Stats first:

HW 427.4 (Jan. 2)

SW: 413 (Feb. 15)

Last week: 353

Today: 353.2

So, up 0.2 since last week, but down 58.8 since surgery and 74.2 overall.

That 0.2 pounds is probably just a glitch, because I'm due for a "bad" week after having two decent ones in a row. Hair loss is ongoing and annoying. Boobs are shrinking, which is even MORE annoying. I have faith the hair will come back. The boobs, not so much. Not much else to report.

Okay its been a long 3 months Had my Surgery feb 20th, and for a while there I was stuck at 210lbs Didn't matter what I did. I forced the Protein in drank more Water and went for longer walks and IM FINALLY UNDER 200lbs!!! I haven't been under 200lbs in 10 years.

But here is why I'm really here today- is anyone else having the dreaded Hair loss? my hair is falling out and breaking worse then a golden retriever in sheading season. I've been taking Biotin even prior to surgery. but my hair has become soo thin.

Ticks and trips that work? things you've read online? or am I rocking a ponytail for the rest of my days to come?

You can buy the collagen peptides. Unflavored. 10 grams Protein plus so much collagen which helps rebuild hair skin and nails there are a couple of different companies. Just make sure it has 10 gram of protein or more. I bought mine from Amazon.

Everything seems to be going good. I’m grateful for all of you being here and sharing your experiences. I really feel so much better physically, walking stairs with no pain, sleeping better and so much energy. If there is a downside, I have problems with eating chicken. It doesn’t matter how it’s cooked, it has to be chopped into tiny bites before I chew it to paste, and then sometimes it still gets stuck on its way down. I don’t seem to have that problem with any other Protein. That being said, I really don’t have cravings or feel hungry yet. I fuel my body with protein and veggies and a piece of fruit a day. Have gone low carb, after figuring out that when I eat carbs, my joints become inflamed and I retain fluid.

Hello, friends!

I made it to Onederland!!!! First time probably since I got married 14 years ago. It feels great to buy smaller clothes.

Eating is going ok. I really need to get back to using my Baritastic app to track my food. Some days I feel like I'm eating too much, other days I forget to eat. Ugh!

My hair is falling out like crazy. Wahhhhhh! I'm using Nioxin Shampoo and taking 10K of Biotin a day. Oh well, it will grow back.

Went out for sushi with my husband last weekend, and asked for options without rice. There were two rolls on the menu without rice already! It was fabulous! Sometimes you think life is over because of all the foods you can't have, but times like this make me happy :)

We were talking about life and social events revolving around food--and people noticing that you're not eating. So true. I said I feel like I get noticed more for not drinking alcohol. How about you guys?

Another crap-tastic week, blah. hair falling out rapidly but so far isn't noticeable visibly (amazingly, considering how thin my hair already was). Fingers crossed it stays that way.

I was down to 350 the other day but am back up to 353 today; trying not to get too frustrated with it.

Getting sick of most foods I eat, which is annoying. I'm a fairly picky eater, so my choices are already somewhat limited by that, let alone by what my stomach will tolerate and what I'm not tired of eating.

So down 5.6 since last week, 65.6 since surgery and an even 80 since my high weight in January!

Talk about a jump! Not sure what caused it, because this week I experimented with adding in Pasta and bread (no issues with either!), so I fully expected my weight to either stay the same or go up a little. Not that I'm complaining! (Except for about my Hair loss -- I'm always complaining about that!)

This week I hit the 17-week mark (Thursday) and the four-month mark (Friday). Since surgery, I'm averaging a loss of 3.86 pounds per week and 16.4 per month. IF I can stick to those averages permanently (which I know isn't realistic for a variety of reasons), I would hit my goal weight of 165 in mid-May to early June 2019 (which would be AMAZING as my own tentative/admittedly kind of lofty goal is to hit goal weight by 18 months from surgery, which would be Aug. 15, 2019.

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

      2. AshAsh1

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

    • Kaseyn2boys

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
