    • And about mom, she was not younger than 84 years old. That is an age hardly surprising to die in. In addition, my mother had the Alzheimer's for about 15 years. It may even have been a relief to some of her chiildren that she finally received the peace.

       

      I do know that saying the above is unappropriate. I hope to be excused, nevertheless.

    • That would be lovely, Lucy. It is good to hear that somebody is even concidering  to continue with one's traditions.

       

      Furthermore, dear Lucy, I remember you as the very person who knows how to jump and scream. It has been a pleasure and an honour to meet up.

    • Hi Tiina, it's lovely to see you here, though I am so sorry to hear your sad news.
      Good luck in your brave new world out of the closet!
      And a much belated good morning, perhaps I can carry that over for tomorrow.

    • By the way, I want to be consequent in my bid to come out. I am therefore doing what I did in a Finnish trans web place community. That is disclosing my male Facebook identity. I would be honoured if any of my Gender Society friends would like to contact with me in Facebook.

    • Hello, everybody and good morning over quite a while!

       

      I had a discussion over private messages with Katie. She was kind enough to give me a go ahead for my wish to look around in this place to see if any old friends might be around. I want to say hello to everybody and anybody who would know me and also get to know persons who I have not yet had the pleasure.

       

      I have quite recently taken the step of outing myself as a transvestite. At the age of 56, it is not too early by any means. From the positive reactions by my old friends (who have always known me as a man) in Facebook and elsewhere I have concluded that this should have been done much earlier. Better late than not at all, though.

       

      Having lived in Estonia for the last three years, I visited Finland last week for the first time during these three years. The compelling reason was the funeral of my mother.  I was naturally dressed as her son in the funeral service rather than a daughter but my sisters and their children knew that I was actually their aunt rather than an uncle. All of this is not uncomplicated to cope with.

       

      I am not quite on a mood to scream and jump today but I would be happy to observ it if somebody else would :-)

    • I will just be pretty quiet I think Christine, very unlike me I know! It looks like you have been doing a fantastic job though, which will have been much appreciated by everyone here.

    • Welcome Back Nikki, looking forward to chatting again and your input. Smile

    • Welcome home Nikki, I am one of the ones who joined after you went "on holiday" -- I'm not quite sure how it happened but I have ended up as moderator and news editor, lol. anyhow I'm looking forward to meeting up with you in the mad house (otherwise known as the chat room)

    • I would just like to say 'hello' to everyone on here, some of you will perhaps remember me, to many of you I will be new. Either way, I thought I would give a short history. 

       

      I joined this site when it was TW back about 6-7 years ago now and was a chat hostess as well as being in overall charge of the forums, a role that passed to Christine who I have no doubt has been admirable. I left just as this site, GS, was launched and I won't go into details here as to why, as some of it is personal. I spoke to Katie at the time and decided to keep my account active, because, well, as a great man once said, "I'll be back!" And so I am. I hope some of my forum posts were useful to new members reading them for the first time, and I am looking forward to seeing old friends here as well as making new ones. My apologies to anyone over the last two years who has sent me a friend request. I wasn't ignoring you, I just havn't been online. (I'm not sure if the new site displays one's last log in anymore, that would have been the clue). I'm going to take some time to find my way around again and will no doubt pop into the chat room to say 'hello'. 

       

      In the meantime, I will be browsing the forums and will add my two cents worth to the conversations in there and get a feel for this place again. As well as figuring out how everything works again!! Lol.

       

      I look forward to chatting with you all.

    • Hi Michelle.

      Good morning even though it is 9.52pm here in the UK.

      I tell everyone I meet when the topic of being trans whatever that come up that "Being yourself is the most natural thing in the world" Also not being yourself is a kind of deception wether that be to theirs selves or others .

      Take care and be proud of who you are .

    • Just a quick post to say Hi and restart the Good Morning Forum posts....

       

      For me, I woke up this morning and saw brightly colored leaves being lit by the sun.

      How peaceful it felt. What really made it special was contemplating how far I've come as Michelle.


      The denial, guilt and worry about what others would think are long gone. They have been

      replaced with a peaceful feeling of exploring who I truly am and a sense of wonder at my new

      perspective of the things around me as Michelle.

