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 have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.

      Well yesterday I went bra shopping. Again. I could put pleats in the cups of the new ones I’d bought just three months ago so it was back to the department store. Foolishly I wore a dress so spent an hour in the fitting room wearing only my knickers as two fitters (yes it took two of them) ran back & forth with different bras to try. Those full length mirrors & fluorescent lights are super unflattering on the loose skin. Yikes! 
      Of course I’m between cup sizes & deflated at the top so only two of the most expensive brands around would fit me. At least a couple I bought were on sale.  Sigh. 
      So I’ve gone from a 18F to a 14F to now a 10FF/G.  At least I’m in two hook bras again and not the clumsy three & four hook ones. They are soooo much prettier (all lacy & fine mesh - ooh la la). 
      I really need to buy new knickers too - those old size 16 boy legs are like loose legged shorts now - but I’m just not sure what size. Plus after buying the new bras I can’t afford to buy knickers yet lol!
