Which parts of Franklin Park would you like me to post next?

Today I finally posted a collection of images from a scenic overlook in Franklin Park’s Wilderness (not the Overlook Ruins off the Playstead) and I was going to ask a question at the bottom of the post but I decided to split it off into its own post.

In addition to the pictures from the scenic overlook I’m hoping to get posted tomorrow, I also have a series of pictures of Scarboro Hill that my recent photo of the painted tree (posted on both Instagram (more detail) and on Twitter (more detail)), some pictures of Scarboro Pond (not nearly a complete set yet), and I want to take some pictures at Schoolmaster Hill and the Playstead, but where would you like me to get pictures of next?

More changes, some from meds, some not

My bod has changed a little more from my meds, not too much but a little. Just enough to see some difference in my weekly measurements. My weight is yoyoing, and it went up over 200 pounds in the last week, but it just made me be a little more attentive to what, and how much, I’m eating. I think the Halloween candy in my apartment got a little too tempting, but it looks like I’ve got my weight back under 200 pounds again. I’m just vain enough for that number to be a problem, especially after spending so many years at 150 before my metabolism changed when I hit 30. Continue reading

And now it’s begun

Updated 19 Oct 2016 to show that the website for Translog is once again available.

One thing that many, if not most, male-to-female transgender folk want is to see their body changed to agree with the woman that’s inside them. The best way to do that is through hormone therapy (HRT), a combination of medications that generally add estrogen and progesterone to their bodies while blocking the production of testosterone. Back in June I was finally able to begin my first bit of hormone therapy, and early this month I was prescribed the rest of the therapy hormones. My body has finally begun to change into the feminine body I’ve wanted for over 25 years. Continue reading

[Off Topic] I have a question for y’all

Yesterday I met with my endocrinologist and learned that I’m starting my hormone replacement therapy as a trans woman. When I shared that on Facebook I was asked if I’d be blogging my transition to becoming the woman I should have been born as.

My question is, would you guys be interested in reading it if I did? Also, should I post it to this site or should I start a new site for it? I know I haven’t posted much here in a while but I’m hoping to start writing again so I’m not sure if I should start a new site for blogging my transition or if I should include it in my posts here. What do y’all think?

The poll will close on Sunday, 11 September.

Updated 26 September: It took me a lot longer than expected to update this. Since all the votes were for me to write about my transition here that’s what I’ll do. I’m writing a post now that will include an update that makes me particularly happy.
