Well, what I started with , while significantly less than I ever would have put on my plate before sleeve surgery, was a much fuller plate than yours. That said, what I ended with arguably looked exactly the same as what I started with.

I was able to eat 1 (of 2) piece of ham, one bite of mashed potatoes, none of the turkey, 1-2 bites of green bean casserole, and about 2 ounces of sweet potato. At the end, I honestly could hardly tell myself what I had eaten vs what I hadn't. And the strange/fun fact thing was the whole time everyone else was eating, I was sitting there with a full plate not ogling what I could not eat. It was just "stuff" sitting there, of virtually no interest to me.

Chalk up a win for sleeve surgery!

Mine looked the same way. It's my first Thanksgiving too. Strange not to have seconds and even stranger was that I was so stuffed with so little. Happy Day!

Good job with your eating guys!! And Happy Thanksgiving!!

I am only 4 1/2 weeks post op so I was able to only eat 2.4oz of turkey with a very little gravy on it. I put a kiddie size spoonful of mashed potatoes on my plate, but didn't touch them. I was full and pretty satisfied.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
