Pre-Op Liquid Diet - In Full Effect!



Recommended Posts

So, I waited until today, Day 3 of the liquid pre-op diet, to post. Yesterday was awful. Total lack of concentration at work, perpetual Headache, hunger....Then today. It's like a switch went off. I feel energized, positive. Still a bit of a headache but nothing like yesterday. I can do this!! How did everyone else do on their dreaded pre-op diet? Did you ever want to cheat? If I had been asked that question yesterday, I think I would have answered differently. Today, I know I can stay on course. I need to do this for me. Cheating would only be hurting myself and this whole journey is about finally loving and respecting myself! WHOOHOO!!

The first 2 days were definitely the worst for me! Since those are done for you, you should be sailing smoothly into surgery! Good luck!!

I was sick as a dog on the second day, then miraculously all the icky feeling went away on Day 3. Just hang in there. It will get better. Hugs.

Same here... by the end of the first week, I was drinking beef broth and feeling like I was having a filet mignon :-). The first two days were definitely the worst.

Please do it. It definitely helps you prepare for when you are out of surgery. I just had mine on Nov 6 still only consuming Clear Liquids , ice , ice pops , and Jello . Avoid anything with sugar it can give you dumping syndrome.

The pre op diet has made me very ill. I go back and forth between awful headaches and suffering from nausea. If I have a small amount of food head and and stomach issue goes away. Not talking full meals here by no means. so now I find myself 4 days out from surgery and not having successfully transitioned to liquid diet. I have lost 6 pounds but worry that it is not enough for the liver shrink thing. Stressing over pre-op appointment today. Ugg do not want to mess this up. my total weight loss so far before surgery is 33 pounds but sense first visit is only 18 in 5 months.

      Ok , you can all have a laugh at my expense today.
      As a kid i never cared for PB&J i would eat one if it was all that was available but i always preferred a tuna sandwich.
      The other day my daughter comes over with an All Natural Peanut Butter and as we are talking in the kitchen she opens this jar up and the smell just about knocked me over. It was amazing. So i got a spoon and tried it straight, no jellies for me anymore, I was blown away with the amazing taste. Now i don't know if this a case of taste buds changing or just good Peanut Butter but that was a great treat. So i now have a jar in my kitchen and while i only eat a spoonful of it on any given day i am still amazed at how great it tastes.
      Happy Holidays, I hope you are all doing great over this holiday period.

        Haven't tried these. Sound good! Thanks

        They are good but...1/2 the cookie is a serving. They are BIG but I found that I wanted it ALL!! When we went to Juarez Mexico for hubbys WLS they saved him. At least that is what he thought. LOL

        Trader Joe's have the single serving size!!!

      12/12I went against my weekly weigh in and cheated today the scale says I'm 248 😂How? Maybe it's wrong lol I just purchased the scale and it's my first time using it. I'll weigh my daughter to see if it's accurate. I was 255 this time last week well five days ago so I guess it's a real possibility. I'll let you know , I have been very picky about sugars and carbs even though I don't have a huge variety of foods to choose from. I'm super excited and hope everyone is doing great! Got to charge my iPad but I just had to share my happiness 12/15 hmmm I guess this didn't post lol. Well I have more to update when I went to do my weekly weigh in with a scale I know is accurate this Friday I was 244 so even less then my new home scale (which still says 248😹) I am super stoked that all my good choices are paying off. I haven't eaten any bad junk food or high sugar drinks or excess carbs, It's nice to actually see results from a diet huh guys. Unfortunately I put too much mayo in my eggsalad purée and I'm nauseous 🤢But to happy to let it bring me down. Hope everyone is doing good and happy
