I am really struggling with this while liquid diet thing! I have to do it for 2 weeks and I barely made it through day 1!

Are there any tips and tricks that you all have tried that help get through this time!

Just stick with it. The first few days suck really badly. DO NOT CHEAT! Cheating just makes it worse in most cases. Just struggle through it and just keep reminding yourself of why you are doing this. IT IS WORTH IT!

Drink lots and lots of Water. I'm talking over 128oz a day. This will help limit the "thirsty" signals that confused for hunger. Stick to your diet sheet.

Just stay strong. After a few days it gets easier. Try to avoid any and all temptations if you don't think you have the will power to resist. You can do this!

If you are allowed sugar-free Jello - eat it without chewing very well. The lumps slide down into your stomach just fine, but they take a little longer to break down and can give you a bit of a "full" feeling, or at least not an "empy, echoing cavern" feeling. Good luck, this gets a bit easier over time as you develop some distance between yourself and food.

I'm on my fifth day and was skeptical when people say it gets better, but it really does! After three days it's not so bad and soon you'll be like "oh I'm almost halfway there"

sugar free popsicles helps me a ton

I can't believe I forgot the most important part! The thing that really helped me from an emotional breakdown is remembering to take it a day at a time. Focus on only what hurdles you have to face today. If you look at the mountain of the two weeks you will get overwhelmed.

Okay, I’ve only done two days of the liquid and then surgery got pushed back BUT I didn’t lose any weight. Not even Water weight which confused me. So I took measurements and I had lost an inch on my waist. It totally made me feel awesome! So take some measurements!

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
