Is anyone taking Vitamins and supplements now? I began taking a Multivitamin and Biotin a month ago.

Yes, I'm taking the same a multi and biotin. I'm on prescription Vitamin D and Iron.< /p>

I'm taking a multi and Vitamin D - 10,000 units because my bloodwork ALWAYS comes back very low on D. I live in Seattle so I can't expect much else! If the deficiency is still a problem post surgery I'll ask my doc for a standing prescription for the once a week dose. I've also cut back coffee to weekends only, cut out soda which wasn't difficult since I don't drink much anyway. Same with alcohol, I play on being alcohol free for a year after surgery. I'm drinking more Water, which is why I stopped drinking coffee. I found I was drinking a few cups of coffee before work then NO water the rest of the day.

I've also upped my skin care routine. I'm not a very vain person but I've heard that rapid weight loss can cause a little wrinkli-ness in the face. I have good skin - trying to keep it that way!

Got my 5th appointment down but because of my insurance I can't go to my nut classes until after my 6th appointment and then a weigh in in December(hoping December 2nd for the dumb 7th weigh in. Then I have to wait for the nut classes and my insurance approval. She said ill still have a end of year surgery but I was hoping for a early December :( super bummed.

That's frustrating. Hopefully it will all go smoothly, though, and still be before the new year!

I'm hoping for December 5 too which I realized today is in about 6.5 weeks! December sounds much further away than 6.5 weeks!

I am on my way to get the endoscopy done. Last of the tedious tests before surgery (Finally) Wish me luck ladies!!! I am a bit nervous now. I will let you know how it goes in case any of you are curious about the procedure.
