    Jaelzion got a reaction from Joules007 in Alcohol is a Transfer Addiction !!   
    It was shopping for me. For a good 6 months I spent way too much on clothes. I really did need to replenish my wardrobe after losing 130 pounds, but I was buying more than I needed. It took me a while to recognize what was going on and stop doing that. I have a couple of friends for whom the weight loss itself became their transfer addiction. Instead of stabilizing once they reached their goal, they kept dieting and losing. Eventually they were both emaciated and skeletal. In their 50s, both of these ladies developed full-blown anorexia. Fortunately, with treatment, they both recovered and they are at healthy weights now. But it just shows that literally ANYTHING can become problematic if you use it to self-medicate. It's like whack-a-mole.

    Humph. I'm 56 and I'm pretty sure plastic surgery is in my future, LOL. You are by no means too old.

    Yes, it's happened to me (both before and after my sleeve). I don't pretend to really understand the science, but many people have experienced this.

    I don't discuss my health care with everyone and I also don't tell lies or make things up. People shouldn't feel they have to do one or the other. It's fine to simply not discuss it.

    I take Prozac and Wellbutrin and my surgery did not affect my meds at all. I was also taking Xarelto and it DID affect that - I ended up getting a blood clot! So check with your doc on whether or not you can expect any changes after surgery.

    Jaelzion got a reaction from LilaNicole20 in Dreaded hair loss - question   
    My hair was pretty much a casualty of WLS. I lost most of my hair and it hasn't grown back. My surgeon speculates that my hair fell out due to the normal telogen effluvium that comes with drastic weight loss. Then it didn't grow back due to age-related Hair loss I would have had anyway (I'm 57). So the surgey sped up the hair loss and I lost it all at once, rather than gradually over a couple of years. But my experience is unusual and I wouldn't take back the 130 pounds I've lost to get my hair back!
