Recommended Posts

That's how I feel... Eventually I'll be eating my fav foods again but with pre and post op diets in place for over 6 weeks combined- I'm trying to enjoy everything 1 last time for a while lol hoping to not care about those foods after banding... Would rather my focus be on life and exercise!!!

I'm hoping I won't care about them too, and that they'll be a part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.. that I'll have them sometimes rather than everyday! Seeing some weight come off in the last week has spurred me on to do this!!! We can do it :)

My date is set for August 12th and I start my 4 week pre-op today! I'm excited yet nervous that I might cheat cause my boy friend is a bit of a diet sabotager. But with this site I'm sure I'll have enough support to stay on track!

This date will be 1 year since my lapband surgery. Closing in on 100 pounds in 1 year with the band.

Best wishes and Keep the faith.

Sounds like you're a week behind me.. I start week 2 of pre-op today and get banded on the 5th. The first few days are the hardest, and I admit I fell off the wagon on day 4. But after that, I have coped really well. Lost 13 in the first week (starting weight 399) and am much more motivated this week. I'm here if you need me :)

Wow, it looks like we have a support group going here. I have had trouble signing in, so I wasn't able to post. I haven't started my post-op diet yet, I'll start on the 30th. I am weaning myself off of carbonated sodas. I drank ALOT of soda in a day but am now down to one or two, just trying to finish up the ones I have in the 'fridge. I picked up a couple of cases of non-carbonated drinks at costco this weekend. My no-caffine headache didn't last as long as I thought it would. I am ready for this surgery. I am 59 and my starting weight is around 230 lbs.

It's interesting that people that love us want to keep us overweight. I think they are threatened by our success. The bottom line is that you are doing this for you and hopefully as he sees your transformation he will help rather than hinder. Hang in there and let us know when you need help! I know I will be.

Have been doing that too. It is like saying goodbye to an old, faithful friend, unhealthy food. I am hoping that I will not want to eat them when I feel good and have energy.

What does your preop diet consist of? Some people are on Protein Shakes some on fluids.

Caffeine headaches ouch! Several articles I read say that diet soda causes weight gain and cravings. Hard because for a long time that's all I drank (not good). Who knew that diet pop was worse than regular? Ironic.

I drank lots if soda too! In fact it was all I drank. My surgeon said it would be ok for me to drink diet soda while on pre-op so I've switched to sugar free diet soda. I didn't like the taste for the first few days but have gotten used to it now! :)

Luckily I didn't drink caffeinated soda, but it wasn't diet so it was FULL of sugar. My headaches for the first four days were from carb and sugar withdrawal. I had no energy as well but it all seemed to turn around on day 5! I have also heard that diet soda is bad for you. But because my surgeon said I can have it, I'm having it lol :)

Thanks. I am interested to see the variation in preop diets. Some are on full liquids and some don't have a preop diet.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.
