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!

        That really is a compliment! You must be glowing with health!

      Uh oh! Something happened to Matty this week. I was in a local Wawa (think east coast convenience store) and a gorgeous girl ran smack into me while I was grabbing a grape Propel - just couldn't deal with anymore water today. She was texting and walking ... okay, yeah, this missed me as Gen X'er. Well she looked up at me and flashed me one helluva smile. I was feeling pretty good that day so it was time to bring out some game, "So you know I can't let a gorgeous girl who crashes into me go without getting her phone number." LOL! She turned beet red, asked for my phone and sent herself a text message from mine. She said, "Because you men never call ..." I don't know quite what I was thinking but figured it would be one heck of a ride. What is it with me and short girls? I seem to attract them and I don't honestly care about height. She's all of 5'4". I knew she was young but it didn't occur to me how young. What did I just get myself into?
      I told myself no dating until the scale reads 190 but this new me is feeling sexually driven like I have never been before. Well, she's right I wasn't really planning on calling her so she called me. So I told her my age (41) and was shocked to hear that she generally goes for men older than 35. We must've talked on the phone close to 3 hours. You're going to think I am lying when I tell you she's a 3rd year med student and is interested in training to be a bariatric surgeon. The stars might've just aligned but I want to go slow and told her that I had weight loss surgery. She's totally my type - the professional, highly educated, and ambitious woman. That's what frightens me, because in the past, this has lead to unhealthy relationships. Well, I've got a date lined up for Saturday and I just want to have some fun. I needed money in order to make this happen so I sold a bunch of old computer equipment and managed to raise some capital for this adventure. I know I won't be drinking alcohol but that's okay.

        That's pretty damn epic man... Congrats! It's crazy with some liberally applied confidence can do!

        Wow! Way to go Matt! You sound out of my league ;)

      3. okayestmom

        It sounds like you are already have fun even before the date. Relax and enjoy.

        This post was just what I needed, I am tired of medical stuff today.

      4. Mattymatt

        No @MN_Meg770, you're not out of my league. You're just too far away :-( I like you very much and if you lived in my area, you'd be totally dateable. As I wrote before, having a type is not really healthy a thing and I am hesitant to get into a relationship with someone whom might not be very understanding of a disability.

      5. MN_Meg770

        I was just teasing you silly :) It is all good.

      It's more successfully minded to ask questions like.... When can I begin working out.... Or when can I return to work as opposed to when can I eat that or this again.....

      Down another three pounds and had my one-month post-surgery follow-up (although its actually be 7 weeks tomorrow, their scheduling sucks). The nurse practitioner was pleased with my weight loss (36 pounds in 7 weeks) and told me I was cleared to go back to water aerobics and whatever else I would like to pursue exercise wise. Now to find a new pair of tennis shoes
