    Dust yourself off. Just don’t do it again.
    Continue to weigh your food so you don’t over eat.

    I know exactly how you feel! I have taken up drinking way to much during this time! I keep telling myself I’m not gonna buy anymore & then I buy some more! I have put on 30 lbs & I’m not happy with myself at all!

    To never even test your new self to see if you can have sugar ever again! I’ve slipped back into my horrible eating habits & have gained 25 lbs. I’m so upset with myself & I’m having a hard time getting back on track. Those food & alcohol demons will always be with me!

    Sending good vibes!
    Hospital check list: chapstick, toiletries, own pillow, slippers or slide on sandals, phone charger, wear same comfy clothes home that you wore to the hospital.

    Being tired is a very typical symptom for anyone with rapid weight loss after a surgery! Our bodies are going through a major change right now!

    Consult with your surgeon, but my bet Is that he will tell you that is normal.

    Give yourself some love by not trying to do so much. Your body is still in recovery mode. It will get better & then you will have way more energy then you have had in a long time!

    Call your Surgon!!! Please don’t rely on what someone on the internet tells you! It could be nothing, but it could be something!!! Don’t chance it!

    Your body is going through a lot with major surgery & low calories. Give it time for your body to adjust.

    We took GasX right after. You can take a Fiber powder that you mix in Water for constipation right now. (I just can’t think of what it’s called right now!) If you think you are really impacted use an enema. You don’t need to lay down on the ground, just use it while sitting on the toilet & hold it in for a few minutes.

    toodlerue reacted to Darktowerdream in Hair is feeling very coarse ?   
    Hope you don’t mind if I suggest some things that helps me with that. I take Natures way Alive! hair skin & nails gummies with 300mg collagen. I also take omegas, my favorite is hero nutritionals Omega 3 with chia seed (also gummies) and my Multivitamin is Garden of Life mykind organics Whole Foods Gummy drops (it’s actually a prenatal Vitamin which is common in bariatric patients) I was going to switch to a one a day tablet but can’t find any without added iodine and the whole food based nutrition absorbs better. (I get them from vitacost.com)

    I find certain Vitamins help a lot with dry hair and skin. Also any itching or irritated skin I recommend Tamanu oil, even for blemishes.
