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!👍😛❤

      I can now buy clothes in normal stores again. Admittedly the first time when I started trying on clothes, I really had to keep myself calm. Normally trying on clothes causes me to become SOOO depressed that it take weeks just to get over it. Now, I have to keep myself from not wanting to buy everything!

      Hi, congrats on your surgery!  Saw you went to Dr. Pleatman.  I've been between doing the Lap Band and sleeve.  I was suppose to have a consultation with Dr. Pleatman this month.  So far great experience with his office coordinator Carrie (sp?).   Feeling really scared and nervous about getting the sleeve.  If you can share...how was your experience with Dr. Pleatman's office and the surgery?   Thanks!

      I'm not new, I was an active Lapbander from: 
      March 4, 2013   LAST VISITED
      February 6, 2017 Here I am on October 4, 2019 thinking back over my Lapband journey and how I thought I would be banded for life. Unfortunately, I have been sick for some time, and am on medications; and well my weight has constantly slowly increased. I was 225 pounds when I had my Lapband surgery on Dec. 17, 2010. At least my weight hasn't reached 210. I have been fluctuating between 202-206. For that, I'm grateful. I'm just excited to be able to have another tool to assist me with my weight loss journey. I'm not looking forward to the liquid stage, however.
