    Looking for hair loss recommendations

    Good evening. I guess I'm abnormal because I'm seven months post op and haven't suffered any hair loss. I've heard Biotin is good so I'd suggest to start there. Good luck and see you on the loser's bench Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 195 GW: 165
  5. My surgeons staff and nutritionist asked me to speak about my journey at next months seminar. I'm so excited. I [emoji16][emoji6][emoji4] Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 210 GW: 165

    Suddenly Terrified

    All of us have had some type of fears. Turn it around and think of all the positive things this surgery will bring to your life... feeling better, less meds, smaller clothes and overall better health. Im 6.5 months post op and was fearful of hair loss. Guess what? Not one strand of hair has been lost.

    Need help week 5

  8. I must be abnormal [emoji4] . I woke up from surgery in very little pain. Once I was transferred to my room, I changed clothes, put on lip gloss (wanted to be cute) and started walking. I walked every hour until it was time to sleep. Three days after I was discharged, I was walking around Macy's (my favorite store). I had gas pains which subsided when I walked. Im now six months post op and am so very happy. I'm doing great with my weight loss and my only regret is that I didn't have the surgery sooner.

    So much insomnia

    After surgery, I invested in a reclining sofa. Best sleep ever!!! Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 197 GW: 165

    4 days post op and already concerned

    I filled two ounce cups and sipped one every 15 minutes and then I'd walk. It'll get easier...trust me Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 197 GW: 165

    4 days post op and already concerned

    Yes, it's normal. Over time, you'll be able to drink more. What helped me was to drink a few sips every 15 minutes. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 199 GW: 165

    Food funerals?

    I had my "last supper" because I'd convinced myself that it was the last time I'd have those things. Well I was right and wrong. In December, 2017, i gave up bread, rice, pasta and potatoes...it was hard because I really loved bread. Im almost six months post op and down 62 pounds. I've had some sweets, but can only have a few bites. Your new sleeve will not hold much. What you're experiencing is normal. Most of us have been there. Trust me, when you start to lose weight, you'll look at foods differently. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 199 GW: 165

    Something stuck?

    I had something similar. It felt like something (I described it as a piece of flesh) hanging in my throat. The doctors checked and said nothing was there, but I felt it. Four months later, it's finally gone. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 205 GW: 165
  16. I told my coworkers that I started seeing a nutritionist who is helping me to eat healthier. I eat smaller portions and I've started an exercise program. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 205 GW: 165

    Major non scale victory

    Hello everyone. The seminar was last night and my nutritionist said she was so proud of me. I was nervous but once I started speaking, i spoke of my journey. It was awesome afterwards because they all had questions for me. Can't wait to do it again. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 209 GW: 165

    I'm a book worm too... what do you read? Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 209 GW: 165
  22. I told my nosey coworkers that I gave up bread, rice, pasta and potatoes and I have protein with every meal. I didn't tell them about having the sleeve because it's none of their business. I only told those that are close to me and would support my decision. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 209 GW: 165

    How much weight

    You are right, everyone loses at different rates. I've lost 51 pounds, but I try not to worry about the scale. I celebrate non scale victories like how small I am and how lose my clothes for. Sleeved on April 25, 2018 HW: 258 SW: 238 CW: 209 GW: 165
