Just how much have I lost?

Hair one day, gone tomorrow

Why is this woman posting a picture of her sink you ask? Well I am trying to show the amount of hair that falls in my sink while I am blowing my hair dry these days. I guess it has been about 6 weeks or so that this has been happening. This doesn't count the hair on the floor or in the shower and it is quite alarming. I wash my hair every other day now and switched shampoos to see if that would give me a little more volume.
Now I am no baldy but I can tell my hair is thinning in the front. I sure no one else has noticed but this does seem like a bit of hair coming out every other day.

I have read some posts that hair loss is due to lack of protein. Since I have noticed my hair coming out I have been very good at making sure I am getting about 60 grams of protein a day which is what my doctor said to do. I also take vitamin D, and adult vitamins daily. I need to start taking the Caltrate I bought right after surgery, although I don't think it will do anything.
I have also read that losing your hair has nothing to do with protein but more to do with the surgery people experience 3-6 months earlier.
Either way its happening and I hope it doesn't last much longer.

In other news the scale is standing still at 207. I go for my next fill on Thursday.

  1. Hi, I'm T and I just found your blog. Good stuff. When I saw my nutritionist last he mentioned hair loss is from the lack of calories you are now consuming. Nothing to do with protein or vitamins. I guess hair growth and fat go hand in hand. It explains why I've always had good hair. hahaha

    Hope it levels out soon!
