Time to digest

So my trip to see my guy in Phoenix was a total disaster. Not him and I , but his mother. Oh, I don't even know where to start with this one. I just got back home, and I think I need time to mull it all over in my head before divulging it to cyber space. I hope you all understand.

As far as my weight, I am still losing and I am now down to 260 lbs. However, my hair is starting to fall out. I have pretty thick hair, but I think I am noticing more hair in my drain than normal. I am a little worried about that. I am also having trouble eating. I go to the Dr tomorrow, so I will let him know. I think it might just be stress, but I have never had stress make me lose my appetite before. Before wls, I would tuck into a bowl of ice cream to feel better. Now eating has become somewhat of a nuisance. I have no urge to do it and when I actually try to eat, I get two or three bites down before my stomach tells me to stop. I don't know, i do feel like it is just me being stressed though. I start my new job next week, my mom is really sick, my boy's mom is crazy and hateful, my boy thinks he is sick, I am dropping weight like crazy and on top of it all I am moving. So I have just a couple things on my mind.

On a brighter note, Phoenix was hot, but beautiful. I posted a pic of me in the Superstition Mountains. My boy is beautiful. I miss him terribly though. Oh here I go again. I guess I am not ready to write about this yet. I promise as soon as I can I will.

I'm so sorry you're having a rough time! It does certainly sound like you're under a lot of stress, and that could be contributing to both the lack of appetite and the hair loss.

I've read a lot of advice that says to take biotin supplements to help mitigate the hair loss. There's a great chewable one by Solaray that I found at our local vitamin store.

Is it possible for you to carve out a little time for yourself to help with relaxation? Maybe a trip to one of the quickie massage places (you can get a 1/2 hour massage there for as little as $20 sometimes), or a visit to the library for some fun, non-intellectual reading? I know when I'm stressed, even grabbing a 1/2 hour of "me" time can really make a difference.

Hang in there, it will be ok. Sorry his mom is hateful, whatever the circumstance. I haven't talked to my mother in law in 3 years! Best 3 years ever! You are looking great.

Your hair will fall out, its a side effect from both the anethesia from the surgery and the massive and rapid weight loss. Mine started around 3 months, and im 6 months out, and it has gotten a lot less falling out.

Also around 3 months was when my nausea started acting up again, but I dont know if that surgery related or not. Make sure you are on a good anti-acid type thing, that helped me with my nausea
