My iPhone facial ID stopped recognizing me! I don't know when exactly this happened because I'm always wearing a mask so I always have to use the passcode, but a few times I've tried to use a banking app that uses the same facial ID and it says it doesn't recognize my face, so I tested out the phone itself, and it DOESN'T THINK I'M ME!!!

I didn't think I looked that different, but apparently technology does. I will have to figure out how to reset it.

Has this happened to anyone else?

Thanks! I wasn't sure if I just was so messed up from maskne and lines on my face from the mask or if the app just failed. But my initial guess was losing 95lbs

Don’t know about you but I think this is the best non scale victory ever - even though it’s hindering you being able to access secure apps.

Just think your phone is seeing that you have cheek bones, fewer chins, less droopy eyelids, improved facial definition, etc. even if you don’t yet. Time to look more closely in your mirror I think @lizonaplane.

It’s wonderful. Love it.

Lol. I had to reset mine recently as well.

my husband took a photo of me and the boys while we were at dinner tonight and it was a little shocking. I didn’t realize that I looked like that 😂 my reaction was “omg is that really me?!”

Yep.

Further, at 9 months post-op, I renewed my passport early (2 years before it was set to expire) because it was getting annoying/stressful having to explain that i was in fact me at airports.

Im 3+ yrs post op now and a few months ago, I renewed my driver’s license and its nice to not have to explain my appearance to the people at the liquor store when I get carded. Though getting carded at all is an NSV in itself cuz im like 50 years old. Lol.

Congrats, and enjoy the broken face!

Last time I lost a lot of weight I got a bit of grief when I came back into the US from Colombia. I have updated my passport since then, but it was again at a higher weight. It's new, but at a higher weight. I didn't have any issues coming back from Mexico a month ago, but I also have Global Entry now, so maybe that helped?

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
