    extreme hair loss

    My hair was falling out in big clumps for a while. It started about 4 months post op and didn't let up until about 1 month ago (I am currently 10 months post-op). I kept taking my Vitamins and Biotin. I only noticed that my hair stopped falling out when I got a really good hair cut. My hair was very thick and long. Most people didn't notice the hair loss but I knew because of the amounts of hair on my hair brush after brushing and the hand-fulls that kept coming out when I showered. I did develop a thin spot in front that was very obvious to me. But, the haircut definitely helped...or perhaps it was about the time that my hair loss was going to stop on its own (?). My hair stylist did insist that the haircut helped to take weight off of my scalp and in turn would help reduce the amount of loss. I don't know...my hair is no longer coming out in huge amounts!
  2. My NUT also didn't ban soup or Cereal with milk for that matter. I'm almost 6 months out. I have no problem with eating these. I think the fact that you're chewing and mashing up the soup ingredients along with the broth makes this different from eating solid foods and drinking fluids separately. That's just my opinion...I may be wrong but I have not had any problems so far. As time progresses, you will figure out what works best for you.

    Christmas - New Year Challenge

    Hi all! Sorry I didn't check in yesterday. I didn't make my goal...I'm at 206. The upside is the fact that I didn't gain weight over the holidays! That is a first for me.

    How bad is the nausea?

    I only had nausea for the first 72 hours post-op. It's how I react to anesthesia. Since then, I have not had nausea related to my surgery.

    Counter Addictions Anyone?

    I'm addicted to the attention that I get from men when I go out! That's just awful to say but I said it. I still haven't gone home with anyone...My confidence isn't quite there yet. But, it sure is fun to flirt...and kiss a little...

    Christmas - New Year Challenge

    Today is weigh-in day! I didn't lose any weight this week! And, with holiday parties and such I am getting nervous I won't hit my goal to be under 200 lbs. I will try my best! I haven't been exercising...I gotta get on that. SW: 211 CW: 208

    Christmas - New Year Challenge

    Ok...so I didn't quite make my Thanksgiving goal. I think I'll be at 210 by tomorrow and that means that on the Thanksgiving goal I'm 4 lbs short. I know where I went wrong and I'm determined to work harder for this next challenge. I'm going to use my weight this morning as my current weight for this challenge. I'm only about 10-11 lbs from getting out of the 200s. So here is my information for this challenge: CW: 211 GW: 199 This means I have to lose about 2.4 lbs/week.
  11. My highest weight was 272 lbs. On the day of surgery, I weighed 264 lbs. I now weigh 211 lbs. Total lost: 61 lbs! I'm very happy with that! My first goal is 180 lbs. At that point, I will determine if I want to lose another 20 lbs. I just started to lose some hair..in huge clumps! But, I do have a lot of hair so I think it won't be too obvious to others. I notice that the weight loss is getting harder and harder to achieve at this point. I'm barely losing 2 lbs./week now. I have had about 3 stalls in the past 4 months. I know what I'm doing wrong...I'm having lots of sweets, carbs, and wine on the weekends! After Thanksgiving, I'm going to go back to a stricter diet and focus on cardio and strength training.

    Sleeve Of Steel?

    I haven't had any issues. I only threw up once because I ate too much and ate too fast. I eat everything that I ate pre-sleeve and I have tolerated everything well. I just eat way less than before!
