    Gastric sleeve journey

    I found that adding a green smoothie to my morning routine helped me (go to bathroom too!) -- 7/22/19 -- 268 to 11/5/19 - 207. I have lost a lot of inches (didn't take them unfortunately before surgery). I am down from 20/22 to a 16. Definitely get you a few small saucer plates (the ones they sit a coffee cup on). Good luck!

    Still feel hungry

    I'm going into my 9th week (7/22). I experienced a lot of "head hunger," especially while watching tv! I have small cravings, but I just don't have access to it (don't buy anything for the house). Honestly, like BlueAngelEyes, I have to make myself eat sometimes. Just try to slow down while drinking (that's mostly for gas issues!). Just be prepared to keep up your water and protein intake (do the protein shakes as long as you can in the next few weeks. You got this!

    8 weeks post op...

    I am right there with you! Headed into my 9th week (sleeved 7/22). I am seeing inches come off more than the bloody numbers on the scale...honestly, I stopped stepping on it. I just do my water and protein like others say. I am having issues where I don't really want to eat, but make myself to stay on track with the protein. Things just taste funny!
