You know you're on the Pre-op diet when...



Recommended Posts

I'm actually starting to think those 300cal microwave meals are kinda filling. (Im not on liquid only).

And I did lick the salt off a cracker last night.

I was drinking just Water for the first 3 days and then I realized that we had crystal light. Crystal light is the most delicious tasting drink after 3 days of plain water. I am day 7 of my diet and I am not super hungry anymore. It feels weird to say that knowing 1000 calories a day is not many for the average person.

My Dr said I am not required to do a pre-op diet but I plan on doing it for the 2 or 3 days prior to surgery just to clean myself out. So much for taking advantage of the all inclusive resort! LOL

I'm sure I will be ready to lick a cow after just a couple of days!!!

Omg...this made laugh. I had dreams of chewing food last night. I am not hungry, just wanting something to munch on. Was at the grocery store the other day helping my Mom and walked by hotdogs and instantly wanted one. I hate hotdogs, haven't had one in years. But there I was, staring at the hotdogs drooling. Smh.

My dr wants me to do 2 Protein replacement meal with one solid meal of protein and veggies for two weeks. 2nd day and starving. Does it get any easier? I also hope I don't have this starving feeling after my surgery on the 4th of Nov.

Haha... I felt like that about my GasX tablet... Kinds looked forward to it. I had 10 days of Clear Liquids, which was tough. It's hard but just hang in there! Now I am completely relieved one week out because I can have yogurt, Protein Shakes, and creamy Soup. I let the soup cool down a bit and add unflavored Syntrax Protein Powder. Doesn't change the taste at at!.

Yeah, lets try to avoid the grocery store during the pre op diet. That's all bad.

Yes it does get easier, I'm on day 5, feeling great. Not hungry. Nerves are a little fried but other than that dieters beeotchiness I'm fine. I am definetley avoiding looking at the food signs today. It's the Devil testing me! Lol

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
