Losing Pre-Op



I have 38 days to go. This pre-op stuff is nail-biting. Worse than a seat-clencher film. I am SO over waiting. I will have to find something to keep my mind off it or I'll end up a gibbering idiot. Ack!


On the plus side- or should I say MINUS side, I have been gradually cutting down unhealthy carbs for the last 3 weeks, and for the last two days I've low-carbing with a vengeance. In 3 weeks I have lost 4 kg which is nearly 9 lb, so I'm pleased with that! My doctor hasn't asked me to go on a pre-op diet as such , he just asked that I up my protein- but I figured I'd do my best to lose some Kg's preop and shrink my liver too. AND I'm upping my protein :D .

I did the same thing. I started a low carb diet 2 weeks before the liquid diet. Now mind you, I had a few cheats in there, but I lost 5 lbs. Since my liquid diet (that I have not cheated at all on) I started May 14th I have lost another 13! So total of 18 in less than a month. I get sleeved this coming Tuesday. So ready! I am over the waiting too. I just want to be done!
