185 well I've lost 75lbs
May 30, 2010
185 is what I weighted in at today and it's just so unbelievable. I'm in shock with my transformation. Its just very hard to take in. I'm loving the shopping, but I'm still wanting to buy things that are way to big for me. I love the way my body is looking and feeling and I'm feeling so confident right now. I know this feeling is going to last forever... I'm just fighting age now and not fat, it's crazy.
Now I do have to tell you that I'm regreting the braces.... my mouth is killing me, I have sores all in my mouth and my teeth are aching and there is no way to eat with out extreme amounts of pain. The price of beauty sucks.
Braces @ 40
May 25, 2010
2 days until I get braces. 40 years old and finally getting braces. for years I wouldn't smile and if I just had to laugh I would cover my mouth. I would take a pic because I was to asshamed of my weight and my crocked teeth. Now that I have lost so much weight, I'm ready to also change me teeth. I'm so excited and scared at the same time. I'm also doing this with my best friend, so we will both have braces. I'm so lucky and blessed to have her.
Everyday gets better and better... but somedays are still hard.

My emotional state is every where... trying to figure where my life will lead. I think my husband is nervous about my changing... I'm nervous about our relationship. He says that things will change with him and his attitude with me... but he falls right back into it after a few days of being wonderful he throws it all away. I know that right now is a scary time for the both of us and we will do everything we can to work through this. We have been married 21 years.... it's worth the fight. Weight loss is very slow but I did go down to 189 this week and that is exciting. I'm lucky to be losing 1 pound a week now. I'm walking 3 nights a week, but I know this isn't enough. I feel wonderful, my body feels and looks good. I'm happy right now and excited about my future.
70 Pounds Gone Forever!

Is it really possible that I have lost 70 pounds? I just can't believe it. Now I have 40 pounds to my goal and 25 to my doctors goal. Its crazy to think this is really me. I'm so excited about my life and where it's going.

Relationship issues at home and with friends... I don't want to blame anyone else, so I need to look at me and see if my personality has changed since losing the weight. I know I have alot more confidence and I carry myself in different way. I feel good and I know I look so much different. I can see it in peoples eyes that haven't seen me in a while, they are shocked and lost for words. I know this is all hard for people to take in, I don't think that people really want to see you to change. I feel that I want to look for new friends that didn't know me before surgery. I want to do new things and I want to go go go. It's all new and scary. One good thing is the scale is moving again and I'm affraid to say that cause the minute I say it, it will stop moving again.

Just kinda hurt by someone I love very much. I hope it's an isolated incident. We shall see! I could be ultra-sensitive. Also up set at this months weight loss.... it's very slow and I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing wrong. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
TODAY IS MY DAY! UNDER 200
Apr 21, 2010
Today I stepped on the scale and weighed in at "198" I completely skipped over 199. What a beautiful day! Who would have thought that Sherry would have been under 200. What a glorious feeling and all the glory be to God. It is truly my miracle. I'm beside myself... it wasn't a jump up and down happiness, it was a deep fall to my knees, deep deep sobbing happiness.
It was my moment that I hadn't had with myself yet in this journey. I didn't think it was possible for me. I won't let anyone tell me I didn't work hard for this, because I was on a mission and I did it. "I" did this for me, I did this for my children, I did this for my husband. I'm going to live a long and healthy life, I'm going to enjoy me, I'm going to feel good, I'm going to live again. It's never to late!
Loving my life...
Apr 18, 2010
I'm happier than I've ever been in my life.... I'm starting to love myself again. I've noticed that I'm no longer invisible to people. I feel good, my body feels good. I'm starting to get excited about my future. I've purchased new clothes and now I'm shopping in a regular store. I feel so healthy and love working out. I just want to be the best I can be. I'm glad I talked to the plastic surgeon this week. I know he is going to be a great doctor. Just really happy.
Life is becoming very good...

WOW.... Life is changing so quickly. I'm 2 months out and have lost almost 60 lbs and I feel like I'm changing so much. For the first time in a long time I have started receiving male attention and even though I have a wonderful husband I can't help but love it. I've always thought that once you are over 200 lbs men stop looking at you and you become invisible. I'm tired of being invisible... I want to be sexy, beautiful, and I want people to think I look good. Life is beginning again for me and I'm so happy and ready to embrace it.

Okay I'm doing so much better, every day gets better and better. I'm finally able to eat some salad and it's wonderful. I was really craving salad and now that I'm able to tolerate it I'm kinda over it and want something new to eat. Trying to find food is the a hardest. My brain has still not caught up with my new tummy. My family still doesn't see the difference in me as much as people I haven't seen in a while. I know things will get better. I just find it so hard to believe that I will actually lose 100 pounds total. Is that even possible. I've seen a 1000 people do it on OH but, is it really possible that I will do it. It is really hard to believe.
