Another NSV and hair loss

Thursday, February 12, 2015

I can see my necklace. I know, it's a very small NSV (Non-Scale Victory for the newbies). I have a necklace with a small pendant that, in the past I've only been able to see in a mirror beause it was up under my chin like a choker. Today I can look down and see it actually resting on my upper chest. It actually LOOKS like a 22" chain instead of 18".

The second thing I'm noticing (and this is definitely NOT any kind of victory) is some pretty serious hair loss. I talked with a lot of people who had weight loss surgery (most of them had the roux-en-y) and ALL of them warned me I'd experience some hair loss but I didn't realize it would be so MUCH. Wow, when I shower I literally pull out large handfuls.

When they first told me I figured it would be no big deal because I have a LOT of hair to begin with, but I'm losing so much I'm beginning to get a little concerned. My stylist has recommended I start taking biotin, but I already take so many supplements I'm not anxious to add another pill.

Ah, well, at least I'm losing weight.

    I had gastric sleeve surgery 2.5 years ago. The hair loss was great! I purchased Biotin shampoo at a vitamin store. It helped a lot. I've kept my weight off but it's work!
