My surgery is june 29th and will be starting my liquid diet soon, any recommendations of how i can plan out my day? I work in an office environment if that makes a difference. Any suggestions are appreciated!

I work in a call center and started it on Thursday, honestly it's been easier at work than at home :blush:

Spread them out evenly and drink it even if you aren't hungry because I've noticed that if I wait then the one 11oz shake doesn't put a dent in my hanger lol

Did they recommend a number of shakes per day? My plan is up to 5 shakes a day plus Water and broth. So I think I’ll be doing a shake for Breakfast, lunch, snack, dinner, before bed snack. And then other liquids throughout the day.

I was told to drink 5 Protein Shakes a day which was a bit much for me so I usually drank 3. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. In between If I got hungry I would sugar free popsicles

Start drinking a lot of Water, sip all day to get into the habit for post op.

Try and stick to your plan, but don’t derail all your progress if you slip.

From what I understand my doctors have 2 different ones. 1 is all liquid, the other is a shake for breakfsst. Protein Bar for lunch, 3 oz lean Protein, 1 cup veggies and a small piece of fruit for dinner. broth and sf Jello and popcicles if needed. Obviously im hoping to qualify for the second option...lol

Scheduled for July 21, started pre-op diet the 11th, 3 shakes and a light dinner but I’ve been on vacation since the 7th 🙄 so trying to be as good as possible with a shake for breakfast everyday and not going as nuts with food as usually would have but REALLY nervous what I’ll find when I get home Sat and weigh in for first time in 10 days. If I’ve gained any I’ll have just 3.5 days to lose it before dr appt on the 20th. I’ll probably be doing the 5 shake a day liquid diet others are on and saying a lot of prayers!

      Starting to see a rise in trolling of the site, anyone can make a profile and antagonize the good people here, sad. Time for a break...

      Just wanted to give an update. I've been really busy lately with work and my husband had recent surgery. I was off work last week and taking care of him, amongst a nice visit from my mom.
      I'm getting super close to Onderland! I keep teetering around 201-203lbs. Its been this way for the last two weeks.
      I went shopping this past weekend for fall/winter clothes. I am officially no longer a plus size woman. I wear dresses every day, so it's crazy to say, but I hadn't bought any pants since I was a size 20. I only replaced my pants once from a 26ish to a 20 and then I just bought size 12/14 jeans this weekend  And I'm wearing a large in tops (previously a 4X) . It was such a surreal experience going in and being able to shop in this HUGE section of the store. Although, I'm learning, no matter what your size, clothes are still hard to shop for. I thought size would open all these wondrous opportunities, not so much LOL.
      Basically, I'm keeping busy and keeping my mind healthy. A part of that is I'm not hyper focused on the scale. I get more comfort from the NSV anyways.
       I hope to be online more this week

        I'm glad everything is going well on your end. Family first, always and of course, but we do miss your presence here. Congrats on your clothes shopping! I recommend to not go overboard, since you are still losing and will probably be much smaller by the time it gets really cold.

        Way to go!

      2. AshAsh1

        @macadamia thank you :) I am being careful not to buy too much, but my weight loss has slowed substantially. I'm not losing 10lbs-15lbs a month like I previously was. I'm lucky to get off 5lbs a month now. Not to say that I wouldn't lose a size after a couple months, but it's not as rapid. Plus I buy all my clothes from Marshalls and TJMaxx (who's return policy is practically forever), so if they don't fit when it gets time to wear them... then I'll return them for store credit to buy new stuff.

      Stall is finally broken and I am losing again. Stalls suck but I understand them much better now. I am still feeling great and have kicked my workouts up a notch. I went to an arm/abs class that turned out to be all men and "me".  The dudes walked in with their 30 lb hand weights and I have my little 7.5/10 lbs and I was thinking to myself...what did I get myself into, and am I going to embarrass myself?  Well I decided to stick it out and although I couldn't do everything the dudes were doing, I did a pretty darn good job of keeping up and I am proud of myself for being able to stick with it. I decided I am going back again tomorrow and I am going to kill it again. I belong there too!

        Good for you! I'm still on 3lb weights :( But, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do. I'm glad you're feeling so well and able to work out so much! I'm sure that's really taking the inches off!

      The whole time I kept having a nightmare I wouldn't lose weight after all this. How horrifying to have it come true. I had surgery on the 8th. I haven't lost anything since. i drink my water, my protein shakes, I walk, but nothing. How could this be happening. Am I just doomed to be overweight forever? I am beyond devastated. Maybe something changes in the next couple months, but I am no longer hopeful.

        Calm down. You're still very swollen. Many doctors advise against weighing the first month because it can be very disheartening. Everyone heals at different rates. Just keep with your plan and you'll be ok. I promise, the scale will move soon - and BIG! It can take a full month for all the abdominal swelling to go down.
