    Any February 2014 Sleevers?

    I am still losing hair at 9 months out but nothing "alarming". I had extremely thick hair so now it sort of feels like when I'd go and get it thinned out a lot. The thing that worries me is that I just had to have a hysterectomy and my GYN said that hair loss can be a major side effect. So, I am hoping it doesn't increase a significant amount. 2 surgeries in 9 months may just make my hair loss worse. My Dr. said the stress of being put under anesthesia coupled with the hormonal changes is a major factor in hair loss. Now I can times that by two

    Our center of gravity changes when we lose weight and we walk differently etc. Or bodies ache as it adjusts

    The vomiting does not sound normal to me. Dumping usually involves diarrhea. My surgery was feb 18 and I've lost exactly 70 pounds. 50 since day of surgery

    Since it comes and goes it's easy to think "well, was that really as bad as I thought it was?" And then we let it go. Until the next time. And then it gradually gets worse until you're up all night curled into a ball popping Vicodin like Pez candies. Don't let it get outta hand because it can really cause a significant amount of pain.

    It is your gallbladder and it is going to only get worse. You really need to have it looked at soon.

    I was just reading and responding to a post like this. I went through a loooong stall, then lost several pounds when it broke. Then had several weeks with a loss of only a pound a week. This last week I think I lost 4 pounds. I just try to get rid of hidden carbs and sugars. Another thing is I have to walk. If I don't walk or exercise I don't lose. Also I upped my fluids so that might've also helped. It's very discouraging, but it broke into a bigger loss once I cut out carbs and upped my exercise and fluids.

    Yup. I'll do that. And then when it breaks you'll start losing several pounds a week. Then a pound here n there. Then several pounds... Lol

    I got so constipated with just ONE iron supplement that I literally could not poop. With 3 stool softeners a night and milk of mag. I was getting all of my fluids too. I had to literally stop taking iron.

    I might be shedding. I don't really know because I always shed. I am not noticing anything significant at 3 1/2 months out.
