    How lovely of you to say so! I'm fortunate (in a weird way) that I have had multiple cancers & chemo, so balding/hair loss is not new. Just still a surprise that I am vain! This time it jumped ship on the crown and front, so I just took the scissors to it in the bathroom and cut it down to an inch. I look a bit like a transvestite monk, IMHO!

    I had a couple of wigs in gray from last "fall out". I watched PattiesPearls YouTube on how to cut and style yourself. And I have a new one (curlier as my natural hair is/was) so I'm kind of tickled to see how that looks.

    My oldest girl was here this week overnight, and she rather liked my sparse hair -- but then again, she's seen me with none at all. I do have a lovely shaped head!

    I had a difficult time with the vitamins -- found gummy ones! I added biotin (gummies) and I've done well on the protein, all of my bariatric labs are normal, and I am so grateful that it has always come back. If not, wigs. Or maybe a tattoo on my head -- I've got 2 elsewhere, so maybe?
    Again, thank you for your kindness

    You are beautiful! Since you are a Registered Nutritionist/Dietician what are your thoughts on this surgery reversing my diabetes or at least bringing my A1C down to normal range without daily fight! Of course I want great weight-loss too. ( I posted this message before but I think I put it I the wrong spot )

    You are so kind to send me well wishes. Thank you so much. I've been lurking around for months and you are actually my very first post lol!! It does look like we have a lot in common though. I've had a couple of bumps myself getting through the process and my surgery is now likely in December. It seems like I've been waiting forever. But as they say, 'Anything worth having is with working (or waiting!) for'. And it's actually been good for me. I've learned an awful lot about myself. My last pre-op appointment is December 6, so likely 2-3 weeks after that. Hopefully my date will be finalized soon.

Waves of disappointment

by simplyseahorse on 01-09-2018 at 12:13 PM
HaHa I just looked back at my last blog post about how things were about to start happening to me now! That was in November. That was right before things stopped happening as far as progress in my bariatric services office. If I can offer one little morsel of advice above all others - DO NOT rely on anyone to verify your insurance, make appointments, follow up on labs - NOTHING! Give yourself a time limit - wait 3 days, then call yourself. I would be a month into recovery if I had done this

Swimming, Swimming

Getting closer - now it is just down to these final details of getting stuff turned in. I have had the tests, gotten the clearances, but have to wait on the final approval and then I will get my surgery date. Funny, I had planned to go on a cruise for Christmas, but then I heard that our insurance at work was changing, so I went into high gear to get my surgery before the end of the year, and I am not even upset about missing the cruise. I am much more excited about getting started on this journey

A Seahorse's Journey with the Sleeve

by simplyseahorse on 10-09-2017 at 12:37 PM
So...I have decided to do this thing. It took about a year to decide, and now that I am over 100 lb above my adjusted body weight, it'is about time!

I have decided to be a seahorse on my journey, floating through the sometimes scary waters....because it is better than being what I actually am... a fat dietitian. I have actually had patients tell me that I need to lead by example. Boy will I be happy when some of those same patients can see a difference in my weight!
