Got my finalized 2 week pre op diet



Recommended Posts

I don't think it's going to be so bad at all. I have to have 3 shakes, and 2 Protein bars...plus I can have unlimited no carb veggies, 3oz of protein, and one small fruit each day. I start it on Friday. I can't believe in just a couple of weeks I'll officially be banded! I'm so excited, and beyond ready!

Woo hoo!!!! Congrats!!! My daughters birthday is February 10th, and we're having her party that day as well. It'll be tough to avoid all the yummy food, cake, and ice cream. Not to mention no one really knows I'm having the surgery, so I may have to walk around with a plate of food pretending to eat! haha I'll stay strong though, it'll be soo worth it :)

Good luck to you!! Hope you get to join us in February ;) Keep us updated!

Hey guys! My surgery date is Feb 8th! I'm so excited! I wonder why I don't have to do the "pre-op liquid diet"?? I can't wait to start! Anyone a bit scarred??

Congrats! We're getting sooo close! Do you have to do any kind of 2 week diet, or do you get to avoid it all together?

I'm on day two of my pre op diet. So far so good. I'm hungry at times, but it hasn't been too bad.

I'm a bit scared, but more afraid of the surgery itself than anything. I just want that part over with.

I don't officially start my pre-op diet until the 28th, but I've been slowly starting it. The Breakfast won't be hard at all for me. Right now I seldom eat Breakfast. With my diet, I get one Protein, one fruit, and one dairy for breakfast. Of course the dairy choices are low cal. For example, I can have a Protein shake, 1/2 cup of unsweetened applesauce, and 1 low fat string cheese stick. I tried that yesterday and it was difficult for me to eat that much. Like I said, I haven't been a breakfast person. My lunches and suppers will be difficult though. A Protein and 2 cups of veggies. I have never eaten 2 full cups of veggies ever at one sitting. The no Snacks in between will be difficult too. But all in all, I feel like it won't be too bad. Until the headaches set in. Yuck.

My surgery date is February 11th. Thought it was the 12th at first, but now it is the 11th. I'll be watching for posts from you ladies that are a little ahead of me. Good luck to all of you. And yeah, I'm scared too. Not for surgical pain, but for the huge lifestyle changes we are all about to make.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
