My name is Sharon. I am 53 years old and live in Massachusetts. I was brought up with a frenchman for a Dad. In other words, have all the sweets you want, and they were always around. Mom, on the other hand, was always thin. I definitely took my Dad's weight genes. I have always been overweight. I did get to a reasonable weight and felt great in 1997, but that was then.

I had gastric bypass surgery August 11, 2011. By 2012 I had lost 90 lbs. 2013 and 2014 were a bit harder than I thought they would be. I'm lucky though that I had a friend who got me up and walking every day because I have only gained 23 lbs back. I want to become re-committed to myself this spring and figure out what it is that is stopping me from getting to my goal.

We live in MA. I work full time. I am a dog lover and have a black lab and yellow lab mix and a new addition - fox terrier mix.

I am lacking in the motivation department. I will need a lot of encouragement and support to make this work. This is why I am turning to this site for help.
