  1. I was all about HAIR before my surgery [emoji22] that was 8 months ago. I have cried and cried so much but then I realize my health is of much more importance. With 71 pounds down, I am so happy and feel so much healthier. More than half of my hair is gone, I tried everything! Hair products ( don't work and conditioner made my hair fall in clumps!), biotin ( did research and only works for new hair growth!), not washing my hair for days ( hair was falling all over, since I always have it in a bun and taking it oof due to my scalp hurting [emoji31]). So I just waited. Apparently to my nutritionist and my 6 months blood results, show I am not taking in enough protein! So I have been increasing that. 8 months later my hair loss has decreased drastically but at the same time I am getting new hair growth as well [emoji16] I know everyone's body is different, so don't get discouraged. I don't regret it! I see it as a temporary phase and it'll pass. Just keep in mind why you want this procedure done. Is it to have and keep your beautiful hair or is it for you to live a longer healthier life? You may have kids, like I do. Think of them as well. I felt I was slowly killing my future, main reason for me. Good luck to you and God bless! Sent from my SM-N950U using BariatricPal mobile app

    February bypass buddies?

    SW: 230 CW: 199.5 GW: 140 30 Pounds lost since surgery Whew! How is everyone doing? I am definitely starting to see the difference, especially my face! 30 pounds down! I am so excited to finally losing all of my bulgy stomach! I had everything small except my middle section, hated shopping! Though I am still having trouble with food choice. I have my dietitians instructions and compared to some recipes online, it confuses me. I tend to ask myself, can I try that? I am told it gets easier and I am SOOO looking forward to it! What vitamins do you all take? Any yummy ones that are recommended?

    Good evening! How are you ladies. I am 8 days post op and it feels like forever! Tomorrow is my first Dr's appt post op. I sure have questions I need answers on protein and vitamins. I am okay with all the chewy bites I'm taking but just want to verify. My concern is PROTEIN! I'm having trouble getting that in Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
