    HELP - HAIR THINNING!!!

    CAN ANYONE TELL ME IF THEY ARE HAVING THIS PROBLEM? MY HAIR IS THINNING AND FALLING OUT. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT? I AM GETTING MY RECOMMENDED AMT. OF PROTEIN SO I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY THIS IS HAPPENING. I AM HYPO THYROID THOUGH. ANY SIGNIFICANCE? I TAKE MEDS FOR IT. I DO NOT LIKE THIS AT ALL!!!!!!!!
  7. I WAS WONDERING - AFTER BEING BANDED IS IT MORE IMPORTANT TO CONCENTRATE ON PROTEINS, CARBS, SUGARS, CALORIES, OR ALL? I DO HAVE DIABETES TYPE 2 BUT HAD THE MEDS DISCONTINUED AFTER SURGERY. I AM AFRAID IF I DON'T WATCH CALORIES OR SUGAR, IT WILL GET BAD AGAIN? ANY ADVICE?
  8. LOOKING FOR JOHNSTOWN PENNSYLVANIA BANDERS FOR FRIENDS TO SHARE THOUGHTS AND INFO. I AM TO BE BANDED 1/17. I AM ON DAY 2 OF MY PRE OP DIET. THANKS
  9. HAS ANYONE FROM PENNSYLVANIA HAD THE LAP BAND DONE BY DR. KIM MARLEY? IF SO, HOW DID YOUR SURGERY GO AND WHAT DID YOU THINK ABOUT THE SURGEON? THANK YOU!
  10. HI YA ALL! - I AM 3 WKS. POST OP AND WAITING FOR MY FIRST "FILL". I FIND THAT I CAN EAT PRETTY MUCH ANYTHING I WANT. I AM HUNGRY EVEN 2 HRS. AFTER EATING. I HAVE BEEN EATING MORE THAN THE 3/4 CUP AT MEALTIME TOO. I AM SCHEDULED FOR A DR. APPT. NEXT WK. AND THEN HOPEFULLY A "FILL". I AM AFRAID I MAY NOT HAVE LOST ANY WT. THIS PAST WK. I DON'T FEEL LIKE I DID ANYWAY. I HAVE HAD FOOD GET STUCK AND PRETTY MUCH JUST WAITED AND SUFFERED IT OUT. DID I LEARN MY LESSON - THE ANSWER IS "NO". SOMETIMES I FIND MYSELF EATING TOO QUICKLY OR NOT CHEWING GOOD ENOUGH. I AM USUALLY STARVING THAT IS WHY. I DEF NEED SOME RESTRICTION IN MY BAND. I LOST 4 LBS. 1 WK.. AGO AT MY DR. VISIT. - TOTAL WT. LOSS IS 30 LBS. BUT THAT ISN'T MUCH WHEN YOU NEED TO LOSE AT LEAST 100 LBS. I WAS JUST BANDED JAN. 17 OF THIS YEAR THOUGH. I AM GETTING A BIT TOO ANXIOUS TO LOSE THE WT. FASTER. I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT I CANNOT GET OUTSIDE TO WALK TO GET EXERCISE. I DO HAVE FIBROMYALGIA WHICH RESTRICTS ME FROM BEING ABLE TO EXERCISE MUCH TO BEGIN WITH - AS THE PAIN IS UNBEARABLE EVEN IF I DO A LIL WALKING AROUND WALMART SHOPPING. BUT I GOT TO GET MOVING. I AM GETTING A LIL DISCOURAGED. IT IS JUST SO DARN BORING TRYING TO DO SOME EXERCISE INSIDE THE HOUSE. BUT I WILL NONE THE LESS. I CAN'T GIVE IN TO BOREDOM OR DEPRESSION. BUT GEE WHIZ I SURE HOPE SPRING GETS HERE SOON - SO I CAN GET OUTSIDE AND GET SOME SERIOUS EXERCISE AND START TO FEEL A LIL BETTER ABOUTR MYSELF. ONE THING I MUST SAY IS THAT WITH THE LIMIT ON WHAT I CAN EAT NOW AND THE TINY PORTIONS ALLOWED - IT SEEMS THAT EVERYTHING I EAT IS SOOOOO DELICIOUS. THE FLAVORS OF EVERYTHING JUST POUR OUT. ANYONE ELSE FEEL THIS? THIS IS A GREAT FORUM FOR VENTING. THANKS FOR READING AND LISTENING TO ME RANT ON AND ON. XXXOOO
  11. I USE A C PAP MACHINE WITH A FULL FACE MASK AND I CANNOT sleep WITHOUT IT. I HAVE USED IT FOR YEARS. IF I LOSE WT. AND NO LONGER NEED THE C PAP - I WAS JUST WONDERING IF THERE WILL BE A PROBLEM TRYING TO SLEEP WITHOUT IT?

    Calorie intake??

    What do your 3 meals consists of and snacks? That isn't many calories. The protein shakes will boost it a little. Sounds like your gettin alot of protein so I am curious what you are eating with so little calories. Take care.
