The Before, The Bad, and The Ugly


I thought that since my surgery is set for tomorrow, I needed to post some before pictures.  I am not happy with the looks of these, but I do feel that they are a fair intrepretation of how I currently look.  I am really hoping that this band works for me.  
 

I have also taken some Amy W. style pictures, but I am not brave enough to post them here.  Maybe if I get skinny, I won't have any trouble comparing. 

I am nervous about tomorrow, but also excited.  My mother will be arriving this afternoon to help me (by cooking for my family I bet... she probably thinks I will starve them).  It is my last day at work.  I hope that I stay busy, although the Court that I had scheduled got continued so I have a free afternoon.  That probably isn't a good thing as my mind tends to wander. 

I purchased a Wii Fit for my birthday.  I have been very happy with what I have done with it.  It seems that the whole family is having a good time with it.  I am thinking that the stepping will be good post surgery to get me moving as I don't want to try and walk and get to far and have trouble getting home. 

I will leave you all today with the photo of me that truly influenced me that I needed to do something about my weight.  This picture has not been seen by anyone except my husband and myself, but I think that it is a great before intrepretation.  This picture was taken last summer.  Yuk!

Good luck to you tomorrow! I will be thinking of you and I hope for a quick recovery! Good for you for taking the before pictures. I too have many yuk photos to make me cry. This is the beginning of your new like!

You will be so glad that you took these photots. It really helps too if you take some measurements, this way when the scale isn't moving as much as we'd like you can see that you really have lost. Good luck!!

Good luck with your surgery. I didn't actually take before and after shots - you are going to be so happy you did. Some days I have trouble seeing a difference (after all I see myself everyday!) and having the evidence would be awesome!!
