11 Months Post Op!! on May 31, 2012 2:49 pm
Well OH Family, As of the 27th of May, I am 11 Months Post Op. I am down 81 pounds and holding, holding, holding............. UUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!! I am starting to feel like I have failed myself. I was suppose to be at 100 pounds down by 1 year out. Don't look like that's going to happen. I have poor eating habits, I don't exercise much lately. I thought I was tired all the time because of school, but I graduated May 13th. YYYAAAAAAYYYY ME!!! But I literally have to make myself move off the couch lately. Does anyone experience this, this far out. I have not made it to one year and already I am struggling with trying not to gain weight. Maintenance is gonna be a Mother!!!!!!!!!!!!! I still try to get all the protein in .......between 80 and 100 daily. My caloric goal is 1200 and I try not to go over 1400.......... ( sometimes I do go over, slightly)!! But for the next 26 day I plan to put my all into it. I need some tips from some who have struggled!! HELP!! This time last year I was dreading giving up soda (DR PEPPER!!!!) I have not had any since June 15th or so. I dont eat a lot of sweets. I still count sugar grams per serving. I don't dump, much. I have dumped on sweet wine, and chinese food. The enemies...................... I need all the rallying I can get. Stay on me for the next 26 days........................ If ever a time I need you guys, it is now................. Hey I can take harsh criticism/advice!! 26 days and counting!!!

And why are family and friends telling me NOT to lose anymore weight. 189 is too close to 200 for me to be comfortable.......... I figured that if I had to be 100 lbs overweight to qualify for the surgery, wouldn't I want to lose 100 lbs. Or I am I expecting to lose it too soon...........
Love yall, sharon
P.S. I graduated with High Honors............ Full Ride Scholarship Babeeeeeeeeeee.............
Going to Jackson State University in the Fall............ Pray for Me
Now at 11 Months Post Op............
April 27th 10 Months Post Op on April 30, 2012 7:05 pm
Well OH Family, It's been a while. I can truly say that this has been one heck of a journey. There have been good times and bad times. I am 10 months out and 80 lbs down. I want to say only. But I wont.
I have not lost any weight in about 6 weeks. Fluctuating 3-5 pounds here and there. I have lost inches though. But I want to lose weight. I have found that I can eat almost anything. But Asian food do me really bad. I have found out what dumping is......... Thanks to General Tso chicken, chicken and dumplings and dense noodles and dense bread. Not a good feeling at all. It dont happen often, but it does not take long for me to know I have messed up. Other than that things have been going pretty good.
This is the last week of test at school........At the age of 43 I went back to get my college degree and 2.5 years later I am graduating in 2 weeks with my 2 year degree.......... Yeah Babeeeeeeee AND with a Full Academic Scholarship to the Jackson State University here in Mississippi. ( This school was my choice). Sonic Boom of the South Babeeeee!
This semester has really kicked my butt. Trying to maintain that 4.0 has pushed me to my limits. Probaly will graduate with a 3.98. I'll take that. Needed only a 3.5 to get the scholarship but I'll take that. YAY ME!!! Whew, Been a long time coming.
I put all of my focus into the books/schooling and neglected some things like: Gym, exercise, Moving my butt. All on the back burner. And this may be the reason for such a long stall. Plus I might not eat much, But I dont eat right either. I'm sorry.
Soooooooooooo, Who wants to help me get back on track???? Get all up in my face............. I need motivation!! Got friends and people in my corner, but they seriously think weight is just gonna come off just by breathing. These people really think weight loss surgery means breathing is burning pounds.............literally!!
I am determined that I will get to my goal of 100 lbs by June 27th 2012. That is 100 lbs loss in 1 year Post-Op! I just have to get back on track! So if you KNOW what I need to do, come with it!!! 2 Months 20 lbs..............Let's Get It!! Love Yall! Sharon

