He advised me that to look more feminized I’d need to lose weight … not just fat but also bulky muscles. Over the years since he said that, I’ve taken his advice and lost 50 pounds or so … slowly.
I’m still 25 pounds away from my ideal weight and now that I’m on feminizing hormones it’ll be harder yet to lose those last 25 pounds, but at least I don’t have bulky muscles any more. This look goes a long way towards enabling me to look as feminine as I basically am, brain-wise.
With that progress comes confidence. A few years ago, I was embarrassed to go out in public looking like the girl I am … and this last week I was wearing short shorts and a mid-riff baring top, and doing a sexy photo session in public.
It feels good. These are the pictures from that shoot. The sun was in my eyes, hence the squint, sorry.
And no, I don’t shave my legs except touch-up work. I’ve waxed the hair into submission or oblivion. Better.
As I look at these pictures critically, I realize that I’m not really all that slender any more. For example, my tummy is starting to take on a female-tummy shape. That’s just fine with me. It’s not a must-have as to having a particular weight. That is just a guideline. For me, it’s about looking feminine, looking good and being healthy.
