  1. Haven't been on for awhile, but I am back now. Going through some stress that's affecting my new eating habits. I haven't gained but I can't seem to stop eating. Any suggestions? I am afraid of going back to where I used to be.
  2. Back from vacation I did very well food wise especially when you are in Baltimore and there are restaurants all around, camping was much easier. I do need to get back on track though. I am determined to get below 200.
  3. Is anyone having extreme hair loss since surgery? I am so depressed, because my scalp is starting to shine through my hair. Any suggestions?

    Hi Annarita! I am from Kunkletown. I also have Dr. Harrison as my doctor. Hang in there. Don't give in to temptation.
  5. My husband has been making it difficult because all he wants to do is go out to eat and keeps bringing home junk food. I am a stress eater and he is making it very difficult for me to fight the urges. Any suggestions?
  6. Haven't been on for awhile been a little depressed. Still watching what I eat and doing well, but I have problem with water weight. It was going real well for awhile didn't need to take water pills or anything like it and now I swell just as much as it was before surgery. I think it's time to call the dr. It's hard to monitor your true weight on the scale when your retaining water.

Hair loss!!!

by ANNARITA on 07-16-2013 at 09:35 PM
Has anyone experienced severe hair loss? Since surgery I have lost so much hair it's depressing. Just wondering if it's normal.

Feeling Great!!!

I had my sleeve on Feb. 26, 2013 and was struggling with diabetes and other medical problems that come with being obese. Today I can say that it has been 4wks since I have taken any insulin or any other meds. It feels great to just get up and not have to worry about taking any medications. Life is good. Best decision ever made!!!!

I had my gastric sleeve on February 26th, 2013 so it has been about 4 weeks or so. In the first two weeks I lost 23lbs now four weeks out I feel like I am stuck. I haven't gained, but I haven't lost any, and I have been walking alot. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
