I'm nervous. Can anyone help me? Need suggestions.... [emoji22]

Me, I decided a month ago. My insurance gv me 3 mnths b4 my sx. Uuugh!

I hv changed my eating habits for the better. I just can't seem to get my cravings to stop in the middle of the night. What I hv done, is drink a 8oz smoothie to soothe my hunger pains.... Is that good?

I can't seem to eat 6 small meal in 1 day. Forget the Snacks. I can only stomach 2, maybe 3 meals & 2 small smoothies (ingredients I got from another app "LOSE IT") which includes cottage 2Tblsps cottage cheese, vanilla whey Protein Powder & 1/2 banana. That seems to b my go to snack. Most my meals r on a child's plate. meat, Beans & brown rice... If not that, just a bowl of Soup. I do get almost of my H2O in my system. But I'm still hungry by 230a! Even if I finish my dinner by 8pm. [emoji22]

I'm not an early riser (about 930) so I try to do by my meals btwn 10a & 8pm. Water is the last I do b4 bed @10pm

HELP!

I REALLY NEED HELP!

Hello

I have been confirmed for 4th January and I am also nervous. I met a lady last night at my husbands work party and she had it done in May this year. I am feeling so much better about it all now!

I've just joined up to this group to look at questions and answers online. :-)

I'm having surgery on 5th January so we are very close! :)

I have no suggestions on beating cravings unfortunately, something I struggle with myself. Very hard to overcome.

My surgeon is aiming for February surgery. Have not gotten exact date yet. Still adjusting to eating only 3 meals a day and trying to drink 64 oz water/crystal light etc daily. I am having easier time with the food than the Water. Looking around these forums for recipes/advice/confidence in this decision. Have to do 3 months prior to qualifying for surgery.

I understand you there but I convinced myself that if i start now before the actual date it wont be such a shock to my system later😳😁

I would make suggest not drinking the smoothie before bed. I know for me when I get anything with sugar in it or any fruits higher in sugar I tend to get hungrier faster. U should try eating some nuts or many something like tuna before bed and follow it up with Water. I tend to sleep through the night without being hungry. Good luck!!

Thanks Big J. I've bn trying everything. I did stop the smoothies & resorted to H2O.... But I still get up during the night, sleeping pills & all. I hv a hard time sleeping. I also hv a hard time w Protien. I hv more CARBS than anything. I'm cutting back on alot but everything, & I mean EVERYTHING seems to hv carbs in it. I started eating veggies ( raw slice cucumbers, squash, celery)as Snacks freaking tuna, turkey meats chewing more ( I hv lost 3lbs in 1wk) but those DAMN CARBS r everywhere 😭 not to mention the calories. I'm tryna stay under 1200 calories a day.

HOW CAN I REDUCE THE CARBS?! 😭😭

Hi everyone, my surgery date is 2nd January.

It sounds like you're doing a good job with your eating ChiNaDoll! Just keep up what you're doing and I'm sure you will be fine.
