and now know who River Song is but the wait until September for the next episode is going to be long
I did expect my underarm’s to hurt less than my face but the test patch last week was surprisingly painful, you get used to how it feel on one area and over time you have less hairs anyway, so moving to a new untreated area was always going to be a bit of a step up. Hopefully it’ll not be all that bad and just trying to focus on not having to shave in the future and how today will be just temporary short period of unpleasantness.
I dont hate being a girl because people have hurt me. I hate being seen as a girl because I’m not one.

This goes for me. Being molested had nothing to do with being trans, it did not make me feel less like a boy.
Also for the record it did not make me a submissive. The only thing it did do was make it a little harder to admit my attraction to males but then the whole section 28 thing also didn’t help with that and made me less trusting.
It does make me wonder how people get by with so few pockets.

You know social gender norms are messed up when you end up feeling genderqueer just because you want some clothes with freaking useable pockets.
Not having proper pockets is one of the things that does annoy me since I transitioned.
Don’t get me wrong handbags are the best things ever and a godsend for a geek. I now have something for my moleskine, camera, USB cables, phone and all the other random things I carry around all the time but being able to have my keys on me at all time is nice, I guess its a security thing.
Having been forced to wear a suit for the first time in years recently, not having pockets on the inside of the jacket was a pain, nowhere to have you phone is a quick to reach place or your travel card which made the tube a little bit of a pain
Got damn it! I wish I could do this!!
If only it were so easy. I’d end up switching them off
“If you are a woman, if you’re a person of colour, if you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, if you are a person of size, if you are a person of intelligence, if you are a person of integrity, then you are considered a minority in this world.
…And it’s going to be really hard to find messages of self-love and support anywhere. Especially women’s and gay men’s culture. It’s all about how you have to look a certain way or else you’re worthless. You know when you look in the mirror and you think ‘oh, I’m so fat, I’m so old, I’m so ugly’, don’t you know, that’s not your authentic self? But that is billions upon billions of dollars of advertising, magazines, movies, billboards, all geared to make you feel shitty about yourself so that you will take your hard earned money and spend it at the mall on some turn-around creme that doesn’t turn around shit.”

This last week I actually lost weight, which is nice.
Not a massive amount but a start, and still a very long way to go. The plan is very much slow and steady. I know the maximum you can safely lose a week is about a kilogram, plus I wasn’t that good last week, so hopefully I’ll do better in future week.
One thing that did stand out was how I immediately thought of treating myself with cake or something else ‘bad’ for me, like pizza or fish & chips, which goes to the heart of the problem, I do end up eating a lot of the wrong things. Re-educating what I eat does seem to be the core of what I need to do and find other things besides sugar and fat to treat myself with. Free pop at work also doesn’t help.
While was I losing the weight last time I because very focused on my weekly progress which showed as it all came back after that focus drifted and I had the benefit of my body running on Testosterone. This time its going to be more difficult being Estradiol, very very welcome in so many way but storing fat more effectively is not one of them
