Yall... Surgery is LESS THAN 48 HOURS AWAY!!
We're leaving tmrw (Wed) morning a 6am to drive down to Davie, FL where #drgarramone
office is. Pre-op is at 11am. I'll find out my actual surgery time and get all marked up!! Hoping to fall asleep super early tonight, since I haven't slept much the last couple days. TIME TO ROCK & ROLL!!
Tuesday and also #transformationtuesday
for me! Today marks shot number 6 and 5 full weeks on HRT. I’m finally starting to see small changes, and it’s from looking back at old photos like the one on the left that I’m reminded of how far I’ve come. Don’t get me wrong, i still am a sucker for doing makeup (though I should mention I didn’t do my makeup in that photo myself), but it’s nice finally feeling comfortable enough to not NEED it in order to feel wanted and accepted.
If you are still struggling to find yourself, know it gets better. There are better days ahead of you, it’s just gotta be taken one day at a time. .
Slowly I’m falling in love with who I have been all along, and that self love is something I never thought I was capable of feeling. Yet here we are.

I’m comparing Movember week 2 to last years Movember Week 2!
1st pic is 2017 and Second is Today.
Last year is the year I started T and had began to grow a bit of facial hair when november came around but this year I actually have a decent chance of growing a beard for movember and it really doesnt seem that big of a deal but for some trans folks its a huge thing they often dont get to or haven’t been able to experiance and do before which is super exciting.
Also big reminder that in light of Movember, Movember is to bring awareness into Mens Health problems such as Prostate cancer, Testicular Cancer, and Suicide/Mental Illnesses among Male Identified people,and because we are all away that some cancers are different for men, and women that, surprise Men can also have mental health issues too which often goes ignored due to the stigma against men with mental illnesses. (By all means im not sticking up for all the shitty men out there but bringing attention to why we do movember, and to bring awareness to things that should be talked about)

I’m glad I have certain people around that I know I can trust with my life! People who will look after me if I need it. I am so thankful for all of you wether you see this or not ❤️
Dysphoria does not preclude happiness.
Happiness does not preclude the need for change.
The negativity surrounding transgender narratives is a deeply held and pervasive stereotype. It is manifest not only because it is so often true for many of us, (yes, many of us struggle too often and too deeply) but also because society thirst for this sort of “pain porn”.
Marginalized communities learn early and quickly, whether consciously or unconsciously, that often in order to access help and care, acknowledgment and respect, health care and basic human rights, that they must unravel, at length, the tales of their struggles, persecutions, and pain. Only then are we taken (somewhat) seriously, given access to the care we need, or acknowledged that our story has been heard.
I’m here to say that not only are all of our stories unique and complex - built upon many opposing layers of shifting, swirling vortices of happiness and sadness, comfort and discomfort, dysphoria and euphoria, awareness and unawareness - but there are no requirements to being who you know yourself to be.
You do not need dysphoria to be transgender.
You do not need to have waded through a life full or torment and oppression to seek the changes you know you need.
There is no threshold of pain that makes you deserving of your own life.
And never let anyone ever tell you any differently.
haircuts are the best remedy to dysphoria thanks for coming to my ted talk 🤪🙃🤑 #gay
The body is designed to be an efficient fat burner just as it is designed to efficiently store fat. Both of these are mediated by powerful hormones.
When it comes to getting rid of fat there is no hormone more powerful than testosterone which is increased by way of explosive activity such as the discus throw using a band.
The exercise adds variation to other explosive movements which don't use a rotation. Rotation can help prevent many of the back injuries associated with sitting in a stiff position like sitting and facing a monitor.
You may need to start very slowly if you already had a back injury or are just trying this.

Here's my face 2 1/2 months on testosterone and happy with the way life is heading.
Keep pushing and you can always overcome anything!
Talk about tacos 😍🤤
Tacos can be healthy, too! Substitute the bad fat for the good fat.
Just a gentle reminder that not everyone medically or naturally transitions or has surgery and that's OKAY! YOU - ARE - VALID and you are loved. Just because I chose a different path and decided to do HRT and pursue Top Surgery doesn't mean every single Trans* person has to or needs to. We are all different, Transgender or not and we should embrace the fuck out of that. You are YOU, you are unique and I support you. 🖤🖤🖤
