Weight loss journey


Elipse is the only gastric balloon that doesn't require surgery, endoscopy or anesthesia for its placement and removal. It is placed during a 20-minute outpatient visit.
The Elipse gastric balloon comes in a form of a small pill, that is swallowed with water, and placed in the stomach. Once it reaches the desired location in the stomach, it is then inflated. The inflated balloon will give you a feeling of being full sooner with reduced quantity of food. And thus, helps in reducing weight but reduced food intake.
Within a span of 4 months, the balloon automatically deflates, without the need for the endoscopic removal procedure. And it goes out of the body through natural excretion, Making this procedure non-invasive and safe.
Patients lose an average of 10 to 15kg during the 6-month program. One clinical study with 95 patients showed that 72% of average weight loss with Elipse can be sustained at 12 month follow up.

Not really. I am aware that it's there, it kind of feels like I've just been thirsty and drunk a bottle of water all at once. Does that make sense? It's not uncomfortable and it may just be in my head but I know it's there.
This is a very popular question and a super easy one to answer.
No procedure required - another reason I went with this option.
So the balloon stays for 3 to 4 months in your stomach. After that time there is a little circle patch on the balloon that simply opens, this action releases the water from inside the balloon into your stomach. You simply pee out that water. The balloon itself is made of a verrryyy thin material, so once the water is out, you simply poop it out!
Care should be taken that the person is not suffering from:
  • Any inflammatory disease of the gastro-intestinal tract.
  • Any gastro-intestinal bleeding or anomaly.
  • Hiatal Hernia or abnormality of larynx and esophagus.
  • Drug or Alcohol Addiction.
Before opting for the process, the person is required to undergo a medical diagnostic to determine:
  • Your medical history
  • Your weight loss goals
  • Attempted methods to lose weight
  • Comfort level with the procedure
Prior to the procedure, you will be administered medication to keep acidity in check. The medication will be started 2 weeks in advance. Prior to the date of surgery, you are required to be on a liquid or pureed diet for 12 hours.

Yes, you need to get a blood test done. Super easy!
Nope! It's been in 4 weeks now and I have no side effects or any discomfort. I was warned that some people can face acid reflux sometimes or burping.
With out a doubt!!! Depending on my weight at the end of the 3 to 4 months I may even see if I'm allowed to have another one fitted lol!
So with the Elipse program you have a dietitian who follows you, checks on you and helps you. They can only do so much though and the rest is on you. It's all about accountability and if you want results then sticking to the healthy food and calorie allowance is crucial. I've been trying to be good, yes I've had days where I've eaten something naughty and gone over my calorie allowance but I'm human and won't beat myself up. I know for a fact tomorrow I will be over as I fully intend to enjoy my birthday and eat cake.
The Doctor basically goes through your weight with you and what you want to achieve. Obviously it's for those of us who need a helping hand to loose weight. They say you can expect to loose between 5 and 15kg over the 3 to 4 months. I'm 4 weeks in and have lost 7.1kg!
To be honest I haven't been able to overeat! I feel full after just a small meal portion. I think if I was to force it in (that would be hard to do) then yes, I would probably vomit. But forcing the food in and overeating would just defeat the whole point.
The first week was liquids, then soft foods. About day 9 I got fed up and needed to actually chew something so I had soup and a slice of bread.
Absolutely!! I have always struggled with meal sizes and portions. I was / am also a bad comfort eater.
I think this depends on each person and if they follow the program. So I am on 1,400 kcal a day and I am trying to stick to that. I am also doing gentle exercise so the loss is gradual. I also don't want to loose too fast as this can cause hair loss etc.
