    Hair Loss

    I use a light brown hair spray concealer on my hair to cover any thin spots and it works wonders.

    Sounds like your gallbladder.
  3. I think its great that she is finally taking pride in her appearance. She looks great. No matter what wls surgery you have, if you've damaged your body by weighing over 460 pounds, you are bound to have some body damage that cant be fixed by surgery. I never liked her myself either but she looks like she's taking pride in her appearance and I applaud her for that. She never said it was a 123 quick fix. She is also trying to teach her whole family to eat right . I think she looks great and is now healthy , isn't that what we are striving for not just the physical attributes.

    61lbs down 3 months post op!!!!

    Your stories are amazing I just finished all my prerequisites and my paperwork goes to the insurance company hopefully very soon I would love to just lose 25 lbs to fit into some of my old clothes, but I'll be happier if I lose the whole 80-85 lbs. I am very scared and excited at the same time but it's a good scared.

    Bipolar 2

    I am also bipolar and they told me that's why I had to get the sleeve. I can't understand why they are being so dramatic about bipolar medication. I'm pretty sure we aren't the only two people to get this surgery and being bipolar at the same time. You should definitely ask them directly what is their position on this or if they have a problem with your medical issue. My doctors have been very supportive and knowledgeable about being bipolar.

    Holy Hair Loss Batman!!

    My mom's hair is thin but she's 73, she turned me on to the color hairsprays that she uses and I fell in love with it! I use the light brown spray about 6" away from hair so it looks natural and it comes out looking like highlights. It is my miracle spray.

    My 600 lb life

    That's a good thing and knowing that surgery will help me with cravings and hopefully I will think about every thing I put into my body before I eat it.
