It's hard for me to see any difference in myself as well. I compare pics and they all look the same to me. I can see the difference in your pics for sure. Your face and chin are more defined and your neck as well. Great job on your loss, keep up the great work.


I think we all get some form of body dysmorphia along the way. We can’t see what everyone else sees and maybe it because we are our own worst critics. You probably look very different and don’t even know it! Thank you! And I’m still fighting the good healthy fight, lol

@ALFxRNY Your jawline is definitely more defined as well as your temple area. (I notice that area because I was so happy when my glasses no longer left dents down the side of my face! :))


lol! I don’t even see a difference in the temples but my sunglasses did start falling off of my face! It’s odd seeing the definition coming in!

I didn't see the change in my face for the longest time. Then, one day I just looked dramatically different. I remember I was in a restaurant restroom washing my hands, I looked up and for a second I didn't recognize it was me in the mirror.

My face was the absolute first place I noticed. When I glanced in a mirror, I saw my mother!

Your mama probably was a pretty lady. I look like an ugly relative I would just as leave forget. The Old saying was : Beauty,is skin deep, Ugly,goes through to the bone. Well some bones are starting to,peek through. Don't,like,my color, not jaundiced but,not,healthy either. I LOOK SICK! It's now Sunday and I have been👅 puking off-and- on for a day-and- half now. Like Judy Benjamin in Private Benjamin " This is NOT the ARMY I joined!"
HELP!😧🌊😧💦

I’m only 11 weeks post op now. I still don’t see too much of a difference but I’m down 57 lbs (32 since surgery). The left pic is the day of surgery, the right was yesterday (before putting on my makeup). I guess I have a neck and more defined cheekbones now, lol. You all look awesome

You guess correctly! Your face is really changing!

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
