Before and After Lap Band Surgery - PICTURES ONLY



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Can I share a few new pictures? I am really struggling...was too tight and got a slight unfill and then had surgery....so I've gained just about 10 lbs in a little over a month. now, I do have ToM, but it's still not good.

I figure if I put these pics out there, it may motivate me to put down the freaking ice cream... (What's with me and ice cream???)

These are from a friend's wedding last weekend. I actually felt better about myself at her wedding than I did at my OWN wedding. I felt beautiful...I never ever ever feel beautiful...but I did last week.

As always I'm going to put my awful start photo...

Hey---sorry to write a book..feeling a little sad and out of control..must get back on track...

Here are some new before and current... I won't say after, cause I've still got a bit to go, but I think this shows big progress...

From a size 18w/20w to a 12...

Wow...you guys all look so good! :thumbup:

Here's mine. The ones in pink were taken the night before surgery (9/28/07) and the ones in the brown top were taken 2 days ago. The ones of my face are from a month after surgery and a few weeks ago. I've still got a LOT to lose but I feel soooo much better than I did 10 months ago!

These are my 5 month pictures. First pic is pre-op, second pic is 5 months post-op and 81 lbs down. Plus face shots. My 7 year old took the second face shot after a workout, sorry I look crappy. LOL

I am no spring chicken and proof that if you work (eat healthy & exercise) your tool (the band) you can go from Morbity Obese (250) with a BMI of 42.9 to Normal (145) with BMI of 24.9 in 12 months 3 weeks.

Do you ever have those moments when you look in the mirror and think, "Man, my head looks huge compared to my shoulders!" :)

I like this one--the first time I've looked at a recent picture and didn't have to pick up the before pic to see the difference.

Last summer approx 320 lb (long before surgery)

A couple weeks ago--about 255.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

      Looking for new sleeve buddies! I’m 1.5 weeks post op and things seem to be getting a little difficult! I actually WANT food again eghh! Honestly, I feel like you don’t truly understand this process unless you go through it! Don’t be shy, say hello and let’s support each other during this journey 🙂

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
