My three month appointment is today so I get to see what my bloodwork says. I had a cold for a couple of weeks and missed some Vitamins. Down almost 50 pounds and feeling great though!

My MD requires blood work at 3 months as well to check for deficiencies, etc. My appt. is next week, so fingers crossed. Sometimes I don’t get all my Vitamins in but trying to eat healthy so hoping for the best.

Had a follow up with the surgeon last Thursday to go over blood work and this morning with my PCP for the same. Cholesterol was slightly high but I havn't taken meds for it since a couple of weeks after surgery. PCP told me today I don't have to take anymore BP meds and she dropped one of my blood pressure meds. Go back to her in a month and hopefully she'll take me off the 2nd BP med. Shitty part is now that my gut is going down she noticed a 2nd hernia. So now umbilical and abdominal hernias. With the weight loss the damn things have started bothering almost all day long. Apparently my fat was holding them in place so I had hardly any pain before. My surgeon wants to wait until I lose more of my belly fat to repair them, so no relief for some time.

YES. In droves. I didn't have a ton of it to begin with sooooo.... I'm def going to have to get in and get it cut short. It is/was very long, and curly, so it looks to be thick, but is actually pretty thin. I think I've lost about half of it. Loosing more hair than weight. :(.

Awwwww. Darn. Have you had labs drawn to see if you have any Vitamin deficiencies yet? I don’t get my major labs drawn for another couple months.

Not yet 😞. I’m failing myself with this surgery ( or working out at all, not eating as good as I could) and honestly, I’m embarrassed to go see my dr 😭

Try not to be too hard on yourself. I’ve cheated quite a bit. I don’t exercise nearly as much as I should. I’m tired all the time. Now losing hair. I’m a little nervous to see doctor on the 24th as well. We will be ok. Moving forward. Tomorrow is another day to get it right.

Ditto - July 17 and down 49 lbs. It is just amazing, trying to recall when I last weighed this amount - years and years and years. So grateful. So very Grateful.

We’re all so similar! Sleeve done on July 3 and I am down 56 pounds including Pre-op. I had my 3 month follow-up/nutrition check last week and am waiting to hear back. I was afraid that I was losing too slowly (comparing myself to some people here) but my NP said I was doing great.
