I'm feeling really nervous at this moment. doubt and fears have kicked into over drive. I've had such a horrible relationship with food over the years and I've learned so much this far on my journey to a healthier me but can I get through 2 weeks of liquid diet.

You can do this!!! In my experience, the pre-op diet (specifically the first 3 days) was way more difficult than post op has been. Try to stay busy and drink, drink, drink!! It will be over before you know it and you'll be so happy that you stuck it out! Best of luck to you!!

Here's what I can tell you. Does the 2 week liquid diet stink, yep especially the first 3 days. You'll get a headache and feel overall sluggish and tired., but you'll get past that. I don't know what your restrictions are, but I was allowed to add fresh fruits, Peanut Butter, yogurt and other things to my shakes to help with the flavor and to stave off boredom. Don't be afraid to do this, the variety is what got me thru it. My surgeon prefers Bariatric Advantage, so I used that one. I wouldn't suggest buying too much of any specific type of shake yet, afterwards your tastes are different so what works now may not work later. I got lots of samples and I'm trying them now, post-op. Some are good, some not so good. Everyone raves about the powders?utm_source=BariatricPal&utm_medium=Affiliate&utm_campaign=CommentLink" target="_ad" data-id="1" >unjury chicken Soup - It was by far the worst thing I've ever tasted, but that's me. You can do this though. Before you know it your day will be here and you'll then be sitting on the losers bench. Best of luck.

I have always been a big eater. Male and 303 pounds took alot of food. You can do it. Go into surgery ready and confident. I did so well on my pre op diet that they only used 4 cuts instead of 5 as my liver was shrunk from the diet. It is hard but you can do it. Get your body ready now because after surgery you will not have a choice. Keep busy and positive..

I am on day 8 of my liquid diet. It really hasn't been as awful as I thought it would be. When you are hungry drink! Drink lots of Water! Drink anything CLEAR! Really, stay busy! Clean, work out, anything that keeps your mind busy, DO IT! When you start getting hungry remind yourself why you're doing it to begin with. I figure if I can't do 2 weeks pre op of all liquid diet then maybe I'm not ready, but I AM READY! Ready to be healthy and off all of the meds I've been having to take for YEARS! I'll take Vitamins over drugs any day! Plus I want to know how it feels to be smaller and I want to know what I look like underneath all of this fat. I really, truly believe that in the end it's all going to be worth it, as I've heard so many people say. Also, I remind myself that one day I will be able to eat actual food again and it will be my responsibility to eat healthy and to exercise so I won't end up right back where I am now. I never want to go back! I want to keep pressing forward! You CAN do this and you and I will be so proud of ourselves after we've done it. Another goal down! We got this girl! Good luck with everything! :D

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!
