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!!

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
