Just had to share these pictures
First I am at my heaviest. This is me at 382 pounds possibly heavier.
Here I am in the hospital before Jeff before vertical sleeve gastrectomy 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 vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery. I weighed in at 201for this one year weight loss picture.
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 weight loss surgery and would recommend it to anyone that is obese. Sure there are risk and you need to do some weight loss research before selecting a laparoscopic bariatric surgery but at this point my life has been extended due to my weight loss. Just had to share these with everyone.
