  1. My BMI was 31 when I started 203 lbs, 5’10”. Im at 163lbs now, BMI 24 😊. I’m at my goal, but wouldn’t mind going down to 155. 5 months for my loss. But I lost over 1/2 my hair , 6 months post it started growing back.
  2. I'm 5 months post op. I literally lost 1/2 my hair. The last 4 days Ive noticed im only loosing a fraction of what I was. It's not wrapping around my hands in the shower. I don't have a ball of hair after blow drying etc. I'm at my goal now, I started at a BMI of 31 & its 24 now, after loosing 53lbs. So I'm hoping that's why it's slowed down. I ate and did my protein ,vitamins etc. I'm just Lucky I had very thick hair to start with. Loosing my hair was the worse side affect for me.

    Thinning hair?

    Your gettin it back now, that's good... I had really think hair, I think I lost 1/2 of it. I'm pretty stressed about it to be honest. I'm only 4 months post-op. It's noticeably getting thin , my husband made a comment (not knowing it was a side affect) I was embarrassed and never mentioned it, hoping he wouldn't notice. My part is so obvious, I used to have a pony tail like a horses tail. Everyone commented on my thick hair. So disappointing , I'm just looking forward to my 8/9months post op when it should start coming back. I'm so scared if I have to keep loosing it for another few months I'll be bald, and I'm not exaggerating ...it's loads of hair everyday falling out when I brush it, clogging the vacuum. Etc.

    4 months Post-Op

    If your 5 months in, your one of the lucky ones! You'll be fine!!! Don't worry. It starts growing back in at 8 months.
  6. I'm 41 , Mom of 2. I started out at 223 pounds (BMI 31) I'm 5'10". In 4 months including the pre-op I lost 49lbs total, today I weigh 174lbs and I'm 4 lbs from my goal of 170. If I loose 1 more pound my BMI will be 24.5 which will put me in the "Normal weight category" I do feel pretty good, I get tired the odd day, but not more then being overweight made me lazy. My hair is my biggest concern. I had such thick hair, my hairdresser always had to mix more stuff and always commented on the amount of hair I had ....well today I have about 1/2 that hair. I know it's temporary, I know it will come back, but it's not a nice feeling. I'm only at 4 months and if I keep loosing at the same rate, I'm terrified I'll go bald. I take my vitamins and Biotin and a collagen pill , and I'm pretty good with Protein. Water is very tuff for me as it still nauseates me, but I'm doing well overall. So far I'm still happy with my choice, but I've yet to see what happens with my hair. I'd rather be fat and have hair then thin and bald. anyway, goodluck to everyone! Well wishes to you all!
  7. Sleeved March 23, starting weight 223lbs ,current weight 175lbs, 5 pounds from my goal.
  8. That's not enough, water should pass right through. Maybe you just don't want to drink, it happens...some people get so turned off everything they just don't want to drink.
  9. It's normal for some yes, some days were better for me then others, the fatigue was the worse and water nausea.(for 8 weeks)I'm almost 4 months post op, and I feel completely normal. No deprevation or fatigue. You'll get there !! Hang in there!
  10. Almost Everyone says this the 1st couple of weeks to a month , no matter what your BMI was at the start , forget about the scale the 1st month and just concentrate on your water and protein. I'm 3 months Post-Op . I started with a BMI OF 31. I didn't really loose until near 3 weeks. I'm down 45 lbs today, but still not in my healthy weight range, I got 8 pounds to hit the top end of my ideal weight. remember a BMI of 35 is still considerably obese. Good Luck!
  11. My NUT says a true stall last at least 3 weeks. I'm 3 months out started at 223lbs and I'm 178lbs now, down 45 lbs. my goal is 165lbs. I'm 5'10".
  12. I can't give you any Advice, but I hope you find some help. I really feel for you & I truly hope you get through this a better You! Good Luck 🌷
  13. I'd go back and look at Pictures of yourself when you were Fat, might make you more mindful of what your doing to yourself now. goodluck!!
  14. Your 2 days post op and your trying to eat? Maybe I took that the wrong way?
  15. I don't feel like you, but did you ever think your hunger feelings might be indigestion? I was feeling hungry too, then I tried the prescription the doctor gave me for indigestion and now I don't feel hungry. You gotta stop making the wrong choices, don't wreck everything you did so far! Get outside and do something! Good luck!!!