       

      It will be a while before I can afford to do the FFS , Lipo and SRS procedures that I want, but for now,

      I can enjoy just being me inside.

    • i have just had the most wonderful day in a long long time!  Today had been long in the planning – an afternoon hours long photo-shoot with a professional photographer.  i had taken advantage of an online special offer back in July last year and then arranged for Mistress’ daughter, a qualified beautician, to do my make-up and accompany me on the shoot along with Mistress.  The timing had to be today because it was the first and only day for a long time that we were all in town.

      Yesterday, i visited Mistress’ daughter and did all of her ironing while discussing what i would wear for the photo shoot.  i had already got my maid’s uniform at her house but also took along a maroon faux leather mini-skirt and a pretty blouse to wear on the way to the shoot and for the first part of the shoot.  i also took along some red lingerie and some black and we decided on the red.  So, this morning, i arrived in good time at Mistress’ daughter’s house and, after a coffee, sat with her while she did my nails and then applied my make-up – going for the smokey-eyed look.  i had bought some stick on 3-D nail transfers because i would only have to remove any polish applied at the end of the day before going home to my wife and these were applied first and looked great!  Next came the primer, foundation, powder and then the eye make up followed by false eyelashes, blusher and, after stopping for another coffee and some cake, lipstick.  She did a wonderful job and as impressed as i was when i first looked at myself, i was even more astonished once i put on my wig and did my hair!

      The make-up session, including time out for coffees took just under 2 hours and then i dressed “en femme”,  loaded the car and then set off for the shoot, collecting Mistress on the way.  Unfortunately, her daughter was unable to come to the shoot but she had phoned ahead to Mistress to say how fabulous i looked and Mistress confirmed that when she set eyes on me as i entered her house.  Mistress and i have been like ships passing in the night these last months and had not seen each other for a long time so it was really good chatting and catching up in the car on the 1 hours drive to the photographers.

      Once at the photographers, we were greeted and given an excellent coffee to drink while we chatted with the photographer about what we hoped to achieve with the session.  He was great.  completely unfazed by taking pictures of a transgender person and took an interest in Mistress’ and my relationship and clearly understood that there needed to be a slightly kinky but tasteful element to the pictures.  i felt quite relaxed talking to him before the shoot but as we started i felt quite nervous, worried whether my facial expression would be natural enough and whether the poses he wanted me to take would look relaxed rather than stiff but i need not have worried, the photographer was terrific and talked me through the poses and the looks he wanted me to take just as i had seen professional models and photographers do on fashion shoots and he continually encouraged and supported me.  

      The session went really well, so well in fact that we extended well over the hour and ran into the time allocated for reviewing the pictures afterwards which we all agreed could be done at a later date – next Wednesday in fact.  So, i will not get to see the results of the shoot until next week and am now eagerly and excitedly awaiting my return visit.  Sadly, readers of my blog will also have to wait to see the pics but i promise to post some if not all of them once i get them.  The pictures he took were a nice mix of glamorous, sexy, cheeky and a little kinky but all very tasteful and i have to say that i fully enjoyed the session and playing the model for the afternoon.  Mistress enjoyed the session also and was invaluable in stepping in to adjust my hair on occasion and in making suggestions as to how a particular pose might be improved.  We all had a great time.

      In fact, i thoroughly enjoyed the whole day, having the make-over in the morning was a lot of fun and it was such a pity Mistress’ daughter could not join us on the shoot but she will get to see the benefits of her handiwork once we get the pictures.  The make-up was so good that when we returned to Mistress’ house and i had to change back into male mode, i really did not want to remove the make-up at all.  i looked and felt so feminine, it was wonderful but sadly all good things must come to an end and remove the make-up i did.  i now look forward eagerly and excitedly to next Wednesday when Mistress and i will get to see the pictures before we head off to spend 2 nights together in a hotel south of Perth.  It will be wonderful to spend some extended quality time with Mistress – something which is exciting in itself, but now with the added bonus of having some pictures to go through and share it is all the more exciting.

    • While waiting for a bus today i got into a conversation with some guy I know.He was telling me, he now attends college and is ivoved in some volentary work(great i thought.)

