I meet with my surgeon on 3/27 and I think he is going to give me a surgery date then. So I might be an April Sleever!

Thank you for the advice about Protein supplements. I’m still struggling to find something I like and my pre-op diet starts in about a week. 😬. I absolutely hate drinking Water so consuming 64 oz. is a bit of a challenge. Are we allowed to add anything to water such as a lemon or crystal light? I previously lived on diet Snapple so I am not sure what to do. I am very new to all of this and have not had my appointment with the nutritionist yet but know I need to be drinking water everyday from the info the surgeons office gave me.

Yes. I add it to my water. I also am drinking caffeine free tea iced. I get bored of water too. I’m on day for of my 2 week liquid diet. I’m using Premier Protein. It’s ready made and tastes pretty good.

I will be an April sleever, April 4th for me. Already on my pre-op liquid diet, but struggling to find a Protein Drink. I think it may be allergy to something in them. I’ve ordered Unjury and a few others, so I’m sure I’ll find something that works. Glad to see so many others on the same journey at the same time on here.

I think right now I'm still trying to digest the fact that this may actually really happen after all. My surgeon told me that my bmi is 50 which makes me high risk. I'm kinda tripping on that. It makes me wonder if I can ever get to a nice looking body instead of just healthy. Sounds selfish I'm sure but my head is spinning probably

My BMI is 66 and had been as high as 69. I know my body is going to be a mess.

I'm scheduled for 4/12... pre op diet starts this Wednesday for me.. I've stocked up on 6 cases of Premier Protein (choc., van., Cookies & cream). I also got 2 cases of clear premier Protein waters. I got vanilla whey Protein Powder, a unflavored protein powder & PB2. A ton of chicken broth & sugar free jellos & puddings. As for Vitamins I got chewable Multivitamins, chewable Calcium & chewable Iron which my nutritionist said I had to get, I also picked up chewable Biotin in case of Hair loss. I also have a NutriBullet, I hate most veggies & fruits but I find if I pulverized them I can drink them. I'm actually starting to get a bit nervous now it's fast approaching! Good luck to you, good luck to all of us!!!

2 weeks, and I'll be honest, I've sucked at it. My hardest time is at night. Tomorrow is mine and my hubby's anniversary. I told him after dinner, no more cheating. I do so good sticking to it until then.

My liquid diet starts tomorrow for surgery on 4/4! I woke up yesterday with swollen gums and they are pretty painful in a specific area. Does anyone know if I can see a dentist and get a cleaning a week before surgery? Would this affect me at all? I definitely don’t want my surgery day to get pushed back because of something like this and I’m hoping it gets better on it’s own but what if it doesn’t?

      Losing 1.2kg/2.6lbs in a week seems to be a bit disappointing when in reality it is quite reasonable at about 5kg/11lbs per month. I think that I cant quite remember the last 30kg/65lbs. Oh the mind games we play!

      Yup, I did it! I RAN my SECOND continuous 5K ever this morning! There is an option to do a 10K Sunday morning and I'm going to give it a try. It's basically the 5K twice. Even though this is a girls' trip, I kinda wish Mr. was here so he could witness my awesomeness.
      @FluffyChix, no it wasn't on the beach nor was I wearing a bikini, but I think I should get bonus points anyway, just for doing it a second time 😎

        Congratulations! You have every right to feel proud!

        That's amazing, it must feel great!

        OMG! You are so inspiring! How did you get started with your training? Running/jogging a 5k is one of my goals as well. Your journey is truly wonderful.

      just got back from my 2 year check up and wanted to post.  The kcal drop has me worried and thinking i need to up the weights and trim back the cardio. Never saw myself as a person who cared for bulky muscles but the increased calorie burn from more muscle mass certainly wont hurt. 
      New goal for the next year i guess.
