I started going to the Saturday evening TG group at the center in San Diego. The group has a lot of great people and I learn something new every time.
I went to a highly recommended wig shop nearby and got a professional fitting on a lace front wig. Also found some rimless glasses to wear while I wait for the Canadian FDA approval of the new flexible lens implants. Hopefully both are going to make a big improvement.
Quit the electrolysis for the summer since it took 3 weeks last time for the redness to go away. I know I have to stay out of the sun before and after the treatment.

Anyone used a professional makeover and photo service? I know there is one in Los Angeles but if the one in Orange County is still in business then it will be half the drive time. I hope to do this in early June so I can see what I could look like and also have some new photos to post.
I got no responses from emails or phone calls to either of the makeover services so I am going to rework my amateur photo studio and try to do everything myself.

I just started having some of my facial hair removed. It would be great if I wouldn,t have so much of a 5o,clock shadow or maybe not have to shave. It seems like it might take 3 passes over each area spread out over several months.

Went to my first meeting with a great group of girls. I learned a lot, and hope to go back many times but the Friday evening traffic was bad.
Has anyone tried the new Reader's Digest diet? I bought the Google app for my tablet. The high-protein low fat smoothie recipes are really good. I have lost a few pounds but will have to do a lot more to reach my goal of dropping 3 inches from my waist.

Going for a few more rounds of pueraria murifica with added fenugreek now. The left breast is looking good, now I'm trying to get the right girl to match up. I'm alternating between yoga and ab exercises to shrink the waistline. Of course with all the holiday food temptations I doing well just to stay even.
The wig I saw online wasn't available when I went back to look last month. Also my camera decided to quit so I'll have to choose a new one before I do a new photo session. I ordered an info package from Lucille so I have a lot more to learn now.

I started having trouble with leg muscle cramps and a feeling that my muscles were wasting away even though I doubled up on the exercise. Stopping the estrogenic herbs has brought back excess oil and acne.
Progesterone cream seems to help with weight reduction but it drives me nuts. Makes me feel like I want reassignment surgery ASAP so I could make love as a woman.
I have a fairly clear picture of the steps I need to take to improve my appearance. I need a multi-year contract with a dermatologist/cosmetic surgeon.

Maybe I've hit my genetic limit at a 37' bust. The puraria murifica and saw palmetto stopped providing the right hormonal feeling after a couple of weeks of maximum dose. So now I'm going to stop and see how much I can lose from my waistline.
I'm using LoseIt! online to track my eating and exercise with a Sleeptracker watch to track my sleep. Let's see if I can get the flabby abs from 35 down to 32.

Busy taking pills and massaging to get my breasts growing again. I hope to add another inch to my bust and that will hit my genetic limit. I'll go bra and wig shopping in May and post some new pictures.

Had some free girl time today so I experimented with makeup. Mascara is really easy to use for making longer eyelashes. I'll have to go shopping eventually for eyeliner and eyeshadow since the colors on hand aren't right for me.

02/01/12: I had to combine 2 wig photos from iVillage together into 1 new photo to get them to upload. My LoseIt diet is working. Maybe I can get dowm from a size 14 to a 10? Who knows? I need a good wig to start looking more girly.

01/30/12: I just selected some hairstyles from the iVillage makeover tool. Maybe they have to be moderated first but none of the 5 files in my new gallery are showing up yet.

Tried some different wigs on a photo of myself with iVillage makeover. Just want to see what might look best. I always visualize myself as having lots of curly hair.
After I get some styles that look halfway promising I'll upload them into a gallery for comments.
