Well, it's happening ...

I'm 3 months and 6 days post op, and I've begun to notice a significant amount of hair loss. I didn't have much to begin with (I've always had fine, thin hair), so I really don't need this! It's not falling out in clumps or anything, but when I'm just running conditioner through my hair in the shower, a lot more comes out onto my hands. Oh well, guess I should have known I'd be one of the ones it would happen to. :(

Wow, it's been a while!

Things have been rather hectic in my life since my last post. We moved, classes have started again (I work at a university) and we're hosting a party at our new place this weekend. Since moving, we've had a lot of problems with the well water that have essentially caused us to be unable to cook much because of not being able to clean dishes without heating up water in the microwave 6 cups at a time (not a fun task!). So, I've not been eating as well as I know I should be. Despite that (and partly because of having to run all over the 4 buildings of the college I work for within the university), I'm now at a total loss of 57lbs!!!! I'm _thrilled_ with the loss both in how I look and how I feel. Although, I recently came down with a little cold, and I'm wondering if I'm more susceptible to colds because of the lack of complete nutrition.

Anyways, sorry for the long hiatus. I'm sure I'll post when I hit the below 200lb mark as that's going to be a very big deal.
