I guess we are so led to believe that the only way to really succeed is wls.
I think that is a normal thought. I would guess (although I'm not sure) that there are many more people who have lost 200+ with the help of WLS than without. I happen to be one of the ones who did not have WLS to do it. Most people assume I have, many ask if I have and I even have to remind my DR that I have not had WLS on occasion. So like I said, I think that thought is quite normal and since I know WLS patients have to work their butts off to lose 200+ lbs as well, I really don't feel insulted by that.

Mine are in my gallery. I don't have any before-before photos, since those were long before LC anyway. There's about a 25-lb difference between my before and after, so it's not THAT much, but it's visible.

Oops! I hit reply when I meant to hit preview. Sorry! The before photo was taken in November 2006 with my first grandchild. The second was taken with my second grandchild in Sept. 2009. I have lost 119 lbs. and am not ever going to look for them! I love the way I eat now. I want to second what Brandy said in an earlier post. I originally lost about 90 lbs. on lowcarb in 2003-2004. I looked at this as a diet and did not change my bad eating habits. I started adding in carbs and before I knew it I was 5 lbs. heavier than I had ever been. Now this is my lifestyle and I am never looking back!

I also wanted to add how many of you look awesome in your after photos! Good job!!!

Don't get me wrong, I would love for someone to think I had wls!!! Not only bc it really would emphasize how much weight I lost, but also bc I'd love to be able to say, "Nope! Did it all myself!"

This is me in 2007 a couple of months after I re-started Atkin's. I weighed 175. Who knows what my actual weight was when I started at the beginning of Nov. I didn't weigh myself until right before Christmas.


This is me a few months ago at 120.

Kisha, you need to change your avatar as it does not do you justice.

I hope everyone is so proud of themselves, you are truly amazing and awe inspiring and for those of us that don't have pictures to post or won't post, we are just as inspiring too.
