I will have my surgery next monday and am worried that I have not/will not lose enough before the surgery.  I am dow 11lbs.  This is the 9th day of my 14 day pre op liquid diet.  I am drinking well over 64 oz,  protien is about 100 and riding my bike everyday 2 1/2 miles.  Thinking I should be down more....

(Liquid as in ff pudding, jello, shakes, condensed soups...)

The goal isn't so much about weight loss as it is about shrinking the size of your liver so the surgeon has more space to work in during the surgery.  I only dropped 7.5# during my two week pre op so you're doing great!

Thanks,  I read about someone losing 16 and another losing 23. Thought I was doing something wrong.

Unless your surgeon is a far bigger "fattier hater" than most, it won't matter if you don't lose an ounce.
