Congrats! You look great!

TE (telegen effluvium) is part of severe calorie restriction and quick weight loss. Mine is finally growing back. I'm 2+ years out.

I eat all low fat Proteins on the planet except soy for the most part. And most of my Protein is animal based rather than plant based, although I do eat 1+ lbs of veg per day and there is some amount of protein in those plants.

The ones I love:

eggs/egg whites

2% cottage cheese

non fat Greek yogurt

Premier Protein in coffee = proffee lattes

Fairlife Core Power chocolate blended with ice and nonfat Greek yogurt to make a milkshake

tuna in pouch (water packed)

salmon in pouch (water packed)

sardines in Water

Boar's Head Turkeys + Lacey Swiss roll-ups/wraps

Oscar Meyer Naturals Ham

tuna salad made with pouch tuna + cottage cheese + hb egg + green onion + dijon + vlasic dill relish



basa fillets

chicken breasts

turkey cutlets

ground turkey

ground chicken

pork loin/tenders

lean beef

90/10 ground beef

ribeye steak trimmed of visible fat

turkey pepperoni

turkey sausage

venison all cuts

lamb lean cuts

reduced fat cheeses

fresh mozzarella

nuts/seeds/nut butters

nonfat Fairlife milk

nonfat buttermilk

low fat sour cream

temporary Hair loss is extremely common with bariatric surgery. But....it'll grow back. I lost hair (but not a lot...) from about month 6 to month 9. For most of us, you're the only one who'll notice it.

      I am almost 8 weeks post op and I am down to 157 from 202. I have been struggling with nausea but not vomiting. Anyone else having this happen?

        After having horrendous nausea I did some reading and it seems quite common. Especially if you have ruled out eating too fast/too big a mouthful. Also drinking too soon will make you feel sick. I now take 2 antiemetics to help with my nausea, hopefully yours is just that you need to slow down eating etc

      2. BayougirlMrsS

        agree with the above. start a log of what and when you eat/drink

      3. zombierayvinn

        Thank you. I get the nausea throughout the day and night its kind of weird.

      4. BayougirlMrsS

        do you set a timer? This is also a hard one or me. During the time between the band removal and sleeve i got back into the habit of drinking with meals..... water, coffee, wine, cocktails.

        I find myself forgetting. In the past months i only threw up twice... so thats good, but i have felt nausea a few times. So now i set a timer on my phone or if im home, i use Alexa.
