Here I am on day 27 of my recovery and I think I’ve entered the more grueling part. The pain is more of a nagging soreness at the surgical site, but now those big improvements are very small from day to day. It’s kind of mind over matter at this point... I feel pretty good, though there’s not a chance I could go back to work right now. I have good energy, but not like I would normally. I’m not complaining, as I knew what I was getting myself into. I just want to keep it real when talking about recovery. I have no regrets and love seeing my body in the mirror when I get out of the shower. This is just the mentally challenging part of the journey where I’m thrilled I had this done, but at the same time I look forward to the soreness going away. Dilating is still going well and I have a follow up appointment tomorrow. Wish me luck! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #style #fashion #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postop #postoptranswoman #genderconfirmationsurgery #vaginoplasty #sheathdress #blackboots #boots

Hey everyone. Not a lot to say today ... last night my daughter lost her great grandmother (my ex-wife’s grandmother). She’s being told now, and it breaks my heart. Savanna had this special bond with her. I know she’ll be devastated. I’m sad too ... she was a special lady who made it to age 92. It’s wild to think that when she was born was the first year movies had sound. It’s mind boggling to think of the societal and technological changes she witnessed in almost a century of life. So, Rest In Peace Gran ... you’re with the Lord now and all your pain is gone. 😊🙏🏻💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #postop #postoptranswoman #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #hoodie

As I reflected on 2019, I realized I had an amazing year! It had ups and downs, but even the negative things I was able to turn around into something positive. In 2018, I really became Jen and felt good about my life heading into 2019. This past year, though, I felt like I was able to come into my own. I’ve met and developed close relationships with so many loving, caring and interesting people. I never thought I would reach this level of confidence. I wish everyone could feel the way I do right now. I even had life changing surgery 25 days ago! This year will be hard to top, but I look forward to 2020. I already have new adventures planned and can’t wait to see what the coming year brings!!! 😊💕🥂 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #style #fashion #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #flashbackfriday #tgif #postoptranswoman #postop #legs #gcs

I already got my big present on 12/2, but Christmas is nearly upon us now... my second one as myself. No matter what your beliefs are, I hope we can all enjoy this time of year. For me, all presents, trees, cookies and decorations aside, I’m so thankful that God saw fit to send us a beacon of Hope. Someone who could show us a better way to live. Someone who always reminded us that love was the most important thing. I understand this is a difficult and stressful time of year for many ... but I pray for blessings upon all of my family, friends and everyone else. Merry Christmas and God Bless! ✝️🙏🏻😊💕 - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #postoptranswoman #postop #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #gcs #srs #vaginoplasty #pencilskirt #style #fashion #christmaseve

Well, gotta do some last minute Christmas shopping today. I don’t have to get that much, but hopefully it won’t be too crowded. I need to do some wrapping too. Day 21... three weeks of recovery ... the pain is noticeably less. Actually, the swelling, though still significant, is much much less. I’ve been good, and haven’t missed any dilating sessions. Three times a day and if you include the setup and cleanup, I’m spending between an hour and a half and two hours each day just dilating. I have to plan my days around that schedule. So, that’s my life right now. I hope all of you are doing well, too! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #postoptranswoman #postop #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #gcs #srs #vaginoplasty #leggings

Yay! I made my triumphant return to church this morning! I know many of you have no religious affiliation, but for me, 18 months ago, I found the most wonderful congregation who loved me as I was. I was still three months from going full time, but it didn’t matter. I was treated as a human being and not some outcast or weirdo or freak. I love my church family ... I can never put into words exactly what they mean to me. Everyone was just so amazing and loving. Not only have I been able to integrate into the congregation, but they voted me in as a deacon. Not bad for someone who would be an outcast or untouchable in many places. This message goes out to all my trans brothers and sisters ... you are all beautiful and handsome and incredible human beings. Those of you who have come out to the world and live your truth every day... you are a BAD ASS to the highest degree. Never let any of the naysayers steal your joy. You are doing exactly what you need to do! There are hundreds and thousands of us that will come to your defense. I’ve mentioned it before, and I’ll say it again ... you are the HERO and author of your story. Maybe the beginning and middle chapters weren’t so good, but you all have an opportunity to write a happy ending. I’m writing a happy ending for myself after many years of disappointments. We all have that power. I believe in all of you! You can do it! When one of us succeeds, we all succeed. Let’s show the world what we’re capable of. 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #style #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postop #postoptranswoman #sheathdress #booties #tights #blacktights #blackbooties

Every girl needs a little black dress ... or two or three or four... whatever it takes! 😉 So, I’ve hit 19 days postop and life is still good. The soreness is less every day and not bad at all. I’ve been able to take short drives in the car, so I don’t feel so isolated. Tomorrow, I am going to make it back to church again. I just can’t forget my donut pillow. That’s it for my recovery progress report. I’m still soooo happy I did it. It feels amazing and my dysphoria is virtually gone. Enjoy your weekend! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #vaginoplasty #tgif #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postoptranswoman #postop #littleblackdress

Quick movie review... Rise of Skywalker did not disappoint! It was a fitting ending to the saga. Several of the plot points introduced in Force Awakens were more fully developed, which was nice. Learning more of Rey’s origins was super cool. There was even a surprise cameo. All around, it was very good and I recommend it! It was a fun ride! Btw... I’m seeing it again today! TGIF! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #starwars #tgif #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postoptranswoman #postop

