Just a little face “transformation tuesday” for now. I’ll submit a full body photo in a little bit.
I grew up overweight. I had terrible eating habits as a result of being a shut-in and socially awkward as a child. At age 16, the same month as the photo on the left, I became a member of a study at the NYU Medical Center to see how the lap band affected people under 18.
After I got it, I started watching my diet and exercising more.
I’ve dropped 280 pounds over the last 4 years. From the left to right photo:
2009 to 2013
16 to 21
497 pounds to 220
Awkward to very, very happy.
