    Surgery soon

    You will be fine - drink drink drink that is what I did. Try to keep busy doing something so you don’t think about food.

    Great work! Turkey day seemed to coincide with starting real fat loss for me so I lost 6 pounds over the long weekend.

    No leak test done?

    Give yourself time to heal and wait until you are eating dense protein. You will feel restriction. If food were mushing out into your abdomen, you would definitely know it. Yourlungs get weak during surgery due to the anesthesia. If you use that handy dandy spirometer that they gave you for lung exercises, you should bounce back pretty quickly

    I was on Clear liquids with only 2 Protein shakes per day for 7 days pre-op. The good news is that I lost 17 pounds during that one week. The bad news is that I was very difficult to live with and I was on the verge of a nervous breakdown by surgery day. I started the infamous "Is Sucking on a chicken Nugget Cheating?" thread. Boy, did that stir things up on the boards... I had a fill on Wednesday and the doctor said, "Protein Shakes for a week, can you do it?" I will do it but I won't like it one bit. I have suffered to protect this band - like many people on these boards but the rewards have been great. I've gone from a size 22 to a 14. I feel good about me and people are giving me compliments. You can do it. You are not weak for thinking about (or even actually) cheating. You are human. We are works in progress - BE KIND TO YOURSELF!!! Good luck on your journey. :biggrin1:
