Stressed I won't lose the pre opt weight


11 posts in this topic

I need to lose 10 to 15 pounds by my next appointment in 2 1/2 week. The diet is to eat how I would if i was post opt. I'm really scared it won't work. It took me like 6 months to lose 20 on my own doing personal training before. Pretty frustrated too I just want to be approved and a date it's all I can think about.

Keep your net carbs under 20 a day and you'll drop ten pounds in two weeks easy. I've lost fifteen in two weeks. If you don't know already, net carbs are your carbohydrates minus the Fiber. Fiber has little to no effect on blood sugar so that's why they're not counted. You can do it!

I felt the same way at the beginning of my pre-op diet. I was never able to lose weight before on my own. I followed the liquid diet - minimum 50g Protein, Water, sugar free Jello, low sodium broth and with no exercise I was able to lose 11lbs in 15 days since the last time I had a weigh-in (March 15th to March 25th). I'm only on my 8th day of my 14 day pre-op liquid diet and even though the first 3 days are extremely hard, it does get better and seeing the progress on the scale was SOOOO motivational and worth all the hunger.

You can do it! Just really mentally prepare yourself for the change, it'll all be worth it for a new you.

Yes, my pre-op diet was a bit of a rollercoaster, I went from mourning all the things I wouldn't be able to eat for a while, to determined, but as it got closer I was able to pull it together in the end...just hang in there, you can do it!
