Do you like your FitBit?

They sell them at Costco. I'm tempted but want to know if it's just another useless piece of electronics that's complicated and uncomfortable.

It has been 2 years since my VSG. Although I set a goal weight of 160,I realize that this goal was not realistic for me.

What causes hair loss after sugery?

Wondering if it's the anesthesia? dietary changes? shock to the system? I notice so much hair loss when I shampoo. I have thicker hair so a little won't make much of a difference.
When do people notice regrowth? Does it in fact grow back?
The surgeon recommends 85 g protein---I usually fall short of that but get pretty close. I take biotin and zinc supplements.

I was in competant hands, in a beautiful, new facility. I awoke about 1 1/2 hrs later in a total fog, unaware of any pain, told that if I felt any to push a little button and it would relieve it. (morphine) I remember being SO thirsty and not allowed anything to quench it until I got clearance of some type. The few aware moments that I had were of extreme