      This guy has had is problems and wants to give something back working with people as he told me. Conversation got on to cuts and how its been difficult to get funding at college its about time the goverment looked after us at home he said.

      We send millions of pounds to africa to deal with aids he said why dont they just stop ####ing each other up the ass.

      All i could think of was a familiar trans thought(Why wont this cock go away.)

      I just find it hard to belive people still think like this,mind you I did feel ashamed i did not say

      a word.Hope his college work dont lead him into politics.

    • Hi Jessi,
      Yes, i was very lucky to have someone who is understanding and supportive. I did write the store manager a letter saying she was very helpful and was lucky to have her as an employee. Hope it "paid" off for her!

      But everyone is pleasant when I present my card, only two young women who read me seemed a little "off" by me, but just completed teh sale and off I went. One was from the mid-east, the other was eastern-block - maybe they are not as tolerant? But overall all transactions have been pleasant, whether they have read me or not. Sure makes shopping easier! Now for a Visa card in my name.... ; )

    • Robin,

      Have you had any similar interactions since beginning to use this card?

      Sounds like a wonderful girl. I am glad she was the one you with whom you dealt.

    • March 12, 2012 5:19 AM GMT
    • Hi Robin, I think when these types of things happen it puts a little bit in my hearts saving account. I then have a little something to fall back on when something of the other kind of encounter happens. Sounds like you got a big deposit for your heart. I'm very happy for you

    • This afternoon I got dressed and went out shopping - there was a sale at a dept store I like, and had gotten a second cresit card in my name, Robin W......n. The card came with instructiuons that I may have to present ID when I first use it(!). Anyway, I bought some new "scanties" and brought them up to the counter and presented my new card. The clerk, a twenty-something woman, asked for my ID! So, I presented her with my male drivers license (a CDL for driving 18_wheelers noless!) and my other credit card. "OH!" she said...to which I added she was the first person to know (which she was, in person at least). I told her I was changing to her "team" and she asked how it was going. I said it is awkward and embarrasing at times. She says, "There is nothing to be embarrased about, it's just how you are." I thanked her and asked if my new card was all set to use, "Yes, you're good..." and "good luck.". What a nice person...

    • That is the very trouble. I shall land there pretty late in the evening and the action will start early Wednesday morning. Not room for any significant boozing, not to mention that I do not know whether I'll dare leave any decorative features on myself.

      Your bureaucratic geography is in place as always. I'll fly as early as tomorrow and right now I am somewhat nerviced. Probably with no reason, I know, but it is not something I could help. Of course I am going to survive but that is not making it any easier at this moment.

    • October 17, 2011 12:24 PM BST
    • Good morning Tiina, nice to see you back here again.


      Hmm, a central European town that accomodates quite a lot of European bureaucracy eh, would that be Brussels by any chance?


      I'll be on a plane next week, I love flying. Try and enjoy it, babe!


      No bureaucracy where I'm going though, just sun and a swimming pool. Bliss.

    • Good morning, everybody, over a lengthy period of time. It feels great to be among friends again. And this site looks so much better now than it used to.

       

      I am soon going to visit a well known Central European town that accomodates quite a lot of European bureaucracy. This makes me somewhat nerviced as I have not flown for years. I obviously need to take more luggage with me than would be normal for just one day. I do want to change in the hotel to wear my black dress and stand on my heels. I'll have to appear in my public male capacity during the day, though.

       

      I hope everybody is well and I invite all those to jump and scream who still remember what it means :-)

    • Thanks for your suggestion but I've changed my diet as much as I can. My exercise routine has been interrupted by a knee injury. I'll be back at it as soon as I can walk again. I am continuing to lose weight but only ½ lb a month.
      I'm scheduled for lipo next month, not for weight loss but for body shaping. The weight loss is only a side benefit. My first stop after that is shopping for a new swim suit.

    • February 18, 2012 3:41 AM GMT
    • Change your lifestyle habits in diet and physical activity takes a promise of time and energy. Do not focus on too much on the long-term goal of losing 40 pounds; try to lose 40 pounds without a good weight loss plan.

