So my 1 week pre op liquid diet starts April 26th (surgery is May 3rd). Just ordered Protein Shakes, Protein flavored water, and protein smoothies. I ordered variety packs of everything. I got Fairlife shakes (10 pack), Premier shakes (15 pack), Designer Wellness smoothies (12 pack), and Protein 2o Electrolyte Protein Drinks (two 12 packs). I got them all on Amazon.

This might sound really odd, but even though I have my surgery date already, there was something about ordering my shakes and drinks that just made everything feel REALLY real. Does that make sense? I'm more nervous about the liquid diet than I am about the actual surgery LOL

It does to me. And may I add, you're already looking much slimmer in the wallet. ;-D

Yes it makes perfect sense to me. You are getting yourself ready in everyway you can. Its like nesting when you are pregnant. I waited about 8 months for my surgery and I am not the most patient person. It was a trial. I wanted the day of surgery to come but had a 3 week pre op diet to do before it. Mine was non carb veg and skimmed milk. I worried about whether I could manage it but it had to be done or no surgery. I was bored of it by week 2 and I am a keen and adventurous cook. I couldn't wait till surgery day came and the diet ended.

I hope you haven't bought too many shakes for after your surgery because your tastes may change drastically, mine did. You may need extra toothpaste and mouthwash for a few weeks. Good luck, you are almost at the starting post.

The two weeks before and after WLS are challenging due to being liquid or limited. Good luck on your WLS journey.

That's why I got variety packs of everything. I don't know what I'll like afterwards, so I wanted lots of options.

My surgery is on the May 9th and I have been asked to start the diet on the 25th of this month. I think I have gone overboard with the shakes, Soups and Bars by Optifast. I Have also bought items for the week afterward. sugar free jellies and purees and sugar free popsicles. I have also invested in Tasteless Protein Powder to ad to drink and foods.

My spare room looks like a shop. 😃 I figure that I can continue to use these products after the surgery. I am like you. I am worried about the two weeks liquid diet more than the surgery. I am going to makes sure that I take advantage of what I have bought. I suppose our focus is on the OP at the moment rather than the journey afterwards. Good Luck to us Diva.
