    You sound like me!! After my RNY I was walking 7 days a week (this comes from a person who HATED exercise!! I got so badd that if something came up and I couldn't walk it drove me insane. I felt like a TOTALLY FAILURE!!! Guess what I still lost my weight and now I exercise 3 to 4 times a week. I walk 3 to 4 miles each time. I truely feel that my exercise is my saving grace!! Don't push yourself until you start to hate it because this is something that we have to do. Exercise is so important!!n Good Luck

    Sherrie Scharbrough got a reaction from Sleeve1stFitNext in 6/5 - Still doing my Keto Diet. It is working. I am very proud of sticking to it. 6/6   
    I have a few freinds that are doing the KETO DIET. They are doing great. Most of them have had WLS. My hubby tried his hardest to do Keto but the meal plan, was to prep the food form the part of the week. We were set up with recipes for that week. But he really didn't care for the food. I DON'T care for leftovers so I didn't even try it. But I think it is a great program for sure. I have heard and seen lots of peeps doing great on it. Good Luck

    Sherrie Scharbrough got a reaction from Newme17 in Does anyone eat popcorn...any good or bad experiences ?   
    Yes Popcorn is life for sure. I Love show popcorn. LOL It defintly is the hardest thing to give up. LOL I am with you all the way. We do what we have to do, to keep us sane. I was told by my Surgeon and his nurse beore I even had my RNY that there are no forbidden foods. We just have to use common sense and get the portion control i there. Now others wil say that they don't want to push it because eating those foods are what put them gaining weight and needing WLS. It defintly is a personal journey. Like I said we have to do what we have to be sucessful.

    Sherrie Scharbrough got a reaction from biginjapan in Ughh - hair loss is very real. My hairline is noticeably thinner. I've been losing ha   
    This is very sad for us women!! Think about it, men can lose their hair or shave it off and be fine!! Noone will say anything about it. Then cme us Women!! We are such a worry wart that it is devastating to us!! It WILL grow back mine did. The thing about me was I come from a bunch of women that lost their hair so I was very very thin myself. Before my RRNY I kept a perm in my hair so it looked thicker. When I was young I had tons of hair I mean tons When I put it up with a thickest rubber hair band I could only wrap the rubber band 2 times. After my WLS I haven't put a perm in it. But did color it and started wearing it short. Good things are a comin it will grow back in. Go to your Hair stylist if youm havre one and talk to them. Another thing get your amount of protein in, I started only washing it ever other day. Plus I use a shampoo that helps with hair loss. I also take HAIR SKIN AND NAILS. I took them everyday up until last month when my B12 came back to high. Now I take it 2 times a week. Also Seleinum. Hang in there

    I tried Fairlife when it first started hitting our stores here. I found it to sweet just normal milk. I would guess that the chocolate would be to sweet also. Another Lactose free milk I have tried and can use, is Safeways Lactose Free milk. All of the others seem to sweet for me. Maybe I willl try the chocolate and add sme regular milk t it.

    Hi,
    I noticed that you are from Poirtland, Oregon. I am from Roseburg, Oregon. Which Dr are you going too? I had my RNY done in Coos Bay, Oregon. I kind of fired my Surgeon. Then I started going to OHSU. They took me in right away. I had to have a ENDOSCOPE with a Dialation. Not my 1st but my 5th. I was told that most DR.'s won't take a patient to fix another DR's mess up. I so appreciate them. When are you scheduled to have your WLS? I would love to follow yur journey if you don't mind. If you want to email me that would be great. I can give you my email address if you want it. Again, I just get so excited when I see someone local. Well, kind of local. Good Luck

    Sherrie Scharbrough got a reaction from Mel72 in Do you really have hair loss after surgery and if so, how long after surgery did you   
    As far as I know most do lose hair. Mine started at around 5 months and then started slowing done around 9 months. I had been using Nioxin Shampoo before my RNY, it didn't seem to make much of a difference. I did cut my hair short and started taking HAIR SKIN AND NAILS which has really made a difference!! I have my nails done every 2 weeks because they grow so fast. I also stopped washing my hair everyday. I wash it every other day now. I also have tried differnt shampoos. It is called PUR d ORA it helped some. Then I have a new shampoo that is for hair loss and I like it much better. It makes my hair look fuller. It also has a fresh smell. The PUR d ORA doesn't have a smell hardly at all. So if you sweat it makes your hair stinky. One thing for sure is to get all of your Protein in and drink lots of water too. Some believe that it is caused by the anesthesia that causes hair loss. Now I have had very thin hair before and I was truly afraid that I was going to be bald. It is pretty disheartening to be worrying about so much other stuff that is going on and then to start losing my hair!! Good Luck