    • January 1, 2012 2:53 PM GMT
    • It's not just us though Karen - it happens to all women so we're not being singled out in that respect lol. A lot came off my backside too - which meant that I could wear a size 8 UK (size 6 US) jeans when I was at my skinniest and I don't think I have been that size since my early teens.

      Good luck sweetheart, It is so worth it xxx

    • December 31, 2011 10:06 PM GMT
    • I'm just irritated that the first place the weight comes of is from the breasts. It's a cruel joke nature plays on us.

    • December 31, 2011 8:51 PM GMT
    • Karen,

      Don't give up on the weight loss.  I turned on the diabetic switch inside me by being overweight (265lbs - a size 22 UK and a BMI which put me in the severely obese category).  Fortunately my local Health Authority have classes for diabetics to help them eat more healthily and also classes on losing weight and setting targets.  I made the most of these, unlike some as only approx 10% of those people diagnosed with this condition ever bother to attend.

      So, armed with the facts, I radically changed my diet, cutting out all the rubbish I had been eating and switchd to a healthy home produced diet.  I joined a gym and set myself my goals - 18 months to get back down to a size 12 and around 147lbs (10½ stone)

      As I started losing weight and became fitter, I increased my gym routine and things were going so well, I changed my goals to something a little more stringent - to get down to 130lbs within 10 months.  I must admit it was difficult and in the end I was going to the gym for a workout 5 days a week plus swimming - and just 1 week after my target date I weighed in at just 130lbs.

      I had lost an amazing 136lbs (over half my body weight) in a fraction over 10 months.  I was in a size 10 (UK) dress - and even felt comfortable in size 8 (UK) jeans.  However, I must confess I was too scrawny at this weight so have allowed myself to creep back up to around 137lbs and a size 12 dress.

      There was one bad side effect though - mainly down to my age, in that my skin has lost a lot of elasitcity since my youth and my face is now rather lined - which is why, in two weeks time, I am heading off to Peru for an FFS which will include a face lift and laser treatment for the fine lines.  So it has come at a price for myself.

      So, was it worth it for me - the answer is a resounding 'YES'.  I am so much fitter, my blood sugar levels have remained in the 'normal' level for the past 3 years (even my GP is amazed at that) and I can shop for clothes I like without a worry.  I feel a lot younger with an added zest for life and with the benefits of my FFS I will probably look a lot younger too.  So, if I could do it, so can you lol

      Good luck love

      and as the ad says "You're worth it"

    • To start with, I'm a big girl. Stout. I've been struggling to lose the extra weight and have finally got into a routine that works. I've lost nearly 20 lbs. And now I'm looking at bras that are too big and wondering if it's worth it. I've considered augmentation in the past and decided against it. Now I'm wondering if I'm going to have to do it anyway. I'm not going to decide right now. My target weight is still months away and I'll have to talk it out with my SO. 

      The things we girls go through... I've had a wonderful year anyway. I hope everyone else has too and have a happy and fun new year!

    • It is already afternoon here but I can still say good morning to everybody in North America :-)

       

      I shall travel to the heart of European super bureacracy tomorrow. Right now I am troubelling my head with thoughts about what to pack with me for a cozy stay in the hotel room in the evening and how to manage the airport security. I have not flown for years and the present rules are totally new for me.

       

      I shall obviously have to pack anything girly into the luggage I won't have with me in the cockpit. It would race unneccesary questions if the security control discovered certain items in my hand luggage. I do not know whether it would be a good idea to wear tights under my pants during the flight. I have heard that you would have to take off the shoes before boarding. Maybe I should also remove nail polish from my toes.

       

      Problems, problems and problems!

       

    • October 16, 2011 6:33 AM BST
    • Take care of your wings and eventually you will fly :-)

    • September 11, 2011 10:43 AM BST
    • I believe I will fly. I so want to live. But it seems like I'm living someone else's life. Now I'm on the documents is still the guy. And I do not know what to do. The people of this mixed catches, some people just laugh ... Some with me just do not talk. Almost no friends, there is a transgender friend, but they are in other cities of Russia and Kazakhstan. The guy from Baku, Azerbaijan, said that in love with me, but it is far, but I'm not sure that love can survive distance. I want to fly. And I believe, I'll fly!
