Hey everyone! I’m finding it hard to find someone who looks like me anywhere online, just to see what I may look like without all this fluff on me! I’m 5’1 and 246 right now. I have a really long torso and very short legs and I hold most of weight right in my belly area. My thighs, calves, arms, are pretty thin, but I also have a rather large chest, lol. Anyone have any progress photos along with how long it’s been since your surgery so I can have an idea of what to look forward to?! Thanks! I’ve made an Instagram for my weight loss journey @LookStraightVSG but haven’t posted anything yet! Would love to follow you guys too!

5'3". The 2015 photo is at about 300 pounds. The 2018 photo is at 157 last month. I'm still all boob. I'm at about 30% body fat. I haven't had plastics yet. I fence competitively and am nationally ranked in my age group.

Wow! I’m excited!! I’m really worried about loose skin because most of my weight is in my belly but hopefully it won’t be too bad! You both look amazing

Yeah Ive researches what the ideal body type looks like I was more just wondering what real people who have been through the surgery look like and if they have loose skin around the belly area, weight evenly distributed, etc! It’s tough finding VSG people my height on instagram!

It will vary greatly. I weight the same as @Diana_in_Philly but we do not look the same. Look closely at your body type for clues of how you will look after.

Aside from being well impressed! I had to giggle at "I'm still all boob". Hehe.
