first of all, congratulations on reaching one-derland!!!!!
second... yes. hair falls out and gets thin. and yes, you're doing a good thing by drinking the protein shakes. BUT, the rapid weight loss leads to major hormonal changes, and THAT'S the main reason our hair falls out.
there IS good news - IT COMES BACK!! and better than before [in most people - i've only seen one person whose hair didn't come all the way back].
so, chin up, tiffy... you're doing ok. it's temporary. short haircuts help hide the thinning, but not everyone wants to do that..
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
