I cant have the tv on for 10 mins without seeing pizza, fried chicken, steak, junk food. This pre op diet is hard enough on its own! Comcast is trying to kill me I swear! Does seeing the stuff you really like but "can't or shouldn't " have get easier post op? These cravings right now are crazy!

It gets easier, I'm on my last day.

I found getting creative with creamy Soups made my cravings so much easier. I still drool over some commercials, but I know that soon enough I'll have my samplings.

Tomorrow is my big day and 14 more days of liquid diets... honestly at this point I'd be happy for the pureed stage.

LOL. I totally understand! 6 mos ago this was all still a dream. My biggest fear was a lifetime of Vitamins. Now I'm nervous and excited for tomorrow and the days that follow.

You got this, 6 of 14 is almost halfway and it gets better. I found progresso Soup chicken cheese enchilada soup, it was slightly spicy and flavorful. It was those Soups that I normally don't eat that helped me through the 2 weeks.

Im not allowed Soup. I am lucky in that i geget 3 oz of lean Protein and 1 cup of vegetables a day for dinner. Breakfast is a shake, lunch a Protein Bar. Sf Jello and popsicles in between. I got lucky that it isnt all liquid.

Spectrum , the ex Time Warner, keeps running the Humane Society commercials about dogs staked outside and cats with,infected eyes. Suppressed my appetite very well. Then they put on their promo ads followed immediately by Direct TV's Cut the Cable promo. Reminds me of political campaigns, just had a special election in my market area, all I ever got from this campaign is one candidate was a reprehensible excuse for a human being and the other one is a blithering idiot. In truth, they probably are very nice men. Gosh sometimes I hate politics!

And if that isn't enough since this was a special election to fill a vacated seat, they are running against each again in November. And they are having a recount because 1 the votes were very close 2,. They would not total the provisional ballots and absentee ballots until after August 18th. 3. The Republican is claiming victory, the Democrat refuses to concede. Our very own little soap opera/ reality show in Mid-Ohio. Further turn, I got "no,dog in the fight", due to gerrymandering it isn't even MY Congressional District, although I live 20 miles from one combatant, 30 miles from the other, still I'm in another district.
Where oh where is sanity and good sense these days?

Have DVR? Pause your show before commercials. Or record them and fast-forward.

Be strong. Focus on the goal. Don't put yourself in a position to make your hurdles taller than they already are.

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

        Those are championship cups for both you guys! :) I personally came up a 1.4lb winner this morning. ;) hehehehe.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
