Hi, Jan 12 is my date!



Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm Rachel from the Queensland Central Coast in Australia. My date is the 12th Jan. I'm onto day 6 of my preop diet. Xmas was hard!!!

I'm excited to be having my surgery, but a little nervous too.

Is it just me, or is everyone else beginning to notice how many ads for food are on TV or FB??!!

I'm really looking forward to getting to know you all and to begin this journey with you!

Good luck with everything. If I understand everybody, you will may be challenged for the next two weeks. Remember why you are doing what you are doing and stay strong. I am about 2 months behind you in my journey. And yes, the ads are horrible, but it is the way our society is structured. Good luck and keep us posted.

Hey :)

Lol, small (ish) world!!

My preop diet is 3 1/2 serves of Optifast. I do 3 shakes and 1/2 a bar. Then at least 1 cup of diet jelly. I'm allowed as many non starchy veges as I like, plus 1 cup of berries or melon.

What is yours?

Hey there.....I'm going to have mine on the 12th as well. We'll have to keep up with each other for encouragement. I'm starting my liquid diet tomorrow and I wasn't told I could eat anything other than liquid, so you're lucky in that fact. I'm told the first three days are the worse and then it gets easier so I'm looking forward to keeping myself busy on those first three days so that I don't have time to concentrate on how hungry I am or think that I am!!! LOL!

Best wishes!

Well, I'm settled in after surgery but full of gas! If that could subside I'd be into something. I've been trying to walk every hour for a few minutes. How did you make out?

      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.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
