    Pre Op Optifast/ Liquid Diet Diet

    Day 6 of optifast/liquid diet. Its difficult but not quite as bad as the last few days each day is less hard for me. Im weak alot and tired too. Im wondering if im the only person stressing so much in the begining as i am....Im excited however that i get my surgery next week!!!!! Its been a long road but its going to be all worth it in the end. Todays Stressor is PIZZA..lol its a craving and I dont really like it that much.. i know in time all cravings in that sort will pass...

    Pre Op Optifast/ Liquid Diet Diet

    optifast is like a full calorie shake you drink 5 a day and i can have suger free popsicles and sugerfree jello, non calorie drinks. my diet is roughly 900 calories a day... my doctor proscribes it to reduce the size of the liver pre surgery and to drop weight to reduce complications. Im having issues with being a mom and having to cook....i havent cheated!!! im super proud of my self. advice for you is not to watch tv too much because tv commercials are VERY VERY tempting especially in the first 4-5 days.. remove all temptation from the house. MOST important "tell yourself every day im strong and i can do this"
  9. good luck hun ur surgery is the same date as mine and im on day 6 of liquid diet!! we will do great
