Since everyone shares there before and after weight loss pics and I havent had my surgery yet I have decided to show you my BEFORE (skinny pic) and AFTER (current fat me pic). The skinny picture of me is from 2003 when I lost a ton of weight the wrong way. Starving and Tons of exercise. Then I starting binge type habits and gained tons of weight back and more. I am now 345 and climbing. Only a few weeks till I submit my insurance. I cant live another day in this horrid blob of a body of mine!

Aloha SMB-

There might be a silver lining in this cloud....my plastic surgeon likes to photograph patients at their heaviest in front of his blue screen, then as they lose, he retakes photos as 25, 50, 75, 100, etc pounds lost in the same positions- he then fuses them and makes "videos" of them melting then takes his after plastics photos. Ypu might not be one who needs plastics ( after losing almost 200 lbs, I definitely needed them!) but if you find such a PS to do this, it can be a very cool and inspiring montage. So ask around, even if you do not think you'll need plastics.

Another point- I have very few "fat" photos because I was so embarassed as I put on weight- but taking them gives you lots of comparison shots as you lose. I wore the same types of outfits and took the photos in front of the same door as I lost , it makes comparisons more consistent.

This too shall pass, the VSG has been a miracle for me, giving me my life back at 50. Continued great success to you! XOXOLori

I have some of those "formerly thin" pictures from about 6 years ago.  Now, a little over 9 months later, I'm almost back to the same place I was then.  You'll be there before you know it!!

I'm down in Columbia. We're starting our own reversal of the overweight South!

How fortunate that you have that as inspiration for your journey! I honestly have no idea what I will look like at goal. My last "thin" memory was a fleeting week i***** where I crash dieted down to 190 before skyrocketing up 100 lbs or so in the next 2 years. So I totally get ya. But I'm still jealous you have a visual goal!

Very cool pictorial.

You should post these again with your post-op weight loss pictures.

Best of luck,

Great idea...you will have skinny, fat, and skinny again! I have no idea what I will look like at goal because the last time I weighed 150lbs was when I was probably 15 years old (now I'm 39!) so it should be interesting.

My husband was also sleeved about 2 months ago and just recently had to get a new driver's license picture. His old picture was from 10 years ago and even though he's only lost about -35lbs he already looks years younger on the new picture.

Best of luck to you with your surgery!
-8lbs lost during the 6 month insurance hoop jumping,
the rest is since surgery.

Like aforementioned by a few of the posters, I've NEVER been skinny, so I wouldn't know the feeling!! However, I can only assume how frustrating it may be to be at one weight, and then find yourself far removed from it. So, I wish you WELL on this new journey that you're about to embark upon!! I'm sure you'll do well!!!!
