I’m 2 wks out from surgery (3/6) and have just started in mushy foods. I had two bites of scrambled eggs and I was completely full! 2 hours have passed and I’m still full to the point that I can’t even sip water... Is this normal? How long will this last? Definitely not getting my Water in right now....😩

I have no wisdom for you, @LeeLee Luv, but that is AWESOME that you're getting that "full" signal from your new pouch/sleeve. From what I've read from others on these boards, people don't always get that signal and wind up getting ill because they didn't know to stop. I would definitely keep a log of this occurrence and see if it happens the next time you try mushy food.

All the best! ((HUGS))

I’ve been on mushy foods for about a week and had my surgery on 3/3. At first, I couldn’t feel when I got full so I overate and it sucked! That’s awesome you can already feel it! Now I can eat about 1 and half scrambled eggs and feel full for a while.

It’s such a strange thing to feel so full After 2 bites....

I know! I love it! We’re so used to cleaning the plate. I’ve been using little bowls and little plates.

It's such a weird feeling, I don't feel full as much as I feel like I couldn't physically take another bite. Totally different feeling to when I'd stuff myself with food to the point of nausea and vomiting. But a much better feeling. I think it must be like the feeling a person with a heathy relationship with food must feel when they put their fork down. I'm amazed that I sit down to my tiny bowl of food, take 6 bites, and I'm done. And I'm close to 6 months out!

I went through a similar experience. I had my surgery January 7th and I’m just now starting to recognize hunger. The first month or so I had to make myself take 1-2 sips or bites of something every couple of hours. Headaches and shaky hands were the main signal letting me know my body needed nourishment. Now I’m averaging 6-10 bites and I’m full for hours. Focusing on Protein has helped immensely.

Hey Cammy! How many oz are you eating in one sitting now? Today I ate 4oz of baked Beans and I'm still in a stall. Just wondering if I'm eating too much and since we're basically sleeve twins figured I'd ask you.

It is so important to get that Water in my friend. The food part will come and its so hard to want to eat more than two bites and not be able to. Its for sure a mind thing. Worry about hydration at this point food will come your body will tell you but the water is so important in any form broth, Popsicle anything with Fluid

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
