    I’m at 2.5 weeks in and just added soft foods. Turkey burger. Cottage cheese. Had a scrambled egg this morning.
    Gotta say, hunger remains at bay. I agree some must be psychological. I’m down 16lbs from this start of this journey so I am thrilled.
    Thought I would really miss carbonated drinks but this is helping me kick my Diet Coke habit
    Hardest thing for me is not drinking anything at a meal and getting enough calories in.

    AmyAlexis got a reaction from Tex Slim 66 in Procedure scheduled for Nov 8   
    Hi everyone,
    I have my procedure scheduled for November 8 - one week away. I'm nervous and excited and hopeful after reading so many of these postings from people who have had ESG.
    I'm wondering how people are dealing with emotional eating- I know stress can be a trigger for me.

    Great suggestions James thank you!
    I am a coffee lover and diet coke drinker so your tip is appreciated - and this will give my husband, who suggested the same thing - great 'I told ya so' satisfaction -

    Hi Hope4momof4!
    The procedure went off without a hitch. I was heading home after a few hours in recovery. No nausea (Doc prescribed anti-nausea patch which I put on the night before). The first couple of days I was a little gassy/crampy, but it really was minor and another 'scrip helped with that.
    Returned Monday for blood work and xray to make sure there were no leaks- which there aren't.
    I'm now one week out to the day and I am feeling great and I've dropped about 10lbs so far. yay!
    I'm so happy I did this. So far so good!

    Hi Hope4mom
    Dr shariah might have mentioned long term results but I don’t remember to be honest. It’s so new that I’m not sure you’re going to get much data.
    As for my weight, I’m 5’1 so that gives you a bit more context. BMI 30. I’ve been overweight all my life. as high as over 200 about 17 years ago and last few years been in the mid 150s down to high 120s and back again. Was sooo tired of this neverending battle, and never feeling satisfied or full unless stuffed. And that lead me to this non surgical procedure I had seen on nightly news.

    Hi Bubbles. I just had the procedure done with dr shariah two weeks ago. I can tell you how happy I am to have done it. I love dr shariah and the staff, nurses and other doctors at Weill Cornell are fantastic.
    If you want, I’d be happy to talk to you on the phone about my experience. Just send me a private message.
    Btw I started at 159 and have already lost 14lbs.

    Quick update on the morning after ESG procedure. Feeling much better, walking around and getting some energy back from a tiring day yesterday. I'm drinking 1 ounce of clear liquid every ±15minutes and that is going well. Definitely able to stay hydrated doing this. I think I might have been drinking liquids too fast yesterday afternoon and this may have lead to some of the minor gas pains. If I get a gas pain I simply get up and walk around and within a few minutes they are gone. Headache is also gone!
    Drinking (sipping) slowly is a big deal to avoiding discomfort.
    Day 1 is great start for me, I have clear liquids for today and tomorrow then shift to Protein drinks.
    Happy Thanksgiving to all, mine will be a clear liquid day, for which I am giving thanks!
    Take care, Tex!

    I think it's a good thinkgto be on the liquid diet. I was sleeved 2 days before you and don't think my gut would handle digesting anything but. I think our poor stomachs just need to heal. Even though I WANT to eat so bad! People told me that my taste would change....and yup it has. I normally, in a course of former tummy, drank 80-100 ozs of Water a day. Now my new stomach doesn't even LIKE plain water. I get cramps. But I can have Vitamin water. Go figure. I just dilute it half and half. This is what I'm doing to get around not being able to tolerate stuff in order to get in protein and liquids. For my meals, I sometimes have hot tea with unflavored protein. I bought genpro from Amazon. Not cheap but gives 30 grams per scoop. I mix it with a little bit of water to thin paste consistancy then I add it to my hot tea. I will also do this with Bone Broth. Just make sure you mix it FIRST. I have Unjury unflavored but have not tried it yet. MOST people rave about the Unjury chicken Soup flavored one. When I feel I need to "eat" vs drink, I will mix 1/4 cup 0 or 2% plain fage yogurt with a scoop of Inspire peanutbutter cup. I will add a tablespoon or so to thin it a bit. That gives me at least 26 grams protein. Hope some of these ideas help you.
