  1. Hello everyone. Well today is Day 2 of my Pre Op diet. I feel horrible. I keep thinking of food or like fries and hamburger etc... Why does this happen? You know I noticied that it is not that I am hungry because I don't really feel hungry, it is more mentally. My heart tells me I want to lose the weight, I want to keep going and follow the diet to the T and not mess up. These past two days I have done it and followed the diet all the way and excercised about 45 min a day. I really want to do this the right way but it seems like everywhere I turn I see food or I hear someone talking about it and my mind skips a little lol.... You know I went to Wal-Mart last night and as I was walking around I kept seeing these beautiful skinny women and in my mind I was telling them stuff lol..... I was being mean and I am never like that, this is not me!!! I am sorry to go on and on but honestly I have no one to tell so I decided to come on here and vent. HOWWWWW did you all get through the 2 week diet? Mine does not even sound as hard as others I have heard but boy is it tempting to give up and just eat. But of course I won't because 2 days have already come and gone and I did so good, did not cheat or anything. My 2 week diet consists of this: 1 early Am protein shake 20grams protein 1 Mid Morning Protein shake 20 grams protein Lunch=fat free 6 oz yogurt and a medium fruit snack either a cup of cottage cheese fat free/or 1 oz of nuts like almonds/pecans no flavor or 2 string cheese fat free Dinner 4 oz of lean meat chicken, tuna, fish and 1/2 cup of corn, potatoes and 1 cup of vegtables Does not sound hard but boy it sure is lol.... I know I want this bad and I now I will get through it just really wanted to vent. Oh also did any of you weigh yourself constantly???? I keep wanting to weigh myself every morning, is this good or bad? Anyway thanks for reading.

    My surgery is on Feb 16th!!!!!!!!!

    Hi... I am set for FEB 14th. I got a PreSurgery 2 week diet. I Have to take 2 protein shakes and have a small lunch like tuna or something and a small snack like cottage cheese and then for dinner light stuff like 4oz chicken breast with some veggies and one starch. IT sounds pretty easy and they said people loose 20 or so pounds during the 2 wks. I am going to follow it to the T. I start on the 1st.....Best of luck to you.

    The Eve of the BAND or 1 LAP TO GO!!

    Best of luck may all go great....
  5. Hello everyone, wanted to post that I am going to be starting my 2 week diet on the 1st and I am super excited. I went to some local stores to look at shakes. My Md office recomended shakes that have over 20protein and I am to take 2 a day. What shakes were the best that you all used? Anyway my set date is the 14th of Feb and I can't wait. I will be joining ZUMBA classes next week so I am sure that will help lose some weight. I am a little upset at all the negative people that tell me it cant be done or that I have too much weight too lose and this will not work. I don't want to hear that but some people in my life keep telling me this and trying to persuade me not to get the surgery. I believe this is my choice and they should accept it. Sorry I am a little upset. Well wish me luck in my 2 week diet. Oh, by they way I lost 4 pds and don't even know how or from where lol... Best of luck to those also getting the band in Feb.
