Over five years, Sharee lost 121 pounds. She was featured on People magazine in their yearly “Half Their Size” issue. She writes daily on her Funeral For My Fat Tumblr. Here is an interview with her that is really nice.
For a lot of people who lose weight, there is that extra skin, but after a year or two, it usually snaps back. I understand Sharee’s decision to have the surgery, and while I was reading her blog, the recovery time didn’t seem like it lasted three months. Her swelling went down quickly and it felt like within just a couple of weeks, she was back into her routine. I’m just terrified of surgery, so I would rather deal with extra skin flopping around than go under anesthesia.
