This blog is dedicated to the low-carb menu challenge presented by Jimmy Moore. I'm living the Louisiana low carb lifestyle, where low-carb is the new way to go ! I live southwest of New Orleans, Louisiana....have three awesome kids. We are deep down in the heart of sweet Cajun Country, where we kick back and relax, go hunting, fishing, or make groceries! My doctor told me that my blood pressure numbers were getting too high, so I had to loose weight. She challenged me with ten pounds in three months. That was October 7, 2008. I lost 26 pounds !!! In February of 2011, I found that I had gained a few pounds more than I would have liked, weighing in at 170 pounds. I had to get back into the swing of living the low carb life again !! I am loving the 'low-carb' style and wish to contiue it . I exercise three times a week at the gym, and off the 'off' days, I learn to RELAX !! November 2011, finds me in different circumstances -- a new lifestyle, great community of friends and a challenge to keep that 45 pounds that I lost OFF. Feel free to read my blog, browse around, or just sit a spell!!

Test Results are IN !

and they are that everything is NORMAL !! (Guess that depends on who you ask right ?)

I'm loosing hair, but the blood tests and thyroid test are completely normal...

So now what ? I'm taking the Biotin and also multi vitamins.

I guess I have to wait and see if it 'repairs' itself.

Not too many people out there are reading my blog nowadays, (cept the ye old faithful ones !), so I really dont know if anyone ELSE out there has had hair loss after weight loss.

Guess we can't pick and choose, can we ??

So I'm back to square one... (Oh boy!)

Hope everyone else is doing well.

Have a Blessed Evening..

What did your doctor suggest as a "next step"? Wait and see?

I'm still researching the 'hair loss' article. I've been assigned a few other topics and there are a few family matters that I need to attend to first.

Keep digging on your side too. See what you can find on the 'net and beyond. There's bound to be a solution out there. Let's see if we can discover it!

Take good care!

That is good to hear :) Well something you may consider.. it helped my mother.. she went to Hawaii to do a clense..during the clense you really clean yourself out ( you can see what comes out) and you will be surprised what comes out but the thing is that afterwords nutritients are more easily absorbed in your intestines and in my Mothers case here hair loss stopped..unfortunatley for my father it didnt stop hehe

Its rather expensive.. but woth a try.. I can get you contact info if you are really interested..

Come back in a couple of months he said, this is the dermatologist. I thought for sure there were tests to find out if you were not taking enough vitamins, or which ones you were lacking ? HELP ??

LOL.. I'm on the biotin and multi vitamin... although I'm not quite sure whats going on here.

The cleanse, oh my I thank you for the suggestion, but I dont think I'll go there. I had a colonscopy a couple years ago, so I'm good. Gotta be brave to do that. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Yep, Harry, perhaps I can be one of the people you interview for your hair loss article, a real candidate aye ?

Thanks for all the suggestions, yall, KEep em coming.. :)

Hope the biotin and multi vitamin work. I lost hair when I was pregnant with my son 19 years ago and it never came back. While I was pregnant I lost 70 pounds. I had morning sickness all day long and it lasted the whole pregnancy. So I'm thinner on top. I never lost any more but didn't gain what I had lost either. Unfortunately the weight came back but not the hair.... I notice more than others do.

Hope you find an answer.

tHANK you for your comments, New Vision. Seems like I lost the weight, (good things) and then something else crops up. Funny isn't it ? Thanks for sharing ;)
