I was sleeved dec 10th, my hair is a little thinner, but I had to color my hair last week because the grey was so bad & I go back to work tomorrow. Looks great & no more shedding then I was doing already.

I have been coloring my hair every 4 weeks, since I was sleeved back in October -- I think the coloring helps camouflage the thinning.

I color mine still. I don't think it makes the shedding any worse than what it is already

RED. Go RED. Actually more if a strawberry Blonde. Or a really bright RED. Pink works too

I colored mine 6-8 weeks after surgery.

OTR... At some point, every person you have either provided sound info to, made laugh, or helped to pull back on track, should meet you somewhere in mid-America for a big bash! You're a hoot!

Wait, am I missing something? Does vsg cause you to get grey hairs regardless of age?? Or are the greys unrelated to the surgery?

Grays are unrelated to surgery. I started going gray in my 20s. I dye mine auburn,goes well with my complexion and green eyes

I don't get gray hair. I prefer to tell people I'm growing Fiber optic cable!

I'm a hair stylist and typically, there aren't any medical procedures that would prevent you from coloring your hair (with the exception of chemo or radiation, because this makes your hair more fragile than anything else). So, with that being said, I plan to continue to color mine and I have many clients who have been sleeved and we were still coloring their hair at their regular times. Go for it!!

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)
