My surgery date is May 15th with Dr. Rosett, Im not nervous about the surgery, just making sure that I lose the 8-10lbs beforehand is whats bugging me. I been TRYING to do the slimfast diet before the actual 2 weeks so that I can get used to it, its hard, really hard. Are you going to the sessions?

Its hard, but I eat a salad just to give me a bit of filling. BUT OHHHHHHHHHHH when it comes time to do the liquid only, it will be hard, but its getting better. :rolleyes:

My surgery date is 6/10/09 and i quit chewing tobacco 4/15. This has been really hard for me to do but it is getting easier. I know it is the right thing to do if i want to enjoy my family and friends. Dr. Pitt and his staff have bent over backwards to help me through this. But i do know if it is to be, it is up to me. Most of the things i enjoy like hunting and fishing i can not enjoy because of my weight. How did i let myself get this way? My boss always told me to, DIRECT YOUR THOUGHTS, CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS,THEN YOU CAN ORDAIN YOUR DESTINY. I sure miss him and good luck to all.:rolleyes:

I had Dr. Rosett. He's cool, but I hear he's not big on fills. I haven't had one yet. I'll see for myself when it's my time.

I'm scheduled for surgey on 6/18 - 44 days to go!. I started counting at 73 days. I've been onthe Opti-Fast diet for 4 weeks now and am down 17 lbs. It's tough but I walk every day and try to stay close to the diet. I'm not nervous at all about the surgery - I wish I could have it tomorrow! Since I have more that half my body weight to loose, the sooner I get started the better!

I'm hoping that I'm a June Bandster. I have been to sleep study (should get cpap next week and have to be on it 3 wks prior), nutritionist, support group, psych, 6 month dr supervised diet... My sheet still says I need medical clearances but no one ever told me what those are and I've yet to hear back from the dr's office. Guess I'll bug them again tomorrow.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
