Absolutely! I started my 2week diet today.. I think I'm more worried about that than the actual surgery! 🤣

its actually not so bad as long as you get plenty of Protein in....it has kept me fuller longer....sugar free Popsicle...jello...broth... ( i added in greek yogurt that wasn't on my plan...but has helped tremendously)

Not that i want to sabotage myself by adding things not on my list...but i have asked around and lots of people were successful adding it in...and i really feel that if i dont add it in.. i will just blow it and cheat ( i know my flaws)

you will do great...

a few tips:

Drink a gallon of Water everyday. I thought this was alot at first...but once i got started...it wasn't that difficult. And it will surely help keep you full.

Also, i bought Isopure unflavored...which is just a protient poweder to add to anything. Its unflavored and helps me get my protien in. I have been adding it to my broth. It thickens it up just a big and after lunch im about stuffed!

Good luck lady! Keep me posted on how you are doing!

I'm scheduled for bypass on April 26th. I have a 10 day pre-op diet that starts on the 16th. I am so ready for surgery! The 26th seems so far away even though I know it's right around the corner [emoji23]

      Stalls are the WORST.  I know they happen, but I am still disappointed.  I've been the same weight for over 2 weeks.

        I know the feeling. I did some major online shopping with all the sales around black friday. In tops I wear anywhere between a S-L. In pants from 6-10. But I must own the world's most elastic panties, because -100+ lbs, I still wear the same undies! :lol:

      I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness
