18 months on T

It’s been a minute, but I’m back!  August 12 marked 1 year and 6 months of testosterone.  I did another facial hair experiment of growing out my beard for 4 weeks, and managed to get an adolescent Amish-style beard.  By February, maybe I’ll have a few mustache hairs!  (Pics after jump.)

At this point in my transition (top surgery done, testosterone well underway), I’m not anticipating any major changes in the immediate future.  The most I can do for my physical transformation and well being is hit the gym regularly.  I’ve been trying the 5×5 Stronglifts program, and I’m hooked.

It’s finally really satisfying for me to look at the comparison pics.  The changes are undeniable.  I am universally and freely called sir.  The awkwardness of adult adolescence has mostly passed, even if there’s still plenty of room for continued change.

Here’s how far I’ve come in 18 months:
