Gah! So exciting that we have more dates!!! So, who's first up so far? I think I saw someone with an early Feb date...
I have my final pre-op meeting with my surgeon on Tuesday. Hoping to confirm a date then (though likely it will be the 15th). I want to postpone and ask for a morning time if he hasn't got me in the morning slot, though -- to reduce the likelihood of complications due to fatigue.

I'm probably the last, with a date of February 25--so I'll get to hear what all of you went through before it's my turn.

I don't mind an afternoon surgery--it gives the surgeon time to warm up! 🙂

I saw a Feb 4th date and I think that's the earliest - then there a group on Feb 5th, including me! 😁

I start my liquid pre op tomorrow. Nervous about it. I have 2 brands of variety packs so I can try flavors out. I have Unjury and Syntrax Nectar. The Unjury needs to be mixed in milk (except the chicken flavors) so I have fat free fairlife milk. I also have a few flavors of Isopure (alpine punch, grape, lemonade, & blue raspberry).

My program wants 4-5 Protein drinks daily (total 80-100g of protein) and 64oz of sugar free liquids. I am bringing 2 servings of Jello, 1 serving of broth, and a SF popsicle with me to work (12 hour shift). I plan to drink a 16oz Water on my hour long commute both to and from work. I have crystal light for at work also.

Seems like I will be drinking all day long. Good thing the bathroom is close to my office.

My surgery is four weeks away and I'm also still waiting for insurance approval. I would be devastated if they turn me down after all the work I've put into this.

By the way, I'm turning 60 this year. I'll take sagging skin over a massive heart attack in the next ten years!

I’ll be 56 when I have my surgery (my birthday is next week, 1/29) and I know the skin will be horrific, but I’m tackling one issue at a time😁 I figure I sure don’t look good naked now so I’m not losing anything by looking bad naked then, lol.

I started my liquid diet yesterday. Wow. The misery. I started w a chocolate splendor Unjury mixed w skim fairlife milk. It was excellent. Got to work and had 1 cup sf Jello. Later started on Isopure alpine punch. I didn’t care for it at all but there are 40 g of Protein in the bottle so I tried to drink it. I managed 3/4 bottle over several hours. Had 1 cup broth. Another sf jello. Mixed up a Syntrax Nectar but had to let it sit for a long time to settle the foam. By the time the foam settled the liquid had separated. I wasn’t interested by then. I also had 2 bottles of Water during the day. I felt so awful. This is only about 330 calories. I went home and planned on another Unjury/milk drink but ended up just going to sleep.

So day 1 wasn’t a success. I was short on protein. My NUT said it will get easier when my body goes into ketosis in about 3 days.

So so miserable

So far a little better today. I threw out my first Protein Shake. Not entirely surprised as I hate strawberry. I replaced it w a Tomato Soup from bariatric pal. This isn’t a Protein isolate so not really on my plan. But it was good. I have another Isopure drink, grape frost. I hate the after taste on these. I mixed it w Sprite Zero and its much more tolerable.

Hopefully I don’t fall apart in the afternoon again.

Idawn, I start my all-liquid diet on February 3--10 days before my gastric bypass. I appreciate you sharing your experience, I am not looking forward to this part as I'll be on liquids until about 3 or so weeks after the surgery when I can eat pureed foods. I only like chocolate Protein Shakes, so I suppose I'll be drinking a lot of those. I have not looked into any Isopure or Syntax products. If you recommend any you find for chocolate lovers, let me know. Also, I forgot that I think carbonated drinks are OK so I like the idea of using Sprite Zero with products. Hang in there and let us know what seems to work for you. You are on your way!!!! 😀

I’m a chocolate lover. The Unjury chocolate splendor is my favorite. They also have plain chocolate but it’s not quite as good. I am currently drinking Unjury chicken Soup flavor. It is fabulous! Much better than the broth I had yesterday.

I have found that when I start to feel like I’m dragging from low carb/low calories that the Unjury shakes in skim milk pick me right up. The Isopure doesn’t have the same effect. I was getting a headache while I sat w my friends during lunch (they ate, I drank tea). Since drinking this chicken soup it’s gone.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
