Lol....forgive my laughing but DITTO....got rid of scale so haven't weighed myself yet but day 1 after surgery was 3 lbs. Im 7 days out.....sooo hungry. And sick of liquids. Hope its only the head hunger everyone's telling me it is, because my head wants to eat a block of cheese and a jar of Peanut Butter. Hope it gets better soon for us.

I felt that way too. It wasn't hunger and I don't think it was even head hunger. I was just bored. Sitting at home after surgery not really being able to Don anything and all the TV shows is commercials about food. It passes...

I'm 5 weeks out and so sick of myself. Very slow recovery and if I read another book or watch more tv I'll smash it. My husband is the fat controller and when I try to talk about the really down days he tells me to be positive. It's a hard bloody lonely process and I have to remember to take a day at a time. fML

Post-Op regret is usually because you're in the phase where your surgery is all sacrifice with very little gain as you're still heavy.

Old bad habits are still wanting to be satisfied, you're on a restricted diet, it's tough.

This surgery is not a 1 week or a 1 month thing. It's a lifetime change. If you got it not knowing that, you're probably going to underperform in terms of your weight loss goals. If you can't manage some degree of food intake self control for the first few months while you're healing, you probably need emergency psychiatric intervention as this isn't something you can screw around with and not risk a potential blowout or tear.

When you go this done you signed up for a new life. Welcome to it.

Literally the exact things I want omg!! Ugh. It makes me mad at myself because I know I'm just bored and it's making me this way. But I have so many healthy recipes, and I just want to hurry up and be able to make them and EAT them!! That's why I'm craving all the unhealthy stuff cause I'm like if I can't even have the healthy stuff then F it [emoji30]lol I'm not gonna actually eat any of the stuff. I wouldn't be able to physically anyway! lol I'm really hoping after these two weeks it gets easier. I know I'll have to WORK for it after I'm past this phase but I WANT to!! I'm just mad that I can't move or eat ): you know??

A lot of people feel this way. Once you move away from the liquid portion of your food stages, it gets better. @Sleeved3 made a good point, though. Nothing about this journey is easy. NOTHING. It is hard, grueling work that requires patience, grit, and perseverance on a daily basis FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. And you haven't really even begun the real work yet. That comes later when it is much more about the choices you make than it is about the sleeve itself.

Hang in there. Focus on meeting your Protein and Water goals and work your plan. That is all you can do at this point if you want to be successful.

I went through this first few days, and I was reminded why I wanted my stomach reduced! I would literally gorge and eat whatever and feel sick afterwards, never going back to that. We had a pizza party yesterday at work and all my coworkers are eating this greasy huge slices of pizza & guess what? I didn't crave an ounce of it! This is a new chance for me & im so excited! 12dpo

      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".
