The above is from Chris' blog. It represents the weight he has lost since his gastric banding. Chris is Dr Chris Oliver, an orthopedic surgeon in Edinburgh. His blog is about his life and the changes since the surgery. It is full of information for patients and physicians with links on the left side-bar to articles comparing the different weight loss surgeries and videos of the procedures.
The picture to the right is Chris doing the running leg of a triathlon. He writes in his post -- "At 118Kg the Edinburgh New Years Day Triathlon was my first Triathlon, I had not been this weight for 25 Years! The event consists of a 400-metre swim, 11-mile cycle ride and a 3.5-mile run. I finished slowly in just about 2:31:30 (last place). Splits including transition were 17:14 swim, 1:07:49 cycle, 1:06:26 run."
