hey guys i just wanted to let you all know that i finally settled on a surgeon and a date. i am going to be having top surgery in Sept of 2007 with Dr. Garramone in Plantation FL. though i do have some reservations about the distance inwill have to ride in a car. i think that he is the best option for me. the surgery has been estimated at 5,500 dollars and i will have to be in the area for a max of about 14 days.

i consulted with Dr. Fee in Jacksonville but he since then has decided that he is no longer doing FTM top surgeries.

i also sent pictures into Dr. Fiala and i was given an estimate of 8,500. I felt that this quoate was unreasonable. the ladies at his office however said that this is an inflated estimate and at the time of physically going to the office and consulting a more realistic figure would be provided. though the office staff girls are nice and warm they aren't really the best about getting back with you and meeting time lines they set. for example i sent in my pictures before thanksgiving and they told me about three diffrent occasions that i was suppose to get the quote, i didn't get it until friday of last week.

Dr. G has always gotten back to me in a timely maner and i have had to pleasure to speak with him personally on several occasions. he has done a surgical roatation in a gender center and he wants to make himself someone in the FTM niche. i have seen a few pics of his work and they looked pretty good. i am looking forward to meeting him in person and having surgery.

Hey guys-

I just recently found this group in my search for info regarding trans issues. I am a graduate student at FSU majoring in Urban & Regional Planning and International Affairs. I have been involved in the LGBT community as a lesbian since i came to college, but never liked the term because it implied that i identified as fully female. I recently broke up with my girlfriend of 2 years for issues unrelated to my gender identity, but am now taking this time to seriously consider transitioning and shaping my body to fit the image that I have of myself in my mind. I would really like to meet other transguys, but probably won't be able to come to meetings regularly until after I get back from christmas break.

The questions that I have right now are about the process of beginnning my transition. Who are the doctors in/near Tallahassee who will prescribe and monitor testosterone and what have your experiences been? Has anyone had top surgery yet and can share their experience? What are the requirements for name/gender change in the state of Florida?

You can reply to this site or email me at songrighter714@gmail.com or add me on myspace at www.myspace.com/songrighter.

Thanks in advance for your support and I look forward to possibly meeting you all.

I hope everybody had a good Thanksgiving.

Okay, this week:
- meet up Wednesday night?
- anybody want to go the FUQT Film Fest thing Friday night?

22 November 2006 @ 03:38 pm
Here's the flier for that FUQT thing. (The kid that drew the flier, by the way, is a really, really cool zinester and artist that lives in Central FL.)

The dance party night is the same night I'll be having my parade party, so that's out for me. But I do think someone should take down some of our fliers.

Hey y'all:

It's Thankgiving week, so I figure that Wednesday night won't be such a good night to meet up. Anybody want to get together tomorrow night, or is everbody scattered? Let me know.

I would like to say thanks to everyone that came for the first workout meet up at my house. i think it went really well and i am so glad that you guys are interested in getting stronger.

i am in the process of looking up additional exercises and aquiring more weight equpiment for our use.

I had a great time and i felt good about working out with everyone, it was motivating.

we are really the best about order and stuff but just to give any guys on the list an idea how we work out is...

I have a set of 15 pound dumbells, 20 pound dumbells, and one 25 pound dumbell. in addition to that i have a home gym.

Initially i wanted to have a chest workout group but after the first meet up i think that doing whatever one feels comfortable doing is more appropriate.

we get together for about 30 minutes at my house and you have the opportunity to workout whatever you want and you have your buddy's there to either motivate you through a set or to work the set through together.

i am going to make sheets with exercises on it so that if you want to keep track of what exercises you're doing, how much and how often they will be available.

i think that twice a week is good... i will be working out everyday so if anyone is interested let me know when you want to come over and i will gladly wait for you. the days i will set for us to work out will be TUESDAY 6:30 AND WEDNESDAY 6:30 before the meeting.

next time we have a go at it guys i think we should stretch out a bit first and if it isn't hell fire and brimstone outside we will go for a brief 15 min walk to get the blood flowing.

based on what some of the guys have already expressed next time, i would like to go over some additional chest exercises that will help build some muscle to work up to doing puch ups and other chest exercises and also some ab exercises that will give you results without having to lay on the floor.

if anyone has anything they would like to work on let me know and i will research it and we can work on it together.

when starting out things might be hard and you might feel like you aren't getting anywhere but every little bit counts. every try makes you a better tryer and eventually it is just what you do. remember also it isn't the quantity of the work out it is the quality. i have found that by focusing on both the negative and the positive i do twice as much work in half as much time. the key is really finding what you like and wha tyou wil stick with and finding what your body responds well too. i am not master but i do have the desire to workout with other people and to help fellow brothers when and where i can.

again thanks for coming out and working out with me and i hope that at the very least we can do something once a week.
