This is just the kind of thread I need today. When I start to get discouraged, I try to get out my before photos and not only look at the difference physically, but feel how different I am inside as well.

Thanks, Lisa for doing this!

I've lost another 10 since this photo but I don't have a new one scanned in yet. I'll work on getting a new one scanned in this weekend.

Not the best before or after.. I am down 75 lbs. Like you Michelle I had an unfill since Sept. I just went back 2 weeks ago but they started me out slow so I have NO restriction. Going for another fill on 2/9/05. I was banded on 8/12/03. Gained 8 lbs since being unfilled .
