Here are some before/afters for me.

The first snow picture is 2/2009 probably around 275, not my highest. The second is actually 2/2010 around 150 - 15 pounds up from where I am now.

The first 3 Day picture is in 11/2009, and the second is last November - 11/2011. Right about the weight I am now at 135.

I have tons of more current pics on my phone, but none on my computer. This pretty much shows the change though.

Wow Angel, great job! I have a pair of pj pants that look just like the ones in your befores.

Mary, your arms look great! I bet you are way more comfortable now. I can see what you mean about the scar placement too, your doc did an awesome job. Wow!

UGH! Just came across a picture on the web from my last high school reunion. It was about six weeks after RNY and I had lost 30 pounds already... but was still so obese! Here it is compared to this past Christmas almost two weeks ago.

Good news is that we are having another reunion this next October!

Another Photo ID before/after lol again NOT even at my heaviest on the right, I think I was around 280 at the time (355 highest) and on the left is very recent.

Drivers license pics!

This is from yesterday (nearly 20lb up from lowest boooo) and a few months before surgery... I can't believe I was 75 pounds heavier than THAT at one point in time! Wow! I was "devastated" over regaining 20... until I look at where I came from. And that was not only not my highest, but a massive amount of shape wear!!! I'm still not HAPPY about my recent regain, but this helps my perspective!

20 pound regain or not, your curves are smokin'. Whatever weight you are now, it looks really good on you!

I totally agree, Mary, you look SUPER!!

I am sorry I've been absent lately...I've been reading but not posting. I have been doing pretty good, but today, I swear, I am like a bottomless pit. It alarms me how much I can eat when I put my mind to it. I made some rice to go with some chicken curry stew I made and I think I've managed to eat at least a cup and a half of it and maybe an additional 2/3 cup of the stew over about a 90 minute period... I am finished for the night, that is for sure.

My left arm is still causing me problems, and the areas that are at issue are in such a place that it is still difficult for me to tend to them myself. My arms are starting to feel different - I will suppose it means they are healing.

More later - I have to run right now.

Thanks all... to be honest, I don't SEE the twenty pounds on my body... I see it on the scale. Sad how the scale can make me feel like a failure while I can't see much difference in the mirror. Though, my smallest clothes (pants/skirts) are tight.

DANG!! That is exactly how I am! I am up about 10 or so pounds from where I wanted to stay. My measurements are the same in inches and my clothes still fit, BUT that number on the scale makes me feel like a big FAILURE!

That makes me think it could be muscle... If your measurements aren't changing and your clothes are fitting that means that any weight gain is probably a gain in muscle - which takes up significantly less space than fat!
