My surgery is 8/6. It's getting close with just under 2 weeks to go. In the beginning of July, my surgeon puts all patients on the Optifast diet. Essentially it is 5 supplements a day and one very sensible meal. We have weight goals that were set and we need to meet each week. Initially it was very difficult to not snack or eat the good foods; but now it is a breeze. I actually made surgery goal weight yesterday (a week early).

You can do this. You are taking control of your life; and for that, you should be very proud of yourself. Stay focused!

Nice! Just one day after mine!:) Your diet is similar to mine too except I need 4 shakes a day and the one meal. Id be terrified with weight goals. Definitely adds the pressure but its good they want you to stay on track. Congrats on making weight!

Today's day three of this diet and its getting harder. I find myself very hungry after work, especially at night. I've been sleeping early to avoid eating... not the greatest thing but I guess I'm more energized when i wake up.

Thanks for the support! I've been feeling a bit down lately and just afraid of failing. Gotta stay positive and focused!

      How can a bowel movement make me lose almost 4 pounds? How much poo am I full of?

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
