Happy New Year, bari-buddies!

This is the first day of the new year, yes, but it's also day one for me of my two week optifast diet prior to surgery on the 15th. Day one of getting my life back, of becoming a healthier me.

Thankfully I have a very busy job, and I know the next 2 weeks will fly by, and surgery day will be here before I know it. Then the real work begins. But, I will take it all one day at a time, and with the help, support and knowledge that is in abundance here in this forum and all of OH, I can do nothing but succeed!

I wish you all a safe and Happy New Year, full of love, health and happiness .

Angie

Congrats on your surgery date! Optifast isn't that bad and you will do well :-)

Happy New Year!

Thank you! Three opti shakes in and I would have to agree. They're not bad at all. I didn't know what to expect after reading in a couple of FB groups how some people really disliked them, especially the vanilla. That was the first one I tried this morning and actually liked it. Ah well.. everyone has different tastes :-)

Happy New Year!

Hi Angie,

So funny, you and I both have the same timeline! I also started opti yesterday and am scheduled for surgery on the 15th as well.

Opti has been fine so far, I don't mind the taste. I have been a big protein shake drinker over the years, so I feel that I'm quite use to the synthetic taste of these types of shakes.

All the best for the surgery. Also, if you're up for it, I would love to keep in touch over the course of our journeys.

Hi Shiney

Congrats on your up coming surgery! It's great to have a surgery twin. :-)

Like yourself, I've been a big protein shake drinker too, so I'm not minding the opti at all.

I'd love to keep in touch during our journeys. I think that's a fantastic idea.

Where are you having your surgery?
