I haven’t had any Hair loss yet but I’ve been taking Biotin and collagen since first week after surgery to prevent that and flabby skin...I think that’s why I haven’t had any issues yet.
I have a friend who’s a couple years postop and she said hear hair is still growing back so she keeps it very short and we don’t see any bald spots...it’s different for everyone I guess.

Good morning all! Just took some progress pics to compare to the ones I took prior surgery. 3.5 months in. Down from size 20 to 14. Down almost 50 pounds. Let’s do this 💪🙌

Does anybody know how long the Hair loss continues or here is a better question when does it grow back?!!

I've read about 6 months. I haven't lost any yet. I had to quit Biotin. It made my nails very strong and lovely but was giving me hair in undesired places.

I'm trying to wean myself off the scales - I am on them every day and because of all the fluctuations which I'm hoping is Water weight! - it's driving me nuts! I can't work out what's causing the changes every day but it's so depressing... I checked with my NUT and psych support and both have told me to continue to weigh every day as they say it will help me keep focused and accountable...! But, it feels like a constant struggle...

I've started asking naturally thin people what their weight fluctuations are like and they have them too! :)

I’m surprised both professionals told you to weigh yourself everyday. My doc told me to only weigh myself once a week. Everyone’s weight fluctuates. Try doing it only once a week. Good luck!

And mine took it even further, said unless there is some ungodly. future event where you would have to know, center on one scale to trust, and I WOULD PREFER IT TO BE MY FREQUENTLY recalibrated medical one. Something I wasn't aware of, since he is in my State's Premiere Land Grant College Ohio's Divisions of Weights keeps him recalibrated. And just like fire extinguishers have last service/ certified until this date labels, his what I Jokingly called his " cattle scale" has one also, just have to know where to look!👸😛👸👍

A scale isn't the best way to measure progress anyway, it's just the easiest way.

@Georgetown—I’ve never heard of a program that RECOMMENDS daily weighing. That’s strange. Usually the recommendation is weekly or less. If it’s not working for you, I’d say don’t do it. Go to twice a week or once a week and see if that is more motivating.

So I bought size 14 jeans a couple of weeks ago because my 16s were getting roomy. They were still too darn small! So I went from 16W to regular 16 and then today.. the 14s fit!!!! I’m ecstatic and can’t believe I’m in the smallest of the plus sizes. Tops from Avenue are too big.. I need to find a “normal” size place to shop at!

In case you’re wondering I started at a 20/22 and have lost 70 pounds

Ive found that I used to only be able to eat half a chicken breast at one sitting now I can almost eat a whole one. I’m worried that my stomach is stretching out too much. Anyone else had experience with this?

      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
