I haven't been on OH in months.. and I just realized I haven't posted in 10 months! WTF have I done? I'll tell you.. I have gained 20 pounds. I am so ashamed of myself.. and feel like crap. I don't know what made me sign on today, but reading posts on the forum, and realizing there others in the same situation makes me realize I need to do something before this 20 turns into 30..etc. I will not go back.. I want to lose more weight, not gain it back! I hope everyone else is doing well. I don't know what happened. I think it has alot to do with the fact that nothing makes me sick. I can eat sugar, fried stuff.. nothing makes me dump or feel sick at all. I know what I need to do.. get off my ass.. get some exercise, and eat what I'm supposed to.. instead of everything in site LOL
Wish me luck..
Post after Realllly long time on July 14, 2010 1:00 pm
So, I know I haven't been on this page in forever.. and it's probably because I feel like I'm not accomplishing much. I got down to 206lbs.. and that's it. I am still in a size 16/18 depending on what it is. I'm perfectly happy at this weight.. but my doctor tells me they want me to lose at least another 30-40 pounds. I know I should be smaller, bit I never started this trying to be "skinny". I just wanted to be healthy. I've gone from 356 to 206, and it feels pretty good..until I see all of the girls that are now a small size and then I feel like crap again. I have so much extra skin I can barely get my jeans on.. and that is depressing too. I know if I could get the plastics I need, I'd probably get down to a 12/14 easily.. but I'll never be able to afford it. I know I need to be excersizing, but I HATE it! I'm not going to lie and say how much I love it now that I'm smaller.. cuz it's not true!! LOL At my last appt, my doctor told me that I really need to "knuckle down" and try to lose as much as I can cuz it's already been a year...won't be able to lose much more...blah blah blah. Not every woman wants to be a size 6! I already hurt all the time in my hips and my ribs are always sore.. no padding from hugs or kids LOL. I know I am just rambling here.. but it really makes me feel bad coming on here and seeing all the "see how skinny I am" pictures etc when I got my surgery to be healthier. I am really not looking forward to my next doctor's appt in Feb, just because I know they will try to make me feel like I am a failure..again. So for now, I am just trying to keep my weight stable..haven't lost but haven't gained. I am a lot happier at this weight, but I really want to get under 200.. just to weigh less then my hubby LOL. Other than that, not much going on. I hope everyone else is doing better than I am.. and feeling better about themselves then I do. Have a great summer everybody!

It has been a realllly long time since I've posted. I've been so busy just living my new life that I haven't had time to update. I am now 9 months post op, and I'm down to 216 lbs. I can't believe it! 16 more pounds and I'll be down to 200 pounds... I haven't seen that weight since I was about 15 years old! It is so exciting for me.
Things are good, but I can tell that I am going to need some serious plastic surgery. My arms are just plain nasty, and I have a bunch of extra on my hips and thighs. I hate the fact that I'm down so much but still don't like the way I look. I'm working on it, but for now I'm just happy that I'm so much healthier and can do things with my kids.
A couple of "Woo Hoo" moments in the last few weeks.... I borrowed my husband's pj pants.. and they fit me, and I borrowed my 16yr old son's sweater and it was a little big on me! This is so awesome! I can't wait to get under 200, it will feel so good.
My doctor said my goal weight should be around 160, so we'll see where I end up. I am perfectly happy wearing a 14/16 top right now, but would like the bottom half to catch up LOL. Right now I'm in an 18 jeans, but they are getting a little bit baggy .
Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well and is healthy.. I'll update my pictures tonight.

Finally unstuck! on April 6, 2009 6:29 pm
I haven't posted anything lately because I was a little upset. I went back to work on February 23rd, and up until April 4th, I didn't lose a single pound! I don't know if it was just a normal plateau or what.. but it was very frustrating to say the least. I am happy to report that I am finally unstuck! I have lost another 8 pounds in the last week and I couldn't be happier. I'm glad I am sticking with it. I also realized the other day that I am 12 pounds shy of losing 100 pounds from my heaviest weight! I can't believe it, but at this time last year I was 356 pounds! I am now sitting at 268 and counting. This is so exciting.. I get tons of compliments from co-workers and family on how different I look already, makes me feel great and want to keep going.
I am finallt feeling more "normal" now. I don't feel like I can't eat anything and most things are not bothering me at all when I eat them. I haven't even dared to try sugar or fast food, mostly because Im scared of dumping. I think more than that I'm scared I won't. If I know I can eat something without getting sick, then I'd probably eat it. I don't want to go there at all!
anyway, I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Easter!

Hi everyone! I am 33 yrs old, and live in West sacramento, CA. I have been overweight my entire life. My earliest memory of being too big was at 13 yrs old weighing 135 pounds and thinking to myself.."If I never gain another pound in my whole life, I'd be perfect." How sad is that? I have been married for 16 years, and have 2 children. My son, Luis is 15, and my daughter, Angelica, is 9. My daughter is already over weight, and I'm hoping my surgery will help me to help her lose weight as well.
I was going through the Bariatirc program at Kaiser San Francisco, but after having my orientation in April, they told me it would be Sept or October before my 1st actual appointment. I finally was able to transfer to Kaiser in Fremont, thanks to some great information from another Fremont patient. I couldn't be happier. I am so ready to start my new life and be healthier. I know I will suceed, and am very commited to changing my life.
