Just 2 years ago this week I started a great adventure. I have posted about it before but today I give you the visuals. I wish now that I had taken pictures of my own before, during and after but I just didn't have the courage or the desire to photograph myself. So at my last visit to see the surgeon I asked for copies of their pictures of me. It still kind of makes me heartsick and nauseous to look at these but I need to get past that. So here they are:
October 6, 2009 - 6 months prior to surgery
March 23, 2010 - 3 weeks post op
June 1, 2010 - 12 weeks post op
September 9, 2010 - 6 months post op
December 7, 2010 - 9 months post op
October 6, 2010 - 19 months post opIt is with much joy and thankfulness that I am where I am today. I am 167 pounds lighter than I was just 2 years ago. The battle with food still rages but I am victorious many more days than I am defeated. All glory to God! I am thankful for my family and friends who have stuck by and supported me.
