Well welcome welcome Lauryn, I am the OP the original poster for this thread, so it is rather my baby after all.
You're doing liquid for 3 weeks? Got you beat, I did mine the entire month of August, because I wanted my liver to shrink down as much as possible, and it did. Dr Needleman , my surgeon, said it was lovely, smooth and healthy. So yes it is well worth the trouble, for every week you do your diet, your liver shrinks 2.4%. And yes it can be frustrating. My surgery weight was 319, at 4 months out I am 260-ish, probably today 263 or 4, because I haven't done #2 yet. I had an RnY, and I am one of the complications, I am strictured, and I have healing ulcerations in my small intestine. I have a PICC line, that stands for a catheter inserted in my upper left arm, 12 hours a day I am fed nutrition that way so my GI system can rest and heal. Don't be concerned, in all the people on Bariatric Pal I am the only one, makes me special. Had it since November 29th 2018, got pretty used to it by now, don't know an ending date, but I am in this to win this, so no tears, no frustration, no bemoaning my fate, it is what it is. I will heal, I have two great bariatric surgeons on my team, they say I will end up fine, I believe them And in them.
Whether you are a sleeve or bypass, your surgery will be fine.
Thank you so much. I am also sending nothing but positive energy your way! Now I feel bad about complaining about liquids for 3 weeks lol

Hello to all! Newbie here...You all are so inspiring! I'm doing my pre-op liquid diet for 3 weeks. It's frustrating but I will continue to push forward. My surgery date is January 24 2019.

Started at 343 in February 2018 when I first saw the surgeon and nutritionist. I weighed 283 the day of surgery 9/17/18 and today I am 228. You're all doing great and we've got this! Being less than 30 lbs until I'm in the 100s is craaaazy to me. Can't wait!

Hello Ladies!

It's been a while. Still trying to claw my way to onederland. But I am hoping I see it soon! Been dealing with a lot of depression, anxiety, and health wise I feel pretty blah. I have some deficiencies going on--Vitamin A, D, Zinc and Iron. I am trying to be more religious with my Vitamins but it is hard since they still make me nauseous. Also, I am almost always dizzy.

Goal for this year is to get and be more positive. Welcome to all the newbies and congrats on all the progress!

Hi ladies, it's been a while since I last posted. My RNY was yesterday, the 23rd. Just in recovery mode and trying to take my meds on time. Continued success for those who have been on and have just started this journey.

Hey guys. Just wanted to check in with everyone! I seem to be stalled a little at 232ish. Ugh. A little over 100# down though! Everyone seems to be progressing well on here! I have found that I cannot tolerate 99% of meat and the Vitamins made me sick so I am trying to get Protein in with Beans and quinoa and the few meat sources I can eat. I have started doing the vitamin patches which is really a God send!
