in my pre-op stages to get the sleeve I'm realizing how much I was an emotional eater because I'm trying to watch what I'm eating and do what the doctor is telling me to do. Did anybody suffer from your stomach feeling full but your brain doesn't? I drunk a smoothie they had strawberry papaya, squash and zucchini my stomach feels full but in my mind I want to eat? When you have the surgery does that go away or is it just self-discipline?

Surgery doesn't take away the head hunger. That's something you have to work on.

What she (the above poster) said. Plus, smoothies go through you pretty fast. I feel fuller for longer when I eat dense Protein.

Nope. The surgery is a tool and is on your tummy. The head hunger is a real issue and struggle for many of us. It's important to do the head work. There is a thread in the General Forum about just this subject. It's not magic bean surgery. To me, the head hunger is more of a challenge to contend with and change lifelong behaviors than is the actual true hunger.
