Weigh-In … Two-Week Post Op Pics

Well, I hesitated weighing myself after the surgery, but I definitely weighed myself before.  I had read plenty about this type of surgery not really causing much of a loss and even many times a bit of a gain from all the swelling, so I hesitated to weigh before now.
Saturday I decided to go ahead and weigh myself and just face the facts…no matter how scary it is.  Facing the scale is not always fun, but it’s always good for me and I know it’s what keeps me in line.  Hiding from the scale won’t change the truth.  
So, my son brought my scale downstairs and I weighed first thing in the morning and was greatly surprised to see..
Current Weight:  161.0
Loss/Gain:  -5.5 lbs 
Yes, 161.0.  I weighed myself three times to be sure.  🙂  
I’ll write a little more another day about why I’m surprised, but kind of not surprised.  For now…I’ll share some pictures I took Saturday — exactly two weeks from the “before” pictures.  
I do have my binder on in these pictures, but I pretty much look the same without it.  Seeing these pictures really makes me realize what that extra bulge around my belly did (or didn’t do) for my figure.  This is also an outfit I would not have worn before without a jacket or sweater due to the belly bulge.  
Anyway…here are the pictures.  Left is before, right is after.  Enjoy! And thanks for checking in.  
P.S.  You’ll notice I’m still slouching a bit.  That’s actually as straight as I can stand right now.  I’m almost completely upright, but not quite.  Soon…  🙂
