Here is what I looked like the day before the surgery.
And this is what I looked like on Sunday, which was one month and one day after surgery.
I can see some differences. Until now, most of the progress I’ve seen has been on the scale, but looking at the photos, I can definitely see that I’m losing weight. The roll of fat on the back of my neck is noticeably smaller. So are my calves (although this isn’t really noticeable in the top photo). And my stomach? Looking good. My shirt looks much flatter (Footnote 1).
I am still waiting to see improvements in my forearms and under my chin, but I’m sure that will come with time.
1. It’s a 3XL Mickey Mouse polo shirt that I bought at the gift store at Animal Kingdom many years ago. I had stashed it under the bed many years ago, because it no longer fit but I liked it enough to keep it. As you can see, it now fits again. I have a white one too, and a few more 3XL shirts I had squirreled away.
