I dig your crazy (in a good way) hair color combinations and patterns.

I used to do support for Humongous Games, then Infogrames which became Atari. This was all the same company in the same building, I was at Humongous on 9/11.

My favorites were:

Me: "Ok, go to Start..."
Them: "WHOA, WHOA, Slow down..."

And guys from the south in a heavy accent would say "Do what now?"

Such a change to the appearance of your face when you have hair. If you are only just shy of 2 months, Girl, you are going to be a knock out in my opinion from what I am seeing.

Should be fixed. Sorry.
Ok so its been about 11 months on HRT so far. Figured I'd show everyone how I'm doing. I also wanted to give some hope as well. I've been seeing a lot of posts about people worried about transitioning in their 30's. I was 32 when I started my transition. I was extremely scared and i was convinced that I would ALWAYS look like a man in drag. I'll let the results speak for themselves.

@Joanne Feliz. Thanks!  I've always tried placing my best foot forward.  It also helps that i just naturally smile. My mom would just have to say the word smile and i'd smile  :D

@galaxy Danke! I was so nervous at the start, since i looked like that. I was planning FFS, but aftr 3mo all the ppl around me convinced me otherwise.

I'm still pretty early in transition just under 3 months now, so far so good. The worst thing is that I still only get gendered as male 100% of the time :( Well there have been a few time where I dont get gendered at all and a few girls will call me sweaty or honey which is better but still usually its he or sir.  I'm still only dressing androgynous in public so i guess that will change once i go part/full time.

anyways this was me about 2ish years ago.

I still feel completely lost and have no idea what I'm doing with myself but so far I'm liking the changes.

Big me before.

Sadly i don't have or will have enough money for FFS, i need to live with what i got.
Thank you for any attention :)

You don't need FFS.  Your'e quite cute.

I cannot understand why I can't loose muscle mass.  I'm jealous. ;)

Hugs,

Jennifer

Pretty much sums up the transition experience for all of us.

You are looking fantastic, by the way.  Great three month pictures - a massive change from where you were before.  Extremely cute.

I got same problem, not loosing muscles was BIG issue for me, but now i'm eating healthy, and i workout 5 times a week HIIT cardio focused on lower body/core, i guess this is the reason why my muscles starts dissapearing and i got lots of compliments about my ''fit'' look and how young i look  :-)

And thanks JLT1 :-) but you dont have reasons to bo jealous, you look great yourself :-)

You are all fantastic examples of what we can achieve

Yeah, the site is back up!

Ok, this picture isn't the best, the lighting is low which makes me look a little paler than I am, but I am quite pale. I am doing electro every week so only get about a day where I can shave and not look deformed, so not much time to figure out makeup. I have long way to go, but I am starting to like the changes to my face. I think I am doing ok for 5 months at 42.

October? 2013 about 10 months prior.

He's pretty so that's ok! ;) XD Also, thank you! I am happy I have my hair as I tried the wig route several years ago when it was shorter and I could not pull that off! D;

And thanks so much to everyone! I hope hormones help!! I am like... clawing at my soul to get them.. Not sure if that's safe. haha! I'm just starting to feel crazy and desperate!

Damara, you look really pretty, and as I've said before, I find it hard to believe you are not even on HRT yet.
If I may ask, is it just growing out your hair and facial hair removal, or you've done anything else too in your transition so far?

I haven't had any facial hair removal yet! D: That's another thing I'm working on! Living in the sticks sucks! lol! But thank you so much! Honestly I wish that I didn't feel so nice when I get kind words because I feel weird and vain. I don't look all that great in real life. I know what angles look good in photos and what lighting etc.. but still it's so encouraging to have people be encouraging! (go figure! lol!) :D

Wow. That's even more surprising.

Btw, there is no reason to feel weird or vain just because of someone's kind words. :)
I know it is easier said than done, as I too have never bothered much about my appearance but now suddenly feel conscious about it, and wonder if I am becoming too vain.
Anyway, I hope you are able to find the right medical help, for HRT and anything else you may need. I can relate to the 'living in the sticks' part too, as my search beyond the city and state that I live in has still not yielded results.

I'm a little bit amazed myself, I've lost 50+ pounds, but my face and nose has really thinned out. Probably a combination of HRT and weight loss. I'm also 35 btw, so I'm pretty happy about my results.

It's interesting you say that about your nose. I really noticed the same thing with me a few days ago. Mine's gotten thinner as well.

Same thing here. It's incredible what I used to look like before. My face has really thinned out, my nose shrunk considerably.

I've noticed that a lot in before and after pics. The face really looses a lot of mass, the nose especially. You can see some big honkin' shnozzes become cute and feminine. That's why it's so important to let HRT do its job first.

Just popping in to let you lovely ladies know that you are all gorgeous, and some of the comparisons here are jaw-dropping.

Also shout out to @Shodan, for looking like my Mum and @LittleEmily24 'cause I definitely just got a little crush on you. ;)

I chime in here once in a while.

I just want to remind those of you who have not started transition, or wonder if you should ever start, they you too may get similar results compared to the beautiful ladies in here.

