Today started my 7 days of the liquid diet. I'm not really hungry but my head says I want to eat. So I think the hard part for me might be fighting with my head and not my stomach. I have always given to that little voice in my head. I have to stay strong! I WILL stay strong! I want and need this to bad to screw it up this close to the goal. Surgery is within my reach. Countdown begins now.

Just internally (or externally if no one is around or you don't care if people think you are crazy) tell that voice that it's wrong, that you know you aren't hungry or need any nutrition and that you won't listen to it. It takes some time but reconditioning does work, just gotta keep reinforcing the changes mentally. It does get easier.

7 days of liquid diet is nothing. I wish I had 7-days, but I had 14 - days and survived. Just spread out your shakes and use the time between to sip sip sip your Water. You've got this.

If you can, hide anything that is bad, out of sight, out of mind. Remember you've got this and a whole web full of supporters

OMG 14 days wow congrats! I have to many people to feed to be able to hide it. I'm trying to get them to learn to eat better. 1 hour at a time and trying to stay busy seems to be working. Doesn't help any that the house smells like roast right now....lol

      Well, I am still on schedule for a December 26th surgery, but no longer sleeve, but instead bypass. Here is a link to my latest YouTube video explaining why the change:

      Still stuck at a 50# weight-loss after three years. Starting to think the rest is never going to come off. I have decided to see a bariatric doctor, where I currently live, since I have moved away from the one that did my original surgery. Also starting to wonder what weight-loss percentage is considered a failure for this surgery. I don't want to be one of the unsuccessful stories, but I'm becoming very discouraged. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I lost the weight I did, but why won't the rest GO?!

      I have been very busy lately and my arm has finally stopped hurting, still no lifting, but my weight loss started up again so i am back to trying to find the right calorie number to hold in place. Its weird to think this way now and i am having a harder time increasing my calorie intake than i thought i would. It feels wrong to tell myself to eat more. So many years of yo-yo dieting messing with me right now. The Mental game just never ends.

        Wow, your arm hurt a long time. Glad it finally resolved. Hope you can get back to your weight training soon, I know you enjoyed that.

      2. allwet

        yea i had/have a pinched nerve at the top of the elbow and it is a very slow thing to recover from. The arm is weaker than before but feeling much better when i use it.

        every time i thought it was better i would start some form of training and it would go numb again all along the tricep. so its very light exercises and treadmill :(

      3. Orchids&Dragons

        Is there anything they can do to "un-pinch" it?

      4. allwet

        stretches and never putting pressure on back of arm, like you do if you use the bicep or tricep curl machines. Surgery is a last resort but doc says i need to try everything else first.

        The loss of so much fat around the nerve bundle allowed it to move around more.

      5. Orchids&Dragons

        That stinks. Sorry. One of those d@mn unintended consequences.
