The less-fat boy returns   4 comments


It’s been a while.  I hate to let the blog go so long without at least a check-in, but I’ve been busier’n shit.  For me at least.  Seems I went out and got me one of those “life” things I’ve been hearing people talk about.  It’s pretty cool, lots of friends.

So as of today I am officially in better shape than I ever have been.  No, seriously.  My blood pressure is great, my anxiety is under control, and I have dropped 2 pant sizes and a shirt size since the beginning of the year.  I even had to buy smaller underpants.  I started walking right before Thanksgiving last year and right now I’m up to a mile and 1/3 at least five nights a week but usually six, sometimes seven.  It’s pretty small numbers, but it’s working and I gotta start somewhere, right?  The plan is as soon as my job is over I will start riding my bicycle a couple of miles in the morning while still walking at night, except I tried that yesterday and the bike kicked my ASS.

Sarah and I told our boss about my transition.  That went really well.  If nothing changes job-wise in the next few months, I’ve decided to go ahead and come out at work.  There’s HRC stickers all over the place there, so I’m not really worried about that.  Unless I don’t go back this summer, then that’s a whole ‘nother can of worms.

My man cave is officially finished.  I was looking around it the other day and realized I’d recreated my college apartment.  It’s just missing a dartboard and someone puking in the sink.

I have a beard.  Sort of.  I’ve let it grow for almost a week and a half and it’s super scruffy under my chin.  It hasn’t looked like it’s gotten any longer the last couple of days and it still doesn’t photograph well, but it’s there, dammit.

That’s pretty much it – things are going well.  Still a few hurdles to go, but I’ll get there.

  1. Sounds good. You seem so much more happier. This is the first time since we’ve been friends, that you seem to be really happy. It’s nice to see and I am happy for you and Sarah. We need to make plans to hang out in the man cave and have a couple of beers. 🙂

  2. Well, I’m still cynical, a little bitter and I expect disaster to strike just anytime. But I’m dealing with all that better and I’m getting things out of life I never thought I could have. I’ve noticed I give less of a fuck what people think the further along I get. It’s AWESOME. You know, if I wanna go feed some pretty girl a line of BS, I go do it. It doesn’t matter what she thinks of me, she always smiles (unless she’s a complete bitch) and everybody walks away happy. Yup. Much happier.

  3. Hi, I just wanted to let you know that I stumbled upon your blog via pinterest and I think it is really amazing. I pretty much read it all in one sitting, haha. My partner is officially starting the ftom transition next week. I’ve gotta say, I had a really hard time when my partner first told me. But I’m over my temporary freak out and I just wanted to say reading your blog and others like it really help me out with knowing what to expect. So yeah, I just wanted to let you know that I loved reading about your journey and I’m so, so excited for the day that my partner can be comfortable in his own skin the way that you seem to be now.
