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.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