Ready for some Star Wars!!! I know, I have modest expectations after the disappointing Last Jedi, but I still have some hope that JJ Abrams created a satisfying ending to the Skywalker saga. I saw the original Star Wars movie in 1977 when I was 5... so the saga has always been a part of my life. It was like a classic Western, except it occurred in space. Boasting the best villain in cinematic history, Darth Vader, and the best music, by John Williams, the Star Wars saga was more than a movie franchise... it truly invaded our pop culture for the last 42 years. There are just too many famous quotes, characters and moments to mention here. To all of you fans out there, have fun and enjoy! Opening night is always special! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #starwars #starwarsfan #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #johnwilliams #darthvader #postoptranswoman

Good afternoon! Day 16 and still healing, but I don’t feel quite as helpless. I have managed to take a few short drives in the last few days. Of course, I had to go to the nail salon ... I felt so barbaric without polish. I had to remove it all before surgery. Anyway, getting out has helped me not succumb to cabin fever. Tomorrow I’ll venture out to see the new Star Wars movie. I’ll be ok as long as I bring my donut pillow so I can sit comfortably. Nothing else going on ... healing takes a lot of energy. Happy Hump Day! 🐪😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #leggings #postoptranswoman #vaginoplasty #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #gcs #postop

I thought I would try on last year’s New Year’s Eve dress to give a good year over year comparison. It was nice to put on something besides lounge pants and a t-shirt. I won’t be going out this year, though ... I’ll just be staying home with my daughter. Savanna will get all loaded on Dr. Pepper, while I enjoy a couple of drinks, as we toast the New Year. I experienced a lot of firsts in 2019 and had life changing surgery, but I have more fun adventures planned for 2020! 😊💕🍾🥂🎉 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #style #fashion #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #newyearseve #littleblackdress #transformationtuesday #transitiontuesday #postoptranswoman

It wasn’t that long ago I was counting down the days until surgery... and now it’s like “wow”!!! I can’t believe it was two weeks ago! It’s still a bit surreal. I wanted this for so long and now it’s a reality. In time, I will probably have a hard time remembering what my body used to be like. It already feels very natural to me, despite the soreness and swelling. That’s all for today. Happy Monday! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #postoptranswoman #postop #srs #gcs #vaginoplasty #selfie #blueeyes #makeup

I can’t wait to get back into my regular work wardrobe, but for now I’m ok with leggings and a t-shirt. I do miss my dresses, though. Maybe I’ll try to make it to church next Sunday... it’ll be a good excuse to get all dolled up. Anyway, who’s ready for some Christmas cookies! I think I’ll spend the afternoon making all of the dough for my snickerdoodles, butter cookies and gingerbread cookies. I’ll try not to eat too much of the dough. 😉💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #leggings #christmascookies #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postoptranswoman #postop

Happy Friday! Of course I’m not at work, so I have to think about what day it is. They blend together when you’re home healing from major surgery. Actually, since I graduated college in 1994, I’ve never gone more than two weeks without being at work... and I only took one two week vacay ever. Now I’ve been off two full weeks. It’s just strange. I’ve been blessed with excellent health throughout my life. I probably average one sick day for every two to three years... yet now I find myself off work for 6-8 weeks. So, if you wonder why I did my makeup and hair when I can’t even drive anywhere... I’m trying to maintain some sense of normalcy in my life. A little self care goes a long way. Anyway, I’m at day 11 and nothing new to report from yesterday. Progress is steady, but slow. See ya tomorrow! Have a great weekend! 😊💕 - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #gcs #srs #postoptranswoman #bottomsurgery #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #tgif #gendereuphoria #leggings

Day 10 of my recovery and all is well still. I’m getting used to my new body ... actually, I love it! When I get out of the shower and see myself in the mirror I like what I see now. It’s such a relief to not have a little reminder of my old life. Even with the swelling and soreness I’m thrilled with my new anatomy and don’t miss that “thing” I had. Truthfully, it feels as if this was how I was supposed to have been created in the beginning. Now, I can’t wait to start shopping for some bikinis to wear to the pool or beach! 🏖👙😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #gcs #srs #postoptranswoman #bottomsurgery #selfie #blueeyes #makeup

This is my life for the next 5-7 weeks... lounge pants and t-shirts. Day 9 of recovery and things are still going well. It’ll be nice when I can drive again, but I’m stocked up on food and Amazon Prime means I can get any other supplies pretty quickly. One observation I’ve made over the last week or so is that I will have to rewire my brain a bit. Since my pelvic area was rearranged, I have pain or sensations that I can’t figure out where they’re coming from. Some material is discarded during surgery, but a lot of it is in a different place now. It’s not exactly a phantom pain. Sometimes it feels as if I feel something on the outside, yet I know it’s on the inside now. Kinda strange ... I’ll get used to it, though. Happy Hump Day! 🐪😊💕 - - - - - - - - - #transgender #transwoman #lgbtq #mtftransgender #mtf #transmodel #transisbeautiful #girlslikeus #tgirl #ts #trans #transvisibility #blonde #hrt #transgendermodel #transsexual #transsexuals #vaginoplasty #srs #gcs #bottomsurgery #postoptranswoman #selfie #blueeyes #makeup #postop #loungepants #humpday

So happy to be able to take pics again. My cellphone camera was down and well had to completely reset my whole phone to make it work. Technology sometimes helps when it works, lol. I'm almost 3 months post-op and I'm back at work.
