Just had to share these pictures
First I am at my heaviest. This is some where around 382 pounds possibly heavier.
Next we have me still in the hospital before surgery. I am 325.5 at this point getting ready to have vertical gastrectomy.
Last but not lease here I am at 11 months after my vg surgery. I weighed in at 201 for my 1 year picture check up.
It is strange to see these pictures. I always knew I was big but to see me at my heaviest is just amazing. I never saw myself that large. In the first picture you can see my necklace is tight, I mean tight. In my 1 yr picture you don’t see my necklace because it is hanging below my shirt. I never take off my scuba diver necklace and can remember at one point at my heaviest I thought I was going to have to take it off due to circulation. This is what I have been going through during my life. Just a few days ago I did not see 200 on the scale. I am below that now and it is amazing. I never thought I was going to see under 300 again let alone under 200. This is why I believe highly in WLS (weight loss surgery) and would recommend it to anyone that is obese. Sure there are risk and you need to do your homework and research before selecting a surgeon but at this point my life has been extended due to my weight loss. Just had to share these with everyone.
