I am finishing day 1 of liquid diet and it wasn’t so bad. I am kind of use to sugar free and artificially sweetners because I have done Keto on and off for awhile.
I am to drink 3 shakes and 2 Protein Bars and unlimited broth, sugar free Jello and popsicles. Oh and a boiled egg if needed. Why boiled egg I don’t know but I ate it!

I haven’t felt deprived but I will prolly get bored soon. Just hoping the next 13 go by quickly!

Good luck all!

Day 11 of my pre-op diet and VSG on Monday 10/11. I’ve actually been really good and have enjoyed the Premier Protein shakes and have added the vanilla flavor of Premier Protein to my coffee. I should have done that years ago! I’m down several pounds so I’m sure this liver shrinking diet will lead to a successful surgery. I’m stocked up on broths, Isopure protein unflavored, sf popsicles, Jello and cases of Premier. Let’s do this! 😆

I’m two days post-op. I’m struggling to drink enough liquids bc of how long it seems to take my stomach to digest these stupid pills. So many pills! Anyone else struggling with this?

So I am starting my preop diet a little early, I'm really concerned about the size of my liver. I feel focused right now but I am at work. I ended up just getting frozen meals because I love to cook and I tend to overeat big time. I'm so excited and nervous. Ganbatte everyone! Fighting! Let's Go!

Just had a gastric bypass on Oct 7th. Recovery is going very well. Still not hungry. I have been getting my liquids and Proteins down. I just have pain from my one incision where they removed my gallbladder with a huge gallstone in it. I walk everyday even though its painful but i know i have to stay strong for recovery. 👍🏾😌

I was sleeved on October 8th.. has some complications (passed out when I tried to stand up) so I had to stay in the hospital half a day longer but now that I’m home, I’m doing better. Got lots more Protein down today and about 45oz liquid. Doctor told me not to count, just pay attention to urine color and whether mouth is wet or dry.

I think my biggest complaint is a headache that I get when I’m really tired or when I was up from sleeping. I have my post op appt on Wednesday, so I’ll ask, but has anyone had to deal with a headache after surgery??

      I hit my stall ALREADY 🤷🏽‍♀️ been at 300 for almost a week. I’m not worried about it though, because I know that my body is healing. I’m not in a rush, I loss 30 pounds since surgery which was 3 weeks ago. I’m just going with the flow and staying positive. 😁

        It's very common. Give your body a chance to "catch up" with its new reality and the weight loss will start again. Hang in there, I know it can be frustrating!

      First Orangetheory class back after surgery! #347 for me. Determined to take things easy- especially those ab exercises. Looking forward to hitting #350 this week.

      I loss 19 pounds my first 7 days post op 🙌🏽 (Water weight or real weight.. weight is weight to me.. I’ll take it lol) I make sure I keep my water with me 24.7 and I walk every chance I get. I cook dinner for my kids with no problems. I have zero cravings!  By next week I should be in the 200’s. Haven’t been there since high school 🥲

        I had my surgery 11/17 and hit 299 this morning! :) Rooting for you!

        Congrats I’m at 289 now. Its a wonderful feeling, right!?

      Well, starting day 2 after surgery. Felling hunger pains again this morning and nausea, no vomiting. I think the hunger pains are coming from my stomach and not my pouch. Think I will call their hotline and speak with them about it. It is not terribly bad but it is uncomfortable. I do not regret getting the surgery though. I expected some discomfort right after, I just didn't expect the hunger pains.
