I think we all feel that way at some point. I'm a few days into mine and it sucks lol... but it'll be so worth it 😀

I started today, too! For me, it’s just trying to break the habit of actually eating. The hunger isn’t terrible yet, lol. But we got this! We’ll be on the other side soon enough. 😁 Feel free to talk if you need some moral support!!

I'm not so much hungry I'm so much for being scuse my language on it but being b***** and look at a force of habit like because I haven't really eaten all day I like was on my way home in like Subway sounds good and I almost went to Subway cuz I'd like I haven't eaten at all today it's just a habit that I hadn't eaten that Subway was right there and it looks good but I didn't go to it I don't know is it just me or are you dealing with that

Haha! YEESS! I’m off today (I work in a hospital), and I did what I usually do on my days off: wake up and decide what to eat. I was thinking of all these things until I realized that I was supposed to start the liquid diet today.🤦🏽‍♀️ The hunger isn’t terrible tho. I’m sipping liquids all day, so I’m not feeling it too much.

You'll make it through, we all have done some form of the same preps, our bodies didn't react all the same, BUT WE ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN WE WERE BEFORE and when the "dismal" come, we can power through. And I love reading others journaling as they too make it through!

YOU CAN DOOOO IT!!!! WE can do it!! I’m so sorry you’re having headaches. I suffer from Migraines myself, so I know how it is. I guess I have it a bit easier than most. I work nights (3 12hr shifts), so I spend a lot of the day asleep, and I’m not much of a night eater anyway. For me, my challenge is gonna be when I go to school (I’m a nursing student) and clinical on my off days. Everyone’s gonna be eating, and I’m just gonna be sitting there with my Jello and Protein Shake.< span class="ipsEmoji">😩

Yes, its so hard! I'm day three and my head ache almost fully went away. The diarrhea is still here though and everytime I drink a Protein Drink 5mins later I have to go. Its terrible because I can't use public restrooms I clam up in them so I usually hold it for home. Its so stupid I wish I wasn't like that and I could get over my fear of using public restrooms for number 2. I see my surgeon tomorrow and its a 2hr away drive so im not gonna drink any Protein until I get back home. lol.

What really sucks is knowing the liver shrinking diet usually consists of one meal a day or two meals of lean meats and veggies. I've seen a lot of people on here get at least one meal a day so I'm tempted to ask my surgeon if I can have the one meal. I don't get hungry all day until late dinner time around 7 or 8pm and that's when it the pain starts to become bothersome. But then part of me doesn't want to ask incase he chastises me about it and thinks I'm not ready for the surgery because of it. BLAH! Heres to 10more days! 😟

I asked my doctor about the one meal and he said for him its not about shrinking the liver its more about if I could actually do it because I want the surgery enough. Just like i thought! lol He's like i dont care if you do the diet or not... its up to you of course don't go crazy and the 2 days before its mandatory nothing but liquid! I told him I'm definitely ready for the surgery and I wouldn't be doing it if I wasn't. That I would do the one healthy meal a day like a salad. He said it was fine. WOO!!

This is the stage where you build the confidence to know that you CAN and WILL do this! You are getting set for a whole new life and you must be determined. Develop a mantra like, "I AM NEVER GOING BACK!" You are never going back to a life of obesity and all it's related quilt, shame, co-morbidities, discomfort and future incapacities. You are starting a whole new chapter and YOU CAN DO THIS! One day at a time. After surgery it will also be one day at a time. Pre-op is the time to clean up your eating, get rid of addictive things you can't have after surgery anyway, and get some pounds off. It is hard because you still have hunger hormones in play, and you don't have restriction yet...….. but YOU CAN DO THIS!!!! And after this pre-op stage, you can do anything!

Y’all. Isopure unflavored is TRULY unflavored. I added it to my broth for the first time today, and I can’t taste it. It has none of that gross Protein aftertaste. I got it from Amazon if anyone is interested. I just thought I’d share!! Hope everyone is doing well!

I keep VISUALIZING success. I know me... if I sit around worrying about failing, chances are, I will.
You have to be the Little Engine - I **KNOW** I CAN! I **KNOW** I CAN! I **KNOW** I CAN!

Keep on chugging along!!

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
