Fat tissue can tie up Vitamin D, rendering many people to be deficient. Have any of you found that your post op blood work was showing higher levels of Vitamin D? Did getting rid of fat help your body utilize Vit D better?

Oh, I so hope this happens for me. I've been battling low Vitamin D for a year and a half with little to no results.

Me too, have to take extra Vitamin D, Iron , and Calcium although not all at the same moment. And the Magnesium fairy is waving her little hand to remind she's there also. Did you know you can't take Calcium and Magnesium at the same time? They are both Positive ions and head for the same receptor. Just another thing to schedule 2 hours apart. I feel like I'm selecting from a Chinese menu, 1 from Column A, 2 from Column B and bring me this one in Column C for dessert!

and don't take Iron and Vit D together. The iron binds up the Vit D. I take my multi/biotin/B-12 with breakfast/lunch and then the calcium/D with dinner.

I haven't had any bloodwork done post-op yet, but I do take Vit D every day

I've been on a prescription Vit D for going on 2 years and it's still almost nonexistent...when I first had it checked it was 7 and my last check a few weeks back was 13 :unsure:

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
