Default 6 months post op, here 's what I look like then & now!

Yesterday was my 6 month anniversary from weight loss surgery on May 17th, 2002. I have lost 98 lbs and now weigh 180 even. I went from a size 26W to a 14/16. I eat about 1/4 cup of food and I'm satisfied with it. Here are my updated before/after pics:

*thumbs up*
In an age of nothing, at a time when we stand at the brink of our own destruction--Strengthen your belief, in yourself, in the future of humanity, in the things of this world which cannot easily be perceived. Awaken that which lies dormant now within your soul. Re-ignite the flame of your conciousness, and measure the strength of your conviction. Reveal the lie, renounce your hatred. Seek, find, and embrace the truths you are fortunate enough to discover. Cherish them, use them to anchor you in the sea of chaos that is the world we live in. When twilight crawls near, when you are pushed to the very limits of your soul, when it seems that all you have left are the dead remnants of the fabric of your life -- Believe.

Wow. Fabulous....

What surgery did you have? I am new to this board, and not sure if you had told everyone previously.

I am planing on getting the Lap-Band Surgery in the future(insurance/doc pending)

Angry WOW!

Wow KC you look fantastic!!!!!

I too have been told I need to have some type of weight reduction surgery but my insurance won't pay for any of it, even though my cardiologist has deemed it medically necessary. Tell us more about your surgery. I know what gastric bypass is and band lap, but not roux-en-y. Please tell us more.


With HIM all things are possible.