Overdue...............8.7 months out!!! on March 23, 2012 6:30 pm
Hey Fam, Sharon here. I am almost 9 months on the 27th of March. I should have blogged on the 27th of February, but I have been soooooo busy with school and all. School is kicking my butt this semester. BIOLOGY sucks. Especially when you have a YOUNG teacher with too much ZEAL and too much BRAIN!!!!!!!!!!!! UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGHHHH!! The man is a walking/talking book. UUUUUGGGGHHHHH!!! Did I mention that I hate Biology???? Well it makes my head tired!! I will be 46 this year, and I dont care about how many times you can break down a molecule........ My major is Early Childhood Education. HELP!!
I am now at 78 lbs lost..........8.7 months Post Op........... I have been in a terrible stall for about 2 months!! The same weight loss/regain. I am eating like a mad person and I have not been going to the gym. I still dont eat sugar. I have not had any soda since before my surgery and I have been wrestling with the same 2-3 lbs for over a month now. But I am now a believer in losing inches. I mean I went from a tight 14 to a loose, loose 14 while fluctuating with the 2-3 lbs toggle. I can even put on, zip and button some 12's. They might be a little too tight for my taste, but I bought them anyway, because 12's here I come.
Back in February when I flunked the first test(BIOLOGY) that I have flunked in the last 3 semesters it sent me spinning. IIIIIIIIIII am the one with the 4.0 GPA, IIIIIIIIIIIIII dont get FFFFFFFFFF's!!! WHATS REEEEAAALLY GOING ON!!!!! HELP!
But this really sent me into a little depression. I study so hard that I started to neglect my NEW lifestyle and got off track! But at the same time I was still tracking on MYFitnesspal.com. (One of the greatest APPs) I am at this poing maintaining a 3.89 GPA. I am a member of Phi Theta Kappa, (National Honor Society). Yay Me! If I maintain a 3.5 or higher GPA I WILL get a Full Ride Scholarship to the University I plan to attend in the Fall( Jackson State University)!!! Everything paid, no out of pocket money required. So this why I am soooooo stressed. I dont need anything threatening me recieving this scholarship. Oh and I graduate May 11th or 12th. YAY Graduation.!!
So I know what the solution is. More Water, more Protein, More Exercise, More rest, less stress, and let the chips fall where they may. maybe!
My original date for my goal was 1 year out. Now it is 10 months out. I decided that I want to be at 168 by April 28, 2012. This will be the date of My 25th Wedding Anniversary. YAY 25th!!! Soooooo I have 34 days to lose 22 pounds.
Sooooooooooooo OH family............... HELP!! All suggestions are welcome. I know I can lose inches, but I want to lose pounds. Please send the suggestions my way.
Love You All ............I might not blog oftern, but I do snoop and read the blogs almost everyday.
So Proverbs 3:5-6 everbody......................... Smooches! God is still GOOD! Sorry so long. sharon

Hello Friends, My name is Sharon. I am from Mississippi. I am a 44 year old wife of 24 years. Mother of 3 sons, And G-ma of 5!! 3 G-Sons and 2 G-daughters. WOWEE! We are empty-Nester's. My youngest is 21. After he was born is when I started gaining the weight. But I was "Tall & Big Boned" so they said, But what the heck am I now. I am 5'8 and I weigh 268 lbs. "NOT ACCEPTABLE" I suffer from high blood pressure( meds everyday) Sleep Apnea ( Uuuuugh) And did I mention I am 5'8 268lbs. The heaviest I have been in my whole life. And the people who tell me I wear it well, their ankles and legs and back are not hurting. One wake-up call was last year when I bought a pair of boots and I could not zip them all the way up, they only went mid-calf. WTF!!!! Who let the dogs out!!
I moved back to Mississippi 4 years ago. I can tell you now, there are no hungry people in " The Sip". Everywhere you go there is FOOD! FOOD! FOOD! GOOD FOOD! I have been thinking about the RNY for years. Oh! Did I say I am a procrastinator. With a capitol P. I am working on getting better. I have friends who have had the surgery! These girls are doing Great! and looking Great! I made my mind up years ago. I stepped out on this journey 1st week of March 2011. I Asked my PCP for a referral and it was sent out the next day. Because last year he would not give me the O.K. to do any weight lost pills, meds are anything outside of regular dieting and eating good. So he knew that I meant it and my mind was made up. I heard from Tricare the next week. Got the O.K. letter from Tricare for the Weight loss clinic program. First point of the road on my journey. But at least I am on the road.
I have had at least 5 surgeries so I am not scared of surgeries. Am afraid of needles, but not surgery. Ironic, huh! And I don't do well with pain. But with you guys and my friends and support at home, I feel I can do this. So keep posting because believe me you might not be helping everybody but your are definitely helping somebody. "I AM READY"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LEGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!
Remember: Proverb 3: 5-6 Trust in The Lord
