This is the 5th day of my 2-week liquid diet. It's not too bad unless I walk too much. I went to Disneyland with my daughter on Saturday and brought my Protein Shakes and Water. I almost fainted and had to get out of line. I drank another Protein Shake but was still feeling dizzy. We checked our app and realized we did 15,000 steps. I went and had a garden salad with no dressing and felt much better. I realized my energy level is low and I have to limit my exercise during this liquid phase.

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.

I am using premiere Protein drinks. I've tried chocolate and vanilla and they are both pretty good. The vanilla tastes like melted ice cream. I drinking Water, Decaf tea and also using crystal light to change up the flavor of water. I also have chicken Bone Broth. The bone broth has more protein than regular broth.

I have always enjoyed broth. It can be warmed and reminds me of Soup. I think it tricks my mind. Popsicle if you're needing something to chew. (sugar-free of course). The Protein Drink I have is GNC NitroTech whey gold. I have 2 flavors, mocha Cappuccino and chocolate banana split. It has 76 servings in one container and 3 a day will last me about 25 days for $60. I tried the berry cheesecake and it had a horrible after taste. That's just my opinion though.

The strawberries and cream is good too. Tastes like the strawberry milk I loved as a kid. :)

I got my approval letter from insurance on Friday and it says Date of Admission: 4/10/2018.... so does that mean I have surgery that day?? I haven't heard anything from the doctor yet. I'm super excited to have my surgery, but I thought I'd have a little more lead time lol. I finished my classes and pre-insurance submission stuff on March 7th and I thought I'd have a minute longer before I went in! I'm supposed to be at a conference for work that week :53_cold_sweat:

My date is 4/10 also. Good luck!

I haven’t had that issue. Make sure you get plenty of fluids. I’m on day 5 and had a bad case of constipation. Luckily that’s over. I have now added Metamucil.

I'm the same way. I've been constipated this whole time. I tried miralax with NO luck. I'm trying Smooth Move tea a friend recommended tonight and we'll see how that works.

Coffee worked this morning but I’m trying not to drink coffee since the caffeine can lead to dehydration. I’m hoping the Metamucil makes a difference.

Coffee has never helped me. But hopefully this tea will. I need something that won't give me gas because I've heard after surgery constipation is an issue then. Stool softener and laxative always give me gas in my belly but don't help in moving me.

      Donated about 80 Shirts that are too large on me. 
       
      Pretty much decreased my wardrobe by 80% and have only a few items. 
      Guess I'll be doing laundry more.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
