prepping for eventual surgery



Recommended Posts

i’ve been watching a LOT of vlogs and have seen several that weight comes back because of inability to overcome excess / poor diet. so, i decided to try a 11 day liquid diet. if i don’t have discipline now then i am unsure i’ll have discipline post surgery.

I am day 3 and yikes this is hard. i’m also a vegan and looking for hot / warm vegan liquids to eat. i’ve got shakes covered but i am wanting warm foods. i had some vegan vegetable broth but it’s 5kcal / cup and 0 Protein.

i am dreading a cold shake.

anyone else do a mental prep like this? lord if i can’t make it i just worry i will blow it post vsg and have had irreversible surgery and spent 5k.

tia for any replies / advice!

I did a trial run the week before I actually had to start my 14 day liquid diet. I just wanted to make sure that I at least liked the things on my list so that when I actually started, i'd be ok. I lasted 4 days lol. It's freaking hard. So I gave myself normal food the last 3 days of that week and started over 9 days ago with the actual diet.

I know they have "Sipping Broths" and I bet most of these things at the Bariatric Pal Store. Reasonable prices, great shipping time frame, and all things formulated from our Bariatric Viewpoint. Why enrich Jeff Bezos and his ever- expanding spider of Amazon? And I will tell you, I have been VERY SATISFIED with my BPStore purchases. Planning to redeem some more of the points I have accrued in the Near Future. I get even better delivery time than many things in my Home State(Ohio) and They are in New York!👍😛❤

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
