Wondering if any esg patients can tell me what restriction should feel like when starting purée diet? I had a weetbix and milk and later a scrambled egg today be really didn't feel restricted or "full" at any time? Is this normal? I have been compliant with fluids only for 2.5 weeks with no vomiting so assume I have not stretched anything. Any advice would be greatly appreciated 😬

I'm still pre op, but its good to know that we all feel differently. Perhaps you've healed very quickly?

@Melesg

liquids, go smoothly down the hatch. they will not give

you any restriction - doc never put me on puree' - (my request)

not sure about puree/and restriction:wacko:

when you start gradually eating solids - you should/will

feel that restriction we love

congrats on your early success

continued good luck

I feel restriction only on heavy Proteins like chicken, tuna fish, but only if I go over 4-5 oz. In my case, I don't feel it immediately, it takes more than half an hour to feel it, therefore I have to be careful. Certain fruits like pineapple also weights on my stomach. I wouldn't describe it as painful, but more like pressure.

I am the same way!!! I really need to quit before I ever feel any restriction. If I don't I am so miserable!!! It is like if I take 1 bite to much I am doomed. LOL

Have you found the restriction enough to lose a sufficient amount of weight?

@Melesg

you are asking me a question that happened almost 6 years ago!!??? LOL

i'm lucky to remember something that happened almost 6 minutes ago:lol:

i was eating solids at around 5-6 weeks PO. it's a great idea keeping a log/record

book. daily basis, write things down related to your WLS. ie problems, successes -

and in betweens. very helpful. Then, 6 years from now when a cutie petuti newbie

asks you a question, just go back to your log. Or of course, just ask me LOL

keep up the good job

good luck bud

Wow, six years ago! Has the esg been successful long term for you?

What I notice is that the "restriction" is delayed more for me in the puréed phase. I noticed that if I don't take enough time between bites and eat slow, I can get uncomfortable 20-30 minutes later. Happened to me twice and I finally figured out what was going on. I'm about 5 days into the puréed stage.

Thanks JimL. We are at about the same stage post procedure by the sounds of things.

@Melesg

short answer - YES

reached my GOAL (105 lbs down).

couple years PO, still had some

restriction but not as much as when

i was initially sleeved. for me (and

some others too) restriction gets

less and less through the years:(

in my case, (almost 6 years) it's more

of a mental thing. i continue to try and follow

all the rules i learned as a newbie.

to me, Water rules are the most important.

protein, carbs, moderation, being

aware of your portions.

You work with your sleeve (or whichever

WLS you had) - and it will work with/

for you. BUT - YOU are in charge.

good luck bud

Not at all Kathy - sleeve patients seem to have the most similar experience to esg pts from what I see so the advice is very welcome [emoji6]

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