The changes are often not AS drastic as they appear at first glance. The changes are not to bone structure, not without FFS, it is just, we get to look at a person after their dysphoria lifted.

The biggest difference in most who post to this thread, is a peace of mind. A desire after years of dysphoria to look at ourselves in the mirror and finally put some time and effort into what we see. A newly discovered joy in looking at pictures of ourselves. A pride in finally taking the leap of faith and transitioning.

If you take the leap and put in the effort, you too will see results.

People will recognize your progress in photos as well as in real life. That joy is infectious.

I second this wholeheartedly, you don't know your potential until you try and honestly these threads and YouTube videos inspired me to try.

This thread, the fantastic, the happy and the passing threads are IMHO not trigger traps, they are inspiring and I truly wish they had been around for the 13 y/o me that could have used a confidence boost and some belief in myself.

Tori, you know the way..  you've walked this path as well, you've put, really, into words what the secret is.  Once the hood of anguish, the veil of anger, the mask we wear to hide who we really are.. once it is lifted.. the true living has begun, that is when who we really are becomes visible.  THAT is what others finally see.  For years, my life's song, and sig line, was Mulan's lament, When Will My Reflection Show, Who I am Inside...   :'(

Most of us who have been finally fixing this.. birth defect.. and been on the path for at least a while, know that it isnt wise to go thru any of the surgeries (FFS, VFS, BA, or even GRS) until we've been changed enough by HRT, as it will do no good to get facial restructuring, or breast augmentation before, hormones, or even just after starting as the changes will be totally unpredictable.   I see myself first working with FFS, but not for a while yet, until my face stops changing..  maybe I should make some really funny faces.. Mom always said not to, as my face will freeze that way.  Then Toby can work his magic that much sooner!   :P   

In all seriousness..  you did nail it.. once we begin to love ourselves, get to live ourselves, we really -will- begin to change.


oh, geeez Rachel... you look like my sister! 

Cindy .. oh my, honey, if you look ANYTHING like your profile pic, you're going to be stunning!!

Paige..  I was a 24-26" waist til senior year in HS, 28", 108lbs til 1st yr of college, 30"/124lbs @ 26yrs old (when I got married).. biggest, heaviest, 34" waist, 171lbs.. now.. I'm 33" waist (almost 32", size 7 jeans), 144lbs.

Girls, you'll find, and hear, and read us older girls telling you how good you're going to turn out..  we're really envious, that we.. well, I do, anyway..  wish that I had the .. (yeah, gonna use the words I sooo dislike, on you..) courage, and strength, to have really pressed my parents and said who I was when I was your age.   I tried at 12, and quickly shut up realizing the danger I was in.. times are different, so completely different now than they were then.   So, as good as you might think we are (I'm not), you are going to have all the years LESS T-damage we went thru, to overcome and be that much better.  No, I'm not saying this to stroke your ego, or give you false hope.. it's just more hope than we had at your age.

Comparison shots of 24 y.o. / 30 (or smth) y.o. / coming close to 37 years.
It is a bit of pity that I dont have any photos of younger age and thus I will never be able to make those "whole life timeline" videos. Buuuuut, on the other hand, it does not really matter :). 
So, my message is - You can do it (if such a lazy and self-conscious person as me could, then You can do even better! Gah, I am over 21 months on HRT and still have no clue how to use makeup! Shame :D).

I must be getting really confident to post this. Yesterday I showed up at my therapist in boy mode for the first time.  She was stunned at how much different I looked, and she has been dealing with the <transgender> for more than 20 years. I have thought about posting pictures that would show how much of my change is HRT & weight loss, and how much of it is presentation. There is no question that my raw looks are radically different than they were a year ago before I started HRT.  But learning how to present has also contributed to my appearance. I think I look dramatically younger in girl mode.  I hope this might be informative to people who haven’t started yet.

Paula, thanks for your words, but if this was intended for me, well I don't look anything like my profile pic. That is Natalia Tena, I liked her in the HP movies and I like the words she's signing here - 'believe in magic'. I've just added a message below my profile pic which clarifies who she is. :)
I am closeted and haven't put up my own pics here as of now, but I do hope I can do it someday.

Can I have that sword? ;D Also, I'm 32 years old FtM and my sister had to do my makeup for grad/prom and other than that or being on stage for a show, I have never worn makeup, but shaving for the first time felt as natural as breathing. So, if a pre-T guy can feel that about first EVER shave, I think you'll be fine with makeup! :D

Anyhooo.... sorry to barge into the Ladies' Room, but I have to say, looking good!!!

Hey, thanks for Your kind words :). That sword is long gone (but I still have three others - falchion and two baskethilts)- tucked away) - You can have them if You can handle them, dude, plus a sack with full set of german gothic plate armor :). Shaving... this "novelty" might kinda grow old with time :). I always wondered if guys feel the same when having that annoying and irritating stubble or for them it is different (I once decided that it might be cool to have that "three day stubble" look, eventually just could not bear that sensation.

The stubble is a different story from the actual act of shaving. I have terribly sensitive skin (was a great excuse to not wear makeup at least!) so am learning to do the shave and cope with the zit aftermath!  :-\
