My First Progress Pics (updated 2/10)

Postby Bandit » Thu Aug 09, 2007 10:27 pm

Some of you would know that I had gastric banding in January this year.

I've been giving my all to this weightloss for 6 months now. I've been eating well (with the occasional treat) & hitting the gym 3x a week, & here are my first progress pics.

I am hoping to reach my ideal weight - for the first time in my life! - by the end of the year :)

First pic is pre-surgery
Second is 2 months post-op -18kg
Third is 4 months post-op -27kg
Fourth is 6 months post-op -36kg

Also some face shots to compare January to now.

Wow! You look amazing. Thanks so much for sharing :) I've enjoyed reading your contributions about the lap band surgery. It's certainly very interesting hearing from someone who has had it done first hand.

what's most noticeable is the smile that's slowly starting to appear in the pictures - looks like you're gaining a lot of confidence as you progress. You looked pretty before, but now... wow! That's awesome :D :D :D
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I wish I had done that kind of deliberate progress pic as I went!! it shows such a drastic change and so visual!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
