Hi, I am 9 days post ESG and I am feeling great. I am on the full liquids phase for next 7 days and I am dreaming of real food soon. I am also dreaming of how my eating life will look once I have reached my goal.

Has anyone gotten this far?

In the past, I have tried to eat in line with the Mediterranean diet, but (obviously) I have been derailed more than I can count.

There are a lot of veterans here several years post-goal who are still maintaining and doing great. I hope to be one of them in the future.

Hi @Rappahannock

9 days out - woo hoo!! Congratulations and welcome to the losers bench!

I am 18 months out (bypass, but the journey is pretty similar). You have a good eating plan? I didn’t as my surgeon just said ‘three meals a day, don’t snack EVER AGAIN’. But I got some off this site somehow and they sure helped.

Even now, I eat off a small plate. I keep my portion size small - if I don’t it hurts. I imagine stretching my wee pouch and I certainly don’t want that.

The Mediterranean diet - pretty closely describes my eating habits nowadays. But instead of being like a jail sentence as it was when it was ‘a diet’ now it is because that is the food I love! I have a beef burger (well, 1/4 of one) every now and then and mostly think ‘did I really used to love this sort of heavy, dense stuff?’. I love it that we chan change!

Best of luck on your journey! Just one idea - in your signature, maybe add your weight, or your BMI? People can help you better when the inevitable questions arise, if they get a slightly fuller sense of your path...

Thank you, Biddy and GradyCat.

It is good to hear from people who are being successful I am trying to eat healthy even in my full liquids phase. I have made pureed Soups with veggies with added Protein Powder. I have felt little restriction over the past few days, giving me one more thing to worry about. I do not feel stomach hungry though. When I am around people and food, I find myself eyeing the dips and spreads that I could be putting in my mouth, LOL
