Hey, May buddies. I just wanted to say that the pre-op diet is rough. If you can, start reducing your caffeine intake now (if you can still have caffeine pre and post op, lucky). I didn't reduce my caffeine and went cold turkey... BIG mistake. Also, variety in protien drinks is recommended. Im day four and can barely stomach my shakes. Good luck to you all.

May 2nd here.

On day 4 of Optifast and Water and having a really hard time stomaching it because of the metallic taste in my mouth after I drink it.

Not really having the "hunger" feelings like days 1-3 but do have an "empty" feeling. Hard to explain.

10 pounds down and the only place I can tell is in my fingers... HaHa

A few of us are on pre op diet now. How's it going?

My surgeon has me on it for 28 days, I'm on Day 12 now. It's going fine, I'm not craving anything and my meals are filling. I just miss having variety of food so I'm looking forward to having that back.

My plan consists of 3 replacement meals a day, and 2 cups of vegetables wth 2 of my meals. I'm having Soups and bars mostly, sometimes a Optifast dessert. I don't do shakes.

If you're shakes only stay strong, it's only temporary. We all got this, were all so close now!

Yes. Preop is rough. Mine is 14 days. So I'm 7 days into it. The headaches are getting better, finally. I'm so over the shakes. I have 2 per day and 3 oz lean Protein, a cup of veggies, and small amount of whole grain Pasta or brown rice for dinner. I can also have a snack of cottage cheese, fruit, or yogurt. Yes, I miss variety too. But, like you said, this is temporary.

I’m on shakes only and “clear” sugar-free liquids. It hasn’t been as bad as I thought as far as hunger, but oh my lord Day 3 was horrible. Caffeine withdrawal Migraine for 3 days and fatigue. Finally getting over that bump.
Good luck, everyone!!

Lindsay your preop diet looks good and quite reasonable, I'd love some Protein

LittleRouxenyhood, good luck on your liquid diet! I think liquid only would be hard, but it's only temporary thankfully.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
