    Forgot to mention that I am 43. Have always had long thick beautiful hair. Ive suffered from hypothyroidism since I was 15 and havegone through several rounds of losing hair due to TSH being too low or too high butit went away everytime after adjusting my medication. For thefirst time myhairisshedding profusely notdue to thyroid. Am I eatg too less? Iused to be on 1500/1600 cals anddid not lose wt so Inhad to cut down.

    I'm having it too. I'm eating 1300-1400 right now but there was a period where I was eating a lot less. I had to add some things I cut out back in because I wasn't getting enough calories. Now I'm consistently eating 1200-1400 and the hair loss hasn't stopped yet.

    If it's from poor nutrition/low calories, it could take some time (think about 6 months).

    Well that sucks.. lol

    Anyhoo, about a few weeks ago, I started eating/adding simple chilled iceberg lettuce salads to my main meal. WOW...I'm so in love with chilled Avocado Caesar salads, simple chilled iceberg, tomato, red onion salads and chilled iceberg salads in general--I LOVE THEM NOW and have one daily.

    I LOVE crunchy iceberg lettuce! Adding avocado will definitely make it more filling- that's a great idea!

    My clothing keeps getting longer. With less material being taken up by girth, one of my shirts is nearly long enough to wear as a (very short) skirt, and I am nearly tripping over the bottoms of my stretch pants. Almost time for new cloths.

    Wheee, shopping! :smiley:

    I hate shopping. I'm hopping my pants will stay on until January. I might have to pull out a bungee cord to use as a belt.

    I hate shopping too. But I hate it less now.

    Probably don't want to lose your pants - but drafty.

    Especially as the thermostat keeps dropping. Way too much hanging out in the breeze! I expect in about another 30 lbs, I'll be so excited to go shopping for some new clothes. I would love to be able to get by with what I already have until then.

    Do it online! use the sizing chart and a tape measure to figure out what size you are and then order that and the next size down. Most places will throw in free delivery if you spend more than a certain amount (usually $50) and then you can shop from the comfort of your sofa and try everything on at your leisure. Whatever doesn't fit you can just send back!

    Definitely my preferred method of shopping!
