Pre-Op Liquid Diet Weight Loss



Recommended Posts

Ok everyone- I am doing a 3-week Pre-Op liquid diet followed by a 1 day Clear Liquids the day before surgery. So far I am down 14 lbs (still 11 days till before surgery).

What was your Pre-Op weight loss like?

Thank you so much! I am praying I can shed at least 5 more in the next 10 days!

I didn't lose anything, as we didn't have a pre-op diet (other than the day before thing) and I just kept on with the basic weight maintenance life that I had been on before.

A word of caution, though - we will typically experience a big loss of primarily Water weight when we first start a major caloric deficit program and then things slow down to a more sustainable rate as we get into drawing from our stored fat. So, if you see others reporting big number losses the first couple of weeks after surgery and you seem to be lagging that, just remember that you already had your big initial drop before surgery, and you are just running a little ahead of the others.

Good luck,

I will keep this in mind as I make it past this revisional surgery. BTW--- You have done amazing with your weight loss :) . Way to go.

      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.
