Day 7/21 - not too bad. I am getting bored with the Protein Drinks 2x but pushing through. The lean meal and veggies are a sanity saver! I can also have 2-3 Snacks. I’ve been consuming 700-900 calories a day. 2 more weeks and then the real fun starts!

I'm on day 8 and today was the first day I felt great. Every other day was a struggle and I felt horrible. My surgery is a week from today, so I'm trying to keep my eyes on the prize. Good luck and stay strong!!

Day 2 of 14. Long meeting away from the office. It started with donuts and ended with pizza. Seriously, why??? I held firm, tho -- skipped the donuts, had salad for lunch, then inhaled a Protein Shake and a banana when I finally got back at 3PM. Got my eyes on the prize! Slight headache.

How come? Not sure...maybe it just doesn't seem real to me. I have eaten the correct Water amount and Protein Shakes and meals. I have eaten junk though probably every 2-3 days.

I guess because I know a few people who all cheated before and have been really successful since they had it and they told me they cheated.

I hear you. I’ve been sticking to it for the most part; although I have a friend who only was required to do the diet for 3 days prior (and was fine) and another who freaked out and ate a cheeseburger the night before (also totally fine.)

It’s not good advice but it does help alleviate major fears.

Yeah I know. I just hate seeing everyone act all offended on here if someone cheats and it has my anxiety kicking in that I didn't have until I came on here and started reading posts.

Some here that have gone through the surgery and posted on my post I created got all judgmental. We ALL have food issues or we wouldn't be having the surgery and if they followed the pre-op diet then they wouldn't need the surgery... To judge some who struggles kinda annoys me since they have been there and eaten way to much to get to the point they needed surgery.

Anyway, I didn't quit smoking as soon as I should have, BUT I did quit almost 2 weeks ago and I cheated on pre op. I pray everything goes well for me and when it is over I believe all I will need is the ability to not eat to get me over my cravings. My friend who had it says she didn't want to eat...I believe that is the boost everyone who has the surgery needs.

This pre op diet is a challenge. I mean. I haven't had any carbs intentionally in 9 days, but I haven't followed it exactly. I have eaten more Protein and veggies than I'm supposed to but I've also been sick for almost all of it and it's been miserable. I want all the carbs. In 9 days I've lost 8 pounds. I can relate when you say it doesn't seem real. Like I have been having so much trouble believing this is actually going to happen. So while I'm disappointed that I haven't been super strictly following 100 percent, I'm trying to remember I have cut out all refined carbs, sugars and caffeine. That's a lot!

Some people are able to stick to it [emoji817] and that's great for them. But we're human, and we're going to have moments of weakness. Don't beat yourself up over it. I know exactly what you mean when you say it doesn't seem real. I've been heavy for so long that I can't see myself any other way, but at the same time, I don't feel like a fat girl. Does that make sense?

I've cheated. My first week, I ate smoked chicken wings and a grilled chicken breast. My husband ate a ham and cheese sandwich his first week too. Trust me, cheating is happening!! Hubby and I have stuck to it [emoji817] this second week but trust me, it's been HARD!!

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
