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!👍😛❤

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!
