Only lost 4 lbs in 6 days on pre op diet



Recommended Posts

Does this mean my liver shrinking diet did not work? I'm scheduled for surgery tomorrow and am worried my liver won't be ok. Today is liquids only.

Sounds fine to me...did your doctor give you a set amount to lose? If not, you should be okay.

Sounds like you did fine. You could be retaining Water too, effecting the scale.

Thanks, all! I was just worried that it didn't work and my liver would still be fatty, and that would impact the surgery. Guess I'll chill out!! [emoji4]

I think you're on the right track just keep up the good work. I'm not on a liver shrinking diet but I've started eating clean & 1500-1600 cals a day and loss 5lbs in 7 days. I eat everything just in small amounts. My surgeon requirement was 2 days of liquid diet before surgery.

      Yesterday I "officially" eclipsed the 100 lb mark.  I'm sure if you're in any other country than the US, the 45.3 kg mark doesn't sound as much of a milestone, but it's very cathartic for me to post that I hit it. 
      I recently read back through both my BP status updates and my private journal and hitting this milestone makes all the things I "worried" about seem stupid, but I know they're not stupid because they were very real at the time.  Also, I think if I didn't give these fears my full attention, I may not have been as successful as I have been to date.
      I'm about 50 more pounds off my end goal and I know that will not be the end, I will continue to strive for bettering myself in both physical and emotional ways.  I have to hunker down and get this done. 
      I'm noticing if I don't exercise every day, the weight loss stalls quite a bit.  I'm not really into the 80/20 theory with diet and exercise, I think there's a genetic modifier that needs to be applied and it's different for everyone, just my opinion... don't hold it against me.

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
