Wow that is a trip! Very cool that we are all having surgery the same day and have the same name. We can all get healthy together [emoji1377]. Have you started you’re pre-op diets?


Have a great day!

I've been on mine for a little over a week. My isn't really too terrible. 2-3 Protein Shakes and 2 small meals of lean Protein and veggies per day. Lots of Water. No added sugar or carbs. No caffeine. No carbonation. I start my 3 day Clear Liquids on Saturday though [emoji51]

Hang in there, it is really tough. Today was the first day for liquid diet pre-op (my procedure will be on 11/28/17 and I felt hypoglycemic...I’ve been taking Kefir, broth, coffee, two Protein Drinks and cucumbers. Good idea on popsiclesł! Thanks! Don’t despair, change is not easy to come by but you, we, all of us will get there. You can do this!

You guys are inspiring. My surgery is Monday, Nov 20th. The pre-op diet is so hard, which is why diets don't work, right? I'm just hoping that cravings subside post-surgery. While we can't physically eat, those urges are tough.

So my surgery (sleeve) is on nov 21st and liquid diet started on Monday. There hasn’t been a day that I went with out cheating it’s so hard when you still have to cook and prepare food for everyone in the house. I have 8 days to get it together! Boyfriend keeps coming home with take out like his tempting me on purpose


What others have said, you have to shrink your liver. If your liver is too swollen the surgeon could abort the procedure out of safety concerns. I am sure you do not want that. Stay focused, stay strong, keep motivated, focus on the goal. I had to remind myself that I had eaten enough pizza, fast food and China buffets to last a lifetime. Had to get it together before my surgery.

That sounds good. I am also supposed to stay away from carbonation now and after surgery. I’m not a big soda drinker so that wasn’t a problem but I would love to be able to have veggies. I made cabbage Soup hoping I could eat it during this phase but they said no. I’m glad you are doing so well, great job [emoji1360]


Have a great day!

Oh you need all the support you can get so definitely have a talk with him

im so dreading the pre-op liquid diet

pre-op diet length will depend on my BMI 2 weeks before surgery. I’m between 43-45 BMI at the moment

if its 45 or less then its a week of clear liquids only *horrified*

if its over 45 then its two weeks of clear liquids + one meal of lean Protein and veggies a day

I feel for everyone that has to do a liquid diet! Omg! I have pretty much been on my pre op diet since April, because I had alot to lose anyway and was on a 1500 Cal diet the whole time. Everyone stick to the plan, fight the urges because I know it is hard! You are almost at the finish line to get your surgery!

      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.
