  2. Hair Loss

    Hi all, I had my surgery 6-21-17. I have been taking all my vitamins and hair vitamins that my doctors nutritionist tells me to take. My hair has become more brittle and thin out more[emoji17] I get my protein in too. Has anyone else experienced this and when will it end? Is there anything I can do to stop it and help it? Thanks Mel
  3. Hair loss

    Okay I read everywhere that hair loss is common. I had my surgery 6/21 and I have noticed my hair thinning and becoming brittle. I take my vitamins and hair vitamins which my doctors nutritionist tells me to take and I get my protein in. When does this she's stop and what else can I do to help my hair? ~mel

  6. Need a buddy/mentor...help!

    Hi [emoji1309], you're doing awesome! 20 pounds is something to celebrate [emoji322] plateau is normal once you can eat more good high protein foods you will lose the weight. Remember you are so worth all of this and you are so strong. You have made the decision to be healthy for you and most people won't do it for themselves, but you are! It takes time. You got this!!!!
  7. You're an inspiration! All of your hard work is paying off. Great job! Keep getting healthy. [emoji5]
  8. Allison, I am so excited that you are ready for your new journey! Just remember to breathe and take time for yourself. I made sure to clean and stock my pantry. I was a little scared at first too. But looking back I would do it all again! [emoji7]
  9. Super bummed

    I am in the same boat, I had my surgery on 6/21 and I was down 13 lbs and now have been holding at the same weight for 3 days. Guess I have to get more walking in[emoji12]
  10. Hi all! I have the sleeve on 6-21-17. I do not have a history of high blood pressure. Usually mine is well within the normal range. After surgery it was high and continues to be 140/94 it hangs around there. Plus my pulse it higher than normal. I called my doctor and was told not to worry and that they will monitor it and I should be fine. What could be causing this? Can dehydration cause HBP? My doctor checked for leaking and I am all good. Any thoughts or feed back is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mel

    Hello everyone I was banded in June had my first fill in July but I still do not really have the sensation of feeling full yet. Is that normal? Will I feel full with my second fill?
