Hi everyone! I am currently on day 12 of optifast and my surgery is April 16/14 in Ottawa. I am very excited to start my new life and have had no problems with the shakes or getting my water in but my weight loss is slow. In 12 days I have only lost 9 lbs... Should I be worried?
Hello, I 'm presently on day 13 of opti with my surgery date April 17th in Ottawa. We will be in the same hospital, at the same time. From what I have learned, shrinking the liver is the most important thing, we can do. I have lost around 15lbs since starting opti. I to am looking forward to a new beginning.

I asked this same question only a few weeks ago. I thought that after only eating optifast for two weeks would result in this massive weight loss. I woke up one morning and was disappointed in myself for not losing more wieght! Of coarse that is crazy! I was doing everything I was suppose to. I decided to post my question to this forum and after getting similar answers as you've received , I decided for once in my life I was going to stop letting the scale control me! I put it away, it was hard and I was tempted but I didn't weigh myself again until the day of the surgery. In the end I lost 10 pounds with optifast, my surgeon was happy with my final result and so was I. Good luck with your surgery. :)
