  7. Hey Heather! Like everyone else, I am wishing you the very best on your upcoming journey. Also I personally want to thank you for all of your hard work and effort making these wonderful informative videos for us wig wearers. We love what you do! I'm sure a lot of us feel like we know you personally from watching your videos 🙂 Know that you will be in my prayers. BTW– Loving the Sweet Talk on you, looks great!

  8. Heather I love listening to you. Fair play being so open and knowledgeable.i agree let the appetite go that bands sounds wrong I agree.good luck.Pcos can be a bitch xxx

  9. Sounds like you've done a lot of thoughtful research. I never knew the differences between the weight loss procedures. I wish you the best and look forward to following your progress!

  10. Hi Heather, I had my VSG in Dec 2016 and I was 294 the day of surgery and down to 211 now and still losing. Best decision I had made so far. I did lose some of my hair hence I started wearing wigs in May of this year and still wearing them. Wishing you the best and hope your surgery goes well.

  11. Great info! Can hear the happiness and excitement in you voice to start this exciting new chapter in your life! Best Wishes to you, Heather! And thank you for being such a positive and inspirational person for others!💖👍💖

  12. Totally understand what your going through! I have PCOS, borderline diabetic (insulin resistant), and Spondylolisthesis amongst a few smaller issues. Just had lower spinal fusion last year, but it didn't take care of the pain. They did notice I have an issue with mild sleep apnea as well which explains why I stay so tired all the time. Plus, I've always had a big appetite and grew up learning unhealthy habits from my mother who's been obese for as long as I can remember. Needless to say, it's a struggle.

    Really appreciate your honesty and the info you share. I never fully understood the differences in the WLS options, but definitely see why VSG is your top choice.

    Looking forward to following your journey and seeing the results 🙂 Best wishes!

  13. You're beautiful & just about every wig looks great on you. Good luck and be blessed in your surgery…. also, what is the wig you are wearing and what color is it…. it's cute… p.s. I think you already look thinner… have you lost already…

  14. The best of luck to you Heather. As a person who has battled with weight issues all my life I totally understand your struggle. I can't wait to hear about your journey.

  15. Oh Heather..what a wonderful explaination..amazing..I wish you an uneventful sugery and a very speedy recovery..you are something else…muah! Sending you a big bear hug from Kennesaw..xxxox 🙂

  16. Thanks for sharing this info. I am less worried about you now, but still will be praying for the procedure and the recovery and for your weight loss journey. -Sheila

  17. Wishing you a speedy recovery, Heather. I am exactly as you describe yourself, mainly always feeling hungry, eating healthy, and needing to lose 80 pounds. I will follow your recovery posts, maybe I will decide to go for the same surgery! 🍀

  18. heather I am so grateful for the education and insight you share. I am 14 months out RNY, but the hair LOSS is very troubling, depressing and real for me. My mom had male pattern baldness and suffered for 40 years, no wig options, dying bald at age 95.
    I am so thin (hair wise)now and met you from your wig reviews, to prepare myself for the issue I am facing. RNY sped up the loss, but baby hairs are now showing up. I so appreciate you very much.My BMI was 59.9 now 36!!

  19. Thanks for doing this video cuz I've been throwing the idea around about the gastric sleeve surgery. I probably gained 30 or 40 lb in the past three to five years and not just that I'm uncomfortable feeling I would really like to look better like I used to and feel better also. I just got my first wig from your site recently and although I have to exchange it because it didn't look right on me I'm still looking forward to my next choice that I think I have picked tonight matter of fact. I have alopecia areata on top only so have been wearing a Topper in the past two years before that for 20 years I was using toppik hair fibers that were not the greatest look for me and the topper is pretty good but a lot of work because it was human hair and now I'm going for synthetic wig to try to make things easier on myself and a cuter Style so … thank you again Heather your different informational videos really have helped. It's nice to know that other women go through very similar things everyday things that I do and I like the online community of women that I have found through your site and videos 🙂

  20. Heather, I went with gastric bypass. Ever since my surgery, I NEVER get hungry. I only eat because I need to. It's odd, but it works.
