    Eating & Fullness.

    I start to feel that feeling too, a little below my chest. I have learned to stop eating when that happens, bc I don't feel "full" yet, but I know from experience now that if I keep eating, I will be miserably full for the next 30-60 minutes (I haven't thrown up since my surgery, but I've had extreme discomfort from eating too much, and I think I've learned from that.) I think you're right though, feeling 'full' now is not going to feel the same as it did before the surgery. Sent from my LM-V405 using BariatricPal mobile app

    Eating & Fullness.

    I've lost about 30lbs in less than a month without measuring, but she does give me general guidelines, i.e 3oz protein with 2oz vegetables; but she wants me to be able to kinda "figure it out" on my own I think-- like, visually. Without a scale. I.e, how a fistful = 3 oz of protein. Not *exact*, but something I can realistically do and follow throughout my life (measuring out all of my food for the rest of my life is definitely not a sustainable way of life for me, or I could've just done that through dieting alone, without the surgery.) But mainly looking for any success stories of people who don't measure out each meal? And rely on their sense of fullness? Long term? Sent from my LM-V405 using BariatricPal mobile app
  3. I had my sleeve done 4/23, and I'm on "soft foods". At my 2 week appointment with the surgeon and dietician, the dietician told me that I need to learn "intuitively" what it feels like to be full, so she doesn't really push the whole "measuring out of foods" thing. I'm wondering if anyone else's dietician is the same, and if you have been successful with not weighing out foods and just knowing when to "stop", and learning what that true "fullness" feels like, without over doing it?

    How long

    It really does get less painful each day. So even though a week sounds like an eternity, you won't be at this high a pain level even 2 days from now Sent from my LM-V405 using BariatricPal mobile app

    10 days out-- questions!

    I actually have an incredible amount of energy, even just on liquids. Im walking so much more already than i was before the surgery! Maybe that's a good sign? Sent from my LM-V405 using BariatricPal mobile app
  7. I had the sleeve done 4/23, I'm still on liquid diet. I'm so confused, because i hear about the "honeymoon period" where you're not hungry at all, and this hasn't been my experience AT ALL!!! I feel like im starving. Also, in the last few days, liquid has been going down so much easier! Too easy?!? I can drink 8-10 oz of broth in one short sitting. Am i stretching out my pouch already? And I do not have trouble at all meeting my water goals. I put mio (calorie free flavor) in my water, and i can drink it just fine! I mean not CHUG IT, but i can do a decent gulp without it hurting my stomach like it did in the first few days. Is this bad?!? I don't see my surgeon again until the 9th (6 more days).

    I had incredible pain as well-- way more than i ever expected, and it was especially worse because any bariatric support groups i was looking at all talked about how it was basically pain free. Im on my 10th day from the surgery (i also had a hiatal hernia repaired), and really only in the last 2 days have i felt able to sit up at a 90 degree angle or move around without much pain. Today is the first day i can bend down, and i cant even do it fully yet. But each day got less painful, i do remember that! I was only in the hospital one night, but i really do think the beds make it worse. I also live alone. Sent from my LM-V405 using BariatricPal mobile app
