Some random stuff

My hair is growing back, that's the good news. The bad news is, it looks insane, all this hair sticking up all over my head! Also, I was oblivious to this, until I get to a hotel with good lighting in the bathroom. I wish life were more dimly lit! No more worries about crazy hair or pooling thigh skin! :blush:

I maybe had my first dumping incident last night? Had dinner, nothing unusual for me, taco, cheese with chorizo, rice, Beans, beer. Then was offered free Baileys. Who am I to turn down free!? Well, almost finished and started to feel nauseous. Then a few minutes later the cramps started. I've felt slightly nauseous before eating something sweet, but it usually passes in about 15 minutes. But this was me in a fetal position for 2 hrs until the cramping mostly stopped. No other symptoms, didn't puke, no runs, just a couple of hours of misery. I think I have had Bailey's post op. Not positive, but it is something I sometimes order if I'm on a plane and want something sweet. Whatever it was, I'm swearing off Baileys for now, even if it's free!

As of December 18th I am 7 months out. My HW 246, GW 160, CW 152!! The things I need to work on now is snacking (I try to do healthy snacking, but it don’t always happen that way)! I haven’t gotten to crazy with it but, my thoughts are I don’t want to go back to the way I used to be! I go to the gym straight after work at least 3 days a week, but during long breaks I don’t go because my job and gym are an hour away (which sucks) but living out in the country I have no other choice! So my next step is to find some exercise, weight training and yoga I can and will do at home!! This is extremely important to me!! The next thing is to continue looking and finding healthy recipes that I love and to learn to meal prep!! The only thing is I don’t like many kinds of left over meat!! Like they said the hard work really begins when you begin trying to maintain and knowing you can’t go back to the way things were and expect different results!! Hair loss is a big thing for me, which most people say they can’t tell it but they just don’t know what I have to do to my scalp (in the front and a little on the sides) to cover up these thin spots!! That spray on cover color is my best friend at the moment!! Happy New Year to all of you and I hope 2019 will be an even better year for you!!!

Welcome!!! Ok, spill it! What color/brand of spray on color do you use? I am right there with you. I presently use this "eye shadow" for your scalp, then set it with hairspray (Big Sexy Hair). I use dark brown and kinda scrub it in. Then I also use the BSH volumizer powder to "fump it up". I also do backcomb close to the head and set it in with a straightening Iron, so it lasts a couple of days. Ugh! I used to have such thick hair.

Congrats on being below goal girl!!!! Woooohoooo!!! (And quit snacking! ;) Eat 2-3 meals per day and be done with it!!)

So real talk about beatification: will the Catholic Church accept me as the patron saint of VSG Dumpers if I'm still alive? How do I choose the image of me I want used? Should our member jackets have rhinestones or embroidery?

Nope, you've gotta be dead. It's in the rules 😂 I vote embroidery!

I'm so jealous that your hair is growing back. Mine is falling out by the handful again, probably because of the second surgery! I'll look like Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future soon!

Girl!!! Where's our new thread already? :D :D :D You're the boss of it, so go get it going. I'll post like a ho over there!


IT IS DONE. Ho away:

Hopefully jamming the mission statement up there in the title will work.

It's addiction transference, we know no pacing. Better that we're addicted to a message board rather than drugs or sex? (Though some of us are actively working on transferring to the latter.)

      Looking on the bright side: both a loss of 1lb/week and a loss of 4lbs/week are LOSSES.  So long as the trendline is going down, I'm happy.

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.
