Here's my before and after 100+ pounds...love the loss, hate the complications 3 years later.

What surgery did you have?
What complications, may I ask?

P.S. your arms are Amazing!

Thanks for the compliment on my arms...it's funny though, I think that's my worst feature, lots of excess skin...I think that might have just been great photography! Lol! Anyways my complications are almost too many to list: large hematoma with drain tube one week after sleeve surgery, severe reflux and GERD, 3 strictures with dilations, 2 hiatal hernias needing surgery, a myelotomy surgery, revision to bypass surgery, central line put in for TPN, then finally 2 weeks ago a jejunostomy feeding tube put in for nutrition. Whew!
Nails by Niki - thats unreal!! Was this or majority of all your complications due to the sleeve surgery? Im so sorry youve had so many different things happening to you.

Yes, I truly believe all of these complications are directly related to the sleeve surgery first and then the bypass surgery. I just had another surgery yesterday to replace the feeding tube. Ugh! Here we go once again...

-80 lbs and gaining confidence every day. I know it's weird to be wearing a coat in a progress pic because it adds bulk but I was feeling cute, which is something I haven't felt in a very very long time.

OK, I finally uploaded a couple pictures at the request of a friend. I still don't think I am to the "After" stage, but I am pretty damn close. Here is a picture from me that has to be at my highest weight. I didn't weigh myself back then so I am guessing that I was over 330 lbs:

It's funny, sometimes when I look in the mirror I don't recognize myself. But when I saw this picture, I literally asked who it was! I guess I am getting used to being this guy:

I actually just took that one today. I was looking for a new compression shirt and these new cold weather ones were out. Very comfortable, but over $50!

OMfrigginG!!!!

Seriously dude, you need to go on a show or in a weight loss success magazine or something!

You are the utmost perfect definition of what success stands for.

You had better be damn proud of yourself, young-handsome-athletic-inspiring-man!

P.S. shirt looks good!

@@heather5565 - lol, well now... you are my new best friend! I think I'll just invite you along with me everywhere I go to make me feel good about myself. I must say, you are looking pretty damned healthy yourself!

And I mean that in the least stalker/creeper way possible. :)

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
