I am struggling right now with everything not sure how I should finish my two last weeks

I did 4 weeks on full liquid - no cheat until dec 18

then I got delayed to jan 22nd with instructions of no fat no sugar as much as possible. Just about everything got fat / sugar so yea, lovely. I don't know if i should try to go liquid even if the nurses just said i can eat normally

My daily meals looks like this: 1x Premier Protein, 1x Protein Bar, 1x egg + Tomato + chicken stock, cauliflower + 1 low fat sausage + chicken stock, 1x greek yogurt , 1x fat free pudding + Protein (1/2 cup)

I make sure I have plenty of Protein every day in my 3 last week I didn't regain any weight I lost but didn't lose anymore

Hi Keira Fae,

The liquid diet is tough but try to stick with it as best you can, you can do it it’s only two weeks, think about how great your going to feel as the weight starts to come off! The future will be full of new adventures, excitement and energy..

that's the thing I am not on a liquid diet I was from nov 20 to dec 17, now my only instructions are to eat normally but avoid fat/sugar. But I don't know if I should try to go to a liquid one or not. The nurses said as I did 4 weeks on liquid already apparently my liver should be fine.

SHOULD be, but drop an email to your nutritionist to be sure. As we have seen....all practices vary.

Oh wow! Is this the standard for everyone!?! Anyone???

I had to watch a seminar put out by my surgeon before I could schedule a consult. I had my consult, met with the nutritionist, saw my PCP, had a psych consult, then my coordinator submitted my case for approval. It took 3 weeks (which is uncommon) for them to approve. I scheduled my surgery date the day my coordinator called to tell me I was approved. I attended a required 2 hour group course with the nutritionist. I have my pre-op appt on Thursday and surgery Monday.

* my insurance required proof of non-surgical attempted a weight loss for six consecutive months occurring in the last two years. I already had that but the meeting with the nutritionist, my PCP and the two hour class would've counted toward the six months. They just need to be spaced properly.

Hope this helps! It seems pretty standard. Some insurances/patients/practices require more extensive pre-testing.

Surgery was Monday the 8th. Getting discharged today. I'm excited about the future. I still have concerns about getting in the requirements and what\when to tell those who start to ask, but I'm sure it will be all worth it. I'm 54 years old and weight has been a life long battle. I knew that this had to be done so that I could enjoy the rest of my life without so many meds and complications from excess weight.

Congratulations! As for what to say to people, I'm telling them that I will have a hiatial hernia operation (which is true just not the whole truth) and that the doctor is putting me on a very strict diet afterwards (true) and then once I start eating again, I'll tell them I was so happy to have lost weight that I'm continuing to be careful (true)! My operation is next Tuesday 16/1.

January 11, am having doubts

Don’t have doubts. I’ve been there & done that. I backed out of surgery on May 30th 2017. I was in the hospital with the iv in & didn’t go through with it & now I regret that decision. A friend had surgery that same day & has lost well over 100 pounds already. I’m now rescheduled for January 18th. You got this! I’m asking for the Adivan as soon as I can get it when I arrive at the hospital to calm my nerves. Good Luck!
