3 Month Photo Comparions :)

  
This is me at 3 Months Post-Op.  Comparison photos, below.
  
  
Well Ya'll,
Here you have my 3 Month Post-Op photo comparisons.  Unfortunately, it was a bit too cold to wear the same outfit that I wore in the Pre-Op photos as they were taken in late October!  I will try to wear the same outfit in my next set of photos, so the real comparison can be seen.  Because of this, I'm afraid that you can't see much difference.  

But, I must tell you that the pants that I am wearing in my new photos, are a size 14.  Pre-Op I was wearing size 18's!  And I didn't realize how baggy my behind area is in these pants!  And here I thought I was looking good in these pants!  LOL.  My top is now a bit too big I think.  If you look closely, you can see where my top shifted to far to the side baring my bra strap.  And you would think that my DH would advise me of this so that I could correct it!  Yea right!!

By the way, this has nothing to do with this, but I just saw a commercial on a particular product which I had tried a few weeks ago, and decided that I just had to warn you about it!  The product is called V8-V-Fusion.  It is supposed to give you a serving of Fruit and Vegetables in each serving!  Well, I love V8 Juice so I thought I would try it.  I figured, it could help me get in some more fruit & vegetables without too many calories.  Well....I hated it!!  My DH had to drink it for me.  He didn't really like it, but he didn't dislike it as much as I did, and we hate to just waste money, so he drank it!!  Some may love it, I just wanted to give my opinion on it.


 
  
  

Give me the news, good or bad what you honestly think.  Can you see any improvement?  Well, I will be posting another post a bit later.  It will be longer though, so I decided to separate the subjects into separate posts.  So, till later.

Aloha My Friends  :)

Debi, you look great! There is clearly a difference between the before photos - your whole middle area is so much smaller! Your legs, arms and face look thinner too. Congratulations, great work!

Nicole said...

Yes I agree with Kristen I can tell! Keep up the great work!

Linda said...

Oh I can totally see the difference! Your arms and back and bottom are much thinner. Keep it up!

Mountain Laurel said...

Definitely a big difference, keep it up! It's hard to keep clothes that fit when you are going down, but it is a nice problem to have!

Athena's Melting said...

You look so great! Thanks for posting!

Girl Bandit said...

Andrew said...

The difference is very clear to me especially the stomach...Well done

workinprogress said...

I can definately see a difference - you look great :-)

Debi said...

Thanks guys!! I didn't really see any difference until I actually got them side by side, then I could tell a little bit. Too bad it is too cold to wear the bike shorts and tank top!

Thank you for all the support, we all need it, especially in the early stages when we are still hoping for restriction and we are fighting Bandster Hell!!

THE DASH! said...

It's the Amazing Shrinking Woman ... wow, you look fab Debi. I can really see the difference. Lovely!!
PS Nice pool area! Makes me want to go for a swim - its HOT here today..

Tina said...

you look wayyyyy smaller. Your boobs are now bigger than your stomach (I considered that a milestone for me)..and your behind is also much tinier. woohoo...

Tina

Debi said...

Thanks Cara and Tina!! I am hoping that my boobs get much smaller too!!

Yes, the pool is really nice, and if we do decide to move away, we will really miss the pool.

These photos only shows part of the shallow end. The pool in actually 52 ft long and about 23 ft wide at the widest point (shallow end) and 10 ft wide in the deep end. It is shaped so that it looks like 2/3's of an Acoustic Guitar.

You look amazing. There is quite a difference and it's all looking like you are doing quite well! Keep it up!

Debi said...

Thanks LD! My diet isn't all that good, but I have been doing the walking, which I think is helping in losing the legs and behind area!!

Dinnerland said...

Deb-- yes, I see a dif!!
You are doing great- hang in for more fills and this will get easier...xo V

Debi said...

Thanks Vanessa!! Soon you will be wanting more Fill, unless of course, your Doc is generous with them, like mine...NOT! LOL

Leslie said...

You are looking great!!!

Debi said...

Thanks Leslie!

Kinzie said...

Girl, I can definitely see "less" of you now than in the first pic. You are doing great!

Debi said...

Thank you Kinzie!!

Michelle said...

You look amazing. Great job. I hate mammograms and ultra sounds. I have been going since 29. My mom was diagnoised at age 35 my age now and passed at age 39 from breast cancer.. One of the huge reasons why I had the lapband surgery... Awesome pics.. I love before and after pics..

DawnB said...

Debi - I see a very noticible difference. You look great!

Debi said...

Thank you Dawn!! I can't wait to see your 3 month photos too!

Bonnie said...

Definitely can see a difference. Time to get smaller jeans. : ) Isn't that the best?

Debi said...

Yes, but I am a cheap scape when it comes to cloths! So I will wear them until they are almost falling off. Luckily I still have some jeans that are in size 12 as well!! So, until they are too big, then I probably won't be buying new pants. :(

kagead said...

Great job Debi! No question there is a difference- you are just too close to yourself to see it. :)

Keep it up girl!

kagead

Debi said...

Thanks kagead! I think that all of us see ourselves differently, and like you said, we are too close to the subject and can't see the change as well as someone else!!
