Why would you want to cut it short and not do the full time in preparation?

My surgery is the 13th of this month. They called me last week and schedule everything. So, I use 4 of the days to get my last junk food eating out the way.

Yes. The purpose isn’t to get you on a fast track to lose weight. It’s to shrink the size of your liver for easier access to your stomach for your surgeon. Stick to the plan they’ve given you. You CAN do this!! Just throw all that junk food in the trash

My doc has us on a 9 day Liver shrink and full liquid the day before. I can understand why you spent a 4-day splurge. I am looking at the cottage cheese in my fridge, wishing that I was able to get that in.

Hey - I know I caught a bunch of flak on here for having a "food funeral", but I have NO REGRETS. I was supposed to be on a 16 day diet with one meal a day and 3 shakes, and I definitely crushed fast food and Pasta, etc, on a few of those days as a final farewell. And I am glad I did. My liver was normal size, though, so I didn't need any "liver shrinking" to happen and no one was any the wiser I had *cheated*. I knew I was about to make a dedication to never have those items again in my entire life (something I will absolutely stick to), so I wasn't about to let my last chance to pass me by.

      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
