I haven’t written much in my journal these last 10 days or so, but than I have not had anything to say. 😆 I haven’t heard anything about the MRI yet because the surgeon is on holiday and won’t be back until my appointment which is the 24th. the knee has been better and has not gone out for ages UNTIL last night of course. After that stellar week of weight loss that I last wrote about, I managed to lose a measly .6 of a pound the next week and this week so far, I have managed to lose 1.4 pounds. so it is still a downward trend but not a fast one. Today just stayed the same as yesterday’s weight, so still am at my lowest ever which is having 75.2 pounds (5 stone 5.2 pounds) off. I have noticed hair falling out. With all my supplments and protein, with extra zinc and sea kelp I did not anticipate that I would lose any, but some is coming out. The good thing is that I have hair that is thick like a horses tail, so it is not noticeable to other people. But my husband has said that he can tell something is wrong when he finds my long blonde hair on the dog, rather than the dogs hair on me. 😯 My mom told me that it is normal and that they learned from their support group that this happens around the 3-5 months period. I am 4 months and week or two. Mom said that it was about a month that she noticed the hair coming out and than it slowed down. It isn’t huge clumps or anything, I can only imagine without supplments and sufficent protein that it would be a lot worse. Like I said, not too much to talk about. Been cleaning out the closet and setting asid bin bags of clothes that will need new homes and bin bags of clothes that need to be altered. But another 5-30 pounds and there won’t be anything that I will be able to wear. That is good and bad. 😉 hehe 😉 😉
