Before and After Pics



Recommended Posts

Seeing all of your beautiful transformation pictures make me tear up with glee. You all are so beautiful! Even though I don't personally know ANY of you, I am proud of you, I am cheering you on. It's been very hard for me to accept being over weight. I was VERY fit and athletic all through my teenage years so I was used to being "skinny". Honestly the superficial thing I'm most excited about after I have my surgery in July is being able to have a thinner face. Sounds silly but I can't even stand smiling anymore because I look like a little dumpling.

Thank you guys for empowering me. Your hard work is not going un-noticed.

Hi everyone

I was sleeved on March 16

So I was a month out this past April 16

So far I've lost 23 lbs since surgery

I'm now on soft foods and I'm so glad to be one step closer to regular food. Haven't had any nausea or vomiting only thing is the constipation which my nutritionist said now eating more normal foods should help. I'm so glad I found this board you have all helped me prior to and after my sleeve.

Here are my pics so far- day prior to surgery and 1 month post oppost-248169-1429408106372_thumb.jpg

Same clothes left is the day I was discharged from the hospital (the lady was my nurse. Everybody thought it was funny how short she is next to me). The right is last month at my 5 month post op. At that point I was down about 90 lbs since surgery. I have dropped another 26lbs since then.

I never did a formal 1 year picture. This is a few months before VSG (date of surg 3/13/14 about 330#), and today (13 months post op) 130 gone. 20 to goal. Would love to have plastics someday..... post-196853-14295038970016_thumb.jpg

5'6. My goal is 175. I keep adjusting it though. Not sure where I'll settle in yet. I'm very pear shaped. Harder to lose on bottom.

Sleeved on March 4th, 2015. The first picture I was about 15 lbs heavier than I was at the start of my 2 week pre op diet. Have lost 30 lbs since surgery.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
