I am September 4th. I have to be full liquids by tomorrow, I basically eat between 7am-9pm. Throughout the day I have 3 Meal Replacement shakes. 2 cups of tea. 3 Greek Yogurts. 2 sugar free Jellos. 2 low sodium v-8s. 2 sugar free popsicles. 1 low sodium broth. Not in that order. I have a "schedule" I follow and eat/drink 1 item per hour.

Sept. 16th and two week pre-op liver shrinking diet started Monday, 09/01. I was a little mentally unprepared because my approval just went through on Friday, 08/30. It was like oh crap! Pre-Op LSD is Protein Shake for Breakfast and Protein shake for lunch then 4-6oz. lean meat for dinner with approved veggies list. Have to wean off caffeine which has been terrible. But I am so excited it’s almost surgery date!! I just keep telling myself how worth it everything will be!!

I envy those who get food on their liquid diet. My pre op is liquids only (shakes) 4x a day for 2 weeks. I’m starving

Mine is September 19th and I started my liquid diet today. I. Am. Miserable! I thought it would be easier. Maybe it will get better but it’s only day 1 and I’m already sick of it. This is why I need the surgery. I’m already ready to give up. But I know I have to do this and I’m sticking with it.

I messed up on my preop diet yesterday. I had grilled chicken and some lettuce at lunch and then baked salmon and green Beans at dinner. I am sticking to just shakes today and it is difficult to say the least. My surgery got moved back two days at my request so boo to more days on preop haha. But seriously though I'm thankful it got moved to accommodate work.

      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.

        I guess I could, but the idea of being out there for all to see just skeeves me out! Nope, not for me ;)

      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".
