my husband and i started this journey together Fall 2021, and we are tentatively scheduled for July 18. Very excited! Our adult twins will be coming to help us post-op.

I have gathered pre-op liquid diet items already. I like to be prepared :)

Good luck to you Edmira!!

So ... 4 Protein Shakes a day for 14 days. First 12 days I can have half an avocado a day and unlimited non-starchy vegetables. The last 2 days, is strict shakes only.

I honestly think I'm just going to do shakes only all the way through. Or at least the last week. I honestly haven't decided. I don't have to start it until the 22nd so I'm still tossing it around in the brain.

Mine is close to yours but for 1 week only. 5 days Protein Shakes non-starchy veg and lean Protein for 1 meal a day. Day 6 only shakes. Day 7 only Clear Liquids. I’m so excited and a little anxious. I can’t believe it’s almost go time!!

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.
