Okay, call me vain, but I have always been proud of my hair. I always considered it my best feature. Long, thick, hair other women envy....
Not anymore. I knew that hair loss was a side affect of WLS but hoped it would pass me by. No such luck. It started and gets worse every day. I didn't think it would make me so miserable, but it does. I'm sure no one else can see the difference, but I do.
It's supposed to last for several months, in which case I just hope I have some left when it's done. It will of course grow back, and there isn't anything I can do to stop it, so I guess I'll just have to grin and bear it.
As far as the weight loss is concerned. I'm up to 80 pounds lost. I've been stuck for the last few weeks and it's coming off very slow. I still have about 40 more to go, and I find myself impatient and frustrated. I guess it's not something most everyone would understand unless you've been or are morbidly obese.
Yes I look different and better, but according to the medical BMI scale I am still considered "obese". I long for the days of "overweight" and "normal".
