Keep at it! If surgery goes as planned there will always be choices that may temp you. I wasn't perfect during my pre op diet but I kinda knew what they were aiming for. Keeping me in ketosis to lose fat around my liver and shrink the size of it for my safety during surgery. The first week of Optifast shakes I had a total of two pickles, some Pickle Juice, and 1 slice of ham and Swiss cheese spread out over the week. The second week of Optifast I had like maybe a table spoon total of egg salad and chili that I made for my family. All of these things I knew wouldn't kick me out of ketosis. But I did make sure for the 4 days before my surgery I stuck to the guidelines 100%. I would recommend sticking to the plan as it's for your safety and if they ask you what you had to eat be honest. It's better to delay surgery than risk your life. Goodluck!

Yeah I’ve given myself a kick up the backside! I’ve not been horrendously bad but I’m sure it doesn’t take a lot to make your liver big again.I’ve currently lost 40lbs from Xmas and for 95% of my diet I’ve been very strict. I just seem to be eating quite a lot of Protein and drinking a ton of Water. Hoping if I have a super clean week it will all be ok 🤞🤞

So glad you were able to finally go and that you are home now. I’m working on the liquid and Protein as well. I think it’s going to be a lot more difficult than I thought.
Yaaaaasss this!!! I’m still struggling to get in enough Fluid today. I just don’t want to end up needing IV fluids. I’ve been trying to take a sip every time a commercial comes on. So weird not to be “starving”. I did manage a shower today, that felt great. Cheers...Keep drinking my friend!!

How is everyone doing?

I’m fine here! Only bit of tiny gas pain in my shoulder.

I’m still on oxygen, have compression stockings and massage wraps around my calf muscles.

Easy breezy so far.

I have a swallow X-ray tomorrow and then Friday allowed to have fluids. (Currently on IV)

Be well everyone xo

Thank you @TheFlintstones, been thinking about you too. I feel like I’ve turned a small corner tonight. I managed some chicken broth tonight and a bottle of Protein Water. It tasted so good. Gas pains are subsiding. Still waiting for BM, will try milk of magnesia tomorrow if nothing has happened.

Hope everything is coming along nicely for you as well. Love all the support I’m finding here. Appreciate you!! ❤️☺️

I’m thinking

chapstick

Book to read

phone and charger

anything else.

      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".
