I never cheated. I was scared they could tell and not do the surgery or my liver wouldn't shrink. But the weight loss during it... Fantastic. 20 pounds for me

I did the 2 week liquid diet as well and it was TORTURE!. Especially the first 3-4 days while I was getting the carbs out of my system. But the weight loss was great (11 lbs) and I was scared to fly all the way to Mexico and then have them tell me my liver wasn't good enough for surgery.

That was enough to keep me on track...........

My preop will start on Friday. What a day to start it! I will do 3 Protein Meal Replacement shakes a day along with 2 slices of whole wheat bread (yuk), 1/2 c fat free veggies, 1/2 fruit, sf Jello, sf popcicles. The only plus is....my liver will hopefully b healthy, I will start losing weight, and it will be 14 days closer to surgery date!

If you can make it 2 more days... You'll have smooth sailing. The first 3 is the hardest. You can do it. Just think if you give in now then it will be easier later

MsPerry I'm in the same boat as you. I am just about to lose my mind. This is day 3 for me and i feel like i won't make it. But i'm gonna try to hold on. I am reading people's comments about getting past the 3-4 days so if I can get past tomorrow, maybe I can make it. But the way I feel right now...ugh! It's soooo hard!

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
