My surgery is Oct 4th. I am starting a pr-pre op diet. I am replacing my usual Breakfast mcmuffin and hashbrown with a Protein Shake and cutting down on carbs. My pre op diet will be 3 weeks 2 Protein Shakes, one meal of 4-6oz lean Protein, a cup of green veggies and a cup of free with all the calorie free drinks, sugar free popsicles and sugar free Jello I want. Starting later I hope maybe I can learn more from what you all learn in your journey's.

Good on you for making an early start! Your pre-op diet is the same as mine except I have an extra shake in place of the protein serve.

I start my pre-op diet next Thursday and will be on it for 2 weeks. It will consist of 2 Protein Shakes for breakfast and lunch and a Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice for dinner. It has to stay between 800-900 calories per day. I was told this would be the hardest part of the whole process. I hope those two weeks go by FAST!!

Hello.. Brand new to the site... I will be having my surgery on August 2nd. My pre-op is today and my two week diet starts tomorrow. I'm extremely nervous and have had a few of my friends give me their opinion on it.. ugh.. If its not nice don't say anything at all.. but I know why i'm doing this.. :) Hopefully we will have support here.

Erica - my surgery is the 5th but I chose to start pre-op diet today rather than Monday... My reasoning behind this (I'm sure I sound crazy) is because I'm going on vacation just 3 days after starting pre-op diet and I hear that's the hardest time to stick to it- I feel like starting today will get me a head start and maybe I'll be more into it when my vacation starts (making it easier to stick to) lol ... So here we go!!! I'm taking pictures today full body all around pics and starting my video diary tonight! I was getting so nervous but now I'm getting psyched! I'm hoping to lose a good 10lbs pre-op!!!

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
