Today is day one of my 2 week liquid diet. Just checking in to see how everyone is doing on their liquid diet if you are on it?

Are you using a Tracker to keep yourself accountable? If so which one? I am using Myfitnesspal, feel free to add me if you are using it as well pkweltz is my user name.

We got this!!!

I have surgery tomorrow. Two week liquid was rough at first, but got easier as I went along.

I did track mine with Baritastic, but I didn't really need to. My diet was 20oz skim milk, 3x day. Same each day, didn't really need to track. Just did it to keep in the habit.

Keep strong. You can do it.

The two week pre-op diet SUCKS but once you make it through that you're golden. Also it's much easier to follow the plan once you've gone two weeks eating nothing, just having half a scrambled egg feels like you're indulging yourself.

I also use Myfitnesspal, just make sure to keep up with it every day post-op.

Today is day 7 of pre op diet, I am no longer dealing with hunger pains. I do get a little lightheaded if I try to do anything to physical, ie. help move the dog house, and stairs suck.

I am down to 254.9 so I have lost 7 lbs.

How is everyone doing with their pre op liquid diet? What is your surgery date?

This gives me hope. I'm on Day 1 of my liquid diet. I should have started yesterday but I didn't. So here I am. I'm drinking the Meal Replacement shakes and so far I'm okay, I guess. As long as I don't think about wanting to eat I'm good. I'm just waiting until is time for bed. Hopefully I can just go to bed early every night and sleep and work my way through the next 9 days. My surgery day is 6/29.

My pre op diet includes liquids but during dinner time I can eat 4 oz of meat with one bread, one cup of vegetables and half cup of cooked vegetables. I’m going for gastric sleeve on June 29. Is that a normal pre op liquid diet?

There seems to be no 'normal' when it comes to pre-op diets. Everybody seems to have a different one.

Mine was two weeks of non-fat milk, 20oz, three times per day. Plus water.....

Other people get meat and veggies. Most seem to get Protein Shakes.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      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?
