I am on my first day of the pre op diet. I am so proud of myself, I haven't cheated and I've wanted to multiple times. I know as the 2 weeks move along may get a little more difficult but hopefully I'll adjust. Anyone else with surgery date 8/28/2019. I have about 150 pounds to lose! Any advice or tips would be welcomed.

the first couple of days were the worst for me. Once your body goes into ketosis, it's not as bad.

Hi ,
I'm on my first pre op day and scared as hell weather I'll manage this .
My surgery is planned for 30.8.
I'm just two days behind you [emoji847]
I have a feeling that beginning won't be hard - first few days - but later on it will get difficult
Hopefully we will be successfull on this pre op journey

I agree with @catwoman7--the first days are the worst! Hang in there. Stay busy and drink busloads of Water, decaff black coffee, decaff green tea and your Protein Drinks. Also sugar free popsicles and a sf Jello per day. :)

It is not so bad , at least it wasn't today .
I'm allowed to drink Soups and Protein Shakes - but must keep my calorie intake to 1200 .
Right now I'm bothered by headache but I guess it is normal untill my body gets used to this
I will start taking Biotin and some good Vitamin and mineral combo tomorow just to keep my immune system in check
I even walked a few hours with my girl
We went in parks and she had fun
Hopefully tomorrow will be a success like today [emoji2]

The headache might be from carb withdrawal. I think i had one for the first couple of days

Yes , you are right
I have noticed it is normal in first days cause it is a huge difference in calorie intake and in makros it self .
But overall I'm holding quite well
Had no crisis so far or need to eat more than this
I'm struggling with Water ..
It is so hard to drink enough .
Thanks [emoji8]

      Looks like I need people around to complete a 10K.  I tried to do one by myself this afternoon and I gave up at around the 7km mark.  Gonna try again on Friday, but I may have to look into joining a running club...

      My Surgeon asked me a question the other day and i didn't give it a lot of thought at the time.
      He asked "do you tell"
      we were talking about peoples reaction to seeing me since i lost such a large amount of me.
      I answered that i do tell if they ask but that it seems most everyone is afraid to mention it if they haven't seen me in a while or they decided they already know the answer so they don't need the truth from me (we all know those types)
      I have had exactly one family friend come right out and ask me how i lost so much weight this year and i told her i had Gastric Sleeve.
      I am sure family has passed it around to other family (you have that type family don't you? or is it just me)  
      So that left me wondering "do you tell" and i dont mean right at surgery time. more like a year or so down the road do you say how or do you just say cut out the sugar and carbs and WAALAA
      Its a real personal choice to open yourself up to that kind of criticism and we know all about how we took the "Easy" way and yada yada yada.
      hope everyone is having a great week
