5 more days until I start pre-op liquid diet. Though it's 4 more days I'm really looking forward to when I abandon my diet for the day and eat the foods I've avoided since March. Sadly, COVID gets in the way since so many of the local restaurants I would love to order from are closed on Mondays, but I am sure I'll find something delicious.

Hello everyone let me tell you what I have gathered so far from using this site. FYI I am approved but no date yet I pray its sooner than later. I am starting the lived cleanse sunday anyway. I firgured while on focus use it to my advantage.

Heres some good stuff

*Premiere proteine shakes and Water are very reasonable in price

so far I have tried the oates flavored shake it was awesome! I purchased most of mine from Walmart and Amazon. I also have flavored water I will report in as I use them. If anyone finds the rasberry clear let me know.

* all of you are fantastic ! I feel the group share is wonderful to help someone others as well as myself ..Thank you

I was scheduled for July 23, but my governor just banned elective surgeries again. Now I have no idea when I'll be able to reschedule. I certainly don't want to be in a hospital with a bunch of COVID-19 patients, so I'm not really complaining. We shouldn't have opened as fast as we did. Just got my hopes up prematurely. 😞

I’m sorry to hear that. I know how that really stinks. Hopefully they will lift it soon.

I am on day three of liquid diet! This Sucks! The up side I already lost three pounds. Down side is I am craving all kinds of food. I am hungry all the time. This sucks and I have a toothache and I already had a emergency root canal on a tooth above it on Saturday and now I wonder if I did the wrong tooth or was it two. But I don’t want to go back to dentist and possibly screw up my surgery date of July 7. Why can’t things be easy sometimes.

I feel like your twin right now...I am on day 5 of liquid diet and tonight I am on the struggle bus. I WANT food. I also have dental pain thanks to an infection around my dental implant. On antibiotics now and so afraid because it is hurting today and I also don’t want to screw up my surgery by calling the oral surgeon’s office. Uggg! Poor us!

ps. RNY scheduled for 7/6

My surgery date is July 6th. I was supposed to start my pre-op diet on June 16th but because my surgeon requested I do Optifast and that was $150 I had to wait until I had the money but I started on the 22nd and lost 8lbs so far so I'm praying that when my next appointment on July 1st comes I and cleared for surgery. Also I think I am going to ask if I can do a meal plan that's cheaper.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?

      Slowly going back to old habits, which is not good. How have others stayed the course and kept losing to achieve goal weight?
