Gastric Bypass Surgery Progress Pictures



Recommended Posts

E9843D91-495D-43DA-87BA-AD36BA4F81FA.jpg picture in the left was me 2 days ago and picture on the right was about 2 years ago. I am close to 100 lbs down from when I first started this wls journey. I haven't worn my skates in almost two years and I can't believe how much I missed it and how different I look now from then. I'm still losing but I am down to my high school weight which for me was not seeable if I didn't have this surgery. I am only 3 months out and I can see myself getting to my goal weight before my year post op date. This is an amazing journey and I can't wait to keep moving towards my goal.

I had a gastric bypass in April. I'm down over 70lbs since surgery and I feel great. Tonight I went public about the surgery so I felt like I was coming out. I feel good about the progress. The comparison is crazy to see. Because you don't see it day to day.

I'm not sure that they are flatteringly good but my wife says that there are clear differences.

Feel free to offer your 2 cents worth!

Thanks for the positive feedback.

I fail to see the differences that others glean from the photos.

I see my successes in the several NSVs I've mentioned elsewhere.

Only did the photos because my surgeon, my dietitian and my exercise therapist said to try a monthly or bi-monthly set of pics.

Totally understand what you mean. I have lost 50lbs from a sleeve weight of 233 lbs. I don't see the difference and sometimes I wonder if people's reactions to my weight loss are genuine. My brain hasn't caught up with my body. I have a picture or 2 from before months WLS but none after because I have hated getting pictures taken for so many years. When I gather the courage, I will do side by side pics and maybe I can see the loss. You, sir, are dong the right thing by photo documenting your progress.

In your pictures, anybody can look at them and easily see that you have lost a substantial amount of weight!

I'm not disbelieving you ... my wife and family say the same thing.

My brain is in a "jet-lag"-like state of having a morbidly obese reflected image in the mirror for over 25 years.

New to this site. Hope I’m “replying correctly”
Just wanted to say that my husband and I are both just getting started with this process and he mentioned that he was worried about losing muscle mass. He’s always been kinda built/buff whatever you wanna call it. Lol. Anyway I googled it and stumbled across this picture of you and sent it to him. His response?
“I’m in”
Your photo made a difference. Thank you.
Congratulations on your success. You look wonderful!

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
