So my pre-op diet starts officially on May 30 but I started yesterday just so I could adjust. Mine consist of 4-5 Protein Shakes and 2 cups of veggies . How much did you lose on your pre-op diet. I have to do this for 14 days

I only had to do mines for 5 days and with only liquids. (Sf Jello, sf popsicles, Protein Shakes, Water, Gatorade g2, and broth) I lost 10 pounds in those 5 days.

I guess I am lucky -- my doctor is only requiring a liquid pre-op diet for one day. And I have been told NOT to drink Protein Drinks before surgery as they cause weight gain.

Good luck!

I had to do 4-5 Protein Shakes a day plus all the very low (or no) calorie liquids I wanted - which included sugar free popsicles and sugar free Jello, both of which I ate with abandon because it was the only thing I could eat for two weeks that somewhat resembled real food. I could also have something like a cup of Tomato juice or V8 a day, and/or a cup of chicken broth. That's it. No veggies, nothing. I lost 15 lbs.

      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.
