Pictures I like

First and foremost....

MERRY CHRISTMAS or HAPPY HOLIDAY if you don't celebrate Christmas.

I just wanted to share a NSV with everyone. For most of my life I have hated myself and seeing myself in pictures. Today I saw two that I actually liked. I am going to post my before picture and two of my current pics (taken yesterday).

Not sure how to resize these or how they will show up. I think you can figure out on your own which is the before and which is the after pics.

I am 6 months and 4 days post surgery.

You look amazing Lisa! Congrats

I feel the same about pictures. I hope in 6 months I see a difference as well.

Thank you Penny.

I am sure you will see a difference. But I never thought I would ever feel good about myself and I am starting to. Best decision of my life.

Thank you. I don't know if I would go as far as beautiful, but definitely healthier looking. And I am ok with that. I am hoping the next 6 months will be just as successful.
