Started liquid diet today



Recommended Posts

The first few days are the hardest! After day 3 I was a lot less hungry. You can do this! It’s only two weeks. Just count the days. :) good luck 🍀

It truly does get easier. Just grit your teeth and get through the first few days.

The liquid pre-op is tough. Mine was just 10 days, so yours is longer than what I had to do! Try to keep busy, distract yourself, if allowed eat sugar-free Jello or sugar-free popsicles to give the illusion of eating solid food, drink broth when you want something savory and just hang in there!

first off, i'm super proud of you!

the next few days are going to be hard - but you've got this! you've made this huge choice for yourself, and even getting to this part has been a journey, this is just one of the suckier parts of it!

i had to do four weeks of pre-op with my surgeon, so can promise it's going to get easier and you've got a whole community to build you up if you struggle!

      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?
