I am legit hungry tonight



Recommended Posts

I'm at the end of day 3 of my pre-op diet and these Protein Shakes are constantly filling me up to the point where I've missed one today.

But then the kids wanted pizza, and I was sipping beef broth in another room. And now my stomach is roiling and I'm legit hungry for the first time all day and want to go raid the fridge.

Good thing I have to drink another Protein Shake instead...

On the flip side, doc had me cut out diet soda, coffee, and alcohol back in early September, and this morning I actually weigh as much as I claim on my driver's license. LOL.

Surgery is this Monday!!!

Hold on...it only gets worse lol. Lol- I’m joking-but it’s good to mentally prepare yourself prior to surgery because you will have the same challenge after surgery. I promise the cravings don’t go away. If you can tackle the challenge now, it will be a lot easier for you after surgery.

Stick with it. The surgery will be that much easier because your liver will shrink. Just had mine on Monday and everything went better than expected. You’ll do great!

You got this! Be like the little engine that could, instead of "I think I can, I think I can!" Say, "I know I can, I know I can! Finally you will be saying, "I did, I did, I did!" 4 days to go!

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the encouragement. I had my shake instead and I'm hungry again before bedtime and thank goodness I get to chew suger-free gum!

Be glad the shakes are filling you up!

Also I call BS on the liver shrinking thing. My pre-op diet? 1 day. Day before surgery. Surgeon told me my liver looked fabulous. MAYBE if you've been drinking or eating tons of fatty food up until your surgery date but most of us went on some sort of diet to get to a goal weight to qualify for surgery and I think that shrinks your liver enough.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
