Thank you. I had a RNY just under two years ago.

I heart my avi pic too - I'm very proud of my shoulders and arms!

I hope you're right, but not sure! Thanks for saying that and making me feel better!

Ah man I would love to post my before and after but I don't like knowing that it's here forever. I worry about who may see my pic and it's rather embarrassing.

you can create a picasa or photobucket etc... post pics that way... delete after everyone sees example copied html share version of a random photo and pasted below. below that is the link with quotes so it wont work but you can see how it is formatted

I haven't been posting, but I'm here reading every day. My eating has been good since I made my husband hide the scale.

I have an appointment to do my plastics consultation on June 2nd. I'm shooting for an early November surgery date.

I have photobucket. That is what i used for another pic. I deleted it from my photobucket account but the pic was still showing up here so I asked Dottie to delete it.

I too thought that is would disappear after it was deleted from PB? So weird.

hmmm, mine did. it's a link... maybe you posted it NOT using html? because a link is a link and if the link to which it's pointing is empty, it should say that. Very strange.

Wow--everyone looks great. I don't even know if I have any before photos. I hid from the camera all the time. I will look when I get home, although I haven't lost much in the 8 weeks so I don't know if there is much difference anyway.
