Being emotional is all part of the process. It is very normal in the early stages. You whole system has just got turned around. It will take a few months before it settles down.

There is also research that show that weight loss cause release of estrogen which will make you emotional.

i've been emotional as well, always considered myself to have an even keel but lately i'm just sad, i know it's partly because I'm mourning food, and because i don't have that i'm wondering if I made the right choice. I know it was the right choice but the anxiety just keeps bringing self doubt up over and over, like a broken record. I'm making a call tomorrow to my pcp for a therapist to get me through at least these 6 weeks of full liquid diet I'm required to do.

I promise you it will get better. I thought I could not get through the emotional mess you are in after the surgery. First month is hell. 2nd month gets easier....by the middle of 2nd-third month you are actually happy.

I've been down too; I swear if it wasnt for this app, I might've lost my mind already. It really helps to hear from others going through this. My husband tries to be susupportive but he really has no idea. I was sleeved the 14th and honestly was not as prepared for this life change as I thought I was. I know that my 23lb loss is great, but Ive already platoed for like 4 days and feel like I should be down another 10 by now atleast! I mean really i'm not eating like anything!!

Mine little episodes have been tapering off. Which is good, mornings are the hardest. By the end of the day, I'm happy that I got through but then I dread the next day because it's going to hard in the morning all over again. I do feel a little more in control but not myself just yet.

Sorry to hear about that! What a bummer!. I get extremely weepy around my DH. He is out of town on business- this is our norm but right now I cry each time I see him. Especially because he is so worried about me.

Which I should add, my crying only makes him worry more.

After the gastric sleeve procedure we must deal with our hormones. Some of us have more problems than others. Hang in there and it too should calm down to your norm. Hang in there! I cried at the drop of a pin for a few weeks.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
