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.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
