Got a question... How do I get the little icon Medifast menu thing off my samsung reality's homescreen? Looking forward for any response. Second question.. Okay, so there are two cosmetic side effects of my upcoming.


That I haven't necessarily been looking forward to. As I'm sure many other people have, I've been concerned about loose excess skin and hair loss. Not a big enough concern to worry about it too much - I mean, losing the weight and getting healthy will definitely be worth it whether I have loose skin and thin hair or not. BUT, I've been looking up other people's thoughts and recommendations anyway because I figure I might as well do everything I can to minimize the undesirable results. Here's what I've settled on:.

Loose skin - Okay, so there's really no telling for sure who's going to have it and how much we'll have. I'm just figuring I might as well accept that I'm going to have it. But, I saw a YouTube video (Amelia - I think she used to post on here) in which she says that she looks at her loose skin as a battle scar. I liked that attitude and I think I'll adopt it. If I can get a tummy tuck, then great...if not, I'll just let the loose skin serve as a reminder of how far I've come..

Hair loss - I am so getting a wig. Here's why: Hair loss really seems unavoidable. Some people have less hair loss than others, but from what everyone's said, it's just part of having the.


And losing so much weight in such a short amount of time. The only thing that really seems to help for everyone is making sure to get enough protein in...the other products that people have tried...well, some people say they think it helps a little, but most people seem to think it doesn't make a difference. It will grow back in eventually, but in the mean time, what to do?.

My mother-in-law has been wearing a wig for about two years now. She had unexplained hair thinning (not balding) that nothing would help with so she eventually just gave up and got a high quality wig. I swear to you, her wigs look so natural. No one can guess that it isn't her real hair. Seriously. And it has helped her self confidence immensely.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my thoughts. All in all, I don't think we should let these two little unpleasantries hold us back. Anyone else want to share how they turned a negative side effect into a positive resolve?..

I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..

Good to hear that you are making negatives into positives. A great outlook is a tremendous help in healing and self.



As far as the thinning hair, I think it also goes by if you have thin hair to begin with or a thick full head of hair..

I happen to have a very thick full head of even though I know I've lost quite a bit........noone notices. Even when I was getting my hair done, she said that I would never have to worry about going bald or thin............I.


She meant my hair for the thin part.......LOL..

The loose skin........not so fond of it, but I can keep it a bit uncomfortable with my hubby seeing it......but luckily.......he loves me. Hopefully someday a tummy tuck........I can dream for now...

I'm 11 months out now, and have experienced both the hair loss and the excess skin issues..

On the excess skin, I don't have any new skin I didn't have preop. I had fat rolls as an obese gal, and they are still there. Just deflated. I have had an apron skin since I was 8 years old. I had the apron before.


And still have it now. Its not like all of a sudden all this skin started showing up. Its really not as bad as perceived when you are a preop. The skin I have is just as noticable as it was before, but I have coverage through my insurance to get it removed, so that's what I am in the process of doing now. Just waiting on hearing back from my plastic surgeons office to get a date scheduled for hopefully sometime in February..

On the hair loss issue, I have posted a million times about it, LOL. I did have hair loss, and I have pictures posted to show it. I did cry a few times, but looking back, it really wasn't as bad as I thought it was at the time. Mine started at about 3 months post op, peaked at 5 months post op, and then started growing back at 7 months out. And now, although not as full as it once was, is bouncing back in it's texture and curl, I have a ton of short little hairs growing and I'm really quite happy with it currently. I believe that the biotin I take did the most benefit in my hairs recovery, as well as some other things I did.

I got thin, and yes I could see my shiny scalp, but I was never bald. My hair up in a pony tail, you couldn't even tell. And no one ever commented on my thinning, it was more me noticing it..

So I guess what I am trying to say is, yes those things happen, but don't stress, just minor bumps in the road to a much greater quality life!.

Wishin you the best!!!..

I used to have thick hair but it has really thinned out over the past two years. I've thought about the possibility of needing a wig post op but really, I know I just wouldn't like the hassle of it. I'll just deal with thinner hair, but that's just me...

I have crazy thick hair usually...I rather enjoyed (am enjoying) the amount of hair I have now...its thinned out nicely.....

I too take biotin and have a heapload of little 2 -3 inch hairs coming in.....

The hair loss doens't last long...and honestly..NOBODY except me..and my hubby who saw me pulling out handfuls...even noticed...

I agree with everyone else about the hair loss issue. I also have very thick, curly hair and have lost quite a bit.....but, I think I am the only one that notices it. I just wear it in ways that make is look less thin...
