What is head hunger?  Is it a short term thing with long term consequences or the reverse.  How do you know when it ends or if it may repeat?  Can you prevent it before it begins.  

Thank You,


Heather

Topic: RE: Are there any old timers still in the forum?

I am still here from back in the day.  I view the message boards infrequently as I have found certain aspects of the site to have changed and are not quite as user friendly.

Thank You,


Heather

Topic: Are there any old timers still in the forum?

I miss the support and fun we used to have in the early 2000's.  My surgerversary was 12/23/04.  Any old school folks still online?

Hi....

 

I caught a case of head hunger bad and gained 35 lbs.  I haven't been able to take it off, but I have been at the same weight for at least 6 years.

Has your doc approved sublingual tablets for under your tongue or vitamin patches?  THey also have a nasal spray called nascobal.

I didn't really see results until I was 8 weeks out.  You will have lots of water retention and build up from your surgery still in your body. I looked bloated and people kept asking when I was going to look like I was losing.  I think your weight loss and freedom from diabetes meds is great!

Wow Lia, your results are inspiring, congratulations!!  WOW!!  You look fantastic!  

I'm also in MD, can I ask the name of your tummy tuck Dr.?  I'm 8 years out and pretty ready to get my tummy done.

Thanks.

Topic: RE: Weight loss without revision????

Hey, Thanks for that reminder- it is doable..  I had my greatest success with a food and activity journal tracking: a low carb/high protein diet, and lots of water & excercise.

I'm 8 yrs out and I started regaining after my knees gave out 5 years ago.    My knees are still jacked up, but I'm trying to get off the excess weight.  I recently started going to a Cognative Behavior group & I joined the local gym; I just love Zumba and yoga.  

"Back to Basics"- love it.  Thanks, and keep pressing forward.

Has anyone on the board had this problem?
