T-13 Days; Day 1 of pre op liquid diet....

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

So last night I ate myself sick.... Well almost... It was my last chewable meal for the next 4-6 weeks and it was good.

I went to dinner with my housemate, Elena, and she couldn't comprehend the concept of going on a liquid diet cold-turkey. She said if she were me than she would switch meals to a liquid diet until it wouldn't be a problem; to which I explained that if that we're a realistic option for me, then I would not be obese. It is easier for me to quit and suffer than to I think about changing. It is like the thinking causes anxiety and therefore makes me want to eat more when I can to make up for the times that I cannot.

The biggest thing I will miss? Milk....

So today is day one of the liquid diet and T-13 days till surgery. I am reviewing all of the paperwork and it has repeated a dozen times that 1 in 200 people die from this surgery. Then it lists all of the complications that can occur and it is humbling…. I get that this surgery will not guarantee weight loss and that it is up to me to make the life style changes but I guess it is getting real for me…. Six months ago I knew I was going to get surgery but now that I have a data it is a bit more real.

I have nine working day left before my two week hiatuses from work and 4 or 5 doctors’ appointments before then so I am going to attempt to not be incredibly moody emoticon

    Best of luck to you. This 2 week liquid diet will not be easy but you will make it. Feel free to check out my blog on my two week liquid diet. Glad you had a good last meal. As far as complications and the possibility of you not losing any weight this is true but not likely. So be positive, get ready for a new lifestyle change and drink up!....Today will be the start of a new you. I promise...I will be 7 weeks post op tomorrow.
