This is just the kind of thread I need today. When I start to get discouraged, I try to get out my before photos and not only look at the difference physically, but feel how different I am inside as well.

Thanks, Lisa for doing this!

I've lost another 10 since this photo but I don't have a new one scanned in yet. I'll work on getting a new one scanned in this weekend.

Not the best before or after.. I am down 75 lbs. Like you Michelle I had an unfill since Sept. I just went back 2 weeks ago but they started me out slow so I have NO restriction. Going for another fill on 2/9/05. I was banded on 8/12/03. Gained 8 lbs since being unfilled .

It's been 17 months for me since I had my Gastric Surgery, if anyone out there would like to chat, please feel free to contact me, It's nice to talk to other people who are going through the same thing. Here are my two pics. One was taken 9/22/03 the day before my surgery, and the second was taken 1/18/05. As of today 2/5/05 I have lost 264 pounds, and still trying to do more.

OK ... here it goes. As you can see, I don't do below the waist shots. I'm actually surprised that I found some "before" photos since the camera and I haven't gotten along for many years now. (btw: That's Laserjock in the other 89 jersey. He has been my support rock throughout this whole journey) I'm still a work in progress but I love my band!! :)

12/17/07 - I wanted to update my after photo....I'm now down 130 pounds and feel wonderful!

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
