    I made it all the way to the 5 month marker but started losing hair at the top, and it doesn't feel as thick or bouncy as it did. But I'm not balding, but I can see my scalp in places I'd rather not...

    Re: Skinny legs - Fat Belly Help

    One thing I've noticed is my fat migrates. When I first started losing lots of weight, my upper thigh and arms were losing diameter, but my stomach was still "fluffy". Then I started noticing that...

  5. Re: At 1 month post-op....what was your energy level?

    The first two weeks were "interesting" with energy, particularly week 1 with only liquids. By the end of the month, I felt I was at least 90% back to normal. The main transition for me was learning...

    I am so envious of you!!! We used to live on the front range, and got up into the mountains very regularly. I miss them badly!

    Re: Whats wrong with me?

    Re: To poop or not to poop.......

    That's a good one I haven't heard of. I have used stool softener tablets and also fiber tablets, but neither really fixed things totally. Lately I've been trying to diversify with more salads and...
  11. Re: Any of the sleeve veterans have advice on hair loss?

    Same here - my doctor warned me that getting enough protein would help with the hair, so that's been my focus. But I still find more than normal stray hairs when I shower in the morning. I'm on the...

    Re: feeling ill 51/2 weeks after surgery

    Others may think differently, but the symptoms you're describing - unable to eat, lethargic, shivering, possible fever -- don't sound too typical. The protein rich diet with not much else can cause...

    Re: Newby. Scheduled for GS on the 16th

    Honestly, no. Perfection is great, but minor cheats happen. The part to worry about is when you go on the all liquid diet, or post surgery when you slowly progress from clear liquids to full...

    Re: Question on insurance denial

    Not totally sure what to say, I always figure if I'm a very bad person in this life, I'll find myself filing health insurance claims in hell. But I'll give it a shot.

    Re: Can I really lose at least 10 lbs?

    No problem on that. It's very doable. If all you're eating is protein shakes and no real solids, then your body does some strange things to compensate for the sudden absence of carbs and fats. If...

    Re: Concerned

    Worst case scenario I've had in six weeks is something I eat doesn't get along with my stomach, and it comes back up. Sometimes it's just "foam", in more severe cases it's the stomach contents. ...

    Know that the first two weeks can be a challenge as your body adapts. After the first two weeks, the world gets much better, pretty fast. Know that there's going to be some adaptation to not being...

    Re: Goodbye X's!

    I'm still in the fluffy sizes but at least am down two sizes. My current dream is to go into a store and not have to do crazy jumps and bends to find the large sizes. Very motivating!!
