@@Peekboo I have family in Norfolk. I was just down your way last month.

Question: I want to dye my natural fro so bad. Would it be a good idea for me to do it now? I will be one month out on Friday.

I'm finally officially on my second day of my pre-op diet. I must say...not too bad! I truly thought I would be dying of starvation but my Protein Shakes have been keeping me quite satisfied. I wasnt sure if Unjury was going to live up to the hype, but they taste amazing (i've only tried chocolate Splender and vanilla so far)! It's the first Protein Drink I've tried that doesnt actually taste like a "protein drink". @@Melissayw816 I have to agree...the anticipation is killing me. I just want to get it over so I can actually have a good night sleep minus the crazy "surgery dreams". Lol! @ I fear the same thing. This surgery is as much about health as it is about image. I was blessed to inherit some nice curves and I REALLY want to keep them. :unsure:

Im not sure about the hair coloring although I see many people do on the youtube channels I watch about vsg.

I dont color mine but I need a relaxer touch up and not sure about getting one so lose to my 8 Oct surgery date.

I too have had dreams that I may just me a bag of bones, lol. If you are curvy you probably will just have smaller curves after weight loss. My trainer said exercises with weights will help you not lose muscle tone.

Listen. I want to keep some butt nad hips too. But, at 4 weeks post op I noticed my butt is down. i do feel a little curviness in the hips. But my bottom was even hurting after riding my bike, and that never happened before. That started Saturday. I need to do some squats and lunges for real, lol. I hate lunges though, lol.

@@Peekboo Thanks for that tip. I just purchased some 10lb weights so I hope that does the trick. I've never seen myself without curves and I think that may be a scary sight for all to see. People may think I'm sick or dying! lol

@Peekboo., I know I know. I just don't like them cause they are so hard to me. But hopefully with me being lighter, it will be much easier now. Any workout suggestions?

@, lol. I can honestly say that I did have me my Last meal. I knew once I got home, I had to do my liver shrink for two weeks. But I am good now though.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
