Not a whole lot has been happening lately so sorry I haven’t been posting that much. I am 11 weeks post op sleeve gastrectomy and I’m doing great!
Hair Loss! I have been experiencing lots of hair loss in the last couple weeks. I was losing some hair prior to surgery but this is a lot more than usual. Two weeks ago I decided to chop off my hair so now it’s shoulder length. It has helped with the mental part of the hair loss. I’m seeing shorter hairs coming out of my head instead of long ass strands of hair. It took me a while to get used to the short hair but I like it. It’s perfect for all of this hot weather we’ve been having here in California.
Exercise!! I’m still working on T25 it’s going really well working out in the morning before work. On Sunday I went for a hike with the boyfriend and it’s a hike we normally do. Before surgery it was a struggle for me to do this hike. A really good workout. On Sunday we were out there for two hours and I barely felt like I was breaking a sweat. Physical activity is getting easier and I love it! I’m a runner at heart and it makes me so happy to think that I’ll be able to run faster and longer than I used to.
I mapped out my goals for the year 2018 as far as running goes and I’m really excited to get started on training but I’m waiting until I lose another 15 pounds so I don’t aggravate an old injury in my foot. So for now I’m sticking with the T25 and after that I’m going to try out PiYo. My goals for next year are big ones but these goals are the main reason I got this surgery so I’m confident I will complete them.
Yea so things are going really well. I’m excited to hit my 3 month mark because that’s when most of my dietary restrictions will go away. Like I’ll be able to have raw fruits and vegetables. I’ve only been able to have cooked fruits and veggies and when it’s hot outside that’s the last thing you want. I’m so looking forward to some nice refreshing fruits and veggies.
That’s all I have for now peeps. Talk to you next time!
