Before/During/After Photos!



Recommended Posts

I know some people don't want to post their pictures here, and that is ok. Whether it be internet identity related, or just too shy, I can respect that.

But for those of you who want to show us your Before/During/After pictures, post them here. You can always go back and edit your posts with more pics once the pounds start dropping off in a few months.

Lets start at the beginning, and see the change over time.

I'll go first :biggrin: I couldn't find any full length pics of me, perhaps I will have one taken of me soon so I can see the change better. Perhaps in the same pose/clothes too. Something to think about.

Until then, here's what I got.

I'm not afraid!

This picture is old however...... I was doing Atkins on and off for a few years, and belonged to a forum where I made myself accountable, and took pictures.

I have it labeled with weight and date.

When I went to see Dr. Gazayerli, I weighed in at 350... but I started the year at 362. My highest ever was 375.5.

Today I am 331.1, so I'm about 35 pounds heavier in this picture than I currently am.... but, it still reflects ME. (However, I have only had light hair ONCE in my life, and it's in this picture)

Okie dokie, here we go! This is not the most recent (from Jan) or complimentary photo, but I think it is a pretty good representation of how I look on average.

Okay ladies here is my before pic taken during a recent cruise to the carribean... you'll notice that I had to blur out my face and the reason for that is that there are certain people in my life who are very jealous, envious , manipulative and I need to be the queen of the show types !! and I dont want them to know that I am doing this, cause I know that they will try to turn into a " oh so that's the only way you could loose the weight" type of deal....I know you guys understand....

Hugs,

Karen

Jenny!

You can put your pictures in your "album" (click on your picture on your posting, and on the right, you should see "album"...... if you haven't created one, do it, and you can upload pictures there) once you've done that, you can use the URL code it gives you to post your picture.

You can also click the "go advanced" button on the window that you're posting on (at the bottom) and you'll get more options..... including a paperclip. Click on the paperclip icon, and you can choose a file from your computer to attach to the posting (which is what I did)

HTH!

Karen,

i knew there was a reason why I liked you !!!!! :tongue2:

Jen,

When you click on "Post Reply" at the bottom under the smiliey faces there is an option that says "manage attachments" it will ask you where to get the file from. If its on your computer click on the first section and search for the file, highlight and click open or attach, then just follow the prompts and this should attach the pic to your posting.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
