Hey Everyone I just wanted to post a update! I am in the 2nd week of my pre-op diet, and this week was all liquids. When I say I AM SO HUNGRY! OMG! I am trying to keep it together...but I need food! LOL I am not saying I need something unhealthy either just some type of food. All I can do is pray, and keep in mind why I am doing this! Surgery is early Monday morning,super excited, but nervous at the same time!

Ah, hell week!  It's a test - if you can make it through this week, surgery will seem like a breeze!

Good luck to you - I know you'll do just great!

Great job!  I am in the second week of my pre-op diet, too. I actually get to eat a little food along with the protein shakes. I think my plan is hard, but you are a true champ! :)

I really don't understand how all of us are having the same procedure, but we all have different pre-op diet.

I hear you and it blows me away too. I only had 2 days liquid diet before surgery. I don't know how people on plans like yours do it. I was so tired of broth even after that. I think I will kick the next chicken I see...

I understand I'm in my 2 week liquid diet too but for some reason I'm not very hungry. What type of protein drinks are u using? I'm using Muscle Milk 4 times per day & it keeps me full. My surgery is next Thursday so I gotta hang in there too!!! Best wishes

Try a few tricks to fool your mind into thinking that you're eating. Try some sugar free popsicles or freeze a protein shake into popsicles. Anything like that so that you're chewing and your brain is fooled.

I'm FOUR days out, too!  I've been too busy lately  to think about it much...  hard to believe it's almost time!  I'm on liquids all day but Dr Garcia allows a light low-carb dinner, so I've been able to survive.  I go onto clear liquids this weekend, then fly Monday am and surgery Monday pm.  Weird ~ a week from today I'll already be home!  Wish me luck & blessings!

And luck & blessings to you, jenamir21!

Good luck with surgery everyone! I just had my vsg this monday the 7th. It was not as bad as I expected. I didn't have much pain, just nausea. Still not as bad as I expected, hubby agrees. I can tell everyday that I am getting better. Its kind of nice at this point to be at home alone and have some me time. I hope you all have a smooth recovery as well :)
