So during my online readings and searches I’ve pondered the thought of adding B-12 injections. My levels are low and lately I’ve just been sluggish and tired….all the time. Like consistent since my last bout of Covid about 6mo ago.

anywho….I’ve come across this B12 + mic injections because if I can feel less sluggish and loose a few pounds, then why not.

As a side note I’ve gained a few pounds from my lowest weight. Currently 147 @ 5’5….I’ve tried to convince myself it’s due to muscle gain 😂 but summer is coming and I’m being honest with myself. My workout schedule has gone from easily 6 days a week to maybe 4 on a good week.

my work schedule has been crazy.

also still have the lapband….if it was a relationship I’d list it as “it’s complicated” because I love and hate it 😂

enough rambling- let me know if you’ve tried it and your thoughts!

also these are self administered once approved by the dr.

Ive taken B12 shots in the past and noticed no weight loss, but I wear a daily B12 patch from PatchAid and do notice a difference in my energy levels.

If your levels are low then I would definitely recommend adding the injection and seeing how you feel afterwards. Do you take a bariatric Vitamin?

From what I understand if you actually have low B12 then the shots make a significant difference in energy levels. I have a friend that gets them and when she doesn’t have anyone to do the injection and runs low she really notices it in her energy levels. I haven’t heard her mention any effect on weight but she is thin so I don’t know if she would notice a couple pounds one way or another (she’s not like us on the scale everyday).

love the part where you say she’s not like us on the scale everyday! I don’t know if that will ever change either….😭

Thank you!

I think I’m going to give it a try-I found a spot that will ship directly to me so I can administer my own injections.
For those of you looking for updates I will post them here!

I would check with your dr. If your levels are low they just send a script to pharmacy and you self administer them. Im guessing it’s a lot cheaper through insurance. I recommend that you get labs to monitor your levels after doing the injections too because there are side effects of getting too much in your system (some serious). I am anxious to hear if this helps with your energy and or weight.

      Having gall bladder surgery in a few days and I so hope the recovery is easier than the one from the modified DS! I could use a bit of luck/pep talk for a change. I'm starting to be able to walk around without experiencing dizziness, but it would be great if the random pain in my chest and abdomen would go away!!

      Today was rough...
      I've been experiencing a headache all day today that just won't go away. I'm thinking it's now progressing into a migraine. Does anyone else get headaches from taking vitamin B12? I did some research and learned that usually a lack of B12 causes headaches. But I've noticed when I take it, I have reoccurring headaches. 😫
