Lisa, you’ve come too far to lust for other people’s food. I have seen too many people go through bypass surgery, and put the weight back, way more rapidly, than the rate it came off. I think that’s why I put off having the sleeve procedure for so long. Get yourself together. You wouldn’t lust for someone else’s partner, and act on it!
As for the hair, I’ve experienced Hair loss before, after strict dieting, or surgeries. My part was getting wider and wider. At the suggestion of my dermatologist, I started taking a hair, Skin, & Nails formula, Gummy Vitamin, with a high amount of Biotin. It takes about 8 weeks. You should see new, baby hairs coming in. It’s not breakage.
enjoy your socializing. Savor the company. Forget the food.

I'll have to ask my nutritionist about the Vitamin with Biotin to stop the hair loss... I'd love to get my normal volume back.

While I appreciate the support, I don't feel like I need to "get myself together". I was being honest about where my journey is right now. I put the work in every day. As for whether I'd act on lusting after someone else's man, I guess that would depend on the man :) just kidding.... happily married for 35 years and he's still plenty of man for me. Take care.

So far in my journey this is what I have done and has seemed to work. I drink 2-3 Protein Shakes a day or eat once or twice adjusting Protein shakes. I keep moving as much as possible doing anything. I utilize our treadmill and do yard work. I do some walks here and there too. Sometimes I lift weights high reps low weight. No cheese, rice,potatoes,pasta or anything if goes in my mouth either grilled chicken fish maybe piece of steak and either piece of apple or some vegetable. Every thing seems to get hot sauce or vinegar with pepper. Now always have cravings for pickles plus eat almonds and shelled walnuts if want snack. Besides the beer I drank I’ll drink only abit of black coffee Protein Shake or Water.

Everyone keep up the work stay on course I feel the head hunger wanting the junk food Both my wife and son are skinny and eat everything pizza chips ect

if I can take it you guys can too. It is a good feeling when no one recognizes you. Good luck WE ALL WIN!

Since I got no counseling beyond a sheet of paper, that said I could eat , lightly, after a month. I went from shakes and Soups to regular food. I was eating high Protein, very small portions— 800 calories. I was not losing for a month. I started using ProTracker, Keto/Calorie. I stay under 1100c., and track every morsel. I keep carbs under 50, and fats low. I have lost my desire for junk. I’m surprised I haven’t s sprouted feathers, I eat so much chicken. It’s slow, but almost steady. I had a serious leg injury, and my mobility is not yet where it should be, but I try to do what I can. It’s just good to no longer be controlled by food.
Good Luck to you.

Great to see I’m in sync mostly with everyone else. I’ve lost about 50 pounds and still need 38 more. It’s coming off slow but I’m okay with it. I also am not wanting that saggy skin which I’m already having a bit. My Hair loss is crazy but just thin, no balding yet. Does anyone have recommendations for hair loss. Why does this Evan happen.

Having had a serious weight loss years ago, and having had a serious Hair loss, my dermatologist recommended taking Biotin. I use a hair, Skin, Nails, gummie. I have had wonderful results. It takes about two months to see results. It will be short hairs coming in, not breakage. I don’t have a widening part any longer.

Hey Fellow Feb Folks! Coming into our 6 month mark! I have been in a big stall..no weight loss at all for 3 weeks! Finally the scale moved and I am in ONEDERLAND! After many disappointing trips to the scale over the last few weeks, it felt like a miracle....

Hope you all are doing well. I am feeling strong and my energy level is good; I've been trying to include more hills in my daily walks and doing some light weight work for my upper body. I'm eating between 850 and 1000 calories per day; given that I am walking so much I am happy with that. Still need an occasional Protein Bar or shake to make my Protein, but I can mostly do it through diet. Since we have been sweltering here in Mass getting the Water in is not too hard.

With everything going on in the world, I am enjoying the peace that comes from taking walks in the woods, and I am grateful that I am healthy enough to do that. I hope you and yours are healthy, happy and safe.

Lisa

@lisafrommassachusetts hey it’s so good to hear from you!! I’m glad that you are doing good even in this crazy time that we are living in.

I am doing well. I’m about where you are on the calories and am able to get my Protein in most days. I’m not feeling so great on the energy but I did just find out that I’m severely low on my Iron so just started supplements for that and am hoping that it helps.

We have been trying to do a lot of outdoor activities with our kids like doing foot golf, batting cages, and golf. We also enjoy hiking. So on the days that it’s too hot to get out and do any of those kinds of things, I do the walk a mile in your home and try to do several of them. At my 3 month appointment my surgeon wanted me to add some resistance training but I haven’t done too well at being consistent with that so it’s definitely something that I need to work more on.

As of today, I have lost 90 pounds since February!🤭 however, I still have a long way to go. I’ve been thinking on what my “goal” weight should be. Currently, my BMI is 34 but I feel like if I get to a “healthy” BMI, I would probably look sickly. I don’t ever remember being that low in my life (although of course I was but definitely not as an adult).

Anyways, I’m rambling. I’m excited to hear from everyone!

Hey all.

Its been about 5 and half months for me. Down 95 since surgery and 115 since January.

Noticed myself in a hotel mirror over the weekend. First time I realized how saggy I've become.

I'm trying to up my weight lifting but its been tough since my wife won't let me go back to the gym.

I’m glad everyone is doing so well!! This last month my weight loss stalled. The 180s was the longest month and a half of my life but I’m finally in the 170s with a BMI of 29. Things in general are slower so I’ve been upping my exercise even more to 4x a week and walking 6x a week. I want to lose 20 more pounds for a healthy BMI. My bloodwork for my six month came back healthy so that’s nice to hear. This sprint has now definitely turned into a marathon but I must not get discouraged!!!

It is much too early for that... hang in there . I felt the same way but it will quickly change .. you will be so amazed.. just follow the instruction , make it your purpose in life right now the drink as much Water as you can. the things you can have now are lilmited for a reason ,stick to it ...your time to change it up will come . be patient and remember it took time and bad eating habits to get us here and it's gonna take time and good eating habits to take us where we want to go.... Don't complain to yourself just encourage yourself and Celebrate everyday you are closer to your promised land. I only regret I didn't do this 10 or 20 years ago......




Had my one week appointment today. I weighed the same as I did on the day or surgery. [emoji20]
